Fun weekend. Friday I had dinner with Larissa (oh wait, I’ve already written about this, it feel familiar typing it) and then went to the pub. And everyone was there, so it was fun. Saturday was a loooong bike ride for Annie and me, involving many adventurous stops. First it was a a Rue coffee shop and a cool antiques store to get out of the rain. Next we made it to Audubon Park without anything bad happening. Rode around twice, saw some cops attending to a truck that had hit a tree. But cars can’t get into the park! How did this happen, we wondered. Never figured it out.
Went to Whole Foods, ate a snack, went to go and found out Annie’s bike had a flat tire. Called Nick, he and George came to fix it. (Well, George watched.) While we were waiting for them to arrive, we browsed around a bookstore and ran into Annie’s friend Lizbet. Very strange because we had hung out the night before, certainly weren’t expecting to see her on Magazine St!
Flat was fixed, Annie and I were off again, this time homeward. A few blocks on, a pop and a clang. This time Annie’s tire had well and truly popped. So we walked her bike to St Charles, where she caught the streetcar and I made my way home. Very brave of me, if I do say so myself.
Was exhausted afterwards. Did nothing but lay around, in preparation for yesterday’s 11 miler. Which went well for Peggy and I, but I am afraid Emily’s knee may prohibit her from doing the marathon. I will be very upset if that is true.
Last night was a football BBQ at the Williams’. Saints lost horrendously, almost humorously. Actually, was humorous to, since I don’t care about football. Especially since Norman Hand was traded.
Annie is coming to interview for a job in my department tomorrow. Yay!
