a date with this dude...
after a week of lots of work and social engagements every single night,
saturday me and this weird wacky and wonderful hub of mine decided to opt out of everything else going on.
we absconded from town for a sacramento date.
just like the old days, took us back to the early 2000s when we'd gallivant the streets of midtown at all hours.
we hit up our favorite theater, the majestic and old fashioned Tower, where the seats are funky and old, the air is warm and sticky, the popcorn is greasy, the bathrooms are pink and everything is just right. we went to finally see the new film by one of our favorite directors, Terrence Malick. darin has been on the edge of his seat to see this one; both of us have literally been waiting for years.
it did not disappoint, oh no no no. have you seen it yet? if so, i really wish we could have a cup of coffee together and rehash it all.
please go see for yourself, o spacious hearts. the Tree of Life. (don't read the review though, just go see it first)
the two old ladies behind us just didn't get it. they were talking at full volume the whole time. some people walked out. i don't know how to explain that.
afterwards, in some kind of rhapsody, we headed across the street to the record store and the bookstore. damn straight that's our kinda date! darin was pleased to purchase a new cinephile magazine and we had the luck to run into our good friend and musical whiz kid michael working at the record store but i struck out on the new bon iver, picking it up later at the Beat instead.
that little corner of town sets a romantic scene, what with the fountain and roses and bicycles and sunlit 1930s theater and all. we lingered til darin got too hungry to keep taking photos.
i really love how the trees make a crazy ascending nest of my hair:
so we headed to our other undying love. zelda's pizza, with the best cornmeal crust pizza in the world.
the lighting was too dim for darin to successfully enjoy his new magazine, but hey, we figured, we'll just talk instead.
and i am very lucky because with darin, that never gets old. never. he is fascinating, good at trivia, a wizard, hilarious and fun. sometimes isn't it so nice to just grab hands and head out into the world together just the two of you? and guess what? that's what we are about to do again! we leave tomorrow morning...it is our four year anniversary and we've got another adventurous getaway up our sleeves! more about that when i return. hope you're having lovely romantic blissful days my dear ones.
