Bank holiday weekend
This weekend was another Bank Holiday, and this time I want home to visit friends and family. I was surprised to discover my parents had got themselves a new TV, and even more surprised when I wandered into the loft to see what my little brother was doing - and found him playing Oblivion on a shiny new Xbox360! I also saw my grandparents over the weekend, Gran and Poppa coming over for a Sunday morning visitation, and Nana and Granddad popping over for Sunday dinner. It was good to see everyone
Saturday I finally bowed to necessity and got my hair cut. I’m still unsure whether I like it. Perhaps ‘Do what you like, it just needs cutting and I have no preferences to style’ was not such a smart comment to make when asked what I wanted doing. On the other hand it doesn’t look too bad - I think it likely feels odd because it’s shorter than normal. In any case, I have attacked it with various styilng products in a bid to find a look that is good. Upon returning home my sister had the cheek to claim that my hairline was receding. What’s more galling is to realise that she might actually be right. Normally I have my hair straight down and it looks as expected, but swishing it about a bit, it does seem to take a different root-line than I remember. Oh well, as my Granddad would no doubt say “Grass doesn’t grow on a busy street” - either claiming that tiny leprechaun like creatures regularly walk upon my head, or that I am some sort of incredible thinking machine.
Saturday evening I met Mike after work and we each ate a bucket of pizza and chips at the local Varsity. Well, I ate half of mine before giving up - those buckets are deceivingly large. After that we met up with Dawson, Matt and Kath at Charly Bassets, which was very cool. It’s been something like three years since we were all in that pub, all it was missing was Chris and Joey and I’d have believed we were in a time warp. Dawson also brought along his exceedingly heavy and rather cool Russian camera, the make of which I can’t remember. A few photos were taken, so it’s possible they may make an appearance on the interweb at some point.
All in all it was a nice and relaxing bank holiday weekend, where nothing productive got done. Excellent!
