Week in Review – Week Ending 2009 May 23

This week my social activities were sharply curtailed by getting sick
for several days. I had to cancel on Jeki, which sucked although she
was very understanding of my situation. I did feel well enough to go
camping this weekend at Lothlorien, which does make me happy. I
enjoyed hanging out with LilDomino last night for her birthday, and
tonight after work it’s back to Lothlorien to spend the rest of the
weekend camping with Salamander42 and Pandara!

Last Sunday IceSpark and I didn’t get to bed until about 4 AM after a
great time at the BHRG’s Pants Off Dance Off season opener party.
Luckily we got to sleep in late before getting up to shower and
venture out for food. After dinner IceSpark stopped by the doctor’s to
check out her knee, which she hurt during derby practice. After
picking up prescriptions for her injury, we retired to her house,
where I MUXed and we played Travians.

Monday I had off since I’m on the Saturday shift this week, so
IceSpark and I slept in late and then ventured out for food. Since
IceSpark’s knee is in an immobilizer and I wanted her to rest and heal
fast, I mowed her lawn for her (I owe her for all the help she’s given
me in my apartment). We went out to dinner and then I got online to
MUX. SydneyGB set up a rather fun role-playing scene with Major Bludd, Snake-Eyes and Spike that I brought Buster into and nearly got
everybody killed. Good times! B)

Tuesday I was back at work – for about four hours. I started feeling
really sick, and had to go home early and cancel my evening plans
since I wasn't feeling up for travel and socializing. I was hoping to
get things done at home instead, but I wound up wiling away the hours
away with little accomplished besides checking my email, doing some
laundry, emptying out my hall closest, and watching The Daily
Show
. I hoped against hope I’d feel better the next day.

No such luck. I felt OK in the morning, but by noon I was feeling
horrid again. I cancelled my re-scheduled plans with Jeki and stayed
home once more. It was good to have some time to myself, but I still
managed not to get anything accomplished with the time I had. I know
I should have been resting since I was sick, but I didn’t really rest
and yet still didn’t get anything done either. I did set up the
automatic teapot my mother got me a while back so I could make myself
ginger tea pots at a time, but that’s about it. In retrospect I
should have just set up my laptop and MUXed the night away, or at
least caught up on my reading.

By Thursday I was feeling better, so after work I drove down to
Lothlorien to meet up with Salamander42 and Pandara. Pandara showed
me around (I’ve only been there once, very briefly, and not during an
event) and I got to hang out with her friends and run into a few more
of my own. Pandara was carrying around a giant unbreakable goblet of
wine to the amusement of many of the people we ran into, and while she
was planning to stay up all night, we wound up passing out in her tent
fairly early, while Salamander42 stayed up and napped in a hammock he
set up somewhere outside. I felt guilty for displacing Salamander42
from his own tent, but I had a great time hanging out with them.

Friday was LilDomino’s birthday, so I left Lothlorien early so I could
drive back and surprise LilDomino with donuts from her favorite bakery
and a full set of Star Trek glasses she’d wanted from Burger King. I
got stuck in race traffic, but I called IceSpark and she Google-mapped
me through back streets so I could bring breakfast to her and
LilDomino. After work LilDomino met me at my apartment so I could
pack for the weekend, and then we went shopping for more camp stuff
and then had dinner at a Mongolian grill.

LilDomino and I stayed up late this morning packing, and then this
morning LilDomino dropped me off downtown so I could avoid parade
hassles. At work everyone else got to go home on e-time, but I’m
stuck here ‘til 6:15. When LilDomino picks me up we’re heading back
down to Lothlorien to spend the weekend. She borrowed Brone’s tent
and bought an air mattress, and we’re bringing along a sleeping bag
and a ton of blankets in case it gets cold at night and we don’t want
to freeze. B) It should be lots of fun.



‘It's one thing to be criticized by the head of a national civil
rights conference or a feminist advocacy group. But it's another when
Alberto Gonzales—yes, that Alberto Gonzales—calls your rulings an
"unconscionable act of judicial activism." Congratulations, Judge
Owen! You're more extreme than the torture memo guy!’

Sounds good to me! I was pretty out of it, myself, from not enough sleep, so my coherence came and went over the course of the weekend. LOL Had a lot of fun, tho!

Hey, no need to feel guilty for displacing me. . . it was all arranged in advance, and I rather like sleeping in my hammock. :)
