Easter’s come and gone in a massive storm of nonevent. Not that I was really expecting much to happen, so I suppose my expectations were entirely valid.
Stu’s last day at Corillian was Friday, so a small group of us went to Newport Bay for happy hour where we got cheap food and crappy service for an hour or so to celebrate Stu’s liberation. Jenn and Tif got together for a girls’ movie night, so Stu and I played some Paper Mario.
Saturday was a clean-up-around-the-house day where Jenn and I finally got to a lot of the errands and things we’d been putting on “the list” for the last couple of weeks. Random stuff - shopping, cleaning things, putting things away, etc. Nothing too exciting there, but it was good closure on things that needed to be done. After we finished with the chores, Jenn and I spent some time playing Project Gotham Racing 3, where I thoroughly determined that I’m pretty much no good at it but still have fun playing.
Sunday was a pretty lazy day, and I suppose that’s how it should be on Easter. Jenn and I went to breakfast at Biscuits Cafe, which is really good. I had sweet potato pancakes, heavy on the “cake,” light on the “pan.” So tasty, yet heavy - like eating a gold brick baked in spice. Also had some eggs, hashbrowns, and bacon. Just doesn’t get better than that. Fell into a food coma about 10 minutes after leaving.
I spent a couple of hours reading comic books that I’d purchased but never quite got around to reading, then Stu came over and we finally finished Paper Mario (clocking in at about 40 full hours of play). Jenn whipped up some Indian food - chicken in a spicy ginger sauce - and we all sat and watched SNL: The Best of Phil Hartman, where Stu was given a lot of US pop culture reference in one big dose.
Now it’s Monday, and frankly, I’m bored. Stu’s no longer over the cube wall from me, and while it’s not a showstopper or anything, he did sort of keep me sane around here.
