Skipped the Running Again

This time in favor of meeting up with Viv and her husband Shane for dinner and drinks. We met up with them in downtown Ft Lauderdale on Las Olas Blvd and had dinner and then stopped at a nearby bar for after dinner drinks. I hope Viv will post the pics from that. Specifically the waitress we had there. Jerry and Shane reported that she had barked at them while Viv and I were in the restroom, and we didn't entirely believe them, but then later...yeah...that lady was whack. And whenever she came to our table, I just had the nervous-please-don't-take-us-out-back-and-kill-us-laugh that even Viv adopted later on. Hey, it may have saved our lives.

Anyhoo...it was a lot of fun to meet up again with Viv and Shane, and it's too bad that today is a Tuesday (and a "school" night) and not a rockin' Saturday because otherwise, you'd be getting this report in the morning tomorrow and I'd be complaining about my hangover and feeling like I'd just licked a Wookie. Viv and Shane are that cool. Or maybe I just potentially drink that much on the weekend. During the week, I have some level of restraint. Kind of.

It was good to visit with them here in SoFlo; next time, Jerry and I will have to fly out to Houston for a visit. Too bad the Houston Marathon just filled for 2009. Maybe 2010 beckons to me!

Nothing wrong with skipping a few, as long as you replace it with a few (and I'm not talking replacement training) !

I hear licking a Wookie is quite the aphrodisiac in some universes. I think the feeling you might have been searching for is the "oh crap I feel like I swallowed a yoda."

Great shot ladies!!!

I think Viv and Shane are that cool AND you drink a lot on the weekend. You're the kind of gal that can have her cake and eat it too :-)

Viv said...

Jess, we had a lot of laughs with you guys. Some were of the nervous nature but laughs nonetheless. I will post the pics as soon as I get home tonight from family tour duty. I am sure I will have had enough cuban coffee to keep me up on vampire hours....hahahaha (nervous laugh) You two have to come to Houston fo sho!

A couple days off of running can be a good thing.
