Girl's Night Out

I had a Girl's Night Out last night. We went to PF Changs where I had the double pan fried noodles (why fry something once when twice is so nice?) AND some spring rolls AND a little mini chocolate mousse dessert thingy. It was delish. Then we went to see Bridesmaids, which was seriously the FUNNIEST movie I've seen in years. YEARS, people. I almost peed my pants I laughed so hard.

Speaking of peeing during movies, did you know there is an app for that? My friend Meg told us about it last night. You tell the app what movie you're seeing and then you press go or some such button right when the movie starts. The app will then tell you the optimal times for getting up to go pee during the movie! And THEN, while you're in the bathroom, the app will tell you what you're missing while you're peeing!! Genius, I tell you. Man, I really need to get an iPhone.

In other news, I almost got arrested between dinner and the movie. Twice.

See, I got in my car and was happily driving along following Meg's big black car when I realized my phone (not an iPhone) was making funny sounds. So I looked at it, and realized I had pocket dialed somebody. No big whoop, right? Except I had pocket dialed 911. Yes. I HAD POCKET DIALED 911.

So what did I do? Well, I panicked and hung up of course. And then my phone flashed this weird message that said something like "Emergency Callback Mode", so I panicked EVEN MORE and then popped the battery out of my phone. I don't know why I did all this. I have a strong flight instinct when things start to go wrong so I was in major "la-la-la they'll never know it was me!!!!" mode when making these split decisions.

Then, while I was distracted with the 911 incident, traffic slowed to a halt and my friend Meg veered off suddenly on an exit. I was like "whoa Meg, you crazy," but I followed her anyway because I figured she knew a traffic shortcut or something. Except then I realized that the big black car I was following was not actually Meg's. So that was unfortunate.

So I started to go a new way to the movie theater since I had taken this random exit, and yes, I was driving a little too fast because by this time I knew all my girlfriends would already be at the theater. So I'm flying down this hill, when I spot the fuzz (is that what you call them?) in a neighborhood pointing the radar gun at me. Now I TOTALLY panicked because (1) OMG speeding ticket, and (2) what if there was already an APB out for me because I just prank called 911??? Jimminy Christmas.

Thankfully I didn't get pulled over, but I was so busy watching for the cop in my rear view that I drove right past the movie theater. So then I had to find ANOTHER new way to the movie theater and by this time I was totally late. Gah.

Once I finally got there I was so stressed out I spilled everything to my friends. Since they are sane and rational people, they convinced me to put the battery back in my phone and my wonderful friend Anne even promised to answer it if 911 called looking for me.

Thankfully the movie was freaking hilarious so I stopped stressing. Although all the cop scenes in the movie did give me a little PTSD, I think.

Moral of the Story: Don't prank call 911. And if you do, just talk to the person who answers because it's probably not that big of a deal. Also, learn what type of car your friends drive. And don't speed. And pay attention to where you're going.

Or maybe just ride with one of your friends to the movie theater. That seems way easier.

Love it!

And clearly I am STARVING as I'm drooling at just reading about your supper :)

Laura said...

Oooh, I so want to see that movie! Hoping I can convince hubby quickly so we can see it this weekend while we have a babysitter!

That app sounds freaken awesome, and I would probably do the same if I pocket dialed the emergency services! I seem to have this completely irrational fear of talking on the phone to people I don't know...

Oh my gosh, great story!

I really need that app (and an iPhone haha) because I get up to pee a lot !

Suze said...

Totally LOL right now! Glad the movie was worth it - I really want to see it too!

Reading this over lunch at work and I just laughed out loud in my cube :-)

Ruth Anne said...

ha ha! you so funny! :-D

I watched Bridesmaids also, and it was hilarious... but the ending totally grossed me out. As in, the last scene with the sandwich. BLECH.

I have never been to PF Changs. Do you pity me? You should.

I'm glad you got a girls night out, and I'm glad you didn't get arrested. Although, I think you'd get tons of new followers if you started posting from jail.

I'm so glad you didn't get arrested. :)

Sounds like you had a fun and interesting night! :D

Have a great weekend!

This is SO something that I would do! Maybe we should get together!!!

I have heard good things about that movie!

Jen said...

You are so funny. We totally need to hang out someday.

also. i need to get that app. after i get an iphone. so basically. i'm gonna be sitting through the entire movie holding in my pee.

Kim said...

couple of things:
1) that is the first app that I've ever heard of that makes me want to buy an iphone...JUST so I can have the app
2) is there some kind of spell you have on your owls? Sam insists that I go to your page and then just stares at them whispering "owls...owls...owls...sleeping....owls..."

Barbara Manatee said...

ha!! what a comedy of errors!!

We went to see Bridesmaids this weekend, too. I didn't pee my pants but it was pretty funny!

WTH? do people REALLY need an app to know when to pee?? seriously...

Brandy@YDK said...

that app sounds awesome. I don't go to the movies enough to justify it.

Wow! You know how to do a GNO. Good food, a movie, and almost 2 arrests!
