Over the weekend, I took the little princess and Spiderboy to seek Shrek the Third. The little princess and I have not been to the movies in almost two years and this was the first time Spiderboy has been to a theater. If it was up to my son, he would rather see Spiderman 3 (me too), but that movie is too long for him (over two hours long) and too scary for the little princess (she got scared watching Little Miss Sunshine on DVD). Spiderboy and I almost fell asleep during the movie…not sure if we were both very tired (it was only 10:30 am) or if the movie was boring (except for the Incredibles and the first Shrek movie, all kids movies seem the same to me).
My favorite moment at the theater was taking pictures of my kids with the Silver Surfer. The worst experience was getting munchies. After getting robbed at the concession stand, I remembered why we have not been to the theater in almost two years. Speaking of food, I’ve been tagged by Desert Songbird for the Eating Out Meme. Here are the rules for the meme:
1. Link to the name of the person who tagged you.
2. Include the state and country in which you live.
3. List your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location (locally).
4. Tag 5 other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know theyâ€™ve been tagged.
I live near Portland/Beaverton (our area is not a part of any city) in the state of Oregon (USA). We rarely eat out, but these are some of the places I like to eat at (not in any particular order):
Jin Wah – dim sum baby!
Olive Garden – yummy Italian food, but I hate the long wait.
Izzy’s Pizza – they actually offer a lot more than just pizza. I love the buffet, but my wife puts me in my place by out-eating me.
Costco – decent food that is quick and cheap.
Flying Pie Pizzeria – they put so much toppings on their pizza, it’s a struggle to finish one slice.
Hmmm. Who have I not tagged before? How about:
