I got myself together enough to head out to hollyk's sister's memorial service on time. This was, of course, the one time timenchanter was running late and made me wait for him, as opposed to all those times I've done that service for him. However, one white-knuckled ride later, I was in my car and heading back down to the service. I was being cut off from behind by this one particularly irritating car, let it pass me, and discovered as it zoomed on that it was Valerie and James. James then called me to ask for directions. When we were done with that, and I was no longer distracted, I passed them, and went on my merry way to the park ("Try to keep up with us", Hah!).
The service was very nice, in fact a bit short. Hopefully it wasn't too obvious that a group of us non-christians weren't chanting along with the rest of them...
Holly's family mostly seemed to be very nice people. I'll just allow the one catty remark: The last time I saw her best friend's husband's mullet, I was watching Joe Dirt.
Afterward, cekyr0, jeffercine, electrichobbit and I went off to the President Restaurant for lunch: A very nice Chinese Buffet/Mongolian BBQ place near my house that I really should go to more often. Good company and good fun, as always.
Then I took Mark back home by way of Weird Stuff Warehouse. Used electronics geek heaven. I hadn't been there for years, and was looking for some used equipment. They didn't have what I was looking for, but man, do they have a lot of junk. We had a blast walking through the rows.
Then up to my parents' for dinner. They really want to work on trying to get the police report changed on my telephone pole encounter, and looking at it, I see why. So I need to do some map work for that. Joy.
My dad also ripped into me about my weight, which is admittedly much higher than I'd like. Of course, that was before they fed me the extra piece of salmon and the strawberries with whipped cream...
A nice visit, though, somewhat marred by my inability to stay awake. So I headed back home, and I'm about to crash - hopefully for a decent length of time this time.
