Today is Rob's and my five-year wedding anniversary. It seems like it hasn't been that long. We were wondering which traditional anniversary it was (e.g., silver anniversary, etc.), and after doing a little research I found that this is our "wood anniversary." I told Rob this. He said, "I'll give you some wood."
I'm actually being rather productive today. I wrote a lengthy book review for the YA book review blog. I'm doing crazy amounts of laundry. I plan to finish a brochure I'm designing that has my Writing and Editing services on one side and my Art and Design services on the other, so I can make them available at a boring work-related luncheon I have to go to on Thursday (I designed the invitations, reminder cards, programs, etc. for the event). And we're going out to a new Japanese fusion restaurant in downtown Modesto, which ought to be interesting.
We've also managed to watch two DVDs this weekend, which is a lot for us. Friday night we watched Reign of Fire with Matthew McConaughey and Christian Bale, great actors in a not-so-great but definitely entertaining flick. Last night we watched Bride and Prejudice, a recent movie by the director of Bend It Like Beckham. It was...fun, and interesting--a Bollywood musical, but in English, that's a sort of Indian version of Pride and Prejudice. Really. It stars the incredibly drop-dead gorgeous Aishwarya Rai.
Another significant event this weekend is that we've now entered the Tivo age. Despite the fact that I really don't need to watch any more TV than I already do, I can now watch anything I want anytime I want. I have mixed feelings about this, although there is no denying that it's always cool to have a fun new gadget, especially one that makes cool bleepy noises.
