Saturday we ventured over to B.’s sister’s to celebrate her brother’s birthday. It was good times. B.’s brother in law is a bit of a techno geek like myself. He had the house wirelessly setup for music. It was very cool! Basically with a remote that functions very much like an ipod you can listen to Internet radio and play music from any shared network drives. He had three remotes so there was a song battle to add songs to the queue. That seemed to provide hours or entertainment. Not that song! *Delete from queue* You deleted my song! Why… listen to THIS then… and so it went. Her cousin Allison and her BF Jay were also over. They ended up coming over to our place after dinner; as did her brother. We were all thinking of heading out to a local pub but everyone was pretty zonked so we had a few more beer and talked. I think Jay and Steve stayed up to watched F-1 racing after I went to bed.
Sunday we did a fair bit of running around after everyone left. We hit Zehr’s, Home Depot, Sportchek then got home to walk the dog. In the evening we watched Rachel Getting Married. I was expecting a girly crapstory but it was far from that. Sure there was a wedding but it wasn’t really the focus of the film. The film was more about people, conflict, relationships, death, loss, addiction… it was pretty heavy. The movie was well acted and full of curious cultural elements that were showcased throughout the wedding. I’m not really certain which cultures were celebrated here, but they certainly knew how to party!
