Harry and I went to our monthly game night at our friends house in Pasadena. Our regular crowd (the guys we play games with everytime) were not going to be there other then our friend Tom so the night started off kind of slow. The past few years the game nights have gotten kind of clicky. There are certain groups of guys that tend to gavitate towards each other. Sometimes there is a crossover but most times the same group of people play games together. Well with our group not there Harry and I sat and chatted for a bit with each other in the living room and finally Tom showed up and got things going. We played a bunch of fun games with Tom and a few others.. the night started off slow but we ended up having a great time.

Well I finally got some free time and decided that I would go see a movie that I have been wanting to see since the middle of Dec. Eragon, it's based on a series of books. Of course it being the beginning of Jan I have heard things about this movie so going in I didn't have very high hopes. I mean I loved the books but heard that they movie is nothing like the book. After seeing it I have to say that I loved that movie. Yes it's a very condensed version of the book but most movies made from books are less detailed then the book. The SFX were AWESOME and the acting was good. Yes the story left out a lot of details but I think if you hadn't read the books you would still understand the overall story. I plan on buying it when it comes out on DVD.
Since I was at the movies and haven't been in quite a while I figure I would see another movie that I have wanted to see. Happily N'ever After, well I thought this movie looked cute from the previews but it's just okay. The story isn't that great and for that matter, there really isn't much a story. Also it wasn't that funny... it was trying to be a Shrek and it was no where near as good as the Shrek movies.
So I saw an AWESOME movie (Eragon) and a SO SO movie (Happily N'ever After).

Well we are still having no luck in finding a house to rent. We find houses that we can afford but they aren't in the best area and the ones we find in the better area are a bit out of our price range. As my friend Jonathan likes to say it only takes one.. I just hope that one comes sooner then later. I would love to move before I find a new job. Just in case anyone hears of anything we are looking for a 2 to 3 bedroom with a backyard for $1600 to $1700 a month. Thanks
