Friday night after work I met up with a bunch of my former co-workers to celebrate the end of our old accounting system. (Geek - much?) Anyway...the system we used to work on/test was FINALLY going away (meaning that all the clients had successfully converted to the new system - at last) and we decided to celebrate. It was GREAT to see them all again, and made me miss the 'good old days' way back when.
I met them all in Boston for a little while, met up with Jim for dinner at 'The Grille', and then ended the evening back at his sister's house with drinks and games.
Saturday was pretty low-key all day long. We met up with some friends later that night over at one of their houses to view a bootleg of a certain Broadway show that was up for Best Musical last year (2009). It didn't win, but I can certainly understand why it was nominated. The female lead won the Tony for leading actress in a musical, so if you're up on your Tony history (I know at least one reader who now knows what show it was) you can figure out which show we watched. It was a fairly decent DVD of the show, and I was THRILLED that we had the chance to see it...especially since I never get to NYC as often as I like. Thank you XXXXX for inviting us!!! I'll leave your name out of this - you know....so you don't get arrested or anything. :-)
The 'viewing' group!! (thanks for the picture, B!!!)
On Sunday, Jim and I met up with some of my college friends and their families and we went to the Deerfield Fair in Deerfield, NH. Needless to say, it was more of a giant carnival than a 'traditional' country fair. We had a great time seeing them, but I don't think we'll make that particular fair a regular destination. It was made up of about 75% food vendors, and the clientele was......questionable, at best. Yikes.
It made for some amazing people watching though....that was fun.
Yes...Fried Ice Cream....candy bars....Oreos....Twinkies.....
I cant imagine why so many Americans are overweight?!?!?
This made me laugh....no kissing!!!
Yesterday, I spent the day at home putting all the storm windows in, doing several loads of laundry, and 'general' house keeping stuff, as it was rainy and I had the day off. I also watched the 'Live at Lincoln Center' production of 'South Pacific' which I've had saved on my DVR for weeks at this point...it was SO good. I'm glad I held on to it and didn't delete it. I'm going to keep it around for a while so hopefully Jim will watch it too...I think he'd really like it.
Anyway...I'm getting back to work....have a GREAT day!!!
