Making A Girl. Actually Making A Girl. Like Frankenstein... Except Cuter

Yesterday was a fun day. It was one of those nice fall days that's kind of chilly but sunny; it wasn't cold, but it wasn't warm either. We had some friends come over, went out to breakfast, did some shopping, made dinner, and rubbed our bellies.

An impromptu visit to Gamestop got us a few old games, Zak & Wiki and Tales of Desperaux, and I was eyeing a Wii Perfect Shot lightgun for $15, but decided to hold off and see what else was out there. When we were at Target, I picked up a Zapper Blaster for $25, but then changed my mind at the checkout. When we got home, a quick check on eBay got two zapper laser guns for a total of $25 instead. Sweet!

Later today, we plan on seeing Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day and stopping at Asqew for dinner.
