back in the armpit of despair

Why did it have to rain for six of the nine days of my leave period? That sucked, sucked, sucked. But I did see Accepted on Sunday with Ryan, and it was pretty cool. The next night, Monday, I watched Andre Agassi's first-round match in the U. S. Open. I also got a brief bike ride in, since there was a window of about twelve hours during which it didn't rain. Tuesday night was marked my board games at Ryan's house. Not exactly the most exciting way to spend a night, but it was the best of the alternatives in front of me, considering it was Tuesday. The board games weren't bad though.

I had brought my brother a crate of eighteen Budweisers as a gift, intending to give it to him whenever I saw him over leave. There was just one problem with that plan - I never saw my brother. And as soon as I got back to Groton, I started working on the beer; it was all gone by Sunday.

Friday was a light workday, and I stood duty on Saturday, but I've been relaxing ever since. Yesterday I went to Providence Place, the gigantic mall in Providence, and bought a couple of books. Today I saw Beerfest, which was really good. Now I've got Spaceballs in the DVD player, and a beer on the table as I recline in my lounge chair and dread returning to work tomorrow. We actually have to do a fair amount of work over the next two weeks.
