The MacBook: The Desolation of Smaug

Sorry this is late. As luck and fate have it, my computer died a sad death this weekend, so I’m writing this at work over my lunch break. I actually had a great weekend that included movies and Christmas lights and Disney apps on the iPad.

We were headed to get our super expensive cat food Saturday morning all the way down near where we used to live. Lyra & Pudge are on prescription food, so we go down to our old vet to pick it up. Sean wanted to see the new Hobbit movie and the nearest theater that was showing it is down that way too, so we made the spur-of-the-moment decision to see the Saturday morning early showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.


We didn’t get out of that until about 12:30 (3 hours!). So we headed home for lunch and a nap. It’s weekends like these that make me so grateful I don’t have kids. We can just do what we want when we want to do it.

After dinner later that night, Sean and I bundled up (read: wore our pajamas) and got in the car to scope out Christmas lights in nearby neighborhoods. We saw some pretty awesome houses along the way. We knew the lights would be good in the neighborhoods that were selling houses “in the LOW $600s!” Yeeps.

Sunday, we discovered the Disney Frozen Free Fall app. I guess it’s like Bejeweled or Candy Crush. Anyway, we spent a lot of time in our pajamas, on our iPads, on the couch trying to beat each other to the next levels. We also discovered that, when you run out of lives, if you just delete and then re-download the app, you will magically get 5 more lives and still be on the same level. I’m sure we spiked the Frozen app download statistics yesterday… “Oh my gosh, we’ve been downloaded 500 times more today and all in Woodstock, Georgia!”

We turned on the Tv every once and a while to check on the Failcons who managed to NOT lose to the Washington Redskins. Though, I can’t say it’s that much of a victory considering they had the same record as we did before the game.

Oh, the state of professional football these days…

Monday morning involved a lot of snatches at the gym. I’ve apparently been doing them wrong the whole time, though I’m not surprised. We had a substitute coach who helped me a lot (it also helped that there were barely any people there — more attention for meeee!), and I know what I need to practice now. I think. Maybe?

Tonight is my company’s Christmas party, so Sean is making the trek to Kennesaw from his work in Sandy Springs to join me. I don’t know if I can make it that long, though. I’m already tired on this Monday.
