Smashing, just smashing

I had quite the awesome weekend. Friday night, Ruthie and I went to a Noodle place called, ironically, “Nothing But Noodles”. They had a very wonderful bow tie pasta with a very excuisite marinara sauce.

The best part of the weekend, though, was probably the end. I really love Sunday. I have certainly been loving it of-late. The first half of it is usually quite relaxing. I had some time with Ruthie. It was very mellow and serene. We had some lunch together–wings, of course, and she was the cook.

Eventually, after suffering through some girly-type television (I will not say what), we went to RCIA. I am so glad that I am going with her to these. At first, I was a good bit hesitant; almost to the point where I was when I was little and didn’t want to go to Sunday school–but perhaps not that bad 🙂 As I’ve been going with her, though, I’ve been discovering what a joyous occasion it truly is. She’s becoming Catholic, and it’s such a beautiful and exciting journey. I’m so very glad that she wants me to be there by her side, along with her sponsor. I’m learning so much about myself, and also about my Faith that I have forgotten over the years–and relearning things that were misconceived in my younger years.

I made Level 52 this morning. I’m still questing in Un’Goro Crater and have a few more to go, still. I’ll be 60 before I know it 🙂

I started playing Oblivion. It is truly an amazing game; it’s everything Morrowind was and then some. The graphics are absolutely stunning. The physics are amazing; they’re rendered via the havok engine–the same used in Half-Life 2. The way the grass sways with the trees is just astoundingly beautiful. The quests have been a good bit like the ones from Morrowind, though I’m on mostly Mages quests right now. I also bought a horse, which is pretty awesome. No longer do players have to walk or take a pretend Silt Strider. Also, the quick travel via the map helps out a lot.

Anyhoo, hope everyone had a great weekend and don’t dread too much the week ahead.
