I look elvin in this picture...it's pretty bad of both of us, but at least we weren't trying to look hot.
Dylan was into the show and his food! He ate most of it which is a good amount and even ate Lindsey's dessert. They start you out with a vegetable broth soup and garlic bread. Then they bring you half of a baked potato w/ seasonings on it, a full chicken and a rib on the side. You had your choice of pepsi, tea, or water. You situated your cup so you handle stuck out a certain way so they knew what drink to give you. Pretty smart. You eat with your hands. They did print the menu on a small napkin and brought around wet naps after all the courses. I mean this is 2008 people, not the 15th century.
Lindsey got tossed the flower from our knight. It had some title to go with it, but I can't remember.
As a side not you can pay a little more and get front row seat, a sweet plastic banner in the color of your knight to wave, and they will do a knighting ceremony with you before. They'll also announce your presence if you submit an anniversary, birthday, or some other event you want people to know about... I'm glad we went, I'm not sure we'd take the opportunity to go any other time. It was fun.
I gave in! I walked by the books in Wal-Mart and there it was, $8, on the end of the aisle. It's actually a striking cover in large numbers. There's just so much peer pressure to read these books so I gave in. I actually liked it. Not so much for the feelings/romance aspect. This girl has a serious problem with her fascination with Edward. So, what!? He's a vampire. Big deal. Pfftt.
Anyway, I did enjoy it and I'm going to get the New Moon and continue on.
It's been a while since I really read a book and I am rediscovering how much I do enjoy reading. If you know of a good book, please let me know - it does not need to be a series necessarily. I actually prefer single books that stand alone b/c then I don't miss out on anything if I don't finish a series. IE Harry Potter- never made it through book 5.
