Well, an interesting weekend, no doubt. Friday began my three days off pretty slowly. In fact, I really don’t recall exactly what I did, other than be lazy and play on the computer. Oh, wait, it’s coming back to me, now that I think about it a bit. I watched the news, then switched over to ScyFy (damn, I hate that new name) to catch Stargate Universe, and Sanctuary. Unfortunately, SG Universe skipped a week, so it was a repeat of last week’s Sanctuary, then the new episode. Fun seeing Michael Shanks back on the screen, cute crack about Amanda Tapping’s hair. More dinking around online, and some DVDs. Watched Life Free or Die Hard. Again. Not bad.
Saturday was much more interesting. It started off with a bang. Or, more correctly, a crash. I was sitting in my computer room/radio shack when I heard something nearby make a loud crashing noise. I looked out back, thinking the fence the next door neighbor had replaced after it fell in October might have died again, but it seemed OK. I checked out front, but couldn’t find anything, so I wrote it off to some debris settling noisily next door, where they are renovating the house. By this time, Ted had messaged me, inviting my up to Fresno for dinner, then clubbing. Never one to pass on a visit with Ted, I headed up that way. Dinner at Ted and Mychal’s, some tv, and then off to the North Tower Circle in Fresno. They had go-go boys! The picture is not of the guys dancing that night, but it gives you an idea. Two guys, one hispanic, one asian, both very hot. Even a go-go girl, for the ladies. Any straight guy would have thought she was super hot, even I appreciated the scenery! Met some interesting people there, they had quite the crowd. We stayed till closing, then back to Ted’s. It was about 2:30 when we arrived, so I expected to say goodnight and head on home, but for some reason Ted turned on the DVR, and we started watching a Criminal Minds program about FBI profilers. About half-way through, I noticed Ted, Mychal, and the puppies Eva and Jasmine were one big pile, all sound asleep on the couch! Well, they had gotten me wrapped up in the program, so I just sat there watching it until it was done. Then I woke them all up to say good bye, at almost 4am! That’s waaaay past all of their bedtimes! Home again, and bed. Before I went to sleep, though, my cousin, as he was getting up, asked me if I saw where the tree had fallen in the back yard. Sooo…. THAT’s what the crash was! I told him I’d look at it later, as I was going to bed.
Sunday, I got up early, dragged myself out of bed, actually, to get to Tulare by 2pm for a meeting of the Tulare County Atheists. Had a nice chat with a few people. I was expecting more of a turnout, since I had posted a blog on the Visalia Times Delta’s online site, and posted a notice on the TCA’s wordpress blog site. Back home, I pulled the tree off of the fence and cut some limbs off. I took a nap, which I seldom do, and then dinner. The rest of the evening was spent watching Oprah’s Whitehouse special, the news, then a Star Trek movie DVD and doing laundry. Now I’m done, and going to bed!
All in all, not a bad weekend at Casa De Jimbo.
