Of course, luck would have it that he's not at work today, but I did learn of his lunch plans. When I finally made it home I found that my mom was planning to take us out for lunch, so I ingeniously proposed to meet Conrad at his lunch destination. Of course, it didn't stop there. At Mcdonalds, we wound up standing around, nobody had anything important to do, and we all clearly wanted to hang out for a more extended period.
So my mom took us all to Raleigh! The main goal of the trip was to go to the Apple Store; she was getting a replacement i-Pod NANO, and purchasing an i-Pad mini. As Conrad and I grew bored of messing with Garage Band instruments in the store, we strolled the mall until there wasn't an interesting store left which we hadn't visited.
Most notably, to me, was the fact that, in the food court, I saw a little girl with a Build-a-Bear Workshop box. Except, hanging out of the box wasn't some cute, fluffy teddy bear. Instead... I saw Rainbow Dash!
So instead, Connor wrote something!
Anyway, we eventually saw Wreck-it-Ralph. I think it was really good! I nearly cried about twice during the movie, and it had its humor moments. Connor asked me to rate it from 1-10 and I gave it an 8.5. That's for being awesome, but not quite the best. Also, those old video game reference gave me a chill of nostalgia... And I was not expecting an Owl City song on the credits!
Also, both on the way to and from Raleigh, I played Minecraft on my netbook! Surprisingly enough, my single-player world was running at less than 50% of my total CPU, and I still had a fourth of my battery when I got home! This laptop is surprisingly resilient for my purposes.
Anyway, I was designing a "roundabout" rail station for the public rail network on Nova Mundi. Care for a screenshot? Yes? No? Well, you're getting one.
