Wait, is that Celine and a digital Elvis? Are you kidding me? This is ridiculous. Why did Celine sign off on this?
Anyway, last night Val and I were in Jackson and the television sound was screwed up in mono so I don't really have much of an opinion on last night's show. Seems that no one really messed up, though. Melinda and Jordin are in a different class altogether, is what I gathered.
UPDATE 9:00 p.m. - So why were we in Jackson last night? To celebrate the one-year anniversary of our first date.
You may now either "Awww, that's romantic" or "Uggghh, what is with these people?" as is your first instinctive reaction.
Yep, our first date started at the bowling alley. What can I say? She knocked over my pins right away!
I bowled a lot better this time! That may be my best ever. I guess it helps when you're not entirely focused on trying to impress the woman you're courting!
Why can't I be this cute in those shoes?
For dinner on date one I took Val to her first Japanese hibachi steakhouse. Double bonus: She didn't like the veggies, so I got a second helping!
Saul's Mound, the largest of the Pinson Mounds south of the city, where we went on our second date, and had our first kiss. Ignoring that we were on hundreds of years of Indian history, possibly including burial sites. Here's hoping for no "Go to the light!" moments in our future.
Something we most certainly did NOT do last year on our first dates, but can definitely enjoy now, we had a whirlpool suite at the AmeriHost Inn. Although for the second time in a month, we couldn't figure out how to turn the jets on until it was time to go. Grrrr. Which means we basically enjoyed a really big bathtub.
And so begins year two of the continuing courtship!
