We snuggled in the bed with the Yorkie for a bit, catching up on her day and my plans for the rest of mine, which mostly included a small bite to eat to tide me over until dinner. With the wife and pup chilling, I got dressed and headed out to secure some coffee at the Starbucks across town and then debated the food options, nothing of which was sounding all that exciting. The Lincoln's gas gauge dinged about being close to empty, so I took a short detour to fill it up at the station that I normally use, then sprang for a carwash as well, just to get some of the road grime off of it after the recent rains. The black vehicle is going to be showing every single fucking speck of dust that gets on it, which may not be for the best, but I guess I'll just have to be much more pro-active about cleaning it than I was with the silver car.
I ended up grabbing a burrito that I ate in the car on the drive back to the house, then I was slightly dismayed to see that the carwash hadn't really done a lot for the vehicle, so I spent some time wiping it down to get the last of the dirt off of it, vowing to splurge for the full-on raging deluxe wash next time, having learned my lesson with the basic one - it doesn't really do a helluva lot.
|Go Go Godzilla!|
The wife and pup were napping when I got in, so I settled into the den to give a random film another look, settling on this year's Godzilla, which I really dug when we saw it in the theater and held up really well on the re-watch. The wife surfaced towards the end of the film and I suggested maybe picking up food and having dinner with the In-Laws if she could get them on the phone, so she went about that process of making phonecalls and I watched a couple episodes of The Simpsons re-running on FXX, then we placed an order for some take-out from the Outback steakhouse on the Loop. The wife offered to go get it, but I figured we could take the drive as a family, so we headed that way, leaving the Yorkie behind when she balked at the mention of 'car', as she is known to do.
|Best Abortion Humor Ever!|
The movie ended around 9:30, so I decided to try to squeeze in another television show, checking out last week's episode of Constantine, which seems to be living up to my expectations in that it's a lot like Supernatural, which is fine, but now feels as if they missed the boat by not doing this a decade ago with the character instead of fiddling around with stuff like the movie version that just kinda missed the mark overall.
I got the wife and pup tucked in, then published a post for the day and piddled around with the Interwebs and a final cocktail, then called it an early night so that I could read some more of the comic book nerd shit I've been hip-deep in recently, as the Spider-Man stuff has taken up a lot of my evening reading time. Oh well, it's fun, harmless stuff, who cares, right?
I'm out kids.
Be seeing you.
