We are now another weekend closer to the holidays. On the good news side, gas continues to drop, but groceries still haven’t come down. I spent part of the weekend reading Children of the Jedi and watching DVDs. Saturday, we went out for a little shopping (Best Buy, Target, Gamestop, Stater Bros.) and picked up a free DVD rental from Blockbuster. We came home with munchies, the two Hellboy movies, and Jumper as our free rental. Saturday night we watched the first Hellboy and then Jumper. Hayden Christiansen (aka Anikan Skywalker) is one stiff actor (not much depth to his acting). Sunday, we went over to an old co-workers house for our annual NFL get together. Her Steelers beat my Chargers in an abismal game. We played some pool and hung around until the 2nd quarter of the Dallas-Washington game before heading home. Our tv was non-stop fire coverage all weekend as SoCal had its annual fires. Fortunately, we were not inundated with smoke like in previous years, but that could change as the winds shift.
