    How did you spend your Saturday?

    I love and hate Saturdays. Hate: I tend to think of it like the etch-e-sketch of the seven day week: "Well, I didn't finish such and such this week, so I'll get to it on Saturday." Love: I tend to also think of it like the get-out-of-jail-free card of the seven day week: "Well, I didn't finish such and such this week and I don't plan to get to it on Saturday either, suck it Monday through Friday!"

    How do you spend your Saturdays?

    Today I wasted my day watching movies on Netflix....I meant to work on my roof....

    I drove down to Shelbyville this morning and got to ride a snowmobile for the very first time. Hung out with some buddies down there and then headed back to Hillsboro for a UFC party tonight at a neighbors' house (it's the big GSP vs. BJ Penn fight).

    I did get a chance to stop at a couple of Wal-Marts today on my drive and picked up the Thrawn/Talon Karrde comic pack and a Resolute Cobra Commander.
    "To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence… When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." - C.S. Lewis

    Volunteered as an interview judge for the local Academic Decathlon this morning, did a bit of shopping this afternoon, and have done very little that I should have after that. Am looking forward to tomorrow's Big Game* thought.

    I worked at Wal-Mart today. As an assembler, I built a few bikes, fixed a couple of endcaps, then built 6 office chairs, and chatted with a fellow assembler, seeing as today was my last day for possibly a month.

    After work, I shopped for Valentines stuff for my wife, got me a pair of jeans, but we were sold out of the ink cartridges I needed for my printer. I have to print up plane tickets, and a to do list for my son while I am away.

    Next I stopped and got my haircut, and beard trimmed. Afterwards, I drove to Staples in nearby Addison, only to find out they had no ink cartridges for my printer either, and they were closing/moving after the store closed this evening.

    Next, I called up my son, and asked him if he wanted to go to dinner with me. My wife was working, so just my son and I went out for a beef at Portillos, they have the best beef ever. y son suggested a portillos right across the street from another Wal-Mart close to our house. After dinner, we ran to the Wal-Mart only to find they also had no ink cartridges for my printer. We were just a block away from an office depot, so I went there seeeking my ink cartridges, they had a limited selection of dell cartridges, and I found what I thought were the ones I needed, however when I returned home, I found that they were not, so I returned them unopened, and I was on my way.

    I called a Wal-Mart in Addison, which told me they only had black ink, no color. I decided I would try another staples a town or so further down the road. As I was driving I found a different Wal-Mart, stopped, and found the cartrdges I was looking for. I also stopped at a Target after one of the regular collectors told me he got 2 of the BMF's for under $30 each. I didn't find not one. I got home shortly before 9 pm, and I still have a lot to get done before my flight tomorrow.

    I played the Lego Star Wars Complete Saga video game for over 4 hours!

    It's so addictive!

    I spent most of mine searching and gathering paperwork to send to Florida since they ripped me off of over $1,000.00 for what they say is back child support.

    I saw "The Wrestler", "The Reader", the shopaholic movie & "Watchmen"

    after how depressing the first 2 movies were, it was nice to see a light one, even if it was a chick flick.
    Ex-wife to me in the toy aisle: "Why do I sense we've picked up another plastic lifeform?"

    Thanks to sebillba for the trade!
