Weekend Update

Another great weekend!

Friday night, Meghan and I left the Seamoo (think Shamu, the killer whale at Sea World, but add in Seamus) at home and went to a place called P.J. Whelihan's, a great pub/restaurant with my dad, step-mom, step-brother and his girlfriend, and some of our neighbors. I got some BBQ ribs and a couple of Guinesses, and we all had a great time.

Saturday, we took Seamus out to Philly to move Meghan out of Drexel University for the last time, as she graduates this Saturday morning (6/17/06). She had brought most of her stuff to my apartment already, but we had to grab a lot of her big stuff, including her futon. After we were done with that, we unloaded most of her stuff at my (now our) apartment, and drove my dad's truck, laden with larger items, up to her mom's house with the dog. We hung out there all day, made some burgers and pasta salad, drank some beers, and had a grand old time. Came home to watch Underworld with Kate Beckinsale, got about halfway through and we were both ready to pass out (of course, this was after a few margaritas!).

Sunday, we slept in with the puppy, then got up to go sign the lease for our new condo. We were supposed to head to Manyunk, a Philly suburb, to watch this huge bike race that they have there each year, but Meghan didn't feel up to it, so we decided to take the dog to a local park and make some burgers out there. Picked up some beer, packed up some burgers that were in the freezer, and headed out. We had a great time at Smithville Park and so did the little Seamoose (another name for him, combining his name and a moose, which, of course, he'll grow to equal in size). The little guy is not so little anymore. He gained more than 4 lbs over the course of a week. I'm starting to have trouble carrying him, even though he's only about 20 lbs. He can get pretty damn squirmy. After we got home, we threw on Deadwood, since we're still a few episodes behind. The new episodes started yesterday night, so I DVR'd it, and I have all of season 2 on the DVR. Once we're done watching all those, we can get to season 3.

Tomorrow is Meghan's last day in Philly. I can't wait. For the past year, we've been making trips back and forth, and she's only been around on weekends. It'll be great having her around for good.
