Date Night

September 2, 2007

Yep, we had another of our fabulous date nights tonight. Because this date lasted for hours and hours, the kids were often part of it. Sometimes they ran away. In Jesse's case, sometimes far, far away with his hands over his ears. (But just a couple of times. )This evening's date featured Taking Turns Finding YouTube Videos. Who knows what got into us after supper? We were just sitting around after a meal of Randy’s Famous Sunday Night Fried Rice, and we had a hankering for just one harmless music video (Depeche Mode, "Somebody"), and it ended four hours later with Harry Chapin's "Taxi." In between was an eclectic mix from Billy Joel to Don McLean to Rush and all sorts of old favorites. We also had a special viewing of "Puff the Magic Dragon" and "The Marvelous Toy" for Duncan and Laurel, who were flitting here and there during much of this music video feast. And hey! Some of the videos were actually karaoke-fied, so some lyrics that have been mysteries for 25 years were cleared up tonight. Like, in Dan Fogelberg's "Another Auld Lang Syne," the line actually says, "She said she'd married her an architect." I always that it was "army tech."

Who says date nights can't be educational as well as entertaining?
