Friday night we headed to a house party near Riverdale Park (and the awesomely named ‘Necropolis’) for a going-away party held in honour of a c0-worker of Danielle’s.  I finally got to meet a whole bunch of her colleagues, and it was fun putting faces to names that I know so well.  Granted, the faces I’d envisioned were, for the most part, WAAAY off of what these people actually look like.

Saturday was day for errands and cleaning and yet another trip to Canadian Tire, where I drooled over Dremel attachments for a while.  I didn’t buy any new tools.  I also upgraded my blogging software from WordPress 2.6 to 2.7.  The new backend is pretty slick, but you probably won’t notice any changes as readers.  In the evening, we headed back to Landon’s place for the second half of his Ukrainian Christmas party where we ate more perogies and borscht and laughed until our bellies were sore.

Sunday, I woke up with a painfully sore wrist, which was especially bad as I was playing guitar in church that morning.  I thought I may have slept on it wrong, but since I have a sore toe on the same side, I’m starting to wonder if I banged into our doorframe in the middle of the night while sleepwalking.

Last night, we finally got around to watching Atonement, and neither of us were all that impressed.  Still, I was glad to find that it wasn’t just a sappy romance story, but it was pretty slow-moving.  I’m hoping that 2009 will include at least a couple of movies that knock my socks off.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
