Feeling Fine

First up, to answer a few FAQs after last night's post:

Jess, how ya feeling today?

Fine. I felt a touch out of sorts when I got up this morning, but it wasn't anything a few bottles of water and 2 Advil couldn't cure. It was probably good that last night was a week night, though; otherwise, the evening carried with it a distinct possibility of drinking and rockin' out until the wee hours. Pretty much the only two reasons we stopped when we did was because we couldn't get past Metallica's "Sandman" (that song is wicked hard, yo) and because our bassist wanted to go home and go to bed (sorry Jon, if you wanna be a rockstar, you have to learn to stay up past 8:30).

Jess, when does bowling start again? We miss you're drunken rambling and enjoyed the opportunity to criticize your grammar.

We bowl in the summer, June-August. So you still have another few months of relative sobriety to wait through. But I agree, I miss bowling too and I can't wait for June.

So...in other news:

Watched the lunar eclipse last night and thought it was pretty tubular. I thought it was weird how the moon got a reddish glow to it. Or maybe that was 10 beers that were casting a rosy hue over the scenery...

Today, after school, I have a few errands to run, then I have to pack for my weekend trip to the frozen tundra, and hopefully, I can also pack a run in (to the evening, not into my suitcase). I'm not sure if I'm gonna bring running stuff with me to MN or not. Part of me says, "Are ya crazy? It's gonna be cold and you won't have time -- you'll be busy drinking and participating in other debauchery all weekend!"

But the other part of me says, "Jess, you haven't run at all this week and it would be good to sneak something in over the weekend if you can. Besides, running in the cold does offer a certain 'toughness' to your already impressive running reputation." Thus, I think I'll pack the running stuff (it doesn't take up too much room) and just play it by ear.

So -- I'll update later today if I run (sorry, when I run). Lator gators.

Glad you had fun last night. We had full cloud cover here because of the snow and totally missed the eclipse.

Wes said...

Woo hoo! The start of the bowling league is almost as exciting as Spring Training :-)

AnthonyP said...

The lunar eclipse was awesome, wasn't it.

June said...

awww... I can't wait for you either Jess.

:P

Have fun!

Wow... 8 or 9 or 10 beers would have me on my ass! You are one lil' toughie! ;) (&&& -31, what are you going to wear?!!)

Steve Stenzel said...

Good luck on that run (that WILL happen...)

That moon was pretty great last night!

Oh I love being the front girl, Rock Band Rocks!! My little guys are practicing the drums all the time. Lots of fun.

Hope you are recovering well today - have a great time on the weekend. I'd definitely take the running gear and sneak something in.

Triseverance said...

I am going south and you are going north, love it. Pack your stuff it is supposed to be almost 30 here over the weekend. A freaking heat wave I tell ya.

Firefly's Running said...

Sounds like fun, Jess!

David said...

Okay, I know it kicks off in June, but are you going to have a 16 week training plan leading up to bowling season? And will it include beer? Please?
:-p

Hey, travel safe this weekend, and pack plenty plus more. It's gonna be chilly. Forget running (unless you really want to), and maybe work on core or some other stuff. Or just work out the ol' liver!

J~Mom said...

Very nice idea there David. A training plan for bowling season. What do you say, Jess?

Crystal said...

Sounds like you had a good time Wednesday...bet you sang your heart out! Have a great weekend "up nort" in the nice cold tundra.

ws said...

Have a good trip up north...cold weather running does add to your street cred quotient. And, please, leave the really cold weather there, just bring back some 60 degree days with you.

If you run in MN in the winter, you will have a greater appreciation for FL in the winter.

Mendy said...

Jess, have a safe trip up to the stay as warm as you can.

I don't recall the lunar having a red glowish tint? :-)

I couldn't hang with you at all in the drinking dept. You can throw down some beers. I'd be passed out on the floor beside Taryn.

Metallica? Tubular? Where the hell am I?

Southern Fried Girl said...

Too many clouds for us to see the eclipse. I was bummed.

Marcy said...

LOL! Glad you're feeling better :-)

Viv said...

The rock band doing Metallica, had me triping out. Love that if you wanna be a rock star you gotta stay up past 8:30..LMAO! Have a blast this weekend!!
