I started my new job on Monday. So far its good, but I’m of course still just settling in. Mainly its a big relief just to have something. I’m looking foward to Friday’s paycheck from the two day temp assignment last week.
On Saturday, one of my friends invited me along to a wedding of one of her high school friends. The wedding was pretty normal (well except for parts being in Korean) until the reception. When the wedding party arrived, each couple was introduced along with music, which they danced their way into the hall to. When no one was left except for the bride and groom, the video on the right is what happened. It definitely made for a more interesting wedding reception. Other highlights included the infomercial made by the groom selling “Jane’s Top Musical Hits,” including him (and friends) lip syncing along to songs from High School Musical, Dream Girls, Hairspray and maybe one or two others, I can’t remember. The wedding was great fun, but I was sure exhausted by the time I got home a little after midnight.
Sunday I ventured up to Thousand Oaks to hang out with my friend who lives up there. I took the Red and Orange lines to Woodland Hills to meet him part way. With the trips on Saturday and Sunday, I’ve now ridden all but a small section of the Green and Gold lines in the Metro “Rail” system (the Orange line is a dedicated bus line). My friend bbq’d some ribs and we watched Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. The movie was funny, though not as funny as the first Harold & Kumar movie. It was a pretty laid back afternoon.
