Yesterday I had my a real live day off. I got to sleep in until ten. I stayed in my underwear for hours. Later in the day, my mom and I went to a movie.
We saw Lone Survivor. I highly suggest that everyone goes to see it. I know that it was a bit of a controversial thing because it was accused of being "war propaganda". But all it really was, was a story about a mission gone wrong. One that you don't have to know all about the military to understand. It was about camaraderie, it was about pride, and it was about a love for something bigger than yourself on the American side and the Middle Eastern side. It is rated R because it is violent and the dreaded F word is used a bit. Really, I think that it's sad that reality has to be rated R, but it is what it is.
After the movie, my momma dropped me off at the gym. I ran one mile then sneezed for like literally 30 minutes. What the heck? Why? I don't even know. For some reason, running has been triggering my sneezy-flex and it sucks.
After the gym, ma boy took me to get some Cafe Rio and gave me a wonderful gift. A DVD player! I upgraded from VHS. I can now watch more movies than just Star Wars and Mulan. Not that there is anything wrong with either of those, but it's nice to have some options...It was a good gift. This guy is pretty okay I guess.
Overall it was a pretty nice day off. I need to start taking pictures of my little adventures so I actually have something to illustrate my bloggy with...
I'm off for now.
