Let it snow...
Hey.. the civic hit 200,000 miles!
Wow - what a weekend. I wrote up the below on Saturday night, then woke up about 3 a.m. on the couch - I must have been tired. I never made it past putting links in this post. Now its Sunday evening, and I'm finally getting back around to it.. so here goes:
We didn't have much to do Saturday, so we drove to Dundee and hit up the fairly new Lonestar restaurant. For some reason, I was expecting something really good. What I got, was the same thing I could have had at Applebees, Ruby Tuesdays.. etc. It's just another one of those chain fast food sit down places. The girl at the bar did let me flip around for Hockey Night in Canada, which - they had Direct TV, and they didn't even get the Canadian station. So much for ever getting Direct TV.
They forgot to charge me for one of my 3 - 21oz Labatts. They didn't forget about the $4.50 Sam Adams bottle. I had the ribs (nothing compared to KCMO's), and jen had some shrimp noodle thing. The atmosphere was nice, we sat up at the bar and chilled. I kept thinking I was at Applebees the whole time.
I've been feeling funny the past couple days.. like a cold or flu wants to take over my body, but I'm fighting it. It's been working.. but everyday around 5pm, my head starts feeling really light.
Last night we rented the Longest Yard (sandler), and Kicking and Screaming. Will Farell rules - his movie was great. The Longest Yard sucked really bad. It was as predictable as the rest of his movies. Awful acting, awful plot, awful everything.
Gas on Monroe St. earlier today was like $2.11. We just drove by it, it's at $1.91. Crazy it went down that much in a matter of hours.
Here are some links for your viewing pleasures:
