Weekend Alone

Normally Jim's around on the weekends and we have breakfast at a little diner in Los Gatos Saturday mornings and then go to work, but he went with some old friends to Reno this weekend. So, I have his car which is nice, but I'll pretty much be on my own all weekend. I happened to stop by a local game store Friday night and saw they were having a sidewalk sale today, so I looked around there and picked up a couple of magazines for cheap, then had breakfast at the diner next door. Wow, was that bad. The place is nice enough, but the food was not enjoyable. That was a bummer.

Now I'm at the office and I'm going to work on some things that I need to do.

I mentioned in my last post that I'd finished one of the miniatures I bought a couple weeks ago. Well, now I've finished all four of them and they look great! I'm very happy with them. I'm going to go outside in a bit and spray them with sealant/varnish in a couple of minutes. I really need to bring the camera down so I can take pictures and post them. Maybe I'll do that when Julia comes to visit in September.

Our wedding is two weeks from tomorrow! I'm pretty excited about that for a number of reasons; friends and family are coming from out of town for a few days, so we'll get to do some sight-seeing and visiting, then there's the actual wedding and reception, which should be a great time. We only have about 20 people coming to the ceremony and only about 100 people for the reception. That seems like a pretty big number, but I think it's a good size. It's not so many people that we can't have a few minutes with everyone. Plus everyone we've invited is awesome, so how could it not be fun. It's funny though, because even with 100 people at the party, there are so many more friends I would love to have there -- especially all my college-era friends. I'll miss them.

I sent letters to all the families I grew up with in Burlington to tell them about the wedding, Julia, and what's going on in my life a couple of weeks ago. And I've already received a nice reply from my friend Dave's mom. Dave is my friend who was killed in a car accident 17 years ago, so it was good to hear from her. He was my best friend for years and introduced me to gaming, so to say he had a big impact on my life is an understatement.

Bleh, I don't want to write about that anymore. Anyway, it was nice to hear from her and now that I have an email address for her I'm sure we'll talk more.

Okay, time to get some things done.
