Burns and Fights

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 15, 2010

Good morning!

Congrats to Alexandre BILODEAU for winning the first Canadian Olympic GOLD in Men’s Moguls!!! So exciting. :) We’ve been watching the Olympics non-stop!

Happy Family Day for those of us that are treated to a holiday Monday today. I will be working for most of the day today as I have about 230 Glo Bars on the agenda, but I hope to finish nice and early around 3pm.

Eric and I are super excited for the Canadian Men’s Olympic Hockey that starts tonight tomorrow. We have been waiting for this forever now. It is also Jack night. I think today is going to be a wonderful day. :mrgreen:

So I guess I should rewind a bit and finish off my Valentine’s Day recap!

After our Brunch yesterday, I had to get some paper work done! It actually worked out well because Eric was in the kitchen ALL afternoon!

These are Thursday and Friday orders below. What a crazy couple of days. I think I sold 700-800 Glo Bars in two days! I had to prepare all of the FDA Prior Notices for the US shipments.

After a couple hours of really boring work, I was starving at this point and wondering when I was going to be allowed back into the kitchen. ;) Then he told me he was making us an early Lupper that would be ready at 4pm. Nice! He did give me an apple and crackers to tie me over!

I came out to a beautifully set dining room table!


A blueberry-spinach-tomato salad with my favourite wine:

Susan’s Vegan Green Bean Casserole:

Susan’s Italian Layered Vegetable Casserole:

Did I mention Eric does NOT cook and doesn’t like cooking??? I was seriously impressed he did all of this. He even dehydrated eggplant!

My plate:

I had two large servings of both plus my salad!! Plus more green bean casserole. ;)

I LOVED the Green Bean Casserole. We actually demolished it between the two of us!


The Italian casserole was good, although Eric made a few modifications so it didn’t turn out exactly as he planned. It was still really good though and I happily had two servings!

Sketchie joined us…he loves creeping behind the curtains (he thinks we can’t see him!)

Guess what? Eric got INJURED while cooking!!!!! He burned himself on the pan! Ouch. :(


The card that he got me was soooo fitting:

IMG_1074 IMG_1075

He ALWAYS complains that I steal the blankets (not true!!! It’s Sketchie!)

Then we exchanged gifts!

Guess what we both got each other?


Eric goes, ‘Damn, we’re OLD.’ and lame. Oh well. We needed them and have been listening to each other complain about them for months now.

We tested them out:


I also got him a sweater but it didn’t fit right so we will take it back and exchange it!

After dinner, he did ALL the dishes again. I didn’t know what to do with myself. It was fabulous. I felt bad because he was in the kitchen all day, but he said, ‘I guess this is what it feels like to be YOU every day!!’

Then it was time for my surprise…


I got us tickets to see AVATAR at the IMAX- finally after weeks of it being sold out, I ordered the tickets 6 days in advance.


We got there a whopping 1 hour and 20 minutes EARLY.

There were only 10 people ahead of us in the line up (nerd alert!!!).

I snacked on some organic dried apricots- one of my favourite snacks (and very high in iron for us vegetarians/vegans!)


Soon enough we were in the theatre…

And this is when it got UGLY…

The show was sold out of course. Those of us who got there early all secured spots in the top row. There were two empty spots on our row- one at each end. This guy was walking back and forth along our row trying to find two seats for him and his date. Then he asked all of us to move down a seat to the left so that we could create 2 free seats next to each other at the other end. Sounds logical, right?

He asked us politely to move down and we did along with about 4 other people. Then this guy asked the man next to Eric and the man REFUSED to move down. He said, ‘Why should I move down when we were here 2 hours ago to get these seats??’

Can you believe that? I felt like saying, Don’t sweat the small stuff and move down 1 seat! Arghhhhhhhhh.

Then the guy got pretty upset and then he bent over right in the man’s face (maybe 2 inches away) and he says loudly, ‘WOW THANKS I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!’

Then the man proceeded to get up quickly, and he shoved this guy- get this- so much so that he toppled over onto the row below!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eric and I could not believe what we were seeing.

Then this really old man got up and started yelling at the two men for their behaviours because the guy fell on his wife! Oh my, it was not cool. They yelled a bit and the guy and his date finally left.

About 20 minutes later, he came BACK- this time with security- and the man who shoved him got kicked out! So their entire party of 6 left and the back row, middle stayed empty the entire movie. Oh the irony!!!!!!!!!!!

Their wives must have been real impressed!


After the commotion, we had a great time!

I took care of dessert with two Adore bars for us! Yummy :)

I thought the movie was good, but not outstanding. I loved the special effects, 3D, and animation, but I found the story line was dull and boring. I thought the Avatar world was really creative, but I just wished that they had worked on a more creative plot to go along with such a fabulous idea. I said to Eric, ‘For such an awesome 3D movie, the plot was really FLAT.’

