Had a good weekend, not too busy and largely pleasant. I hope you guys managed to have a good one as well.
As you’ve probably heard by now former President Reagan has kicked the bucket. I thought about writing about his passing, but I couldn’t think of anything I wanted to say. I wasn’t particularly fond of Reagan as a president, but I have to admit to a certain amount of nostalgia when I compare it to the current administration. So, he’s gone now and that’s all I really have to say about it.
Drove up to visit my brother and his family on Sunday as it was my nephew’s birthday. We brought a birthday cake and a gift certificate for Best Buy as gifts and then I helped my brother spend a grand on a new computer that they’ve needed for a long time now. I had sat down the night before and speced up a killer gaming rig that’s actually slightly better than the setup I have and I’ll be headed back up probably this weekend to put it all together for them once all the parts arrive. I told my nephew I’m looking forward to meeting up with him online so I can school his ass in some Halo or Unreal Tournament 2004 to make up for the schooling he gave me on the Xbox version of Halo. I just can’t get the hang of playing first person shooters on the console. The controller is a poor substitute for a keyboard and mouse for games like that.
Didn’t get out to see the new Harry Potter flick so no spoilers in the comments. Will probably try to get out to see it sometime this week or coming weekend. Not that I don’t already know how it ends after reading the book so I don’t know why the hell I’m worried about friggin’ spoilers. Damn, it’s still early and I’m not quite awake yet.
I was going to play some Call of Duty yesterday in honor of the 60th anniversary of D-Day, but I couldn’t find my game disc so I’m all annoyed about that.
Haven’t won the lottery yet and I must say I’m starting to get annoyed about that. I think it’s about time I won. Suppose this means I should go to work this morning. OK, fine, I’ll go one more week, but then I better damned well win that lottery.
