Much busier than a usual weekend.monstersocks
and I went over to jimbexleyspeed
's place for grilling and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
extended edition. The added scenes didn't really seem necessary but the movie was still very good. We would have shown up for the festivities earlier but it took several stops to find some Almond Syrup (Orgeat) for our host's Mai Tais
. None of the liquor stores we tried had even heard of it but we finally found Almond Syrup at Byerly's. If only we'd had time to look online
On Saturday monstersocks
and I got together and did a little baking for some of the events later in the weekend and watched some Colonial House
. We made some M&M peanut butter cookies
with Ogre-sized M&Ms. The cookies were (in my opinion) very good.
On Sunday we had a standard family dinner with monstersocks
' family at OCB then stopped by her brother-in-law's Soft Drink Party and tried some interesting drinks (including pineapple and coconut soft drinks which mixed into a nice piña colada). After that we headed over to ladyslaughter
's cook-out (I hope I remembered the right alias there). That was pretty fun and the cookies seemed well received.
On Monday we went to our friend Brian's cookout. That was fun (if a little damp).
I also picked up a wireless controller for my PS2
and a wireless controller for my xbox
. Fewer wires = less clutter.
I love my iPod
but I really wish it had more capacity. I'm constantly having to deleted songs whenever I wanted to add new music. Happily 60GB iPods may be coming soon.
(A black one would be even better
