Nixon's Memoirs: 3rd Anniversary in review

3rd Anniversary in review

The day started off with the wife and I cooking breakfast together. We made waffles and turkey sausage, and watched The Price is Right together. (Yeah, we slept in!)

Then, it was the one "errand" of the day, which was to get the wife's car an oil change. She drives a 1983 Diesel car and most places charge a pretty penny to do the work, but SEARS did for about half what everyone else was charging.

After dropping off her car, we went to BUILD-A-BEAR in Park Plaza mall. We made our own stuffed bunny, and dressed him in blue shorts and a shirt that said "Happy Annibearsary" on it. His birth certificate reads "Bob T. Bunny", and he sleeps with us now.

The Bunny stuffing ran us a little late, so we decided to see the 2:25 showing of White Chicks. This gave us some time to people watch, and catch the delightful experience of seeing two redneck kids try to play Dance Dance Revolution. It was brutal.

We had the theatre almost to ourselves when a gaggle of obnoxiously loud tweens walked in and decided to populate the entire row behind us. Armed with annoying laughs, cell phones, and unchecked by adult supervision, we decided to move to the back. Am I the ONLY person who tries to avoid sitting next/in front/behind someone in a uncrowded theatre? Because everyone seems to enjoy doing the opposite. A guy actually came all the way up to sit in the row behind us, and two more teeny-boppers plopped in front of us, when there were PLENTY of seats elsewhere. Luckily, they ended up not being too loud.

The movie was pretty funny, but I could have done without the bathroom humour (quite literally).

We picked up her car, then came home and rested a short while, giving me time to receive a call from my mom. Then, it was off to eat.

GAUCHO'S is a fairly new place in Little Rock that serves tradtional Brazillian/Argentinian Churrascaria. Which is essentially a bunch of folks walking around with all kinds of high quality meat skewered on swords, along with grilled pineapple. They also gave generous helpings of rice, mashed potatoes, black beans, greens, pesto, salsa, and caramelized bananas. It was a tad on the expensive side ($21.95 per person) But it was delicious!

After sloshing out to the car, we stopped by Blockbuster and rented the original Shrek. We changed into our pajamas, and watched that, followed by our wedding video.

Everything after that is CLASSIFIED. :)

Sounds like a great anniversary!!

On the theater thing, my thought is that people come into a nearly-empty theater, see people sitting in there, and assume that MUST be the best possible place to sit to see best, so they get as near as possible to 'em. Just a thought.

Sounds like a good date to me. I like your idea of the anniversary bear. Concerning the theater, your not alone, I too try to find a seemingly quite place. But that sounds like a good time to me. Some quality time between, can't be beat. Congrads on your 3rd year.

Congrats on your anniversary! We just celebrated our 2nd one in April. I go out of my way at the theater to NOT sit in front of someone. But, it seems I always get the loud people around me. Thats the main reason I don't go to the movies anymore.

Hi, I was clicking on some of my interests thinking of linking to others who listed "libertarian party".

Then when I decided to read about your anniverasary I found we used the same boring blog template, and better yet within 24 hours posted "anniversary memoirs"
