battin' .500 and feeling fine

I managed to catch G for a brief moment-without-an-audience today, and said "Hey... normally I make it a rule not to hit on customers, but - would you like to go to dinner with me sometime next week?"  Her smile lit up the whole service bay, and she said "I'd love to... but I have a husband."  Hahaha, dammit, maybe the ring disappeared because a jeweler is soldering it to a wedding band for her or something.  Oh well.

We chatted for a few minutes about personal stuff before I left.  No awkwardness at all, and that radiant smile just wasn't going away.  I think that's the first time I've ever gotten turned down for a date and had it make my day... husband or no, I'm still glad I asked. =)

The Chronic (WHAT?) ... cles of Narnia!

Leigh and I went to see Chronicles of Narnia (FINALLY!) tonight.  Among the more notable quotables:

Leigh: "Is it bad that it's not five minutes into the movie and I'm already a little teary?  About the kids having to leave their mom?"
Me: "Um, actually yes.  I'm going to have to call you 'loser' for that later."
Leigh: "Shut up, I have a uterus!"

...

Me: "Is it wrong that I want to pet Aslan?"

...

Leigh: "OMG!  HE HAS TWO SWORDS!  THAT'S SO BAD ASS!"
Me: "That's called 'fighting Florentine.'"
Leigh: "WELL IT'S STILL BAD ASS!"

In unrelated news, I totally thought the Witch was played by the same chick that played Galadriel in LOTR.  Because, as the Witch, she looked EXACTLY FREAKING LIKE Galadriel in LOTR for those few terrible moments she's thinking about accepting the Ring and turns cold and says "ALL WILL BOW BEFORE MY TERRIBLE BEAUTY!Exactly like that.  Totally not the case though.  Whups.  Also, if you thought the wolf's voice sounded familiar?  Dunno who you thought it was - or who I thought it was - but it's a film editor from Shrek I and II.  No voice parts in either movie.  No other credits anywhere.  I guess a generic Wolverine voice is always gonna sound familiar no matter who delivers it, huh?
