As the title mentions, I’m very, very sore. Today I headed off with my cousins Steve, Mindy, Becky, and Julie (plus Paul and Julie) and payed about 3 hours worth of football with a few of their relatives. Quite fun, and also quite cold. For those of you who aren’t right around here, we got some snow last night… Not the 12 inches some pot-smoking meteorologist said, but snow nonetheless. Now I hate snow, and I hate cold, but I enjoy football, and running around like a moron. (the two really are one of the same for me) Anyway, snow -> (trying to remember what my point was), snow, plus 3 year old Vans with 0 traction = about 1000% more effort involved in getting the body to move and stop. I can now feel every single joint, whether it is currently in motion or not. I am not looking forward to tomorrow morning.
Yesterday was another full day. (Scanning brain to remember what I did yesterday) I got picked up by Sven (w/ Becky, Julie, and Paul), and we headed off to his place. Played much Euchre, got some pizza, then we all headed out and saw Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I thought it was pretty good, but not quite as good as the first one. Sven and I spent the first hour trying to remember where we had seen the actor that played Lucius Malfoy. (We finally remembered, he was from The Patriot) Afterwords, it was off to Fridays to deplete their bar, then on home to stay up too late for no justifiable reason.
This evening, after football, we all headed back over to my place to watch The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Special Edition. It was the first time I actually watched the extended version, and it was amazing. It is seriously one of my favorite movies of all time. It’s also very long. December 18 is going to be a very good day. For that matter, December 13 is going to be a good day as well.
