WOO HOO!!!!  Game day party that seemed like a pre-Thanksgiving feast.  I certainly ate like it was a feast… well, just call it another holiday!  But OSU has now defeated the dreaded “Team from the North” six years in a row with an awesome 21-10 victory including an end zone interception turned TD on the Wolvies first series!  Now.. outright Big Ten Champs off to Pasadena on New Years Day!

Joshua, whom I was mildly surprised to see at the house, was anxiously awaiting kickoff time.  At half-time, I challenged him to a good ol’ game of the ORIGINAL Donkey Kong (not the newfangled Super Mario endless array, but the original quarter munching variety… on the Wii).  I surprisingly defeated him.  After that, we saw little of the 13 year old (so much for the football game).

Then, I learned that Jeff is planning to take Elizabeth to see the new Twilight movie tomorrow after her play wraps.  Honestly, I don’t get the hype… too much, I think.  Maybe, one day I will sit and watch it to see what it’s all about; it looks like a teenage, vampire meets girl with a werewolf best friend love triangle.  I’ll pass.

So, now off to church… then to watch my niece on stage with a couple other little ones.

  1. Don’t get the whole Twilight thing either, but I do remember a comment about it Stephen King made, “”Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people. … The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”
    Thinking of trying out the Harry Potter series once I finish Jurassic Park. Tell me, would it be a bad thing to go in already knowing certain events, like the death of a major character? We’ll see, I’ve had almost too much fiction for now, maybe I’ll take a break and go back to non-fiction…

  2. Hey, Donkey Kong! That was one of my faves growing up. I was jealous of one Jason in my boy scout troop who could consistently get to level 4 when I never could finish level 3. I think I will fire it up on MAME.

  3. Hey, tay… I don’t think starting the HP series knowing certain events is such a bad thing. Sometimes, the journey to the events is well worthwhile. I do remember King’s comment. I think Twilight is geared more for teenage girls with and their drama… something you seem to know a wee bit about?

    Yeah, d… DK was always one of my favs, too.
