Memorial Day Weekend Re-cap

I guess I was in a mood to watch movies this weekend. I ended up seeing Da Vinci Code, X-men III, and rented Lord of War. Da Vinci Code was great. I have not read the book and found the movie very good. I was surprised by a few things and liked how the movie took me along for the ride of the mystery, without giving it all away. X-men was a bit of a disappointment. I am a big fan of the cartoon and loved the first two movies. The third deviated from the cartoon (I am unsure about the comic books) and the turn of events were disappointing, although surprising. Perhaps my expectations were a bit high for this film. Finally, Lord of War was great. Based on actual events, Nicholas Cage plays an illegal arms dealer. It was good stuff.

The rest of the weekend...I got in a bike ride, mowed the lawn, BBQ'd with some friends, napped, read a book and finished Quiz 2 of my Excel exercises for grad school.

I am paying my last rent in DC this week. The end feels near and I am anxious, just as many of my classmates seem to be. When I see people, I make sure to give them a healthy good-bye, since I know that I will not see them for a little while. Fortunately, I am a traveler by nature, so I usually see people again.

This morning I got up early and went for nice run. It has been getting pretty warm, so it felt great outside around 6:30-7:00. Every time I go running now, I think of the new Nike + Ipod that is coming out soon. I can't wait! I will be getting the device and trying to insert it into my New Balance shoes. What a wonderful device.
