I had dinner last night with my friend Yves. I hadn’t planned on doing anything for my birthday really, but he had called me the night before and wanted to do something. I usually take things easy on Friday after my classes and work. It had helped that I had gone to bed at 9PM the night before. So I was somewhat rested after the last days, which were exhausting.
We had some sausages for dinner. His spouse was out working. I spent part evening catching up on my feed reading while he took care of his 2 year old son. The toddler’s birthday is in a few days. His cousin’s birthday is next week. They all had babies at the same time. This is common in social circles.
I ate too much and we watched The Dark Crystal by Jim Henson. It was pretty good. There were a lot of details in the shots. I was surprised. The movie must have cost a lot of money to produce (15 million US). The movie is from 1982. I just read that a sequel to this movie called The Power of the Dark Crystal will be released in 2009.
