Happy Monday

OK, the head is now clear after a fun weekend getaway to Austin. Well, not clear, as my brain cells are swimming in alcohol and I'm seriously lacking sleep, but getting away for a weekend was just what the doctor ordered! Getting back to Texas and seeing D is always so eye opening - I have so much food for thought upon getting back home!!

We never made it to the game Saturday, but watched it on D's giant plasma, so I think it was probably better than going to the game. We went to Whole Foods Market and got tons of food, plopped on his version of the Life Sucker 4000, and ate and drank ourselves silly. Some friends came over to join us and we were up til dark:30 drinking, hanging out, and playing Guitar Hero (more on that to come).

By the way, the Whole Foods in Austin was something like you wouldn't believe! Of course, it's their flagship store, as Whole Foods is based in Austin. The hot food bar was like a Vegas buffet, their cheese section was more extensive than anything I've ever seen, the wine selection was to die for, and the seating area had a stream running through it; it even has a kids playground to keep the little ones happy. It was unbelievable - even though our WF just got remodeled, it seems like a dump now...

And Guitar Hero... OK, this game is like crack. I've never really been into video games, but this was so unbelievably fun, I can't even tell you. So you have this little fake guitar that you use as the controller and basically play along with the songs. For every note you hit, you get X points. It doesn't work like a real guitar, so you don't actually have to know how to play it. There are buttons that you hit on the guitar that correspond with the screen, and show you which note to hit. It's really fun, the music is totally 80s hair band rock (which is a riot), the graphics are hilariously cool, and if you have 2 guitars, you can play against each other. If you get a chance to play it, you must - it's awesome!!!

Anyway, I hope you all had a great weekend too and have another great week.

Love, Mer
