Hey all, I know its been a little while since I posted, and while a few super fun things went on this past weekend I just wanted a bit of downtime too. On last Friday night we went out for a few drinks and dancing at the Beauty Bar which was very fun. They had a great DJ playing old school, but totally good danceable music.
The main real reason I didn’t post was because on Saturday I went to this festival and I was waiting on some pics from a friend to post with my description, but I don’t have any pics yet, so I’ll just tell you what happened. Firstly I just think I should mention that at 8:30am Saturday morning I got up and ran probably 9km. This was the second weekend in a row that I did that, and while it was great, its pretty hard to do after a night of drinking and dancing. I was worried that the alcohol that was seeping through my skin was going to make other runners think I was out for an early morning drunken jog. The really nice thing about it was that by the end I was wide awake and totally clean. Definitely one way to get rid of a hangover
But I digress; so after the run I went out to this really awesome street fair. It was the Nihonmachi Street Festival (aka the
After that, we were all pretty beat so we went home and watched High School Musical which E just got on dvd. Maybe I was expecting too much. I think I remember Laura and the Pop Culture Shock girls really liking it a lot, but I just really wasn’t very impressed. It’s a Disney musical about peer pressure, following you heart and a bunch of other smarmy crap. All I want to say is that Grease did it much better and more realistically.

On Sunday it was another pool party. Out in Mountainview (that’s down south 40 miles or so) this time. It was cool hosted by our friends (in fact my only friends who are married) but our friends who are having their second child in a few weeks. They’re thinking of naming her Zoe, which is a very good name, but maybe I’m bias because of how much I like Killing Zoe. We had another great game of basketball in the pool, and although we were sober this time, it still got a bit violent and I managed to wrench my arm a bit. Its feeling better now, but it was super sore yesterday.
We also got to meet my parents new kittens, who you can see below here. If you haven’t I’d seriously recommend you click on either or both of those kitty pictures, with the increased resolution they are really even cuter. Seriously. I’m totally in love with them already.
Oh man, I was hoping to talk about some other stuff too, like my new most favorite podcast the GenY Retrocast… but that’ll have to wait until next time. I’m about to head out; podcasting tonight. I’ll catch you all on the flipside. Lates.
