Weekend Report

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. I spent the entire weekend packing. I had the time, and I got the bug. I packed everything I never use, rarely use, or could bare without using until August (for Jason)/December (me). 54 boxes neatly labeled and numbered with a corresponding inventory list stacked in piles in the basement. We went through everything: closets, garage, clothes. There is a huge pile for trash (old furniture crap and stuff) and another for give-away (clay pots, horse tack, etc.) in the garage. I then polished it off with a dusting, vacuum, and litter box changing. I can't believe how much I did. Now, I'm trying to get everything in order to get back into my lab/exercise routine. Pay bills (check), finalize moving trip in August (harder than you would think to reserve a goddamn truck), set up utilities, etc., etc. Lab is picking up nicely. I'm breaking out of my sluggish rut.
Tried a new restaurant this weekend. I took Jason out to celebrate getting into UCSDs econ program since he wouldn't congratulate himself. Bought him a card and a laptop computer (he's upset at the expense, but who's going to turn down a computer?). Then, we saw Star Wars. Very entertaining. Never underestimate the power of dinner and a movie. It was a lot of fun.

P.S. Why does Grievous (the bug guy) in Star Wars cough all the time? I couldn't figure that one out.

I actually wondered about Greivous' character too on a few things...i wondered about the cough...but my main thoughts were, why in the heck is he in this movie :). there is never a mention of him in any of the movies prior or after. he kind of just appears and then is killed. i think that the special effects people/lucas entertainment were looking for a character to make into an action figure personally.

btw...what restaurant did you try, and what did you think?

kevin:
he was present in the stories that linked the two movies together. mainly as being the droid leader that was trying to wipe out the jedi. i think if you check out the animated episodes, you will see him depicted more clearly.

I will have to go back and check it out...it has been a while since I have watched Episode 2.

have you seen all of the animated episodes? I have heard that they are great (someone told me they showed them all on MTV or SciFi or some cable channel one day), but I havent had time to rent them yet.

So why the coughing?

We ate at this place called Citizen Kane's Steakhouse in Kirkwood. Deeelicious!
