A Wonderful Saturday

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

Once a week is a day called Saturday. Unlike Sunday, it is my favorite day of the weekend. Recently cast free from the immediate concerns workday, I wake excited by limitless possibility. This Saturday was no different.

A quick list of activities from the day I just mentioned:

  • Guitar practice on the uncomfortable gray couch.
  • J. cutting my hair on the balcony.
  • Research for work. It’s okay because it only involves surfing the web.
  • Brunch with A. and D. at Mesa. Decent food and a good second floor porch. Pancakes are better at Azul.
  • Quick ride home to get swimsuits.
  • A few hours of swimming at a coworker’s pool.
  • Kicking the feather poolside.
  • Getting an ice-cold bubble tea and pastries.
  • Playing some small, solid games of bike polo. Adopting the new name “Splinter” because of my wooden, headless mallet.
  • Sitting and reading with iced coffee at a mall while A. and J. shopped for books.
  • Hot pot dinner.
  • Showering.
  • Minecraft.
  • Gattaca.
  • Snuggling.
  • Solid sleep.

From 11:30AM-11PM was mostly solid exercise, with two meal breaks. My body feels sore today, and I have to work. It’s a good excuse to stay inside.
