There Is No Security In Obscurity

I’ll admit, for a mom, I really do get out a lot. A heckuvalot more than many other moms I know. But it’s all because the husband is an introverted shut-in. Okay, that might be a little harsh, but he does seem to be happier at home. But I’m going to crash his little party of one and bust him out of his hermitude not once, but twice this week! First, that reception thingie for the art exhibit (the one with a few my photos in it) is tomorrow afternoon. My in-laws are coming down and will be joined by, *gasp*, the husband. I’m as shocked as anyone. Secondly, I decided we should get out this weekend. Just the two of us. Besides…our babysitter is moving to France before long. But now there’s the question of what to do. I’d like to think we haven’t turned into an old couple. Sadly there aren’t any good shows going on (all the big stuff is happening on the 20th, which I will tell yawl about in a future post) and the only plan we ever come up with is the oh-so standard dinner and a movie. Booooooooooooorrrrrring. Got any other ideas? Please. Share them. We need your help. Marty did give me the heads up about the Wicked Sister Dance Theatre’s “Acromancia: A Vaudevillian Menagerie of Acrobatics, Theatre and Dance” at the Old Arizona. Sounds like it’s right up my alley, but I’m still awaiting a yea or nay vote from my other half. So the suggestions? Keep ‘em coming.

Bonus: Oh, evil teevee. I mock you, yet I not-so-secretly love many of your offerings. It figures that the shows I am most interested in are only on cable (if I ever were to succumb even more of my time and life energy would be sucked away, so no thank you). I am intrigued by the SciFi Channel’s upcoming show, Who Wants to Be a Super Hero? With Stan Lee! Must. Resist. Temptation.
Plus: Lately many of my favorite things are found via flickr. Today’s find? This camera van. Sure made me smile, and I wasn’t even near it.
And: I’m so very stoked that The Flaming Lips will be playing in town this summer. But at the Minnesota State Fair? That’s just plain weird. Like the Lips, I guess. Tickets go on sale Saturday.

    I could suggest some Seattle activities for you and the fam, but that might be a long trip. By the way, congrats on the new design and thank you for the RSS…that’s much easier.

    i would suggest the body worlds exhibit at the science museum but with you and your quickness to puke it might not be a good idea.

  3. Joe, I would la-la-love to go to Seattle, but yeah, that sort of trip will require a little more planning. And thank you and you’re welcome :-)

    Zophia, dude, for real. I even have a coupon (for $5 off or something) but I just can’t go there. Yee-uck. Oh, do you want the coupon?

    I saw that camera van when it was in town a few years ago! It was pretty cool.

    oh i so relate to the “what to do” thing! we have a sitter for 2 hours a week and because we are so out of practice we end up going ot the supermarket or taking the dog out. still - to be able to go round a supermarket and actually concentrate without having to peel the boy off things is pretty good…

  8. I know how that goes. We often do our grocery shopping *with* the little man, but generally expect it will take longer that way (another reason it’s good to be working 20 hours/week instead of full-time) and that he might just run into someone’s shins with the child-sized grocery carts and/or attempt to hug the cashiers.
