On Friday we just sort of relaxed. We watched some a British movie called In the Loop, which was pretty good. It was basically a sort of comedy about a bunch of politicians in the lead up to the Iraq War. We watched the beginning of the movie on Thursday, and I wasn't really feeling it. I was a little tired, and the characters seemed a little ridiculous. On Friday night, though, once we were more than half an hour in, I started to realize that the whole movie was a biting satire of the political process which led up to the quagmire of the Iraq War. I started to enjoy the movie a lot more. Maybe I was just in a better mood and not quite as tired. I don't know.
Anyway, good flick. Funny performances. I'm looking forward to having Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor Who. I hope they can find some writers to put together some decent scripts for him.
We also watched an episode of Cowboy Bebop. Amy recently watched Princess Mononoke, so I guess she was still a little hungry for some more anime. I've seen most of the Cowboy Bebop episodes before, but it's been a long time, so I didn't remember them that well. Anyway, we enjoyed it.
On Saturday we went to the grocery store, ran some errands, and did some chores. It was a little bit hot and muggy out, but I went for a bike ride, anyway. The ride was a little tough, but I felt good afterwards.
Saturday night we went over to a birthday party for Matt over at Matt and Nicole's house.
We had a good time! They had lots of good food, the company was entertaining and pleasant, and it was nice to finally get a chance to see Matt and Nicole's house. We'd been hearing about it for some time.

Sunday night Amy made really delicious chicken tikka masala. Really excellent.
After I did the dishes I did a little bit of stuff for work, and we went to bed.
That was it. Pretty good weekend, but too short. Hope you guys had a good one!
