I had simple plans for this weekend. See RO tomorrow, leave Sunday open for the Cat Lady, and then play games with the folk from Yonkers on Monday. As of now, Saturday and Sunday look like I'll have to fill them in with something other than planned.

Lili called around 1 pm, and suggested that we get together for lunch. I told her that I could make it at 3 pm, and I was only 5 minutes late. We caught up on what's been going on in our lives, and she kept trying to have me eat the food she could no longer eat. (I can't blame her for not wanting to let half of a Lobster Roll go to waste.) If I had wanted lobster, I'd have ordered it, as I will likely buy a couple of these critters (at $5.99/lb.) tomorrow to cook at home.
After seeing Lili, I took a long drive. While in the car, I made arrangements to see three people: BXM (with a possible Wednesday night dinner), RO (with a possible midweek meeting), and HWA (for a Tuesday afternoon chat). BXM has a new boyfriend, and has less time in her life for people like me. (This is natural.) So, I'll know that to see her, it will be easier to schedule something in the middle of the week when her boyfriend is at his house. RO seems to have unpredictable weekends, so I'm thinking of seeing her on a Thursday - just to be able to stay in touch. Next week, we have game night on Labor Day, I figure that I can get my dose of gaming in on Monday, and use Thursday to see RO. If she's not available, I can still go to Thursday's game night, or go to one of the 20@20 deals Off Broadway. And then, there is HWA. I haven't seen her since the last co-op board meeting, and it's nice to be able to catch up with her again.
When I got home, I tried to rest a little before going out again. I couldn't rest the way I wanted to do. After I laid down in my bed, I got a call from GFJ and we chatted for a couple of hours. There went my chance of going out to see a late night movie. So I made an omelette, completed this entry, and figured that I will be spending at least one more day as Marian before changing back to Mario.,
