My weekend was a whirlwind of getting up at the crack of dawn and going all day for two straight days, followed by a day of sloth.
To quickly sum up the past three days:
Joshua Tree National Park: Fabulous, even though I couldn’t do even the tiniest bit of climbing.
Dinner with CG: Fun, relaxing, but short, ’cause we were both exhausted and both had to get up at the crack of dawn the next morning.
Train to/from San Diego: So!much!better! than driving, and much prettier scenery. Might have to go back and see San Clemente up close and personal.
San Diego: Too short, but still had a wonderful lunch with DL, JQ and kim!.
A’s birthday dinner: Fun, relaxing, sparkly, heavily caffeinated, and tummy expanding yummy.
Sunday Slothday: Totally chilled – did laundry, watched MacGyver and Buffy dvds, read some Foxtrot, played with the cats, napped some, then watched tv until bedtime. I didn’t get to the dishes, but that’s nothing new.
What I learned this weekend:
+Jesse is cool.
+Hansen’s cakes are still the!best!
+My yarn bins make excellent ottomans.
+The orange line trolley doesn’t run nearly as often as I’d thought.
+I should still be icing my knee, even two months after the initial injury.
+Crunchy things on a salad are not necessarily a bad thing.
+”Very Spicy Shrimp” is, sadly, a relative term.
+MacGyver will even hit on a woman grieving for her dead sister, big ol’ man-ho that he is. Also, he needs to take krav.
+”To Serve Man is a cookbook.” Actually, I knew that one, but had forgotten.
+Rock climbers do not climb rope, they climb rocks.
+I’m too old to do 20 hour days anymore.
+Union Station needs more elevators.
+Chris Golden’s new book comes out tomorrow: Wildwood Road
+The daughter of an old family friend lives on my street, just two blocks away. Small!freakin’!world!
I’m sure there’s more, but I’ve got to get back to work now.
