Saturday was a great day! It started with a shift as boat host on the ARTHUR FOSS for NW Seaport. The sky was clear blue and the temperature was perfect for me. In my two hour shift we had 30 people come and tour the boat. I’m really looking forward to my shift this coming Saturday as the Lake Union Park Grand Opening is earlier in the week and there should be lots of activity next weekend.
Next hollyqueen and I went to look at rental in South Seattle. While it wasn’t a bad place it was too far to commute every day for a rental. Also there was a “For Sale” sign in the yard and I’m not comfortable renting a place that’s for sale.
After that I had to run home to shower and change so that cheesentoast could take me to the Cirque du Soleil show Corteo. Wow, what an amazing show. It was beautiful and impressive. cheesentoast and I had a lot of fun talking and turning heads in the crowd. My favorite was the guy who agreed with me that it was ok to be a kept man. His wife didn’t look like she agreed though.
Once the show was done we went and picked up hollyqueen who was stunning. She had hours to get dressed and she used them to great advantage. We went out to dinner and they sat across from me. A feast for the eyes, body and soul. Lucky me!
On Sunday I picked up $little and we went to see The Forbidden Kingdom (2008). I enjoyed the movie and if you’re a fan of wushu, particularly wuxia, films you will too. I don’t think the TFK has much general appeal but if you enjoyed Hero (2002), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) or Iron Monkey (1993) you should check it out. The Forbidden Kingdom is closest to Iron Monkey in action and content.
After the movie I met sirraimnis, ogremarco and hollyqueen at Three Lions Pub. It was great to talk and visit for a bit before hollyqueen and I had to leave to go shopping. We both agree that we need to spend more time with them and introduce them to Coupling. The rest of the evening was pretty miserable as I was having a bad time with my health.
