I will Blind you with my Awesomness

It's been awhile since I've posted. I've been tired and uninspired.

What's happened over the last few days?

Well, for one thing, Kung Fu Panda kicks ass. It was flippin' fantastic.

Another thing... work is hard. It's hard to sit in one place all the live long day. But, at the end of the week, it feels pretty cool to see all of those hours on my time card. It will feel even cooler seeing my paycheck on Friday. Plus, I am working my way toward a fun time in Greece. I mean, making money equals not sleeping in the dumpster in Athens or having to ride a piece of rubbish across the ocean to Crete... although that would make a cool blog entry.

It is weird to think that this work thing is what my life will be for the next three or four decades.

And it's also kind of depressing.

I went shopping with J and J yesterday. We were walking, and this cute little boy saw us and jumped/fell of a bench and ran over to me. He smiled, and grabbed me around the knees and gave me a big hug.

I'm thinking he thought I was someone else, like his aunt or sister or something, but it's still nice to get hugged by a toddler with a huge smile on his face.

Today we went on a bike ride. I almost died.

But I am proud of myself. I was ready to quit about 13 minutes into it, but decided to push myself. So Mike asked me what my goal was, and we decided to make it all the way to the Kohn's house. It took forever, especially because I was in gears 1:1 and moving at a snails pace... but I did it!

I collapsed on the front lawn as soon as we got there. A little while later, Dave came out of the garage with a dolly and asked if I wanted to hop on so he could roll we into the house.

Thanks, Dave.

Dave and Mike then decided to come up with the most logical way to get to the Big House by bike.

I finally broke up their little pow-wow by telling them that there was no way that I was going to ride my broken butt all the way to the Big House. Grr...

So we drove there instead.

We got the girls, got Joey Carrillo, and headed to the Big House for a play date. The street lights were out all along Valmont Road, so we decided to be good Samaritans and call the Boulder PD. Mike told them that there was no emergency, but all of the street lights were out. She told him that they were aware of the issue... and then hung up on him.

So much for being thankful for awesome citizens like us.

The power was also out at the Big House. This means that when I went to have a relaxing read in the massage chair... it was just a stupid regular chair. No nice massage. Only stupid chair...

Tonight we went to Rincon Del Sol. It was fun, as it always is to eat with my parents. They are funny people. Dad looked up the words to the theme to Mr. Ed.

It's now stuck in my head... of course.
