Today was quite a day of surprises. What started with a bad headache, turned out to be a pretty enjoyable day. I had a rendezvous at foodlife, a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant setup as a cafeteria of a number of kitchens where you can choose what you want to eat as much as you want. I had delicious roast chicken and mashed potatoes. (I know it was the Great American Meatout, but it was a special occasion. I will try to observe the Meatout today instead.)
After a walk around Water Tower Place, and some extensive time in Teavana, a movie was in order. On the menu: Alice in Wonderland. I had been wanting to see it for awhile. It was really well done. The colors throughout were magnificent and I really like Johnny Depp‘s performance. Sometimes when Depp plays off-the-wall characters, I am less than impressed. But as the Hatter, he was really good. Although he does slip into a Scottish accent every once in awhile, and I still don’t know why.
Overall it was a much-needed relaxing day!
