Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

The Social Entropy Weekender

seweekender.jpg

In Aukland, New Zealand, the clock strikes five PM. Tipsy office workers down the last of their Friday beers and meander to their buses and trains. Retail staff check and recheck the time, wondering if it's too soon to roll up the shutters and call it a day. Amatuer gourmets maraud the greengrocer's shelves in anticipation of the feasts to be conjured up. The weekend, for them as much as anyone else, is about preparation.

Whether it's the height of the beating summer or the midst of rain-slick winter, the weekend is at hand and that means - for the lucky majority - a bit of freedom. Freedom for adventure, for relaxation, for feats of absentminded creativity or hard work at a personal passion. Time to be a social darling or time to be decidedly, happily alone. Time that for whatever unknowable reason feels implicitly, supernaturally... better.

Tell us what you're doing! Share your grand plans or miserable failures, Saturday parties or Sunday blues. For some of us the weekend starts now; for the rest, you don't have long to wait.

I'm in the mood for gettin' ready.

    Last weekend was amazing so I wouldn't be surprised if this one was a bust.

    But I might go to Mana Bar tonight to drink some cocktails and play some video games and hit on some nerd girls

    Plus tomorrow I have two birthday parties. A four year old's and a 32 year olds.

    lunch with my brother tomorrow, followed by maybe finishing my second playthrough of mass effect 2 at his house (i play on his computer), hanging out with a friend tomorrow night, and then I'm hanging out with a dude I don't know too well despite having known him for like eight years on saturday. I'm slightly afraid he might have the wrong idea about in what capacity we are hanging out, so that remains to be seen.

    I'm recording guitar and vocal tracks Friday through Sunday, likely with minimal sleep. Likely get some bass done in there, too.

    New Blaze full length coming soon. Woohoo!

    Friday night I'm going to see Avenue Q. On a date :winky:

    Saturday I'm going up to Glendale to visit the Disney Imagineer Studios for their open house. They'll tour us around the buildings, talk about upcoming projects for the various parks, and then show us some stuff that I am not allowed to talk about but I probably will anyways because that is my idea of rebellion. It promises to be pretty exciting.

    Thankyou pipe.

    I don't have too much on this weekend.

    The weather is shitty so tomorrow I need to decide if I'm going out with friends to one of my favourite bars, or not getting rained on.

    My weekend started tonight, and it was going awesome initially. I was eatin' some golden grahams (no milk, just the way I like it) and watching Sliders on hulu. I got to the bottom of the bowl, episode ended, turned the lights on and there were 2 live maggots in it.

    Maybe tomorrow will be better.

    Celebrating my burfday with a garage sale on Friday then going to a Paul McCartney concert on Saturday. To say I've been looking forward to this weekend would be an understatement.
