We didn't settle for a Sunday afternoon; we didn't settle for a rainy day.
It had to be a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Then it came, and it was perfect.

We had pizza and a beer with it, which kind of makes it THE perfect movie night. 
Well, Sunday afternoon; rainy, Sunday afternoon.
Of course, if there's anything that might keep the competition up, that's popcorn.
And when I say popcorn, I mean home-made popcorn. Nothing compares to warm popcorn dowsed with melted butter and freshly chopped rosemary. 

- corn oil
- popcorn corn seed
          Optional (well, not really, but still): 
                                                               - butter
                                                               - rosemary; or any other herb or whatever thing you feel like adding

1- Pour some corn oil on the bottom of a big pot, just enough to cover it
2- For two people and a full pot of popcorn, I normally use half a cup of seeds. Although it has to be said that, normally, when we have popcorn we have it for dinner. Like a real, satisfying dinner. Just so you can take your measures.
3- Set the pot on a medium fire and cover it with its lid. Then... wait for the popping!!! Seriously, that's too exciting. Like fireworks. Just with less lights.
4- Well, when all the popping is over, yours popcorn are really likely to be done. Prepare to wonder and remove the lid.

5- For all the butter lovers out there, in the meanwhile you might want to melt some butter in a pan, add your chopped rosemary at last and pour it all over your popcorn. Sprinkle of salt, a good shake and you're ready to go.
