Well, the eldest offspring and I went on a Cub-Scout camping trip. In the middle of the country.
In what was effectively 40 degree weather.
That felt like 20.
All in all, despite the fact that it was evilly cold, the eldest had quite a good time. In fact, he absolutely adored it. He spent hours running around with his pack mates, shot an bow and arrow and a BB rifle.
Sadly, the youngest apparently spent the entire time me an the elder were gone hunting around the house for me and the eldest child.
Well, after the campout ended, me and the eldest spent a bit of time fishing (read: losing lures on rocks/limbs/etc)—so of course the boy was interested in fish and what not.
On the way home from dinner my eldest once again asked what happened to his goldfish on the move from Pensacola to the frozen wastes of Mississippi. This is a question that's been brought up a few dozen times over the past two years, and the Beloved Wife soundly informed him that we had already answered said question and he knew what had been done with the thing.
To which he instantly responded "So, we ate it?"
How could we not laugh about such.
Anyways, what with my weekend involving woods, mud, and cold weather as opposed to the more traditional cartoons, geekery and the internets, I didn't spend a lot of time thinking/doing/watching GEEK stuff. BUT on Sunday night me and the Beloved Wife did watch The Haunting of Sorority Row. A perfectly amusing Lifetime "horror" movie.
Which of course is keyword for a standard Lifetime movie plot plus ghosts. It's the type of thing which makes one long for Mansquito.
Anyways, expect to see my review for 11Eyes episode 2 sometime soon, as well as me getting the new Star Wars novel Death Troopers.
Well, that's enough for this week, for now, it's time to get to work…
