Just got back from date night with hubby--dinner and a movie (along with picking up some cat food and the obligatory new toy for our spoiled feline companions).

We saw the Muppet Movie. OMG, so good! It was sweet, funny, corny (in the best way), and full of music and cameos. All our favorites had a part including the Swedish Chef and Animal.

So. Much. Love.

Don't know what Frank Oz thought was objectionable about the script...I didn't see anything there except love and respect for the Muppets.

And Miss Piggy rocks!

Oh, and Kermit has a Rolls Royce! EEEEEEEEEE!

Not just for kids!

Now we're going to have some hot chocolate (it's down to 28 degrees already) then we'll be off to bed soon.

So, it's been ages since I updated, but there's not a lot going on these days...mostly just work, home, supper, tv, bed, sleep, alarm clock, get up, lather rinse repeat.

But yesterday, we had to go to work early for training, so we got out early. We decided to go to dinner then to the movies.

We saw Coraline based on the children's book by Neil Gaiman and created using stop-motion animation.

It is a fabulous, if a bit creepy, movie. I highly recommend it to any and everyone who enjoys movies. I would say that anyone over the age of about 6 will like it. Younger than that--it depends on the child.

In other news, I'm on Facebook and I am finding all sorts of people I went to high school with back in the day. It is so cool to hook up with these folks and learn what they've been up to for the last thirty plus years. If you are on there too, friend me...but please add a message telling me your nick, since I don't know most of your "real life" names...

Also, making super secret plans for hubby's birthday. Shhhh...

That's it for now. I told you...boring!

Date Night

Hubby and I had a fabulous date last night. He took me to see The Dark Knight. It was awesome. Full of action, drama, chills, thrills and a tiny laugh now and then to ease the tension. We want to see it again (heh, I'll believe that when my hubby drags his tail to a theatre again so soon).

After the movie we went out to dinner and spent a lovely hour talking about what we'd just seen. One thing hubby mentioned about playing Batman (as an actor) struck me as so true. He said when someone plays the Batman, he's really playing three characters. First is Batman the super hero. Second is Bruce Wayne, ethical businessman and philanthropist. Third is Bruce Wayne, the playboy/public face. And hubby feels that Christian Bale has done the best job of all playing all three.

I quite agree.

Heath Ledger as the Joker was brilliant. All the raves about his performance are valid, IMO. He plays the Joker with exactly the correct amount of crazy and cool. Complete chaos would be an apt description.

Also loved Gary Oldman as Gordon.

Guess that's it for now. :)
