It's all greek to me....

So I think that this might be the last bit of catchup I have to play. This is of course more than a week old by now but it's really hard sometimes to get into the right mood to caption these pictures. This is ecspecially true when I'm not sure what the real value of doing any of this is. I mean, sure, one day 10 years down the line I might find it interesting and nostalgic to be able to look back on this and read my impression of what occured at the time....but it's just as likely LJ will die between now and then and all of this will be wiped away. Nothing on the internet really seems to last and you'd have to be a fool to think that LJ will always keep your entries safe. All it would take is one good fire or system crash to neuter most of the angsty ramblings of god only knows how many emo wankers.

Anyway, speculative complaining aside, I mentioned in the previous catchup entry that we had planned dinner at the Parthenon the saturday before last. It was initially supposed to be a quite large event. Not only would my family be there and John and company from the d&d group, but trip and candi had also said they would show and it was always possible that oatmeal would pop over as well...though based on past performance, sorta unlikely. I had also extended an invite to anne and her friend sunday. In the end when I had been planning a group of up to 16, we had just 8 people. Trip and candi bailed, oats was nowhere to be found, luigi was out of town, and richard and sarah were caught in traffic and couldn't make it through the lake effect snow and gridlock. I was supposed to give Anne a ride to the event, and I had thought that with the expedition, it would be no problem to transport everyone. What I hadn't counted on was the expedition was already mostly packed up with boxes and all I had was the taurus which would never fit six people. I offered to stack my sisters on top of one another to make room for her but in the end she demured. It turns out the sunday couldn't make it because she had a busy schedule going including a stint on jury duty.

So in the end it was me, the family, john, melissa, and butch and I thought things went quite spiffy. The family and I ended up gtting to the resturant around a hour before the reservations. We had been up at vietnamese town because my mom had wanted to show my grandma the place and even the most generous person has to admit there's really not much to see. We ended up sitting at the resturant bar for around 40 minutes before everyone else showed up. From there we kept waiting for another 30 minutes or so until a call from richard told us he was caught in traffic and that we should start without him. It wasn't until we had finished the meal except dessert that he called to say that there was no way he could make it up there in time and had just decided to go home.

A couple of post dinner funnies.

It turned out that no one out of my family really cared for the greek place. They had nothing positive to say about it. I didn't find htis out for quite a while because their first question when we got into the car and had driven off was is that girl (melissa) bulemic? Heh, they were like, she ordered two entrees! Will she go and puke it up? When I commented that I had certainly scarfed down more food their take on it, rightly I guess, is that I look it. I never got around to telling melissa this, though I'm sure she would have thought it was a hoot. As for their take on everyone else...they thought john was good looking and seemed bright. Hey, anyone can have a day of poor perception. I don't remember exactly what they had to say about Butch, it's simply been too long.

Oh well, so that's that. I think I'm pretty much caught up on pictures. Other than a few shots of the empty apartment I'm sure no one wants to see.

What Video Game Character Are You? I am Kong.I am Kong.

Strong and passionate, I tend to be misunderstood, sometimes even feared. I don't want to fight, I don't want to cause trouble, all I ask is a little love, and a little peace. If I don't get what I want, I get angry, and throw barrels and flaming oil at whatever's stopping me. What Video Game Character Are You?
