Pens go from 0-3 to 4-3, that was something to watch.

I hear the new ones are made of tough plastic. :D

They could've made a much worse Kong movie than Skull Island. I didn't go for the plot, and despite making my neighbor giggle at a less than perfect time, I wasn't JUST there to ogle Tom Hiddleston. He was actually one of the quietest, least-developed characters in the bunch. The fact that Skull Island gave us beautifully designed & executed CGI, no human characters grandstanding for attention (I'm lookin at YOU, Jack "Carl Denham" Black...), and LOTS of monster fights made me happy. The fact that I saw all the really sweeping sequences on big screen made me happy. The fact that I'll get to go see it again when my sweetie & friends go is happiness waiting for the right time to happen.

The last sentence in that post made me smile.

Got a call from SonofV today. He wants to visit this weekend. We're gonna work on our costumes for SakuraCon.

I'm happy!

daughter of glatt just heard from her second college. Dickinson. They gave her what I understand is a pretty good deal, although I still have sticker shock.

Annual sticker price cost of attendance is $69.1K but her special price is $24.3K.

By way of comparison, in-state University of Virginia is $30.4K. Rumor has it that UVA is much less likely to give scholarships, they mostly do loans. So these private out of state schools are actually cheaper with their scholarships.

But she got in! She's currently 2-0. Waiting to hear from 3-4 more.

That's very exciting! You have a lot to be proud of. My congratulations to her, and to you and her mother. WTG!

Went out to dinner with a good friend, fancy place that opens at 5pm with a line down the block because they won't take reservations. 45 minute wait for a table, and both bars backed up three deep. $9 for a glass of Cabernet, $6 for Beam and ginger, $10 for a burger to $25 for a steak. Her son is a chef there and the owner comped our meal and drinks for four. I did take care of the waitress and Jazz Trio though. Splendid night. :thumb:

Only the highest calibre of ladies and gentlemen tip the dinner band. :thumbsup:
