Finally finished reading all 5 of the Game of Thrones books, definitely recommended.
Glad to see some new faces and all of the WH family out and about today! Hope everyone has some great weekend plans... And can enjoy a few days off!
In the middle of book 5 of Thrones. concur with your opinion.

Happy TGIF to my MF friends.

Hoping to catch the 11am showing of IM3 in 3D and I would still have time to make it to work.

3D? We're lucky to get those new fangled "talkies" where I live.

Speaking of that, be sure to watch the Lone Ranger when it comes out this summer. It was filmed in my back yard.

It's a flat screen, not curved like others (the one at Air and Space Museum is, we saw a film about the Int'l Space Station that was insane there).
Find out for me when you go. If you ever get the chance to see 15/70... DO IT!!

This is one of our other mega theaters that has an IMAX. It's not quite as big, but still great:
IMAX® | Regal Cinemas
We've seen Avengers and Prometheus there. Sound quality is solid too! (prices are quite wallet busting though )

That's interesting, Capt'n... The Hannah Montana Movie waterfall scene was shot about 3 miles from our house at Rutledge Falls. So for awhile there we were celebrities among all the tweens in the family

My brother works at a Theater, I'll ask him how the crowd was during the release. I bet it was big, because we are in the city. I never seen Iron Man 2, or 3, just the first one. I don't know when I'll get around to seeing the third one, or even the second.

The second has a handful of good scenes but doesn't hold a candle to the first. Still haven't seen the third.

I'm supposed to go see IM3 tomorrow with friends, but if it falls through I'm going to see it in IMAX 3D. I saw Prometheus, The Hobbit, Spider Man and Oblivion at that theater, it's awesome.

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without alcohol,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs.....

Got my daughter switched to a new-for-her phone tonight. She has now become a Nexian. I'm going to unlock it tonight so that it's done and I can take off the bloat.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!

I think I meant Nexican (I was celebrating Cindo de Mayo and shouldn't have tried typing yet! )

Thank you for the offer!! I just finished up and she is now all set.

Glad you got the phone all sorted. You are becoming somewhat of an expert there, eh?

Okay, Nexican...I thought I was wrong for like 1.5 years!

No more Corona's for you...

Only an expert at following someone else's instructions.....and even that can be questionable depending on my mood. Lol.

It was Blue Moon with a shot of Chambord. Quite tasty too.

Morning kids! In my quest to find out what I'd like to do when I grow up I signed up for a 40 hour certification course to learn the art of bartending. The thought of sitting in an office again makes me twitchy. I just have to find the best time for me to actually take the classes now. I have 90 days to take the class at the price I got it for....I love that it was 65% off thanks to Groupon !!

Dang it! Clouds and rain tonight.

If you have clear, reasonably dark skies between 9 and midnight tonight, you can watch the Aquarids meteor shower... I do hate missing a good meteor shower...

Well, today started off just wonderful. Got soap in my eyes in the shower and it still burns. That was 2 hours ago! Couldn't wear my contacts because of it so I'm in glasses today. I hate wearing glasses.

I went to the eye doctor last Monday and got a fitment for contacts. I have an astigmatism in my right eye, but they wanted me to try regular contacts. Same thing happened last time I tried contacts (3 years ago) and it turned me off to them entirely. I'm going back in this morning though to get fitted for a toric lens instead of just giving up, because I would love to be able to wear cheap sunglasses this summer!

Got my wheels finally on this weekend except got home last night and one lost the bead so now I have a flat rear tire - need to get a spare on and have it checked out by a friend. Just a little hiccup, but just gotta move on. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.

Well the toric lens fixed my astigmatism, but they gave me a different brand of contact, and this time my eyes were bloodshot and felt like sandpaper like 4 hours later. Will let my eyes heal and try again in a couple days, but not really optimistic, might be sticking with glasses.

I know this pain ... when I tried them I pretty much ran out of the office I could not stand looking at my finger going into my eye ... freaked me out to the point where I just keep my glasses when I need them

Good luck with the lenses. I've been wearing mine for like two or maybe three years? I forget that I need glasses for reading!

When I first started wearing contacts, it would take me over 30 minutes each time to put them in because I couldn't stand putting my finger in my eye. It didn't take long to get over it. I can't wear them anymore because they dry my eyes out too much...
