One great thing that came with watching the Footes was the use of a car. We have been a one car family for many months now, and at times it kinda cramps my style. I haven't been going absolutely bonkers or anything, but it was nice to have a car. And the van was much easier to drive than I would have thought.
Another great thing was having built-in babysitters. Dan and I went on an actual date. Outside of the house. It has been a while. We went to see The King's Speech which was an amazing movie. I absolutely loved it. Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter were both fantastic. It might be the most impressive performance I have ever seen either of them give.
And the theater that we went to was AWESOME. An old building... heavy on the neon and the life-size figures of movie characters, both 2D and 3D. I don't even know where they would find 3D figures of Klingons and Spiderman and Jack Sparrow. But they've got 'em. All squished in to one little area.
See that chandelier? This place is super classy.
P.S. The movie cost six dollars. Total. Cheapest date ever. And we could hear the projector as the movie ran. It was awesome. I guess we appreciate old-school ghetto-type stuff.
