Happy Easter! Another Sunday is upon us, and this one is special for the Christian or pagan religious and/or those just into all things pastel! I wish a Happy Easter to all, whatever your persuasion.
It's been a busy week for me. Lots of productive work time and charitable volunteer time, mixed with a fair amount of play time.
Kids went back to school after their spring break. Now for the big home stretch into summer!
Last weekend, after our afternoon of hiking, we swung by a McDonalds. We patronize them every so often. It just wouldn't be right to not let our children enjoy their eat-Super-Sized-Big-Mac-Extra-Value-Meals-and-remain-a-lank-bean-pole years. Plus, I've been known to have a filet o' fish attack from time to time.
So anyway, we swung by this McD's and the service was just AW-ful. We waited forever for our order along with the small handful of other customers waiting forever for their orders. It was so atypical, I thought I would fill out their online comment form (I was polite). They should know these things, right?
The manager of the errant McDonald called me this week, we had a nice little chat, and I got 5 free samwiches. Nice to know someone cares (unlike Jerry's recent Reese's incident).
In movie news, we enjoyed the goofy and lighthearted The Hangover. I knew it was just goofy crudeness, but enjoyed it enough after the boring and depressing aforementioned "Everybody's Fine". It's more enjoyable for the menfolk, I suppose. Chaco and Wolfgang viewed it along with Magnum and me.
Word of caution: if you happen to get the "unrated" version, which I realized LATER, and there are teenagers or younger - or perhaps other family members like grandmas or something - watching it with you, STOP the thing BEFORE the credits roll! Just sayin'!
