The End of the Weekend

What a wonderful weekend I had. Jeanna came over late Friday and we headed to Wal-Mart to get some essentials (you know, things like Funyuns and Nutty Bars) before we headed off to the B. Dalton in Memorial City Mall to pick up our copies of Harry Potter.

I'd never actually been to Memorial City Mall before, so I was quite proud of myself for getting out there okay. (Jeanna's friend Kelly works there and we promised we'd come see her.)

After that it was back home to watch my old marching band videos, talk for a while and then watch Truly, Madly, Deeply, which we both enjoyed quite a lot.

It was after five when we finally went to bed, so I slept until 1:00 on Saturday when it was time to get up and go get pedicures. After that it was off to a local jewelry store that's going out of business to check out their stock (the guy's going to call me when they get an even lower discount so I can get some opal earrings and maybe a pair of long, dangly amethyst ones too).

We then spent some wonderful time at the local Sephora before heading off to Chinese Cafe for lunch.

Lunch was fabulous and the two of us both ate for $20 with tons of leftovers. Hell of a deal.

We figured we were near Westheimer, so we rode it all the way down to The Galleria where I found two awesome covers for my Nokia 3650, something I'd had a hard time locating. We looked around a bit and then headed home.

Before we got home, we hit Blockbuster and rented Dead Again (I couldn't believe Jeanna had never seen it) and The Maltese Falcon (she couldn't believe I'd never seen it).

We watched Dead Again, Aresenic and Old Lace (we both adore that movie), and then hit the hay since it was already past 2:00.

Today we watched The Maltese Falcon and I loved it! Humphrey Bogart was one cool motherfucker.

Jeanna left, I played some poker (won $50 too, which was nice), and now I'm off to get ready so I can pick Steven up from the airport. It'll be nice to see him.

Of course, I feel like a need a weekend to recover from my weekend now! Wonder if I can nap at work tomorrow witout anyone noticing.

I watched Maltese Falcon for the first time over the weekend too. Great movie, one of my top favorites now.

Walmart is very, very bad.

Just so you keep your liberal Democrat street cred. :-)
