the only earth?

this week in review

Monday brought a return to pubquiz, and the reminder of our general ignorance of pretty much everything. It also brought cheap beer and nachos; so, on balance, it was a worthwhile endeavor. Before that, I caught up with people protesting about immigration policy and took a bunch of pictures. After pub quiz I stayed up late putting them on the internet [metblogs].

Which resulted in sleeping in and working late on Tuesday.

It was meeting day and Manischewitz night on Wednesday for Rachel's annual seder. This year, we sort of forgot about the Afikomen hiding/finding procedure so I went home with a Cadbury creme egg to eat tonight. It was my first of the season, but I will need to start scoping out the after Easter sales so that I can refill my freezer with enough to make it through another year. For what it's worth, they really are much better fresh.

Tonight was metroblogging night at the Garage, a monthly excuse sample thrilling flavors of mashed potatoes with a side of inexpensive beer and people from the site. After the eating, drinking, and hanging out, I was ready to go home and eat that creme egg while watching the O.C. instead of going to Easy Street for mariachi rock. I think the show ran out of plot a season ago, but I still feel compelled to watch it. Next year, I swear that I'm cutting those kids off. They can go to college without me.

Tomorrow is Band of Horses at Neumo's time. They're playing tonight, but going two nights in a row seems excessive even though their new album is better than good. I have an extra ticket, e-mail me if you want to go.
