While this upcoming weekend I'll be galavanting off to Geek.kon 2010, Crysta and I spent Saturday and Sunday... not being exciting and instead just relaxing. Sometimes you just need to have some fun that doesn't involve complicated circumstances.
We started off Saturday morning with the slightly less fun event of getting to the bank so we could get Crysta on the checking account. We've been meaning to do so for a while, but just hadn't been able to find the time (as I work most of the time the bank is actually open). We managed it though, so we got to at least check something off of our list.
Crysta and I went out and saw "The Other Guys" that afternoon which was surprisingly enjoyable. That's right, I liked a Will Ferrel movie. I won't say much more about the film other than Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson's exit from the film is fairly epic and hilarious.
On Sunday, Crysta's brother Nick stopped in (as he had been visiting their sister in Ohio). He spent the night here before heading out for Milwaukee this morning. I like Nick quite a bit, and he's a fairly interesting guy to talk to. We spent most of Sunday night introducing Nick to "The Guild" as he'd never watched it before. We ended up going through the first three seasons (and the music videos, and "The Guild Sells Out"), but didn't show him the few released season 4 episodes.
Because that might have been overkill.
It really wasn't that exciting a weekend, but it was fun none the less. Having Nick come over was also the motivation we needed to finally get around to cleaning up the last of the post moving mess from our dining room (which still lacks the table intended for that space).
There was a ton of packing materials and empty boxes left in there, and now that we've cleared it out, the apartment feels significantly larger than it did before. Now all we have to do to get everything going is get the furniture from Crysta's Dad's house and we're all set.
That will be a bit of a chore though, as we're going to have to rent a vehicle large enough to haul said furniture (as there isn't really any way it's fitting in my Ford Escort).
In the end though, it was a simple weekend, and I that's exactly what we needed.
