(the hairband is out now--by the way)
It was a nice weekend. The operas closed on Saturday night, and it was a successful season, with good shows and great ticket sales. It's always nice when it works out that way. Friday Eric and I took a break from the opera business and went out to dinner and to a movie. We ate Chinese Food (I had Kung Pao Tofu, Eric had Kansaw (sp?) Shrimp. We shared entrees, and the Tofu was gone long before the Shrimp. Who would have thought?) and saw the Fantastic Four Movie at the cheap (used-to-be-called-dollar) theatre. I liked it just fine, and Eric liked it even better than fine. So, it was a great evening.
Saturday we ran some errands and went shopping. We were in the neighborhood of our local Deseret Book, and so we went in to look there. When we left, we were each in possession of a little present. I had a copy of "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyer*, and Eric had the audio CDs for "1776" by David McCullough. Yippee! What a treat! Best of all, we didn't have to pay a dime, because we used the gift card that the Packers gave us for our wedding. (I know you're reading this--so THANKS!)
And that's pretty much the state of things at the moment.
*Eric had told me about this book over two months ago. He had been eavesdropping on a conversation he heard in Borders about it, and decided that it sounded like something that would be interesting to me. When he told me that it featured some kind of vampire element, I wasn't all that gung-ho. But, I just keep running into favorable reviews, so I finally decided to read it. I read the first three pages Saturday night, just to get a taste, and I have to say that the story is pretty engaging- right from the start.
