Friday night was Pirates of the Caribbian with safirerings, kiten, and athanata. sophaeia was supposed to come too, but she got stuck in traffic :( OMG! What a great movie! Johnny Depp was amazing. And I think that it had the best sword fight since The Princess Bride.

Yesterday Aerith and I drove to Eastern Mass to surprise his mother with a visit. She was so happy to see us. And I got to play with the little baby. Well...she isn't so little anymore (17 months). She's not talking yet, but she makes lots of noise, and you can see the intellegence in her eyes. I know that when she starts talking she's just not going to stop. I also got to meet Aerith's uncle and play with a sprinkler on a motion senser (to scare away cats from his flowerbed). We went out to dinner with Aerith's mother, eldest sister and her fiance/baby's daddy while his other older sister watched the little one. It was a nice dinner, except I don't like my stake charcol burnt. Then I drove home at 10pm. Didn't fall asleep, which was good. Singing along to the music really helps. At one point I passed a cop who had his lights off. He put on his lights and pulled over the car behind me. Yay for cruise control.

This morning I called in sick from work (bad me, I know, but sometimes it's hard to care). Aerith and I got laundrey done and went to the store and we have tickets to see Copenhagen at New Century Theatre. Of course this year's season is really amazing, and it's the first time in 5 years that I don't free tickets. oh well.

    goth mp3 type things on Aerith's comp


Saw Copenhagen. (duh, I said I was going to in my last post). Ran into the NCT Company Mother. She told the box office people to give us comp tickets b/c we'd been with NCT for so long. Yay for free theatre. We bought raffle tickets, but we didn't win. Oh well. Company Mother also asked how Nayone was since we were such "close friends" last summer. I just said that she and I had a falling out. It's a pretty good explanation for it.

Copenhagen was really really good. The acting was fanominal. Sam Rush just blew me away. The show really got me too. All of the what ifs and the ideas of the uncertanty of the memories of the dead Heisenburg and Borh vs. the realities of situtation, war, and math/phyisics. I'm not sure how much about the meetings of the two of them was fact and how much was artistic licence, but the possiblities of what could have happened, what may have been said, what wasn't said are facinating. Also the morality of theoretical phyiscs and fission to create a bomb. Is it better to purposly downplay the work you are doing so the "evil" doesn't get a hand on it and thus save millions of lives, or to help the "good guys" develop one of the most powerful and distructive weapons in human history and have the deaths of millions on your hands? What do you do when science colides with politics and war. It's facenating to thing about, to have it played out and questioned on stage before you. It really made me think. (And I think that Aerith has been right all these years, I would have really liked physics if I had ever taken it).
