First BBQ!

Subject: Musings
What an excellent day to begin my vacation!

After a week of rainy cool weather, the clouds parted, and the sun came close to warming things up here by the lakeshore. It didn't really get above the low 60's, but the sun helped it feel warmer that it really was.

So I finally fired up the old "Pitmaster" and bbq'ed up some chicken. And smoked a nice cigar. Aaahh. A fine evening.

For entertainment, I'm going to give "Ghost in the Shell: Innocence" a try. I remember that I couldn't quite make it through re-watching the original movie (dubbed on cable TV) because it just kept talking and talking, but I figure it's worth trying the sequel. Besides, the "Stand Alone Complex" series wasn't too bad, even dubbed; so I should be able to deal with it.

Last night I finally caught up with "Monster" -- damn, this series keeps getting stronger and stronger, even after a year's worth of episodes! More interesting twists to the characters and the story reveal themselves. And just when you thought Johann couldn't be any creepier... well, watch it and you'll see! Heh.
