, Audra, and I went to the ALL SKATE Roller Boogie last night at Chez-Vous. As you may have guessed, this was not my idea, but I try to be good, giving, and game, so I figured what the hell.. It was a good time, although I needed to take a break every time or three around the rink, as I’d guess the last time I wore roller skates was 15-20 years ago. The DJs they had were good, and none of us fell, so I can’t complain. Chez-Vous is Boston’s only roller rink, and it totally had the feeling of a business held together by passion and a strong family… Audra had gone to the ALL SKATE event in December, and she said the place was empty.. Last night, however, it was hoppin’, and there were plenty of people to watch when I was taking a panic break.
By the end of the night I started to remember how to skate, although I was still really nervous.. I managed to do something to my ankle too, as it is sore today, but such is the price of fun…. Oh yeah, they had a concession with fried dough, and it was great….. Mmmm…..
What an awesome weekend in every respect! Friday night had some friends over to watch the season premiere of Battlestar Galactica as well as the Webisodes (worst. name. ever.) , , and Audra all came over for snacks, pizza, and drinks. The webisodes were OK, but definitely not up to par. The premiere was good, although it could have been tightened up, as some of the plot points were a little weak. But it definitely set up for an AWESOME season, imho.
Saturday morning, Chuck arrived from NJ for a weekend visit. We parked his car over at Alewife and headed out to Kelly’s Roast Beef for lunch. We did all kinds of things this weekend, including heading out to the MFA, Summer Shack, flew (and not crashing) my helicopter, saw “The Departed” (was amazingly awesome), and a bunch of other stuff. He left yesterday afternoon and got home safely without any trouble. Totally awesome.
Corinna and I watched Four Brothers last night, which was a steaming pile of crap. I expected an enjoyably trashy flick, but it was just terrible. There were about 3 minutes where I actually enjoyed watching it.
