this weekend i unpacked more stuff like my dvd player and computer. still no cable, still no internet, still no bookcases set up (so boxes of dvds and books are everywhere), but otherwise things are sort of falling into place.

saturday eric and i went to see ‘the chronicles of riddick’ which was pretty cool. i think i may have become a vin diesel fan. i know i know! sigh.

sunday i went to see the evanston fireworks, though eric wasn’t able to get in touch with ozzie and jesse. but, lo and behold, when we got to the South Blvd. beach, ozzie and jesse were standing right there! we battled the gnats and lake-bugs and saw some great fireworks. we all got faked out like 3 times by false finales. there were some kids behind us talking about abraham lincoln (you don’t know who abraham lincoln is?? our 16th president??? he looked like a magician is this sounding familiar?!?) and some idiots behind us shooting (illegal) fireworks off over a crowded beach in full view of the evanston police.

monday ozzie and jesse came over to eric & jon’s and we grilled some sausages and burgers and ate lots of snacks and drank a lot of beer. jon had a copy of the latest harry potter movie, so we watched that (after some confusion involving hooking eric’s computer up to the tv) too, although the opening title screen looked more like ‘natty notter’ since it was in russian or something. there was a lot of passing out afterwards, then some adult swim later on. saw the episode of ‘futurama’ where bender turns into a girl robot and the ‘family guy’ that takes place after the apocalypse.

today i finally got this one dvd project out the door…after a whole year. i can’t help but think that i would rather be unpacking or cleaning up the new apartment right now.
