So I guess I'll start with Friday night and go from there...
Friday was a kinda long day at work but not bad. sk_brainstorm
ended up coming in to work on his project some and I did some odds and ends while he was in. Later painted_wolf
showed up with dinner so we all ate nachos and cake and drank pomegranate juice. Mmmmm. After work we all headed over to our place to watch Metalocalypse and... I'm in love. I <3 Dethklok! There was one downside to the night (aside from me falling asleep during Metalocalypse): somewhere along the way I lost my wedding bracelet. :( I'm going to look around my office for it. There are a couple of places I suspect it fell off. It might also be in sk_brainstorm
's car, so if you're reading this Joe would you mind checking for a purple, green and blue beaded bracelet with a heart clasp for me?
Saturday ended up being a most excellent day for me and PW to just be together and do not much of anything in particular. It was awesome! We originally planned to go to the lake, but then decided that we would go to the river, but also figured we would like to go to a couple of movies. When we realized when the movies were playing we decided to just go to Campton and get chocolates from the awesome candy store instead. PW got the only blueberry cream, so I instead tried a strawberry cream. It's not as delicious, but it was still good. PW got a couple of other tasty chocolates and I got these very scrumptious dark chocolate, pistachio and chipotle pyramids. Mmmmmmmm! They had a respectable burn, too!
After chocolates we rushed to see Journey to the Center of the Earth, which was supposedly in 3-D. I was all excited because I hadn't seen a 3-D movie in theaters since Captain EO at Disneyland 20 years ago. Sadly, the movie was not in 3-D. Apparently 3-D movies aren't as simple as putting on a pair of paper and cellophane glasses anymore. It involves theaters purchasing expensive equipment that only select, likely metro-area theaters can afford. Newsflash to the movie makers: we're in the middle of high fuel costs when people can't really afford to drive miles and miles to see a quaint 3-D movie because you require special equipment the average theater can't afford: I mean, it was a kinda fun movie and all, but... without 3-D? Meh. Poor planning.
Immediately after we went to see The Dark Knight. It was good. It was really good. I don't think it was the colossal or spectacularly amazing film most of the people I know are making it out to be, but it was definitely worth seeing. I would even say it's probably the best Batman movie yet. Heath Ledger was AMAZING as The Joker. I like the plot/moral, but I think there are other movies out there that presented the same angle on society and did it better. I loved watching it once, but it's not something I have an overwhelming urge to see again. And I agree with fossilapostle
: someone get The Bat a cough drop. I think he's come down with something.
Afterward we went home and watched more Metalocalypse because it is awesome.
Today was church, then work, then chores, then finish Metalocalypse, then start Red vs. Blue season three. We also did some sorting through packed boxes to try to weed out possessions in preparation for moving into what I think will be our smallest apartment since we've been together for almost twelve years now. We're even finally weeding through some boxes we had in storage.
Bad news first... one of the plastic bins we used for packing and transporting wasn't as water-tight as we had thought. Water got in as it was pouring when we moved that load and it was in the bed of the pickup with all the other plastic bins. We didn't realize water got in until we opened the box tonight a month later and found... Mold. Everywhere. Yuck. I had to throw out the Charlie Brown hook rug my godmother made for me when I was real little. I've been holding onto that rug for almost thirty years! :( PW lost some sentimental things, too, and will have to transcribe some entries from a dream journal in order to save them. :(
All was not lost, though. We discovered in what we thought was entirely a box of antique dishes we had chalked up as completely damaged that only one item was damaged. Half the box was actually my blue crystal dish set that we thought had been lost in one of our previous moves. Yay! I've had that dish set since I first moved out on my own almost 15 years ago. We're going to unpack, wash and use these dishes when we finally get to the new place. :)
And to top the night off... our wireless connection has been behaving all night so we could do the intarwebz thing! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
