We skilled our usual Friday date night to go to the Silver Fountain on Saturday and have dim sum for lunch. Yummy as always. My daughter devoured two pineapple buns on her own and ate a smattering of other things. As usual, the place was packed with Chinese folks. 'Nuff said about that.

I did some more cleanup outside. Mostly I binned more material that was piled up from previous weekends. I worked my way down some of the vine mounds, too.

Sunday was meh. I came down with a cold or something for the day. I spent a while playing Dragon Age 2. My staying home from church made my daughter want to stay home, but I kicked her out anyway. I didn't want any competition while staying home alone. The computer would be ALL MINE.

I watched through extended version of The Desolation of Smaug. As usual for Jackson's films, the additions made for a smoother film with more coherence, but at the cost of an even longer film. That man really has to challenge himself by making some 90 minute films.

We still haven't lined up the last two episodes of Doctor Who.
