Geocaching and George...

So I was going to post on Thursday, and it was going to be amazing. I was going to talk about my eventful Thursday night, and Rachel was going to be shocked and say "on a Thursday?!?". And then, I forgot to post....

Now, I am going to tell of my adventures anyway. On Thursday night, I was sitting around, trying to avoid my homework, looking for something to do. I left my house at 8:00, and by the time the evening was through I had: gone for coffee with Laura, gone geocaching with Shaun Gaynor and visited Lavonne.

Oh yes, you might have picked up on the italics there. I went geocaching. Now, if you don't know the MacDonalds, you might be wondering "What is geocaching?". Its this international game that is monitored online. People sign up, and use their GPS unit to find co-ordinates. At this co-ordinates is a little box, filled with.....nothing. Well sort of. Everyone who finds the "cache" records their name inside. It's strange and wonderful all at the same time. It's sort of a "thrill of the hunt" type of scenario. On Thursday night, Shaun and I climbed up tree roots, hopped a fence and discovered our treasure - a film canister. I know, it sounds quite odd, but it's actually great times.

And now, its Sunday and truth be told, the weekend hasn't provided too much more entertainment. Yesterday, we moved my brother from "Denim" to a beautiful house in Langley. Sadly, it was raining, so it made for a pretty wet day for some. On Friday, Matt and I did get a chance to see Ocean's 13. Of course, I was already on board because it was an excuse to watch George for two hours straight. But the boys actually redeemed themselves from Ocean's 12. I heard that they made it simply for this purpose. Even so, it was well executed. The cast was on their game pulling sly maneouvers and just being charming. This is truly George at his best, in his suit grinning with those beautiful eye wrinkles. Umm..sorry random George tangent there. Truly though, I do recommend the movie, for more than just George. If you liked the first, you will like this.

Sharelle.. 1) I want you to know that I signed up for a "google" account just so I could leave a comment on your blog!!!!

2) my heart went pitter patter when I saw a GPS (Garmin Legend no less) on your blog page.. doesn't take much to send my heart aflutter ;)

3) after I finished writing my 2 points, I realized that Bec also had a #1 and #2... the apple does not fall far from the tree...
