Our date

David and I had our big date on Saturday night...dinner AND a movie! Amazing. We saw Hangover II. I was not impressed. I mean, I saw the first movie and I thought it was hilarious. It was pretty crude, that's true. But this one went beyond crude. It was raunchy with a capital R. I'm not going to say I didn't laugh, because there were lots of funny parts, but seeing full-frontal nudity of this guy in the Hard Rock shirt was not what I'd bargained for.

Now, if it had been the guy to his left....I would have still been disgusted! Gotcha, David:)

Plus, everything seemed so similar to the first one, and it felt a little contrived. Okay, more than a little.

Anyway, dinner was unbelievable. We must have had 8-9 courses; I ate and drank things that I never had before. David's brother Phillip put the menu together for us. Every time the waiters brought out something new, they would not only take away the plates we'd used, but also all our silverware, even if we hadn't used it.

When David went to the restroom and left his napkin on the table, I thought our waiter was going to break his neck getting over to me. He quickly re-folded the napkin in the "proper" way and then left. It was hilarious.

I think the strangest thing I ate was a quail's leg. Yep. In my defense, I thought the waiter said "quail's EGG", but alas, I had already eaten it by that time. And it was good. But I kept thinking about the two adorable ceramic quails my mom had on an end table when we were growing up. But I had to forge ahead, since there were more courses to come.

I could probably write pages about that dinner, but I won't. One of the best parts, though, was when they brought out truffles and fortune cookies, and they had "Happy Anniversary" inside. I always like fortune cookies, but these literally melted in your mouth. Dee-lite-ful.

And my mom had the pleasure (her words) of staying with Audrey, who was apparently an angel for her. I guess I'm the only one getting temper tantrums? Great. I'm so honored.
