Had a fun weekend, though too short as usual.
Friday night, I took Jacob to GameStop to pick up a Gamecube. He paid for “half” of it, and ended up playing on it most of the weekend. Was cool to see him all excited. He’s been a good kid, and deserved the surprise.
Saturday, I slept in for once, then took Jacob to the mall to just walk around and look at stuff. Had a couple of awesome dad moments. The first was on the way to the mall, when he gets bummed that I’ve got the Cranberries in (his mom and I had been listening to it the night before), and asked where my CD case was. He grabs it, and pulls out Hellbilly Deluxe. I was highly proud. The kid LOVES the metal. Life is good. The other moment was when we walk into Hot Topic and he goes straight for the listening station, and finds the hardest band he can track down. Listens to the CD the entire time I’m walking around geeking out to nintendo shirts and transformers paraphenalia.
That night, I went to Momos down on 6th street to see my friend Jim’s band play. Had a blast, though I was out later than expected. Coleen, Jacob, and I had gone out to eat kind of late, and so I was late getting to the club. Got there in time to catch the last half of Jim’s set, then stayed out until about 1AM to hang out with him. Saw an old friend (Shari, for those of you that know her.) She was doing well. Recently hitched like myself, and just as funny and positive-minded as I remembered. Mostly though, hung out with Jim and this girl that I think he’s into. We laughed pretty much the entire time, and I think I somehow got volunteered for a comedy act… Erm… We’ll hope they both forget that notion. I hate getting on stage for anything. Although, I think the world DOES need to know about “Formaldehyde Binkies”, my masterpiece of lyrical genius. (It IS genius! Trust me! And quit looking at me like THAT!)
Anyhow… Today I cleaned out the garage, watched some TV, and was LAZY. Was a good day.
Why the hell did the weekend have to end so fast?
Eh well. Game night tomorrow.
