Yes indeedy! It was a mother’s day Miracle!
Rejoice people! I found my books! Woot!
I was so stressed out when I couldn’t find them. Luckily they were right where my brother said they’d be. Well, maybe not exactly where he said they’d be but pretty damn close.
I also found a few other books I had forgotten I even had. Plus!
So now I have my Death Gate Cycle and my copy of Dune back on my shelf and everything is at peace.
Let’s see, what else have I to tell you on this fine day…
I went down to visit my brother and his girlfriend this weekend. That was decent. We got to meet Megan’s cats, Momma, Bela, and Lugosi. Man is Bela an attention whore! Whew. They were cute though. Lugosi was a little chicken (though he did rub against my hand at one point much later in the evening).
But anyway, we all took a trip to Augusta. We stopped in a Cosmic Charlie’s. My mom had been wanting to check it out for a while now since we hear the commercials for the place on the radio constantly. To be honest, yes, they did have some cool stuff here and there, but I wasn’t all that impressed by the place. Especially the downstairs “rabbit hole.” I mean, come on! They’re selling pot paraphernalia and calling it tobacco pipes! Please. No one smokes tobacco from a bong people!
But anyway, after we came back from Augusta we went to the movies. Why is this such a big deal, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. I haven’t been to the movies in quite some time. Over…I think…two years. It felt kind of weird actually. Why, I can’t really say. But it did.
We saw “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”
Now, I thought the movie was very decent. I loved the fact they included Remy LeBeau (Gambit for you non-fanatics that may not know who Remy is). But I could launch into a whole spiel about what they did wrong concerning the story. Like Deadpool. They completely screwed his character up at the end. Though Ryan Reynolds did perfectly as the character in the beginning. I won’t go into it though. I’d be here all night pointing out the little things that didn’t quite jive with the comic and other things that were completely made up for the sake of the film. I think X-Men was one of the few comics I actually tried to follow as a kid (so I like to think I know what I‘m talking about). Mostly because I thought Wolverine was cool and Gambit was hot…… What? Don’t look at me like that. Yeah I said it. I meant it too. I thought (and still do) that Gambit was hot. I could care less if he’s a comic book character who’s the product of someone’s imagination. That means little to me.
Ok. That rant’s complete.
Carry on with your lives, mortals. Carry on.
Oh, I played procrastinator again this weekend, hardcore. I left my poor camera sitting in the bag all weekend, begging to be let out. My bad. It’s official.…I fail at photography.
But I do believe that is all I have to report for now. More to come…hopefully.
Keep on rockin’ on!
If you haven’t already, go give your mom a hug! It’s her day damnit!
