Saying Good-Bye to my Old Friend, the Weekend

I’ll be running a huge law conference next weekend so this past weekend was my last spell of “time off” until May 12th. Ugh.

On the plus side, I did have a relatively lazy weekend. Friday night was typical dinner/games night with Randy and a bunch of friends: Chris, Pete, Zach, Mickey (sp?). We even pulled out my old Game Cube for various games of Monkey Ball (Monkey Target, Monkey Fight, Monkey Race, Monkey Dogfight, etc…). However, in the end it was only Pete and me who seemed to enjoy it for the trippy wonder that it is.

Saturday, was when the real laziness set in. After a bit of shopping/exchanging, I got together with the same friends from Friday night, and more (Jeff, Scott, Deano), and went to the Ramrod Center for the Performing Arts to see the Gold Dust Orphans newest play: The Postman Always Comes Twice.

It was great fun and everybody seemed to love it. Except Randy, who appears to lack the camp gene.

Post-theatre, we played some pool at the bar and watched some scary old queen vogue alone on the empty dance floor. He’d simply prance from corner to corner as if a model on a cat-walk (occasionally slipping his shirt off his shoulder to reveal his tank-top). She was having a ball. I sometimes I wish posessed that level of inhibition.

But not always.

Sunday continued the lazy theme and after shopping for groceries, we got together with friends (Ben and Sandy) in Southie for dinner to drink wine, eat pizza, and look at pictures of Sandy’s recent trip to Germany (I WANT TO GO).

Now it’s Monday…and all I have to look forward to is an upcoming weekend where I’ll be working 12-hour days. I think I’m getting sick. cough. cough.

    Karl, this is what a lazy weekend is – barely moving from your divan while you stuff you face and intermittently fall asleep. Not gallivanting all around town with friends.

    I don’t even know what a lazy weekend is. So it was nice to hear about someone else’s. 🙂
