01562: Weekends Keep Us All Afloat

Another great weekend comes to a close and the work week looms ahead. And I know that I'll certainly have my hands full given all the work that I have to get done over the next few weeks. It won't be fun, but that's the nature of work after all. It's what ultimately pays the bills and so we do what needs to be done.

Between Anne Curtis showing up at O Bar Ortigas (and eventally adding me on Facebook to get copies of the photos and yesterday's gaming session together with Tobie, Mahar, Erich and Rachel, it was certainly a weekend with a good balance of both gay and geeky fun. The best weekends typically manage this,  but that statement may seem inaccurate if only because it makes almost every weekend among the best. But hey, that's my life with Tobie after all. Hard to believe, but I've grown generally accustomed to our happiness. It's all about keeping the right mindset after all.

As is the way of things, I find myself already looking ahead past the work week and thinking about the weekend to come as we formulate our leisure plans. Beyond the inevitable gaming session, there are a few other options to be considered.

First, Saturday happens to be this year's Summer Komikon. It's not like the big comic book conventions over in the US, but it remains to be a great opportunity to celebrate local comic book artists as they try to make a name for themselves. But Tobie's Saturday work always presents a tricky element to things. Then there's the new play Sa Wakas, which Mahar is involved in, that begins its run this Saturday as well. And on the other hand, there's also our standing ticket for the last show of Repertory Philippines' regular season - The Graduate, that opened last weekend and will run until April 28.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.
