Saturday? Where were you?

Got together with Danny today, and had a good time. This morning, first thing we swung by the Chesapeake Bagel Bakery for breakfast...run by a really nice couple of ladies... they make yummy bagels from scratch, and we saw some of the cutest little kids come in from the next door karate studio. After Breakfast, we swung over to the local Barnies for a place to hang out before going to see monsters, inc... to pass the time , we did a little low-end wargaming, punching each other out with champions characters for a bit. We got caught up in that, and general chatter, so we just skipped the movie and walked around a bit, to unkink after sitting in the coffee shop for about three hours, and having a chai.

fishies roomAfterwards, we visited the IGFA Museum. It's an interesting facility... beautiful architecture, and a lot of nifty exhibits... I was really impressed with the level of upkeep on the boardwalk (I fell in love with the little turtles following us, looking for some snackies...) , and actually learned stuff in a nice fashion, too. Got to see Ernest Hemingway's boat, too, and it was mucho nifty.

The Museum was a pure impulse trip...we were en route to Dave & Busters, and just saw the sign. We figured it'd be kitchy, so what the heck. I'm still shocked that a fisihng museum was interesting and pleasant to visit. :)

Afterwards, we went out for a late lunch, which was delicious, and we talked seriously about where we're going in life. Dan seems to think he'll be better off teaching after he finishes getting his degree, then he can get to resting comfortably on summer vacations, plus all of his test will be written for his assorted classes. Honestly, I think he'd be better off teaching elementary or college classes.

I see only wonderful things in my future...growth, happiness, and more time with my sweetie and pals. feels good. :)

Speaking of which, my sweetheart should be getting home soon from her night out, so I'll wrap up. G'nite, LJ!

Thanks again today, and every day to all the veterans out there that worked to make the world a better place.

It is appreciated more than can be said.


Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more...
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favored rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect.

-King Henry the Fifth, Act: III, Scene: I
William Shakespeare

What to do...what to do...

I'm going to go out for some fresh air...do a little laundry, get some walkies in, and take some supper with Dave & Cathi. I'm not going to stay out too late, as it's a "school night". I estimate that I'll be home between nine and ten, and will give a full report at that time. :)

Now, to gather loose clothing into a manageable pile for the haul... I'm going to walk to the 'mat, because the sky's clear, and the air is cool... hey, maybe I'll get my mac from them tonight! I'll probably launch about 6.
