HAPPY BIRTHDAY goes out to the Norm half of vickyandnorm today!
Sore today from all of the Wii playing yesterday. (Can you believe it? Sore from a video game?)
Another lazy day today. We slept in but were up in time to watch Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. It was a beautiful day out, but it wasn’t until around 2 PM that we finally ventured out of the house. We walked to Shirlington in bright sunshine and cool temperatures and, as always, the walk was pleasant. In Shirlington, we stopped at Johnny Rocket’s for some lunch, and then headed across the street where I got a haircut. I’ve never gone into a Hair Cuttery on a Sunday afternoon and found it so dead. There were a half dozen stylists just sitting around waiting for someone to come in. It took them longer than usual to cut my hair, and I think that’s because they were bored and wanted the company. One odd thing: the price had gone up to $16 for a haircut, this after a recent spate of TV ads that promised, "Always $14."
Heard from A.J. and Denisse this afternoon. First Denisse called, and later, A.J. called and we spoke for a little while.
We watched TV in the late afternoon and early evening, watching The Bicentennial Man, based on Isaac Asimov’s short story of the same name. I saw the movie when it first came out, but I enjoyed watching it again today. When it was over, we headed back out for a short walk. This time, the skies were dark and the temperatures were cooler, but the cool air felt good in my lungs.
I spent the rest of the evening reading more of Einstein.