The last hour dragged on and on and I almost fell asleep! Eric reminded me that it was a classic adventure story line so I guess I would have to agree on that point. I am NOT a fantasy lover, but if you are you would love this movie. Eric absolutely loved this movie and wants to see it again!!

It was a really fun day all around! :)

I slept in this morning so I need to get my butt in gear and get my work done.

Have a fabulous Monday!

I can’t believe your movie experience! People are WAY too high strung. Seriously!

I am also VERY excited for Olympic Hockey to start. While I’ve got to cheer on the U.S., I’m going to be watching the Canadian team as well because Jonathan Toews = <3!


Heather (Heather's Dish) February 15, 2010 at 12:30 pm

wow, that’s incredible! i don’t get people sometimes…it’s amazing how selfishness is so rampant these days! glad you guys had a good time though…I’m so jealous you got to see Avatar! I can’t seem to get my husband to go with me!


Ally (Exercise and Pies) February 15, 2010 at 12:42 pm

wow, that’s crazy!! I saw Avatar about a month ago in imax and it was good but I was near the front so by the end of it my poor little eyes felt like they were going to die

And i love your dinner, I wish my boy could cook like that… he’s more of a meat and potato cooker lol


Lex February 15, 2010 at 1:04 pm

Oh my gosh, some people are seriously crazy! What is the point of dramarama over moving ONE seat?! Sheesh! You & Eric must have felt a little awkward – but I guess you got an extra show you didn’t have to pay for! LOL


Ashley February 15, 2010 at 1:19 pm

I adored the movie! Then again I love scifi.

I wish my SO loved it as much as I do. I’ve been begging him to take me to it again!


OSGMOM February 15, 2010 at 1:24 pm

Glad you and Eric didn’t get hurt in the Theatre scuffle! How awful on Valentine’s Day that folks can’t be courteous. I was blown away with the special effects in Avatar too but both hubby and I thought the storyline was flat,and I really had a difficult time staying focused after about 2hrs. However, I am happy we got to see it and find out what all the buzz was about. So happy the orders are coming in fast and furious!


Paige (Running Around Normal) February 15, 2010 at 1:38 pm

Omg I cannot believe that ish that went down in the theatre! Talk about some drama! LOL Kinda funny…but yikes. People are too much sometimes.
Sounds like you had a lovely Valentine’s Day :)


Anais February 15, 2010 at 1:39 pm

OMG that’s crazy!!!!! You’re right – their wives must’ve been so embarrassed :S Woah… I’m supposed to go see it tonight on a date, hopefully it will be a bit more quiet!


Jess - The Domestic Vegan February 15, 2010 at 1:44 pm

You know, I honestly expected to feel “Meh” about the storyline in “Avatar,” and I didn’t really even care to see it. My boyfriend practically dragged me to it a couple weeks ago, saying that it was an “experience we should see in 3D instead of waiting for it to come out on DVD.” I agreed with him & didn’t want to regret not seeing it – so we went (didn’t see it in IMAX, but it was still 3D), and I LOVED IT!!! Like, beyond loved it. I thought the storyline (while not 100% original) was touching & I was enthralled the entire time. I was dreading sitting in a theatre for nearly 3 hours, but it honestly flew by quicker than some 90 minute movies I’ve seen. Maybe I loved it so much because I had low expectations, but I actually want to see it again.

Anyway! Your V-Day celebration looks lovely! That story about the movie theatre fight is CRAZY! What’s with some people?!


Morgan @ Life After Bagels February 15, 2010 at 2:08 pm

WHOA . . . I can’t believe the behavior!

Glad your day was awesome, I also got a homecooked meal, which was so sweet :)


Cole February 15, 2010 at 2:19 pm

It sounds like your day was great, despite the sketchy behavior at the movie theatre!


Carolyn February 15, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Craziness! I can’t belive that happened!


Morgan @ Healthy Happy Place February 15, 2010 at 3:04 pm

sounds like a wonderful valentine’s day! well, minus the fight at the theatre! i’ve never witnessed anything like that before!


Kristilyn (My 29th Year) February 15, 2010 at 3:34 pm

That is crazy! Some people are just rude and there’s nothing you can do about it.

I really liked Avatar, but I didn’t think anything was that special about it. At least you had a yummy dessert to have with the movie!

How nice of Eric to make dinner – it looks delicious!



Mo February 15, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Wow – Eric treated you like queen for a day. That is awesome! The food sounds amazing and looks really good too! Happy 10th Valentines Day to you both! :)


Heather (Where's the Beach) February 15, 2010 at 4:12 pm

Dinner looks yummy. Fat Free Vegan has some awesome recipes!


::christine:: February 15, 2010 at 4:24 pm

thanks for sharing that movie story – too funny. I have to admit that I feel bad for the guy who didn’t wanna move, lol. I have been irked when asked to move when I get there early and have a seat in mind I want. I also understand him shoving the guy screaming 2 inches from his face – but that’s the kinda gal I be ;)

You thought Avatar sucked and was a flat story? Oh, Angela… I’m gonna guess you didn’t like Lord of the Rings either. boo.

