Happy birthday Katie!!
Another weekend come and gone. I know that you're insanely curious so I'll go ahead and tell you what I did.
Saturday, I headed out for Columbia to visit a friend. On the way, I stopped by my mom's place and spent about an hour with her. Speaking of which...I'm starting to wonder if she thinks that I'm a freeloader or not. There seems to be this trend where I'll show up, eat all of her food, and then leave. Does that seem like freeloading to you?? :)
Got to Columbia. The drive was uneventful. Ended up going to the State Museum. That was kinda cool. I particularly liked the giant Megalodon model. Of course, it's labeled as a "Giant Great White Shark" (or something along those lines). On a side note....if I was an archaeologist or ichthyologist (or whatever), that shark would probably be my life's work. Either that or giant squid. I don't know why, but there's a little cryptozoologist that lives inside my head and I think that those persuits would easily satisfy him. :) We then headed back to the house and watched a couple of movies. Nicole Kidman's 'The Others' never fails to entertain. However, there were mixed reviews on 'The Rules of Attraction'. Not everyone liked that movie. I can't possibly see why! :)
The next morning, we ended up satisfying my IHOP urge and then going to the state capital building to walk around. That building has a lot of exhibits around it. It's pretty neat. Of course, they also have a little memorial for the guy who started the field of gynecology. (I really wonder what would have to be done for the field to be considered "started").
I drove home, did tons of laundry, and then caught up on my 'Mythbusters' and 'Ghost Hunters' episodes. Of course, that was after my 5 hour nap though. I then went to sleep, woke up this morning, and started yet another wonderful day in paradise. :)
