"How do Olney girls drink?"

Ah, the weekend. How quickly you came and went, especially since I spent most Saturday and Sunday chained to my computer as I redesigned my website for future career development.

This weekend was one of thwarted plans. Having been offered free tickets to see the Yankees/Red Sox game on Friday, I had to turn them down as I had no one to go with. Yes, I'm not a sports fan, but it would have been fun . . . perhaps. Saturday I wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and explore Roosevelt Island with Holly, but I was shut down. We went out bar hopping Saturday night instead. On Sunday I had made tentative plans to have brunch with Holly only to call and find that she had forgotten and already had breakfast. Sigh. I went back to working on my website, even when I should have been doing a massive load of laundry. Thwarted again.

Book club is tonight! Thank Christ I am finally done reading the most tedious book ever.

AHHHHH! You didn't go see the Sox - Yanks game!? AAAAH!

If I had been in NYC this weekend like originally planned (work trip canceled for me to go to Houston instead), I would gone with you in a flash. But then again, we don't really know each other. I promise I'm not an axe murderer, though.

I assume this is the book responsible for the movie of the same name starring Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman? Although I admit to having previously owned it on VHS, I'm sad to say it wasn't such a fine film...

I can promise you, Heather, that I am not a axe murderer either. I was told that I missed a really important game. How often do you get the chance to go to see the Yankees and Red Sox for free?

And yes, Red, it is the same book that spawned the movie. I hear that the book is better, as they always are, but in this case that's little comfort. 530 pages of tedium.
