On the roof

Been having a great weekend so far. Nefarious had a sleep over with a friend on Friday night, so Caitlin and I were able to have one of our rare date nights, and went and saw Terminator Salvation… I’m a huge fan of the Terminator franchise and especially of the TV show, and I hate to say it, but the movie was a massive let down and I wouldn’t recommend it — it’s really a “dumb” movie and not in a fun way. Worst of the Terminator movies by far, and up against The Sarah Connor Chronicles — a very smart show — it really blows. Nonetheless, it is always a pleasure going out.

Then today we ate sushi on the beach and played with the boat — as I’ve already blogged at length — and when we got back home I finally took Nefarious up on the roof as I’ve been promising her for a while. I love having roof access, even if it involves an unfinished surface, a trip-inducing maze of stolen cable TV wires, and a treacherous (for someone as wide as me anyway) climb up through a skylight, which today tore a hole in the ass of my favourite shorts. Not that this will stop me from wearing them… There’s something serene about roofs. Then Nefarious went and watched some more martial arts training, and another friend came over to hang out for the rest of the day and lasagna.

I have high hopes for tomorrow as well, but now UFC 98 has my attention.

    But it screwed up the timeline with them jumping past a few years. Then it keept jumping to alternate realities.

    All things considered, I think the TV show is the *best* element of the franchise, and it really started getting especially good when the plug got pulled.

    As far as UFCs go, I thought it was pretty anticlimactic.

    really? at least its better then T3 right?

    ive never seen the TV show, but friends that watched it are always complaining about plots holes and how it screws up.
    i thought the new movie was awesome! i havent been this interested since T2. although i will agree that the ‘medical stuff’ at the end was weak.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
