Well, that was a busy weekend. My dad's 60th birthday was on Sunday, so someones in the family decided that it was a fine time for a birthday party.
A couple of pertinent facts here:
- I hate traveling.
- I live 5 hours away from my family
- Did I mention that "hate traveling" bit?
That said, it was a fun-filled, geek weekend. To start, as my Beloved Wife was driving down to Pensacola on Friday night, we were behind a tanker trailer for the better part of an hour. Now, normally, this wouldn't be that much of an issue, but due to the exact distance that my wife was pacing said trailer at, and the fact that it was night, the circle of the tanker was lit up.
So, after a while--and utterly out of the blue--my Beloved Wife said, "You know, that looks like a Stargate."
I glanced out the window, and realize that yes, it does kind of look like a stargate. Which is when two things hit me:
- My wife made a geek reference
- My wife made said geek reference before me
Oh, I do so love my Beloved Wife, especially as she becomes more and more... well, geek-i-fied.
So, the birthday party went off without a hitch. We were able to surprise my dad without giving him a heart attack, so good times right there, and I spend most of Saturday morning with my elder brother, his kid and my kids, in which we had a grand discussion on anime.
And my Beloved Wife, as you're reading this, I'll have you note that HIS wife watches some of the anime with him.
Ah well, such was my time spent this weekend, and now I must go forth and toil in the exciting world of software engineering....
