The weekend is off to somewhat of  a weak start. The BBQ that I was SO looking forward to didn't happen. An odd change of plans stood in the way of my grilled steak, dammit!

I'll have to make up for it when we hit the town with some other friends tonight, Vinnie's, here I come!

Nathan, beware, I'll be sneaking up on you with an energy sword or whack you with the (gravity) hammer of doom!
