So yesterday was my first Father’s Day ever. Father’s definitely don’t get the same celebration as mother’s, but hey, they do have to deliver our children. Anyways, we went out to the IKEA in West Sac with the excuse of looking for a new salt/pepper shaker. We ended up leaving with a tunnel for our daughter to crawl through and a cheesecloth drape to hang over her crib.
Then we went to Best Buy to return the gift that my wife got for me for Father’s Day; a portable Sirius/MP3 radio. It was an awesome gift, but due to the fact that my car fucking sucks balls and I mostly listen to Jim Rome/Don and Mike while out on route, I didn’t forsee myself really being able to get $13/mo worth out of it.
After Best Buy we went over to put our name in line at Ramano’s Macaroni Grill. Estimated wait time for our party of 9 was supposed to be an hour, but ended up getting seated in about 30 mins or so. But that was the only real bright spot of the dining experience yesterday. The service absolutely sucked, after our order was taken, it took 60 minutes to get our meals out to us.
Finally we ended the night by heading over to Target to pick up a few items which included: onesies for my daughter, shoes for my daughter, some glass cleaner for my wife’s car, and Brain Age for my wife’s DS.
Brain Age is a wacky edutainment title that seems to have spawned about 7 or 8 knockoffs in Japan and might be the first edutainment title to break into “mainstream” acceptance. I have to admit that it is pretty fun challenging yourself to lower your brain’s age. I do have a major gripe, letter recognition. This morning when I tried to write as many of the 4 letter words I was supposed to memorize I ended up forgetting the majority of them as I futily attempted to write the same words over and over when the damned thing would confuse my letters.
We’ll have to see if this brain training actually works … I really could use some help with my short term memory … huh?
