I am not a big Vette fan, but my Dad just got this car and I am itching to take it for a spin. I am not as big a car nut as some people, but I do dig old cars, even vettes. It is kind of hard to get excited about driving a Jeep Liberty, the soccer mom jeep, but its ok, it is a jeep after all. For the most part, I have not had a cool car since my first car, a 76 Firebird... ah well...
I have been working tons of hours for so long, I forget what it is like to not to do so. Even that sounded wordy.. sigh. My writing has suffered a great deal. Too tired when I do get the time to do much of anything. I am transcribing from Open Office to Word a bunch of stuff, in preperation for trying to get it published, or self publishing that is. I have enough rejection letters, may as well try it myself. At least I know the publisher wont send me a form letter. Then again, who knows?
Took the techion-kid to his first movie at a theater yesterday, we saw Cars 2. Sequels are usually meh, but not in this case. I think I liked this one better,nowhere near as sad and it was a pretty good take off on James Bond. Plus who doesnt like Mater being... Mater?
The t-k had a lot of fun. I asked him as we walked out of the theater what he thought, was it fun? he looked at me and said, 'Dad, that was awesome! Lets do it again.' Well that was music to my ears. He seemed a little scared at first by the whole process and clutched my hand until we sat down. Then we attacked the huge box of popcorn we got, watched the previews and he was cool with it all. He laughed and would stage whisper, as only a five year old can, this is cool!
So score for the first movie experience. Of course he wanted go back in and watch it again. Cant we just play the DVD again? Well no.. we would have to buy another ticket and we spent all of our money already. He says oh.. then the wheels were turning, 'lets go the bank and get more money!' I knew if he liked it he was going to say that, I just knew it. Oh well, we went to Target and snagged a couple of the new Cars 2 toys and called it a day. He was cool with that.
I am on an apocalypse kick. We just watched Jericho and loved it. Now we are watching Jeremiah and liking that too. It must be something in the air. Who knows.. it may be just my taste in TV lately. Either way its better then a lot of what is out there.
I think it is time for a nap and maybe then a bit of grilling. Who knows?
