I was up pretty early this morning. Surprisingly, so was Mark's dad. For the first time in absolutely ages, he expressed an interest in going out for breakfast. We went out and had a nice meal. The sun was shining but it was definitely chilly. The wind has been bitterly cold recently. After we dropped him off at home, we had a couple of errands to do and decided to treat ourselves to a trip to the casino.
We usually go later in the day, this was our first visit in the morning. It's a different crowd at that time of the day and it wasn't as busy as it normally is. I was a big loser but Mark was a big winner so we ended up coming out with $25 more than we went in with. It was just enough for some cheap(er) gas from Gananoque.
It's been really nice not doing too much. We had thought about going to a movie this afternoon but instead opted to stay home and watch the DVD of Women in Love that I bought for Mark a few weeks ago. I had never seen it before but I knew it was one of his favourites. I will admit, I have not read the book and I thought that the film moved rather slowly and I fell asleep a couple of times. I'll definitely have to re-watch it though, parts of it were really excellent. Mark thoroughly enjoyed it though and said it was just as good as he remembered. That's always good when you revisit an old favourite.
One thing that made me smile today: The Simpsons. I love that Patty is finally out. It's just too bad that her fiancee turned out to be a man.
