Super Duper Weekend

Even though Mother Nature dumped snow all over our city, my friends and I managed to get out and find fun things to do!  Friday was game night where I am becoming accustomed to losing at Rummikub and I’m not likin’ it.  Saturday, a bunch of went to see some movies at the State Museum.  They were offering a BOGO deal on 3 different movies.  First up was the 3D Under the Sea. I had called in a special favor to my parents to ship me their Avatar glasses that had a hard frame, but they didn’t end up working right so we went with the museum’s free offer of oversized 3D glasses.

We all had lines on our faces for an hour after the show, but it didn’t matter because the movie was great!  I’ve never watched a full 3D movie before and now I want to see EVERY movie in 3D!  I felt like I was in the ocean the whole time!  One scene had sea snakes that swam out at you and it did creep me out a bit, but the playful sea lions at the end made you think you could reach up and pet them.  Our free additional movie was either Louis and Clark or Mummies.  We went with mummies, but can’t say it was that great.  It was about recovering DNA and how tombs are found.  Oh well, off to our next adventure… Ice skating!

We hit the Pan Am plaza with 33 minutes left to skate.  The guy at the counter seemed very concerned that we were only going to get 33 minutes of skating, but I reassured him that the level of ice skating this crew was at, 33 minutes was plenty.  A few of us laced up and were out trying to show off our skills.  A few wipe outs happened, none by me thank you very much!  I did manage to do a 360 on purpose a few times, but they were so slow it wasn’t impressive.  K and I tried to do a round robin thing like you do on roller skates, but it didn’t even come close to working.  We opted for this instead.

The weekend wrapped up with a few visits to Super Bowl parties and a great victory for the New Orleans Saints!  It was hard for me to watch the game.  I didn’t clap or cheer at all in the first quarter.  Really didn’t want to root for or against anyone at that point.  Then once the Saints started to turn it around, I was all over it.  I’m very pleased with the outcome and think the Saints played a better game in the end.  I’m very proud that Purdue gets to claim a Superbowl quarterback champion in Mr. Drew Brees!

And to top off the whole great weekend, I was chosen at random for completing the Drumstick Dash survey months ago, and received my prize in the mail today.  Looks like I have my hat for next year!
