Had a ;nice, relaxing ;weekend. Geeked out at Borders on Friday, and bought some more electronic entertainment from EB Games. ;Had a huge Indian lunch buffet on Saturday. Went swimming Sunday morning, and saw Christopher Titus do standup Sunday evening. Last night, Laju invited me to dinner and drinks with a couple of other friends. Turns out, her friends knew (quite well) someone I know at work, so that was interesting as well. So, all in all, I’ve had a somewhat active week.

I’ve also started watching this really good anime series called Fullmetal Alchemist . Yes, I know it’s a “cartoon”, but it’s a really well-done story. ;It explores a lot of mature and sensitive issues, like God, science, faith, love, loyalty, and death. ;I especially like the relationship between the two brothers. I’m only 19 episodes in (out of 51), but it’s already really good, and I’ve heard it gets even better. Can’t wait to see how it ends. Probably the most interesting thing is that I’m watching the entire series in the original Japanese, with English subtitles. Fortunately, the subtitles are pretty good (from what I can make out).
