spent the afternoon playing sims 3. I have made some progress, Yasmir and Maxfield are now engaged.
I went to my parents' house for dinner and father's day activities, since they are having my cousin-uncle and his wife over for dinner tomorrow. we got him an old Price Is Right board game from the 1970s and an mp3 player for all his music. unfortunately, the mp3 player does not have the built-in speaker we thought it did (we wanted the Zen Mosaic, not the Zen Mosaic LX), so we're gonna have to send it back and get a new one.
dinner was (amazing) homemade hamburgers, grilled veggies, and slices of pineapple, honeydew, and cantaloupe. I tried some honeydew, to see if my allergy to it had suddenly gone away, but it has not. dessert was long johns, which are apparently a type of doughnut as well as underwear.
we watched Taken, which was really good. it was so intense, I was having chest pains. the very end was a little weird, but I won't ruin it for those who haven't seen it.
now I am back home, alone. Chris is out at SteveMikeBobby's playing magic. I could have gone along, but I would rather sleep in my bed than on their sofa. I am standing by my resolution that there is no reason for me to even bother going along when M:tG is the only planned activity. that sounded angry, but I really am not. they are free to do whatever they like, so long as I don't have to sit there and be bored.
all in all, it has been a pretty good day. I hope the weather holds out for tomorrow. keep your fingers crossed!
