It's Friday!

I apologize for the marked lack of blog posts this week; I've been under the weather all week and, well, just plain tired.

Oh, and I have this shiny new video game ...

Anyway, I'm alive and well (sort of) and while I got very little actual work done, my Cubs are 6-3 in the young season in MLB 2010: The Show. That goes to prove that video games can be far more satisfying than real life.

I intend to get back to revising big-time on Monday, although the next couple of weeks will be short ones, since I will be covering the Illinois state boys basketball tournament the next two weekends (Fridays and Saturdays all day/evening) for the Associated Press. Hey, I gotta pay for that video game somehow!

We're also getting back to the Friday Family Movie Night this evening with a screening of An American Werewolf in London. I haven't seen it in years, so it will be like watching it for the first time. I only hope it doesn't frighten the 12-year-old too much. He's getting a little large to fit into our bed! (Just kidding, son. Seriously).

AAWL wasn't my first choice. That would be Night of the Comet, one of my favorite cheesy 80s flicks. But our local video store doesn't stock it, so I guess I'll order it online. In my mind, there are few better things in life than a couple of Valley Girls out to save humanity. Know what I mean?

So, there's my post for the day. Now I'm off to play some digital baseball. I'll be back Sunday for a more in-depth post. So consider yourself warned.


  1. Glad you're feeling better.

    I don't think I've ever seen AWWL all the way through. I always hear about it, so maybe someday I will... or maybe not. =)

  2. I've not seen AWWL, but I have seen An American Werewolf in Paris and thought it was hilarious.

  3. I haven't watched American Werewolf in years, I'll have to put it in my Netflix queue, I can't remember how it ends. I'm looking forward to Sunday's in-depth post.
