Entry: Another weekend

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. :)

Did the mother offer the food up or did you just take it out of the fridge? If it was offered, you are not freeloading. I find myself in that situation constantly. Mother's are like the Godfather, they make you an offer you can't refuse. Apparently, it's very rude if you constantly refuse their hospitality.

Your home and your mother's home are the same place. Just because you setup housekeeping in a different local doesn't mean you lose your grazing rights. After all, don't you still have a key to the front door!
