Independence Day Weekend = Awesome

Posted 6 July 2004

My Fourth of July weekend was great. I was invited to go to the botanical gardens on Saturday with some friends, but rain unfortunately killed those plans. So, after getting a haircut, I instead went over to the UCM house, watched The Usual Suspects, and ate some particularly tasty food. And then I played Halo with Justin Pawela until 4:30a Sunday morning.

I went to church on Sunday, and went to Panera Bread with some friends for lunch. Later that afternoon I went to the Klinkner's house for a potluck picnic, and around 8:30p we all went to go see the fireworks. Then I played Halo with Justin until a little after 5:00a Monday morning.

Monday? I just slept until 4:00p.

My anecdote from the weekend: Thinking I would need to have money for the bus ride to the botanical gardens, I stepped into PlexMart (the C-Store?) and asked if they could make change for a $20 bill. No, of course not. They don't give out change. Then my eyes lit upon small, individually-wrapped candies. How much do these cost? 2 cents.

I think you know where that went.
