I've Sure Enjoyed the Rain

One minute you're waiting for the sky to fall, the next you're dazzled by the beauty of it all...

Two good nights in a row.

Friday's dinner at Cheesecake Factory was good, and smaller than anticipated (good for lessening my anxieties) and only one person I didn't know on a personal level. Superman Returns after was less familiar people, but not awkward because we were only sitting together in a dark space (no interactions necessary). The movie was alright. I don't like the IMAX format much and the 3D was undesirable and worse...unnecessary. I'd like to see the film again in a traditional format before I bash it entire. It wasn't as bad as Spider-Man 2, but it was blandish and the plot seemed to take a back seat to the detail of characters and interactions. Cool, but boring.

Today, Patty tried to get me to hang out down in Deerfield, but because the plan was sketchy at best, I bailed in favor of watching the France vs. Brazil World Cup game. Patty called later with a slightly more solidified plan, so I ventured out and ended up playing cards at Maplewood Park and then going to Bennigan's for a late dinner. Decent discussion was had, including on the topic of Superman Returns and I have an unofficial plan to watch the original three (and maybe the fourth, if we're feeling adventurous) Superman movies. It's also possible that I have plans for the 4th of July. Rock.

And now, I'm a bit tired, so I'll be watching the rest of the France/Brazil game (I TiVo'ed it...France is currently up 1-0 in my world) and then getting to bed.

Notes to self:
- Make important phone calls (especially the ones to UCF)
- Decide on life plan
- Hunt down Laura and Candace to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest this week (Thursday at midnight?)
  • Current Music
    Lovers in a Dangerous Time - Barenaked Ladies
Johnny Depp - Captain Jack

"But why is the rum gone?!"

Plans for the week:

Monday - Work. Deerfield fireworks at 8pm with Patty and (hopefully) others.
Tuesday - No work!!! Possibly causing trouble at Bridgette's.
Thursday - Midnight screening of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (either with Laura and Candace or my sister).
Friday - Potential second viewing of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (with the party with which I did not previously see it -- grammar sucks).

Email, call, text, IM, or otherwise communicate with me if you have an interest in joining in any of these festivities. Most especially the Deerfield folks around here.
