Goodbye Holiday Weekend, It Was Nice Knowing Ya

by Rainier on Sept. 8, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Stayed up late, slept in late, did some work, cleaned up the place after the in-laws left, ate, watched "Jersey Girl" (only because it's a Kevin Smith movie) and it was surprisingly decent, especially since J-Lo dies in the beginning of the movie.

Shortly after the in-laws left, we got a call from a friend who needs to go to work in the area first thing tomorrow morning, and she asked if she could crash at our place. So much for having the place to ourselves! It's starting to sound like we run a bed-and-breakfast!

Sounds like our neighbor is having a party. There's lots of yelling, laughing, hooting and hollering going on. Maybe I should pop in and join the festivities. :)
