Snow! Snow! Snow!

We got about twenty inches of snow on Saturday. It was pretty fun. I walked about a mile through the winter wonderland of South Philly to taken in a matinee of Avatar with my buddy Michael. The movie was pretty fun. The effects were neat, but I think I would have preferred it without the 3-D, as that made the images lose a bit of their crispness. I expected a much better story from James Cameron and the first twenty minutes convinced me I might even get it, but the script just coasts from there. People who call it Dances With Wolves in space are pretty much right, which is funny to me since I always thought of Dances With Wolves as F Troop without the jokes.

We got in a nice walk to the grocery store on Sunday, mainly because we wanted to walk around in the snow. I made a pot of chili and baked some oatmeal cookies. We watched the first two Harry Potter movies, which K. brought home from the library, and I enjoyed them more than I expected to, although I think the filmmakers are definitely racist against Muggles.

Today is the official first day of Winter, which is awesome because it means the days are getting longer again. We're around the seasonal affect disorder corner! Unfortunately, it also makes me feel bad that I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet.
