Well, I'm home from my night out with the girls. What fun we had. Dinner was pretty good for some scary place on McKinley Ave. Janeen & Rene' made us (me) stick to our guns about not getting too much Chinese food like our first night in New York. They were right. Our meal for 2 fed all 4 of us with much leftovers.
We then went and saw What Happens in Vegas which has got to be one of the most hilarious movies ever! It was GREAT! Of course this is coming from me, the person whose favorite movies are Fools Rush In, 13 Going on 30, 50 First Dates, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Music & Lyrics, Sweet Home Alabama, Just Like Heaven, etc. Do we see a pattern here? Yep - You bet!!! It doesn't bother me one bit when a movie is typical and follows the same sort of pattern. Girl and Boy meet, one of the two does something stupid that jeopardizes the relationship, in the end the boy gets the girl or the girl gets her man. **On a side note. I love these movies and would probably choose my all time favorite from them but I also really, really like action adventure type movies like The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Ultimatum, the X-men Trilogy, The Italian Job, Live Free or Die Hard, Transformers, etc. (What am I missing?)** Anyway, I thought the movie tonight was just so incredibly funny! I can't believe how much I laughed. Even the previews before this movie were really funny! A new movie is coming out, with one of the guys from The Office, that has Teddy Geiger in it. He is an amazing singer/songwriter who I first saw on the show Love Monkey with Tom Cavanaugh. And there is a new movie coming out with Colin Hanks - for anyone that didn't know - he's Tom Hanks son! I also picked up 3 new lines, which excites me immensely! So from an extremely untrained and biased movie critic, I'd encourage everyone to go see this movie!
We also were able to go out for our dessert of Black Rice Pudding (or as the restaurant calls it - Sticky Ricke Pudding?) with Coconut Ice Cream. DELICIOUS!!!! I walked away wanting more, more, more and wondering why is it always so long in between servings?
So thank you Rene' for a WONDERFUL Mother's Day gift! What fun it was!!!!!
