Where I've been this week

It’s been an interesting week so far. This will be my first attempt at documenting some of the more interesting things I’ve seen this week.


I first took a visit to an unusual bar, populated by many people who should not have been there! That was pretty cool, in my opinion.


Then an author I read described how he’ll watch certain movies to the end if he finds them while flipping channels. I don’t flip channels that often, as we don’t subscribe to cable in our house. Hello? It’s the internet age: There are too many different ways to watch the TV shows I want to watch, when I want to watch them, without being tied to the sofa at a specific time on an arbitrary day decided by some network exec that makes way too much money. /rant


Being an introvert (not shy, introvert – there’s a difference), I struggle to mingle and get to know people. Apparently, getting out and mingling with other geeks can help.


Someone else who apparently needs a different kind of help: some lady who apparently doesn’t like books, but really likes condiments.


Then I had a nice blast from the past about the elementary school I attended. I also saw a trailer for movie me and the kids definitely need to see! (Though I think the 3D thing is silly.)


I love to read, so this might be handy for me.


The eyeglasses I wear darken when I go outside into sunlight to protect my eyes. Now there are windows that darken when it’s warmer outside to keep heat out. My house needs those!


Also?  Want!


Here are a few good rules to FB by. Here are some other ideas, too. (Those last three I went to find after seeing the first linked article.)


I plan on taking the family to see Toy Story 3 at the drive-in tonight, and I’m sure most of these will blow right past us!


Have a great weekend, and Happy Father’s Day!
