Friday, November 2nd, 2007 • 3 Comments on An Exciting Night (Is Not What It Used To Be)
An exciting Friday night for me:
Frantic, last minute, one-end-of-the-mall-to-the-other suit shopping (oh yes, I live for suit shopping) followed by a crazy trip to a popular chain hair salon (for him, not me) where a hair stylist-mommy completed a man’s haircut in record time while chasing after her toddler. Said stylist also seems to think iced tea is a perfectly acceptable beverage for said toddler (who had been playing in the sink upon our arrival).
A semi-relaxing dinner of cheap Italian capped off with tasty chocolate gelato. (Payback for enduring the above two-hour experience which felt much, much longer.)
Coming home to find my fabulous Winterberry Snowflake Flannel Sheets waiting for me on my porch.
Also finding a check in the mailbox from my favorite editor.
Back-to-back showings of Sahara. I do not know why I love this movie so much. It could be the high adventure plot (I’m a sucker for high adventure), the terrific classic rock soundtrack combined with African tribal music, or Matthew McConaughey’s hunky, tanned muscles. Maybe all three. I don’t generally like him in movies and in real life he just seems flaky as hell, but in Sahara… yum. Plus, Steve Zahn is just adorable. I can take or leave Penelope Cruz.
The promise of sleep. (Even if it has to be Nyquil induced.)
Friday nights are wild around here, I tell you.
