Video gameage last night at the [livejournal.com profile] den_of_doom was awesome. Narc was simultaneously the worst and best game ever made.

Today will be running around and getting some things done/bought and hopefully hooking up with people at some point.

[livejournal.com profile] iolarah, [livejournal.com profile] batphantom and I are planning on hitting The Apothecary tonight. It's Drum 'n Bass night, and it's $2 cover before 11 ($4 afterwards.) I really want to go someplace new and hear some different music. If you are interested in coming, I have a map after the cut
MAP! )
If we see you there, awesome. If not, then we'll most likely see you on Saturday ;)

EDIT!!! [livejournal.com profile] iolarah and I have been stricken low by THE CURSE OF FRIDAYS. Headaches for all! This'll teach us to try and go someplace new :-/

I am pizzosting this from an IBM T20 laptop in my living room! I finally brought it home, as no one is using it at work.

Now I can sit in the cool breeze, sip margaritas* and watch Matthew enjoy the delights of the front window!

*Note: Margarita does not actually exist.

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

Last night [livejournal.com profile] iolarah and I watched the Global Frequency pilot (Based on Warren Ellis' comic of the same name) that has been leaked onto the internet. I hope that some brave network picks it up, because it's damned good!

Last night was also the first real test of the Scummbox Radio system. I installed Winamp 5.09 on the livingroom computer, dropped the icecast stream quality sightly, queued up a couple fun songs, and off we go! The stream and web controls both worked flawlessly! It was fun sitting on the futon watching full screen visualizations to Aphex Twin and µ-ziq :D The playlist interface needs some tweaking, as the TV is running at 640x480, but that's just windowdressing.

All and all it was a good night.

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 night was great right up to the point where [livejournal.com profile] iolarah, [livejournal.com profile] saucyvixen, [livejournal.com profile] _rivethead_ and I realized we were dead tired at 11pm.

Apologies go out to [livejournal.com profile] margrock and [livejournal.com profile] endeneu as we DID have every intention of coming back downtown and hanging out.

Today will be Getting [livejournal.com profile] iolarah New Knitting Needles day.

Also: I'm going to listen to a stupid amount of L7. See the subject on who to blame for that :)

Video game night at the [livejournal.com profile] den_of_doom rocked! There was light saberin', hard punchin', car crashin' and Venture Brothers! Sweet! It was great to see everyone who showed up!

Afterwards, [livejournal.com profile] _tish_, [livejournal.com profile] akujin00 and I went to Savage to watch the deadness and have CELEBRATORY BEVERAGES! And the promise of more tomorrow!

So now, now I sleep.
