So that happened

(Ryan Posting)

And vvvvrrrrroooOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM...another year of marriage is overtaken on the highway of life. That's 2 years for those of you keeping score at home. It was a pretty good year if I recall correctly. Along with bringing us closer together in our relationship, it also brought with it 3 new jobs (2 for Katie, only 1 for me) and a shiny new (70 year old) home.

We marked the occasion with an enjoyable evening of dining and theater. The cuisine came courtesy of an interesting little place called The Haunted House Restaurant. The general idea of the curators of this fine establishment was a simple, 3 step plan:

1. Put a restaurant in a crime scene
2. ???
3. Profit!

















Basically it's a mansion at the end of a long gravel road off of I-44 where 3 people were killed in the 60's that is now a eating establishment. It was different, it was fun, and the food...well, let's just say you're paying for the atmosphere. Then we went and saw a movie film called Fracture staring a kid name Ryan Gosling (star of The Notebook, which my wife has so graciously spared me from thus far) playing a lawyer and Anthony Hopkins starring as, you guessed it, a brilliant psychopath (hey, do one thing, do it well). The movie we went to see was actually not playing anymore, and we were talked into seeing this one by a rather peppy guy behind us in line, so I wasn't expecting much. However, it turned out to be an enjoyable picture, so if you're reading this, guy who was behind us in line (and really, i hope you aren't, since that would be creepy), thanks.

That's the summary of how it went down, and that's about all I have to say. Sorry to all those who are apparently missing my posts, but I don't share my wife's gift of bloggery. It really does take some skill to post interesting, coherent messages every other day like she does, and she does it so well too. So props to her for that, and also for putting up with me for another year.

Transmission End.

You guys had an interesting weekend. Congrats on enjoying another year!! I'm glad Fracture was a good movie since I took the kids to watch Shrek and was very disappointed. It wasn't as funny to me as the prior two, oh well. Have a good day you two! -April
