First, I should note that I'm finally starting to use tags, for those that follow such things. I've also updated my photo album with a few things, including Christmas and New Year's Eve.
Right, so, on to the weekend:
Having nothing better to do on a Friday night (and Silvia got last-minute tickets to see "Wicked" with a friend in DC), we met up with Steve and finally got to meet his new "friend" (not sure what their status is) Derrick. We had dinner at Petruzzi's, went to Bob Evans for dessert to bother Matthew, and then Steve and Derrick went home 'cause Steve was more than a little drunk, so we stormed Matthew's place after he got off work and watched Testosterone, which looked much better on the DVD cover than it actually was.
Saturday we finally got the whole gang together and we gave them our Christmas gifts. Edward came down from DC, and Matthew, Steve, Silvia, Derrick, Q and I all met up at Ruby Tuesday's where they all got very large margaritas, and we gave them our gifts (I went the gift card route, and Q got everything from the HRC store). Edward had gotten everyone something from a fancy soap store he found in New York. It was very nice, and a lot of fun (the restaurant was surprisingly quiet, so we hung out for quite a while), and Matthew was so moved that we thought of him that he cried. Such a goober. :) Afterwards we again stormed Matthew's place, and ended up watching Queens of Comedy, and there's nothing quite like watching black female comediennes with a bunch of gay guys. :D
Sunday Edward and Q let me sleep in so they went to breakfast without me, then afterwards we did some shopping, then Edward left and Q and I putzed around the house for the rest of the day. (I think we watched a movie, but I can't remember which one.)
Yesterday I was up earlier than usual and got a lot of stuff done, including following up on my new job (no, they haven't given it to me yet - they delayed because of the holidays, and they're probably going to start setting up interviews for next week, which I'm sure is purely a formality). I also found out one job I applied to at St. Mary's College has been filled, but the other is open and they said they'll be in touch as they move forward, so that's good. After Q got home we ended up watching Eddie Izzard's Unrepeatable since I've never seen his stuff and figured I'd start from the beginning.
We've been watching lots of movies lately - Madagascar, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, etc. Between the stuff we got for Christmas, various seasons of TV shows we have (Q's currently watching Friends, and I want to watch Farscape) and NetFlix, we're having much fun. I've also been playing a lot of City of Heroes and Serious Sam II lately (much to Q's annoyance), and enjoying them as well (Green Starburst is up to level 33).
So tonight Edward is coming down again because this weekend they're all going to a wedding in Florida (I can't afford to go - bah!) and Q got them discount tickets on base for Walt Disney World (double bah!) so Edward's coming down to pick them up (he leaves tomorrow, Q leaves Friday). Since Q will be gone and I have to drive him all the way up to BWI, it looks like I'm going to stop off for dinner at gingy and weirddave's for dinner, then probably head up to Mom's for the weekend (since I'm halfway there as it is), then pick Q up on my way back on Monday morning.
So, um, that's it. :)
