Daily Grind: Rested

Name: Vin (aka kevin)
How Vin feels today: Rested @ 9:40:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To enjoy this nice laid-back feeling for as long as possible.

Music Stuck in Head: Nothing Too Tough / The Backyardigans
The in-car music of choice for the little ones. Multiple times. Every car ride.

Stuff to do today:

  • Note that that the latest Pixar offering, UP, was quite enjoyable
  • Note that the Disney 3D experience is not all that it's cracked up to be
  • ...the effects were kind of neat but overall it kind of degraded the overall definition of the movie
  • Stop being such a movie experience nerd
  • Speaking of Disney, read up some more technical explanation regarding the monorail crash
  • Wait patiently to see what LucasArts has in store today for this 'special announcement' they teased all weekend on Twitter
  • My guess is still Grim Fandango

Updated versions of Grim Fandango and Full Throttle would be pretty cool.
