W and I had a date night on Saturday. If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that we don’t have a lot of those.
W asked me out, which is always nice. I might be a butch, but I’m certainly not adverse to being asked out.
We went and saw this cute movie called “In a World …,” which is a small rom-com about the voice-over industry. It’s a smart, funny film. Lesbian comedienne Tig Notaro was in it. As was Cameron Diaz, who played the leader of a group of Amazon women who battle a tribe of angry cavemen in the film within the film. That’s the movie that I’d like to see next, ’cause Cameron Diaz and Amazons.
The movie was showing at our local art house theater and it was the first movie to be shown there in digital format. So, that was exciting.
After the movie, the theater was presenting a special showing of Rocky Horror, and we got to see everyone dressed up for that.
We ordered dinner from an Italian restaurant across the street and went to a bar and watched the end of the Penn State/Michigan game while we waited for our food. Penn State won in fourth overtime, which was exciting, especially because I’m a PSU alum.
We headed home with our dinner and ate Italian food in bed and watched a few episodes of season four of Modern Family.
There were some adult activities after that, but this is not that kind of lesbian blog.
Anyway, it was a pretty sedate evening, but it was really nice to have that alone time with W. One thing about having kids, it makes you appreciate when they’re not around, at least for an evening or so.
Here’s the thing: I like that after all of these years, we still enjoy each other’s company. We don’t need fancy or exciting or expensive. Just being together is enough — sharing popcorn and a movie, Cameron Diaz, a football game and decadent desserts in a take-out containers.
