Weekend Part II: Humor is my aphrodisiac

2-15-11 giggling brain
Over the years I’ve come to realize that I’m really not so much of the romantic type, but what turns me on is humor, and the “funny-silly” type of guy. Some one like Steve Martin was my leading man, when other friends had eyes for Brad Pitt, or George Clooney.

So for our Valentines weekend together, Greg made sure I had plenty of laughs. Friday night we attended the Oscar nominated Animated Short Films, which was showing down at the Trivoli Theater in Westport. Molly went along with us. It was hard for us to pick our favorite, but the one called “Madagascar” had the most incredible artwork that I have ever seen in a animation. Guess that could me my favorite one.

On Saturday night, Greg took me to see the one man show of Martin Short, held at the theater at the Johnson County Community College. Short has many memorable characters from this time on SNL, and movies. My favorite for sure is Jiminy Glick and I was ecstatic when Jiminy Glick made an appearance in the show.

Back in Des Moines Sunday evening- Sue, Carolyn and Ann came over to watch the Grammys with me. We all brought some food together and it was fabulous. I made an Indian dish, Carolyn brought a healthy salad, Sue brought dessert, and Ann also brought another Indian dish (not trusting that mine would be good?) and she agreed to make us some home-made naan bread, since she is half Indian… she knew what she was doing!

 Watch out! HOT bread!

  1. Sounds delicious! I love Steve Martin too. Once upon a time, I thought he was the one for me. Never met him tho'. Saw him in person in the late 70's when he was doing the arrow through the head and "happy feet". He was unbelievably funny.
