Dad left for a tour yesterday and Mom is still in Europe, so Taylor and I are holding down the fort, as they say. We decided to walk down to the local Mexican restaurant last night, Amigo's, for a margarita and some sort of taco dish. It was delicious.
On the way home we stopped by Walgreens to rent the so-called new Star Wars movie. He and I have been planning to watch it extremely critically before writing our extended review. We want facts like how many bad jokes there are, how many times it self-awarely makes fun of itself, how many references it makes to A New Hope, etc. So, with notebooks in hand, we got through thirty-five minutes of it (which took an hour and a half!). We'll try to do another thirty to an hour tonight, I imagine, although I do have to open in the morning, so we'll see.
I'm not sure what I'll do today. I might do a little vacuuming around the house, followed up by some shopping. I've been eyeing a box hair dye in a nice, purple-red color. The salon dye jobs are just too expensive to get every few months, and I already have too many little grey hairs to go much longer than that. Sad, I know. Maybe I'll go get my annual summer pedicure! Ahhh, the possibilities of a day off work. Stay cool this weekend!
