On The Weekend

Friday night saw our return to Taipei Tokyo, one of our regular eateries, and their crispy beef, one of our favorites. Crispy beef counts as one of those over-sauced Americanized dishes, in my opinion, but they do it so well that I forgive them.

Saturday saw us out on a double date. Our friend Mardi arranged to have her mom watch the kids while we whisked off to the Air and Space Museum to see Interstellar, followed by getting Chinese delivered. The theatre was pretty full when we arrived, so we didn't get optimum seats, which works against IMAX. I'll jot down my review of Interstellar later. The exciting part of the evening came when my passenger side door refused to latch due to the cold. Damn car.

On Sunday, we played hookey from church. I worked more on the basement, including getting one wall painted. Getting a fresh layer of paint onto a wall is always a little miracle. I'll eventually work my way around. Jenny got a tunnel built over one of the garden beds. We're going to warm that bed up for a while before I turn it.

I buckled down and put in my new dashboard cover on my car. As you may not know, my new to me car has a beige dashboard, and when the light's right, you see the dashboard reflected in the window rather than the street ahead of you. The black cover is meant to minimize that problem. It works, too. The dashboard glare has been reduced to minimal.
