All over the place (a few happy posts, a few sad posts, a few odd posts)

This was an interesting weekend; lots of emotional ground covered. And I blogged several of those moments, and I wanted to link back to them. Happy moments, sad moments. (I'm better, Kat.)

On Friday, I amused myself on the job.

I also marked a tough anniversary, the death 10 years ago of one of my best friends...and then, later in the weekend, told you more about him, because he deserves to be known. I have at least one more entry I want to write, to cover still more...

And in the "odd" column, because oddness definitely can happen around me, I was surprised and confused by someone saying something ignorant. Oh, and later I admitted that sometimes I confuse even myself. And also odd was my reaction to the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie. (Though that two-word review doesn't beat my one-word review of the film Hannibal, because that one-word review was "Ugh"...)
