This evening we're over at the Taylor's, hanging out with their old neighbors Skyler and Tyler. Apparently these are the guys who introduced the Taylors to Halo! So obviously there's a lot of Halo going on over here. And obviously everyone's having a blast. Jen showed up too! With the next Harry Potter for meee! ♥ I told her I'll have to catch up on my chores before I can start Goblet of Fire, haha. These books are so captivating.
Last week when Josh exchanged all our old CDs for store credit at McKay, he picked up some pretty sweet deals I've already told y'all about, like a $2 copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and a PS3 w/extra controller that we didn't pay a cent for. He also found a 75¢ book called Survivor: The Official Companion Book, all about the first season of the TV show Survivor. The prologue alone was intriguing enough for us to find a cheap copy of the first season on DVD! We've been watching as we read along in the book. It's cool to see how much things have changed (and not changed) on the show in 23 seasons.. It's obviously a well-oiled machine now, but back then it was this crazy experiment - they were figuring it out as they went along. The book talks a lot about the production side of things, as well as offering details about the tribes/contestants that didn't make the final edit. I've gotta say, I'm really enjoying the peek behind the curtain! Tonight will be a brand new episode on TV, so I'm excited about watching it, especially after being immersed in the first season all week. The contrast should be interesting.
