Friday Fun! (On Tuesday!)

I realized that I missed Friday Fun last week, and given that my current read is pretty long and a lack of movie watching, I haven’t posted since Thursday. My bad!

I took last Friday off of work and had Monday off for President’s Day.  Yay being a non-essential employee of a hospital!  I spent Friday running errands, shopping, and cooking.  I discovered a Stop n Shop that is closer to my apartment than the Shaws I had been frequenting, and let me tell you, their prices are insanely low!  Plus they have more vegetarian options than Shaws does.  I’m a total convert.

Also this weekend, I paid my first visit to the Apple Store’s Genius Bar.  It wasn’t for me; it was for someone else’s iPhone.  I haven’t dared to bring in my baby, erm, MacBook, even though it does this freaky thing where it restarts if I close it.  It took observing someone else using the Genius Bar for me to realize that they are totally awesome!  They’re like librarians’ nerdy twins, and you guys should totally make appointments to use them.  It was some of the best customer service I’ve ever seen.  Just be sure to make your appointment online before you go, or you’ll wind up waiting a while.

Hope you guys enjoy your evenings.  Don’t forget there’s a new episode of Lost tonight and a new Wolf Bite Wednesday tomorrow!

    I have also been watching Lost, although being in the UK I’m probably behind you in episodes. I can’t decide if I’m enjoying it or not, I think I’m at the stage I just want to know the end lol.
    Apple is a foreign language to me, I’m a PC as the advert says. My Stepdad bought me a ipod shuffle for a christmas a couple of years back had absolutely no idea how to use it!! I am however converted to iTunes.

      According to Lostpedia, Meghan is right that the UK episodes are just a couple of days behind us.

      I’m a Mac person all the way, though I was unable to convince my library and therefore have to use a pc at work.

    I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well. =/ I hope your boss understands about IBS. I doubt she thinks it’s an excuse, it’s a recognized condition and there’s not much you can do about it as far as I know.

    As you know, I love LOST. Our episodes in the UK are on Friday (so we’re only a few days behind, jessicabookworm!) and I have been looking forward to them, although I admit I preferred the DVDs and being able to watch an entire season in a week. Oh well. We have 5 seasons, so when this one comes out we plan to buy it and then have a huge LOST marathon to better see how all the pieces fit together.

      Thanks, Meghan. There’s a few things you can do to improve, but nothing medically. The advice is always diet change, yoga, meditation, stress relievers, etc…, but you never can fully get rid of “flare-ups” of the syndrome.

      Lost marathons are one of the best things ever! Though I do also enjoy the experience of being forced to wait a week to find out what happens next, I’m looking forward to a full series marathon once it’s all over. We should make it some sort of an event like the readathons! 😉
