Good Lunch, Bad Movie (and Taxes)

I'm not working this weekend! Like, at ALL!

Instead, Kat, Elisabeth and I had a girls' day out. First we had lunch at the local Mongolian Grill. We love this place because you create your own meal from scratch -- from noodles to veggies to sauces to meat (or fish or tofu) -- and then hand your bowl of fresh ingredients to the chefs, who cook it on a very large, very hot grill. Once it's cooked, the very personalized concoction is placed over rice, another sauce of your choice is added, and voila! Delicious!

We then went to see Because I Said So, with Diane Keaton and Mandy Moore. I love Diane Keaton, so I had high hopes -- but I must say that it was the worst movie I've seen in a long time. The story and script were just downright BAD, the acting was mediocre at best (Mandy Moore was better than Keaton!), and the wardrobe director must have been on drugs. Bad, bad, bad!

It was nice to finally spend some time with my grrrrls!

Tomorrow I'll conduct "Mama's Tax Clinic." I've invited the four kids, all of whom have jobs and go to school (or did in '06), to sit around the kitchen table and fill out 1040's together. Their returns should be relatively easy; my taxes (er, our taxes... I do the finances; Tom rebuilds the house) have been pissing me off all day... and shenanigans like THIS don't help!!

Love the Mongolian Grill, hated the movie (like you, I had high expectations) and who doesn't feel the same way about taxes? :)
