Celebrating --

Well, today is our anniversary, so I sort of took the day off. I lounged around most of the day enjoying the warm sunshine. Then, when The Big Guy came home we went out to celebrate. We don't usually make a huge thing of it - just sort of have a quiet "date."

We went to see the new Star Trek movie and it is fantastic!! They did such a terrific job of casting the young Kirk, Spock, Scotty, McCoy, Sulu, Uhura and Checkov. Yes, Leonard Nimoy is there, too, in a surprising role. You can honestly picture them growing into the characters we knew so well. The special effects are awesome! If you can possibly see it in the theater, you should. While it will still look good at home on the TV set, it is really impressive on the big screen. We actually sprang for the extra couple of bucks and saw it on the IMAX screen.

The evening was completed by a stop at our favorite micro-brewery (which just happens to be right across from the theater) where we had a couple of brews and a few appetizers for dinner. (They've got a nacho platter with chili that could count as a full meal!)

I think I'm just going to keep the mood flowing and call it a night.

See y'all tomorrow!!!

happy anniversary!
(as for the vodka sauce question, we use 8-12 ounces of pasta, usually penne of fettucine!)
