Weekend Over Already?

Wow, it's hard to believe that my weekend is already over. Of course, I did actually work today. We don't take off days like President's Day, but we get two weeks at Christmas. Given the choice, I am quite happy with this arrangement.

I had one simple goal this weekend, go see Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I never made it. Friday, I was going to go with my friend Josh, but Josh ran into traffic coming home from work and wasn't going to make it in time. So we decided to try Sunday night. Got the theater to find out it was already sold out. I guess I'll have to try next weekend. As if I needed something else to squeeze into my weekend.

But that's not to say I didn't have a good weekend. Josh and I hung out both nights, watching Babylon 5 one night and Electra the other.

Saturday, I went down to play ultimate Frisbee. And yes, we actually had a few people show up. Three of us were there for the game, and we snagged another couple guys for a game of hot box (think half court ultimate). I do tend to play well in small spaces like that since you can't run as much. Either that or I get luckier.

Saturday night, I met up with Angelique to see Murder on the Nile, which was playing at a local theater. We really enjoyed it. I was completely wrong who done it, but Angelique got it right. Of course, she had read the book before.

The one thing I haven't been able to do is watch much in the way of the Olympics. My roommate has been watching them, but I've been trying to get other things done like books read and TV shows watched. Frankly, I don't see how I am going to find much time to watch them period. Just too much else going on and too many TV shows not breaking for the Olympics. Oh well, there's always next time, right?

How is Electra?

Why not save TV shows for later and watch the Olympics? They are fun, and this is from someone that doesn't watch regular sports at all.

I don't regularly watch sports either.

The next two months are going to be very busy for me. If I allow myself to get behind on TV, I won't be able to catch up until May or June. I just watch too many TV shows to get behind.

Some year, I am going to change that. Really.
