Ah, another week eh? Feels like I posted only a couple of days ago. Oh yeah, thats because I did, my bad. So this week has been less eventful than last week, it even had less meetings!!!
So Friday night we got our nerd on. Firstly we had Mexican for dinner with a margarita, then headed to the museum. The Mexican was awesome, see the photo! Then at the museum we saw a narration of Asimovs ‘the Last Question’. It was apparently something that the museum had put together fifty years ago or so, then they did the showing, packed it away and forgot about it. This was the fourth rendition, each from times when someone rediscovered it in archives and resurrected it. And true to form this rendition came about because someone found a letter from Nimoy, who was the narrator. Basically it was Nimoy reading the Asimov short story and some cool slides and graphics on the planetarium dome.
Saturday we had a hike with Stella, Chad, Kat, and Nick. We headed up to the Dino Lot and walked along the Dinosaur Ridge then through the Red Rocks Park as well. All in all it turned into an eight mile hike, more than expected but not insanely so. It was a perfect day for a walk, sunny, not too warm, so much so that by the time we were a mile from the cars we were battling crowds.
After the hike we headed home and Earl baked a steak and kidney pie while I did an apple pie. We just managed to get them out of the oven before we headed out to see a movie with the hike crew, Life was the choice. The trailers made it out to be much more interesting than it actually was. I think my response was that it was monumentally pointless. So there you go, I recommend you don’t bother.
Sunday we were planning a sunrise hike. That fizzled when the weather looked as cloudy and likely to rain as it was. It didn’t rain but I was awake at sunrise and it was not at all colourful, so I went back to bed happy that we’d made the right choice. Earl and I got discussing and debating some interesting things…
Jac, Earl, and I still went to breakfast at the French Press. Turns out that wasn’t the best of ideas. On the plus side I learned that Earl was delivered by the town coroner. I guess he was the only one with any sort of medical doctorate at the time that Earl was born. Small towns, love it.
Having had an amusing but overrated food breakfast we headed down to Mutiny Information Bookshop. Cool sort of place that. Very inviting to sit and chill or browse the books. True to form I managed to buy too many books.
Sunday afternoon we had TJ and Constance over for dunch, that steak and kidney pie was the menu, with some veges. I know TJ is fussy but he didn’t seem to hate the meal, openly at least.
And that was about that as my week went. Work and a varied weekend. Winning.
