I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving. We stuffed ourselves, had a great time with family and friends and are now relaxing at home.It is an extended weekend for many, including myself, and the time is being spent hanging out, watching movies and playing games. Nothing productive going on here, folks!
My wonderful wife and her mother went out on their 4th annual Black Friday mission last night. They left around 9:00 PM, headed to Wal-Mart for their first sale event that began at 10. My boy and I stayed home, popped some popcorn, sipped some Dr Pepper and watched Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, and played Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga on the PS3. Our son has just gotten into the whole Star Wars thing and absolutely loves the Lego version of the characters. He was super excited last night because we told him he could stay up as late as he could stand it. I finally caved at 2:00 AM and told him if he went to bed we would get up early and go have breakfast somewhere.
So, at 8:30 this morning we got up, got ready and went to Shoney’s with my mom to enjoy their fabulous breakfast buffet. The Wife joined us shortly after we got there. It is a new record, being done with their shopping that early. Last year they didn’t get home until 3 the next afternoon! Tonight – not having any of those pesky left overs – we picked up some KFC to snack on and The Wife and I are about to wrap presents. I also watched the new Conan: The Barbarian movie today. I was surprised that I liked it. Do not always believe all those negative reviews you see online or hear on television from half-assed movie critics. The only real problem I saw with the movie was that, in action scenes especially, there was a delay when they switched a scene – as if the actors were just standing there waiting for the right moment to begin the next take. Over all, though, I enjoyed the story, the acting wasn’t that horrible and the action was a tad bit over the top, but fit perfectly into the fantasy-type world of Hyboria.
Tomorrow … well, I’ll have to talk about tomorrow when it gets here. If anyone who visits my site or receives updates when I make a new post has noticed, I deleted my previous blog post. I’ll explain that tomorrow – I hope. Nothing bad to report, just correcting my own rush to make a purchase and hoping for the same fantastic support from a local store.
