All traveled out

Between staying up until almost midnight last night watching LOST, traveling from home to NYC, to Long Island, back to NYC, and home again I am exhausted.  I am so thankful that next Monday is a holiday and that if I can make it to Friday it will be a three-day weekend.

Ok, first things first.  Last night was the series finale of LOST, six years of questions supposedly wrapped up.  So how did I like it?  Well, I cried, I had questions, I got some answers, and once I had time to think about the ending I liked it.  Initially I was disappointed, but now I think I get it, and you know what, it works.  Now it’s time to start watching all over again, from the beginning.

On Friday night I arrived in Penn Station at 7:01, a few subway rides and an actual stop at Subway later and I was at the boyfriends apartment.  After a quick dinner and outfit change, we hopped in a cab to head uptown.  It was a beautiful night in the city and we spent it outdoors on a roof with this view.

The Empire State Building supporting both the Yankees and the Mets for the weekend.  The summertime in the city is my absolute favorite time to be there.  On Saturday morning, the bf and I went on a 2 mile run along the East River.  It was the perfect temperature, and a gorgeous sunny morning.  We tried to go to 16 Handles for some self-serve frozen yogurt after the run, but it didn’t open until noon!  Come on now, some people want frozen yogurt at 11 am, geez.

Then it was time to journey on out to Long Island to celebrate Megan’s graduation from Hofstra law.  Originally the plan was to come back to the city at some point, but that didn’t work out and I woke up on a couch still on Long Island on Sunday morning.  As usual when I get together with a bunch of college friends, things tend to be a little out of control.  Bring six cans of alcoholic energy drink into the picture, and things are even more out of control.

Yes, you are reading that correctly 9.9% alc/vol, with caffeine.  These are always for sharing, never for drinking alone.

Me with my favorite ladies, the graduate is in the blue dress.  It was a day/night full of drinking and eating, flip cup and fun.  Somehow we made it out to a bar later, but I’m not sure how long we were actually there for.

All of the empty JOOSE cans, terrifying.  Sadly, on Sunday morning it was time to head back into the city so that we could all make it home in time for LOST.  I think I spent more time in Penn Station this weekend than anywhere else.  That is never how a weekend should be spent.  It was a great time though, and always good to see everyone, especially those that came up from VA and MD.  After a brief nap back at the bf’s, I took a 5:00 train home and didn’t move from my couch for the rest of the night once I got there.

I love fun weekends, but seriously my body is hating me today and I still have to make it through physical therapy tonight.  Ugh.  How was everyone else’s weekend?  I’m about to go catch up on the Google Reader, does anyone else have any thoughts on LOST?

  1. I am so glad you had such a fun weekend Kelly! Don’t hate me, but I can honestly say that I have never watched one episode of Lost!

  2. Lol…sounds like a fun weekend! I used to drink a drink like that one (alcohol + major caffeine) in college and WHOO it would knock me on my ass if I wasn’t careful 🙂

  3. it has everything your body needs!

  4. I’m so jealous you get to go to NYC all the time! I think once I finally get to visit there, I’m going to end up getting out of control… ha.

    I’m still suffering from the weekend hangover as well… it was so busy! It’ll be a challenge to get to the three-day weekend, but I’m up for it!

  5. Ah I am ashamed to admit I have had my fair share of Joose! Wildness always happened when drinking that stuff.

  6. Stopped watching Lost regularly when I started having nightmares but read recaps. I am VERY happy with the ending. I won’ spoil it for anyone but I will say that I hugged my doggie as I fell asleep last night. Vincent, staying with Jack = sobbed.

  7. What a weekend girl, sounds like fun!

  8. Yay for a fun weekend!

    I tried that Jooce stuff once when I was on the East Coast and it didn’t go down well. I can see the appeal though.

    I was dissapointed in the Lost ending, but I think it’s because I didn’t watch it enough to get all the nuances. Still, it seemed like a bit of a cop out.

  9. I’m so jealous of your weekends. I’ve never been anywhere. Let alone NYC. Sounds like you had fun!

  10. That is some high class boozing. I completely agree with you about taking the train to and from NYC – it is the least time-efficient thing ever. I feel bad, but it’s cheaper and faster for me to drive, drink, sober up, and drive home.

  11. I think I’m still confused, but in the end I liked the end. I think 🙂 If I got it right.

  12. Ive successfully avoided Lost this whole time, mostly out of stubbornness for people always raving about it. But now I’m thinking maybe I’ll get the DVDs. I did the same thing with Harry Potter and read them all in a month and absolutely loved them.

  13. Hmm.. Joose?! I’ve never seen that before! I love trips to NYC.. I’m glad you had a great time!
