The weekend.

The weekend was a good one. Busy. But really really good. We slept in Saturday morning and enjoyed listening to the rain and being indoors while it was cold.

Our friends were married at 2:30pm. It was a wonderful wedding. The couple are such expressive, sincere people. It was one of those weddings that left you with a nice feeling, and one that we'll no doubt rave about for some time. When the bride was walking down the aisle she mouthed "I love you" to her fiance. The groom couldn't stop grinning and watching his bride throughout the ceremony. At the reception (fantastic food!) we danced to a lot of mexican pop, 80's music, salsa and also some swing dancing. I even got my husband up and dancing with me. The groom wore a lay, and the bride did a Hawaiian dance for him. The bride's family are of Mexican descent, and the groom's parents are from Hawaii. So it was a nice mix of cultures.

After the wedding, we went to the "Wes Anderson party" (at 10pm). There were a lot of people dressed from Life Aquatic and Royal Tenenbaums. There were a lot of good "margot's". One of my friend's looked just like Margot, it was pretty golden.

Here's a pic of my character, Max Fisher... (Rushmore).

I took a photo smiling. But Max Fisher isn't a smiley character, so decided to take another looking a little more sullen/annoyed.
They are my husband's pintuck trousers. He wore these... (before we got married). Now they are at the back of the closet. I have also realised pintuck trousers are not so flattering..

Sunday afternoon we did housework, and took a nap. Then last night went to dinner with our good friends. We both have our 2nd year wedding anniversaries around the same time (ours is in a couple of months), so decided to celebrate together. We went to a fusion restaurant with cuisines from around the world. There was a romantic ambience, fantastic food (I ordered the slow cooked moroccan lamb shank with dates, cinnamon and Israeli cous cous). We went all out on our wine and had an amazing bottle of La Crema pinot noir.

After dinner we went to see Andrew Bird live. I enjoyed the mix of violin, whistling and other effects he incorporated.

And now its Monday morning. I was late to work. Its a federal holiday here, which my husband gets off... and I don't. grrr.

"Oh that's great. I wrote a hit play and directed it, so I'm not sweating it either."

So we both tucking into North African cuisine on opposite sides of the Atlantic! Or the Pacific, depending on wich way you go. Either way, it's a lot of water.

BTW, the Rushmore soudntrack is great too. Mark Mothersbaugh did the music and it's interspersed with some nice British Invasion chestnuts.

I'm currently testing the following theory:

"Blonds have more fun"

I'll let you know how it goes;)

Classy. That's a spot-on costume. I do love me some Wes Anderson from time to time, although my favorite movie of his is Life Aquatic, which everyone else seems to think is terrible.
