I really had a great weekend.  I know that in almost every post I make I say something along those lines, but that’s because it’s always true.  Not that every day is great, but I try to make it that way.  Up to this point I’ve mostly been writing about the more significant days, mostly weekends, simply because I didn’t wanna bore people with anything too standard like “Today I went to work, came home, and went to sleep”.  But today I was thinking that it’s often small little happenings that I reflect on from day to day, and I want to be able to look back at any random day in my life and see what happened and what I was thinking or feeling.  So as boring as it may be sometimes, I’m going to make at least one post a day from here on out.  Nobody ever really comments on anything, so it’s not like I have many dedicated readers to please.

But back to this weekend.   There was Thursday night at BAR in New Haven, which was a bit of a disappointment at first because I couldn’t get many friends to come out, but I had a great time with the friends that did come, and played a good game of SRPS on the way home.  Friday was my trip down to NYC with Steph.  Saturday I booked a flight to Dublin for September.  I worked most of the day, but the excitement about the trip got me through it.  Plus the weather was incredible, so I didn’t mind driving around too much.  That night Matt, Joe, Shane, and Steph came over.  We grabbed some fast food, had a couple beers, and played Things for an hour or two.  Matt lost his Cream cd and went on an obsessed rampage in search of it, Steph had a sever case of deja vu, and Shane had a good laugh over my Kriss Kross reference.

This morning was how all Sunday mornings should be, slow, timeless, and relaxing.  Sundays are becoming my favorite day of the week.  It’s always the one day with the least plans.  I really hate the concept of time and it’s the one day of the week that I get to forget that time exists.  Unfortunately I had to work an open house up in Waterbury for 2 hours, but that let out early so my day was saved.  Justin got back from Wildwood so I hung out at home for a lil bit.  Then my mom declared she wanted a new parakeet so I took a trip down to the pet store with Steph, popped one in a bag and introduced him to his new cage-mate – another parakeet named Blue Bell.

After that Steph and I met up with Patti and Scott and we all hung out Walnut beach for an hour or two with was EXACTLY what I needed.  The temp was perfect, sky was blue, there was a strong breeze and the sun was getting low in the sky.  From the beach we went to the mall for some food and then stopped at Patti’s for a lil bit before heading back to the mall to watch Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby for the second time this weekend.  It was even better the second time around.  Then I came home and did a lot of thinking.  And that was my day.  So now I’m off to bed.  More to come tomorrow.

P.S. This is funny.
