Wow, this weekend rocked!
Friday night, djedi and I went out with wildrice13 and abstractseaweed to see the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie at the new Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar. It was a rollicking good time - we got a free Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster (that wasn't very strong, but still good) while we were waiting in line, and once we got in they were showing scenes from the old BBC TV series. Then a guy came up and djedi won a few towels for being one of the few people in the theater to own all 5 books, the BBC TV series and the original radio broadcasts. I was so proud!
The movie itself was good - I thought it was a pretty good adaptation of the book and radio broadcasts. Some jokes did noticeably fall flat, although some of that was probably because we had seen many of the jokes right before the movie. I would definitely see it again. (oh, and I loved the performance of Slartibartfast!)
After the movie we came back to our place and played a game of Witch Trial, then they left and we went to sleep kinda exhausted.
Saturday morning we got up and headed downtown to do my audition for ASMC. It went decently - the singing was OK (I was too nervous when actually singing), the choreography was pretty bad, but the reading of the script went pretty well. Right afterwards we headed down to Houston for Chris and Lisa's wedding shower.
I've never been to a wedding shower, so I didn't really know what to expect. It was fun, though - food was eaten, games were played, chatting was done. Afterwards we went over to cifarelli's and hung out for a while, ordered pizza, and eventually went to Taurian to get Melody's bellybutton pierced. The rest of the night was just hanging out at home chatting, and going to bed a bit too late again.
Sunday morning was church, lunch, and then Dawn's baby shower. Again, I've never been to a baby shower, but it was pretty fun as well. Right afterwards we left for Austin, and spent the rest of the evening at home, although we did watch the new Family Guy (verdict: pretty good, especially for a first episode).
So I'm still a little tired, but I had a good time and it was neat to see people again. Hooray!

So here at work, I saw an ad up in one of the elevators the other day talking about an unemployed monkey who was available for hire (Bobo could do chores around the house, wait in lines and whatnot). It was very bizarre. I'm guessing that it wasn't real, but who knows?
