Here is a photo of the girls before they left for the wedding. I hope you like Coadster's dress. You're going to see it in pictures again next week for Homecoming.
Today was another beautiful day. I keep thinking that every weekend will be the last nice one, and then there's always more. I'm not complaining. I love warm weather and I was able to run six days this week. It's just that my body is ready for a little rest, and I won't go into hibernation mode until it starts getting a little cooler outside.
I only caught a little bit of the Steelers game today. When we first got to The Vine, there were still tons of Bears fans hanging out. Yes, I do consider myself a Bears fan, but unfortunately, that game was lost before it started. None of our guy friends showed up, but since we were the only Steeler fans with a table, we let a bunch of people I'd never met before sit with us and there was much bemoaning of the how bad the Hawkeyes suck this year too. I guess all that's left for me to say at this point is, go Cubs!
At 4:30 I dashed over to the Bijou to meet my other friends to watch King of Kong:A Fistful of Quarters. It was actually pretty good. If you ever want to feel really sane and not at all nerdy in comparison, you should go see this movie. I know I can be weirdly obsessive about shit, but I'm too lazy to be totally OCD like the one guy in this film.
The other weird thing about it, was that they showed a lot of footage from the video game olympics in Ottumwa in 1982. It was really strange to see the town the way it was when I was in high school. I hardly ever go downtown when I go back to visit, and it doesn't look like it used to anyway. It brought back some memories, looking at the inside of the video game arcade where I used to hang out and spend all my detasseling money and seeing the movie theater where my sister worked for several years, exactly the way it used to look.
The rest of the evening, I actually did boring practical things and got caught in a huge downpour and thunderstorm while bringing in groceries from my car.
