A device-free weekend

This weekend, I did something I haven't done in a while (if ever). I left my laptop at work, and I promised myself to not touch a keyboard all weekend. When my phone's battery died on Saturday morning, and I realized I'd left my charger at work, I decided to go no-devices all the way. Of course, I still watched TV and enjoyed my car stereo, but being computer-free felt liberating. It was an awesome weekend, and I'm thinking about doing it from now on.

Saturday, Julie and I had a great time watching Superman, IMAX, in 3D. It was killer. The whole movie wasn't 3D, but the 4 scenes in 3D were incredible. I highly recommend it. On Sunday, we had kickass seats to The International thanks to Virtuas. We sat on the 18th hole and watched golf while getting free cocktails served to us for several hours. It didn't suck by any means.
