nothing

I don’t really have anything to say, but I haven’t posted since Saturday so I feel obligated…

Let’s see. Yesterday, we briefly attended a picnic after church. We were there just long enough to eat and for Jacob to break a few balloons. They had clowns there doing face-painting and making cool things out of balloons (like dogs, flowers, etc.) Jacob wanted a flower. It took the clown a few minutes to make it and then the countdown was on. 10…9…8…7…***pop*** I was just about to say “Make sure you don’t drop the balloon in the grass or it’ll pop.” Too late.

Afterwards, we came home and Brian watched the Steeler game while I fooled around with my new hobby of making cards. Later that afternoon, we attended Brian’s work picnic in Bellwood. Nothing like a waste of a completely good Sunday.

I guess it could’ve been worse. After we got home from the work picnic, I got to fool around with my card hobby again, whereas Brian had to go to a church council meeting for two hours.

And sadly, last night was the season finale of both Six Feet Under and Entourage. It’s not TV…It’s HBO. At least Malcom in the Middle and Arrested Development will be starting up again soon. And, there’s always football to watch on Sunday nights.

shed

If you’ve spoken to me since Memorial Day, you’ve probably heard me talk about the shed we were building this summer. Well, I’m glad to say that it’s finally done. Here’s the final picture:

Over Labor Day, we got a bunch of things moved from the woodshop to the shed, so Brian’s a happy camper because it gives him a little more room in his cramped shop. It is also the future home of the motorcycle! motorcycle! motorcycle! How else would I have motivated him to build the thing?

garden state

Yesterday, Brian’s parents took Jacob to the Cambria County Fair. Since they were anticipating a late arrival home, they suggested that he stay overnight. We were hoping to catch Fahrenheit 9/11 at the Westwood Plaza Theatre, but, its run was over on Thursday. Fortunately, another movie we wanted to see, Garden State, was playing. What a cool movie! Zach Braff (J.D. from the sitcom Scrubs) wrote, directed, and starred in the movie. There were so many absurd things going on in it, that I’d like to see it again. Besides, any movie with two dobermans in it (albeit briefly) is ok with me.

Here’s what the Flick Filosopher had to say about it:

We saw one of our neighbors there so Brian invited him to go out for drinks with us afterward. We were going to check out the new Album Cuts bar, but they had some karaoke thing going on and it was PACKED so we ended up going to the Westwood Gardens instead. It was decidedly NOT packed. Two Advils later and my head still hurts, so I guess I had a good time.
