To boldly go

Had a break from all things emigratory yesterday. It was my birthday. So I went to the cinema with Fraz to see Star Trek.
Gus was working and it is so not his thing. Fraz and I had a great time - treated ourselves to some Hagen Daz ice cream. The lady at the counter said we could taste any flavours we were unsure of before purchase. We toyed with the idea of tasting them all, but chickened out. So we went for a regular 2 scoop. £3.10! Fraz had cookie dough and caramel chew chew; I went for vanilla toffee crunch and cherry garcia. Extravagant but delicious.

The cinema was very quiet - when we sat down there was only one other person in there. A few others arrived - and took the rows in front of us and behind us. Why? When there is a whole cinema to pick from? And dear god - the couple in the row behind starting snacking on what sounded like a roll of loft insulation. It went on for ever. No wonder they needed the extra large premier seats.

The movie itself was brilliant - one of the best films I have seen in ages. Exciting, funny, sexy.

Just like me.

  1. Glad you had a wonderful birthday, Ian. Your stellar cinema experience mirrors those we have in Miami, which is why we don't go any more... we have DVR service (similar to TiVo) and if one of us munches too loudly, we can always back up the movie and repeat the part we missed... Love, Jill
