A New Obsession

So for various reasons, I ended up making a last minute decision and not trekking up to NYC this weekend with the roommates, which left me with an empty house and no plans.  At least that meant I didn’t have to miss kickball now!

Unfortunately, the weekend got off to a rough start because as I was heading home from Maryland and into Virginia, the traffic reports told me this: “If you’re going into Virginia, you’re basically screwed.”  Wonderful, fantastic, just what I like to hear on a Friday afternoon.  So I did what any normal 25 year-old girl would do, and pulled out my GPS to locate the nearest mall.

Lucky for me, it was only 2 miles away, even if going that two miles did take almost a half an hour.  Even luckier for me was that it was a nice mall, with some of my favorite stores, like Apple, and JCrew.  Which is how I ended up with this little baby.

What can I say, I’m an emotional and impulsive shopper.  I’m also now obsessed with my pretty, new, iPhone.  So what apps do I need?  I’ve already got Words With Friends, Angry Birds, Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Four Square, Wikipedia, Hipstamatic.  Come on people, gimme some good ones!

Saturday’s kickball double header ended up being rained out, but that doesn’t mean our flip cup matches couldn’t be played.  So I pulled out my rain boots, and hiked on into DC to meet up with the rest of my team around 1.  My team pretty much kicks ass and went 10-0 in flip cup matches, which is pretty damn impressive.  Apparently while we were crammed into a basement bar all day there were some pretty nasty storms going on outside.  I was completely oblivious, and almost surprised it was still daylight out when I made the walk back to the metro to go home.

Unfortunately I left my camera at work, so I have no pictures to share, and I wish I could direct you to the leagues Flikr stream, but it is password protected for a reason :).  I spent the rest of my Saturday with a pizza, and watching Country Strong for the 3rd time.  Yes, 3rd.  I liked it that much, although it was NOT what I was expecting at all.

Sunday was pretty much spent on the couch, until I finally managed to drag myself to the grocery store around 7 pm.  I’m hoping I stocked up on just enough to get me through the week, since I’m heading home to PA on Friday after work.  I played a lot of Angry Birds on Sunday kids, it’s as addicting as Darren said it was.  I also watched the latest Harry Potter movie, it was interesting.

The Boston Marathon is about to kick off, and you bet your ass I paid the $4.99 to get the live stream from Universal Sports.  Good luck to everyone running!

It Was a Good One

Well folks, it was a long weekend of drinking which left me exhausted and holed up in the house on the couch all day yesterday.  From the time the roommates and I left the house Saturday at noon, until we returned around 1 am we didn’t sit down once.  Probably part of the reason I slept until 11:30 on Sunday morning :).

Friday night the ladies and I headed into Chinatown to Lucky Strike for a fun girls night out.  We reserved our lane and got in an hour of bowling before moving over to some couches to lounge and chit chat.

Some of the girls headed home after that, but Dani, Adrienne, Sharon, and myself weren’t ready to call it a night yet so we moved on to another bar to continue the evening.  Eventually Dani and I were the only two remaining and continued the bar hopping finally making it home around 3 am.

Waking up on Saturday morning was a little rough, but after some coffee and a bagel I was more than ready for the next round of the weekend.  After a quick stop at 7-11 for a bottle of Andre, we were on our way to DC for our double header day of kickball games. Mimosas are to kickball as Gatorade is to running ;).

I’m having a great time I swear, I don’t know why I look so angry in that picture.  We won both our games, obviously, and then  moved on to The Bottom Line for our respective flip-cup match-ups.  We won both of those also.

Around 5:30 we managed to drag ourselves away from the bar and hopped on the metro to head on  out to RFK Stadium to meet-up with our guy friends and tailgate for the DC United game.  The game started at 7:30 so we had just enough time to enjoy a few beers in the parking lot before heading in and finding our seats.  All that really meant was cramming into our row and standing in the general vicinity of our seats, because apparently no one sits at soccer games.

oh, hello David Beckham


DC United managed to tie the game with only a few minutes left, so it was an exciting one to say the least.  We returned to the parking lot for a little post game tailgating before getting back on the metro for a longgggg ride home.  I’m actually not really sure what time we finally got back to the house, but I sent my last text message around 1:11 so I’m assuming I was sound asleep shortly after that.

It was a very, very fun Saturday, and definitely felt like the longest day in the history of the world.  Back to work today unfortunately, because it’s going to feel like summer out there.  It’s about time, although I’m starting to think we’re going to go straight from the 50s consistently to the 80s and 90s with no spring whatsoever.  Oh well, whatever.  How was everyone else’s weekend?
