GREAT movie (thank you Pixar for a fun, smart movie that doesn’t rely on potty humor & words that make me cringe (stupid, sucks, hate, dumb, idiot, and others of that ilk)).  Go see it.  It’s a ton of fun.  Not sure who laughed harder: my 7 year old, the 20 something guy sitting next to me, or me.  And there was clapping.  From all around the auditorium at various parts of the movie.  Clapping.  I love it when people clap in a movie.  It’s such a pure sign of pleasure.

But now can we talk about PF Changs for a moment?  As a celiac, I’ve heard again and again how great PF Changs is, but I have to say I did not feel well after eating last night.  Not one bit.  Perhaps it was psychosomatic as I grew worried when the food runner got confused about which dishes were supposed to go to each table on the tray he was carrying.  I double and triple checked to make sure that the plates he put in front of me were gluten free, but remained fairly disquieted by his “uh, yeah… those are gluten free”.  I was happy with the little packets of tamari that they brought for me instead of soy sauce (I always worry about a careless worker refilling a tamari bottle with soy sauce instead, so the packets were very reassuring) and the food tasted good for what it was (cheap, mass-produced “chinese” fare that is about a millenium away from how I normally eat (seasonal, organic, whole foods)), but will I go back?  Maybe next June 21st, but probably not before that.  Looks like I’m not alone in this either.  *Sigh*
