First off, sorry to have disappointed so many of you last friday! I too wish it would have been true, but just a little more time would make it better. 🙂 Soon enough though.
So I’m sure you can see from the lack of updates, both Gwendolyn and I have been pretty busy, both at work and at home. I guess the biggest highlight would have been our motorcycle ride out to map(Lake Livingston|livingston, texas). We originally planned on going out there for a poker run. For those cage drivers out there, a poker run, is normally a charity event, where a bunch of bikers meet up and are given a map to a few key locations. You then go to these locations and receive a playing card. When you arrive at the last pit stop, you will then have a poker hand, and whoever wins, gets a prize. Its just a nice way to spend a day riding. However for us, we went to the meeting place, but found no one there! Now this could all be blamed on me, as I was the one that saw the flyer and wrote down all the info. We made the best of it though, and headed home going the back way through Coldspring and other back roads. Along the way we came across a few groups of at least 20 bikes each. Made us wonder if they were part of the poker run that we couldn’t find. We stopped in Coldspring again, and ate at The Hop. We all enjoyed shakes and floats and then headed on our way. I must make a mental note, to try the onion rings there, as they come highly recommended! Instead of going straight home, we decided to make another stop, and visit my dads cousin Sarah Jane, who lives out in the Woodlands. I think Gwendolyn fell in love with her house and that area.
Once we were finally home, we had to take a nap and unwind after a long day of riding. I think we were out for a good 6 hours. Definitely a long day. After a nice nap, we decided to watch some Scrubs. This activity was short-lived, however, because while we were on our second episode, all the power went out in the entire neighborhood. Then, the firetrucks showed up in front of my apartment. So we went out to investigate and make sure the place was not on fire. As it turns out, some tree branches fell onto the powerlines and caused all the commotion. So with no phones, no lights, no motocars (okay not quite…) we decided to get out of the house and go see imdb(Sin City). The movie just looked amazing. I’m not sure how much Gwendolyn liked it due to the violence, but I loved it.
This weekends plans, are partly up in the air. My cousin Veronica is coming into town with her husband, and a newborn girl. We’re going to my parents tonight to visit. Tomorrow night we might baby sit for them as they go to the astros/cincinnati reds game. Hopefully sunday will be spent with a little R&R.
Okay now you guys should be all caught up! 🙂
