Yesterday afternoon Mo and I were sitting in the dark Liberty theater, listening to the repetitive music they play before the previews, holding hands and utterly bored.  The Liberty theater is small, as is befitting our tiny little town.  The screen is placed high on the wall and is probably half the size of what we are used to from back home.  We both agreed it would be pretty horrible to sit in the very front rows at this theater since the screen was so high up.  They also have no “before the feature” programming.  It’s just that small of a theater.  Not even a power point presentation like I’ve seen in other theaters.

As we sat there Mo turned his head and whispered, “Is this our first date since the honeymoon?”

I thought about that for a minute. “Do you count going to Quiznos when we’re out running errands as a date?”

“No.”

“Then yes.”

He just chuckled.  And I sat there laughing to myself at how pathetic we are.  Married six months and this is our first date.  We’re a pretty boring couple if you look at it that way.

On the other hand, we do plenty together that we don’t consider “dates.”  We regularly run errands together, eat together, curl up and watch tv together, we even go on walks together!  We just don’t really consider any of those dates 😛  So maybe we need to reconsider our concept of what a date is…  Either way, we do make plenty of time to be together.  If we’re both home, we tend to be in the same room.  Unless one of us is asleep and the other awake.  Of course, since Mo sleeps on the couch in the afternoons a lot, we still often end up in the same room!  This quarter, since we don’t see much of each other during the school week, we’re even worse when we’re actually together.  Joined at the hip as it were 😛

Some days its a trial to be newly married and in school.  When we’re both home and awake the last thing I want to do is my homework!  I think that’s the reason we often make sure we’re at least in the same room as each other.  That way, even if we’re both occupied, at least we’re together.

Ok, back to the movie 😛

I’m not going to give anything away, but I did really enjoy Wall-E!  I never knew I could get so attached to a cockroach…  Getting attached to the robot was no surprise, after all I love C3P0 and R2D2, but the cockroach was a surprise for me.  I thought they put some really interesting concepts into the movie and some great references to other movies!  What movies you ask?  Go watch the movie, and if you still don’t know, then I’ll tell you 😛
