on the road again...again

Another airport post. Ho hum. Second nature by now - this is my fifth flight in the past three weeks. Once I get home, I get to go five weeks without flying. Or packing a suitcase. How exciting!

Went to a friend's wedding in Denver this weekend. I really like Denver. Spent a few summers here. The city's got a great vibe, and I have more friends here than I think. I'd jump at an opportunity to do some work out here - anybody got anything?

The wedding was a lot of fun - I met the coolest woman ever. The bride (my old friend) had been telling me for years that I needed to meet this lady - "Have I got a girl for you! You'll love her!" And, of course, I did love her. I hate it when my friends are right. Another reason to work out here, right?

Also got a chance to hang out with Little Miss Runner Pants this weekend - she was in town visiting an old friend. We went to a "dueling piano bar", which is much more fun than it sounds, and then braved drunken crowds and horny drunk guys (her friend gave out her number twice in five minutes, and we also managed to get some free fries) at a diner.

I drank copious amounts of alcohol on both nights and got about 11 total hours of sleep. So I'd call that a successful weekend.

A handful of random thoughts:

- Thanks much for the kind words of support. I'm no longer guilt-wracked, though I do feel badly. The decision was made for the right reasons, and I try to remind myself of that whenever I think that I'm a jerk.

- Is my football team star-crossed or what? Big Ben has to get his appendix out and is going to miss two games. Crazy. Even though they won the whole shebang last year, I still live and die with this team. Incredible.

- Speaking of football, I watched three episodes of "Two A Days" on MTV yesterday while I was waiting to get pretty for the wedding (I was trying to nap, but it just didn't happen). I highly recommend it. You get the inside look at high school football, plus all of the high school are-you-looking-at-my-boyfriend drama. I'm totally hooked. Just when I think MTV is starting to pass me by...

- My birthday is coming up, and I'm looking for a fun group activity that won't cost an arm and a leg, and also facilitates conversation. Any ideas? Is bowling still considered fun?

I love Two-A-Days, although I only saw the opening episode. I thought it was really good.

hi rover...i have a birthday too...i should have know you were a fellow virgo!

fun group activity...treasure hunts are still fun but then the group has to split up...

playing pool and darts in a dive bar is still one of my favorites, esp. if you don't go very often

adults goofing off at a water park mid-week is great too

have a good one!

i second the karaoke... but only if your friends are into it. some people REALLY don't like to sing, whether they are good or not.

Happy Birthday and remember, things will click when they're meant to be.

Yeah...I'm not a karaoke person, at all, unless I've drunk my body weight in alcohol. Which is a lot more than you'd think, looking at me.

I think Bella's dive bar plan might work best - there's a couple in the city that give you free pizza, which is always nice.
