Man Stuff, Six Months and 10th Anniversaries
Today, I felt like a man. It's not often that I get to feel like a big manly man. I'm a stay at home dad that doesn't do much in the way of man work anyway, so when I get to get all masculine, it's kind of a treat.
- Went to Home Depot and bought a big ass shovel and a rake thingy and a propane tank.
- Drove home from Home Depot on the back roads of Edmonds and Shoreline to make sure I didn't get stuck in the horrendous ferry traffic.
- Found a barbecue on Craigslist, haggled about the price with the seller and then got a good deal on a gigantic, beautiful, stainless steal grill that I will be cooking lots and lots of meat on.
What does any of this have to do with Lebowski Friday? Nothing at all. I just wanted to write about those things AND, since I've been slacking on the Lebowski Friday posts, bring just a little bit of Dude news to you...
On September 9th, Universal will release this sweet 10th anniversary edition of The Big Lebowski.
Now, I'm no collector. In fact, I hate the way that the studios prey upon the die hard fans of movies by putting out these so called "collectors editions" every couple years without doing much more than upgrading the packaging. But let's be honest with ourselves, shall we? That bowling ball package is pretty awesome. I may have to break down and purchase that bad boy.
Thanks to martymankins (I think that's who it was) for pointing this out to me, like, two or three weeks ago.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to drool over my humongous barbecue. It's nearly midnight...should I really grill myself up something this late? Hmmm...
