I’m looking forward to Tuesday afternoon, because at 3:30pm that day, I’ll be off on vacation for the rest of the week. Yay! My brother and his family are still coming in to visit us. Stay tuned for photos. My mission this weekend was to go looking for bath toys and books. It was a difficult project, looking in the toy department…but I managed. Just for the sake of the children.
Speaking of toys, I bought a few things for myself recently. One was something I’ve been meaning to get for a few years, the other was an impulse purchase. Both are worth the money. Here’s my much awaited gift:
This is one of my favorite shows on the Discovery Channel. For awhile they were only airing the show at 2pm on weekdays, so I could never catch it. Then they started airing two in a row starting at 1pm and another at 2pm. I can catch one when I’m home for lunch during that time. Anyway, I wanted to buy the DVDs for a few years now. Then I read yesterday that they have seasons 3 & 4 (if I read correctly), so I’ll eventually buy those too. It’s a great set, I was watching some yesterday. There were a few episodes in the beginning which spooked me enough to want to see more. One of them, “The Haunting of Summerwind”, gave me chills. Now, though, seeing that one again…and during the day…doesn’t seem as creepy. But I still enjoyed watching it. They’ll be the perfect thing to watch when it gets closer to Halloween.
“Star Wars: The Force Unleashed” was my impulse buy for yesterday. I saw the commercial for it a few days ago and loved the effects and what the character can do to enemies. Apparently between Episodes 3 and 4, Darth Vader takes on a secret apprentice. So this game has the person playing from the perspective of the young apprentice who’s supposed to battle all sorts of people, creatures and machines for Darth Vader. He can do all sorts of things to his enemies – electrocute, hit with his lightsaber, force push (sends a wave of energy to knock out the enemies), etc. My favorite maneuver, so far, is that the character can lift up an enemy using “the force” and then with another button he can impale the person with his lightsaber. It’s pretty awesome. Not bloody, though, but it gets the point across. Money well spent.
So that’s about it for now, I’ve gotta get ready for work. Oh! And I have a few new outfits too from when my mom and I went shopping on Friday afternoon! I had half of that day off because I worked on Saturday. So we literally shopped till we went home to my apartment and then dropped on the couch.
How was your weekend? What did ya do?
