Another great weekend with D.

(Test post to see exactly how this posts from WordPress to Facebook. If it looks weird on Facebook, my apologies in advance!)

Fun times this weekend.

Usually D and I don’t get together two weekends in a row, but between seeing La Cage Aux Folles and Dark Shadows in his neck of the woods last weekend, and with Men In Black 3, which we really wanted to see leaving IMAX on Thursday, he made the drive up here already so we could catch it on the big screen in 3D this weekend before it got the boot at the IMAX in favor of Rock of Ages next weekend.

So we grabbed a quick dinner at Boston Market yesterday and headed downtown to get the $5 PowerPass IMAX tickets I’d preordered Wednesday, found out when we got there that it was “Power Pass holders Appreciation Week” so unexpectedly found ourselves with medium popcorns for only a buck apiece, and prime seats for MIB3 (in addition to the great prices Power Passes get you, you also get first crack at the GA seating with a special spot at the head of the line. LOVE that, no more 2nd row seating like we had for Avatar! Ouch!)

Men In Black 3 was awesome. Great effects, they made very dizzying use of the 3D (particularly the falling sequences, almost tossed my popcorn – er – cookies) , and thought Josh Brolin did great portraying the younger Tommy Lee Jones as “K”.

And after doing so much go go go last weekend with the musical, the movie, and miniature golf, today we just chilled at home. Watched last night’s Graham Norton from BBCA (love that show, sometimes it depends on the guests, but usually it’s great fun to watch, really hilarious), the first two episodes of Fringe from Season 1, and The Big Year on DVD from Netflix. And somewhere in there, caught bits and piece of D’s Mets getting swept by his LEAST fave team, the Yankees. And my new U2.com membership perk came in this weekend as well, U22, the 2 CD set of 22 live tracks from the 360 tour. Came with a great photo book as well. Already ripped the CD’s to my PC, looks like I’ll be burning yet ANOTHER cd for the car very shortly. :)

Now time to get caught up on all the online stuff I missed while I was doing other things. Currently listening to the ancient but newly d/l’d from Amazon mp3 album Out of the Blue by ELO. Had it on double vinyl years ago, played it to death, great to have it back in the collection again. Takes me back a WHOLE lotta years, but funny how fast the songs come back to you after all this time, head bobbing and singing along to “Summer and Lightning” and “Mr. Blue Sky” as we speak.
