Dressed up with Andy and Amanda

Posted 11 May 2005

Last Friday (May 6) Andy, Amanda, and I went out for a formal evening. I took a number of photos and whittled them down to the best few of the evening. And of course in Andy's case, by "best" I mean "worst". Redefinitions of common words aside, I had a lot of fun, and hopefully you will too while browsing all of the photos.

First up, we went to Burger King and picked up some foodage. "House of Wax" was next on the agenda, although I didn't watch most of the movie due to the gore. I think the movie was about trucks or something. See, this guy is driving a truck, right? Then this other guy was driving a truck. Then something really, really, really, incredibly awful happened and I couldn't watch. Next thing I know this girl is trying to get away in a truck. Then I couldn't watch most of the rest of the movie.

After the truck movie was over, we went out for ice cream, but ate the ice cream at Borders to switch it up a bit. I also found "The Princess Bride" for $10!

$10 later, we found ourselves at Andy's apartment, listening to Josh Groban and a few other selections to showcase the quality of Andy's hand-made speakers. Then, back to my place to watch "The Princess Bride".

One of the best things about the evening was the number of the comments we got. Nobody said anything at Burger King, but at the theater the ticket ladies asked us where we were coming from, and insisted we were playing them when we replied "Burger King". After "House of Wax" a gentleman approached us, asking if that night was prom night, and when we answered that we were just being formal for formal's sake, he responded that it was great to see that kind of thing. At the ice cream parlor, some girls asked us why we were dressed up. I think we got some other comments, but I don't remember them all.
