Stuff Going On

There’s lots of stuff going on lately, though no individual thing more important or cool than any other. Just random stuff.

Went to see Hostage, starring Bruce Willis. I thought it was pretty good. A little formulaic, but fun all the same, and entertaining, which is why I pay the money to see a movie anyway. It was out of focus just enough that it bugged me and made me feel like my glasses were weak, but I told the theater folk and they didn’t do anything about it. It makes me want to get a job as a projectionist just to show them what “focus” means. This is the second movie I’ve sat through out of focus recently (Sahara was the other) and it’s not just me who notices.

Noticed that my local Albertson’s supermarket carries Bawls, which pretty much made my week. I didn’t succumb to ordering it online because the shipping kills you off (drinks are heavy). But I could never find it around here. Went into the store looking for something to eat late-night and happened to walk by the drink case where I saw my Happy Beverage. Mmmmmmm. Love it. They even have sugar free now, for those on diets. I haven’t tried that yet. I may have to check it out and see.

Went out to dinner with Jenn’s family last night for her dad’s birthday. We ate at Marie Callender’s. Now, Jenn and I are trying to eat better (and, lately, much less, since the fat content of our bodies has sort of escaped our personal comprehension) so eating at a place where everything is loaded in cheese sauce is probably not the most conducive to losing weight. We ended up finding some shrimp-laden pasta that we each only ate half of and will finish the rest for dinner. I guess if you gotta eat a bowl of lard, it’s best not to eat it all at one sitting.

After we left there, Jenn’s mom gave us a nice Easter basket full of chocolate bars. I appreciate the intent, but exactly what we didn’t need for Jenn’s self-proclaimed lack of willpower was a big bowl full of chocolate. Not sure what I’m going to do about that yet.

Since I haven’t sprung for the hard dance pad yet, we went out and bought one of those plastic mats that people put in offices to roll their chairs around on so we can set our soft dance pad on it and maybe get a little better response from it. I’ve been playing a little more (gotta get your exercise) and steps that I know I got don’t get counted because the mat slides around. I’m hoping this will help me out.
