Like ever ever.
There isn't a single scene that doesn't make me laugh. I love them all. I have Elf on DVD, it's on my phone, my computer and my iPad. Elf is with me at all times.
I also "host" an annual Elf watching party at work the week of Christmas. We've done this for years and years. We order up a bunch of pizzas, pop in Elf and laugh our heads off. Of course, being that we are at work on our lunch break, we can only watch a portion of the movie. But it doesn't matter because we've all seen it a zillion times (okay, maybe I'm the only one who has seen is a zillion times.) So missing half of the film doesn't take away from the experience. Some years we start from the beginning, others the middle. I love every half of this movie.
Elf is so quotable. And if you know me but at all, you know that I can identify with Buddy and his nutritional preferences. "We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup." All my favorite foods! I mean, this Pink Girl fuels for marathons with candy corn!
So this year we mixed things up a little and in addition to pizza we enjoyed spaghetti. Elf style. Oh yes we did.
Of course I made whole grain pasta and brought organic syrup. My friend Ryan brought pop tarts and m&ms. We didn't include chocolate syrup and marshmallows lest things get completely out of control.
And then we ate. Yes, I ate it. An entire plate actually.You know what? It wasn't bad! It was incredibly sweet and the texture was kind of strange...slippery pasta with you know, m&ms and pop tart bits. But it wasn't gross. Okay, I think it kind of grossed everyone out to watch, but it wasn't gross to eat! Mostly I think my friends were shocked to see me eat pop tarts and candy - that's not my normal lunch for sure!
Like I said, it wasn't gross. But oh, my cries, about a half hour later I was regretting it. I felt so sick from all that sugar! Yuck-o! Lesson learned.
So don't anyone ever call me a picky eater. Until you've eaten spaghetti with syrup, pop tarts and candy there will be NO finger pointing!
What's the strangest thing you've ever eaten just for fun?
