weekend in brief

- friday night had a little gathering, thanks to judithiscariot for hosting some people. very relaxing. we also got to order chinese without using the phone. felt moody at the end, so i went up to check out the second tv, on which i saw h.r. puffnstuff for the first time. whoah.

- saturday i went to medieval times to celebrate the birthday of tzel. it was not as bad as i thought it would be (the spectacle, i mean), although they do hold you upside down by your ankles and shake to make sure they have drained you absolutely dry before you leave. a disturbing amount of stereotypical man-children were in attendance, as well as the conventional children. although i confess the guy next to me made the whole thing that much more enjoyable by being so enthusiastic he almost exploded. also, the falconry display made me cry. the food was better than expected. afterwards we retired to tzel's for cake, which was DAMN FINE. kudos and thanks to thatwhichisgene for being awesome.

- oh also on saturday jack got me presents. a copy of windows xp and a new hard drive and CD-RW/DVD drive. and he installed it all and made it happen. he's awesome. we also ate at olive garden (i don't think i've been there in maybe 2 years?) where we found a gorgonzola steak pasta dish that we couldn't stop talking about. still can't, apparently. anyways, jack is the bomb. he starts a new job today... good luck baby!

- sunday i had softball practice. my right leg took a beating, one full-speed ball to the shin, one to the knee, and one 200-pound dude stepped on my leg when it happened to intersect with 2nd base. i have NO idea how my leg didn't break. none. anyways, i'm sore all over and it feels good. it is also clearly time to quit smoking. later met up with folks at the red robin. i would like to heartily endorse any food that involves fried onion straw thingys.

It's always time to quit smoking. :)

Quitting smoking is a good thing for people to do, but I am certainly not going to ask anyone but myself. Okay and maybe Jack. Because if he keeps smoking, it will be hard to stop!

thank you so much!!! because the more i look at catholic's program, the more the little bits of catholicism needle me. not to mention, it's probably ten times more expensive.

psst... what's your email? she said she's been getting a lot of spam lately, so i figured i'd just send you both an "introductory" email so she actually gets your questions. >;) but she said she'd be happy to talk to you about it.

I am pro-Red Robin, in general.

Their food is so, so good.

However, they have the worst lighting fixtures ever. I actually filled out the comment card because of this. The table we were at (and those surrounding us) had these weird lamps that only shone little concentrated circles of light in the middle of the table, making it difficult to see your food or the people you are eating with. I mean, mood lighting in a swanky restaurant? Sure. Mood lighting in a noisy burger joint chock full of children? Oy.

I second the comment re: onion straws. So tasty.

oh, and you didn't mention how incredibly noisy it is in there. i wouldn't go back based merely on that.

Oh geez, how did I forget that part?

These places need birthday rooms. SOUNDPROOF birthday rooms.

At least they don't have the tambourines like Chevy's. *shudder*

Now on deck, smokin' a Lucky ...
In the hazy days of my youth, I played intramural softball at college during the summers. Once, I had a couple of beers and a couple of smokes before the game. I went 4 for 4 with 3 RBIs. I also cleanly handled the two fielding chances I had and I scooped up everything thrown at me for put outs at 1st bag. For the rest of that summer, my training regimen consisted of drinking at least three beers and smoking at least four cigarettes an hour before each game. My batting average that summer was somewhere north of .700. (that's pretty damn good for summer intramural league UMCP) We also won our division's championship for both summer sessions.

DUDE. I've been trying to rent a copy of H&R's PuffnStuff for 2.5 years. Eventually I will give in and buy it cheap off the internet.
