Freedom Isn't Free At All. It Comes With The Highest Of Costs: The Cost Of Blood.

by Rainier on Oct. 19, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

It was a nice day out today: sunny, but with a nice breeze to keep everything nice and mellow. Then again, it never gets really cold out here. It can get rainy, but it rarely dips below freezing point, and it never snows. Yet we managed to stay inside most of the day. :)

After we ran a few errands, we saw Zombieland, which was quite funny, with a good dose of head-bashing and blood & guts. Apart from a 10-minute sappy segment in the middle, it was great from start to finish. We were a little skeptical about Law Abiding Citizen because the early reviews were not very favorable, but we ended up having a great time. It even startled us on a few occasions!

Since we had an early start on the day, we still had plenty of time left when we returned from the movies, so we caught up on the remaining episodes of Heroes, Smallville and The Amazing Race. The DVR is all cleaned out, so we're feeling triumphant!
