I expected this weekend to be pretty lousy because it’s just one of those times when I’m new to a city and don’t have many friends and it’s a holiday weekend and I can’t get anyone to invite me to their soiree. I try to make plans for myself so I’m busy and don’t have too much time to be bored and think about the fact that I’m alone. BUT – it turned out to be a fantastic weekend which was completely unplanned. Those are the best kind of weekends.
I saw “My Girl Friday” for the first time for FREE Saturday night at this great movie theater in Denver. LOVE THAT MOVIE! Wow. Incredible. I need to see it several times because I know I missed a bunch of dialogue. It’s non-stop from the first frame. After the movie, I joined a wedding reception after party which included some old friends I haven’t seen in a long time. Made one new friend. Joined wedding reception friends today for a Colorado Rockies baseball game. Can’t get any more Americana than a hot dog, Cracker Jacks and baseball on July 4th. Got to try out my new wide angle lens at the stadium. Then was invited to a BBQ after the game so I was no longer missing out on that experience either. Decided to have a burger at the BBQ instead of a hot dog to shake things up. Made a connection with someone for job-related stuff. Tomorrow, I’m now going to Boulder with two friends. Yay! Good stuff!
