Weekend Update

It was a bit of a crazy weekend but I managed to survive relativelly unharmed. I spent a majority of the day on Saturday and Sunday reading for class. I did get most of it done but I'm still only on Act 2 of Hamlet and I still have a few pages of that philosophy reading to finish!

On Friday night we went to the casione out in Richmond. This this is MASSIVE. I managed to lose $40 before I finally hit a bit of a pot on one of the nickel machines and won $38. I was a happy camper and cashed out immediately. So, I really only lost $2. Not too bad for 5 hours of play! I must say, I was a bit miffed by the fact that they don't give you coins at cash out any more. The machines now print a voucher with your amount printed on it. Also, I dind't find one machine that would accept coins. It was a bit weird and not really what I would chose to do on a Friday night. I think it'll be a long time before I go back there.

I did manage to "sneak" out of the house Saturday night to spend some time with Steph, Vernie and Sonya at a little shindig over at Steph's place. It was really nice, just the girls hanging out. I needed to take a time out and that was perfect.

Suday afternoon I watched the last 4 episodes of "Firefly" (which the MIL gave me for my upcoming B-day!). As if I really need something else to be totally enamoured with, I am now a fan of this unlikely 'winner' of a series. One of the girls from my bookcrossing group has been talking about this for a while and I finally broke down and looked it up. It sounded interesting so for a couple of weeks I tried to find a copy of the complete series DVD at Blockbuster but none of them carried it. Dan knew I was getting a bit frustrated so when he and his mom went shopping on the holiday Monday, she picked up a copy of the DVD's for me! Now, I can't believe it's over! I was extremely dissappointed to come to the end when I was totally getting into it! The only good thing here is that the BDM will be out September 30! WOOHOO!

wiccachicky: I know eh? I am totally psyched! The local browncoats are doing a big group event to watch the flick on opening night. I'm reallly excited. I've made Dan buy a nice Hawaiian shirt and I'm trying to find one of the funky touques like the one Jane wears. There's a patter for it kicking around but I can't crochet. I can do almost any craft but that!
