Monday Evening

shadowkatt went to see Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World with a group of teens today, including new friend C (distinct from old friend C, and now I realize that I need use-names for both girls). They were going bowling, but the organizer was misled by an out-of-date website. We arrived as planned at 1, and the bowling alley didn’t open until 3, so we picked a movie as the easiest thing to do on the spur of the moment.

Again, the event was way too parent-dominated for a teen outing. Most of the parents stay with their kids, and several had their younger children with them as we’d planned to bowl. It seems to me, though, that a teen event should be about and for just the teens—and from what I recall from my teen years, having parents or younger siblings along instantly changes things in a big way.

Both girls want to see The Matrix Revolutions but haven’t seen Reloaded yet. I think we’re going to rent Reloaded and then go see Revolutions (possibly the IMAX version) that same day.

I am way too exhausted from just driving around (Katie also had a recheck with the eye doctor about her contacts today). Being out and about drains my energy to a ridiculous extent.
