I am on a Speed Racer high. I watched 4 episodes this weekend. What a great show. I bought the DVD expecting to have to watch it by myself or maybe just with Stephanie. But much to my surprise, Randy wanted to see what the big deal was and watched it with me. His assessment, "It's corny and stupid, but just good enough that you can't stop watching." Yeah, that's about right. I laughed myself silly at the animation and all the corniness but was totally enthralled by the action and suspense. Randy and I had a blast watching it together. I'm relieved to find that he kind of enjoyed it too and that he doesn't think I'm a total loser for loving this show. Speed Racer kicks ASS!!!
I had a good weekend. Friday night, Randy and I hung around the house. Then Saturday, we took my Mom to lunch at Moe's Place - my favorite diner - then did some shopping at Lowe's and Wal-mart. We had a lot of fun. I picked out some paint samples and we bought some flowers for one of our flower beds. After all our shopping, we took Mom home. Randy and I planted our flowers then got ready for the evening. Randy went to the ZZ Top & Ted Nugent concert. I'm just not into that 70's rock so Randy had to go without me. While he and his cousin were at the concert. Stephanie and I went to Mom and Dad's for dinner. Dad cooked some bad ass ribs out on the grill. They were great. Then after dinner, we all went to see a movie. I couldn't believe that my Dad actually agreed to go to a movie. He goes to movies about once every 5 to 10 years. I was in shock the whole evening. We went to see "Anger Management" starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson. It was OK. It had a lot of funny stuff in it. But the end was really, really, stupid. The last 10 minutes of the movie totally ruined it for me. I was pretty disappointed, especially since I paid 8 bucks to see it. It's much more suitable for rental. Definitely not worth 8 bucks. Still we had a good time and it was cool that Mom and Dad got out of the house.
After the movie, Stephanie and I went to my house to watch Speed Racer. But we only got about 10 minutes into it before Randy and some friends came in. We all hung out for a while then everyone headed home.
Sunday Randy and I went to my Grandmother's house for lunch. Then we went to a friend's house to work on Randy's boat. We are putting in a whole new interior. Oh I don't know what I'm doing saing "we". Randy and a couple of friends are doing all of the work. I help when I can, but mostly I just watch and fetch beer and tools. We are hoping to have the boat ready for Memorial Day weekend. It's going to be close, but I think it will be ready. On Sunday, we got several pieces put back in and installed the new seats. It's looking good. I can't wait to get out on the lake.
It was pretty warm out and I got some good sun on my arms. Afterwards, Randy and I went home, had a pizza, watched some Speed Racer and went to bed. It was an excellent weekend.
Guess that all I've got today. Happy Cinco de Mayo, everybody. I'm off to have a Margarita!
