…must come to an end. We should have more holidays in this country that entail taking several days off of work, and eating a lot.
As I said before, Thanksgiving dinner went really well this year. Friday we went to the Berkley Marina to go on a walk with Joe, which was really nice, and I got some nice shots, too. That evening, we met Peter and Crystal for the So You Think You Can Dance tour performance in Oakland. It was fun and we had good seats, but seeing all those dances back to back made me realize just how short they were; the longest was probably around 2 minutes.
On Saturday, I went to the SF zoo with Jan, Yar, and John, which was fun, and I took some more photos. That evening, we had dinner at Le Charm, which was pretty tasty. I had French onion soup and lamb shank, and the meal somehow ended up being really expensive. After dinner, we all went to Yar and Jan’s place to play Rock Band, which is basically awesome. Our band name is Likkbällz, which should give you an idea of the maturity level of all the players. Despite some really stupid UI decisions, it’s probably the most fun I’ve had with a game in a long time.
Throughout the weekend, I also played some other games, and watched a few movies: The Queen, which I thought was excellent, despite seeming on first glance to be the Boringest Movie Evar, Battlestar Galactica: Razor, which I also thought was really good, and got me really excited for the final season, and Babel, which I could appreciate as a piece of art and storytelling, but made me feel like puking, given the hopelessness of all of the stories. Plus, wtf was up with the Japanese girl? Her story really seemed tacked on to the movie.
And now it’s back to the work week, counting down the days until Christmas vacation.
