Long Weekend!

You remember in high school when a weekend meant that you spent Friday night eating out and watching movies till all hours? I miss that. Lately the weekend has meant that I sit on my couch numb the exhaustion from the nothing that I've been doing all week.

But last night Robin, Laura, and I went out to Chili's and rented more movies than it was feasible for us to watch in a single evening. And even though I slept through most of the first movie (which had the benefit of making me awake enough to watch the second) it was a lot of fun.

Today, I woke up at nine. And ten. And eleven.
At that point Robin was already up and outside watching her boyfriend's father put together our lawn mower. We tried to do it ourselves, but the pieces didn't seem to be fitting together.

Our lawn has been pretty bad. We had a visit from some official looking lawn inspector person. He informed my roommate that most people keep their lawns under two feet and that we should too. She mentioned that we were working towards that goal.

We're fairly certain that the wicked witch of the west is living next door to us. She watched us from her window and complains about everything from where we park to the fact that we let the puppy play outside. We're pretty sure she called the lawn inquisitor. If our lawn was not so very terrible we would have let it keep growing a while, just to spite her. As it is she's going to think her call made a difference. We find that upsetting.

The upside is that now we can use the fire pit in our backyard. We're planning on having a bonfire tomorrow night. So, if you're our friend, you should come on up and roast a hot dog and marshmallows. If you're a stalker, we'd just as soon you didn't.

The bonfire was a good idea. Nice and low-key.
