First, my friend Shona picked me up from work on Friday. We went to a pub for a drink, and then we went to a showing of the new Harry Potter movie. I always like the books better than the movies, but the first part of the Deathly Hallows was brilliant. We went to a theater that was so old that it only had one cinema. I felt like I was going to see an opera. A man played the organ on the stage before the show started, and then he lowered into the ground with his organ when he finished. It was entertaining, actually. I'm not used to seeing that before the movies! It's hard to tell that somebody is playing an organ since I took the photo with my phone.
Luckily, I found her mobile number in an old email. She answered her phone and told me that she was doing another open house and that I was going to have to drive across town to get the keys from her. I couldn't drive, though, because Al, who wasn't answering his phone, took the car to cricket. Fortunately, Al's dad was more than willing to drive me over there. I got the keys from her, and I got into the apartment. Problem solved!
I thought that the plan went smoothly as we left in our cab, picked up Nick and Anna and arrived at the show grounds. As we started walking, I looked down to see that I was still wearing my flip flops. My shoes were still sitting under our table at Subway. As I came upon this realization, Al's parents were getting out of their cab behind us. We said a quick hello, jumped in their cab and drove back to Subway. $30 later, Al and I arrived back with my shoes and an appetite to party.
Please excuse the bad photos, by the way. My camera died, so I had to use my phone.
Al got his phone when he signed up for a new plan. He didn't pay anything for it, but he'd now have to pay $600 if he wanted a new one. Yikes!
After spending a lot of time on the phone this morning with the cab and phone companies and visiting some stores, we got in the car and drove 30 minutes to a Virgin Mobile store for a blank sim card. When we got there, we found out that they didn't have blank sim cards. We had to drive another 30 minutes to another mall. Luckily, they had some there. He's using my old iPhone now, and he can still keep his old phone number. He'll probably wait until the other phone drops in price, and then he'll buy one. It was all so frustrating, though!
This weekend was stressful. Hopefully this week at work won't be too busy, but I'm sure that it will be. Next weekend is far away, but I can assure you that we're going to take it easy.
I hope they like my banana cake at work!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends.
