Weekend Wrap-up

Our weekend opened with sushi and sake from Wegmans, which is still the best "cheap, pre-packaged" sushi we've found in the area. We ate shrimp tempura while finishing the second season of Game of Thrones, which was good but felt a little unnecessarily drawn out.

On Saturday night, we took one of our annual trips into D.C. where we parked at a meter that was etched with "Monday through Friday, through 10 PM" and augmented with a sticker reading "Also Saturday, through 10 PM" underneath a street sign that said "Monday through Sunday, through 6:30 PM". Not sure who to believe, we paid the meter at the exorbitant rate of 25 cents per 8 minutes. We then walked over to Annie's townhouse to celebrate Marc's 30th Birthday with meats and beers.

Sunday was the lazy day -- I mowed the lawn, watered the tomatoes, and said hello to all of the neighbours who were also out doing yard work. I hadn't spoken to any of them in three years, since the only time we bond with neighbours is when it snows appreciably and the street comes together to shovel.

For dinner on Sunday, I had the prime rib dip and a Guinness at Red Robin, paid for with the ridiculous tax refund debit card that the state of Virginia forced upon us. We then watched Zero Dark Thirty, which was mostly boring, and went to bed.

How was your weekend?
