the night before our stars

Thing C is a fan of John Green, from Vlog Brothers to TFIOS…and last night, Thing C, YBW and I went to “The Night Before Our Stars” a special screening of the movie followed by a live Q and A with the cast, producer, director, and John Green hosted by my own ‘nerd-sexy’ crush Alton Brown. (They were in Atlanta.)

Thing C read the book in the fall, and it’s been sitting on my desk since February waiting for me to read it…there it sits, I just haven’t been able to give it the time and attention I feel it deserves.

We sat in the theater with countless tween and teen fangirls and their parents. It reminded me of when Thing 1 and I went to see any of the Twilight movies. (I know, I know…but she liked the first three books and I loved being able to do something she loved.)

I teased Thing C that he was the oldest fangirl in the room. (He wore it with pride.)

During the film, (Which, BTW, has the perfect amount of sadness.) I heard a chorus of sniffling, but there was one girl who was full on weeping…I mean old-time Irish hired mourners weeping. Then came the derisive sounds, I shot Thing C a look and he nodded before quietly whispering: that girl needs to PTFD. (‘Pipe the fuck down’, thank you, Jenna Marbles.)

Fangirl remarks aside…I adored the movie. I thought it was absolutely beautiful. The Q and A was fun. That John Green is an interesting guy…overly chatty and funny, yet completely humbled by everything that has come of and from his book.

I’m so pleased we could do that together, YBW, his firstborn and I. The experience was more meaningful than the movie itself, as it should be.
