Hit the Ground Running
Well, New Year, you haven't beaten me yet.
We went to Tommy's for NYE, and I stayed up super late playing Guitar Hero: Legends of Rock, which is quite different from Rock Band even though it is very much the same. I have no pictures from that night, as I was much too busy to even turn on my camera. This is what I remember: potato chips, keg of blue moon, sing, play drums, Dick - Clark - Happy - New- Year, play bass, pet dogs (Tommy has two cool greyhounds: Clyde and Ditty), play bass, "It's 5:30", play bass, "my eyes are burning?", "It's 6:30", time for bed.
Then on Friday, Kate & Flail & Joe and I went to see Seven Pounds with Will Smith and I cried. Well, Katie and Gail did too. It really couldn't be helped. It was good, but you don't have to see it in the theater. It made you want to be a better person. In fact, I probably didn't shake my old lady fist at anyone for the whole rest of the day...
Then Kate and I went to the gym, then to Target, then to her mom and dad's for dinner (yum!) then we went bowling! It was super fun. No pictures, yet again.
Saturday was a dead end, really...
But Sunday! Oh, Sunday! We went on adventures! Kate, Alicia and I went on adventures! I got to plan our adventure for this week, and I took us to the beach for FRESH AIR! My pops is sick and germy and I was really feeling cooped up. So we went to the beach:
And we took a LOT of pictures!
This is one of my favorites!
And we goofed a lot:
Tried to lean into each other...
but fell down.
And we met some cool people, including this dog, who's name I believe was Tofi:
He's a poodle. And was named after some kind of organic ink...
And then it was over and time to go home...or to Panchos Cantina for delicious skirt steak...depending on who you are.
We also hung out with Mr. Liam last night:
He will tell you about all things Thomas (which he pronounces to-MAS, like he's speaking Spanish and I love it!). All those tank engines with their claymation-y faces give me the creeps. But we had fun. Until it was time for a puzzle. And man, between me, Aunt Lishie and Liam we were able to piece it together, but just barely...That Thomas the Tank Engine is serious bid'ness.
