And… I’m Back.

Flew back in to John Wayne Airport at about 8:30 this morning after spending the last four and a half days visiting family in the “greater” Gardnerville, NV area. While it’s a relatively short flight — only about an hour — the girlfriend and I still had to get up at 4:00 this morning to drive to the Reno, NV airport for the flight home. Believe you me, Carson Valley is cold at four in the morning — like 12 degrees.

So, the Thanksgiving visit to the parental units was the reason for the lack of posts the last five days, but there wasn’t much to post about… I didn’t go shopping on “Black Friday.” I wasn’t on the lookout for any nerd related news regarding television, movies, or comics. Nothing new to report on my various projects. And, apparently the writers strike is still on.

The main pastime in Carson Valley is gambling — which is fine by me since I dig blackjack and video poker. I didn’t do too bad, though I didn’t walk home with any fortune to speak of, I figure dropping about 100 bucks for the duration of the trip isn’t too shabby.

My brother did introduce me to Guitar Hero III, which was a lot of fun. Since I currently don’t have a video game console I doubt I’ll be rushing out to get my own to play. Hopefully my nephews who live about 20 minutes away will be getting it from Santa. And, speaking of Christmas shopping… I hope to start today and finish before the second week in December.
