The Halftime Report

So, this Thanksgiving weekend has been pretty cool, so far. On Thursday, there was consumption of too much food, of course. It was all quite yummy. I don’t think I overdid it, but it pretty much consisted of having two plates, dividing all of the sides amongst each of them and a smattering of turkey. It was fried turkey, which has a very distinct flavor. Whereas baked turkey has sort of a flat flavor all by itself (gravy, gravy, gravy), fried turkey has a lot of taste locked into it; no gravy necessary, unless you really love gravy.

Yesterday, we helped my bro move out of his old digs. We didn’t move everything out, since he wants to give some of his old stuff to Goodwill and eventually replace all of it with brand new stuff. It wasn’t so bad, though. It only took a couple of hours to do. It was a whirlwind trip to Atlanta. We left at 6:30 in the morning and got back at 7:30 in the eve.

Ruthie is up in Nashville with her folks–they decided to spend Thanksgiving in the Opryland Hotel. I’ve been there a couple of times for eats, and have flown over it a couple of times in a plane, but have never had the pleasure of staying there. It seems to me a lot like the Grand Floridian–something of that caliber hotel. Anyhoo, I’m watching the pug while she’s away, and he’s been a pretty good guest.

I’ve been playing Fallout 3 a bunch of-late. Roaming the Capital Wasteland is actually pretty awesome. It reminds me of any post-apocalyptic novel or movie I’ve experienced. Irradiated zombies of what used to be people tend to try to kick my arse, there are super mutants, mutated wild dogs, and then just “normal” people who scavenge the Wasteland. It’s a pretty great plot, so far. If you’re into RPGs, I would highly suggest it. It’s not like the first two, which were more like turn-based Diablo, but more real-time and a lot like Oblivion. One day, when I do finish it, I’ll have to get back to Gears of War 2 🙂

PC LAN today. w00t! We’re playing the classics: Half-Life, Quake, even some Battlefield 1942–crazy to think that’s a “classic” now. lol.

Anyhoo, I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Don’t have too many leftovers 😉
