I’ve had a wonderfully social last few days.
On Wednesday a bunch of us hung out with surrealestate
to celebrate her birthday. It was a delightful gathering in honour of a delightful person! plumtreeblossom
and I had a great time.plumtreeblossom
and I went back to her place afterwards, so I got to wake up next to my sweetie and have coffee with her. On my way in to work Thursday I got Grigori Yefimovich¹ inspected.
Thursday after work I met cathijosephine
, and drove with her to xmelancholia
’s, where we caught up for a while, cathijosephine
some excellent socks, and I got to play with big huge wonderful friendly dogs (a mastiff and a German shepherd). Yay for doggie time! And yay for seeing xmelancholia
; it had been too long.
had arranged to get group-rate tickets to see Handel’s Messiah
performed by the Handel and Haydn Society
at Symphony Hall
(very near where I work). My typical inability to get anywhere on time was in evidence, but in a somewhat unusual fashion: I somehow managed to get there an hour early
. Anyway, I crashed docorion
’s dinner nearby and at the correct
time, we were all back at Symphony and plumtreeblossom
and the rest of the group congregated successfully. The concert was delightful, although I felt a little odd at something so liturgical. I had never been inside Symphony Hall before, and I loved checking out the décor. I’d have loved to see what the original paint job looked like (there was very elaborate moulding and detail work, but it had all been repainted in a neutral colour). I think we all had a great time. Thanks, docorion
and I got together with dan4th
at their place and ordered in Thai food and had a lovely time. Along the way, I learned probably three or four little facts about hockey, which at least doubles what I know about the game.
This morning (Sunday morning, although I guess technically I mean “yesterday morning” at this point), plumtreeblossom
and I had a yummy and relaxed brunch at The Burren
, and then I came home and resumed work on my plumbing.
My life is good!
