One Step Closer To Economic Equilibrium

by Rainier on March 7, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Man, these weekends really ought to be longer. They are over way too quickly.

Not much was accomplished this weekend, but it was nice and relaxing.

We did not end up going to see The Adjustment Bureau, as our friend canceled on us, so we postponed it until later. Next weekend, however, we're SO going to go see Battle: L.A., I've been drooling over that movie for months now! We did watch some more Supernatural and a few episodes of Mr. Sunshine.

I also wanted to clarify that Dinner for Schmucks mentioned yesterday is a horrible movie, it was never high on our "to watch" list and now we know why. The boring, uninspired, snore-inducing moments WAY outnumbered the occasional chuckles.
