Unconventional

It's been busy around here. Good busy. I think. The weekend was fun and refreshing. Dare I say *normal?* Steve and I had a date on Saturday night. And because we have sophisticated pallets, we headed to Red Lobster for lobster fest. It's been so long since we've been out on a Saturday night, I guess we misjudged the popularity of the 6 pm dinner hour here in Ohio. It was an HOUR wait for lobster fest. To which we said, no thank you. We headed over to Brio. I got excited by the prospect. But alas, a 45 minute wait. (Although while getting the scoop I spotted two of our best friends eating there so I texted and said hi.) We headed over to a fancy seafood restaurant and had a classy and fabulous meal. Our friends texted back and we ended up meeting them for dessert.

We were going to go to Cold Stone for ice cream, but there must have been 50 people in line. And it was 35 degrees. And raining cats and dogs. And it just didn't seem worth it to stand in line for ice cream. Several other restaurants were packed out. So... we headed to the movie theatre for dessert. Its one of those fancy deluxe theaters with a Ben & Jerry's in the lobby. We got ice cream and sat in the lounge and talked. A little odd, but very fun.

We sat in a circle of comfy chairs. About 15 minutes into our chat, this random guy, in his upper forties/early fifties plopped smack dab in the middle of our group. He just sat there. Then he leaned his head back and relaxed. And then, he fell asleep. And THEN he started snoring. And we belly laughed. He slept and snored for about a half hour. And then he woke up, got up and just left.

Weird. But I guess that's what you get when you hang out at the movies.

wee-eird. reminds me of the time my parents went to a movie and arrived early so they decided to nap in the car. One of my friends walked by and recognized them snoozing away! I was in high school, it was a *smidge* embarrassing!

The same thing happened to me!...except I was riding a train across Ireland and the man dozed off IN MY LAP. So, what seemed like primo seating (window seat while traveling across beautiful Ireland? Score!) was what prevented me and my cozy lap from escaping the snuggling Irishman. My friends caught a snapshot of the incident and its posted on FB...soo if you are looking for a chuckle, or another bout of belly laughs, feel free to take a gander at my profile pictures.

We were waiting on those couches the weekend the last Twilight movie came out. There were teenagers and ladies of all ages surrounding us with giddiness. There's some good people watching in the movie theaters, who knew!
