You will remember that I have a lot of rocks around, and that they are my personal legos. Some of them pretty big. Like the huge slab of rock that was Trevor and Allison's across the street. They are rehabbing and a) the slab was buried in front of their place, it had been the old front step...nearly 4 feet wide! by 4 inches thick, its pretty brittle and b) they did some foundation stuff last year and I got a lot more of their rocks out of the ground then.
I built a fire pit a couple of years ago. Used it once. Weeds have been growing. I moved some of the choicest rocks INTO Penny's yard yesterday, you can see its popular. I imagine in warm weather laying out a couple of cocktails with the wife and...keeping the dog from drinking them.
In other news, Cornell here sometimes secretly announces a free movie at their cineama. Last year we were so excited, Natalie Wood in Miracle on 34th St! We got the announcement early this week, ELF! I had never seen it, and cheap dude that I am, I constructed a hawt date with the wife around the free movie. It was definately hilarious and entertaining, Zoey is tres awesome as singer and performer.
But first, we went to Ithaca's favorite restaurant, Just a Taste....the wife was like "what, you want to get there when they open, exactly at 5:30?" because she knows I am super nervous about time, but in this case, I am thinking "Ithaca's most popular restaurant on a Friday? 5:31 may be too late!" and it nearly was. We got there, just a couple of seats left, and after we took off our coats NO seats were left. The last spot was taken by Mary with her husband next to us, she is the sweet dental assistant who cleaned the wife's teeth yesterday, and I was like "you saw her last week, and I will be in your chair this week!". Small world, to be sitting elbow to elbow with your dental assistant, the very week you both see her. Super awesome restaurant. Their idea of a small taste though is NOT mine, it was all pretty huge, and we got the doggy bag....then off to the free flick.
You see, because next week is our 19th wedding anniversary :) We have a boatload of visitors expected, so this was probably our celebration indeed....

Wow congratulations! I love Zooey Deschanel too, have you seen "The New Girl?" HIlarious!
i haven't seen Elf... will have to put it in my netflix cue!
How did you move those huge rocks and slab? The table thingy turned out great though. Nice to make use of things in a different way.
I picked up the rocks and moved them :)
I have a real fondness for Elf...other favorite Christmas films A Christmas Story and The Lion in Winter.
Love Penny in her yard!
I love everything about this post: Elf, Penny, small towns, dinner out, free movies, hawt dates with the spouse, summer cocktails in the yard, repurposed rocks, and 19th wedding anniversaries! (Did I miss anything?)
PS: I miss my firepit. :(
Happy early anniversary to you both.
I can't believe that....it is my most favorite movie EVER!!
Did you love it??? I love it...it makes me all happy and I feel Christmassy when I think about it!!!
