And Now for Something Completely Different
For a change of pace, we actually went out twice this weekend. On Saturday night, we visited our friends Wendy and Harry, and their two daughters Bethany and Savannah. The boys loved it so much they didn't want to leave. There was a piano at their house, so it was often hard to make converation over the constant banging on the keyboard. We finally left when the boys kept fighting with each other for toys.
It's June, so that meant it was time for our quarterly date night on Sunday. For the movie of the quarter, we chose a movie called "Waitress". In a sign that my brain was not working this weekend, "Waitress" was not playing when we arrived at the movie theater in Emeryville. We headed down to the theater down the street for a better selection of movies and ended up choosing to see "Knocked Up" instead.
We were running a bit late, so at the ticket booth, as asked the woman at the counter, "Is it too late to get 'Knocked Up' right now?" I thought for a second about what had just said, and then started to crack up. Turns out that we made a good choice in "Knocked Up". Even though there were way too many references to drugs and profanity in the movie, both Jenny and I could relate to the underlying story about how having children completely changes people's lives around. I recommend "Knocked Up" highly. Afterwards, we had Indian food in Berkeley for the first time in ages as we concluded our quarterly respite from the kids.
