I know it’s a bit late. In fact the weekend’s over already. Haha.
Stanman called me on Friday and asked if I wanted to go to TGI Fridays with the UW gang, and I said sure. The food and the service were both good. We all got one of the $12.99 3-course dinner deals. Saran asked if TGI Fridays stood for Thank God It’s Friday. Others seem to think it meant Thank Goodness It’s Friday. I mean in the PC (politically correct) world, TGI Friday’s might’ve changed their acronym to mean “goodness”, but I always thought the ‘g’ in TGIF was God. Acronym Finder shows these as the top 3 acronyms for TGIF:
- Thank God It’s Friday
- TGI Friday’s (US restaurant chain)
- Thank Goodness It’s Friday
I’m pretty sure it started out as God, but to be politically correct, they may have changed it to Goodness. Sort of like how Kentucky Fried Chicken -> KFC -> Kitchen Fresh Chicken.
Anyway we came back to my place to play some Settlers of Catan. Once again Perry wins. I didn’t really have much of a chance. My settlements were basing on the #6 which did not come up once for the 1st 6 or 7 circles (where everyone rolled once). I actually had it made if luck was on my side. I had 2 tree accesses, a 6 and a 9 and then a 2:1 tree deal. But unfortunately, luck wasn’t on my side as I stated. So near the end game, I basically went and did sabotage, I built through areas so Perry couldn’t built the longest road. Saran came and took the largest army from him. He was back down to 5 points, but somehow ended up coming back to win the game. It helped him a lot that he got more special developer cards (non-soldiers) than soldier cards. Guess luck was totally on his side.
On Saturday, I went in to work. Our team is a bit behind and our lead thought it would be great if we could put in some time this weekend. I did get a lot done for some reason. Maybe cause there’s no one around to bother me and no one around for me to bother. Haha. I did get a free lunch out of it.
As for Sunday, just met up with CDMCC and Elizabeth, had dinner, and then a movie.
I actually finished vacuuming what I had unfinished the previous weekend. I did some house cleaning and my apartment’s looking pretty good.
