First things first: if you’re one of those people who rush into an intersection and block it when your traffic signal turns red, you’re one of the worst people out there. This seems to apply to anyone crossing 82nd Street going south on Allisonville Road, and anybody turning onto or driving on 82nd Street between Allisonville Road and I-69 after about 4:30PM on a weekday. Those people make me want to punch them in their stupid self-absorbed heads.
Taking a deep breath.
After leaving work yesterday, things calmed down a bit. My parents came over with a big box for my birthday, which the Geekling helped me to open. Inside that box?
|Yep. This really happened.|
Yes, that is a pile of fitness supplements from Vitamin Shoppe. Don’t ask me what they are, because I have no idea. Part of my goal today is to figure out what they are. I know one is for joints, one is a multi-vitamin, and the big one is chocolate flavored. Past there? No idea. Why did they get me these? They heard me talking with my little brother about what he uses when he works out, and they knew I wouldn’t buy any of it myself, so there ya go. Makes sense.
Shannon made me my gift:
|Tardis on Paper|
It’s a picture of the Tardis done using an art kit that I bought Shannon for Christmas a few years ago that I’ve been bugging her to use. I love this because she finally used the kit, it’s Doctor Who, and it’s made by her.
The Geekling? She gave me a poopie diaper. I know she reached deep inside for something to give daddy, and I find that touching.
After all was said and done, we headed over to Scotty’s Brewhouse on 96th Street for dinner. Fried Dill Pickles were tasty, the Irish Stout Burger with loaded Waffle Fries was the reason I’m starting to exercise again, and the German Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream was just awesome. Top it off with a Wee Mac from Sun King, and it was a good evening. Forget Brewstone, I need more Scotty’s in my life. This would be very possible if I had the money to eat out more, but this is my go-to now for the question “Where do you want to eat?”
Finally, after getting home, I used some Microsoft Points I won from the Xbox Support Twitter Account to purchase Minecraft for the Xbox, and proceeded to mine and craft for the next few hours until it was time to awesomely fold clothes and head to bed.
Throwing in all the birthday wishes from my friends on The Twitter and The Book of Faces, it was an enjoyable day. Thank you to all who helped make it awesome!Tony
