Shuumatsu ga daisuki!
I can't tell you how much I love weekends, mainly because there are just so many things I want to pursue and enjoy! Having big blocks of free time is so wonderful because I can allow myself to do the things I want. This weekend started with a great Greatest American Heroes gig at a benefit for Tongue and Groove Theatre - there were three bands (we were the "headliner"), and since we only had one set to play, I got to go crazy and crank out all my energy. I just love getting all sweaty and breaking sticks! I played a new racing game at Dave & Buster's for the first time - the motion was so smooth that the sensation was fantastic, plus the "radio" soundtrack really made me feel like I was just out tooling around at 150 MPH for fun. Time Warner sent me a new cable modem to replace my ancient model (from back when I was a beta tester for broadband!), and my connection is so much faster now (it's also one-fourth the size)! Last night I went to the opera, and there was a personal note in my seat thanking me for subscribing to the next season (I thought that was pretty cool), and they opened a new dessert bar at intermission that's much better than the regular snack bar - I had a great sliver of cheesecake and coffee, which made the opera experience even more wonderful. Man, life can be so great sometimes!
