Back to Normal

I was able to finish up my editing prokect and sent it out . . . then get out and have some fun this weekend, which was nice.

Friday I went to see Ray with Matt and Seth. It was very good . . . very interesting. Ray Charles was an intrguing person. It's amazing to think he was the son of a washerwoman and grew up to be one of the most famous entertainers of his day. I also have to say that Jamie Fox continues to impress me when he actually acts. He did a great job of mimicking Charles' voice, style of speech, and mannerisms. Really very good.

The movie ran awfully late, so I slept in then went for comics with Seth. That was really about all for the afternoon, but later in the day I made phone calls and got everything organized for taking a trip up to a local casino to play blackjack with some friends. We all lost money, but it was fun and the casino really impressed me. It was well-run, had very good food, and excellent waitstaff.

Sunday I cleaned up a bit around my apartment in the morning, then I met a bunch of people at the local theatre to see The Incredibles. It was excellent. I'd see it again -- and I may get to because work may send us as this month's movie. Cool. Go see it, it's good. It has a great super-spy, 50's, super-hero thing going for it.

I was going to play City of Heroes in the evening, but Shane called to invite me to see a co-worker's new band perform for the first time. I figured it would be better to go out and be social rather than sit at home in front of my computer, so off I went. The band was good, but the sound was much too loud for the small room we were in. The band only played about five songs, then we all hung out and chatted with everyone else who'd shown up -- and there were a good number of people that I knew there. It was good to get out, but I didn't really feel very social and I had to force myself into conversations. I hate when it's like that. It was sort of like feeling alone in a crowd, but that's not quite right, I think it was more like I was wishing I was alone instead of being in a crowd.

Oh well, we can't always do what we know we're supposed to do.

This is to inform you that you have been made a Life Member of the NRA in view of your staunch support of gun rights and personal collection of Chinese-made assault weapons.

I get the feeling some of you think I'm anti-gun. I'm not. Not at all. I think they're useful and have a place in any society who's members may have to protect itself someday.

I may not like how some people use them, but that's them, not the guns. Guns just make it easier and less personal.

If you're not willing to kill 'em with a knife, you ought not be shooting them.

That's always been my motto.

Well, that and, "It is better to run out of mixer than it is to run out of Vodka."

Closely followed by, "Don't blame me, I didn't vote."*


*Of course, I did vote in this election... Not a single winner.
