That's the best word to describe the weekend. I hardly left the couch. Given that Friday was both my birthday and the day of a giant ice storm, really there was no need to leave the house. Mr. Geeky went out for provisions (including a birthday cake) and we all hunkered down for a long winter's (?!) night. We did venture to the mall the next day so that I could buy some clothes. In typical Geeky family fashion, my birthday presents were Geeky: a recorder and an FM tuner for my iPod. The rest of the weekend, I played The Sims, something I haven't done in a long time. Unfortunately, the husband kept losing his job, the kid wouldn't do her homework, and eventually the kid was taken away by DHS. Might have had something to do with her seeing her mom making out with another man in the grocery store. (Hey, ultimate satisfaction depended on her keeping up 3 different love affairs, not easy with a hubby and kid in tow).

It feels good to clear your head like that and not do anything remotely cerebral. I have a tendency in my off time to read important stuff and do work. (Or do housework, which didn't happen this weekend either.) So now Monday's here and it's back to the cerebral.
