Serenity Now!

Anyone fans of Firefly?
I just got out of an early screening of "Serenity" the movie based on that series and it ROCKED!
I can’t speak to those who dont know anything about Firefly, but for those of you who, like me, have seen all firefly episodes at least once, it really delivers.
So what do I say to not spoil it?
The characters you know from Firefly are all there, the humor that we know and love from Joss is there... Everything I hoped!
There is a lot of action and as usual just as much violence as the situation warrents.
On a personal note, I won a set of 3 Serenity comic books by singing a line from the Buffy episode "Once more with feeling". A woman tried to sing the opening song by Buffy but sang quite a few wrong words. SO I stood up and said "Those words are not right!" and proceeded to sing out loud and proud!
Yea ME!

Been a long time, shouldn't have left you...

Without a blogpost!

Hey guys, I have been having a fun/busy time the last couple of weeks. This last weekend I spent camping nearby here. Even though it rained SO much we had a great time. It was all made possible by a huge picnic shelter at our group site that we "camped out" under when it rained. Gave us a place to dry off during the Saturday morning rainstorm, and a place to play cards in during the Saturday afternoon rainstorm. After stopping just long enough for our Saturday night guests to set up their tents and us to cook out over the fire, we went back into the pavillion for more cards.

That night it was Crazy lound and wet. It rained ALL night as far as I knew, and when the thunderstoms passed by I managed to catch a few good hours of sleep. We had water in our tent of course but nothing I could feel from inside our sleeping bag.

Thanks to Chris and Karen for inviting us to camp.

Reward Time

Ohh, I’m excited. Just one more pound to lose and I am at my lowest weight in YEARS! Now what was my reward again?

  1. Dresser

  2. Krispy Kreme Doughnut (just one)

  3. Bit of Jewelry     

My next goal is to stay under 150 lbs till next summer, and the reward for that will be a Power MAC for my video editing pleasure.

Labor Day Holiday

Evening folks!

I am “supposed” to be getting ready to leave town so of course I am killing time doing anything but.

I am heading to ND tomorrow morning and will be there for nearly 3 full days. I have a sibling’s birthday party to go to, friends to visit in Fargo and hopefully some quality time with my family in Grand Forks.

This last weekend was really great. We had a 30th Birthday party for a friend which brought us up to a water park/hotel in Minneapolis and then some gardening that took up much of the rest of the weekend. We did a bit of lying around and lots of harvesting, canning and pickling. There is not a lot of the growing season left so we have to make time to harvest when it needs it.

Hope you all had a good holiday weekend!

Ren Fest!

Ren Fest was very fun! We saw jugglers, jousting, costumes and were even entertained with the King and Queen.

I took a slew of pictures so I will find a couple of the best to post here. My favorite parts were the big turkey drumstick, the Juggling and the costumes. Might even find something to wear myself for next year, anyone take bets on if I can get Brandon into tights? Can't get something made by Halloween at this pint, but I can shoot for Ren Fest next year!
