The Uptown

So I am sitting here at The Uptown theater in DC, waiting for the 10 pm showing of Star Wars. This will be my first viewing and I wanted to see it at my favorite Theater.

I love going to the movies. Good, bad, it doesn't matter, I just like the movie going experience. In my ezperience, no Theater does it better than the Uptown Theater.

I'm looking forward to this final installment of Star Wars. Unlike some, I thought the first two overall told a good story, even though there some very very annying parts. From what I've heard, this one is supposed to be good. I hope it is.

Ok, time to geek out. Watch this clip. If you don't want to sit through the whole thing, at least forward it to it about 1:06 and listen until 1:32. And then the very end, 2:47.

Leroy is now a legend.

Hindsight and All That

So when is hindsight asinine and when is it just holding people accountable?

So, like, I haven't updated in a while. Here is what's up in Kautz land.

We aren't moving west anymore. I've spent the last four years establishing a support network for myself that I'm not ready to move away from. Additionally, moving to a rural area with a job that keeps me at home doesn't exactly lend itself for meeting new people. So as time went on I realized I was more and more uncomfortable with moving away from my social network as well. As a result, we will be staying in the great state of Virginy. Not sure where exactly, perhaps around Lake Anna or towards the north west.

I planted a tree! The front yard now has a tree in it, and I'm working on landscaping the front and back yards. So right now everything is sorta trashed, but what else is new. Should be pretty once it's all done. And my year long deck replacement project is getting close to being finished too. :) If you all ever replace boards on your deck DO NOT do a diagonal pattern. HUGE PITA.

Not sure I even mentioned this but the original plan, back when we were moving West, was to go out to Seattle next week for a series of meetings for work then, the following week, travel around the area with Leslie. Now that we aren't moving out there, I'm not going out to Seattle next week. Instead, I will be staying here working towards a June 10th release deadline and Leslie and I will spend the following week camping around Virginy and hitting the billions of vineyards in the state. Good times.

We pulled the boat out on Monday and its ready to rock this weekend. Gotta replace the radio and the bilge bump shorted out, but that's life. From what I can tell talking to others, electrical problems are just a fact of life when you own a open-hull power boat. So each year its a different issue. Kinda fun, kinda annoying. Anyway, if anyone wants to join us sometime this year, let me know and we will work out a time.

Let's see...what else is going on...I think that's it. Good times.
