A Dweam Within a Dweam...

Yesterday was my seventh anniversary. I suppose it was DJ's anniversary, too. We celebrated by going to the big city and gawking at all of the weirdos. In addition to gawking we ate at a restaurant where our server was an enormous fellow with a goatee whose eyes were hidden beneath his bangs. I only understood every third word that he said. He may have been the Dread Pirate Roberts.

I was craving meat and not feeling very ladylike so I ordered a big steak and ate it in two bites. (I'm in the middle of formulating a new conspiracy theory, by the way. Is it mysterious to anyone else that when you request A-1 sauce in a restaurant, the bottle always has precisely one tablespoon of sauce left in it? Mysterious. Or not.)

Anyway.

DJ ate a slab of ribs and shared some with me because he's a nice guy and I threatened him like, "GIVE ME YOUR RIBS, TINY!" (Was it wrong of me to demand a rib from my husband? I have to menstruate, he can share his ribs. Adam shared his. And can I say "menstruate" on a family blog?)

After the carnage we strolled hand in hand down Broadway, which is like the Vegas strip but with a trashy honky tonk theme. It was there that I met Elvis. I refused to kiss him on the cheek because there was still lipstick there from the last dorky tourist and I didn't want to get mono from Fake Elvis On Wheels. And then DJ kicked Fake Elvis in the nards. (Can you say the word "nards" on a family blog? I think I just did.)
And then we saw Inception which was very good and appropriate because, as we all know, marriage is a "dweam within a dweam" and nothing says "Romantic Anniversary Date" like Leonardo DiCaprio re-killing his dead wife.

Oh my goodness you make me laugh Elise. Glad you had a good romantic evening with DJ, Elvis and Leo!

Thanks for the laugh. Um yes the dead wife thing is a spoiler 8-) but go see the movie anyway.

Happy Anniversary! I sure hope Jeff would kick Elvis in the nards (look I said it too) If he was kissing me...or I was kissing him?

I can't believe I spoiled it. SPOILER ALERT! But go see it anyway, Tawny. It will knock your SOCKS off. Unless you're not wearing socks, then it will knock your flip flops off. May be best to remove your footwear at the beginning of the movie. Of course then you risk getting a foot disease from theater floor. Maybe you better just wear your least favorite socks and risk it. It's your call but GO SEE INCEPTION.

I'm done now. And my word verification is "haters." That's just messed up.

words like "menstruate" should be used whenever possible, because it makes the opposite sex so darn uncomfortable, and that is worth any cost!!!
cool, i've been married longer then you. happy 7th year! (8th? hm...)
