On Friday, Dayv and I had our 11th date night this year. I had been looking forward to it the entire week, and left work asap to get the evening started. First, we went to our usual restaurant, Blue Sage, for dinner. The menu changed extensively since the last time we had been there, and several options that I usually order are no longer available. So, I was forced to mix it up and try something new! I ordered the Chiles Con Pepitas which are empanadas filled with roasted red pepper and pepita pesto, served with toybox tomato and avocado relish, and pickled white lima beans. It was delicious. I savored every bite, wishing the serving was more generous, and was sad when it was gone. Dayv got his usual Carnival Squash, which is luckily still on the menu.
After dinner, Dayv and I went to the movies and saw Gone Girl. Neither of us knew anything about the movie, except that David Fincher directed it, and we're both big fans of his work. The storyline was extremely interesting and bizarre. I could not anticipate any of the turns that the plot took, and the end left me feeling mystified. I can totally understand why people that have read the book would not be interested in seeing the movie, and vice versa. The story is so intricate and suspenseful, and once you know what is going to happen, all of the excitement dissipates. I really enjoyed it, as did Dayv. When the movie ended, he immediately turned to me and said, "I can't believe they made a movie about us! That's plagiarism! We should sue." I burst out laughing and we kept the gag going for the rest of the way home.
