Happy New Year, everybody!
As you’ve probably guessed by now, we didn’t have an “accountant’s baby” over the weekend. In lieu of spending the New Year’s Weekend in the hospital with the breathing and the pushing and the epidural, ((I think I’m going to get one of those “sympathy epidurals” when the time comes.)) we:
- Watched Airplane! with the writer/director/producer commentary. That was kind of disappointing, to be honest. It’s a funny, funny movie, but the guys who created it are really rather dull.
- Got the car seat installed in the MVoD. Fireman Joe was very helpful, offered us some nice tips, then installed the hell out of the car seat! Thanks Fireman Joe!
- Celebrated New Year’s Eve with Laura’s family. As usual, there was enough food for about triple the number of people eating.
- Celebrated New Year’s Day/Christmas ((I was initially under the impression that we were celebrating our belated Christmas on Saturday, but found out Saturday morning that it wouldn’t be until Sunday. It was like Santa Claus kicked me in the nuts.)) with Laura’s family. Same deal with the food, naturally. I scored AVP: Alien vs. Predator and The Incredibles on DVD, ran all the necessary Windows updates on my father-in-law’s computer, ((Scary stuff. He was thirty critical Microsoft security updates behind. Next time I stop by his house, I’m just going to turn on automatic updates.)) and “borrowed” his broadband connection to download OpenOffice.org. As the day drew to a close, we watched The Muppet Christmas Carol.
