The Poop Will Hit the Fan

We’ve been playing this GameCube game we rented from Blockbuster all week. We’ve made progress, but we aren’t close to being done. The problem? It’s due back by noon tomorrow. That stinks, actually, but I know we only rented, we didn’t buy. How long after you return something can you take it out again? Ad do I want to? Ya, I do. We’re enjoying this game. It’s Spongebob Squarepants and the Revenge of the Flying Dutchman. It’s easy in some places and hard in others and some of it is just annoying enough that you’re willing to spend 2 hours trying to figure out HOW to get from point A to point B. I think Junior will mourn deeply if we bring it back and he never gets to finish the game. It’s driving him crazy that we don’t yet have the reef blower so we can’t finish the downtown section of the game.

Went to the Berlin Orchards Easter Egg Hunt today. I know my Dad reads this so I’ll try to be nice, but next year, I think we should let the kid try to find the candy all by himself. The challenge was definitely removed by having three adults helping. Actually, it’s not that things were hidden so much as you went looking for the candy YOU specifically liked. It was $2 per kid, and they were allowed 15 pieces of candy each. Junior is big enough for the big-kid’s field, and basically they threw candy all over the ground. I know I personally walked on at least 5 Jolly Ranchers because we didn’t see them. Junior doesn’t like candy except for jelly beans and lollipops, and they didn’t have lollipops in the big kid section. So we hunted for little baggies with 4-5 jelly beans in them. It was actually really well-done, and I’m glad we went.
