For our shared birthday weekend Doc C and I had very simple plans, we wanted to a) go for breakfast at our favourite breakfast place, b) walk dogs.
There was a football game on Saturday, so we knew we had to get to town early to have any hope of a table without waiting for half an hour or more. The game was at 4, we got into town at about 8:15 and the traffic was already starting to clog the town up, but, mission accomplished we had breakfast.
After eating baked apple and french toast with lashings of coffee we decided to go for a walk, and we happened to meet our friend David and, his new dog, Buster. He is a handsome dog and very friendly, so we are quite looking forward to the odd dog sitting gig here and there, not to mention some trips to the dog park with him and David.
Doc C had got a 20% off voucher from Gamestop, so we decided to peruse their used game sections, and this is really where the weekend fell apart. We bought games and then spent the rest of the weekend playing them. With "Modnation Racers" in the house there was no walking of dogs on Saturday, and certainly no walking of dogs on Sunday because I was in my pyjamas crashing into the scenery on a virtual race track in a cart that I had spent hours customising. My driver is called Rosie the Racer, she's wearing a plain white t-shirt with black capris and liberal amounts of dirt and oil. Rosie drives Sweet Rivets, which is a old fashioned jalopy with a stylin' two-tone paint job in dusty blue and dirty pink (when I work out how to get a photo of her off the game, I shall post it for you to admire).
So far I've placed 2nd to last once, and I'm usually just happy to have completed the race. I'm a terrible driver in this game (in fact in most games), but fortunately it's still really fun!
