Remember that time I wanted to see Beastly, the movie adapted from the book I just reviewed? Well, the universe sometimes listens to silly little wants, even if you can't count on it for the big things.
In advance of this evening's festivities, I walked into my favorite cupcake store to buy some Oscar-themed treats (ahem and ohmygosh) for my get-together. Thanks to my cupcake-acquiring accomplice's eagle eyes, I snagged a pair of free passes to an advance screening! A stack of them were just chilling on the counter, waiting to be given a good home.
Tomorrow night, I will be happily tucked into my theater bucket seat, watching two pretty actors fall in love...For free! All in all, not a bad way to spend a post-work Monday. (Will report back, of course, if anyone's interested.) Thanks, universe!
