So yesterday the non-zombie state never occurred, so I never got around to posting anything about the mini-cottage weekend.

On friday, mid-morningish, [livejournal.com profile] brothermeynard IMs me and asks if [livejournal.com profile] iolarah and I would be interested in going up to the cottage with himself, [livejournal.com profile] madeofpoison and his mother (who later had to bail). A quick phone call home and we are in! Shortly thereafter it is declared a patio day and the office trucks off to The Red Lion for pitchers and wings (the jerked wings there are to DIE for.)

I get to leave a little early (honestly, BEST. FRIDAY. EVAR) to get beer and then go home in time to pack and such before [livejournal.com profile] brothermeynard and [livejournal.com profile] madeofpoison arrived. [livejournal.com profile] iolarah was finishing her cake transaction, so we packed quickly and off we went!

The trip went smoothly (aside from a tragic loss of Wendy's fries (but that was offset by FREE BURGER!)) and we made it to Honey Harbor in excellent time. [livejournal.com profile] brothermeynard and I had a quick swim and then we all watched Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl. Then it was pass-out time.

Saturday was started with coffee and a pancake breakfast. We then enjoyed a lake bath, then naps. Beers on the front deck and then a quick jaunt into town for some extra supplies. Chicken burgers and spaghetti. After it got dark and the mosquitoes got bad, we watched Team America: World Police and Cannibal: The Musical (also known as Alfred Packer: The Musical).

Sunday was drinking more beer on the front deck, and lamenting the fact that we had to leave. The trip home was fairly uneventful (SYL VAN!) and not TOO plagued with traffic problems.

Many thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] brothermeynard and [livejournal.com profile] madeofpoison for throwing together an AWESOME weekend with little time to prepare for it. You guys rule :D

So last night a couple of co-workers and I went up Jarvis to the Red Lion after work with the intention of having a couple drinks. After the third pitcher, one of my co-workers decided to e-mail [livejournal.com profile] iolarah and say that they had kidnapped me with the intent to get wasted. So she ended up coming out as well and enjoying a bit of pub fare for dinner. So after about 6 hours, we finally tottered off to catch the street car to Bathurst, and the Bathurst bus to Lakeshore (!!?). Goddamn Bathurst bus.

All and all a very good time was had. Ubar-geeky conversations, and a lot of Keith's :)

Yesterday it was decided at the office that it was patio weather. So after closing up shop, we all went to The Madison (just north east of Bloor and Spadina) for many pints, nachos and wings. It was awesome. A tonne of geek conversations and work related chats. Defiantly an kick ass time!

I was a *little* destroyed when I got home ;)

The office is very quiet right now... I wonder why?

So HHGTTG (Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, to the uninitiated) was an unqualified success. They did it right. I was happy. And they even threw in nods to the original BBC TV show (which I loved.) The casting was good. The new additions (and there were plenty) were good. The guide entries were perfect. All in all I couldn't have asked for a better execution.

Many thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] otheronetruegod for the tickets and for the awesome pub time after the fact. I don't think anyone left the table unscarred :)

And now it's time to go to the Toronto Comic Con. Imma try and get Warren Ellis to sign my trade paperback of Red/Tokyo Storm Warning!
