Well, I didn't do any turkey day posting. On the other hand, every time I tried to get the computer to connect to the internet, it refused.

I had a good weekend. It all started with a nice drive up on Wednesday: Evan and I left at 2:00, arrived around 5:00. I needed to sell some books and CD's and computer games. I was able to sell only some of the books (the used bookstore I frequent didn't need any more copies of Hannibal or Treason, that one Ann Coulter book), all the CD's I had on me, and none of the video games. Apparently, both EB Games and GameStop no longer buy used computer games. Well fie on them. I did sell my copy of UT2004 DVD Editors' Edition to my cousin, so it wasn't a total loss.

Then Evan and I had a Harry Potter movie marathon: 4 movies three days. I think he enjoyed them well enough. I enjoyed the newest one myself, although I am still undecided as to whether the 3rd or 4th is better. I recommend seeing the 4th if you enjoyed the others. Watching the first Harry Potter again reminded me of how poorly it was made and how well Peter Jackson adapted Fellowship of the Ring. Harry Potter 1 had brief sparkling moments and a plot which felt tacked on. There was too much information crammed into too few scenes. But who wants to read a review of a five year old movie? I don't.

I also went to the state High School Cross Country Meet. It was a good time. Maybe tomorrow I will post pictures of the meet and also ones I took while hanging around Fresno with Evan and my dad. By the by, check out the latest Homestar Runner cartoon.

Now, It is my intention to sit down and play video games for several hours.
I mean read the Summa for about an hour.

Still alive

It has been far too long since my last post (judging by the number of comments I have received at meals from friends). Well, now my paper is done, so I have more free time. I can't wait for Thanksgiving. I will probably do some blogging over the break, so if you care enough to read this blog, you won't be disappointed.
