Happy St. Patty’s, Dear Journal!
Spring is becoming more and more evident every day.
I forgot to mention a few things yesterday, given the photo/video nature of my limited entry. Father in-law toddled off to New York this week, so BHK and I are playing cruise directors to the mother in law. BHK stopped at Ch’NaCa for a pair of #6 needles, and I finally used store credit and a gift card to pick up God Of War III and Wii Sports Resort.
Chris took us out to supper at 3 brothers pizza a salad and Sicilian style- half meatball for BHK the more omnivorous, and half mixed veggies for Chris and myself. We planned on doing a little minigolf, but it closed before we could get around to playing. Instead, the gang promptly headed home, and Chris enjoyed beating me at the sword “chop duel” game. BHK excels at Basketball / Archery , and my games of preference are the air combat and wake boarding. Golf is pretty keen, too.
BHK and I got a little wanderlust this morning, and went to take a peek at Aardvark… I was pleasantly surprised to see they were still open, though they’re moving at the end of the month, and stopping all video rentals – just comics & games now. Upside, we got a fistful of movies for $7 (~a buck each) –
- Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil
- Gormenghast (vol 1 & 2)
- Near Dark
- District B13
- Feast of All Saints pt1 & 2
- Night Watch – Extended
Not too bad – I’ve only ever seen the first and last of those films.
A, we went to Play’n’trade and I swapped some old controllers, software and $20ish for Infamous, Drake’s Fortune, and Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 (Games are buy two, get one free – basically I bought one, and got one on credit, and got one free.) Not sure if I’d go to PNT unless I had loot to swap out, but they do price match game stop, and take best buy / game stop gift cards! I’m pretty good for a *LOOOONG* time for PS3 console games.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Shaun and his sister there – I don’t thing we’d seen him since the polar bear swim… and we still have some of his stuff at the house. We made plans to play a little Ticket to Ride or Small World with them both sometime soon.
BHK got a little nibble to eat at the local fried chicken joint / Japanese grill – not as good as My Grill was up in Deale, but it was quite yummy and good-sized portions.
Came home, and picked up Chris – watched Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil while having a nibble of Chinese food. BHK had never seen the whole thing .. it makes me want to go back to Savannah (our Georgia journey pics are a bit out of whack, it seems there are a couple of FL pix in there, but most are properly tagged)
