On Tuesday, I did the standard work thing. Matt showed me a Star Wars fan film called IMPS
, the second installation of TROOPS, and I loved it. Theoretically they are going to produce eight (total) twenty-ish minute films, one at the beginning of each month. When I got home, I watched another fan film called Revelations
that Matt put on DVD for me. It was pretty good for a fan film. The effects were nice, the acting was ok, but the sound was all off and a little distracting. I also watched Episode IV. I watched those while I helped finari
work on her skirt - I did the pleats though. Later I showed her how to set a waist band, so I won't be able to teach her much more, heh.
Wednesday morning started out with a twist when I narrowly avoided an accident with an SUV whose driver didn't know how to drive. She pulled out of a driveway and promptly did a 180 across Swisher because she slid through some water and didn't know how to control a skid. Dork. Luckily I saw it in plenty of time, and although I had to slow down rapidly, I didn't have to slam the breaks. I got to have lunch with annawick
and Lex (Yay!), which is always fun.
Our roommate moved out after not occupying our spare room for months and not paying rent for two of those months. She got four - I gave her Oct & Nov rent-free while she was looking for a job, and she didn't pay April or May. Although in all fairness, I told her if she moved her things before the end of the month I'd call May a wash. I don't think I'll ever see April either. /shrug. It's better off this way, regardless. She never stayed at our place, anyway.
We have our house again. I'm thinking we won't have another roommate, maybe. Of them all, half have been on time with rent, the other half slid and got several months rent-free. It's partly because we don't really need the money or a roommate, so we've let friends on difficult times stay. Actually, it's been family that have slid on rent. Hm. Friends have always come through.
After she left, I spent the evening with Matt. While he watched Schindler's list, I read a book. It was a comfortable, cozy evening.
Thursday day was a normal work day, but Thursday evening I went dancing. Since some of the artists joined us, we decided to really dress up. I wore my floor-length white and silver jacket, plus leggings and boots. Lots of fun was had.
I took Friday off to get some things taken care of around the house. That morning I went fabric shopping, and found an awesome deal on some black cotton twill and white cotton gauze for the jedi costume that Matt's making. We'll be dying the gauze since the only colors in cotton gauze we could find were pastels, heh. I helped finari
finish up her skirt, which looks marvelous, as I knew it would. That evening we played Star Wars d20. Matt made an adjustment in time period, so we're now playing during Episode I rather than 4000 years before. Should be interesting...
Saturday morning I cleaned house a bit, then that afternoon I picked up the guys at the airport. We hung out, and I made the guys watch Revelations and IMPS and went through Shaun's anime to pick out what to watch this year. We're going to watch Trigun and Witch Hunter Robin. We started with Witch Hunter Robin while Matt made machine-gun noises with the sewing machine in the TV room. Witch Hunter Robin is very cool so far - one I may consider picking up.
Sunday was very mellow, as usual. I went to church, then hung out with the guys (there will be a lot of that coming up this week) and watched more Witch Hunter Robin. Matt finished his outer robe.
It is now Monday. All my friends are off work today. I guess it's fair since I took Friday off, but still. :P
