Me, in front of my first dorm room - F-106 - 10 years later

Wife and I went down to Auburn to watch the Tigers destroy Louisiana-Monroe 52-3. We actually left Friday night and stayed at a Best Western in Alexander City, Alabama (about 30 minutes from Auburn), driving the rest of the way to Auburn the next day since kickoff was at 11am in the morning!

It was a fun game to watch, such a difference from the last couple Auburn games which haven't been decided until the final minute of the game. Afterwards, we went to Momma G's in Auburn - the original. The food at the one in Huntsville is the same, but you can't beat the atmosphere.

Unfortunately, neither of us had had very much to eat all day other than a small breakfast and some popcorn at the game. While I'm a fatty and can deal, Sarah nearly passed out in the restaurant while we waited for ah our to get our food. Thankfully, the lady behind us was diabetic and gave her some sugar pills to get her blood sugar back up.

Afterwards, we drove over to Opelika to visit [livejournal.com profile] sarakazi, [livejournal.com profile] snowmew, [livejournal.com profile] ceralor and other members of the current [livejournal.com profile] auburnfurs at Sarakazi and Mirage's house. Nice place they have there, and I got to ride with Mirage in the Lotus. And yes, we did top out at over 100mph at one point. :P

Then, it was a long, boring drive back to Huntsville. We stopped outside Birmingham and ate dinner at a Dairy Queen before continuing the rest of the way back home.

Went and saw Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole last night. Highly recommended - probably one of the best films I've seen all year. Think Lord of the Rings, but with owls. I also had no clue it was based on books - my reading list just got a little longer.

I also loved how they cast Sam Neill and Hugo Weaving, especially having Weaving in another Village Roadshow picture. I thought they both did a great job voice acting. And, music by Owl City? Perfect!
