A Change of Scenery

As some that have read my blog have noticed I have changed the scenery here. I am a true Gemini as I have to change my surroundings in some way or another. I can be set in my ways and do like things not to change in a lot of areas, usually areas I have no control of but here, on this blog I DO HAVE CONTROL. So I have again changed my page. I just didn't like the old template and this one is simple but I love the colors I have chosen. Let me know what you think.

I know in my last post I said I was not going to venture out of the house, I lied. The Hubby called from the office (yes he works on weekends) and wanted to go to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I found a time and so we went. The movie was for 3:25 but of course he had to make a pit stop first. We needed a new battery for the UPS system at the office for our security cameras and the place closed at 6. He came home to pick me up for the movie and the errand at 2:53 p.m. See the problem arising. I knew it. Well, we flew out to 51st & Memorial to Interstate Battery and finally left there at 3:13 for a 3:25 movie on the day after Christmas to 41st & Yale. Yeah, well we got into a bursting full parking lot at 3:24, found a parking space and then got into a massive line, in the cold to get tickets. I looked at the screen and the 3:25 start time flashed SOLD OUT. The next movie was 4:25 so we opted to go ahead and get tickets for the next one and wait. We went inside and bought popcorn and drinks and I saw that there was already a line for the movie. He was amazed. (He doesn't go to the movies much.) While in the food line the line dispersed into the theatre and we soon followed. We got good seats and sat to eat popcorn and watch the scroll ads over and over again. The Hubby decided to get up and take his jacket off but caught the lid of his Coke and pulled it right out of the chair cubby and onto the floor. #$^^#(***&##^&# Oops...Nearly the whole drink spilled on the floor. Oh well, $20 down the drain, literally. The movie finally started and we settled back. I'm not sure I like the movie. It was interesting and the special effects on yummy Brad were pretty cool, but the movie was very long. I thought they could have shortened it somewhat. Really, I don't think I would even watch it again on the TV, except to see yummy Brad again in his young stage.

The movie ended at about 7:30 so of course I was hungry. We went to Rick's American Cafe that has moved to 31st & Harvard, close to home. Nice to have a really nice restaurant close to home. I had a seafood pasta thing with mussels, shrimp, crab and scallops. I had mussels in New York the first time in October on our trip and boy still delicious. The Hubby had a huge steak, Cajun rubbed. We were stuffed. It was a nice date night with The Hubby.

I am a Virgo, but maybe I am a Gemini in disguise, because I love to make changes to my blog, although I like some things in my life to always stay unchangeable and predictable.But I do love to mess with my blog and now you've given me the incentive. it will be hard to do nothing. Hanging around with you may not be such a good idea :)

I like your changes. I change mine around a little bit also but so far have not left the confines of the standard templates that blogspot offers. I like the wide format of yours. Also good choice of colors.

This is an interesting change and you're making me itch to do something to mine also...

Hmmmm...

I think I'll take a pass on Benjamin Buttons.

Happy New Year, Jill!
