Jill’s party

After such a busy weekend last week, we kept it subdued this weekend with only one social engagement. Not Friday, nice and simple pizza and salad night, then we continued the reversal of our usual pattern of me watching TV and Jill on the computer as she’s very interested in watching the Winter Olympics and I’m in the middle of a massive music project.

Saturday Jill was out for a while, so I got some in some TV, then we switched. At night we went to her company’s annual party, this year held in the National Air and Space Museum annex. We came in and they were taking pictures, the one we got came out ok for me, good for Jill.


Except for being held right next to the SR-71 Blackbird, it was run very much like my company’s party last month, rounds of appetizers, a buffet for dinner, and speeches and awards. I preferred the food here, though Jill liked the food at my company’s party better (I was a big fan of the egg rolls and roast beef). In addition to having free rein to walk around the museum, the simulators and IMAX were open to us and we took advantage and rode the Wings flight simulator, ’twas fun (I would have tried the one that went upside down but didn’t have a chance until after dinner and I had a feeling that wouldn’t have worked well). Before we left, I had to get a photo of that sleek, sexy creature I was next to all night.

Today was another day at home, but I kept busy, mostly with my project. For dinner I marinated pork chops in this and made black and green beans to go with it, came out pretty well. Then we watched 24 before Jill headed to bed.
