Amy's in bar exam study mode, so obviously that keeps her pretty busy.
Friday night I got home from work, and for some reason, despite the fact that it was probably close to 100 degrees outside, I decided to ride my bike over to Ryan and Jamie's place. It's not super far, but it was hot, and there are some little hills between here and there. Anyway, I made it over there and back, but by the time I got home I had begun to more fully appreciate the inherent limitations ofa fixed gear cruiser bike that's slightly too small for you.
After my bike ride I showered, and then Amy and I joined our friends Heidi and Jaci for dinner at Chuy's. We drank margaritas, caught up, and ate some tasty Tex Mex. It was a good time.
On Saturday we got up and went to the grocery store.
We've been eating a lot of watermelon lately, and it's been really good. Also,this might make me sound like a dork, but I still can't get over seedless watermelons. I remember that when I was a kid we used to eat a lot of watermelon, and we would actually talk about how cool it would be if you could get a watermelon without seeds (usually this would come up while we were spitting out watermelon seeds or helping Mom pick seeds as she cut up a watermelon for the fridge). I remember the first types of seedless watermelons coming out, but they weren't really as sweet or as good as regular watermelons. Nowadays, though, they've pretty much got seedless watermelons down to a science (literally, perhaps). I'm not sure what kind of crazy bioengineering took us to this point, but in exchange for eating delicious watermelon without seeds I'm willing to overlook some Frankensteinian tomfoolery.
Anyway, Saturday morning we went to the store. It's nice and peaceful on Saturday mornings.
After the store we got home, and I rode my bike over to Ryan's house again.
By the time I got there, I was sick of having a bike that was too small and had no gears. I've been looking at bikes online for a couple of months now, and I knew that my brother was the perfect man to empower me to go out and blow some cash on a recreational purchase. We loaded into my brother's Honda Element (which has an insane amount of cargo room for a small SUV) and headed over to University Cyclery. A couple of hours later (and after a short stop at the comic book shop- always a likelihood when you head north of 35th street with Ryan) I was back at Ryan and Jamie's with my sweet new bike.
