No, no, I didn’t forget I had a blog- I remembered, and just didn’t post. Why? Oh, because I started my long weekend on a Thursday of course and here are some of the things that I’ve learned over this long weekend:
John Mayer is a million times better live then on his cd.
Michael Franti and Spearhead are brilliant openers, and I think again, better live after a drink or two then on their album- I may need to listen to their album more, but as of right now, I stand by this point.
My aunt has the ability to out drink me at John Mayer concerts- not that it was a competition- it only felt like it when she was waving empty beers in front of my face.
BC Ferries can take up to 3 hours between Vancouver and Victoria in a windstorm- and it’s not a fun 3 hours- if you’re not hungover before you get on board- you will feel like it when you land on the other side.
Dirty Martinis are simple to make at home- and equally as delicious
The gym is a wonderful place in a windstorm, and working out the day before a 2h45 run is not a good idea
Waves really do crash over the cars on Dallas Road- knocking some runners, not me, in the face with a good dose of salt (funny from inside a heated car)
It’s ok after a long run to spend 2 hours in bed, and then goto bed that night at 830pm and sleep until 730am.
Neocitrons are great in the moment, but their hangover lasts until 3pm- not great.
Easter dinner is a lot different when the whole family is out of town, but malted Easter Eggs are just as delicious
It’s ok to have a week where you have A LOT of fun and go for drinks 6 of 7 nights a week once every 3 years-sometimes you need it
I’m going to say this in advance- It’s ok to sleep for a week straight after you pretend to be 20 for a week and behave like sleep is for sissies- I am a sissy and I need my sleep.
So there you have it- a few or a lot of lessons I’ve managed to pick up along the way- this Easter long weekend has been both long, and marvelous. Tonight we have our Easter dinner which will consist of home made pasta, ribs, bunny cake and a little known thing called the Beer Hunt (the parents are still wishing we were 14 or younger- and the 6 of us 23-28 are more then happy to play along for beer).
Hope everyone has had an amazing Easter weekend. What’s one thing you learned since the weekend began?
