Recappin' Fool

Not a huge amount to recap from this weekend, but a Monday without a weekend recap just doesn't feel right somehow.

So you know about my Friday night out with Bodes already. I just re-read that post and it comes across as quite downbeat, but actually I had quite a good time. Really. Not without its frustrations, but still I would say that it wasn't a bad night.

It was a late one on Friday though, and I couldn't sleep when I got home, so I stayed up until about 4am. I'm not a person who can sleep in very well, so I was dragging my butt a bit on Saturday. I pottered around doing bits of shopping and housework, and didn't achieve very much. Oh, and sat looking for free porn reading The Internets for endless hours (as you do), and then decided to have a quiet one in.

Sunday I had to do a stocktake of the bookshop that I run at the Buddhist centre, so I headed on in about 9am to start preparing. My helper arrived at lunchtime and by around 5pm we had counted all the stock and I had entered the results onto the computer. I still have to go in and do some more work on the computer during the week, but the worst of it is over.

I was all set to have an early night last night, but during some channel surfing I discovered a Bollywood film that had just started on SBS, our free to air multi-cultural channel. I love Bollyood films! Of course I watched it, and of course as with most Bollywood films it was emotionally overwrought and especially long, and so didn't finish until after 12.30am. I don't even know what the film was called, but it was one of the biggest budget and most photographically lush Bollywood films I have seen. Beautifully shot, and quite surprisingly one of the few I have seen without a happy ending.

I was so tired when the alarm went off this morning that I considered ringing the office and calling in dead, but I'm out of sick leave and so have dragged my butt into the office.

Is this post cheering you up yet? Ack, me neither.

A busy week ahead. I have to catch up on a backlog of data entry at the Buddhist centre and tidy up the stocktake results, and we are running a big public talk next weekend so I have to prepare and pack for a portable bookshop at the event. I also have to clear out the spare room, which I started to use as a bit of a junk room, because Bodhi is moving in next weekend.

Bodhi is moving in next weekend! Unfortunately I'll be busy all day on Saturday volunteering at the event I mentioned before, but he'll be moving in over the course of the weekend. Woot!
