To start off with a bang, we officially have a WEDDING DATE!!! Saturday, August 5th! The hall is booked – the guest list is more or less complete, the bridal party and groomsmen have been chosen – there’s no turning back now (As my Dad would say, You can’t be happy all your life!) Now I just have to worry about weather or not my Master of Ceremonies and his very pretty girlfriend can get their asses home from
Mitch, Dan, you guys are on the unofficial official guest list ;)
Meanwhile, over in Sarah-town, Sarah starts a new job today! We had originally been talking about her getting some part time retail work, or otherwise work that didn’t involve children. Turns out a Daycare center came to her! Offered her full time work, with damn good pay, and a list of perks and benefits as long as my arm (I wish it was as long as something else!). She started there part time while she continues to work for the family she’s been with for the last two years or so (awesome people!). She hasn’t been in a Day Care environment for a few years, but the place seems nice, the co-workers seem great, and Sarah has all kinds of “dealing with multiple rug rats” experience. Here’s hoping it goes well!
Over to Frank in weather, We’re getting freaking hammered this week. Saturday saw us score a whopping 60 centimeters of snow in the span of 12 or so hours. Wind was up as well. Store was closed, so I scored a three day weekend! Myself and Sarah chilled out, had a pajama day, and watched Treasure Planet with Abby. Great little flick – I love it anyway. Abby seemed interested as well, though every time the action would heat up she would ask what was happening. Saturday night myself and Sarah finally broke out the Clerks X special edition and watched the first cut of the film. There were definitely a few moments I caught that weren’t in the feature, but the original ending sucked, and the Sony soundtrack was much better. The wind and snow finally gave up sometime around .
So it took us about a few hours to dig out on Sunday – the driveway was pretty good, but there was about 5 feet of snow in both walkways and blocking both doors. The three of us went out together and played around in the snow while I shoveled – fun times. There were some flurries throughout the week – and again last night we get hammered!! We only managed 25 centimeters this time, but more than enough to make life difficult. Couldn’t see a damn thing on the roads, and managed to get Sarah’s car stuck on the street in front of the driveway – had to slam it in neutral and shove it into the driveway myself *flex* I’m in fucking pain today.
In other news, I’m definitely a geek. What child of the 80’s didn’t have some sort of interest in Transformers? I had a pile of these things, beat the living hell out of many, and moved back to G.I Joe – but I always had a soft spot for them. Well a few years back, my Mom gave me a few of these Transformers Alternators toys for Christmas back in ’04 – she always picks up some random toys for me, just for fun – and I thought these things were some of the most awesome toys I’d ever laid eyes on. Picture those 1:24th scale die-cast cars you can buy in toy departments and drug stores everywhere, now picture a transformation sequence akin to a rubick’s cube and a fully poseable 8-9 inch tall bad assed robot bearing the visage and namesake of a character you loved at the tender age of 8 or 9 on the classic cartoon! Yeah, these things kick ass! I’m up to five toal now, every time Wal-Mart gets a new batch in I feel inclined to grab a couple – yesterday was one such day. Grabbed Tracks (C5 Corvette Z06) and Skids (Scion XB) – and they are both freakin’ awesome! Check this out:
Review for Full Auto (Xbox360) is up over at The Busted Controller if you feel so inclined – Reviews for Black (Xbox, PS2) and Grandia III (ps2) are forthcoming.
If you ain’t up here shoppin’, you’re up here shopliftin’
