For our third anniversary, Critter has booked a Secret Mystery Trip starting tomorrow. He didn’t tell me anything about it, though I pried some clues out of him (I won’t tell you how) and deduced that we’re going to Las Vegas. Not sure what hotel we’re staying at yet, but I’m working on it! Apparently we have front-row “wet zone” tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s “O” show as well as seats at Bette Midler’s new show. Wow! He sure knows how to pick ’em. We leave tomorrow night, so it should be quite a fun time! Pics will follow, naturally. 🙂
Tonight we had a fun evening eating good food and trashy drink. First we stopped at Target to pick up some cheap wine glasses, since all but two of ours are broken and the two left are completely different sizes and shapes. We also picked up two hideous, oversized plastic snifters for fun, as well as a ginormous bottle of Schmitt Sohne riesling (yes, the BIG one with the creepy little Bavarian midget on the label). We usually don’t stoop so low wine-wise, but hey…sometimes you just gotta. He then cooked a scrumptious dinner (General Tso’s Chicken, the homebrew version) and we sat on our asses sipping cheap wine in our plastic snifters and watching the latest episode of “Lost” followed by an old Season 3 episode of “Six Feet Under.” That bottle basically equaled a “normal” bottle for each of us. I’m no lightweight but that much wine gets me really tipsy, yet somehow I can still ty pe.
Good times, with more to follow… I’m a lucky, lucky man. 🙂
