Backlog

It seems like I’ve hardly stopped moving since Saturday..

Friday:

Party for local friend who passed the exam for night grad school. We had dinner at a slightly fancy mexican restaurant, and then went to see XXX. Which is thankfully not at all what it sounds like… :^) What it is, is a spy movie with extreme sports stunts. Kind of fun, but hardly high cinema. Got back after midnight though, so I was kind of tired for a few days.

Saturday:

Dawdled around in the morning, and then did errands in the afternoon. Wrapped them up on the way to the Saturday night gaming group.

Sunday:

Got up and started refreshing my directions to the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Got there over an hour after it opened, and was annoyed to find that there were still lines for the ticket booths. I guess it was their last day of the season… ;^) Did a fairly quick look around, mainly looking at he sword booths. They really don’t do the style that my martial arts uses, though. Listened to a group called Waking Maggie, and bought a CD. Overall pretty good stuff, although I don’t really care for their rendition of Rocky Road to Dublin. You see, it’s a rather fast song. The one I like has two singers – not only does this sound good, but it gives the people a chance to breathe. In the new one the poor woman is tripping over herself trying to spit all the words out fast enough. ;^)

Left somewhat early, for a faire, and went home. Took a shower, and headed off to the martial arts award banquet. I wasn’t getting anything this time around, but I knew several people who were.

Monday:

Work. Martial arts class.

Tuesday:
Work. LJ Meetup, Chicago. Saw one of two people I had hoped, sort of got introduced to a few others. Mostly failed the socialization thing. Random new person showed up on friend-of, who doesn’t ring any bells. Haven’t investigated yet. (See this post for explanation.)

Wednesday:

Work. Martial arts class.

Thursday:

Probably have to skip the game club tonight to get ready for this weekend.

Friday:

Leaving in morning to visit friends and got to Shakopee Ren Faire
