Impressive - and the movie wasn't bad either.

So, struggled out of bed after not nearly enough sleep (screwed myself on Spring Forward Day again), dressed, and went downtown to see Watchmen at the Uptown.

tl;dr - if you liked the book, go see the movie. If you didn't read the book, go see the movie anyway. It's very well done.

So after the move, digex, therevdrnye, Messrs. Dunham & Wright, and Mike from NPR motored on out to Germantown, where we dined at Roy's Place, which is made of strange meats, odd condiments, and awesome; I cannot recommend it enough. Conversation ranged from the movie to political corruption to Cuba to the vile & repulsive Katarina Witt by way of Trabant jokes, LARPs, The Man Who Saved Britain, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, not necessarily in that order. Good food, good company, and good conversation - about as good as it gets without sex, drugs and/or rock & roll. Afterward, the remaining five of us piled into digex's little red truck and headed back to the Rockville Metro station, where we finally broke up and went our separate ways home.

It was a long ride back to Van Dorn Street.
Bedtime will come early tonight, I think.
