Geek Nite Out.

It's a posting frenzy on Wings today. Three in one day has got to be a record. (For me)

* * * * * * *
Tonight Eric's buddy from up the street called him on his "Mike". For more than an hour they miked back and forth while Eric sat in front of his computer. They were both looking at the same computer store's online flyer. What should I buy? What is he buying? What are you going to buy? Blah blah blah.

For crying out loud. Just go across the street already. Then after all that they called a third guy from up the street and the three decided to actually go and hit the stores in person. Woo hoo.

Then after spending however many hundreds of dollars on computer stuff they're going to go out for dinner. Ain't that sweet? (Let it be noted that after Eric told me that the card he wants is only $100 I found out it will actually cost closer to $200.)

I still can't believe that we moved to a street where there are other Eric-like guys.

So while Eric's out being geeky I've decided to be geeky here. We're having a Lord of the Rings Marathon. For the last 3 years at Christmas, my family and I have gone out to the theatre to see each installment of the trilogy on the screen. This year we were a little lost that there was no new one to see. So last night we watched the extended version of the first one. Tonight it's the extended version of the second one. Tomorrow night, number 3. Not only did we get the extended version for Christmas but my Dad did too.

And Eric has already sent away his cheque (for $4) for the handy little case in which you can nicely showcase all 3 extended versions.

Aren't we a bunch?

A Mike is a cell phone that you can also use as a 'walkie talkie'. As long as you have each other's call numbers you can talk to each other via the Mike aspect. It's usually something used for work.

oh... we have those too... we call the CB's though... they are these big boxes that fit underneath your dash... and then we get these really, really long antennas, and put tennis balls on the end... we say really cool things like "breaker, breaker 1-9" and "this is mad-dog, any smokeys out there on the i-20?" or "bird-dog, BIRD-DOG! what your 20?"
