My husband and some others are all excited about a sequel to the movie Tron called TR2N. I can't say that I'm all excited. I can't even say that I even liked the first movie. I like character driven stories, and I like plot driven stories, but I can't say that I like "gee look at the cool special effects" driven stories. I don't think that I really cared about it at all the first time I saw it. When I saw it later, I thought it was cool that Bruce Boxleitner and Peter Jurasik had been in a movie together before either of them had heard of Babylon 5. But that was about it. So I never got the big deal about the first movie and I don't really see why they decided to do a sequel twenty-five years later, but I'm sure that there are plenty of people out there saying the same thing about The Dark Crystal.
I continue to water my garden through the terrible hot whether, but other than that I'm not doing much work on it. I have not seen one single bee this whole summer. I'm not getting much out of my garden except for peppers, which is somewhat to be expected since most of my plants are peppers. But I also have three eggplants which have yet to produce anything, grape and cherry tomatoes that rarely have any tomatoes, several regular tomatoes that have only just now managed to produce one tomato (that was eaten by birds before I found it), and a zucchini plant which is only just now about to give me one lonely zucchini. I know that the whether is partially to blame, but this is a bit much.
Business is bad, and my husband had only been scheduled for three day weeks for several weeks. And now this week two of his days were canceled, so he's only working tomorrow. Of course, we still won't get any work around the house done. We didn't even put the foam stuff around the air conditioner yesterday.
Yesterday we found a travel coupon book in with the free advertisements at the movie theater, and we were looking through it a bit while we were waiting for the movie to start. We use a lot of these coupons, though not recently. Anyway, these coupons have the price of the room if you use the coupon, and the name of the motel, and the location of the motel, and a little list of reasons that you might like the motel such as free breakfast or heated pool or whatever. So we were looking at the coupons, wishing that since we have all this unexpected time off that we had enough money to go someplace. And on the cover of the little booklet it says something about getting away to South Padre Island, and then it says which page the South Padre Island coupons are on. So I turn to that page and there are a couple of coupons that give the name of the motel, and the location of the motel, and reasons why you might like the motel, and maybe even some dates saying when the coupons were good for (except for special events and weekend rates may be higher). But there were no prices on these two coupons. I don't think that I've ever seen coupons without prices before.
Seems like I had more to say, but I don't remember. That's plenty of nonsense for now anyway.
