The weekend was pretty good, if relaxed.
Friday, it was off to movies with the gang to see Planet of the Apes. I liked it, overall, though I thought the ending was silly. Of course, I have not seen the original movie, nor have I read the book, and I hear if I had, it would have not been so silly.
But the acting was good, and I liked the effects.
I went home with the plan to return MN's steamcleaner of doom, but he never returned my call, so I'll get it to him when he gets back from down state. No worries there.
I then had plans to do some stuff around the house, but I was so tired, I was tucked in bed asleep by 10 pm or so.
Saturday was a wonderfully lazy day. I had many plans to clean the house, but nary a one got done. Ah well. I slept in until 10 am, a good 12 hours sleep, then got up, read some of The DownBelow Station by C.J. Cherryh, and watched the Cubs game for a while.
Mid-game, I had to make a grocery run. This was, as Murphy would have it, the time when lvglenn came on to play You Don't Know Jack. Alas. We shall have to trivia-lize another day.
Then it was back home to finish watching the game, and watch the cubs lose, so sad. But, after the game, I saw a commercial for The Princess Diaries; it was a movie I'd wanted to see, but with Original Sin and Rush Hour 2 coming out, I didn't know if I'd get to see it this weekend. So I paged zen_raven, who was out by the theater already, and we went to see it.
I cut it close -- by the time I got to the theater, the movie was totally sold out. I resorted to the method of buy-a-ticket-for-another-movie-and-sneak-i
The movie was very disney, and cute. I liked it, and came out with that warm-feel-goodness. It was also a good time to see Hector Elizando in his softie-security role, too.
I'll have to elaborate on Sunday later, as I just answered the phone (something not to do at 5:30 pm), and got stuck fixing something at work.
