I woke up sore this morning from all of the Wii playing yesterday. I slept in a bit, and when I woke up, I jumped right back into Only Begotten Daughter, making some more headway, and enjoying the story very much. Kelly and I decided to head into Georgetown today. The weather was nice and we thought we’d wander around, and maybe see a movie. I got in touch with AJ and Denisse to see if they wanted to join us. Turns out they were both working today (on a Saturday!) We headed into town around noon and were in Georgetown around 12:30 PM. It was nice. I wore my new wool J. Crew coat. We wandered around for an hour or so, ducking in and out of various shops (Banana Republic, of course–Kelly cannot pass a BR without going inside.) We didn’t buy anything, we just looked around.
I was actually somewhat surprised that it wasn’t more crowded. I expected the crowds to be legion, but perhaps that was yesterday and things perhaps had died down.
We did go to the movies, catching a 2 PM showing of Quantum of Solace. It was a fun movie to watch, but I didn’t think it was as good as the last Bond movie. After the movie, we walked leisurely back to the metro station and headed home.
In the evening, with the fireplace roaring, we watched White Christmas, which is my favorite holiday movie. After the movie, Kelly went to bed and I sat in front of the fire, finishing up the last few pages of Only Begotten Daughter. It was a very good book, and I could see the seeds of Morrow’s Godhead trilogy in that book. I’m glad I decided to give it another chance.
