Busy memorial day weekend

by on May.31, 2005, under General

Let’s see, started off fairly relaxing, had some beers with some friends, stayed up wayyyy too late, slept in wayyy late the next day. I ended up playing some pool, and having a good ol’ time of things. Been a while since I’ve just been able to kick back, relax, hang out with some friends. Was a lot of fun smile The next day was even more fun – went to an awesome concert smile

Saturday night initially started off with more relaxing, and then a trip to the Bluenote to listen to a band called Carbon Leaf with roommate (known as Roadkill). This band ROCKS – SERIOUSLY, check them out. I can’t say that enough: they are AWESOME. Over the last several months (I first bought their cd off of iTunes back in July, 2004) they’ve about become my favorite band. I love the lyrics, the way the guitar is played, the bass, as well as the skill of all the instrumentalists, and just the overall quality of music the band plays. The lead singer has excellent vocals, good stange presence, and everything just fit really well. Go check them out – they’ve got a ton of shows coming up all over in places like Denver, Washington, Virginia, etc. I can’t recommend these guys enough, and plan on purchasing all their albums.

Now enough of me spouting on about an awesome band (had to say it once more). The rest of the weekend has been fairly tame. Did a shopping trip Saturday to pick up groceries & supplies, came back, cleaned house for a while, relaxed & played some video games, hung out with friends, etc. Then today hit ol’ Wally World. I don’t like em much, but sadly, sometimes they’re the only option in this town. I’ve been wanting a propane grill for quite some time, and they had one from Charbroil for $120 that was pretty nice. SO, picked that up today, along with hamburger buns, and grilled up some VERY delicious onion burgers. SO, did that, and then been relaxing since. Sorta anyways. I had to make one trip to work late tonight (which I talk about on my development blog), which took a bit of time, and I’ve been up since working on my home network. So, a good weekend – busy, but mostly relaxing. Course, tomorrow will be busy as well – talk with UMC-Kansas City people to fix a problem from work, get haircut, sign lease on apartment for next year, renew drivers license, etc. Time for stress to come back – UGH.

Sometime soon here, I’m going to need, and take, a REAL vacation.
