Catching up on hanging out

So the friday before last jmpava, coraa, neonelephant and profgreg came over to my place to play games. coraa skipped out on the first game, a Civilization like board game (but not the board game that the PC game was based off of, or the board game that was based off the PC game =) and shelleycat showed up halfway through it. When we were done with that profgreg went off to get some lunch and the rest of us all played a game of Qwirkle. When he got back coraa dropped out again and all the rest of us played a game of Race For the Galaxy, although shelleycat and i had to team up since the game only does up to four players. We got our asses handed to us, probably at least in part because i believe we'd played one real game of it before between us =P

After that it was time to head off to see Hellboy 2, so we headed over to the local theatre. When we got there there was no one waiting in line yet for the showing we wanted to see, so coraa jmpava neonelephant shelleycat and i decided to grab some quick dinner. Unfortunately we found that the Irish pub has shut down :( So we ended up going over to the pizza place next door instead. And then only one of us actually ordered pizza, the other four of us all split a number of appetizers. After that we headed back to the theatre and met up with.... more people than i care to try to name, especially since i don't know LJ nicks for some of them. All in all i believe there were 18 of us there in our group.

So we watched Hellboy 2, and it was awesome.

Afterwards most of us went across the street to the Mimi's cafe and had some desert and drinks before everyone headed home.

Sunday was spent hanging out with shelleycat. We decided to go to the pancake house place for brunch but got there an hour or two earlier than usual and actually had to wait ten or fifteen minutes for a table!

On monday coraa, jmpava and profgreg came over to watch Fullmetal Alchemist. We ordered pizza and watched about another 10 episodes before calling it a night around 1 am. (I believe coraa said we're about three or four episodes from the end of the first season.)

Tuesday night i had dinner with coraa and jmpava at Chili's after work, and wednesday i had dinner with coraa and jmpava and neonelephant at the greekish place near work.

Thursday i went home early and crashed since coraa and jmpava already had plans for the evening. Friday i gave them a ride to the airport at 5 and figured there wasn't much point in going back to work after that since i was already over 40 hours.

Saturday i went over to shelleycat's place and saw Wanted with her and some of her family. It certainly wasn't as good as Hellboy 2, but it was still pretty awesome. If one is okay with a movie about mostly amoral super-powered assassin weavers that is. (Yes, seriously. Weavers. They have a magic loom. Look, it makes more sense in the movie. :)

Stopped by work on the way home on sunday for a few hours and then spent the rest of the evening messing around with media file formats, mainly trying to undo the breakage to Audible files that i'd created trying to fix the breakage to flv file conversion =P
