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.
