Yes, today is National Drive-In Movie Day.
(Yet another fun fact you only know because you follow my blog.)
And something else you may or may not know about me:
I adore drive-in movies.
In fact, the local drive-in movie theater has been one of Jake's and my favorite dating spots. Two summers ago, we were there almost every weekend for our tried and true $4 double feature. We'd back Jake's Rav in backwards into the spot and arrange the trunk with a bunch of pillows and blankets, buy some really salty popcorn from the concession stand and snuggle up together to people-watch until it got dark enough to show the first film. The place was always buzzing with families - kids running around, playing chase. Moms calling after them, spraying them down with bug spray. Lawn chairs and blankets would come out of trunks. Guys would throw footballs around, sneak a pizza box out of the car (no outside food aloud). The air was alive with the sounds of summer. I can't describe how much I love that place.
So I was thinking, in honor of the day, why not show you guys a movie of my own?
Alas, I can't put it on a big screen and provide you with all the sights and sounds of summer, but perhaps the fact that I'm in the film will be of some consolation?
(I play "Ruby".)
This was a low-budget indie film I shot last summer. The director has uploaded it to vimeo for a limited time while he shops it around to festivals, and ever since I slipped in the mention of my acting career when I guest blogged for Lauren Holgate (here, if you missed it), so many of you have asked me about it that I figure, what the heck? Why not just show you one of my films.
It's really, really silly.
But maybe that's just perfect for a blue day like Monday.
So go grab a snack, sit back, and without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, enjoy today's
Happy Drive-In Movie Day!
