Thank you all for your book suggestions. I have much to consider, most importantly how I will fit in all of the reading I plan to do given the whole “three kids” thing I have going on here. Once again the weekend was rainy, so we spent most of it indoors wishing we weren’t. Michael and I did manage to hire a babysitter and have our first night out without the kids in over two months. Very good times.
We had sushi then topped it off with an ice cream before going to the movies to see Robin Hood. Oh Russell Crowe, you do age well. At least I think so. If was hard to see beyond the simultaneous French and German subtitles. Exactly half way through the movie, the film cut out abruptly and flashed an advertisement for ice cream. In unison, the audience sighed audibly then immediately vacated the theater. Being the sophisticate that I am, I knew that it was the customary and completely unnecessary, ill timed intermission. Michael on the other hand was in a rare state of confusion. He could not imagine why an entire theater of people would give up and leave within seconds of a technical glitch. He was ready to camp out in protest if need be. It turns out that wasn’t necessary, it was just a ruse to get folks to part with their swiss francs at the concession stand. One bottle of water and bag of nuts later…resume Russell.
On a totally unrelated note, you may or may not know that I’ve been on a six year long search for my look alike celebrity. (I know, I need to get a hobby) And guess where I found her? Emily, my long-suffering friends and I thank you.
