Tuesday morning and I’m looking forward to my Friday date night. Last weekend we were in San Francisco visiting friends and the weekend before that my dad was in town – so it’s been a few weeks now since Sam and I have hit the town and painted it purple. And by hitting the town, I’m thinking dinner and a movie? A walk along the beach? Window shopping and a glass of wine? Sadly, my idea of a great time usually ends with me asleep by eleven.
I logged onto the computer this morning and did some searching around for what’s in the theaters (or coming to them by Friday). King’s Speech – saw it. Barney’s Version – saw it. No Strings Attached – saw it. Ah-hah…The Company Men. Now that looks good to me. Not particularly uplifting, but good all the same. And it seems as if there’s a new comedy coming out on Friday – Cedar Rapids, from the makers of The 40-Year Old Virgin. Reviews for both are good.
Or I could surprise Sam with rock climbing, a night out salsa dancing, and a helicopter ride over the city. We could go to a rave, hit a new restaurant, and end the night on a downtown rooftop. Mmm, it’s a tough call, but I think I’m going to go with The Company Men. It starts at 7:15pm and I could be in my pajamas by 10.
