Saturday was good, if tiring... I went to dim sum, and had fun getting lots of the food for people; thankfully, B was able to take over halfway through and let me sit back and enjoy the rest of the meal. I was really starting to get worked up over getting the right things and not screwing up. I’m still not sure why I got so stressed about it, even if just momentarily so. I think it was because this was such an atypical dim sum crowd for me; we got three orders of the crab claw things, and a bunch of other stuff that was more experimental than most. Saw W there, that was very good, even if I am leaving town in a couple days. :-/ One missed opportunity there.

Then came the bowling, again slightly stressful as I was trying to make sure everyone was having fun. I feel bad that jered and his friend ended up four lanes away (though I am also mad that he got a 196, when all I could manage for the day was a 184 ;), largely not interacting with the rest of us... But a bunch of my friends showed up, and people seemed to get to bowl as much as they actually wanted to. I got to see forgotten_aria, kareila, and a bunch of other people who I won’t name for, y’know, their privacy. All in all, there were about ten of us.

Afterwards, there was Ground Round. Mmm, fajitas. Not bad at all, for tex-mex several thousand miles from tex or mex. And better than I could do at home without firing up a grill.

After that, off to Circuit City, where I got a new phone (more on that in another post), and then to Micro Center where I got the printable mailing labels that Circuit City didn’t have.

I was thinking of looking at family-band walkie-talkies for use on the trip back, communicating with my dad as we drive my car and the truck to Minnesota, but it doesn’t seem worth the cost for just one use of the things. I imagine they’d be useful in other situations, but realistically, would I ever use them again? I can’t think of when I would... maybe things like folk festivals or the Esplanade for the 4th, but... that’s pretty rare. I should at least price them, I suppose.

d'oh!
I really wanted to make it out for bowling... Sorry I spaced! On the other hand, and a somewhat selfish one at that, something truly wonderful has happened to me, which has put most everything else out of my mind. Wow. Wheeeee!

Hope everything goes splendidly for you!

When people who up for bowling 1 hour late, I think you are free of any guilt of getting them a lane.

Maybe you can rent walkie talkies?

You can get a good pair of Motorola FRS radios for $60
for the pair at Costco or Amazon or wherever.
