Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer


I haven't had much luck finding time to post lately so here's a summary of the past couple weeks (with links I've been meaning to post).

Somehow it's been a pretty busy couple of weeks. I'd been vaguely planning to watch the previous Star Wars movies before Revenge of the Sith comes out but I don't think that's going to happen. I'd also had plans to watch Firefly again before seeing Serenity but that probably won't happen either.

Tuesday- Went out to the Herkimer with eriker for dinner. Nice place, cute burgers. I enjoyed the effects of the smoking ban, although it doesn't work quite so well when doors are left open. Came home and watched a little TV (interrupted at unfortunate moments by "breaking news" about a couple of planes at MSP bumping into each other which had happened hours before, stupid non-TiVo anticipating networks). I also played a little Hot Shots Golf as has been my wont lately. I like the gameplay of Mario Golf Advance a bit better but this looks great and I'm far from finishing it. The wireless multiplayer could also be fun if I ever ran into someone else with a PSP and the same game.

Monday- Worked and worked out. I'm finally back into going to the gym regularly after my recent hiatus. I tried using the elliptical machine backwards for a few minutes. It felt very unnatural but it did seem to involve different muscles.

Sunday- Mother's Day. My presents for my mother and sister-in-law were well received. (A donation to the CBLDF and some tiny iPhoto books of my niece.) A walk around Como Lake was considered but the weather was looking a little threatening.

Saturday- Got up, did a little cleaning/organizing around the house then ran a few errands before getting together with monstersocks' family for dinner.

Friday- After one set of plans didn't work we ended up heading out to Red Robin in Shoreview for dinner. My burger was impressively rare/uncooked. The manager ended up coming by and ordering me a new one (and not charging me for either). Very good service on that side of things (the waiter was somewhat inattentive most of the time but didn't do anything particularly wrong). monstersocks' Boca Burger seemed appropriately cooked as did the fried zucchini.

Thursday- Caught up on some TV from that week (Lost, House and Survivor) while installing Tiger on my laptop and making jelly bean rice krispy treats with monstersocks.

Wednesday- Worked out at the gym then dropped by jodi's new place for dinner and furniture assembly.

Tuesday- Went to sleep ridiculously early.

Sunday- Had dinner at The Malt Shop where my iron stomach was defeated by their poor cooking skills. In happier news I made it over to briangee's for a while.
