People: me with plumtreeblossom May 2007
Lovely weekend. (Isn’t that how all my posts start?)

On Friday, I met plumtreeblossom after work in Central Square (with some difficulty, since I was incorrect about where the CVS we were supposed to meet was), and we went to Shalimar of India, where I had exceptionally good lamb korma. Then we went to joyeous’ birthday party, where we had a delightful time chatting with folks, watching Treehouse of Horror and (if I’m remembering correctly) little snippets of Return of the Living Dead in honour of it being Friday the 13th, petting her housemate’s very soft bunny rabbit, and generally having a lovely time. Thanks to audioboy for giving us a ride back to Mare’s place.

On Saturday, we met a friend to go to the Flea, where we had a productive day of shopping. Then we got a ride to my house in Quincy, where we had a game of Munchkin (plumtreeblossom’s first) with cathijosephine and darxus and watched a little bit of Spun, a creepy-funny movie about speed freaks that they were watching when we came in. I like the fact that we spent our Valentine’s Day with three other people, and that didn’t detract from it being a sweet, romantic date

On Sunday, after breakfast at a little hole-in-the-wall diner near my house, we went to the Museum of Science, where in addition to wandering around the permanent exhibits a bit we saw the frog exhibit and watched an IMAX movie on the Spirit and Opportunity Mars rovers. Then after a brief stop at the Cambridgeside Galleria so we could both drool over gadgets I took her home. We both have tomorrow (Presidents’ Day) off, so we’ll have a day to rest and recover from all the fun. And we do have an awful lot of fun.

The Frogs exhibit was produced by Clyde Peeling's Reptiland, one of the finest zoos I have ever been to. I went there once with my first wife, who was a trained zoo docent herself specializing in reptiles and raptors, and we both really enjoyed the place -- their love for reptiles and amphibians is abundantly clear.

Another interesting connection: I saw the Frogs exhibition back in 2003 at the New Orleans Aquarium while on a conference junket (Frogs has been around for some time). At the time I was head over heels for, well, a certain frog of our mutual acquaintance, and I went in part because it reminded me of her. Despite how things wound up, that's a happy memory. And then I saw the exhibit again with Kat in New York City -- it was there when we were too, by purest chance. Life's little synchronicities are amusing.

You and the lady do have a lot of fun. You're a joy to read about as a couple; you were always among my favoritest people in Boston, so it's fitting that you found one another (I used to have a small crush on the 'Blossom, if you didn't know). I hope we can double-date -- no, not that way, much as I like you both -- someday when we're back Stateside.

Yes, we were hoping she could join us. But we got a group membership so we can take her back sometime!

Thanks for the link to Reptiland! I’d love to see their reptile exhibit sometime.

How is Munchkin? I've never played and it's one of those games I pick up every time I'm in a gaming store.

Thank you for the best Valentines Day weekend I've ever had! I love you, my honeywuzzle!
