Weekend update

I’m still stuck here in Vancouver, and won’t comment on that any further today except to say I’ve got a killer headache.

I want to talk about last weekend. Friday was nice. Because of the move and my trip I didn’t work too hard. I went in to the new office and worked until the VPN went down, then played some basketball. Jill and I went to Big Bowl in Reston for dinner, I had the green beans and Sichuan chicken, both nice and spicy. Da Vinci’s Notebook were hilarious as usual – especially fun was their cover of Styx’s “Come Sail Away” during the encore.

Saturday was Mel and Scott’s wedding. We had to head out early in the day, as I wanted to absentee vote for the Town Of Herndon elections (held today), and we needed to shop. I found that both of my white shirts had stains, and Jill didn’t like the dress she had bought. We found what we needed at JC Penney’s; I also picked up a pair of pants since I had time. We changed at my mom’s house, since she’s five minutes from the chapel, and made it with 5 minutes to spare.

The ceremony was brief, and the reception was a lot of fun. Jill had agreed to drive, and I consumed mass quantities of alcohol. I enjoyed talking to Mel’s family again (her little brother John is huge), and especially best friend Scott. We were there late – it started at 7:30, and we left after 12:30.

Woke up Sunday with a bit of a hangover. I didn’t eat until 5:30, after I had time to read the paper, then cook up the cilantro chicken I had marinated on Saturday. I watched a lot of TV as I cleaned up and packed (can’t wait for the “Alias” finale), then collapsed into bed at 1.
