We went to see “The Two Towers” last night with 8 guys at the 10pm show. That was a good time. The movie was incredible. From everything I’ve been hearing I was afraid the movie would veer far off course from the book’s story but it was generally accurate. I was actually afraid it was too accurate and might be hard to follow for those who hadn’t read the book but they said that wasn’t the case.
Into the theater we each smuggled a can of Pepsi, and in the silence after the previews, before the feature, we opened them in sequence. “Chchshsh”, “Chchshsh”, “Chchshsh”, “Chchshsh”, “Chchshsh”, “Chchshsh”, “Chchshsh”! Oh yeah!
This morning B sat up by himself in his crib and was crawling in place on the kitchen floor. He wants to get around so bad lately that he slides on his belly but he’ll be crawling soon. He’s also started to immitate us when we make a growling ‘ahhh!’ sound. What fun!
Short rant here: Has anyone else noticed the surreal proliferation of jewelry ads this Christmas season? I’m so sick of it (Sorry C, no jewelery this time around)…Everyone repeat after me: “I’m Richard Kessler….and I want to be..*your* jeweler.” <gag!>
Yesterday I went to lunch with my family. G had to go to the bathroom. I explained to him that we were going to use the Men’s room. He pointed at the other bathroom and said:
“Is that the grills?”
“Yes it is. The girls”
“And this is the guys?”
After we got back to the table he said:
“Are mommies mens?”
“Are mommies womens?”
“Yes they are. They’re women. And what are daddies?”
“Daddies are men!”
Good weekend. Got the Christmas tree up and decorated. Got the lights on the house but there’s a small section out so I’ll have to check that. We had a party for G with some of his friends on Saturday.
It’s interesting to me: I took a week off from work but since I didn’t really have anything to do during that week I think I got a little down in the dumps. When I went back to work I couldn’t believe how much better I felt! There’s something about work that makes me feel good.
We went into the “studio” on friday and started recording. Things went really quickly considering that we spent over 1/4 of our time on setup. Props to Mike F. for the use of the “studio”
I tried out a burger from Tom’s Drive-in this week. Pretty good burger. Nice flame-broiled taste. Good Price.
A random thought follows: People have been using the term anal a lot recently. As in, “he’s really anal about his lunch break.” But I have a question. If someone is anal, does that make him an anus? …Just wondering.
Well, I did something really dumb 2 nights ago. I shot my rifle without ear protection. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem to take a few shots without ear protection. People do it all the time. But for some reason my left ear wasn’t working very well after the first shot. It’s not 100% yet but it is slowly returning to normal.
Well here they are. The halloween costumes. If you can’t quite see C’s nose, she was Pinocchio.
By the way, I’ve noticed quite a few votes coming on on the quotations of the day. I’d be interested to know who’s voting.
