I’ve had a very busy weekend; apologies to various friends for not being as responsive as usual (Mandy, in particular). My parents have been over, installing a new counter top in my kitchen, replacing the faucet, and doing a few other touch-ups around the house.

Since I moved in, I’ve had a bunch of renovations to be done. Now most of them are done (at least, it feels like most of them are done; hard to tell sometimes as the list grows and shrinks). I’ve only three major things left on the list: Tiling the backsplash in the kitchen, tiling the kitchen and dining room floors, and putting a vanity in the upstairs bathroom. There are a few other things to do, but those are the primary tasks.

I hope to have them all done in time for my Halloween Party this year. If you’re reading this, you’re probably invited; you’ll get an e-mail at some point. I have a lot of seasonal food planned, plus showings of old monster movies like the original Dracula and Frankenstein. And I’m inviting practically everyone I know, so it should be interesting.

On a completely different note, I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest tonight. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Like Snakes on a Plane, it’s a perfect summer blockbuster film: fun, visually interesting, and a great ride. About as deep as the glass on a painting, but then nobody watches a pirate movie for depth.

So it’s been a fun weekend, though a tiring one. Can’t complain about that.
