Wonderful Early Father's Day

 We've got some neighborhood commitments on Father's Day, so my family decided to celebrate an early Father's Day today, just for me.

My one concession to the family was to go with them to The Karate Kid, and it turned out to be better than I thought it would be.  (I didn't have any high hopes.  That Smith family is pretty good.  It's a little annoying.)

I spent some of the afternoon reading at home, then went to a Starbucks, got an ice mocha, and nursed it while reading a dead-tree book, Daemon.  I was the only person there without a laptop.

When I got home, the family was waiting for me to play Rock Band with them.  (We don't have a good drummer, but you can't have everything, I guess.  We mostly kept drums on easy.)

It was pretty much my ideal Father's Day.  Gonna go wrap it up with an episode of Breaking Bad or the Moribito anime.
