My first Father's Day
Yesterday, was the first time I spent Father's Day as a father so, I got up and decided to do some outdoor work befitting a dad. I changed the oil in the lawn mower, mowed and trimmed the lawn, and began redoing the awful landscaping left from the previous owner of the house. Leah had to be at a bridal convention all day so she was gone until about six. Harper spent the morning hanging out with her Aunt Elana, who's visiting from Canada, and after I finished my yard work and cleaned up, Harper, Elana, and I spent most of the afternoon watching a Ninja Warrior marathon on G4. I love that show. I wish I had a huge obstacle course like that to play on, although, it would probably result in my death.
Eventually, it was nap time. I usually like to watch a movie while I'm trying to sleep, which I realize is often counterproductive but hey, its who I am. My choice yesterday was Titan A.E. I, honestly, think this is one of the most under-rated movies of all time. Its directed by the world class Don Bluth and the screenplay was written by Joss Whedon (who needs no introduction) and Ben Edlund (who created The Tick). I think Harper loved it, which would make sense because she has all the genes necessary to have impeccable taste. But seriously, that movie really is fantastic. After I write this, I'm going to go to IMDB and see if Don Bluth is still making movies.
After Leah got home we all went and ate at Chili's and then spent the rest of the night lounging around. All in all, a nice lazy Sunday.
If anyone out there knows a good proxy site that hasn't been blocked yet, please let me know. It would be really great if I could get on Facebook and Myspace during the day to do work for the band. Speaking of which, we have a big show this Friday in Austin at Antone's. If you'd like some cheap tickets you can get half price by following us on Twitter and by going to the event page at Do512 and clicking "I like it." Please do both of those things and tell your friends to do them as well. When you RSVP at the Do512 page you also get a free 9 song sampler that features all the bands playing that night.
