Party on!

Jim and I are actually going to a MOVIE tonight. Last time we saw something in the theatre, I think, was Little Miss Sunshine (if you were only going to see one movie in the theatre in 2006, this one was a pretty damn good choice).Tonight it's the latest Harry Potter flick. I'm excited to see it as I (heart) Harry Potter, but Jim is kind of indifferent. But it's actually a work event for him. His company rocks in that they have some really fun extra cirricular activities. Their picnic was a blast, we've gone bowling, Christmas parties, Jim's done a baseball game and a few other things, too. So tonight it's movie night. The company is paying for tickets and everyone gets popcorn and drinks. Can you say free date? Jim's sister is babysitting (for free!), and bringing the pooch she's dogsitting for, so Natalie is going to have a blast playing with her Auntie Anne (or her "Anne-chovie" as Anne's best friend is trying to get Natalie to call her) and Spark, the former blue ribbon winning Westhighland Terrier show dog. I'm excited because all the rogue cheerios under the couch and in the kitchen and such are going to be gone after having a terrier in the house. Wondering if this means I can go another week without vacuuming...

Hey! Hope you had a great night out at the movies. And I fully understand your excitement at the idea of a free date. You are lucky to land the babysitting for free - that one is always the difficult bit, and when you have to pay an hourly rate it makes an evening out very expensive, doesn't it? We went to the theatre at the weekend to see The Spooky Men's Chorale. They are a bunch of ozzies who sing folk music acappella. They have a load of beautiful Georgian folk songs (that's Georgia the place, not Georgian the historical period... confused the heck out of us!), and some really funny send ups too.
