Friday Update

All day I have been going back and forth. Go to a football game or not? Ann and I have tickets to the Maryland vs UNC football game. The game starts at 3:30 and is also on TV. This morning the weather was pretty good. Cloudy with patches of sun. The temperature was in the low 70s. Warm for November. However, the forecast sounded terrible. Rain, heavy at times, with chance of thunderstorms. We're also currently under a tornado watch. The rain has started. The temperature has already dropped 10 degrees. I think we'll stay home.

Yesterday was our Friday off. The Son was also off due to the fact that he has to work a special Sunday shift. He was bored and wanted out of his condo. We arranged to get together for lunch and hang out. We opted to try Red Lobster and their new fire grilled menu. Once we were seated and looked at the menu, the fire grilled selections, while sounding good, were more than we wanted to pay for lunch so we chose cheaper alternatives. I went for the New England Clam Chowder and Lobster pizza. After lunch we did some shopping at Target and then headed over to Potomac Mills Mall to go to a movie. We had some time to kill so we window shopped and picked up an odd thing or two. Finally it was movie time and we watched "Body of Lies" with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe. It was pretty entertaining if you like the spy game genre. A big bag of popcorn didn't hurt either. After the movie, we did our usual Friday night pizza. We manage to miss the expected traffic jam around the local high school, which was involved in a football playoff game. After woofing down a pizza between the three of us, we returned home to try in indoctrinate The Son into the TV show "Fringe", which Ann and I love and had DVRed. It wasn't one of their better episodes and I don't think he left convinced to get involved in it. Oh well, his loss.

It's time for football.
