Crazy Night at the Land Down Under

Last night, we went to the movie and out to eat. We wanted to go to Crockett St., but we had seen all of the movies at that theater that we were interested in. The one movie we had not seen was, "Life As We Know It". We ended up going to the theater in Grapevine. Good movie. We both liked it. (On a side note - we have been going to the movies just about every weekend for the past couple of months. Not so great. We have seen many different kinds and this and Secretariat were probably our favorites.)

By the time we got out, it was after 9 and we were hungry. We decided to go some place close. We had not been to Outback in about 10 years, so we decided to give it another try. It was quite entertaining.

Our waiter came to get our drink order and was LOUD and brash. He asked for our names and used them the entire night, like we were his long lost friends. When he took our order, he sat in the booth next to me. I must say he was pretty funny.

He was having fun "playing around with" Pops. He would sneak up behind him and tap him on the shoulder. He had a huge black cat that he put on the ledge of the booth to try to scare him. He brought out a basket of about 25 knives. His last little trick was when he went outside for a long time. I think he went to get some fishnet fabric out of his car. When he came back, I thought he was going to sneak up on Pops and put it over his head, but instead he put it over his own head and snuck up on him and acted like a ghost.

The food was okay, nothing to write about and the entertainment - well, it was funny, but very strange. We laughed and played into it, but I sat there wondering what some of my "serious" friends would have done had they gotten that waiter.
I'm thinking another 10 years and we will give it another try.
