Mary and I finally caught a showing of The Fellowship Of The Ring tonight and it was really impressive. Very cool cinematography and special effects, coupled with excellent casting and acting made for one excellent film. I’m looking forward to watching this in the theater again already.
In a way it’s too bad there are so many other quality films coming out at once because a few gems always tend to get lost in the shuffle.
Hanging out at home now that I’m back from practice. I haven’t played any Deimos Rising in a few days, maybe I should blow twenty minutes doing that.
I also really, really need to clean up the top of my desk. It's reached critical mass— if I put anything else on it, important stuff is going to start falling off. Plus I need to find room for my sister's iBook so that I can finish upgrading it.
In other fronts I'm going to have to jump start my car sometime during the next 18 hours. Between the cold and lack of use it's received in the last several days it refused to start this afternoon when I needed to go to practice. Repeated cranking on the ignition only succeeded in running my battery down and in the end I had to borrow Mary's car. That was fine for today, but we really need two functional cars by tomorrow morning.
Well, the weekend is almost over and my Christmas shopping is nearly done. Mary and I did some shopping together this afternoon which was good, but bad in the sense that I couldn’t finish shopping for her present. I bought a couple things for her yesterday, but I wasn’t really satisfied with them. I’ve got my side of the family completely covered though. Hopefully I’ll able to get Mary’s gift wrapped up by noon tomorrow as well (literally and figuratively).
I’m getting pretty tired now. I’d better turn in so I can get an early start.
