Anniversary Weekend (with Recommendations)

Bay-To-Breakers weekend is our wedding anniversary weekend.  Our kids are a little too young to join us in the race, so we didn't do it.  (But we think that that would be an awesome way to celebrate.)  Instead, we had a relatively low-key weekend, but one that we both thoroughly enjoyed.  Some highlights:

  • Nothing But the Truth :  Lillian rented this on a whim.  When I found out, I was a little resentful because it was a standard definition DVD, but it had Kate Beckinsale in it, so I gave it a chance.  I was pleasantly surprised, it kept me engaged.  We both liked it.  I recommend it.
  • The Dead and the Dying : I just finished the third Criminal trade by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.  It stands up to the first two.  I'm looking forward to Bad Night.  Highly recommended.
  • Wicked : We went to Wicked for our Anniversary date.  We were pleasantly surprised to see that Patty Duke and David Garrison (the neighbor on "Married with Children") were in the cast.  We didn't really know anything about the play before we saw it, and were better off for it.  It had some really cute numbers that we'll be referencing for a month.  (Sort of like Avenue Q, that way.)
  • Roy's : San Francisco's "Roy's" rocks.  We're increasingly choosing to go here for special grown-ups-only dinners.  We really love it, and always gravitate to their Prix Fixe menus.  Yum.  I'm full now, but want to go back already.
I didn't get any domestic chores done that I'd wanted to this weekend, but I guess I'll give myself a "pass" for Anniversary Weekend. :)

    Good to see you checking in at LJ again, too. No, I'm not online anywhere like we used to be at LJ and Plurk. I really liked having a place where we could share our thoughts in a long-form post that…

    Good to "see" you checking in at LJ... and taking steps to preserve your LJ and Google+ histories!

    I "Searched" some of your archive looking for the fluorescent bulb post, but couldn't find it through 2009-02-06, and before that, LiveJournal no longer offers pages of your feed, just daily access,…

    Ha ha! How coincidental, I was thinking about light bulbs yesterday myself. One of my Instagram contacts mentioned that the EU regulates the types of light bulbs people can use in their homes in…
