As I was saying, it has been a very unusual weekend.
Relatives from my father's side of the family (the one with the convoluted family history) came over from Daet. I ended up getting appointed official babysitter, my two sisters having escaped from the job by some unknown means.
Saturday, of course, was quite a busy day for me. Two of my friends are taking a multimedia class that requires the submission of a trailer. Naturally, they chose to do the trailer for a game they're working on. For that, they needed a rotating video of a girl using the computer. Guess who ended up volunteering for this no-budget production? ;) It was a lot of fun. We managed to finish at midnight. Although Eric and Dennison weren't completely satisfied with the video, they figured it would do. I was okay with doing a reshoot (hooray for phenylethylamine!), but they decided to wrap up.
The next day found me in bed until three.
Jerome came while we were playing Monopoly on the roofdeck. He did
quite well - a flurry of trades helped all of us get monopolies, but
luck would have all of us landing on his properties!
Arko apparently decided to be my chaperone, insisting on always interposing herself between me and Jerome. It was kinda funny, even. She banned us from winking at each other, talking in another language (Japanese was _very_ useful, even with my limited vocabulary), and even talking in 'advanced' English (jargon was also quite useful).
Still, I can say that I rather enjoyed taking care of the kids. We survived, barely, although I'm not sure if the stuffed toys did. Now it's back to work and school and everything else.
