80's Sci Fi & Fantasy Movie Marathon - Sunday
Soon more people were waking up and by 9am I figured it was time for everyone to get up so I didn't care if I was making noise or not. We made 24 eggs, 30 pieces of bacon, 28 pieces sausages, 15 pancakes, 3 pounds of potatoes/hash browns and a gallon of orange juice. And that still wasn't enough food for everyone. I actually went back and made another dozen eggs and sausages. While we ate breakfast we started our fifth movie The Dark Crystal. Some folks loved it, others ::cough:: Chris, did not.
decided to head back to the cars but once again instead of all of use traveling back together the more "advanced" group decided to go their own way.. again sour Kenny had appeared. Don't get me wrong I had a great time with my group, but the purpose of hiking with friends is actually hiking with friends. But my group climbed this steep hill before running into a guy with two horses, Chester and Scooby. We stopped and he allowed us to pet the horses. It was actually a nice hike back as we just walked in groups and chatted.
About fifteen minutes later the "advanced" group made it back to the cars and we headed back to my place. I was in a foul mood now and was really trying to not let the hike ruin this fantastic weekend. BTW I hate myself for allowing me to get so upset over something so stupid. But I guess the years of feeling like an outsider came back to me during that hike, when I once again felt very much like an outsider.
Once back the remaining guests sat down to watch our sixth and final film Willow. Willow is one of my all time favorite fantasy movies and it seemed that everyone really enjoyed it. Once the movie was over slowly everyone said their goodbyes and gave hugs all around until it was just Josh, Nicole and I. We sat around chatting until around 9:30pm then those two left, thus ending an incredible 80's Scifi and Fantasy Movie Marathon Weekend.
The day started out great, then got a little bumpy during the hike, but ended on a great note. I know that I will not have another large party like this. There were just to many people and me being a people pleaser it's to much work to make sure everyone is having fun, were in as I don't have any fun. But I think it was another successful movie marathon weekend. Thank you everyone who attended. I would list everyone's name as I've done in the past but I know I would miss someone so I'll leave it at "you know who you are". Can't wait for the next one Jurassic Park Movie Marathon in March.
