Happy Leap Year 2012

We had a nice Leap Day with friends. We went over to see our friends Michele and Bob for pulled pork. Allison and Eva made some delicious s’mores brownies. We enjoyed a nice night of friendship food and our kids having tons of fun.

Before we went over to see Michele and Bob we ran a few errands. Still looking for that TV that I’ve promised myself I’d buy with part of my bonus and the money from the Kia Twitter Party. I’m still trying to decide on which one to buy. I’ve looked all around at Target, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears and Amazon. I talked with a few of the salespeople and the consensus is that this month the new TVs will be hitting the stores. I then figure that maybe we should wait till after vacation is over to get the TV. That and some shades for the windows in the living room. I’m looking to hopefully find a TV that has wi-fi built in at least 120 Hz, LED and is between 46 and 55 inches. I’ve been dying to see some things on a screen that large. The TV we have now is a flatscreen LCD that is 27 inches and it has been great. I bought it at Comp USA back in 2005 I think and it has served us really well in that time. But now is the time to step into something larger.

After our errands we dropped over to visit my parents. Eva got to spend some time playing with my Mom and Dad. They both got some time to hold Andrew. Andrew was charming. Eva was cute and funny but I think wanted to have special time all her own. She’s really pretty good about having a baby brother but occasionally she gets a little bent nose. Not often but it comes out once in a while. But she had a nice time and then had play time with her friend to take her mind off not being the center of attention all the time.

Oh and the brownies were awesome!

My New Favorite Prime

No, not the action figure. It is decent and has a good transformation but could be better. The flip out gun is cool and makes it sort of like the weapons that come right out of the Autobot’s arms and all but it doesn’t stay open. It also lights up so that is cool. This is one of the better Prime figures I’ve seen in a long time though.

My new favorite Prime refers to the show called Transformers Prime. It is the best Transformers show since Generation One. I wrote all about it this morning in my review of the Season One Transformers Prime Blu-ray set. I’m enjoying season two right now. Only two episodes in and I just want more.

Today I recorded an episode of Geek Dads Weekly. We not only recorded the audio but captured video from each of us. We had a big discussion about Affiliate Marketing and then got into things going on in our lives. It was a fun show and I enjoyed being able to see my co-hosts Daniel M. Clark and Greg Hoffman.
