"My Abridged Weekend," by Feren

Saturday was the day to pick up my prescription (I managed to recover my insurance plan card, thus saving me who knows how many dollars) so that I can see what good these anti-inflammatory drugs will do for my wrists and arms. While waiting for my prescription to be filled at the pharmacy I skipped over to the CompUSA down the street and picked up some new computer items, most notably a new ergonomic keyboard and a mouse pad with a gel wrist rest. The rest of the day was mostly uneventful, up until the point I discovered I can't imbibe alcohol while taking these drugs, and my prescription lasts a month. Dammit.

Sunday saw Ra sicking up his breakfast. This is the first time he's been sick in nearly a week and a half, as best as I can figure it, so I guess something must be going right. About 10:30am was Jen's arrival, which was pleasant. Aureth arrived around noon or so, and we went over to the new MFF hotel to check things out. Then we did the con meeting thing, which went very perfectly smoothly when all things are considered. I was even able to wrangle some tech talk during the break, which encouraged me just enough to being to believe that just maybe this whole art show and registration process will integrate in a seamless fashion this year . After the meeting was wrapped up Jen, Aureth, Neowolf and myself went to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner. That was a nice change of pace for me, and it was also rather enjoyable to have dinner with my friends -- add into the equation that Joe's is about half a block or so away from the hotel and there is a great deal of convenience there. We ate, talked about things of no real consequence (chatting with one's friends about nothing in particular is one of life's little pleasures, and it is my recommendation that any opportunities to do so should be pounced upon and savored) and then called it an evening. We walked back to the hotel and bid good evening to Neo, and then made tracks back to my place. Aureth dropped off Jen and myself, since his plan was to head for home right away, while Jen opted to linger about my place for a bit. She watched an episode of The Sopranos and most of the Rocky Horror Picture Show with me before I chased her out of the apartment about 9:30pm (she has as long a drive home as Aureth). I puttered around a bit, then I hopped online and was reminded that despite everything...

...it's still very easy to feel completely alone in a crowd.

And that was my weekend.
