I'm not sure exactly why, but this weekend was so nerdy! Friday night wasn't too bad. We did laundry & had dinner at our local sushi restaurant. Back at home I did a spa night.
Saturday morning, I woke up late and made a breakfast of coffee, oatmeal and turkey bacon. And then we watched Dune in HD, which I had never seen and which is awesomely bad (Sting in a speedo! Superfluous inner-dialog narration!)
After the movie, Rob and I took the train out to Golden Gate park to visit the de Young Museum. All the new exhibits were fascinating. Shi Guorui's pinhole camera exhibit inspired me to buy my own kit, similar to this. From the museum, we walked back home along Haight Street. We stopped at the insanely cheap green grocer on Divisadero. Honeydew, 9 artichokes, red potatoes, carrots, limes, late harvest grapes, mint, garlic and nectarines for under $10!
Back at home, I worked on my camera and made turkey soup. Our nerd movie marathon continued with War Games, which I had also not seen before.
We had another big healthy breakfast at home on Sunday before driving out to the park to meet Matt for some disc golf. Rob and I dressed as traditional golfers - polo shirts, gloves, tweed caps - much to Matt's chagrin (I have photos but forgot my camera).
My inability to throw more than 30 feet at a time led to an average triple bogey on each hole. Mini golf turned out to be a lot more strenuous than I expected. We ran up and down the park and all through the bushes in search of wayward frisbees. Two hours and 18 holes later, it was time to pack it up.
Exhausted, Rob and I stopped for a late lunch at Green Chile Kitchen. Back at home, we only had a half hour to recover and prepare for my cousin's engagement photo shoot. They picked us up at 4:30 and we drove over to Crissy Field for the pictures. Back at home again at 6:00. I worked on my paper camera some more.
The nerdapalooza clincher: I watched High School Musical for the first time on Sunday night. Wow. That is one perky movie. It reminded me of my brief infatuation with S Club 7. Did you know that Zac Efron is from my hometown? (Great, now I'm a nerd and 16 years old).
