I'm not sleepy anymore! It's pretty nice! This weekend, though, was another story.
I got home from work on Friday around 4:30, went to bed, and napped for an hour. Scott came over for dinner, and then we went over to Aaron's for a little party. Giles convinced us to play Mafia, which was darn fun. I made a terrible mafia member, though. Just couldn't keep a straight face.
We started off Saturday with a wonderful batch of pumpkin pancakes, and then Paul picked me up for our first winter league game of the season. I'm playing with "Minimum Flair", and we won 15-4. We played a little pickup afterwards, but I was beat. Running didn't feel good. Most of the team went out for lunch in Reston, and then... Paul and Eli and I went to Dairy Queen! I had a chocolate-dipped strawberry Blizzard. The consistency wasn't quite right, but the experience was sublime in every other respect.
Paul and me, in our BRDM and DQ hoodies.
I got home around 5, which gave me ample time to shower before A Prairie Home Companion came on. Stayed in the rest of the night - didn't have enough energy to do much besides lie on the futon.
I got about 7 hours of sleep, woke up to find another beautiful pumpkin pancake breakfast waiting for me. Fueled up, headed down to the polo fields, played 3 points and then sat down because I was tired. It wasn't just that my body was still waking up... it was more that my mind was all confused, the way it gets at the end of a tournament day or at the end of a Gunston night. I just can't see the field clearly, can't cut... it's not fun. So I sat on the sideline for 30 or 40 minutes hoping I'd wake up, but I just kept lusting after my flannel sheets. So I headed back up the hill and napped for 2 hours. That gave me enough energy to head down to Armand's for dinner (a going-away event, sadly. But he'll be back in a few months, happily.). Bon voyage Armand!
Fun stuff this week - My sister arrives tonight! TDP events tonight and Wednesday. Ultimate on Tuesday and Thursday, as always. I'd better be healthy enough to play!!
Enough for now. I have to scrub 2 databases for BLS dates. Gross.
