Movie Ticket Stubs and Ronald McDonald

Going to the movies is a popular thing in America.  It’s something that almost everyone has in common.  The one difference is, the movies each individual chooses to see.  I always try to remember to save my stubs, as they bring back memories of the time.  So let’s take a look at some of the movies I went out to see in the last 12 years.

Some of these are good movies.  Others not so much.  The Episode 1 stub seems to be the most worn, but it’s not the oldest of the lot.  That distinction is held by The Other Sister.  I went to see that for the wrong reason, but I still enjoyed it.  I remember faking sickness to get out of work to go see Scream 3 with my friends(and specifically wanting to see the movie because I heard Jay and Silent Bob had a cameo in the movie).  It looks like I saw Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, 2 days after it hit theaters.  I remember not liking Memento, Vanilla Sky, From Hell and The Others.  I haven’t seen any of those movies since they were in theaters, so my opinion may be different today.  A few other things of note: I saw the remake of Friday the 13th on it’s opening night, which was on a Friday the 13th.  And The Green Mile is the only movie I can remember going to that actually had an intermission half way through the movie.  I could probably recall at least one memory with each of these movies, but I don’t think I’m up to the task of that magnitude.

And Ronald McDonald

I got this signed by the the Ronald McDonald.  I think it was back in ’06.  The McDonald’s I used to work at, was having a grand re-opening, and Ronald was being flown in to be there for the festivities.  Employees had an opportunity to get their picture taken with Ronald, and get an autograph.  The previous header to this blog was the picture I got taken with Ronnie.  He had a couple of pictures of himself and I asked for him to autograph one for me, which you can see he did(he even drew a caricature of himself).
