Great weekend

I think we had one of the best weekends we've had in a long time. It had just the right mix of activity and laziness. Friday after work we met at the movie theater and saw Aliens v. Predator - Requiem. We had tried to see back on New Year's Eve but the projector crapped out about 40 minutes in and they couldn't get it back up. This was a our local theater that we never go to unless all else fails. Looks like it'll be a cold day in hell before we go back again. Anyway, it was pretty good. Not as good as the first one but still good. After we went home and played some Texas' hold-em to determine who could pick what we were going to watch next. He won. Put in Four Rooms. If you like off beat humor you'll like this movie. Just make sure no kids are around. I like the movie but HDiTty loves it. Tim Roth and Antonio Banderas are the best people in it, although many others are pretty darn good too.

I was in bed by 2am, not sure what time he came to bed. I got up around 10:30 ish or so and by 11 I was soaking in the tub. He got up a little after noon and then we laid and even wrestled (and yes, I mean wrestled, that's not a euphemism for anything else) around for awhile until we had to get ready to leave. Stopped off at Target and got gifts for two of my nieces and then headed over to their father's house for their birthday party. We were there by 3:30, just before everyone else showed up but still late. Food was ready and on the table by 3:00. But then, it was all food that was ok with sitting out, it just got a little chilly is all. Around 7ish we started playing Apples to Apples Jr. Which was one of the gifts I had bought. We played until 11:45 when the 2nd game was finally over and we realized what time it was.

Got home and finished watching A Night's Tale, which we had started while eating a little bite before we had left to do the gift shopping earlier. I was in bed around 3, once again, don't know what time he came to bed. I woke up around 10:30 again but laid in bed snuggling with Cry Baby and Whiskers. When I finally got up I was hungry and going to make blueberry muffins. But the muffin mix I had bought a while back turned out to be unusable. I had left it out on the counter the day I bought it and Cry Baby at some point tore it up, but didn't realize it when I had put it away in the cabinet. So when I went to make it and saw all the holes in the bag I decided there's just no way I was gonna use it. Damn cat!

I ended up eating pretzels instead waiting for HD to wake up so we could have a proper breakfast. He didn't get up for a couple hours though. I was playing poker on line, losing and winning but nothing big either way. He finally got up around 2:00. A little bit later I let him get on the computer for awhile. And for the rest of the day we watched tv/movies, played on line, played cards with each other and general did much of nothing. It was really nice. At nine we watched some of the news and saw that it had been a basically nice day outside. Who knew, not us that's for sure. But that's ok, even if I had known it was nice I don't think we would've gone out.

I like weekends like that, we need them more often.

I love Apples to Apples, Jr. I like that basically, you can play with kids without having to handicap anyone. Another great game for the 8 and up set is Rat a Tat Cat.

Yep, I believe we only had to explain a descriptive word to one of the younger ones only once. Much better than the older version having to help them out so much because they don't know what a word means or who so many of the people are in their hands. We still have a lot of fun playing that one, it's just easier playing Jr. with 'em.

I love Rat a Tat Cat. We discovered that one last year on New Year's Eve because one of the adults brought his kids and it was the only game at that time that we had that a kid could play. We had never played it before then but was completely hooked within 2 games. We plan on making it into a drinking game one of these times too.

Sounds like a great weekend. I like Four Rooms quite a bit and those two are easily the best.
