Have you ever had one of those days where nothing goes right? Well, yesterday was like the exact opposite of that. Normally days only go that right when it's my birthday or something.
Shootin' Buddy showed up in the morning and we went to Good Morning Mama's for breakfast, which was apparently a popular choice yesterday; by the time we left they had overflowed the waiting area and were lined up outside in the rain.
From there, we drove to Eagle Creek Pistol Range, where I burned up the last punches on a ten visit pass. It was just drizzly enough to keep most folks away, but snug and dry on the covered firing line. I burned up some .22LR, 9mm, and .38 Spl over the course of a couple hours' worth of shooting.
After we left the range, Shootin' Buddy asked about the show times for X Men First Class and, using the power of the internets, I found out. I turned my new little cell thingy on, hit two buttons, and said "X Men First Class Indianapolis Show Times" into the phone's mic and *Bam!*, Google told me. Right there in the truck. This future world you people have is fascinating.
Watched the movie. Liked it a lot. As a movie, it is one of the better superhero flicks. (By this I mean that, for example, I sat through the Wolverine movie mostly out of loyalty to the comic book character, but I acknowledge that as a piece of cinema, it was execrable.) If you are a history or miltary hardware buff, you will have some quibbles with anachronisms, but complaining about flawed realism in movies with flying dudes that shoot lasers from their eyes makes one look a tad pedantic, know what I'm sayin'?
After the movie, Shootin' Buddy dropped me back off at Roseholme Cottage. The sun had come out, so I dropped the top on the Nazi rollerskate and drove the long way to the Brew Pub to pick up a growler of IPA. I returned home to find that Bobbi had picked up a couple of fat steaks while she was out riding around on her scooter, which she proceeded to grill up for dinner. We ate them while watching Army of Darkness, which she had never seen.
And then I went to bed early. And it was a good day.
(And now I have to make up for all that time I didn't spend sitting in front of a computer yesterday...)
