Out in the big blue room.

Just got home a few minutes ago. Earlier this evening, dvorak and I went to a lovely fondue dinner at Melting Pot, which was a great deal of fun. Then, I dropped him off at home, and went to see Spirited Away with Nyarla, huey, sitz, and jenn. It was a great movie, and we were pleasantly surprised to discover that it wasn't dubbed. Though, Nyarla and I do want to see the dubbed version, since the person who does the voice for Chihiro (the main character) is none other than Daveigh Chase, who provided the voice for Lilo in Lilo & Stitch. Nyarla and I even made hurricane popcorn at the theater, having smuggled in our own arare and furikake. :)

After the movie, we wandered across the street to... uh, some place whose name has completely escaped me, but they have... pool tables! We added ourself to the waiting list for a table, and camped outside listening to an insanely bad stream of music. Our table finally became ready, and sitz, jenn and I wandered in. Nyarla and huey opted to stay outside, as the really bad music was inside, but louder. Eventually, they snuck off, and sitz, jenn, and I played silly pool. I am really really out of practice, and played horribly, but I still had lots of fun, despite the music, and the LOUD. We ended up leaving just before the place (whatever its name is) closed at 1:30, and sitz and jenn gave me a ride back to my car, which was at the other end of a very large, very deserted parking lot. Yay, them!

And now I am tired, and sweaty (the pool place was very stuffy), and my wrists aren't entirely happy with me (held them - particularly the left one - oddly to make (or rather, try to make) a couple of shots), but I am happy, and am hoping for a good night's sleep to top off a wonderful day. And, assuming that Nyarla and I are both coherent tomorrow, we have an assault on DC planned, and I'm pondering getting another piercing while we're out. We shall see!

Hope you all are having great weekends, too. Night night!
