Well that’s a mouthful.
Weekend flew by for me– Friday night, Michelle and I went over to The House On Dousman for Justin’s birthday observation. It was a nice time; Marcia & Todd made an unexpected appearance, so it was cool to talk with them for the first time since they got hitched. There were libations aplenty, and Michelle made cake. We couldn’t stay really late, because she had to get up early to judge a cheer competition.
On Saturday, I had some plans to work on a little computer biz at my house, but I got an call from the Poquettes who needed backup on a short babysitting gig– Kilian and Harper had some overlapping zoo classes, so I met up with them there and watched Abe for an hour or so. He’s a very low-maintenence baby; took him about 20 minutes to fall asleep, then I just milled around the zoo for a while until Amanda called to say Harper’s class was done. The zoo trip worked to my advantage, as I was able to miss the majority of the Badgers’ drubbing at the hands of Iowa.
Later in the evening on Saturday, we met up with Michelle’s friend Amisha and her (relatively new) financee, Ajay. I hadn’t met him before. We had a good time at Vox on Prospect, where the atmosphere is pretty smokey, but also quiet enough to talk. They also have movies going in the background all the time there. For me, it’s a good way to keep time at the bar without looking at your watch: “We’ve been here for Princess Bride and half of Team America? Shit, it’s gotta be pretty late…”
On Sunday, I got around to working on some of that computer stuff and did laundry. I was pretty happy to note that I was just about able to migrate my home server over to a new machine without having to call Joe every five minutes with questions. There are a couple things that are still left to do, but I was glad to have been able to install the new system, import all the old user accounts & various server settings without incident.
I wanted to head over to Grandma’s house to help out with yard work, but I ran out of time. Now it looks like it’s going to rain the rest of today, but it’s supposed to be nice on Tuesday and Wednesday. Maybe by Wednesday, the leaves would be dry enough over there and I could give it another shot.
