Well, I did something stupid. The laptop came with a $250 mail-in rebate. But to utilize that you need the UPC barcode that was on the box. And that is at the local landfill since I sat it out with the trash on Friday. Sweety is really pleased. I think a quote from him would be "You know what? You do some really boneheaded things sometimes." I guess I do. It makes my stomach hurt to think about it so I won't.
We really rang in the New Year in a big way! We went out to eat and had the worst dining experience EVER. My food was burnt and the waitress was as useless as tits on a boar hog. I've never been anywhere where they really burnt my stuff. But it was crowded and we were pissed and didn't bother to complain. We'd went to a bar before eating (while waiting for a table at the restaurant) and I gave the girl at the bar who brought me potato chips a better tip than the restaurant waitress got. After dinner we were both grouchy and tipsy so we just came on home instead of going back to the bar. I was in bed by 11:00. I think this is the first New Year's Eve in 12 or 13 years that I haven't had a good luck kiss at midnight. Oh shit, and today is when I realized that I threw out the laptop box. Surely this is not a sign of what 2006 has in store for me.
The boys and I watched March of the Penguins tonight. I loved it! My favorite part was the penguin fuck scene. I do find birds mating interesting. And I really hated seeing some of the baby birdies freeze because of their parent's negligence. I'll fast forward through those parts the next time I watch it.
