one hundred.

My 100th post! A very exciting milestone in the blogging world, if you ask me. One hundred is what? Gold? A golden post?

Perhaps not. Just a simple update about the lazy weekend Andy and I have been enjoying. I guess it may be golden to some: it's all in the eye of the blog-holder.
On Friday, Andy and I finally got around to seeing The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. We tried to see it earlier, but were sadly turned down due to it selling out. It didn't turn out too badly, though because we ended up seeing Doubt which was a fantastic film. But back to Ben. The movie was long, but wonderful! Great visuals, great story, great acting - all about a great love. I definitely recommend it (and Doubt) to anyone looking for a good escape. Ben is more for the weepies while Doubt more for the thoughtful. Both wonderful. 
Saturday was a lazy day the entailed Andy and I finally exploring the produce market we have in town. It has only taken us two years to get around to it. And it was a wonderful surprise. I picked up some great looking things for the week ahead. Simple things just to spice up salads or side dishes. We also got some crepes from a local coffee shop after dinner as a little treat. We hadn't been in a while and I was craving a Chocolate Monkey crepe; all good excuses to make the short drive. 
Today we've mostly lazed around the apartment after our weekly trek to the super market. Nothing wrong with that. Tonight I'm looking forward to snuggling up on the sofa and watching the Golden Globe awards - the start to the major award season. I'm always a sucker for these movie and tv award shows because I love watching movies and good television (when it can be found). I've managed to see a few of the nominated movies, but not as many as I had hoped. A lot have not even come out here (like Frost/Nixon) which is a total bummer, but I'm sure I'll see it one of these days even if it's not before the Oscars.
Hope everyone else has had a good weekend. Looking forward to the week ahead and the upcoming three-day weekend.
