Watching: BBC's "The Hour"
So this evening me and my two best friends went to see Rise of the Guardians. It was lovely! I've always loved Jack Frost. ^^
Anyway, our theater is designed with a railing running the length of the lobby to basically coralle you on your way to the exit. I swung myself back under it to go get some candy from the counter for the ride home and apparently my friends were debating going over or under it. It's a git high and has a wide, square edged top, so it's an obvious under. Apparently Maddie jokingly put her foot up on it though, before following. On our way out we decided to go back across it rather than just going out the main doors since we were parked on that side of the parking lot anyway. Ali started to slide up on top of it and then thought better of it. I sized the thing up, went "What the hell," and vaulted it - just as she turned around to look back at me- and did it very badly.
It wasn't actually getting over that was the problem, I got my hands and my hips lined up in the right places and was fine. No, my error turned out to be that I quite literally just threw myself over, and bent forward as I did it. As I rolled the rest of the way over, on my way to the ground I had a moment to think, "Didn't quite think this the whole way through, did I."
I think we'd all agree that in the end I deserve at least a 9.5 for the landing. It was actually perfectly painless, rolling onto my back and I immediately kicked and rolled to my feet, ready to go. Ali didn't quite make it though. She started laughing and about four steps late collapsed onto the floor in front of the doors. Yes, all the people we knew who were coming in the other doors saw, not me falling oh so gracefully, but Ali. XD
