|08:17 am - Another weekend gone. . .|
My weekend was basically uneventful. I spent it all with Tina.
She's feeling better, but still not 100%, after her surgery, so we weren't able to do anything at all, really, with the minor exception of going out to brunch with wishesofastar and her husband. That marked my first time at the breakfast place First Watch, which I keep hearing is this amazing place to eat, but I was unimpressed in general. The pancakes were mildly okay (and lukewarm), the syrup was lame, the eggs were expensive, and the bacon was almost (but not quite) perfect. A $10 breakfast should be excellent, however, and I just didn't feel likethat was the case.
But staying home with Tina was something I had to do. We've watched a lot of movies over the past week or so, including The Big Lebowski, A Beautiful Mind, and we went out to see The Bourne Supremacy last night.
Mind sucked. That's the only way I can describe it. It was 2 hours and 16 minutes of no plot annoyance and a completely dull set of psychological twists that could only have been interesting had his delusions been true.
Lebowski was slightly more interesting, but still annoying, tedious, and shockingly unfunny.
Bourne was (and this is scary) the best of these three movies. Shaky camera-work aside, it was genuinely fun. I didn't feel like I could get up, walk out, and come back in a half hour later and that the plot would still be in the same place.
Finally, my apologies for missing everything I did this weekend. My girlfriend needed me.

I liked Lebowski, but I think you have to see it a few times for it all to ruminate.
Agreed on bourne.
Agreed on First Watch. It's always good but not as good as it should be.

"Another weekend gone ...", you seem to say in an almost apologetic way. Yet, The Great Wheel has continued to turn and you were able to experience it according to your own dictates. Which is not something that should strike melancholy.
And the most important thing you said (IMO), "My girlfriend needed me." If you spent time with someone that genuinely needs and wants you, your weekend was anything but uneventful. Many hectic lives are spent with few such experiences.

Re: Important thoughts
Haha. A lot of it was napping, reading, and being there when she needed me to. Nothing meloncholy. However, several people were hoping to see me this weekend, and that's why I mention, "my girlfriend needed me."

Interesting that you didn't like A Beautiful Mind. I, personally, loved it, and have watched it several times. At one point in my life, I had a dear friend with a touch of psychosis, and this movie was invaluable in helping me to make sense of it all.
Yeah. I found myself wishing it would be over about an hour into it. But I braved it and watched the rest.
i don't see any reason why you should apologize for spending the weekend with your girlfriend.
...and surgery? mim. schmendrick and i hope that she's feeling better. he sends a purr and a "mrrp?"
Well, I had fun at brunch with you guys. Sorry First Watch wasn't up to your standards. :/ It means a lot that you came out with us when you had so much going on this past weekend. Always nice to see you. :)
