Root Beer Film Festival

My wife will be camping this weekend, and my son will be with my parents. Which means I will have the house to myself for about 36 hours. So what will I be doing with this 36 hours of glorious freedom? Will I be throwing a party that will eventually involve the police saying something like, “Aren’t you a little too old for this?” No. I will be watching a ton of movies, and drinking a ton of root beer.

I fully planned on having some people over at least one night, but for the past week I’ve been fighting pink eye. This has led to a fever, a sore throat, gunky icky eyes, and even now while I recover I sound like I could fill-in as host of your favorite local NPR jazz show. I have come to face the fact that I am an adult with a job, a family, and bills…so many bills. Which means that instead of being stupid and not recovering I will sit on the couch, watch movies and drink root beer.

Here are the movies I hope to watch this weekend:
