So that trip to Fry's the other day? It led to a terrible thing. Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga was purchased. This, of course, meant that we had to play Lego Star Wars. And this meant that hour simply disappeared.
As if that was not bad enough, I also found myself saying, “Hey, what is Little Big Planet really like?” And then a terrible amount of downloadable levels were played. I will have you know that the Street Fighter Two levels? Superb. Absolutely wonderfully detailed.
And then it was seven o'clock.
The two friends that I had met over different days combined forces and we became a group of four heading out for good Italian food, and then over to the movie theatre. And what movie were we headed to watch? Hot Tub Time Machine, of course.
I didn't think I'd say this – but it was a super good movie. It doesn't take itself all that serious and it was a lot of fun. Alright – no I feel slightly dirty. What did I do today? I played video games, and I watched a terrible (read: delightful) movie. And that was just about all – except for when I caught up on my watching of LOST to get myself to the current episode.
So, not really doing all that much in Silicon Valley, but I can tell you it's everything I'd want to do. I do not need to always see the sights. I am more than content to hang out with good people and do regular every day things. It's a good life, and here's to good people.
Yup – that's all. After the movie more games ensued, and we cleared Lego Star Wars to the end of Episode IV. Big exciting day, and tomorrow? I'm expecting more the same.
