Whole Lotta Nothin' Goin' On  

So, the long weekend is over, and I am spent. Half of my weekend was spent camping up north with a bunch of friends, and the other half was spent doing absolutely nothing. I loved every minute of it.

Camping up north was a blast. The rive was about 40 miles away, and took about 2 hours to get there due to traffic on the 101, but the real trouble arise with Charlie Murphy, who gets a little car sick, so she threw up a couple times and we had to stop and clean up. Not the most fun, but thankfully she was in her cage and it didn't get on my seats. Mark and I got in around 7, and started drinking around 7:02. The five of us who went up just relaxed that night around the fire, just shooting the shit and drinking (vanilla screwdrivers for me) til' about midnight, then we decided to go to a nearby dive bar and drink some more. Fun stuff.

The next day was spent down by the river, doing a little swimming, lying out in the sun, and finally finishing the book I've been reading for weeks now, American Gods. Excellent book, may write about it more later. Anyway, the water was great and the sun was beaming, got some nice color... a little too much, as I was in serious pain later that night, and well into the next two days. Oh, BTW, good tip: if your gonna shave off facial hair, I'd recommend doing after you go sunning... I have an interesting lighter coloring where my goatee used to be in comparison to my face.

Anyway, Sunday was supposed to be a big lounge/sleep day, but it quickly became a shopping day. A friend of mine needed to buy his wife a golf set, so we drove around most of the day trying to track a good one down. On the way, I was able to pick up three nice shirts for the summer, so I won't be wearing my Target short-sleeve button downs all season. Also tried to pick up Bubba Ho-Tep on DVD, but it was sold out yet again... damn geeks, when's it gonna be my turn! Later that night, a few of us played the new Pop Culture Trivial Pursuit, and, astonishingly, I lost! Couldn't believe it, especially seeing as the first question I get was about the X-Men.

Finally, aside from a morning of driving some balls at the golf park (man, my slice is fuckin' insane), yesterday was the ultimate in vegamating. So much fun...

Don't really know what the point of this is, other than to remind myself that doing nothing for a whole weekend, even though it appears you did alot, is so damn fun.

(Jay) Hey man, camping's awesome. Did I tell you about last year when I spent a week in a cabin in the mountains alone, absolutely no human contact. Loved it. American Gods is a great book, loved that too. I didn't do anything this weekend but get Lyme's disease, but in two weeks I'll be in Dublin, Ireland. Woohoo!!! Start to envy me now!

Holz, your work email keeps getting bounced back to me. So I ask again via this forum. Wine Festival, Harry Potter and bbq in the OC this weekend? Reel Big Fish in July? We would love to see you...

Damn, I wish I could take you up on that, because I've yet to find someone to go see Harry Potter with me. Problem is my roommates one for the week, and I can't leave the dog alone... sorry babe.

Reel Biog Fish... damn, I still don't think I can make it in July (when is it again?)...

So what are we doing when we come visit you for the 4th?
No friends can house/dog-sit for the weekend?

Oh, and in regards to vegamating:

vegamatev. vegamated, vegamating, vegamates1. To rest for an extended period of time during daylight hours.

2. To eat an exorbitant amount of junk food while watching cartoons for more than 2 hours

3. To throw Vegamite on a sexual partner's naked body while screaming "That's good on ya', mate!"
