Oooh, two posts in one night!

I noticed that with Doug being here this past weekend, I got a little behind on the blogging, so thought I’d get caught up with an extra post tonight. :)

But he came up in the afternoon, in enough time for us to watch Nuno and Kim’s DVD of their shoot at the Foxboro, MA U2 360 concert that Doug and I had gone to back in September. They were two rows back from the stage, smack dab in front of Bono, so their forward facing view was MUCH better than where we were from the inner circle along side of the stage. We definitely had the advantage for some of the walkway moments, though, like when Bono walked right over my head during Beautiful Day, and during The Unforgettable Fire, when he was THISCLOSE to Doug and me. But I LOVED their shoot, saw so much of what we missed from where we were, and they got the WHOLE show vs the one hour I shot that night. Pretty amazing stuff. Thank you again for sharing it, N & K!

Then it was off to the hockey game. Carolina vs Phoenix. Reminded me of Jason Mitchener, a Third Day boardie mod from Arizona who passed away late last year. He would have been so proud of the way the Coyotes kicked the Canes collective butts Saturday night. Yes, the Canes lost 4 to ZIP! Had to have been one of the worst hockey games I’ve seen in a while, one of those kinds that you just watch the clock and will it to be over. But D and I had fun anyway.

Next day it was sleep late (made even later by the time change), read the paper, watch a bunch of Craig Ferguson clips from YouTube and the CBS website,  then it was off to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory (which for the record looks NOTHING like what is represented on Big Bang Theory. It actually looks EXACTLY like the link to their website shows. Still wanted to ask if we could get Penny as our waitress while we were there, but figured they probably wouldn’t get the joke…)

They’ve got some GREAT food there. D and I split an order of the Factory Nachos, and I ended up splurging on the Wasabi Encrusted Ahi Tuna. Which was good, just wish I’d asked for it to be seared as little as possible, compared to what I used to get at Bahama Breeze before they took it off the menu, for “rare”, it was kind of overdone. Then we finished off with gooey chocolate desserts to take home. In the immortal words of the LOLCats: “Nom nom nom!” 😀 But man, between the appetizer, the desserts, and the fact that I got the Ahi Tuna, we burned through 2 $25 gift cards, and still ended up charging nearly that much on the Visa. :-O It was SO good though.

Anyhoo, came home, watched that new show Minute To Win It, then switched over to the Amazing Race, then D took off for home.

Good weekend, even if the Canes got shut out and I ended up eating WAY too much! Nom nom nom, INDEED! 😀
