Scene: Steve is driving a car, with Jon and Daniel as passengers. They are going to see Serenity, and are just pulling in to the parking garage.

Daniel: "Oh, there's a spot. Is that a good place to park? Is there anything wrong with a G spot?"

The Laptop Club 

It's been a while since I've posted, but I thought I'd let everyone know about the cool, hip way Goatland spends Sunday afternoons... around the dining room table at the laptop club! (Well, 4 out of 6 of us anyway.) Jon is actually on the couch watching the St. Louis vs. Cardinals game from earlier (shhh! he'll be happy, but don't tell him Houston is going to win, he wants to be surprised). Barnali is MIA, in her room working I think. And now the laptop club...

Bree is working at one end of the table. Daniel is enjoying his newly purchased Age of Empires (which for the longest time I thought was the Age of Vampires, which sounded so much cooler -- think Buffy kicking ass through the ages). Steve is the newest addition to the table, and judging by the way he keeps pressing his fingers to his temples, he seems to be thinking pretty hard. I'm also working, aka clearing my inbox, though earlier I started a music war to counter the soundtrack of Daniel's Empire (lots of dinging bells, birds tweeting and the striking sound of metal on metal as his little people engage in swordfights). Beethoven's 9th was the first music (thanks for the sample, Microsoft!) I found on my computer, then Steve countered with the classic "All I Really Want" by Alanis Morisette featuring backup vocals by Bree and I, and the round finished off with "Somewhere Beyond the Sea" by Frank Sinatra. Okay, it wasn't really a war, but it was fun for a bit... and now we're back to Empire sounds and the baseball commentator.

That's the end. No point really, it's just funny that 4 of us are sitting at the dining room table with our laptops. Hope your Sunday was as relaxing as ours has been for the last few hours. :)
