Well, it's another Monday, and I have an interesting stash of geekery and what not to consider.

First, is my youngest son's apparent love of How to Train your Dragon. What happened, is that last week, I downloaded and installed the kid-friendly browser KidZui, and launched it for him. Well, they were featuring that particular movie on their home page with trailers and backgrounds and what not. So, of course he watched the trailer, and then managed to snag a happy meal toy, and is now thus inspired in his desire to see said movie.

Additionally, I'll note that I failed to perform any work on the boys' tree house this weekend, mainly because I was in the woods with the Cub Scouts. Which went incredibly well, despite my wife's intense dislike of me allowing our eldest to explore said woods with only other scouts to guide/help him.

Sunday morning, we braved the horrid weather to walk to the lake and attempt to fish. Which was something of a fail. The wind was too strong, and it was making it nearly impossible for the eldest to cast his line out, and even I was having trouble keeping it in a straight line.

Sadly, the only bite of the day was a small (~7-8 inches) spotted bass (the picture is not the one I landed). Since prior to today, I thought that a spotted bass had to be more than 12 inches long in order to be kept, we released it back into the lake.

Anyways, after fighting the wind for a bit longer, we then hiked back to the campsite, got into the truck and came on home.

Also, last Thursday was my Beloved Wife's birthday, which I did manage to make mention of on this site, but we celebrated by visiting a hibachi joint rather close by. Which served a decent BBQ eel roll, but sadly, the sushi was not quite as good as Osaka's or Nagoya's sushi offerings.

And really, that's all the exciting that happened over the week for me. Especially when one considers that last week was something of a bust, since I was down with a stomach bug smacked dab in the middle of it. Well, here's to hoping that "The Passing" DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 gets released soon. I'm excited about a new campaign in which to slaughter thousands of zombies within.

Even sadder, is that the Spring anime season doesn't seem like it's going to have anything good to watch. So far, these are the only ones that really caught my attention:

  • Angel Beats - after life fighting between groups of "angels"
  • Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou - future "Devil King" has to fight to live
  • Arakawa under the Bridge - man meets homeless girl, moves under a bridge with her
  • Mayoi Neko Overun! - it's primary setting is a candy store called "Stray Cats" I have to see at least one episode
Well, I guess 4 series isn't that bad, but when one considers that there are 34 new series starting up this spring, then one understands why I think it's not a lot.

Oh well, here's to this upcoming week!