Love you anyway!!! <3


Angela February 15, 2010 at 7:29 pm

whats lord of the rings???



Notesfromthegrove February 15, 2010 at 4:33 pm

What in the??? That’s the craziest movie-theatre storie I’ve EVER HEARD!!!

Glad you guys had a nice Valentines Day. Your table is so beautiful! Good job to the husband!

Funny story on my blog today. I think you’ll like it!


Jo @ SeekingHealthyBalance February 15, 2010 at 4:50 pm

I’ve heard loads of people say that about Avatar – looks stunning but the story is lacking.

Love the recap of your Valentines day. Its really sweet of Eric to cook for you and it looks yummy


Janna (Just Flourishing) February 15, 2010 at 5:29 pm

That is so sweet of Eric!!!

It’s funny, because my BF ALWAYS steals the covers. GR!

I can’t believe the fight at the movie theater. So crazy! People really do need to not sweat the small stuff…. and not shove other people! yikes!


Lisa (bakebikeblog) February 15, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Oh that v-day dnner looks so good! I love how he set the table!

BY GOODNESS those are some crazy movie ‘adventures’ though! ARGH!


Katie February 15, 2010 at 5:44 pm

It’s so upsetting to see people fight like that. We saw a really physical fight (resulting in lots of blood) break out just a few feet from us while in line for a roller coaster. So scary! I’m glad they got kicked out though and you didn’t have to listen to them bicker the whole time.

My husband says I steal the covers, but really it’s him that does. :)


Angela February 15, 2010 at 5:48 pm

I can not believe people fighting over a seat in a movie theatre! That’s crazy!
Your husband is so sweet cooking for you, it must have been nice not being in the kitchen for a whole day!


Carla Shorts February 15, 2010 at 6:13 pm

Sounds like a crazy night! Isn’t it amazing how angry and irrational some people can be?!??!!


Staceyhttp://stacey-healthylife.blogspot.com/ February 15, 2010 at 6:39 pm

That’s something I would do, bring my own healthy snack.


Gab* February 15, 2010 at 6:41 pm

That’s insane! Some people really take things too far. Crazy behaviour.

I haven’t seen Avatar, I don’t think it’s really my ‘thing’…


skinnyrunner February 15, 2010 at 8:02 pm

how sweet of eric to be your kitchen maid for a day! i love it.


CATIEDIDIT February 15, 2010 at 8:16 pm

After your review of Avatar, I felt compelled to share this:



intheskinny February 15, 2010 at 8:50 pm

When Jurassic Park came out year ago, it was really hard to get tickets too as well. I remember two men getting into a shoving match and one guy punched the other. Knocked a tooth out and everything. Awful!


katherine February 15, 2010 at 9:07 pm

YAY FOR GOLD! We are celebrating too.

I can’t believe the other guy didn’t move down 1 seat to help someone else out. Seriously now.


Grace February 15, 2010 at 9:10 pm

I loved Avatar (didn’t see the 3D version)–I want to live there, but I’m a fantasy and nature lover.


Leighanne February 15, 2010 at 10:26 pm

Sounds like you had a wonderful Valentine’s day. I have to admit that I loved Avatar, although I’m not much of an adventure/fantasy lover.

I love that you can see the “olympic” excel gum in your purse… sorry, it looks just like the inside of mine. GO CANADA!!!


Kris February 15, 2010 at 10:57 pm

OMG!!! What a story!!! Some people…..So much for nice Canadians! ;)

What a nice meal Eric made you :)


Julie @ Wearing Mascara February 15, 2010 at 11:42 pm

People are SO rude! My boyfriend loves to see new and hot movies on opening days and they are always packed. People get mean when they are waiting or trying to get a seat!


Betsy February 16, 2010 at 10:29 am

Wow! I really can not believe the nerve of some people. Like you said, what’s the point of sweating the small stuff?! How immature to be so stubborn and rude, and then to start a fight over it all! Man oh man.


Jennifer February 16, 2010 at 7:29 pm

I thought the exact same thing about the movie. FINALLY, someone who agrees!


sandi February 17, 2010 at 12:14 pm

do you guys like your pillows? if so, what kind are they?
it’s so hard to tell if they are going to be comfy, and work until you use them….


Laura Georgina February 18, 2010 at 10:54 am

I’m just catching up on my reading after a few days of craziness but I had to say: I LOVE that you guys gave each other pillows! Not old, not lame, truly adorable (and makes me feel like one of the cool kids because Mr. Laura and I gave each other a watering can and a shower curtain for Valentine’s Day this year).

I felt the same about Avatar–really enjoyed the effects and look of it, but got a bit zoned out on the plot. Truly, it should have been so good I could’ve held off on peeing till at least 3/4 of the way (but alas it wasn’t).


Heather February 18, 2010 at 9:31 pm

oh my gosh I cannot believe the behavior of grown adults, that is crazy! My hubby wants to see avatar but I’m not sold.
