Chris Merritt rocks…

This weekend has easily been the best weekend of my life.  Friday was date night.  Started off looking for sustenance.  Went to Jason’s Deli–always a winner.  Then Sav and I went out to the Riverwoods to see 9.  We were a bit early, so we stopped at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.  The Apple Pie Apple is probably my favorite thing to eat.  (Though the southwest burrito from Jason’s was very good too–recommended.)  So after buying apples and some new clothes, we headed to the movie.  We liked it.  Very visually appealing, very good story telling.

We also saw the previews to the new Christmas Carol film coming out from Disney.  Looks amazing (credit I think goes to the company Disney has working with them).  Also, Surrogates looks pretty cool.  We’ve added these two to the Perpetual Movie List.

So after snogging Sav in the parking lot at the Riverwoods, we came back and hung out.  Awesome Friday.

Saturday–started with french toast breakfast.  I love my new griddle!  One of the best $20 ever spent.  Nicely fed, we went shopping.  Sav is a great sister (not mine–that would make the aforementioned snogging something that’s only permissible in Bancroft).  She bought groceries for her brother–best sister ever.

The day continued with a quest to fix Sav’s internet connection so that her apartment could be connected to the world.  She’s got Comcast, and she was using an old Linksys cable modem/router with built-in wireless.  The modem kept losing its connection, and a tech suggested that we get a new modem, preferably a dedicated modem and a dedicated router.  Well, being who I am, I have multiple routers.  So I bought a new Linksys dedicated modem.  Using a Linksys router with DD-WRT I already had, I setup a new modem and router configuration that works.  Night and day difference, so if you have similar problems, I recommend this solution.  (That was boring, but I thought it would be handy if you have similar problems.)

This is getting long, but it was a great weekend.  After that small period of nerdiness on my part, Sav and I headed to Cafe Rio to meet my parents.  It’s pretty great to have your three favorite people all in one room.  Even better when that room is the Cafe Rio dining room.  My parents left me with an electic scooter.

Then the game.  The only fun part of that was being with Sav.  That’s all.

Then we took a nice walk to Velour to see CHRIS MERRITT.  He was great.  Probably my favorite live performance I’ve seen.  I highly recommend checking him out.  It was the perfect rounding out of a weekend.  And the perfect ending to a great Saturday.

Sunday was pretty chill.  Just church and then hanging out with Sav all night.  And that, my friends, is how you have the perfect weekend.
