Birthday weekend

I had off on Friday and so stayed up late Thursday watching movies. Friday, instead of going to Michaels for cake decorating stuff and getting some lunch, I dawdled until the last minute and had to rush to a 2pm meeting.

After the meeting, I got something small to eat, knowing I would be having pizza at 6pm. Then I tried to do some homework, but was unmotivated.

At about 5:30, the medieval studies folks met in the closet that is our library to watch Tristan & Isolde and have pizza and beer. I wish I had a photo, because it was rather funny to see us squeezed in there in the dark surrounded by books with a mountain of munchies on the table.

After the movie, Chad, Jenn and I took our time heading over to Indigo for karaoke. Several other folks met us there. We three medievalists sang “Living on a Prayer” and Jenn & I sang “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” I’m not very good at it. I don’t like to sing loud, and you can’t be heard unless you yell the songs or are a powerhouse singer.

Afterward we hit a diner, but I didn’t need more food so I had pie. Got home about 3:30am. Things go late in a town when bartime is 4am or later.

Saturday, I slept in until 1pm. Eep. I didn’t get any homework done, but watched movies until dinnertime, when I picked up some Pad Thai. It was quite bad. Then, I received a text that Paul and Chad were going to see Role Models, so I met up with them. It was quite funny. I would recommend it to my friends who read this blog. On the way back from the movie, I picked up some Cold Stone, to make up for the Thai, and some cut flowers. I watched some more films while doing prepatory research (finding sources and such).

This morning, I actually finished my paleography before noon. Then I cleaned the bathroom, started laundry, and began to paint the spackle spots on my walls. I want to do my Latin now while the next load of laundry is going.

I’ll need to be more cautious now of going out. It’s expensive. I must stick to my oatmeal and carrot diet; it’s cheap.

    We need to talk about what constitutes a balanced diet, daughter dear. 🙂

  2. Chad says:

    Are cupcakes involved in this “balanced diet” theory?

  3. Yes, one in each hand is balanced.

    Oh hey, Happy Birthday a bit late! 🙂
