Well, it doesn’t usually happen, but once in a while, a weekend ends up being rather lousy. Not to say it wasn’t bad, but it just wasn’t what I was hoping it would be.

On Friday, I read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde during my shift. It was short but interesting, and now I am reading The Picture of Dorian Gray. After my shift, I had lunch with Mike at the Pita Pit. I had never been before, and I found it tasty. Then I went and hung out with boyfriend for a little bit, watched Casino Royale with the guys, and had a short trip to the store for ice cream thrown in there as well.

Saturday, I worked, and I picked up a shift for next Friday. So nine hours of my day this upcoming Friday will be spent at Bracken Library, and approximately twelve hours after my shift that night, I’ll be going back for another round. Oh well. It’s a good job, and I need the hours.

I ate lunch and hung around Bracken some more, knitting and listening to my iPod for an hour or so while waiting for my laptop to charge. I needed to go grocery shopping, but the bus schedules are different on Saturdays, so I didn’t get to go. My next best chance to go will probably be on Monday after work, when I will be hungry.

Anyway, boyfriend called to hang out. We went for a walk because I needed one, then came back and he ordered pizza with the guys because I already had dinner. We watched Muppet Treasure Island, and I’m pretty sure it’s been years since I’ve seen it. Tim Curry has such a good evil laugh! I was highly entertained, and Lemmy, Matt, and I all agreed that Beaker was probably our favorite. I also like Animal and the Swedish Chef, though they don’t come close to my love for Beaker.

Beaker and Bunsen

After the movie, boyfriend went back to his room to sleep, and I called Teddy because I just needed to talk to someone and I figured he would be awake. He wasn’t, but I woke him up and he kept talking to me. I stood outside talking to him for about an hour. I needed that; it was a good conversation. I made him laugh, he made me laugh, all was good. I miss that kid.

The house was dark and locked when I was going to go in to sleep, so I called Dom and he let me in. I went to bed, but there was a party going on in the house next door. Their music was so incredibly loud. I think I might have turned most of it out, but at 4:45 this morning, I heard them playing “I’m on a Boat” and I started laughing when I heard a very drunken girl singing along to it. Then I realized it was almost 5:00 in the morning and they were playing their music too loud and not letting me sleep. Rawr.

Today, even though it was my day off, I decided to come to Bracken and charge my laptop with one of the chargers available for checkout in my area. During this, since I had not received enough Muppet entertainment the night before, I checked out The Muppet Movie, which I had never seen, and The Emperor’s New Groove. I watched them both while knitting.

As for my project, it’s a scarf – yeah, another one. This is the pattern, and it is really easy to memorize. After watching two Muppet movies this weekend, the color of the yarn is really starting to make me think of Kermit the Frog. Haha.

Well, tomorrow is another day, and the beginning to another week…
