Let's Catch Up, Shall We?


Friday, I had lunch with my BFF Jack at Tokyo, our favorite local Japanese restaurant. After one of our dinners at Tokyo about three months ago, a strange thing happened to me at Sam's regarding said BFF which I wrote about here.

This time, when I got back to work after lunch, a song came on my XM radio which Jack had posted about on his blog back in January. It's an obscure song (at least to me...on the Laurie label, by the way) which I had never heard played on XM before. Immediately after that song played, a song came on by his favorite performer which is played rarely on XM. The song that played right after that was "Whenever I Call You Friend." Awwww. I'm telling you, there's something cosmically weird about us eating at Tokyo when nobody else is with us. Weird, I say.

Friday night, we went to my niece's performance with the dance group at her high school's homecoming football game. It was the 25th anniversary of the school so they had former Stars members also do a routine. Who appears right in front of our eyes but our friend Lonnie whose daughter was a former Stars member. I have some really sweet pictures of Lonnie with his daughter. Who would have guessed Lonnie was such an old softy? Another weird coincidence was the advertisement poster directly in front of our seats. I took a few pictures of it, but it will only seem oddly coincidental to some of you and you know who you are.


I threw a birthday bash for my baby sister Bonnie. We sang some karaoke, ate lots of food, drank lots of drinks and played some games. One question on one of the games asked, "What is the lowest prime number?" A debate ensued about whether or not 1 is a prime number. It isn't. Ask Terry. During the heat of the debate Clay said, "Well, I don't know if it's a prime number but I do know it's the loneliest number."


We went to my sister's house to celebrate Alec's 21st birthday and had spaghetti and meatballs which he helped cook. It was fabulous. At the very end of the party, as I was about to take my last picture, my camera broke. So, all of my pictures from such a fabulous weekend are stuck on my memory card.


Tonight, I'm going to Best Buy and try out that extended warranty I bought when I bought my camera three years ago. Wish me luck. From what I read on the internet, it might not go so well.

Weird Tokyo-ness. But cooool. :) ("BFF" makes me giggle.) Heehee.

Sounds like a great weekend! I'm jealous! :)

Jen - It was fun, fun, fun 'til my daddy took my T-bird away. :)

BFF makes me giggle too. I didn't know anything about the 25th anniversary until I saw it on the front page of the paper. Man, I love living in a small town!

I had to go look up prime numbers on Wikipedia. I remembered correctly, just not why.

Mmm, spaghetti and meatballs!

Adela - It was a neato torpedo weekend. That's some small town lingo, right there.
