Jump-Starting the Economy

This past weekend, I headed to Long Island to visit my parents and buy my new 40" HD TV and Blu-ray player at P.C. Richard. My parents came along, which i good, because I don't drive. Afterwards, we went to Bob's Discount Furniture, where I bought an oak TV stand. The TV stand will be delivered the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which means I will be back in town on Friday night. The TV and Blu-ray player will be delivered and installed on December 1--I took the day off from work!

Bob's Discount Furniture had a coy pond in the lobby and free Häagen Dazs Ice Cream and  assorted candy! My Mom and I had some; My Dad doesn't really have a sweet tooth! We had a late lunch/early dinner at the Cheesecake Factory! We shared a chicken dumpling appetizer. I had a Mojito, Mahi Mahi tacos and a slice of Key Lime Cheesecake and a cup of coffee for dessert!

If that wasn't enough adventure, I called my brother to see if he wanted to check out Quantum of Solace. We caught a 7:00PM show on Saturday night; we both thought the movie has some good, fun moments, but liked Casino Royale better.  He got us a discount on the tickets with his grad school student ID, my treat.
