Best. Summer. Evah.

Part of making a point of living an Endless Summer (also known as Summer of Magic, Best Time Ever, etc., etc.) is deciding on a whim to hit a 12:45 A.M. movie at the drive-in that doesn't get over until, oh, 2:30.* Reality is dealing with that whim Monday morning, when you gotta actually go to work. Endless summers should not come with actually having 9-5 office jobs. They should involve sneaking into the drive-in movie in question and getting to the left behind popcorn before the seagulls gobble it all up. (Hmm, on second thought, maybe not.)

*and, considering I saw the not-all-that-superb Evan Almighty, the photo above is totally apropos ...

Back in the day...

We would do 24 hour movie parties. The drive-in was a part of it. We'd start off watching a movie while having a pot-luck dinner. Sometimes the dinner would match the theme of the movie. (i.e. we ate rotisserie chicken with our hands and had gobblets of grape juice while watching the Holy Grail). Then we'd move on to the drive-in for both features, then back to someone's house with several vcrs showing a different movie - since it's hard for a group of people to agree on one.

We made sure to do it on a Friday so we could recover by church. You should try it.

You must be drinking healthy green stuff in order to have all that energy for staying awake so late at your advanced years. Either that or you're in love.
