I took off on Friday to make it 4 days of holiday. By the end, I was in a full power failure and probably felt close to the worse I’ve ever felt in my life. We played Bball in the 90 degree weather and after the first HALF court game, I knew I was in trouble. I was starting to get nauseous and dizzy and my legs weren’t responding to my brain. One problem was that I hadn’t eaten any food for something like 30 hours. This was a pure liquid alcohol diet and I was feeling the aftermath pretty hardcore. They say you need something powerful to make you change your ways and this was actually pretty close. Am I swearing off alcohol? No. The bike race is this weekend and I find more fun in day drinking on a Sunday then most activities that I can think of. Wagon thought of a good idea to sell off our parking spots in conjunction with a bike race ticket and see if we can make any money. We might be getting a keg for the day so that’s something to look forward to.

I got an chance to hang out with the Rock this weekend which was different because I don’t think I’d seen him in 6 months or more. It’s funny sometimes how people just kind of float out of your life from time to time. I don’t do the best job of keeping in touch, but it’s not because I don’t like the person, it’s because I don’t have much emotional attachment in my relationships with people. I just get this feeling from people sometimes that they are really excited to see me because its been a long time and I just don’t have the same level of enthusiasm. This is no doubt one of my character flaws as I lack the ability to socialize properly sometimes. Once I get to the situation I’m pretty normal but sometimes I just shy away from doing things that are different. As I’m writing this I’m starting to think that maybe I need to do a better job of becoming a people person. I just find it easier to forget than to pursue.

I’m in a really rough spot now anyway. I’ve deteriorated my poker bankroll. I’ve finished Lord of the Rings and I have no books to read. I actually have an episode of Treme to watch and there’s a series on Starz I might check out. Other than that I’m going to try to sweat off the beer weight in the hot, hot, heat and get back to normal.
