The weekend came and went.

From my point of view this was one of the best weekends I had in ages. I didn’t do anything special but I manage to do about everything I wanted and planned on doing.

Saturday was the laziest day I had in months. I woke up and cleaned my room, fed Marlanu’ (my cat) and the tiny turtle I was supposed to take care of, took a bath then left. And that was about all the physical effort I made all day.

We spent the weekend at some friends, since Johnny had to fix some computers.

I knew I would get bored so I was very much inspired to bring along my Watchmen comic book. I had this book since the beginning of the year and I never had the chance to read it. I saw the movie last December and I was really interested in reading the comic book.

We’ll it was a good thing that Johnny was really busy because it took me all Saturday to finish the book (starting from lunch till 10PM). Yup,  I spent the entire Saturday reading a comic book. I know people might find this crazy but I just couldn’t let it down. It was better than the movie, things were a little bit clearer and I just didn’t want to let it go until the very end.

I don’t regret it. From my point of view I couldn’t have spent my time any better.

Another thing that I don’t regret was having my camera with me. These friends of Johnny had this great view and they were oblivious to it.

It was a bit of a shock but then again not everybody thinks like me, not everybody enjoys the same things that I do (aka the small things in life). I’ve uploaded all the pictures with their original resolution on our Gallery.

We spent the night over and I was really happy with that. The next day I woke up first (a habit I picked from work) and I got to enjoy the lovely view, the quietness of the neighborhood, the fresh coffee, heck even the cigarette had a different taste.

I had two full hours to myself while everyone was sleeping and I was just sitting in the kitchen thinking and it was then when I realized two things:

  1. I really wanted some paper and a pen to write down all my thoughts at that time.
  2. I was thinking that it would be nice if by writing on my blog I could learn to express myself in a better way and maybe, in a distant future, I could become a writer. It might sound silly, but I have so many things I would like to write down but I find it difficult. I don’t know if writing is a talent or something you learn but still it would be nice to be able to write down in a coherent way all my thoughts.
And it all came to an end when the neighbours woke up and they started making noises, loud noises. It was like I was under a spell that was broken as soon as other people awoke. Sad, but I would’ve really liked some more quiet time.
Later that day, we had pizza, tried to visit the Antipa Museum but gave up when we saw the line for the tickets, went for a short walk and the rest of the day was spent watching Dr. House (the first series).
A weekend well spent!
