So, it is the New Year! 2012! Hey, wait… isn’t the world suppose to end this year? I guess we’ll see, huh?
Well, John and I decided to bring in the new year with a Harry Potter movie marathon. John got me the 8-disc Blu Ray set, sadly not the one with all the special features as we didn’t have $250 to spend on movies… but it’s still awesome none-the-less We had another couple over as we started the first movie at noon on December 31st and planned to go non-stop for the entire 19 hours and 40 minutes (yes, we added all the times of the movies together to figure out how long it’d take!). Well, with only 20 minutes left of the second movie (Chamber of Secrets), they decided to head home to take a nap so they would be fully ready for our all-night adventure.
They ditched out. After a couple hours we tried getting a hold of them, and apparently they wanted to go play pool instead. Lame. Oh well, we were still going to continue, it just wouldn’t be “as” fun and all our alcohol wouldn’t be drunk… Because I’m not much of a drinker and John probably wouldn’t want to drink a bunch of “girlie” drinks! :D
Well, we finally put Easton to be around 11PM or so, and started Year 5, “Order of the Phoenix“. This one is actually my least favorite of the movies I about fell asleep and after the movie was over, we decided to go to sleep and continue in the morning. If we had gone non-stop, our marathon would end just about the time Easton would be waking up, and then we’d have to stay up even longer to take care of him and I wasn’t about to do that! So, we headed to bed between 1AM and 2AM and finished the other 3 movies today.
I’m thinking about starting a photoblog… what you think? Oh, random thought! Earlier tonight I was outside having a smoke (I do this about everytime I let the dogs outside) and saw two moose walking down the middle of the street! No joke! Most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen! Too bad it was -40 degrees out and I didn’t have my camera… I woulda chased them down and gotten some pictures! :D
How did you all bring in the New Year?
