A Relaxin’ Weekend, A Busy Week Ahead…

I had one of the most relaxing weekends in a long time. On Friday night, we went to Rock Bottom for dinner. By the way, for all of the complaining commenting I do about the sign outside of the restaurant, I really do like the place inside a lot. The manager, Marco, is a great guy. I was in bed by 12:30am. I worked that day from about 7:45am until about 6:15pm. That’s after switching by body schedule around from the overnight shift. I liked being “dayside” because it’s different and provided me with some variety in my job.

Saturday, my friend, Kevin, came up and we played frisbee in the Powerhouse parking lot. We started up on the Viaduct but that idea quickly played itself out as a bad one when one of the frisbees landing in the parking lot below and the other one on the rooftop of a building on the other side. We recovered one of them I hope to recover the other one as well. Kevin doesn’t own up to the bad throws but claims my lack of catching them. I played/helped with “Zelda” for several hours. Basically lounging around until about 11:30, again, I was in bed by midnight-ish.

Side note about “Zelda”: We experienced something we call “Sand Foot” when we were inside of the Arbiter’s Grounds. Link starts moving outside of the sand like he’s walking in it. You most likely have bugs on you, use the nunchuk to shake them off of you and you’ll move faster again. We honestly thought it was either a bug in the game or the Wii was malfunctioning. How could that be? Side note out…

I got up this morning around 8am. Wow, eight hours of sleep. Amazing! I got a full workout, laundry started and I’m going for another killer run with Molly. I think she’s trying to kill me. Really, if I turn up dead on the side of a Cleveland street in a running outfit, you’ll know who to question.

After that, I’m off to my sister’s house for the second Sunday in a row. I’m getting bonus family points for this. Yes, you don’t have to warn me, I’ll wear the sunscreen because I’m not going through another week with burn and blistered shoulders like I did last week complaining to all of my co-workers. They’re tired of hearing me complain but they don’t have any choice.

I’m not getting into everything I have on the schedule for the upcoming week now or I won’t have anything to blog about later this week. Hey, it’s a tease, I’m in the TV news business, it’s what we do!

If you haven’t read my blog entry about my dad, please check it out.

To all of the Dad’s out there, have a happy one!

Wii Have Zelda

I don’t own a Wii but I partially own a game for the game console. We bought The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

I’m not by any means a gamer but I have always liked the Zelda games. We’ve played the game for about 37 hours now. It keeps a tab on your gameplay. At any rate, if it wasn’t for IGN, we probably wouldn’t be as far along as we are right now. They have a walkthrough on their website that has helped get us through a couple of spots we couldn’t figure out for ourselves. We are now at the Hyrule Castle. From the looks of it, we have plenty of game left. One of the toughest parts for us so far was getting the covered wagon to the town without it catching fire. You can keep putting it out but the trick was killing the birds overhead. They are the enemies you really need to worry about because they drop bombs. With them gone, the wagon will follow the path and arrive at the town. We must have sent a hour trying to figure it out. It’s a fun game. A good way to check out of life for a while and forget about everything.
