Date Night

Last night the Wife and I got to go out on a nice date night. We got a sitter for the kids, one of the teens in the band. Even though she's 16, she still knows how to act like a kid and the boys had a lot of fun with her.

The Wife and I went out to dinner (Applebee's) and then a movie. I have a bunch of free movie tickets from work so it was time to use some. We went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It was pretty good. It's always hard to see a Harry Potter movie after reading the book. There's just no way you can cram an 800 page book into a little over two hours. Like Goblet of Fire, they got all the main elements in the movie, but so much was left out. Kreacher was barely in it and more would have been cool. I just love Alan Rickman's Snape and wished they'd given him more screen time. He steals every scene he's in. The actress that did Delores Umbridge nailed the role. Just the right mix of sickly sweet and evil.

The only other thing we would have liked was to have the painting of Sirius' mother scream at everyone. That would have been so cool! Still, it was a nice night out. We'll have to do it again soon.
