Wizards are Hot

Heading down the folks place tomorrow night. We'll leave after work and stop at a Motel six in Jersey for the night. It's the only one we know that allows dogs, and since we’re bringing the Big Brown Monster, no other place we know of will accommodate us. It is in the armpit of New Jersey. It would be nice if we could find an alternative that's next to a nice restaurant or jazz bar. But no, so strip mall central here we come!

It will be nice to be home for a while. My mom is still recovery from her episode a few weeks back. Hopefully she'll be doing better.

On a side note, her inability to see straight has left the cooking duties to the daughters. Um, yeah. My sister’s beau has offered to bake an apple pie, but that is approximately 15% of the entire meal, so needless to say I will be elbow deep in foodstuffs Thursday morning.

It will be nice to watch some football there too. I can rib my dad about USC near loss to Fresno State (yes, he is a Trojan). It seemed like all the planets were lining up to help the Hokies reclaim a rightful spot in the BCS...or do I dare say a National Title chance, but with Penn States win and USC pulling it out, that little fantasy must die. Things still look good for the BCS and the ACC title, with Georgia Tech beating Miami! Boy, I was hoping, but I really didn't think it would happen.

There is also a plan to see the new Harry Potter. I am so excited I can't even tell you! Goblet of Fire was, by far, my favorite book of the series. I can't wait to see the mermaids and how cute Cedric will be. Of course, he couldn't get close to the prettiness of Oliver Wood. Rrrreeeeyaaar (that is supposed to sound like a cat...you know...reeeeeeerrrrrrr?) Who, by the way, I believe was at the Quidditch World Cup in the book, so perhaps he will make an appearance?!

I am sad that I may not get to see any friends while at home. Mrs. T will be away at her hubby’s family. There was hope that we could gather on Sunday, but since the stupid Rockettes settled their strike, she is destined to be a Radio City Music Hall watching a Holiday Spectacular!! (I think...let me know).

Ahhhhhhh, it appears that the in-laws DID get tickets for the Rockettes on Sunday . . . but not for us! Still hoping to return Saturday night. Even if I have to meet you at Mobile - I WILL see you this weekend!
