Dan and I got a scooter/moped/whatever you want to call it. It’s like a Vespa, and it’s yellow. We spent most of yesterday scooting around town and getting used to driving it. We took it to this restaurant called Panini 38, which is also a wine bar.
I don’t know if I mentioned this or not, but Dan got a job doing computer stuff for a care center place. Anyway, we went out and bought a scooter because our hours overlap so oddly that we needed a cheap, CHEAP second mode of transportation. After going to pick it up and what have you, we spent the rest of the glorious day riding around by the beach in 70+ degree weather. That is, until the sun set.
Dan and I had agreed to try that new restaurant and splurge on a nice dinner to celebrate his new job. While we were at dinner taking our time to savor our food, the weather became much, much colder. By the time we finished dinner and hopped on the scooter to go home, the sun was down and it was about 45 degrees. Add a winds of 35-40 mph and it gets pretty cold.
We were frozen by the time we got home. But anyway, it was still fun.
Sunday, we went to go see “Be Kind Rewind.” I really, really enjoyed it. It ended up being a little more serious than I thought it was going to be, but still funny. Michel Gondry’s use of camera tricks for the film is delightful.
Good weekend. It’s storming like mad out right now.
