Which sounds like an awful lot for anyone to handle, but Tara did it well 🙂
She wanted to do this to show me how much she loves me. I know she does, and I love her so much, but today was just her special way to show it to me.
The day started with almost breakfast in bed, but breakfast at the table with peanut butter pancakes (awesome!) and fresh fruit was a great way to start the day. She also gave me a little gift that would have been for my birthday, a Star Wars Mighty Mugg. I really wanted to get more of these at Anime North, but no one was selling them at a reasonable price(about $10 MORE than at a normal store). And this brings up the collection to 4.
Then she massaged my tired old body all over, and I returned the favor. This is something Tara and I like to do a lot, it helps with any stress and just makes us feel good. We even went a got ourselves a nice massage table.
Then a nap, because a good day is a day that includes a nap.
Our next activity was to have some lunch at Moxies so that I could get myself a Vindaloo. I don’t make great Indian food, so to have it properly prepaird and tasty is great. And Moxies does a really good job on this dish, and I think it’s the only thing I get from there 🙂
A movie was in order after lunch, and we went to see Up. Hands down one of the top three Pixar movies. But it did make us cry during the first 10 minutes. Tara elbows me and says, with a hint of sarcasm, “Great movie selection Bill!”. I think you had to be there.
And if it wasn’t for the wild child who insisted on dancing and carrying on at the front of the theater, it would have been perfect.
I know that kids are hard to control sometimes, but people don’t seem to be respectful of all the other people that had to pay the same amount. The mother was initially trying to calm her down a little, but seems to have given up at one point and just let her carry on. Not the way I would have done it, but then again, I don’t have kids.
Most of the rest of the day was spent playing one game or another. I had rented Army of Two, and while fun, also kinda frustrating and too much like Gears of War. If it was cheap I might pick it up, but it would have to be real cheap. Then I started on Mass Effect and I’m trying to get past the point I got playing it on the PC. Not that it was too far, and the console controls are no better/worse than the PC controls. Just a little different. And I have to get used to no mice when I aim. That’s gonna take time.
Tara made some amazing chili today, which is mostly funny because she doesn’t like chili. She made it just for me 🙂
After a little playing with the animals, I think it’s finally time to call it a day.
It was certainly an amazing day and one that I will owe her for some time 🙂
