tales from a weekend

Last Friday night, we went to Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil. It was a funny movie and I'd recommend it even for folks who aren't fans of horror. It begins with a typical "college kids on a camping weekend" setup, and things go downhill fast when they assume that the pair of rednecks they encounter in the woods are twisted killers.

On Saturday, we ran some errands and then went to Durham for the World Beer Festival. My favorites of all the new things I sampled were the Elliot Ness Amber Lager from Great Lakes Brewing and Kuhnhenn Conundrum. Right after that, we ate garlic fries then caught a late showing of Beetlejuice at the Escapism Film Festival, which is just as good as I'd remembered.

Between that "Shake Shake Shake Senora" scene and getting home, I hit a deer with my car. We're okay, the deer ran off, and our car has some totally fixable body damage. It was still pretty scary and I didn't sleep well that night.

It takes more than a deer with a death wish to slow us down, so after Sunday afternoon football and a call to our insurance company, we went back to Durham for a Weird Al concert. The show was really good, with costume changes and a special appearance by Darth Vader in the encore. I do wish it had been at a regular concert venue rather than a fancy theater with seating, because the crowd stayed politely in their chairs the whole time.

Today we had the car looked over and they'll fix it for us next week. After seeing the difference between the total estimate and what we'll be expected to pay, I'm pretty grateful for insurance.

It was a great weekend with the exception of that whole "running over a woodland creature" thing.
