I got tested for HIV today-- it came back negative.

The test only takes 20 minutes. That suprized me. Five years ago it took a week. I had mentally prepared myself for getting tested, then waiting a week and then hearing the results. So when the counselor said "This will only take 20 minutes" my heart skipped a beat. It was good that I would know so soon, but I just wasn't prepared to know then. I know RO and I have been good, but I haven't been tested in a long time and I just couldn't remove those small doubts.

Last night the Seattle Times took RO and I on a dinner cruise around Seattle. They do this to thank their advertisers.

I kind of like be schmoozed by a large company. The dinner was ok. A very corny magician was the entertrainment. He had a few great tricks, but his stage talk was tire some.

Every day RO checks for a reply from his daughter. MySpace says she has read his letter. She still hasn't replied.

Sunday night RO and I went to a March Of Dimes fund raiser. It was a silent auction plus a dinner.

I've been to these sort of events before. The food is always good, and no one checks for tickets at the door. I've got this eurge to look up another such event and go to it without paying, just to see what happens.
RO found his daughter on MySpace.

RO is divorced and has two children. The divorce was very ugly. The end result was that he hasn't been able to talk to his kids in years. His wife has completly cut off contact between RO and the children.

Last Sunday he googled the names of his daughter and son and he stumbled upon his daugther's MySpace site.

He sent her an email message. No word back yet.

RO and I worked all weekend-- our two best employees both had Sunday off and we always work Saturdays since that's the busiest day.

At the end of Sunday RO remarked that he was tired. We have both grown fond of taking Sundays off.

We had a relaxing weekend.

Friday night was a party at Matt & Sandy's. I think RO had a bit much to drink-- he was very chatty the whole night.

Saturday night Matt, RO and I watched Posidon at our place. I don't really recommend the new Posidon. It had good special effects, but I just didn't care. You could just tell that characters were going to die, or live, according to what the writer wanted to make you feel. So the whole movie felt forced.

Sunday night we watch Night Watch. A weird horror/action flick from Russia. I didn't really enjoy it either. I will say the cinematography was great. However it tried to do to much and ended up not excelling at anything.
