This Weekend...

This weekend was a particularly busy one. I've mentioned a couple of times that I volunteer for Destination Imagination, and this weekend was a big competition. On Friday after work I drove up to the school where it was being held to set up and get organized, and then headed to my parents' house for a late dinner and spent the night there. Then I woke up at a rather unpleasant hour for a Saturday and was there all day, watching kids perform, running around, and hanging out with my friends from the program. I work with the Improv program, which had some pretty hysterical moments this year. Part of my job is handing back and explaining scores to the kids, and I didn't make any of the kids cry this year which is always a good thing :)

After volunteering I headed back to the city to get ready for my birthday party at Emporium Arcade, a bar that's full of old arcade games and pinball machines. I spent a considerable amount of time trying to find and play the weirdest games in the place (including one where I was tubing down a river, avoiding pointy things and picking up beers), as well as trying to figure out who in the bar actually was a hipster, and who was wearing a costume.

Sunday was mostly spent laying around, napping, and getting some work done. All in all, a pretty successful weekend. I hope you had a good one!
