it's a magical day in future history.

It's snowing again in my neck of the woods. I was out shoveling the other night and the snowbanks were nearly as tall as me. I felt childlike moving through my shovel-tunnel. We've slacked off on roof clearing though, last nights local news featured building collapses. If some serious melting doesn't go on this weekend I suppose we'll be roof-clearing.

I think I'm going to rent Ender's Game on ppv. Is it worth five bucks?

Who's got the most exciting weekend planned?

Two questions:

1) Do you hate teh gays?

2) Do you hate yourself?

If the answer to either of them is no then don't rent the movie.

I've already read the books, so presumably I sold out my **** brethren years ago. I really enjoyed them though.

Otherwise there is jDepp in Lone Ranger. Husband would probably prefer that.

It's been in the 50's and sunny here, lots of wind, but all good conditions for melting all the snow. I might have to take the motorcycle out.

Ender's Game wasn't worth the cost of the rental fee imo. So if it's strictly a cost analysis examination I'd say wait till Netflix. I read the first book some time ago, and it left me feeling ripped off at the end. The movie is much like that except that it also left out most of the interesting character development, which was the only redeeming factor of the book.

Picking up girl scout cookies today!

Then we're going to ATL to pick up a 50 lb pack of rice and eat at a noodle shop.

Otherwise, no big weekend plans.

They're working on their "Savvy Marketing" merit badge, I guess.

Seriously, my troop would set our table up outside of the PX on Fort Gordon. As a formality, we would always send our cutest Brownies to the office of the post general to get permission to do so (and permission was always granted, because cute Brownies cannot be resisted.)

We always recorded the highest sales in the entire district. Smiley: laugh

Nieces' first birthday party is incoming, should be interesting to say the least. They're going to have an open bar, which is a nice wild card at a kids party. Smiley: rolleyes

Add to that my wife and her sister aren't getting along to well at the moment. Oh well, I got my popcorn.

Smiley: popcorn

Well so far most exciting weekend is a tie between Samira's viewing of Lego Movie, spg's birthday party with booze and Cat's gs cookies.

Won't take much for someone to steal the title.

I'm pretty sure my girl scout lady was trying to avoid me earlier today. Obviously she's not yet sorted and bagged her kids cookies. Smiley: bah

Worth $5.00 but don't expect too much. $5.00 isn't a lot of money though so that's not a very high bar.

This will be me next weekend, as the keys to my new home will be placed into my hands a week from today.

This weekend all I have to look forward to is a lot of dump runs and trying to figure out what I can pack without searching in a panic for it amidst boxes for the next week. Trust me, for a family of five, that's actually pretty **** hard.

According to my wife there is this show called "Breaker Bad" or something about a some German guy trying to cure cancer using magic crystals... sounds kinda weird to me.. but I think she mentioned a bomb-making turtle with a human head... so I guess it could be interesting..Smiley: clown

Probably some DayZ Standalone if I can get the other players off WoW (anyone else play DayZ?)
..as well as me and wife continuing protecting the Shire with our new Hobbits on LotRO.
..then (maybe) catching up on some work..(I HATE CODE!!)

HEY, for some reason NONE of this involves going outside.. imagine thatSmiley: smile

We're going to World of Beer tonight, if that's exciting enough for you. Oh, and Tomoka Brewery tomorrow night for their "grand" reopening thingy.

Good opportunity to get rid of a lot of crap. Also I recommend those giant see through plastic bins you can get at Walmart or Target. They make it easy to look for stuff without having to open boxes and dig through everything. We all swear up and down that we'll label stuff to make it easy, but that never seems to go as planned.

And grats on the new house!

Thanks! Yeah we have those bins amongst others, but when you start stacking them like wobbly legos and you need something in the middle bin.....

God I am so glad this will be our final time moving until our kids are kicked out for college.

My favorite part of moving is when you're unpacking and you find things you thought you lost in the previous move years before, but they had just been crammed in the wrong box and left in the attic for a couple of years by mistake.

I do love the fact that I'll most likely lose some weight with the stress and heavy hauling. Does that count?

We haven't had an attic ever, but we do have a garage with boxes I haven't opened since we last moved over 4 years. I'll most likely stuff them in our first attic and forget about them Smiley: grin That said, I do love unpacking. It's like Christmas, only I already own it. I'll be happy a week from our move in, once the painters are done and I can start putting everything up. And we get some sort of roof/shade over our deck. And we convert one of the sheds into a clubhouse for the boys. Then I'll be able to shoo the kids outside without worrying (fenced yard) until dinnertime. Oh my god I can't wait for that day. I've waited for that day when I can kick them outside to play in their own yard for years Smiley: yippee

Attic, garage, crawlspace, back corner of the hallway closet, it all counts. Smiley: grin

That yard thing sounds like awesome wrapped in amazing though.

I have an upper respiratory infection which means I'm good for about three minutes of activity before I need about 20 minutes down time. There's any number of directions you can take that for a **** joke and I invite you all to think creatively. Meanwhile, I'll be wondering how on earth you can get winded from typing.

I just did my grocery shopping for next week so that I have no reason whatsoever to leave the house this weekend. The weather is supposed to be mild, but after the week I've had, I'm not feeling very user friendly. I do have three boxes of midget cookies to binge on though, so there's that.

Best part of moving for me is losing a slot screwdriver and wrench, and gaining a hammer and a Phillips screwdriver. Sometimes I think movers just can't help themselves from moving stuff, so they move your tools to the next movee.

I'm seeing my seven month-old granddaughter this weekend. Which means I'll be 30 bucks or so lighter after my daughter hits me up for "gas money."

Speaking of moving, we'll be finishing our packing tonight and moving tomorrow. Nicer, bigger apartment. Time to say goodbye to what was basically a sick house for the last year and get some happy memories in a new place.

Grats on the house D!

Yay for nicer, bigger, healthier place to live! Gratz Nads and thanks! Sick and I just went to Lowe's for last minute budget stuff. We ended up playing with the fridge we bought for a good 15 minutes, decided we like the idea of a red washer/dryer, and he's now insisting we buy a double oven that has a purple interior. Smiley: lol

Jonwin got just enough hours at work this weekend, that he can't get unemployment this week. I washed all our dirty clothes Friday and now face the last 2 baskets, that need folding.

My back is hurting, so instead I been spending my weekend playing Civ5. After the last couple games against random Civs, I will no longer allow the Incas to live.
