Friday Mega-Review #59

I want to say that doing these every other week isn't going to be a habit, but looking at the next several Fridays coming up, it'll probably get worse before it gets better.

Two weeks ago, we were planning on meeting some people and going to a hockey game, but it fell through. We decided to check out a local bar that was supposed to be pretty good for watching sports, and watch the game there, but it was kind of disappointing.

Saturday, we went further out on Long Island than we usually do because we heard there was a new sandwich shop that did its homework to specialize in authentic Philly cheesesteaks.  Now, if you're out there anyway and want a sandwich, yes, I recommend them; they're very good.  But if you're from Philly and are homesick and want a real cheesesteak... it's very good, but it's not quite authentic.

We then went to Bluepoint Brewery, which is always nice.  They have good stuff and a nice outdoor area.  As usual, I enjoyed the live music but it was way too loud. We're here to hang out, not to attend a concert. Turn it down a  notch.  We bowled a bit before heading home.

Tuesday was volunteering, and Thursday we decide to take another crack at a hockey game, since Thursday game are way cheaper than Friday games. Friday was a friend's birthday, so we went out for that.

Saturday for Halloween, we met up with friends for an early dinner. One guy mentioned that his roommate had just told him the day before that they were throwing a party, and did any of us want to come by, so Chris and I did.  We figured we;d jsut stay for a bit.  Next thing we know, it's 2 a.m. for the second time and missed our extra hour of sleep.  I needed it, too, because I was starting to come down with a cold.

Sunday, a friend ran the marathon, so we cheered her on, then went back to her place so she could collapse while we all ate takeout.

Monday was a really successful fundraiser for the literary magazine I work with (and have been published in, btw!).

Tuesday and Wednesday I made homemade soup, because this cold was wearing me out.

Thursday, some friends who moved out of town were back for a few days, so we met up with them for drinks and then barbecue.

And that bring us to today, which looks like it's going to be the beginning of a weekend of cleaning and errands, but I'll update you on that... well, eventually.

As of this writing, I'm at 5343 words for nanowrimo.  2000 a day going forward will have me winning it early, so I'm not concerned yet.

No knitting these weeks.

I finished Howl's Moving Castle and picked at The How of Happiness.

How've you been?
