I did it, I did it, I did it!

I love this man.....

My oldest daughter, Lena and I went to see Alice in Wonderland (in Disney Digital 3D, mind you)! I choose this movie, because Of Johnny Depp. I would do (almost) anything for that man.

This is a major development for me. I have not just taken off and done anything like this for years. One problem was my adversion to being in crowds. Add extra noise and a lot of visual movement and I have a reaction of anxiety attacks. Thanks to some sessions with my psychologist and the meds they gave me I was able to finally go out and enjoy a movie.

We did the full movie theater thing. Hot dogs, popcorn, soft pretzels and drinks. The seats were comfortable, the audience polite and quiet...including the forty or so children there! The movie was really good, not great, but of course we all have our own visions of what Alice in Wonderland should be, and that would make the movie different for each and every one of us. The 3D was fantastic. I ducked quite a few times. Jumped a few more. Said WHOA more than usual. It was a great experience. About a half an hour before the end of the movie I found myself wondering when it would end, (not a good sign) but then the storyline picked up again and had me wishing there was a little more time left to the movie.

And then there was Johnny Depp. Like I said before, I love this man. Go see it! We went to a matinee which made it more affordable. I will be doing this again and again and again...
