Came home on Friday, ate dinner, played with Joey most of the night, went to sleep.
Saturday, the wife & I decided to finish up unpacking, and cleaning up the apartment (we were done with most of the unpacking), so we started doing chores, but once noon hit, our TiVo, in its infinite wisdom, decided to record the TV series "The Stand" based on Stephen King's book, because its AI determined that I'd like that kinda movie.
Seeing that we had worked for a little bit, we got a little captivated by the movie, and, within the first 45 minutes, sat down on the couch and started watching. The 2 hour 'part I' (out of 4) was almost finished, which left me with a sour taste in my mouth, because I wanted to see the rest, and didn't know if it was out on DVD or not (its an old series from like 1994). It was on the scifi channel, so I looked to see when the next parts would be on (if at all). Well, it happens that they were running them all in a row. 8 hours of "The Stand" fun. I looked at my wife, and she, knowing what I was thinking, said "NO WAY! Not 8 hours! That's CRAZY!"
Long story short. We ended up in front of the TV for 8 hours (I tried recording some of them to our TiVo, but our TiVo is the oldest model, and can only hold 14 hours, killing a lot of stuff we hadn't seen, yet). Now, we aren't the type to just watch TV all Saturday, but we had a good time, playin with Joey, making dinner and stuff while watching the series. And the series is GOOD. The only big disadvantage was that it didn't have much of a budget, which really began to show with the special effects (granted, they prolly had a good budget, but when you make an 8-hour movie...). Anyway, it may be worth watching, if you've never seen it (or it may be worth reading the book, although the book is enormous, IIRC).
Sunday was church, me making pasta and salad dressing (which, for some reason, I was always afraid to do. Dad was always really critical on how the salad dressing tasted, so I was always afraid to make it. Well, I kicked butt on it and made a great batch). We watched some of the games (football is a priority in the Marotti house). The Browns game was unfair (yeah, even a Pittsburgh fan could tell you that was just a dumb rule call), and the Buc's ending was funny. St Louis needs to get their sh*t together.
Tonight will be the wife going to bible study while I get to show my son his very first Steelers game
BTW - The journal title is from "The Stand" if you didn't know.
