I was informed earlier that I’ve been neglecting my blog here lately, even though with all due respect I’ve technically been neglecting just about everything that I do online for the past several weeks. I’ve certainly been a little distracted from the online community recently, although not at all in a bad way, but I do think that I need to find a way to balance the two. It might involve my doing a little less online than I normally do, but we’ll just have to wait and see. I can’t honestly make that decision until I’m actually caught up…so maybe this week???

Anywho, last weekend in particular was pretty cool. I spent some time in Orlando, doing the whole tourist thing, which is actually pretty easy to do when the main mouse himself is right next door! We ended up spending a good portion of the afternoon experiencing the Festival of Masters at Downtown Disney, which was a lot of fun. It was the first time I’ve been on Disney property since I got here, so it was good to rekindle the magic, if you will! By far, the coolest place in the area is the Lego Imagination Station, which has officially surfaced my passion for those little interlocking blocks from my childhood – let’s just say that I’ll be posting my new wishlist for Christmas here shortly…

That little visit was also a nice little opportunity to check out the inside of Pleasure Island without actually having to be subjected to all of the dancing within, so that was kind of nice! Didn’t get my gumbo at the House of Blues, but maybe next time. The rest of the evening was pretty much spent challenging the Wachowski bros to completely bore the hell out of me and I must say that they did exactly that with marvelous results! Ok, I won’t ruin it with spoilers for the rest of you who haven’t seen this debocile yet, primarily because I would first have to be able to identify the plot before I was able to spoil it, but let me just say this, kiddies – there are a lot of things in this world that $8 can buy you – a couple of drinks at your favorite bar, two or three boxes of Frosted Flakes, and even one of those DVDs out of the bargin bin at your favorite super store…and I guarantee you that whatever you choose, it will no doubt be infinitely more entertaining than Matrix: Revolutions was. Mind you, I didn’t like the second one, either, and thought that the story was pretty well told after the first installment, but if you go to see this movie and can seriously walk out saying that you enjoyed the show, I can no longer be friends with you.

So hopefully The Return of the King will end up being a better movie – I don’t honestly see how it couldn’t, but you never know! I’ve enjoyed watching the last two each year at Christmas and it’s been interesting to see how Peter Jackson has interpreted the story onto the silver screen thus far, so as long as he keeps doing what he’s doing and doesn’t push too hard to out-do himself on the last one, I think it should turn out pretty good. Of course, this doesn’t give him the go-ahead to go crazy/wild with his next adventure in filmmaking, but is there really anything that we could do to stop him?

Oh yeah, and if you haven’t been able to put two and two together thus far, I met a girl, too. A real one that doesn’t even need to be inflated this time – can you imagine?! It can only go downhill from here…

🙂
