May in review

So, while lordaerith is playing PS2 games I'm going to try to recap all of May.

May was really busy, so I didn't have a chance to write nearly as much as I wanted to. I hope that I'm going to remember everything that I want to say.

May started off with Collapse )

On May 10 I met up with modernaphrodite and muninwing to see really bad girly gymnastics movie. Ran into honor_knight while I was waiting for them. Convinced him to come see the movie with us. I think that I liked the movie more than bad girly fairy-tale movie but less than bad girly runs to england movie and bad girly cheerleader movie. It's probably on par with bad girly ice skater movie. I really did like what the gymnasts did a the meet and I think that I got my money's worth from the lay-over of everyone's routines while they were each in different colors bit that they did during the in gym competition. safirerings, I really missed you!

The next week aerith and i went to Svaroopa Yoga class at InSpirit Common, which I already wrote about. We have since bought a 10 class pass each and have gone twice more. It's been really good for both of us.

On the weekend of the 20th, Aerith and I headed down to the DC area. I wrote a backdated post to cover that trip. There are pictures, so you should go look at it :)

When we got home from DC, artemis42 and daobear were there. We started to watch Kiss Me Kate when the power went out (even though the storm had passed...I found out later that something knocked out a power line somewhere very close by). So we played the Mad Magazine Board Game, which is like backwards Monopoly. My mom called part way through the game, so the other's played without me. Then I taught daobear how to play Quarto by candle light, which was really cool. At one point the lights came back on, flickered and then turned off again. A little while later they finally came back on and we finished the movie.

The last weekend in May pyramus came to visit. We hung out with him for most of the weekend, which was fun. Got to grill salmon on Saturday. mmm. Also I finally ate at Paul and Elizabeth's in town. It was very good. The three of us went to see X-3. It was umm..ok. This says a lot of what I felt. Introduced pyramus to Avatar: The Last Airbender. Such a fun show.

On Monday we headed down to kiten and doctorjekyll's for a bbq. Aerith and I had bought a bison steak from Whole Foods. We let it marinate for a good 2-3 hours. It was so good! Also had lots of other food and got to see people and try to spin fuzzy poi (i kept hitting myself).

Other things that happen throughout the month...umm...we got to barbecue a bunch. I told my boss that I'm leaving in August (but I haven't given official notice yet) and started apartment searching in Austin. Oh, and Lost. We watched Lost. Lots of it. As in finished season 1 and got most of the way through season 2. We would have finished season 2 THIS weekend, if episode 2-21 was actually 2-21 and not 1-1.
