As it turns out I may have overdone it with Wii Fit. On Saturday morning I bent down to give the kitties their food and something in my lower back went. I spent the entirety of the weekend on the couch, moving only when I had to. Jules had a migraine on Sunday so we had to miss D&D. We watched about 10 or 12 episodes of Lost and I napped awhile, and resultantly I had a horrible night of sleeplessness. When I finally got to sleep I started having Lost-inspired dreams (what a shocker) and woke up all disoriented. My day of work was quite stressful as well, so I’m trying to take it easy tonight. *sigh* I think I’ll go to bed a bit earlier than usual.
Also, here is my new haircut, as promised earlier. I’m getting used to it now, but I still can’t decide if I like it yet. It’s nice to have a change though.
I couldn’t resist taking this picture despite the metric arseload of times it has been photographed.
Jules, Nat, and I flew down to San Francisco to spend Memorial Day weekend with Jon. It was really great to see him again (I miss him terribly) and it felt like old times again. It’s too bad it’s so expensive to travel. :(
Almost every moment of the trip felt like a highlight; after all I’d never seen SF before and I was really happy to be there. We had lots of wonderful meals together, spent the nights holed up in the hotel room playing GTA4 together, and walked all over downtown. One awesome thing we did was visit Alcatraz. It was every bit as cool as I expected! I was amazed at how ridiculously tiny the cells were (barely big enough for a toilet, sink, and bedframe–though the solitary confinement cells were larger.) The audio tour was really well done and featured former inmates and employees of the prison. The best part was upstairs: the hospital. It was very Silent Hill looking. :D
We also visited the Golden Gate bridge and walked halfway across it (it was extremely windy, cold, and foggy!) and had a decent meal at the insanely busy In-N-Out Burger. We also saw the new Indy movie, which I loved. It was really well within the spirit of the previous films and I was pleased to see it still didn’t take itself too seriously.
