How was your holiday weekend? Mine was uneventful – lots of sun and relaxation, a perfect holiday weekend.
Reading…The Age of Miracles. I flew through this book. It has a strange premise; the earth’s rotation has slowed down, increasing the length of the days, and wreaking all kinds of havoc. It’s one of those books that you find yourself pondering; it really makes you wonder if something like this could happen and how the world would react if it did.
Watching… The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and The Monuments Men. I really enjoyed both of these. After watching 20 minutes of Walter Mitty, I thought I was going to hate it. I almost switched it off. I’m glad I didn’t; I ended up loving it. The soundtrack was really good too. I enjoyed the story of the Monuments Men; I’ve added the book to my “to read” list.
Eating… Patty Wagon Burgers. I had heard really good things about Patty Wagon but hadn’t tried it until this weekend. I really liked it. The fries were delicious and the burger was as good as Tuckers. My favorite is still Smashburger but that’s just because of the fried pickles.
Wanting… Western Digital 3 TB WD Hard Drive. Since upgrading my Tivo to the Roamio, I’ve been a little short on space – especially when I record entire seasons to watch later (something I’m trying to do more). After reading how easy it is to upgrade, I’m saving my pennies/gift cards for this much larger hard drive.
Sucked in… to the Tour de France. I didn’t catch World Cup fever like everyone else, but I did get sucked in to the Tour this weekend. I’m even contemplating getting the iPhone app so I can watch through the week.
What have you been up to lately?
