Somebody's Got a Case of the Mondays...

...but it's not me (note: it turns out you really can have a case of the Mondays!). Anyway, I had a very nice weekend. On Friday, I went to my cousin Clare's wedding, which of course was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, Clare injured her knee at the wedding reception (it turns out she tore her ACL!!), but on the upside, she was able to get it checked out and get a brace and crutches before they leave for their honeymoon on Tuesday.

On Saturday, my parents threw a post-wedding luncheon at the King George Inn, and everyone seemed to be starving. Once they brought out bread baskets, we all digged in as if we were a pack of wolves that caught an intruding coyote in our territory (and believe me, I watched that exact event on National Geographic HD last night...there were some definite similarities).

That night, I had another fantastic meal with my girlfriend Hilary, in celebration of our two-year anniversary, at The Farmhouse. She got me an awesome to the Great International Beer Festival in Providence, RI this weekend (note that it says on the home page..."unlimited sampling"...easily the best 2-word phrase in reference to beer). I look forward to writing about that experience upon returning.

In closing, I would like to relieve everyone by letting you all know that I will not be taking part in the writer's strike.

well, don't write about that beer festival TOO soon after it's over... that would make for an interesting blog entry!!

Good to hear that you are boycotting the strike.

I have a case of the Mondays and it's Wednesday night. Hey, Kevin, maybe if we wear more flair . . .

Now that I know you're a fan, I know to whom I can give my copies of National Geographic magazine to.

Have fun at The Festival. Remember to be true to Guinness, Irish.
