The Weekend

It's been a rough weekend. I've broken the second toe on my right foot stepping down from a kick. Don't ask me how, I don't know. All I know is that my toe is now swollen and a bit purple-ish. It makes walking difficult, and I do a lot of walking (or at least did). Ugh.

The weekend itself was terribly busy. I enjoy being busy, but I think this was a bit much. I need a couple of days to rest from the weekend. Isn't that sad? Saturday was my usual 2pm Kung Fu lesson. The class has grown quite a bit and I've found myself teaching all sorts of people of all ages. It's great, actually. The students are fun and they try, which is nice to see. That's where I broke my toe, incidentally. Then immediately afterwards, I raced down to visit my good friend Dave. We sat and talked for a couple of hours and then it was off to dinner with the Ottawa Dining Group which I belong to. It's simply a collective of people who love food and once every month they gather at a particular restaurant around Ottawa to sample their wares. It's fun, though sometimes expensive!

Sunday I had lunch and a movie with my friend Greg. The movie was Law Abiding Citizen. It was gory, and interesting, if somewhat formulaic. It also had Gerard Butler, so naturally I enjoyed it! That evening I met up with Papa and we went out to dinner and a movie. The movie was Zombieland. Again, really formulaic and we all know what is going to happen, really, but the ride is worth it! I was very funny.

It think that covers any news I have at all. Still no word from Tor.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Bye for now.

Sorry about your toe. On Oct. 1 I broke my nose in a bad fall (glasses too), so I can relate to the purple colour. Toes and noses can't really be put in casts, so healing is tricky - probably more so for toes. Take care and tread lightly.

Thanks Catherine! I trust you are well?

Ohh... I've had a broken toe before. Painful and annoying, and without a cast and crutches, the general public does not understand you are injured, and please give space. It sucks. Speedy recovery. At least you have the rainbow of colours it will go through for entertainment...

I'm glad to hear that Law Abiding Citizen is good, as I was planning to see that soon. Mind you, Gerard Butler made even Gamer worthwhile seeing.... mmmmm....

I still haven't seen Gamer... and probably will when it comes out on DVD. It looked interesting.
