an account of the evening's events.

i bought myself a ticket to
"jane eyre" this evening & entered
the theater anxiously
awaiting the movie's beginning.


my seat was ideal, nestled comfortably
in the very back row of the theater,
but as luck would have it i happened
upon a familiar face
a few rows in front of me.


what luck!
it was none other than
the man i happened to marry,
benjamin frandsen.


we caught up until the lights went down
& decided to stay next to each other
during the movie. and OH 
what a movie.


we engaged in laughter...


...we engaged in nail-biting...


...yes, we did indulge in a few tears....


...& when all had been said & done,
the plight of jane, mr. rochester & co.
left us completely drained,
emotionally speaking.


...it was not difficult to observe that
benjamin seemed a little nervous,
but luckily he was never
left TOO emotionally drained
to keep us from going
from this:


to this:


all in all, to say that our fortuitous 
meeting at the movie theater, 
as well as the movie itself, 
were great successes would be 
a devastating understatement.

benjamin & i thanked
each other for a beneficial,
upstanding evening.


we left the theater heartily agreeing 
that "jane eyre" was an excellently
executed movie, a real gothic delight
& the truest adaptation ever
presented as a moving picture, & that 
we would zealously encourage 
any & all to attend in the future.


benjamin happened to have with
him a certain card, received as
a gift at his recent wedding, allotting one
a certain amount of money to use
at a local eatery. his cordial
invitation for me to accompany
him was graciously accepted.



we supped at red robin until
bellies were pleasantly stuffed.




an enjoyable night was had by all.
