Listening to WBER On-Line

There's quite the eclectic mix of holiday music on WBER tonight. A Beth Orton song just played and I'm not sure if it was a new song or a holiday song. Either way, it made me think about how lucky I am to be able to spend the holiday with my family this year. I'll be going in to Buffalo after work on Monday and then I have the next 2 days after that off. Nice. But back to WBER, I decided to listen after talking to a friend who was going over to a mutual friend's house to hang out. I told him to have a drink for me since my Saturday night looked like it was going to be dull. I would have liked to spend time with friends, but I'm not sure anyone is around. We did call Troy and Melissa, but I think they're feeling under the weather (according the message on our ansa-phone). So Matt is downstairs, watching tv and playing with my drum thing that looks like it came straight out of Karate Kid 2. Yeah, you know what kind of drum I'm talking about.

One Awesome Movie

Ok, sure.. I was all hyped up about the Harry Potter movie, but it really can't touch The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This movie kicks ass! I can't begin to tell you how awesome this movie is! I haven't read the books, but I didn't have any trouble following it. Matt says the graphics/effects/scenery are straight out of the illustrations that Tolkien did. Now, understanding that I haven't read the books.. you can guess I was a little surprise when the movie just ended. It leaves off just like the first book does. I had it in my head that Frodo and Sam would somehow get the ring back in the fire. I'm not giving away anything here I hope. But if you haven't seen this movie, you must! I'm envisioning the day when all three movies are available as a DVD box set. *drools* Now I just need to get a DVD player.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
