There really wasn't much to say about the weekend except... ahhhhh! It was very relaxed and mostly spent at home. Saturday we ventured out of town to go grocery shopping and Sunday I had to run into work to swap out a couple of programs for Monday morning, but otherwise we stayed home and just enjoyed the downtime.
Yesterday was awesome. After work ciliandis
came up and told us she wanted to treat us to dinner. She wanted to celebrate a year of being friends and helping her keep her sanity, which was very nice of her. We went out in search of pyrbennu
after trying to call and getting no response. After a failed attempt to find her, we ran into her by chance and dragged her along with us, though she was very confused at first. It was such a nice day and ciliandis
was feeling like driving so we took off for Meredith.
But first, I must interrupt to speak of this uncanny knack ciliandis
and I have for saying the same words at the same time with the same inflection. Yesterday as we were leaving my office we ended up doing just this sort of thing twice. It ended up happening a couple more times during the evening. It's maddening! But it's the awesome fun type of maddening.
Along the way to Meredith we had to decide where we were going to eat. The new Cactus Jack's
came up so we decided instead to head for Laconia. It's one of two of these "southwest" style restaurants linked to the T-Bones chain. The food was very tasty! We all got taquitos to share before our meal. painted_wolf
and I ordered the Mango Tango Enchiladas. They had crab meat and were topped with mango salsa. Mmmmmm! pyrbennu
ordered Haddock Tacos and a Psychadelic Margarita. As she got a bit silly from the booze, painted_wolf
had fun with innuendos about her dinner. I don't remember what ciliandis
ordered except that it had chicken in it. It looked very yummy, though! For dessert we all ended up sharing fried ice cream. Thank you again so much Ang!
After that we headed to Joann's Fabric to browse the fabrics and craft supplies. They have so many really cool fabrics! painted_wolf
of course found the seed beads and was stuck there for a bit. pyrbennu
ended up looking through patterns while the rest of us browsed about. We finally joined her and had a lot of fun just looking through patterns and sharing our favorites. We noticed they were closing up so we went for the door. Apparently the woman working didn't realize we were still there and was startled to see four people suddenly get up and walk out. We had some fun imagining what it would be like to be stuck in a craft store all night. We figured we'd just pull out the sewing machines, grab some cloth and patterns and start making stuff. Why not?
After that we returned to Plymouth, dropped pyrbennu
off so she could pester and swoon over lordpagus
(her boyfriend) and we went to WalMart. We had some fun just wandering about there, too, and then decided to go around closing time. We went back to the laundry, watch The Colbert Report and then parted company for the evening.
It was wonderful hanging out with Ang and celebrating a year of friendship. Just so you know, Ang, we may have helped you keep your sanity, but you have also helped me keep mine. One of the best happenstances to come from Geeks & Gamers was the opportunity to meet you and I am truly grateful. Thanks for a wonderful time!
Also, she and Al are celebrating three years together today, so Happy Anniversary!"Friendship is rare. Do you know what I'm saying to you? Friendship is rare." - Tenacious D
