Review Wednesday

So we have a couple of things to review today.  First let's establish our rating scale:

Shitty (Poor)      Not Good (Fair)         Ok (Good)        Great (Very Good)        Too Die For (Awesome)

1.  Yesterday was my Birthday = TOO DIE FOR

Many people (family, friends, co-workers) made my birthday very special.  My kids got me adorable cards that made me laugh:



My girl takes after her momma :)


My boy - well - yeah he'd take the money :)

I had a wonderful lunch, shared with friends, at 2Booli where I indulged with a Tawook Wrap with extra garlic sauce.  I was stinky all afternoon - but it was so worth it.

For dinner, I went to Mitchell's Fish Market.  Had an amazing meal which included the Spinach Salad and the Shang Hai Seafood Sampler - Fresh Talapia, scallops and shrimp, steamed with ginger and scallions and served with sticky rice, spinach and rice wine soy sauce.  Can you say YUMMMM! 

Then, for dessert, I got this bad boy (for free!!!).  “Sharkfin” Pie - The original. Butter fudge ice cream, honey roasted peanuts, fudge, peanut butter, Oreo cookie crust.

What the description doesn't say is that it is enough ice cream to feed 4 people! 


2.  The Ides of March = OK

Well, although it wasn't hard to tell they were in Detroit, the landmarks they used were not very identifiable to me.  The storyline itself wasn't bad - it actually had some twists and kept me guessing what was going to happen.  The major cast players (George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei) did an excellent job.  Politics are very dry to me - but this movie was more about the "dirty" behind-the-scenes campaigning.  Definitely was worth the FREE movie ticket I got from my Entertainment coupon book. 

Thank you to everyone who shared my day and made it so special.  Love you all.
