earthquakeLOL.. get your attention?  Thought it might.  :)

Quickie movie review… went to see San Andreas with RGG the other night.  Let’s just say, I’m never moving to California!  I didn’t think I’d like the movie at first, but it turned out to be pretty good.  A little cliche, but not bad.  The seismologist/professor reminded me a little bit of Richard Dreyfus’ character in Close Encounters of the Third Kind… no one listened to him until it was almost too late.  But in the end he’s the big hero.  There’s a little bit of romance (gotta love a guy with an English accent, right?), some great adventures, and really great visual effects.  There were quite a few times when I actually ducked in my seat because I was afraid something was going to get me.   😯

The best part of the movie though, as always, was the company.  RGG is REALLY fun to go to the movies with.  First of all, he’s almost (but not quite) Sheldon-esque when he picks his seat. I guess it’s really more like Goldilocks… finding the seat that’s just right.  But it’s cute, and I have to admit I haven’t had a bad seat since we’ve been going out.  :)  RGG isn’t one to “shush” you during the movie either.  He doesn’t mind a little whispering now and again.  A some giggling too.  But don’t be obnoxious or he’ll tell you what’s what!  AND get compliments on it from other movie-goers afterwards.  True story!  Gotta like a guy who stands up and does that.

So I think this was movie #3 for us, #5 if you count the two we watched together, but apart.  He’s definitely a fun guy to watch movies with.. and tonight he said the same about me…can you see me smiling?   :-)

Hopefully many more movies to come.


Oh what a night!

Have you ever had one of those nights that you wish would never end?  It hasn’t happened to me in a while, but it did this past weekend.   :-)

So I met RGG (oh, that’s what I’m calling him… really great guy from the last two posts…) at Newport on the Levee where our plan was dinner and a movie.  Well.. he just happened to suggest that we meet in front of my favorite store there, Barnes & Noble, so of course we went in, and spent almost an hour perusing the music and movie sections.  Now RGG knows music.  I mean REALLY knows music.  I thought I knew about music.. but I’ve found out that I have a LOT to learn.   I learned a lot Saturday night.  : )  And the movies…well, I have a lot of catching up to do.  I think we found a bunch of movies that will need to be on our “must see together” list though.  :)

Next up was a short walk over to Arnies, where I had a cheeseburger that I THINK I enjoyed.. but I really can’t remember because the conversation was so good that I didn’t pay much attention to it.  :)  It’s always amazing when you find someone that you can talk to for hours and not run out of things to talk about!

Some of the conversation centered around our server who had some umm… interesting tattoos, especially the one creeping up her inner calf near her thigh.   Now THAT sparked a very interesting conversation.. or sort of conversation because we were laughing too hard.



Next up was a movie… Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.  Awesome movie!  I won’t say much about it here because I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t seen it.  But.. OMG SHOES!  I want them!  Don’t know where I’d wear them, but I want them… lol.  And really?  Can someone REALLY hold their breath that long?

Seeing a movie with RGG is really a treat though.  I’m surprised we don’t get kicked out for talking too much lol.  This is the 4th movie we’ve watched together… 2nd one in person.  I know.. doesn’t make sense, does it?   Think “When Harry Met Sally…”  Channel please?  :)

Oh, and that was the second quote that night from When Harry Met Sally… go figure.  Next we’ll be quoting The Breakfast Club, just watch!


Beer was the next item on the agenda, so the last stop of the night was at the Hofbrauhaus for a beer.  Yes, just one.  Because WOW what a beer!



I really didn’t want the night to end, but when we looked at the clock and realized it was 1:30 am, we decided that it was time to call it.  This was said as we were both stifling yawns I think.  Geez it sucks getting old, doesn’t it?  :)

All in all, a very awesome date, and already looking forward to the next one.  :)


P.S. I just realized how many smileys I used in this post… sorry… Guess it’s because I was smiling so much that night… lol.
