A little adventure

With our son back at day care, my wife and I thought we’d see a movie—something we don’t get to do very often these days. And being Cheap Tuesday meant we could buy tickets without needing to see a bank manager.

So after getting our new front door installed (which has so many locks we now refer to our house as NORAD), we headed off to the local shopping centre. Unfortunately everyone else in Brisbane had the same idea and the only seats available were in the first few rows, so we passed. (“The candy bar is now open, where you can buy popcorn, choc tops and Panadol.”)

So instead we spent a lazy day at home. My wife caught up on some television (which translates to freeing up some space of our DVR), and I got to enjoy my latest indulgence—“Runaway: A Twist of Fate”.

Yeah, I know. Here I am complaining I don’t have enough time, and then I turn around and buy a game that’s guaranteed to suck every last second of it. But good adventure games are few and far between these days, and so when one comes out I make a little time for myself to enjoy it. (If it makes you feel better I also read another 50 or so pages of “The Stand”, so I did accomplish something vaguely writing-related.)

And that was pretty much the day. Not very exciting, I know, but certainly enjoyable. And isn’t that what holidays are all about?

    One might suggest that writing a blog entry is a writing-related achievement.

      *slaps forehead*

      You’re right. Jen. It’s actually one of the reasons started blogging in the first place–so I’d be writing every day. How did I miss that?
