Last night was a fine, fine affair at the house of Holly Hobby and Agent Black. I avoided most of he spoilery stuff regarding Matrix 2 while still insinuating myself into the movie discussion. Some Zombies! was played, but once again we were ambitious and started too late to finish the game (didn't get to see enough of the military base, but the Mall is a treat.) Oh, and I drank! (Including an incident where Holly Hobby smacked my arm, causing me to throw my beer on Regent's foot. Hee.)

People who were talking about glasses shopping with me, what time next week would be good? I'm off work at 4.

And now, a conundrum! Should I take my night off Monday to see Matrix 2, or should I take Thursday off to enable clubbing?

* Starting small: American-controlled Iraq might break with OPEC.
* Well, I personally don't think it's a big issue that Bush can't find the 'weapons of mass destruction.' As aforementioned, I was in this whole thing because I was anti-Hussein, not the WMD excuse.
* Good lord. Freakin' politics are just money now. People wonder why citizens are disenfranchised, but that's the way the rich like it, so their bought votes mean more. Gah.
* And the aftermath of the Texas 53.

Next week is hell on wheels for me, but you might want to go without me anyway, since I just spent my optical budget on housepaint.

But you'll have such a nice-looking abode!
But you won't be able to see it!

It's just like that stupid Christmas story, where the chick sells her hair or whatever.

Heh. Either way, I will let you know, and if you can't make it, that's cool too.

What? Is it Charles Dickens? Does she break her glasses? No wait, that's Twilight Zone.

Heh, no, it's "The Gift of the Magi" or something like that. She cuts off and sells her hair, to buy him a nice chain for his beloved pocketwatch. He sold his beloved pocketwatch to get her some nice combs for her beautiful long hair. And they both love their presents because of the sacrifices that the other made. And blah blah blah.

And that's why I don't celebrate Christmas.

Well, no, that's not why. But it could be, now.

Hmm. I dunno about the clubbing/matrix issue, but if you end up going to see Matrix 2 tomorrow night, Paleollama and I might be interested in seeing it with you. :) We're probably going then.

Monday versus Thursday
This spells doom for the Scourging of Rockville on Thursday I presume?

Personally, I'd vote for going to see the Matrix:Reloaded...but only so we can then discuss it evenly.

And my foot still hasn't recovered!

Okay, that's a lie. But man, it was so chilly out Friday night that I had to go home and soak in a hot bath to get my feet feeling normal again.

I vote you see the Matrix movie, because avoiding those conversations where people are talking about it will become progressively more difficult. =)
