Yesterday: "Start" of work. After dinner at Dave & Busters (second Friday in a row) -- we all played Pod Racer. Midnight showing of Road to Perdition. Very good. Been a while since Paul Newman has starred in a movie. My synopsis: the problem with casting Newman and Hanks is that the rest of the actors feel like actors. Very are both very good at what they do.
Today: Tore the washing machine apart. There is no sign: "No User Servicable Parts". This machine is from the generation where that wasn't true; where men were men, and who could take a simple machine apart, reroute all the plumbing (etc), and put it back to together. This is did, and... the machine (still?) works! (for those not familiar, I am very unmechanically inclined) I did laundry today, with my own machines.
Then I loaded up the contents of my (well stocked) kitchen into The Ride, including a box with all of my (unwrapped, unpadded, closely packed) glassware. Despite a couple of bad sounds, everything made it ok, and it all fit in the new kitchen. I don't think I've ever concentrated on driving as much as the ride over -- mine is not a soft, cushy driver by default. Sporty suspension, etc.
Then I went to a party in a bar, hanging out with Fay and a bunch of random frisbee personalities.
are you saying Jude Law did not steal the show?

Yes, I am.

I liked this movie, too.
Presumably the reason you took it apart was that it wasn't working, right?
Speaking of parts and mechanically inclined, do you still have your 505 battery somewhere?
It must be nice to have life.

It needed a connector added to one of the tubes... or at least, that was the start of the mess.
Um... yes. It is probably in the bag of broken vaio pieces at bad_faerie
's old place. I'll inquire.
I've heard it said that it is. I'm not sure I know.
So that reminds me. Does [Unknown LJ tag] ever actaully post anymore?
Well, my weekend involved nothing remotely approaching social, whereas you've seem to been very active on that front, so in the scheme of things you have significantly more of a claim on a life than I do.

My weekend summary:
saturday: slept until 4 or 5. Ate. Slept a few more hours. Showered, drove to lab and picked up my laptop, returned to my room. checked email, slept.
sunday: woke up at 3. made sandwich. went back to sleep. played on laptop. went back to sleep. showered, played on laptop, watched tv, went back to sleep.
So I was more productive with my weekend. But I think on the whole we came in about equal when it came to having any sort of life. Still from what it sounds like, you've got stuff happening in Pittsburgh.

that's the sort of thing that you're supposed to post in your own lj.

But that would be giving in. Never give up, Never surrender!

I don't keep my own journal.

She's been in a bit of a scramble lately. I'll get her back on.
...barely worth it.
