Friday Ramblings

Well, I somehow survived Vegas Trip 2010 last weekend! It was a blast, I couldn't have asked for a better or more fun group of friends to go with. I even made a new friend, and oddly enough my fortune cookie at the Rio Carnival World Buffet ringed true: Watch for a stranger to soon become a friend. :)

I'm not quite done with the final cost breakdown, as I'm still waiting to hear from one of the people about the total cost of hotel room plus gas. I think my share will be approximately $80. I lost $30 gambling, which is the most I've EVER gambled in Vegas! I think I'll be at around $375-$400 for the 3-day weekend, which isn't bad at all! Definitely put my Travel Fund to good use.

I've had a very busy week. Recovering from the trip and Daylight Savings Time, my golf class, kickboxing, yoga, and hanging out with some friends. Tonight I finally have time to relax, do laundry and clean the apartment. A good night in! I'm also hoping to get a lot of reading done. I'm horrible when it comes to reading; I usually have a few books going at once and right now is no exception. Time to finish Unaccustomed Earth, then read The Alchemist for next week's book club and hopefully get back into Shantaram. :)

Tomorrow I'll be volunteering in the afternoon and in the evening I'm off to see the Swedish movie version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I'm very excited! I love independent films and this one actually looks like a fantastic book-to-film one. (Or so the reviews say...) On Sunday I'm supposed to go to the driving range with some of the girls and I'll also probably run some errands.

What are your weekend plans?

I'm glad you had a good time in Vegas. Yay for making new friends! This weekend I'm seeing family and working overtime, pretty boring.

It's so weird, but I think that we're in the same book club! Your book club itinerary is pretty much identical to mine =)

@SN - Seeing friends/family isn't a boring weekend! Enjoy :)

@Tiffany - That's funny! What other books has your book club read? :)

My book club has quite a few meetings next month, but the next one I'm attending is for Three Cups of Tea (hopefully I can make it).
