post of the month

Wow, I've been pretty bad about posting recently. Looks like it's been almost a month. Let's see, what's been going on recently?

Well, I've been seeing an abnormally high number of movies: The DaVinci Code (ugh), MI3 (eh) and X3 (ugh again). I also saw Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth, which a (Republican) friend calls the "liberal propaganda movie". It was good for a documentary, but I don't particularly enjoy paying $10 to hear a lecture. Maybe I should go back to not watching movies.

The Memorial Day holiday was pretty busy; I had houseguests for a couple of days, and then there was a wedding in Marin and another in Monterey (I chose Marin). I went with my family to Farallon to celebrate my brother's birthday (belatedly) and the food was good, but I'm not a fan of noisy-trendy restaurants.

There were several other birthday parties over the past few weeks, which meant many dinners, as well as a mini-golf outing. I also managed to finish watching the last few episodes of Lost, which means I no longer have to avoid entertainment magazines.

Just yesterday I got back from a wedding in Seattle (first time I've been there since I was about 10). Generally I am not a huge fan of weddings (it's nice to see people, but there seems to be a lot of unnecessary pomp and ceremony), but this one was actually really fun. There was maybe 100 people at the reception; at least 25 were people that I had known in school, most of whom I hadn't seen for about five years. We hung out at Jillian's, caught up at the wedding itself, and spent the day after driving around Seattle, hitting various touristy spots.

Next up, six of us are headed to Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo for the 4th of July. It'll be my first tropical vacation since high school, when my parents took us on a (surprisingly boring) cruise in the Bahamas. I should really write a post about cruises at some point, but suffice to say they don't agree with me. Anyway, I look forward to several days of snorkeling and sand castles!
