Fun weekend, although yesterday was more of a "Whatever" Sunday than anything else...

Friday night I met up with K and some other friends and saw my friends in Milquetoast, a great funk-jam-dance band. It was my first night in a bar since I quit smoking, and I'm pleased to report that I did quite well, thank you very much - I drank a little more than I normally would, but I didn't smoke, and I wasn't jonesing too hard, either.

Saturday morning K and I woke up and ordered in some yummy breakfast from the kick-ass diner near her apartment; then, for some strange reason, we watched the "Poltergeist" DVD that I had bought for her earlier in the week. It actually holds up rather well, even if the special effects are a little dated.

Saturday afternoon I met up with the newly-relocated katiesp, which was awesome; we had sushi and sake for lunch, and then we meandered around the Village for a few hours. She bought, among other things, a Jesus Action Figure, which is, as you can imagine, pretty kick-ass. (It has "Gliding Action".) I ended up succumbing to my slavish desires and bought 3 DVDs - "Goonies", "Silence of the Lambs", and "Waiting for Guffman".

Sunday was, pardon the pun, shitty. I think my stomach had a delayed reaction to the sushi. I did not move much. I wanted to help my brother move in to his new dorm, but I could not. I wanted to meet up with K after her rehearsal, but I could not. I basically sat on my couch and played my baseball game until my eyes couldn't take it anymore - but my eyes put up a good fight. Hours were spent and lost to that game. I finished my shortened season at 20-2, and swept the playoffs (Bernie Williams hit .724 with 13 homers and 29 rbis in 11 post-season games). And then my roommate and I watched some of the extra stuff on the "Silence of the Lambs" DVD - there's an hour-long 'making-of' documentary, among other things.

Today I'm temping at that old stodgy law firm, but at least their coffee is better and their computer network isn't insane. Not sure about the rest of the week, though.

  • Farewell, LJ

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
