Today was another mellow day at Creath House. I didn't wake up until noon (not sure what's up with that, I did go to bed after 1am, but still...)
We saw "Ocean's Thirteen" today. Very amusing, a good mindless fun movie. Clooney and Pitt don't do anything for me, but they're not annoying either (like Nicolas Cage or Kevin Spacey are). It's worth the $8 ticket.
I also spent some time (finally!) unpacking the boxes my parents sent me, of stuff from my childhood they were storing until I had my own house. It was fun, and I'm not quite through it yet. I found a bunch of high school report cards and academic awards. Seems like my high school gave out awards for everything. "Yay, you showed up for school - here's an award".
I threw most of that stuff away - high school was way too easy for me to really be proud of any of that stuff. If I had gotten even a crappy award certificate from Caltech, I would have framed that sucker in a minute. Speaking of which, I know exactly where my Caltech diploma and my 3rd term sophomore year grade reports are right now. That's the stuff I'm proud of.
In one of the boxes, I found Alphie, a real live "computer programmed" toy robot from the 1980s. I remember playing with him, but I'm not sure if he was mine or my brother's. One of my parents will have to confirm. I'll have to dig up a 9-volt battery and see if he still works. See, I was always destined to be a geek. Other girls had Barbie, and I had Alphie.
Ooh, one last thing. Happy Anniversary to Jasmine and Chris! 12 years, can you believe it?? Yowza!
