Burgers, Bats and Budgets

Today I got up a bit later due to the fact that I didn't get to sleep until 3am. I wasn't feeling so hot, the past few days I've woken up with a sore throat but today my stomach was hurting as well. I wound up cancelling my plans for Saturday evening with my buddy Sebastian and also my visit with family tomorrow. But today I was having lunch with my buddy Thomas (from Ireland) and watching Dark Knight Rises, I probably would have cancelled that but the tickets were already purchased and this Thomas' second to last day and I'm lucky enough to see him once or twice a year.

Before lunch and a movie with Thomas,  I had hoped to get some podcasting done, but yeah that didn't happen. I did manage to clean my entire house which made me so happy. I hate having a dirty house and I haven't been able to do any cleaning or anything since before comic con. I even had all my comic con stuff still all over the place. But I wasn't suppose to meet up with Thomas until 1pm which meant I had to leave my place by noon. That gave me a good two hours to clean and clean I did.

As it always happen my stomach started to hurt 15 minutes before I had to leave. So I had to push back our meet up time to 1:30pm. I got to Sherman Oaks Galleria around 1:30 and meet up with Thomas. We decided to have Fuddruckers this time. Last Wednesday we did P.F. Chang's before Spiderman. Thought my stomach issues were done but I was wrong. After eating lunch I started to feel stomach pains again and the bathroom at Fuddruckers was broken so we quickly went to the theater and I went directly to their facilities. I figured I'd be in there for a while so I told Thomas to go in and get our seats and I'll meet him inside,  hopefully before the movie started. I did manage to get to my seat just as the previews started. Was very excited as I got to see the new Man of Steel preview and it looks pretty awesome.

3 hours later the movie ended and we made our way back to the parking structure. We were saying goodbye when I suggested that we go hiking at Vasquez Rocks tomorrow morning before he makes his way south to the airport. Even though I wasn't feeling well I couldn't say goodbye.. just yet.

Here is my Dark Knight Rises review... As I've said in previous blog posts I'm not a huge fan of Batman or this reboot.. well I should amend that. After seeing The Dark Knight and rewatching Batman Begins I have to say I really enjoyed Dark Knight Rises. It was very entertaining, full of action, had a great story that connected it to first movie. I liked the SFX. I loved the batcycle especially when it turned and the wheels would roll. Catwoman was fantastic and I liked "Robin". I think it was a great ending for this trilogy. And I can now say without a doubt that I really enjoyed all three of these movies and look forward to having a marathon one day. I give this movie a B and the over all trilogy a B+

After the movie I came home and made some dinner (which again hurt my stomach). I finished cleaning up the house but the thing I really wanted to do was watch the series finale of one of my favorite TV shows Eureka.

Eureka is one of those series that is just plain good. I've been there since the very first episode and enjoyed the ride. I was sad to hear when Syfy cancelled it especially since it was looking like it was going to be renewed for a sixth season. Syfy was kind enough to actually give them one more episode to do a final goodbye episode. This is what I watched tonight and I loved every minute of it. They brought back all the "main" characters from seasons past. It was a nice way to end the series and to thank all their loyal viewers. I'm sad to see it go but so happy with got 5 seasons of this FANTASTIC series.

One other thing I did tonight..  I worked on Chris and my secret project. I created a budget for this project. It's tough not being able to tell you guys what this is but we want to make sure it's going to really happen before we announce anything.. so stay tuned.

I didn't get everything I wanted to do done but I still think I had a productive Saturday. And for the first time in two weeks I'm going to bed at a decent time.
