Last Thursday we went to the Batman marathon at a theater in the southwest corner of town. There were only about 20 of us in the arena-style room, and no little ones. They gave us free small popcorn vouchers, too. I stayed awake for the first two movies, and only slept during Bane’s takeover of Gotham in the third. I like Batman, so I enjoyed my evening very much. Though, I think Vinnie is right, a bit too much Bruce Wayne and not enough Batman. But we had junk food and a fun night out.

Had a quiet couple of days and then went to see my brother’s family and new house. They found a really nice place. Kids all get their own rooms, and a basement to play in. The got me a cake, with candles and singing and everything. It was very sweet. We played an Angry Birds card and dice game and a round of Uno with plastic cards. A nice afternoon with family.

Spent time with friends the last couple days, hanging out, having fun. Gaming on my birthday was a lot of fun, cured the Roman Empire and then took power away from the senate. This coming weekend is now the Cedar Point trip, that will be a blast. Still trying to figure out when King’s Island can happen.

It’s been a good week of birthday celebrations. I am well loved.

Work, Eat, Sleep July 19, 2012

Since we got back fromĀ  Boise, it feels like I haven’t done much but work, eat and sleep. Thirty hour weeks take some getting used to after months of twelve-fifteen hour weeks. I have done other things, hung out with friends, but the big events are yet to come.

Three birthdays over the next six days. Happy Birthday! The Ohio State Fair next weekend. Cedar Point the weekend after. Then three more birthdays, which involve two family trips. Possibly a King’s Island trip in there somewhere, too. And rounding out the summer at WorldCon, come ChiCon as it’s in Chicago this year.

Tonight, Rich is taking me to a Batman marathon to watch the Dark Knight trilogy all in a row. His birthday gift to me. The difficulty – me staying awake for all nine hours, in a dark room, and vaguely comfortable seat. There will be Icees and probably chocolate.

Sunday is a trip to see my brother’s new house, and play some Munchkin. He’s a bit further away now and trying to get the hang of being a house-husband. I imagine he’s looking forward to the oldest heading to school in a few weeks.

Trying to eat better, as always. Sticks & Twigs pretzels, however, are nothing like pretzels and not even as substantial as the name would suggest. Shelled pumpkin seeds, on the other hand, are far more pleasant to eat. Spring mix and spinach are tasting a bit bitter, need to get more alkalized, but wheatgrass is just not convenient in my schedule these days.
