Another Fabulous Weekend

We had another crazy busy weekend, but it was worth every minute of it. We went upstate for our friends Johnny and Alisen's wedding at Mohonk Mountain House in the Catskills. It was a lovely wedding, and the venue was INCREDIBLE. The road up to the resort was certainly fairly white-knuckle inducing! We drove up to the area Friday night with Saul, Carrie and Yvie, as Saul's parents had generously allowed us to stay with them Friday night. The rooms at Mohonk were $570/night!!!! We had a lot of fun, Johnny and Alisen are firmly married, but we decided to leave in time to get down the mountain while there was still light.

Because neither of us are in any shape to dance, we didn't stay for the full reception after the wedding. :( But to make up for it, back on Long Island, we had friends waiting to go out to dinner! We met up with Tina and Neal, who were here for I-Con, and a bunch of their friends. Dinner itself was a total bust (food barely so-so and service horrible), but the conversation, and new friends Keith and Wrenn more than made up for it!

Sunday had been scheduled for a bunch of housework, but Tina, Neal, Keith and Wrenn managed to convince us to go out for linner with them before they left. I finally ate at the diner that other friends have been looking at holding DinerCon at, and now I totally understand why! It would be a perfect venue! Much hilarity ensued, Brian still can't get over the fact that something he said was live-tweeted, photos were taken* and everyone managed to still get on the road at a decently early hour.

Today is Brian's un-birthday, and he's celebrating it by having a job interview this afternoon. He's not positive he wants the job, but it's still an interview, and worth doing even if he doesn't want it. The experience never hurts!

*And none by me. I had none of my usual cameras with me as it turned out, no camera, no cell-phone, no iPod! Strange!
