In college, I frequented the theater about once a week. I know because I’ve kept every stub for every movie I’ve ever seen (truly), and tickets circa the early 2000s are prolific. Of course, back then, movies cost $5 at the student rate and somehow I had time to kill. Lately, not so much.
While Mr. T and I love movies, we see most of them on Netflix months and years after they come out (Harry Potter and sparkly vampires not withstanding*, of course). Even though we live a stone’s throw from a theater, the cost and hassle is often not worth it, and since we don’t watch a lot of prime time TV, we typically have no idea what’s coming out anyway.
So, the fact that we were invited to and participated in an Oscar party pool is somewhat hilarious. That we won by blind luck is even better!

* For me. Mr. T refuses to watch (or read!) Potter, although he is a good sport at watching the Twilight saga on DVD if coerced.
