long week, sometimes relaxing, sometimes hectic...Let's just start with Tuesday here...

Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, I pretty much worked at the record store (and at the movie theatre on Sunday night).

This past weekend wasn't really all that busy (there weren't any really great releases lately either music or movie-wise in my opinion). There were some good things, sure, but definitely not A-listers!

On Tuesday, I was off and I pretty much just collapsed for the day...I caught up on my comics, since I had a bunch of backlog to get through from the previous couple of weeks. I went into the movie theatre in the early afternoon and Paul ran "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" for himself and "Starsky and Hutch" for me (before we opened). I guess it was was certainly better for being free. I'd say this one might be a rental for those of us who remember the seventies and should probably be just a "catch it on cable" for those of you who were born during the Reagan era...

That evening we went to Kris and Becky's (dinner with the "Eat This" gang being pushed back a week). We had a nice barbecue in the back yard. Burgers, hot dogs, a yummy macaroni salad made by Becky (with bacon in it). We also had some girlie beers available (I had a Bacardi O Three and regretted it...liquor and humidity/heat don't mix...).

Kris, Becky, Paul, R.J., Kristi (aka Evelyn) and I played Imaginiff. It's kind of a cross between "Apples to Apples" (in that you have to try to figure out how others are going to think) and the "therapy" portions of "Therapy" (instead of the pyschology trivia portions of it). The object is to "imagine" what a person you know would be like if he/she were, say, a tree or a cartoon character listed in a multiple choice was a fun diversion.

Afterwards, Kristi and her boyfriend headed home (as did Paul) and the rest of us played the twentieth anniversary of Trivial Pursuit...with Jarvis sitting out on the porch with us, conversing between questions...
