Well, yesterday I didn't achieve my goal of going to the gym-- meaning that my three times a week streak is busted, unless you average in the four times I went last week. I did end up socializing with my crew, though, so I consider it an evening firmly in the "win" column. Let me back up just a smidge. Thursday I did go to the gym; a short workout but not a bad one. Still curling the 80s so it looks like that will be my new standard. I only stuck around for an hour, but I pushed that hour fairly hard. I run this town. I rule Bartertown. I had picked up the CSA after work & while I was at the gym Jenny prepared a salad of squash & corn & cucumbers & onions & goat cheese that was pretty great. The meat I picked up from the grocery was...pretty awful. I lack the skill of understanding beef. It is all a mystery to me. I picked the worst kind. Total disaster. We watched an episode of Storage Wars, & then went to bed. No big deal. Friday was way more fun, though. Terra & Brian & Jocelyn & I walked over to Crocodile Lounge to meet up with Kat, Amber & Meredith. Crocodile is the Manhattan counterpart to Alligator Lounge, where I had my birthday a few million years ago. Free pizza with every beer! Which means, in essence, a ton of pizza & a moderate amount of beer. I took pictures, because I'm trying to be better about photo-documenting. Some of them were taken by Brian, but I'm not sure which, except obviously the one that I'm in he took. Dan came as well, but arrived after the first round of the camera & left before the second, when we left Crocodile & went to Kat's apartment. Similarly, Toy came towards the end, but missed the picture taking. Max came right in the perfect slot; he wasn't there long but did manage to land some photos. Jenny missed the beer & pizza on account of, you know, having a job without summer hours, but she didn't like her photo, so pfft, it disappeared into the aether. I don't know why, I think she looked pretty! Still, we sat with her toes on my lap, cracking up about dirty feet, pumice stones, & Phil Collins. When everyone rolled out for phase three of the party, Jenny & I parted ways & came home & watched some My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I'm eating the leftover burrito from dinner as we speak.
