Wanna catch a movie?

A couple of days ago I got an e-mail invitation from Dorky Dad's Facebook page. He invited me to check out our movie compatibility. How could I resist? I mean, if we only lived about 1300 miles closer together, we might even be able to catch a movie together. Just two good blogger buddies hanging out at the cinema.

But then I took the little quiz. Oops!

While we scored as "casual buddies", it seems clear that if we tried to choose a comedy we would both enjoy, the entire outing would end in a war of raisinetes and goobers. On the other hand, we do seem pretty compatible on the...uhhh...love stuff. But I don't think I'm driving 1300 miles just so Dorky Dad and I can share a box of kleenex while we sniff our way through The Way We Were.

But the fun thing about this Facebook movie compatibility test was that it also let me compare my score to any other friends who had taken the quiz. Again, how could I resist?

And who would I match up with best? Jessica from Oh The Joys!

It looks like we could spend a fun evening at the movies and not have any difficulty at all in finding a movie we would both enjoy. Sounds good to me!

So Jessica, just let me know when you're free and I'll meet you in the lobby.

I'll be the one in the Park Ranger outfit. ;)

I'm on facebook and I've done the movie quiz too. My wife and I came out as "soul mates."

Maybe I'll try to look you up on there.

I didn't score so great with Dorky Dad, either. But I'd go see just about any movie with just about anyone if it included a box of Goobers. I luvs me some Goobers.

Sheila said...

Em said...

Oh Jen, we would be a great movie duo...I love me some goobers!

Those tests are so much fun.

Sorry you and Dorky Dad aren't more compatible.

Melody said...

I'm best friends with a few friends on Facebook. I do have one that is 'run away fast!' too!! Lol!!

Trish said...

LOL...you're a facebook junkie! Welcome.

Except that I don't share my candy very well. Especially the chocolate covered raisins...

Don't make that lobby location public, there may be enough Park Rangers showing up to handle Yellowstone!

FENICLE said...

How funny! You two should totally go out!!! Hell, bring the kids too.

Kati said...

ROFL Hey, I'm on facebook too!!!! How does one go about finding another on facebook???? If you can find me, I'll add you to my friends list, too!!! ;)

Sorry you & DorkyDad won't be going to see any movies together any time soon.

You are DD's facebook friend? Me too! Seriously, how much time does he spend blogging and facebooking? *ahem, I totally never waste time like that...

Em said...

Trish, not sure I'm a "junkie"...more like a "newbie". Cause there is Kati saying she will be my friend, but I have no idea how to find her. LOL

I don't have the time or energy to add facebook to my internet life. And I rarely see movies at the theater. I'm a Netflix kind of person.

Dorky Dad said...

Hey, it's not my fault you don't have any taste in comedies.

I love that movie compatibility test. It's one of my favorite things on Facebook. One real good friend of mine scored a "run away fast." And Sunshine is my movie soulmate, apparently.

I need to learn how to use facebook, seems to be overtaking the blog world

Zoely said...

LOL i don't really do movies so maybe we could get together & read? thanks for stopping by my site today! ;-}}

Kati said...

Hey Em.... My name is listed as Katharine, my home town is up there, um, if there's any way to search for these two factors then you should be able to find my profile on facebook. Other than the fact that I'm using my full first name, instead of the name I usually go for, my profile is the same as all the info on my blog.
