HOME HOME HOME

On the beach 2 days and I'm starting to feel human, again. Still need more sleep and more booze. Drank a nice Shiraz with dinner after landing Thursday, then a half bottle of Multipulciano last night while grilling burgers for LP and I. Didn't sleep well-it seems we have a mouse in the attic who like to sit right over my bed and chew on something, loudly. I couldn't sleep with his non-stop mastication of something probably not meant for such. Took a flashlight into the attic and found the little bastard. He tried to give me the old Mickey Mouse look but it didn't work-his days are numbered and about to end with a loud snap...

Tonight we took LP out for Pizza, ice cream and to see the latest Harry Potter movie. The movie wasn't as dark and foreboding as the book and watching it made me realize how much the author packs into these latest books. Too much really, to flesh out in a movie. Still, an admirable job, despite leaving out a few elements that are vital to setting up the next book/movie. I think they should have added about an hour to this latest installment in the Potter series. LP was duly scared, excited and entertained and that's what counts, I suppose. I pre-ordered the last book and am contemplating taking LP to the midnight Harry Potter Party at the local bookstore this Friday to pick it up at 12:01.

The girls are upstairs falling asleep and I'm listening to some new punk/alternative music I picked up at sea, while loading up another 1GB SD card for my little mp3 player. This one with all heavy metal workout music. I'm going to take an early morning jog in the woods behind the house, tomorrow and new music will make it that much more enjoyable:)

Yeah! A crew-x post! I will enjoy it because I know they can be rare.

Glad to hear the Harry Potter review. I love those books and movies. Too much fun. You should definitely take LP to the Harry Potter Party. I mean really, it's the last one and you are at sea so much. It will be a great memory for both of you.

So sorry that yer trip to the beach ended up in such a delay. But ya did make a good impression {{ me hopes she remembers it when she's older }} that what goes around comes around. Helping the lady with her stuff could be said turned out to do you something you needed badly. An HONEST person found everything from yer wallet, took it home, called you , and refused the reward you was trying to give her. YAY for her. YAY for you. Seems like ya ended having a good day after all. ;)
