…what a weekend…

So, yeah…we were both pretty busy this weekend…again… This time, I played poker on Friday night at Jeremy’s, which was cool, as usual… Then Saturday, Stu and Joel came to St. Louis for some frolf action…there are pictures posted, but I’m sure most of you don’t care…but you should, ’cause frisbee golf rocks tremendously. We played at Watson Trails Park and Jefferson Barracks, neither of which I’d ever played at. Later that night, Stu and I went to a concert at Pop’s featuring Strapping Young Lad and Fear Factory. Who are these bands? They’re death metal bands. Yes, I went to my first death metal concert. In East St. Louis. Next door to the Penthouse club. Needless to say, it was an interesting night…

Arguably the most pertinent part of the weekend, however, came on Sunday… Brooke and I were wanting to get a pet, so we finally did. While I wanted to get a dog, it wasn’t really feasible for our current situation (i.e. I don’t have time to take one out for walks, teach it not to do its thing on my computers, etc…), so we got a cat. We went to the Humane Society on Sunday afternoon and picked out this little fella:

Sam the Cat

He’s 6 mo old and was a stray before being picked up and taken to the Humane Society. He was very well-tempered at the shelter and seems to be pretty friendly, thus far. They named him “Constantine,” but we decided that a 3 syllable name is a bit long for a cat, so we decided to call him “Sam”…seems like a name befitting a kitty cat… There are a few more pictures of him up in the Photos section now, too…

Now, time to get back to reading for this week… I don’t have to start my next rotation until November 14th, so I’ve still got afternoons off for the next 2 weeks…w00t!

  1. 1) It’s so not fair that you have your afternoons off for two weeks while I’m working my ASS OFF for the rest of the semester….I hate you….

    2) I think it’s funny that you have a cat. You don’t like cats….remember when you used to kick them all the time at the farm? Does it smell yet?

  2. We gave Sam a bath today. He took it surprisingly well…of course, we do have doors on our bathtub, so he didn’t have much of a choice… And sadly, he’s a bit large to be kicked for any extended distance…that, and I don’t want to piss him off such that he starts trashing the place… 😛

  3. Sam looks pretty cool. I never really liked cats much as a kid either but my old roomate had two and they ruled. I wouldn’t mind getting another cat someday. Good luck with it.

  4. I can’t BELIEVE you didn’t take one of our much adored cats. Remember, we have all kinds, all colors!

  5. We wanted an a). pre-neutered cat with b). all its vaccinations…that, and c). this cat doesn’t run away when we go near it… 😛 But thanks for the offer!

  6. I love my grand-kitty! Especially watching him drag his bag of treats around the kitchen, shaking them on the floor so he can chow down! Cheap entertainment.
