My Weekend

I had a pretty awesome weekend, so I just want to recap it here before I forget.

Sara took me for an early birthday breakfast (about a week early) at Cloud 9, a revolving restaurant downtown. Fun :)
At 11:00, there was a harp recital and potluck lunch at her harp teacher's house, so we went to that.
Afterwards, we were rather tired, so we went home and naped, until around 5:30.
Then we called up Conan, and went over there. We ate nachos and played Carcazone(sp?) for a while with him and Jen, then we all sat around and played video games. Sara snagged Josh's Gameboy DS Lite and played Mario. Totally oldskool style! Conan and I played some Ratchet & Clank, an absolutely hillarious futeristic battle-robot game. Or something. The in-game commentary was pretty funny, if a bit repetative. Jen played something on her laptop... not sure what she was playing.
We got home around 1am.

I slept in till around 10:30, then drove Sara to work so I could wander down 4th ave on Kits day. There was soapbox racing, which was pretty funny to watch (wish I had my camera with me), and I even got to see Gordon Campbell drive some 12 wheeled limo soapbox down 4th ave.
I spent the rest of the day soaking up tons of sun. I washed and vacuumed the car, and sat around in the backyard reading. I also wandered around Heather park talking to my parents on the phone, and then called my old highschool friend Tegan, who I haven't talked to for a while. I talked to her husband Carn for a while, because she was at work, and then talked to her later when she got home. Turns out they're planning on going camping the same weekend as the big f00f camping trip, so I've invited them along. Regardless, I'll have a chance to see them while I'm in Calgary.
Later in the day I picked up Sara from work, and we picked up some quick groceries. At home, I BBQ'd some steak for dinner. Yum! Turned out great. After dinner we watched the first 3 episodes of "24", season 1. I think I've got Sara hooked. I've seen season 1 before, but it's long enough ago that I'm really enjoying seeing it again, and I'm looking forward to watching the newer seasons too.

All in all, it was a pretty awesome weekend. :)
