I keep thinking I'm going to write full-length posts for some of the things I've been doing, but it's just not happening. So, then, here's the essence of it:

In summary: It may not all be good, but at least it's good enough.

This weekend was the DC dinner party, a repeat of last year's exciting event. So, I went, had a reasonable time, met some cats, and came home. )

Well, I did eventually make it safely home last night, although not nearly as quickly as I might have liked. I'd really like to know what was going on in Albany this weekend, though. Traffic and talking, that's all there was... )

It was clearly a sign of impending bad luck for my weekend when Thursday afternoon I started to notice the early symptoms of a head cold. But I didn't let that stop me from going away and having fun - mostly. )

These things do happen, in casinos... )

A question for gamers - looking for some feedback. )

I spent most of last weekend in the DC area. For reference, most of the cast of characters are the same as those from the dinner party in April.

Dancing )

MD Ren Faire and leather )

A couple of days of vacation )

Friday night I made what may perhaps have the best decision I've made in ages. It had been a hectic day at work, and I knew the weekend was going to be pretty crazy. So, instead of packing and leaving as soon as possible after work, I took a nap for about an hour, and then took a shower, before collecting my things and getting on the road.

The rest of the weekend turned out a little like an LJ-roll call. )

Last night as I was driving home, I saw a thunderstorm off to the left of the car. I was driving north, and it was traveling from west to east, so it was approaching me. Initially I didn't think much of it. However, I was listening to a radio dramatization of The Hobbit. There's something a bit spooky about listening to Smaug chuckling and wreaking havoc, and then watching flashes in the sky come closer...

The weekend in reverse, since I began at the end )

So, Saturday I did end up going to Great Adventure after all. I still hadn't quite made up my mind at 8:45 that morning, while getting dressed and talking to [ profile] blackfog and [ profile] turtle_morn on AIM. But I did go, and had fun. )

I have read a fair number of Regency romances. One of the common entertainments described is the house party, where a number of couples and older singles would go visit at a friend's estate for several days or a week at a time. There would be a variety of amusements planned, and a fair amount of empty time for socialization. Neighbors would come for some of the activities, and then return home in the evenings.

Holiday weekends at [ profile] blackfog and [ profile] amy_pearlman's house in PA are not too different in concept from the Regency-era house party, I've come to believe.

So this is what happened this weekend. )

Meanwhile, the one thing I didn't manage to do when I meant to was to wish [ profile] caniswolfie a very happy birthday. Hope he had one anyway.
