So it was a busy if rather pleasant weekend. Had Friday "off" which really entailed me cooking for most of the day making a stew and then chicken ginger buns for a party Saturday, then running out to do as many shopping errands as I could before the temperature dropped (at which I was only moderately successful)
Saturday there was a house warming/holiday/birthday party going on up in Nashua for most of the evening. So decided to head up there early so we could take a look at an old saab 900 convertible I saw online for not too terribly much. Of course me, not having been at work or really online/tv at all on Friday...I had no idea about the ice storms, as they really didn't touch us in Arlington at all. Driving up it was like we crossed some sort of line near the NH border. Suddenly Everything was covered in ice. Then we got to nashua and out of the car....DEAR LORD it was cold. Absolutely fridgid. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, given the weather) the convertible sold only yesterday. On the market for months...of course it sells just before I take a look! lol. Guess I'm not really in a rush though. I'll keep looking til I find an old convertible for around 5k with under 100k miles. In this economic climate, I think it'll turn up eventually!
Anyway, so we headed over to the party which was really fun. Got to see and hang out with several people I haven't seen alot of recently, as well as a few that I do. Ate much food, played a strange boardgame called Dirt (at which I was vastly amused ONLY Pat guessed that I would have tasted edible undies) watched bad yet amusing snl timberlake music videos including jizz in my pants and dick in a box (and its non snl sequel my box in a box) and gave a short instructional on how a clock can work with no batteries. Much fun and definately requires a sequel!
Then sunday was braving more shopping and going over to Scott and Tonya's to visit with them and the boys. I think Johnboy's grown a foot since october O.o We ate the 2nd pumpkin pie I'd frozen at thanksgiving which I'm happy to say still came out quite tasty (real pumpkin, no canned...its the way to go!) Then came home, played a bit of WoW, then bed.
All and all a rather satisfying, if maybe not overly productive weekend. Now it's back to work and a day packed full of meetings. This isn't as insane as last xmas was around here actually...but I can see the storm a comin! I expect work to explode any day now.
Hmm...and that's what she wrote :)
