Oh sure, I could have written this blog last night from the comfort of ITP-Readers Lisa’s and Randy’s house last night, but we watched Bridesmaids and then the end of the Oscars instead.
Since I am writing this at the airport this will be a patented ITP Short Blog…
Much Fun In Raleighwood
For the better part of the weekend the weather didn’t want to participate in the fun. I landed in misty, rainy skies on Friday evening and didn’t see the sun until yesterday morning.
We didn’t let this stop us, however.
We attempted to go bowling on Saturday afternoon but was stymied at our favorite bowling alley because they were having a charity event that day, and the second establishment’s alleys must have been paved with gold for they wanted $20/person for two hours (including the three and seven year old children). From the bowling alleys we chose to head to Frankie’s, which is like a smaller version of Dave & Buster. At Frankie’s we played video games, skee ball, and had a snack.
Saturday evening was adult night, Lisa and Randy had procured a sitter and I was tasked with choosing the restaurant at which we ate. I chose one of my wine-friendly establishments, Bella Monica, where we sat at the bar and stuffed our faces with delicious Italian food and wine.
With the sun out again we nixed the notion of bowling on Sunday and chose to play a little basketball with the boys prior to heading to the local YMCA. Lisa cajoled Randy and me into doing a Body Pump class. Did I mention that he and I were the only men in the room? I did fairly well for an old man who hasn’t done a workout class in some time. Unfortunately in the process of playing basketball, using an unfamiliar elliptical machine to warm up, or doing the Body Pump class I manage to strain the inside of my right knee. As you do, we followed up our trip to the Y with on to PR (Players Retreat) where we consumed a few beers and some snack foods.
All I Learned From Bridesmaids
I had seen bits and pieces of Bridesmaids before, but never anything close to the entire movie. While I certainly enjoyed it, all I learned from Bridesmaids is that in order for me to get a pretty woman like Kristen Wiig she will have to be completely down-and-out on her luck.
Okay have to wrap up in order to get ready to fly home.
