Weekend Recap
Friday night we hit the Jacaranda Festival. We had dinner at the house before we went down, so I wasn't hungry enough for a dagwood dog (translation: corndog). But we did get to go on one ride, the Cyber Party. It was no Dreamworld experience, but it was four minutes of solid fun.

We saw the 15-minute fireworks display... which had potential for disaster when the coordinating music started with a Nickelback song, but it quickly segued to Michael Bolton -- not much better, but slightly less gag-inducing. Only slightly.

We also caught the first act of the High School Battle of the Bands -- Woot! Hans had a shocking realization of what it must have been like for people to witness his early musical career, and he apologizes.

Saturday we went to a fun little wedding. Got a chance to brush off our dancing shoes, as they played a lot of swing music.

And yesterday we played Lego Star Wars and finished watching Season 3 of Arrested Development. There is now nothing left to live for.

More Advanced Passes
We have another advanced screening ticket for this week to see Catch a Fire. All I know about it is what is printed on the ticket, but considering my South African connections, I'm anxious to see it.

Agreed. There is no reason to live now that Gob is gone.
