Lucky day…or something like that

My car’s odometer turned over 77,777 miles on my way to work today. I seem to recall somewhere that that’s supposed to bring good luck for the day.


The weekend was a study in partying, deflowering, and talking animals. The partying was a blast; some of our friends had just closed on their new house, so they hosted a combination housewarming/halloween party. I started teaching lightgatherer and one of our hosts how to florentine, which is, I think, a worthwhile way to spend an evening in good company. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, in a manner of speaking.

Saturday, we had a Matrix double-feature at the home of a different set of friends. They had never seen any of the movies before, so we got to deflower them. 🙂

Sunday, Shelly brought Kelly and I to Eptot and MGM. I haven’t been to Eptot in eight years, and haven’t been to MGM ever; we had a good time, even though the corporate juggernaut that is Disney really isn’t spending enough money to maintain their parks these days. (I don’t know if I’m just getting more jaded, but the parks do seem to be getting a bit shabby these days.)

There’s more going on, but it properly belongs in a different post.
