On Friday, we saw 28 Weeks Later, which was about as good as I expected it to be. It was scary in that “something’s going to jump out at me any second I just know it” sense, but was weak in character development and plot… unlike the first movie, which did it all, and so very well. But the sequel did leave an impression… I didn’t sleep much on Friday night!
On Saturday the S.O. and I got off our lazy arses and checked out the Orono Bog Boardwalk, which is exactly what it sounds like – a 1-mile-long boardwalk through a local bog. We mostly went for the exercise, but if you’re into hiking and nature walks and being a damn dirty hippy, this is a fun and educational way to spend the afternoon. I’d love to go back in the evening… photos are better when the sun isn’t high in the sky. But I did upload a few to flickr, nonetheless.
Saturday was also the day of my younger brother’s college graduation, so kudos to him! He graduated from the New England School of Communications with a B.S. in (you guessed it!) Communications. Now I can tease him about having a degree in bs, ’cause I’m mature like that! Hah!
Sunday, we visited a friend and had delicious turkey chili and watched Notes on a Scandal. Great movie, great food, great company – what more could you ask?
And now we’re back to Monday, and I’m spent. Someone at the office just brought around a box of mini ice cream sandwiches. Summer vacation has officially begun, which means campus is empty, just the way I like it. It’s spring, the sun is out, and life is good!
