What an amazingly quiet weekend. I did't technically leave the house at all yesterday. I mean, I walked outside as far as the car, to grab some CDs, but that was it. I talked to three people (an RLG, eknuth, and cdent who decided to have dinner with me, but then never called. *sigh*) on the phone, and I sort of stared at my email a couple times.

Not a bad day for being on call. In fact, it wasn't really a bad week for being on call, except I really had a strong urge to get blasted (which is considered "poor form" for the on call guy).

Saturday was much the same, except for a trip out to mom & dad's to visit with Grandma. I was kinda mean at one point, interupting to remind her that the "I used to change your diapers" incident she was going on about was something that happened nearly 30 years ago.

I would love to have new happy times with Grandma. But everytime I have any communication with her at all, she hammers me with hours of "Do you remember when...." stories. Uniformly, these stories come from what I consider "the bad old days" and are memories I'd much prefer to leave far far behind. I know it's difficult for anyone that knows me to believe that I'm a happy easy goin' guy relative to what I was then, but it's true.

Friday was fun. Went out to din din and a movie with Ed, Chris, and Kira. Trojan Horse for dinner where once again *gasp* they completly and utterly failed to have the world's best desert on hand. Then we saw "Almost Famous" which I though kicked ass. Ed and I wanna see it again. Then Ed and I went to see Crooked County at the Cellar Lounge.

Didn't work on computer stuff hardly at all. Just a little light housekeeping (deleted about a gig of crap), and looking at the new CD burner, trying to work up the energy to get it working.
