This weekend... My house
Movies, books, nerdy stuff... Who's in? I am itching for something to do and figuring out what to do is step one. I have the nerdy travel books, the internet and places for a number of butts to sit.

Who's in? If no one is game, I am going to go nuts and book a trip to NYC.

I have two books: "Florida, Off the Beaten Path. A guide to unique places" and "More One Tank Trips with Bill Murphy".

Now that I have my house back in order, I would be happy to host a movie night and we can look at the books together.

So... Movies anyone?
