Ours was a little messed up as I was already taking my brother to the game and I asked if she wanted to come.

Our first dinner & movie date was the next weekend. We saw "The Siege". A family friend was giving me garbage about the movie choice while I was getting stitched up (I took a stick to the eyebrow at a skate & shoot) the morning of the date. But, things have worked out despite the bad movie choice.

Hey, if she sat through that movie with you, it was meant to be.

I can only hope to be that fortunate.

More Bungled Bear news. FTD totally redeemed themselves. They called me back a little bit ago to apologize. They refunded the entire purchase, and offered to resend he correct item out.

Very nicely done. I would have been fine with an apology, and getting the right thing sent out, so having it done for free is a major plus. I would never have demanded that.

And we're going out to have a couple drinks before the hockey game, where she plans to rag on me about the bear in front of others.

So I think it all worked out for the best. :p

I did not read that as "Bungled Bear". Wow.

Can't wait. I was thinking it would have been amazing if I had recorded those TBS Bond marathons in the early 90s, commercials and all, and watched 'em again with the kid.

I love the day / days after Thanksgiving. One of my favs of the year. Bond marathons or Planet of the Apes marathons, putting up the decor, eating leftover delicious food, sipping Baileys... awh yeah.

So... we're purchasing a family vehicle. Did a little bit of research, and it boils down to an Equinox or a Traverse. Given the financing options and factoring in interest rates and whatnot, basically the Traverse is only another two or three grand over the Equinox.

Anyone with either have any reviews of said vehicles?

I have a Saturn Vue which is almost identical to the Equinox (I've been in and driven both). Great on gas for an SUV. Lacks the space you may need to haul things.
Example... I'm a big camping/hiking guy. With all the gear my family and I bring, I had to purchase a Thule roof rack and storage bag to gain the extra space I needed for gear.
When I get the chance I am going to buy either a traverse or Acadia. Sure the MPG is lower, but much more space to haul things around. My 2 cents.

That's why we are leaning towards the Traverse. Next August, we are driving down to Va Beach and we are taking my mom with us. So between three adults and a kiddo who will need a pack-n-play, stroller..., a larger vehicle may make more sense.

The only things I have to say about the Traverse involve some people up to things in the parking lot I park in at work. Things that now that you and Peek have a wee one won't be needing it for....

A few years back had the choice between the Equinox and the Trailblazer. Went with the bigger Trailblazer. Wish I would've kept it, but IMHO go with the bigger vehicle.

It already has...but don't try leaving the world.

I haven't raked one leaf yet. But this weekend I think it's time for the first gathering of those little buggers.

I have an 05 Trailblazer EXT. Thing is monstrous, but great on camping trips and for transporting stuff. I don't have a wife or kids, but I can imagine it would be a decent family vehicle.

Gas mileage is my only complaint, but I knew what I was getting myself into.

+1 for the Traverse

as a part time 'mechanic' I would say that the Traverse is a better vehicle

Just tried Buffalo Takeout Taxi for the first time. Food got here within an hour and was hot.

Very cool stuff, they'll get our business again. Pizza Plant PODs delivered? Uhm, yes.
