Saturday I trekked out to my old work neighborhood (how weird to be there! I hadn't been back since I quit that job) to have lunch with Rob at the infamous 'fried chicken and waffles' place. It was a beautiful day, the waffles and chicken were both DELICIOUS, and we had a lot of fun.
After, I met up with Cy and we went to go see Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Unlike many similar series, it was very enjoyable as a movie, having not much knowledge of the books. Apparently it suffers from serious Adaptation Decay
, but having never read the books (I plan on it now) I really enjoyed it. I was pretty much pre-deposed to like it though, because as a kid I was seriously obsessed with Greek Mythology. (I used to have this imaginary storyline about myself and my friends being the Greek Gods come down to earth in human forms -as they often did in the Myths- and having various adventures, often involving revealing their true forms, etc. I was Persephone, my bossy best friend was Hera, my grey eyed friend was Athena, the boy I had a crush on was Apollo, etc, etc. LOL)
Sunday was raining, so it was a pretty quiet day. I made soup, and we watched the Olympics.
