Other Worlds

Today I treated myself to the movies. I went to see Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian.  It was good, but too much war stuff for me.  The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was my favorite book in grade school.  Even though I always went to church, I really didn’t get any of the imagery that C.S. Lewis included alluding to Christianity.  I was just fascinated with the idea that you could somehow get into another world.  

As I’ve gone through life, I’ve noticed that there are “other worlds” hidden right in our own society, and you are never aware of them until you happen to take an interest in whatever they happen to involve.  Some of the “other worlds” that have intersected my life are dog showing, angora rabbit showing, fiber spinning/weaving/knitting, rug hooking, and now my Bloggy World!  I’m glad to be here, and am enjoying the support and encouragement from people I’ve never even met.

So, back to the movies, I really don’t go anymore.  Partly because of time, but partly because I really don’t want to sit through a 2 hour movie without movie popcorn with extra butter and candy.  So today I planned to get the popcorn, and brought 1/2 bag of M&M’s from home, and a W.W. mint bar.  I decided to order the kid’s popcorn deal, partly because I am a cheapskate, and couldn’t spend $11 for popcorn and a coke.  I’m glad that I did that, it was plenty to satisfy me, and really, I am just as happy with my Jolly Time Healthy Pop Butter Popcorn or Kettlecorn at home. But old habits (addictions?) sure are hard to give up, aren’t they?

  1. I hear ya girl!! Old habits DO die hard, but the more often you kill them, the fewer times they get back up!! Good for you for making the decision to have your movie treats – YOUR way!! I love that picture, btw. 🙂
