    Question A few sentences

    Hi, are the following sentences correct?

    This was a lousy weekend, even though there were some issues that could make me think it wasn't so bad. The sun was shining all the time (an advantage, for sure). I met my friends I like hang out with (an advantage, as well). I didn't work at all: all the time I spent on relaxing, smiling, sleeping, eating, and so on... (an advantage, don't you think?) I bought a matchesbox, and I am the fan of matches. The only thing that makes me think it was a bad weekend was that, again, I didn't win on a lottery. So, in summary, what a lousy weekend it was! I hope the next one, the thought of which I've been keeping in my mind all the time since the beginning of Monday, will be better. Let us all hope that!

    Thanks,
    Nyggus
