Weekend Goodness
Monday, May 28, 2007
I have been a little slow with my postings lately. -=giggle=- Oh well, better late than never I suppose. So this weekend has been a busy but wonderful weekend. Friday came and went at work. I was still busy but for the most part I got everything but the stack of filing done. Friday night was game night and as usual it was a lot of fun. I am not playing the character the way that I want to though, so I need to make adjustments to my RPGing skills. Saturday Grim and I woke up early and went to my mom's house. My grandparents came up from Ohio for the weekend so we decided to go to Lake George and spend the day. It was beautiful! I loved hanging out with my Grandparents and it's always amazing to see their witty sense of humor that I have also adopted. The first store we hit in a series of little shops along the strip is a painting store. Mom is browsing for different paintings to put up on her walls. I started flipping through the clearance area for something that catched my eye. Then I found this...

Meet the newest addition to my art collection. Grim got a kick out of the fact I found it. Actually his exact words, "Leave it to you to find something like that." It was only 20 dollars but I have gotten frugal in my age so I was turning the idea around in my head for a while. My grandma walks up and looks at me, "I'll get it for you."

Color Me Stunned.

So she bought it for me, "compliments of the casino." She one a couple of hundred so she was all happy and paying for little things for everyone. So I put that in the car and we walked so more. Grim, Boogie (My brother, Larry), His friend Zack and I went into a haunted wax museum. It was pretty standard, but there were three awesome parts that I want to share. The first, bodies in body bags hanging from the cieling of a corridor you have to go through, when you step on the floor about halfway in, they all start twitching. Yep, I yelped like a girl. The second thing, a mirror room with strobe lights. Very disorienting but cool. The third, a tunnel that spins around a stationary ladder. The tunnel is littered with stars and it makes you feel like you're going around a circles. Zack got so dizzy he ran headfirst into a wall. We all laughed, including him. The day goes on, lots of laughs and window shopping. My mom bought me a bell anklet. After I while Grim and I got tired so we went in the general direction of him. Stopped by Hollywood video and they had a 4 for 30 dollars sale. So we bought Children of Men, Pirates of the Caribbean 2, Pursuit of Happiness and Descent. We also got a video game Grim has been hunting for. Then home for games and Chinese food. Yesterday we lounged and napped. Then we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 3. GREAT MOVIE!!!

Then of course Knitting!! I finished my Stepmom's set of dishcloths (see completed list to the right). I started working on the nightgown but didn't get far. I was so tired I screwed up the pattern so I frogged and I am going to start again when I am a little more concious. I also have to hunt for patterns for more washcloths. I want to find a nice one for my mom's set. I also have to start on the Calorimetry for Grim's sister. I think I am going to cast on sometime this week for that one.

Today, I am going to hang out and go for a walk with a friend of mine. That's about it really dears.

Talk to you soon!
