I think we are going to go to Leavenworth this weekend, which is the equivalent of visiting a german village (its the weird little town we went to a tree lighting ceremony two christmases ago). They are doing their octoberfest stuff, and we thought it would be fun to get out of town for a day. We haven't locked down that it is our definite destination, as I suggested maybe we should go to Forks and see the homeland of Twilight for shits and giggles.
I'm on a new quest to find a decent lawnmower as the one that was bequeathed to me smokes like something that smokes alot and I end up getting headaches from the fumes. You have no idea how ESSENTIAL a lawnmower is unless you live around here. The forest will come alive and take you...
I've been trolling craigslist for the past 2 months looking at old arcade machines, and I'm quite ready to buy one now. I just have to find the right one. On one hand I want a cabinet to make a MAME (multi arcade emulator) machine out of it, but there is the part of me that just wants the original game in there. The market for used games both current and ancient is thriving in these parts, and I've made great strides on my classic game collection this year. Having an arcade cabinet has been a dream of mine since I was a kid though... I saw that there is a garage sale in my part of town tomorrow where a pinball machine will be sold, but I don't think we are sticking around town long enough for me to check it out.
Now that we have the house, we are going to take our halloween decorating to the next level by doing some decorations outside. I think we are doing a graveyard in the front yard, so that should be fun. I'll be sure to take pictures.
