paid vacation: day 29-31

what a wacky weekend. (weekends are my least favorite days, 'cause most other people have them off, too)

i went from motorcycle class to pole dancing to Shark watching with a lot of volleyball coaching mixed in.

friday was a beautiful day of gallivanting around as i pleased...until motorcycle school started at 4:45pm. and then i was in class for five hours - it was pretty interesting, as i know nothing about motorcycles - and went pretty quick. i was the second kid done with my test, scoring 49 out of 50! next weekend is the tough part, when we actually get on a bike. (i still don't know how i feel about all this, but knowledge is power)

saturday morning i was up early to get to Sacramento for Regionals. the girls played hard, but had an off day...and we lost a lot. sunday morning we lost some more...but that set us up to win two matches sunday afternoon! i guess it's ok to suck as long as you go out on a high note. ALCiS 14-1's in 2010 was a great group of gals - we had a fantastic time - and it's over. will i coach again? i have no idea...depends where my job is and what i'm doing. kinda crazy.

saturday night was boyfriend's sister's bachelorette party - what a hoot! a few of us were brave enough to go through a pole dancing class...which was quite comical for this white girl whose hips don't move. afterwards, we hit Asia SF. it's a drag queen show that's absolutely fantastic - and the food was pretty good, too! good times were had.

last night i chilled out with boyfriend & his roommate, watched the Sharks, ate some chinese food and crashed.

today has been the most perfect weather day ever! i went for a long run, biked all over SF, stopped by the TCHO chocolate factory to check that out (it's only open during weekdays, so this was my last chance), drove down Highway 1 and stopped at a dog beach to run around a bit, and ran some errands. now i'm gearing up to head to coffee and book club! woot!

tomorrow & wednesday round out my paid vacation with a quick trip to Redondo Beach. i'm looking forward to going "off the grid..."
