i *heart* fridays
We're going to have a pre-Valentine's dinner tonight at the Old Bridge Hotel, our wedding venue. "Awwww how sweet", I hear you all say. At least I think that's what you said. Anyway, in an attempt to avoid the crowds, set menus, and inflated costs of restaurant meals on Valentine's Day itself, we're going out tonight instead.
I rang the Old Bridge about booking a table for Monday night, and was informed that it was a set menu costing £65 per person. "You get champagne on arrival", the hostess told me. For £65 per person, I would expect champagne and a backrub from a fireman throughout my meal, thank you. Needless to say, simply booking a table three days prior to this means the same excellent quality food at less than half the price. No fireman, but that I can live with.
In a bid to avoid daytime television, I have started ordering DVDs online from Blockbuster's. In the post today, we received "Shaun of the Dead", "The Village", and "Supersize Me". Film reviews coming soon.
