The weekend was actually pretty calm.
Picked up Jen on Friday and her and Tommy and I went to the Pizza Buffet to get our grub on. I have to admit that I really wasn't feeling it too much, but that didn't stop me from dropping a couple plates of pizza and some cinnamon rolls. The place was packed.
After that it was off to Iggle to get some video games. We wound up staying up til 11 or 12. (I stayed up another hour after the kids crashed).
Tommy's game was Saturday. I filmed parts of it for the team video I'm doing. Saturday afternoon Jen and I chilled while Tommy and Nancy swam at the rec center. She (Jen, not Nancy) actually spent a good part of the afternoon in her room editing her first movie (yes...I am insanely proud, thankyouverymuch).
The evening was capped off by a very disappointing trip to Olive Garden. To go into detail here would be to give that event much more credibility than it deserves. So, pffffth.
Sunday Nancy had rehearsal and Jen finished up her movie. We burned it to DVD and screened it. "Recess and Other Stuffs" was an instant hit, although it did make Tommy a little dizzy. I thought about putting a link to it up here, but thought better of it when I realized kids that were not mine were also in the video. Best to let Jen worry about the distributions and screenings :-)
Needless to say, it was very cool.
The rest of the weekend was pretty even on that keel. Some stuff over in TwistedZen Productions-land also occurred, but I'm too lazy to type them twice, so click on the link if you're interested.
And that's all I really got for now.
Talk to y'all soon!
(and you'll be happy to know that another thrift store run is planned for Wednesday evening...stay tuned sportsfans).
I'll leave you with my new favorite quote, courtesy of Scott Adams, cartoonist:
"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
This post is going to be a little bit all over the place. If you know me, you are probably used to that by now. If you don't know me, we...
