My Liver Needs a Rest Day

Hello!  I’m back from my beach vacation, well sort of, I think my brain is still there but I had a lovely time with my friends.  It was nice spending pretty much a whole weekend disconnected from the world, seriously we didn’t even watch TV, and now it’s back to reality :(.  I’ll try to make this long recap as painless as possible, mostly because I’m tired and don’t feel like writing a lot.

A fully stocked fridge makes for happy guests, what’s not pictured are the 11 frozen pizzas in the freezer.

So much for our plan to take it easy on Friday night so we all felt good for Seacrets on Saturday morning.

Cupcakes to celebrate my birth… they were delicious despite getting a little melted during the drive out.

Made it to Seacrets the next day by 11:05, and that my friends, is a huge accomplishment.  Waters and pain in da asses for everyone!

Not sure lemon drop shots were necessary, but they were delicious nonetheless.

There were two giant thunderstorms that rolled through on Saturday, one lasting about 5 minutes, the other a little longer.  Both times they kicked us out of the bay until it passed, and after the second our group had dwindled from 10 people to 6.  It didn’t deter us though, and once the storm passed we continued our party in the bay.

Things not captured on film on Saturday:

  • chicken fights in the pool upon our return to the house
  • massive amounts of pizza eating
  • a game of trivia
  • a game of cranium
  • a new game we made up called complete the lyric which was played until 4 am
  • how much everyone was struggling after Seacrets

Sunday we gathered ourselves and made it to the actual beach for a few hours, before another thunderstorm once again rolled in and ruined our fun.  We took cover at the Rusty Rudder for lunch to try to wait it out, but were unsuccessful, instead we watched tons of boat drama as the storm raged.

If I told you Sunday night involved three games of Trivial Pursuit, and two games of Family Feud and you picture a wholesome night of fun, you’d be wrong.  We ran out of booze and resulted to drinking Smirnoff straight, from a bowl, with a ladle.  Which probably explains pictures like this:

Laughing so hard I couldn’t stand up.  But yes, real life Family Feud takes my prize as the most fun game of the weekend, despite the fact that my “family” The Pitbull’s, was robbed!  The vodka had a specific role at one point, something about you take a sip when you get a strike, eventually it was just passed around for fun.

Seemed like a good idea at the time, probably why everything seemed so funny, and no one could stop laughing.  Anyway, yesterday everyone that was left packed up and hit the road to home, except for me and Dani.  We weren’t quite ready to bid farewell to the beach, so we spent a few last hours reading by the ocean before enjoying a Snow Crab leg feast at Crabby Dick’s and heading home.

We made it back to VA around 9:30 last night, and thus ended the final part of my birthday celebrations.  It was a good one, so I’m hoping the year is up to par.  And hey, it’s already Tuesday!

A little too much fun

Well, Saturday night was delightful and if anything it definitely served as a reminder as to why I no longer drink like I used to in college.  My old and washed-up self cannot handle it.  I spent the entire day yesterday either on the couch or in my bathroom throwing up.  Gross.

I blame the table of alcohol, and my lack of self-control apparently.  Oh well, you live ya learn.  I think the best part of the night was playing The Beatles Rock Band until 2 am, I am a champion, let me just say that right now.  Paige was very tired and not amused by our loud singing.

Also, around 11 or 12 I think we stumbled upon a Britney Spears tribute on the FUSE network, playing all of her old most popular videos.  It is safe to say that a Brit Brit dance party immediately ensued and didn’t stop until the boys changed the channel on us.  Here’s a picture of Ashley, Michelle, and I still somewhat early in the night before we got completely out of hand.

Seeing as I was completely out of commission yesterday, I watched a lot of Lifetime.  There were some quality movies on, and while Misha Barton’s life may be in the gutter she can still play a crazy ex-gf pretty damn well.  I also sat through a horrible Lindsay Lohan movie, I Know Who Killed Me.  Awful, I think the only reason I didn’t change the channel was because I couldn’t reach the remote.  I wonder if Lifetime was running a theme yesterday of “actresses who used to have careers” because there was a movie with Elizabeth Berkley on also.  Hmm…

Anyway, I was doing some online browsing earlier and realized that the ING Philadelphia Half Marathon is September 19 and registration is open.  I’m very tempted to sign up, but if I allow myself 13 weeks to train, that puts me at the end of June/first week of July and I’m wondering if I’ll be fully able to run by then.  I don’t want to sign up for another race and lose the entry fee like I did for Broad Street, but I also don’t want registration to close.  Thoughts?  I’m probably going to ask my physical therapist tonight was his thoughts are also.

Alright I hope everyone had a great weekend, I’ll be catching up my Google reader throughout the day to see what everyone was up to!  Happy Monday!
