Weekend Update

Friday attended the Serial Diners for dinner, and then went off with my brother to see Golden Mask at Kung-Fu Friday at the Royal. It was an old-style kung-fu picture, with gaping plot holes, improbable thrown weapons, and a villain(s) in a really awful mask that looked like it was made out of paper-mache and painted gold. It even had a cheesy moustache and eyelashes painted on it! It was a lot of fun of course.

Colin Geddes had five prizes to give away this time, all of which included passes to see Ong-Bak, the Thai Warrior. As usual, I didn't win anything, and so so busy cursing my luck that I didn't notice that one of the prizes was won by my friend Paul, who was there as well. But all's well that end's well because I'm going with him to see the movie Wednesday.

Saturday I played a lot of Hero's of Might and Magic IV in the morning and afternoon, and went out to join my friend Andy (who's reviews of time-travel films you should check out) on a Danforth St. Pub Crawl in the evening. This is a regular event with a bunch of Andy's friends, and it was a lot of fun, although food service at The Court Jester (near Pape) was so slow we had to skip the nearby Brass Taps. They do a winter crawl, a summer one, and one every Friday the 13th.

Sunday I was feeling a little unwell (I had a grand total of a single Mike's and a screwdriver thank you very much, the screwdriver just because that bar didn't have any peach schnapps for a fuzzy navel) so I got caught up on the TV I had taped the previous few days, played some more HoMaM IV, and stopped of at my friend Jim's to return a bunch of Prince Valiant comic collections I had previously borrowed from him, and borrow the next batch of volumes. Prince Valiant is such great storytelling and Hal Foster, the strip's creator, was from Nova Scotia to boot!
