Date Night, Movie Night

The boy decided he wanted to go see "The Illusionist" with Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti. It was a beautiful evening so I really wanted to go for a walk and just chill, but he was adamant about the movie, sometimes a compromise is worth it. It was a really good movie and we had a nice time. We both are popcorn lovers and decided that would suit us just perfectly for dinner, and it did.

It is interesting watching a relationship grow and change. It is nice to see how comfortable we have become with one another and I really like it. Not comfortable in a bad way, just comfortable in that we are learning and getting to know one another better. He stopped to put gas in his car on the way home. He knows how much I hate the smell of gas and having to pump my own gas, so he was considerate enough to ask if I wanted him to drop me back at my car first and if I needed gas and he would take my truck to fill it up. Sometimes it is just the little things. I said no of course, but it was nice that he asked. He picked up a gallon of milk, and when we got back to his house I took it in and put it away, but I know that he likes the less full one in front and such so I put it away the way that I know he would have wanted it. Weird things, but all good. I do really enjoy him.

I decided for his birthday that I would do kind of a combo gift. He is closing on his house on his birthday, then his parents are taking him out to celebrate. I may or may not be invited but either way on his birthday I will give him the DVD of the first movie that we saw together which was "Silent Hill" , which was terrible and we both hated it. I thought it would be funny and something that he would always remember, I tease him about how he can really pick the good movies.

Then the next night, I am going to take him to dinner, I have not decided where yet, I am still thinking on that one. But I have decided even though he is not going to have his patio poured now until the Spring that I would get him his outdoor fireplace that he wants. That way when he does have it poured, he will have it. I will probably get him a shirt and a pair of pants on my shopping trip this weekend as well, but at least I have this nailed down now.

I saw some interesting things on my walk back to princess parking after work yesterday. The first was a girl on the corner in front of Marshall Fields (I cannot bring myself to call it Macy's yet, I am just getting over calling it Daytons), wearing a tan seersucker skirt. Fine, a little past Labor Day no biggie. But then I was walking through the skyway and there was this woman sitting on a folding chair in the middle of the Hennipen Ave skyway to Block E, watching out for rebel rousers from the American Idol auditions, and she was wearing a HOT pink polyester pant suit. It was just a little too much for me and I LOVE pink. Oh well, to each their own, as long as they are comfortable right?
