I completed my test for Taekwon-Do yellow belt (woo hoo!). Now on to Yellow with Green Stripe.
Continuing to plan a trip to London that we will be taking in a couple months. If you know any exciting places in London to visit, please email them to me. This will be my first trip to Europe, so I am looking forward to it. I have heard the train to Paris is only about 3 hours, so, we may spend a day in Paris… Not really sure. No definite plans yet. No diving planned for this trip.
Saw two movies this last weekend: The Day After Tomorrow (TDAT) and Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban (HP3). Both were lots of fun. TDAT isn’t going to win many awards (other than maybe for special effects) and it quite campy, but, lots of fun. I believe HP3 is probably my favorite of the three Potter movies — very well done overall. HP3 is darker, smarter, and less “kiddy” than the first two movies.
In anticipation of the new Riddick movie, I picked up the Riddick video game for the Xbox — very well done and lots of fun. It’s a first person shooter (which takes some getting used to on the Xbox). If you are looking for an Xbox FPS to hold you over while you wait for Halo2, this is probably a good choice. I have read it is only about 10-12 hours long, but, it seems to have good replayability. No online component, but, a very strong single player game. I am probably 50-75% finished after a pretty solid weekend of playing. I also bought Full Spectrum Warrior online, so it should be arriving by the end of the week. I will let you know what I think of it soon (probably next week). I am also still working on finishing Far Cry for the PC (great game, in case I haven’t mentioned it before).
