It was a quiet, relaxing weekend, so here's a quiet, relaxing Weekend Wrap.
Friday, Mike and I went to this Japanese place right around the corner. I love sushi.
Saturday, I was going to wake up early and go for a hike. But, um, I woke up at 10. So no hike. Instead, Hudson and I went to a thrilling Dodgers-Giants game. They were tied in the bottom of the ninth with two outs. The Giants had just walked Jeff Kent to get to Jason Phillips, who I'm not a big fan of. After getting a generous call on a check swing -- but the umps don't win or lose games! -- Phillips singled in the winning run. This Giants fan in front of us went nuts, pointing middle fingers at the field and getting into it with anyone who'd make eye contact with him. Rivalry sporting events are always the best, even when both teams basically suck.
Sunday was a typically lazy one. After again failing to wake up early for my hike, we all went out to breakfast. The rest of the day was spent dozing, reading the LAT, and going to Ye Rustic Inn for dinner (by the way, the photos on that link make the Rustic look a lot hipper than it is -- think hair metal dive bar meets neighborhood dive bar). After a quick jaunt over to Santa Monica, where I bought "The Right Nation" and "The Oxford Essential Guide to U.S. Government," it was back home for a great night's sleep.
