I went home Friday and had a busy weekend stomping around the old stomping grounds, going to Mass for 2.5 hours, snagging a Pizza King pizza, watching a rugby game and antiquing. Not in that order
I bailed from work early on Friday and made it home around 5 or so, upon which I was treated to broccoli cheese soup and garlicky bread. I then lay around for a bit and went to bed. Saturday dawned and I futzed around for a few hours before going to some antique stores in my quest to find a damned dining table. There was a wooden table for $32.50 at a little place downtown, but I had no way to transport it up here. I then headed for College Corner and stopped at a couple of places there. Still no dice, although I saw a work table that was exactly what I wanted in the way of a desk, except that it was too short in the legs. Instead I spent two dollars on 10 classic science fiction books, including a first edition of Philip K. Dick’s Ubik, which I’m going to sell on Ebay.
Then I went to see my friend’s rugby game at Miami of Ohio. They played in prom dresses; it was hilarious and muddy. The kicker on Miami’s team was really hot too. I had a slice of ‘za with the team afterward but then had to bail because I had 2.5 hours of church to attend. Mass was over around ten and I zonked out immediately. Sunday dawned and mom made breakfast pizza which was rather tasty. I then lay around reading some more [the rest of this week will be book reviews] and loaded my car up with my hand carved stone chess set, a bunch of random clothes, an old stereo with a phonograph, some old records and my antique gumball machine that I’d forgotten over Christmas. Then I had a tasty Easter dinner of baked ham, taters au gratin and sugar snap peas. Then I did dishes, hit the road, arrived in Cleveland around 6:45, unloaded all of my crap, had some leftover soup and went the hell to bed.
Now I’m at work.
