I love and hate Saturdays. Hate: I tend to think of it like the etch-e-sketch of the seven day week: "Well, I didn't finish such and such this week, so I'll get to it on Saturday." Love: I tend to also think of it like the get-out-of-jail-free card of the seven day week: "Well, I didn't finish such and such this week and I don't plan to get to it on Saturday either, suck it Monday through Friday!"

How do you spend your Saturdays?

Today I wasted my day watching movies on Netflix....I meant to work on my roof....

I drove down to Shelbyville this morning and got to ride a snowmobile for the very first time. Hung out with some buddies down there and then headed back to Hillsboro for a UFC party tonight at a neighbors' house (it's the big GSP vs. BJ Penn fight).

I did get a chance to stop at a couple of Wal-Marts today on my drive and picked up the Thrawn/Talon Karrde comic pack and a Resolute Cobra Commander.

Volunteered as an interview judge for the local Academic Decathlon this morning, did a bit of shopping this afternoon, and have done very little that I should have after that. Am looking forward to tomorrow's Big Game* thought.

I worked at Wal-Mart today. As an assembler, I built a few bikes, fixed a couple of endcaps, then built 6 office chairs, and chatted with a fellow assembler, seeing as today was my last day for possibly a month.

After work, I shopped for Valentines stuff for my wife, got me a pair of jeans, but we were sold out of the ink cartridges I needed for my printer. I have to print up plane tickets, and a to do list for my son while I am away.

Next I stopped and got my haircut, and beard trimmed. Afterwards, I drove to Staples in nearby Addison, only to find out they had no ink cartridges for my printer either, and they were closing/moving after the store closed this evening.

Next, I called up my son, and asked him if he wanted to go to dinner with me. My wife was working, so just my son and I went out for a beef at Portillos, they have the best beef ever. y son suggested a portillos right across the street from another Wal-Mart close to our house. After dinner, we ran to the Wal-Mart only to find they also had no ink cartridges for my printer. We were just a block away from an office depot, so I went there seeeking my ink cartridges, they had a limited selection of dell cartridges, and I found what I thought were the ones I needed, however when I returned home, I found that they were not, so I returned them unopened, and I was on my way.

I called a Wal-Mart in Addison, which told me they only had black ink, no color. I decided I would try another staples a town or so further down the road. As I was driving I found a different Wal-Mart, stopped, and found the cartrdges I was looking for. I also stopped at a Target after one of the regular collectors told me he got 2 of the BMF's for under $30 each. I didn't find not one. I got home shortly before 9 pm, and I still have a lot to get done before my flight tomorrow.

Normally, I sleep until early afternoon. That's because I work nights. I go in on Friday night and my shift ends on Saturday morning at 7AM. Then, I try to convert back to a "day" existence but shorting myself on sleep to be with the family who has a "normal" schedule. That way we spend time together for the rest of the weekend. I'm pretty a zombie for the rest of the day (Saturday) since I short myself of sleep. Sunday things are much better. As for the rest of Saturday, I just go with the flow since the family has made plans while I slept.

Finally did some laundry. Couldn't get it all done, so I did all the blacks first.
Deposited some cash in the bank.
Watched the latest BSG episode on the web.
Put on some freshly washed black clothes and played a gig at a club.
Posted some on SSG, now I'm going to crash, and probably wake up with a tiny hangover from drinking the free micro-brew I drank.

No I didn't meet a sweet thang to take home, but I had fun anyways...well it's Sunday now.

12AM-6AM: After having been up all day Friday (from about 8AM) I continue to stay up all Friday night/Saturday morning watching random movies/infomercials on TV so I won't miss Power Rangers at 6AM (I have no Alarm Clock, and even if I did I have no place put it as I have no bedroom).
6AM-7AM: Watched two episodes of Power Rangers. Technically today I had no direct reason to watch these episodes per say. They were "repeats" and I did tape them the first time they aired on ABC. Main reason I watched the repeats was to see if my local ABC affiliate was still having problems (the past two weeks they cut off the tail end of the second episode due to running over 7AM). I wanted to assess if I should be concerned when the new season starts up in March. No problem this week with the early cut off, so I'm hoping the problem was just due to the fact that both previous weeks aired the "season finale" (which was probably just a tad longer to tie up the loose ends of that season).
7AM-12PM: Watched the "CW4kids block" for some other shows I follow on Saturday (Spectacular Spider-Man, TMNT: Back to the Sewers, Kamen Rider Dragon Knight).
12PM-11PM: Slept in a series of micro naps (occasionally waking to answer the phone, get the mail, feed the cat, food, bathroom, etc.)
11PM-12AM: Waited (flipping through TV channels) until I could get on the PC so I could surf the net.

Woke up at 3:35am, showered, dressed, got to work a little after 4. Worked until noon, no break, rather leave the hour earlier. Got home, popped in some Smallville, started to drift a sleep so I paused it. Woke up an hour later and resumed the episode. Surfed the net a little bit, cleaned up the apartment for company coming today. Had some leftover pasta for dinner, watched a couple more episodes of Smallville, went to be around 9:20.

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt.
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
Then I washed my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.




On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.:cry:

Oh wait, today is SUPERBOWL Sunday! YEAH!!!!:D

Went to WM but only found three new figures and a comic pack. Disappointed with the clearance sales. Filled up the gas tank and picked up a couple DVDs I had on hold at the library (Dark Knight & Hellboy II).

Then I came home, ate a sandwich made from leftover chicken breast and got online to surf. Then I watched four movies I recorded on the DVR in the last week.

Still a lot of snow on the ground here though primary roads were clear Saturday. Secondary roads are still bad. So I'm pretty much stuck inside and I try to avoid a lot of unnecessary travel.

Interesting thread idea.

Let's see, I'm home this weekend. Yesterday I worked on setting up my Star Wars display (it's an extremely slow-going process). I finally have the ROTJ shelf done, even though I do still need to get wire and tape for the Ewok hang glider and logs to smash into the AT-ST. I talked a while with a friend and got my sister to get us tickets for Modest Mouse, who's coming to my campus later this month. My parents went to the public funeral for a guy who was well-known in the city (not a real close friend, but somebody known by all), but I didn't feel like going. I later watched Citizen Kane with my parents since they wanted to see it and then SNL which wasn't all that amazing this week.
