Well,

this weekend Ardith and I locked ourselves into a dark dungeon to undergo self-experimentation on reactions to bright flashing lights and booming noises. If you feel like it, you can translate that into this: Ardith introduced me to the Firefly series (notice the user rating on the linked site? how could They cancel it?) and somehow we ended up watching the whole thing, plus the movie.

Of course, that's not all we did. Friday evening we had a yummy supper (actually, every meal was yummy!) and went to see A Prairie Home Companion. By the way, just to warn you, Garrison Keillor doesn't look at all like he should, from which we get the moral "Never try to imagine a radio person's appearance from his voice." Saturday we slept in (a little) and protected ourselves from heatstroke by relaxing in a darkened basement with said Firefly series, plus we got plenty of exercise by running up and down stairs for various things like food and drink. Sunday we went to church and finished the series and watched a movie. And of course every day involved Internet surfing and discussing the latest world news, especially Middle East developments.

Hopefully you got to read this before bed. It'll put you right to sleep.

(By the way, thanks for the comment guesses for the previous post - they were very funny!)

I've seen a few of the Firefly episodes and the movie. They were kind of fun.

When I think of being up at Rochester for 3 months and never getting to go see "A Prairie Home Companion" show in person, I could just about cry....

Except you're too tough for that, Ma Hoyt!

You could get the movie sometime, since it's about putting on a (last) show. More nostalgic than funny but there are several good laughs.

Oh, and Ardith, look, maybe we could get up a petition to bring back Firefly with all this support.
