The weekend and this week

Collapse )

Yesterday got off to a bad start - folks delayed to meetings by "weather" (or what passes for it out here), a couple people called out sick, had to schedule a last-minute meeting, had to make sure the luncheon got set up right... Oy. Met a way cute catering guy, though. :) I did take a moment to e-mail the guy I met at the Center when I dropped off the checks Friday night (see above), Johnny Wong, who gave me his business card "as a receipt." He called me back on the way home and we made a date for Friday night. I stopped at Target, checked out the store closing sale at Wherehouse (nothing worth buying), found myself to be a tad worm out so I took a nap when I got home, got up, wok'd up some garlic chicken leftovers, and finally got around to watching "Star Wars: Episode 2 - Attack of the Clones." Frankly, I couldn't figure out why everyone panned this movie. Yes, Christian Hayden certainly isn't Alec Guiness in his scope of acting (or even Ewan McGregor for that matter), and the dialogue is a little stilted, but for the epic it is supposed to be, I can forgive all that. The special effects were amazing (Yoda was particularly well done), Christopher Lee is great, and it's a fun universe to play in. A couple of plot holes, but nothing worse than most films anymore. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say I liked Ep. 2 better than Ep. 1. I'm eager to see how the trilogy plays out, and how it weaves its way into Ep. 4. I can see an all-day Star Wars marathon coming up when Ep. 3 comes out on DVD. :)

Today Debbi was being weird about the Umbrella Group and Pride Guides (accused me of talking about private budget info when she'd already sent off an e-mail to everyone that she forgot she sent, and wanting to get together to "make sure we're on the same page" as far as the relationship between PG and UG goes, which I already understand, but whatever - I'm flexible). We were also informed that we're moving up the hall this week, by Friday. I was also feeling a little dizzy and light-headed for some reason, so while I was eating some peanut butter crackers to wake me up... GAH! My filling came out! :( I go in on Friday to get it replaced and meet my new dentist for the first time. No plans tonight.

For the rest of the week:

* Wednesday - game night
* Thursday - no plans
* Friday - dentist appointment in the afternoon, date with Johnny
* Saturday - cancelled volleyball with GAMNET, meet before coffee about Pride, coffee, dinner, and possibly see "Charlie's Angels" with Yudi
* Sunday - 5-minute GAMbit (a dating party sponsored by GAMNET)
* Monday - meet w/Debbi after work

Next weekend is supposed to be Westercon, but I thought the ticket prices were too high and was waiting for them to go down, but while I was waiting, they went UP. :( Not good. I really need to go. Maybe I can find a weekend special. Bah.

I got another reminder about Broadway San Diego tickets - "Mamma Mia" goes on sale tomorrow. I haven't even gotten my tickets to "Aida" yet. David's being a weenie, too, so I may end up going alone. Blah.
