The Things We Do For Our Kids [Feb. 23rd, 2009|03:08 pm]

I've spent the day in line for a special screening of The Watchmen at the Alamo Drafthouse South. I got here at about noon, and the show starts at 7.

But this film is all G has talked about for a year. Well...there was The Dark Knight and The Spirit, but this one is really really big. So when he called me from school at about 8 this morning I hunted down the details and did what was required (made a myspace page). I feel a bit guilty about taking a spot that a Watchmen fan would kill for, but it's not the kind of film I want to let G go to alone. So here I am.

Fortunately the alamo has WiFi and, after a somewhat failed attempt to fix the power supply for the Mac , I broke down and bought an OEM power supply at Fry's yesterday. So I could watch the stock market's freefall while I waited in line.

The people here are nice and we have interests and people in common, so it's been a fun afternoon.

I hope the show is worth it to both of you.

I've been watching birds out the window as I attempted to work on three things at once. The birds are more interesting.

The movie was much better than I expected and G really liked it.

The birds here have been much less shy than normal, so I've seen a few really close up. We've started a bunch of veggies in pots, so when I take breaks I go outside and mess with them and move them around so they all get good sunlight. When I'm out there, the birds like to sit on nearby bushes and make noises at me.

Spring is so much fun.
