I had a FANTASTIC weekend!
What happened? I am trying to remember what we did on Friday. How is it that I had an awesome weekend and I can’t remember what I did on Friday? I think for dinner I made Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken for Ernie and me. Oh yeah, and then we went up to my loft and listened to Rubber Soul on vinyl. Sprawled on the floor, staring at the ceiling, listening to the songs go by, one building upon another, made me realize how I miss the concept of the “album.” Although I think that Michelle, ma belle is misplaced.
Saturday I made some amazing headway on my second eBook. In the evening, Ernie and I went ROLLERSKATING! The rollerskating was for Ernie’s friend’s surprise birthday party. They rented a roller rink for two hours and we skated around and around and around.
I have to admit I was worried. I kept fearing that I would fall, break my arms and find myself in a very bad situation. As luck would have it, I laced up my skates and it all came back to me. I didn’t fall once. In fact I had a great time. Don’t know if I will be joining any roller derby teams but I would definitely go back if nothing more than for exercise.
After rollerskating, we went to the Trestle Inn in Philadelphia where we drank whiskey sours and watched 60’s inspired go go dancers. Now, I don’t want you to get the wrong impression! The Trestle Inn is under new management and the old, pregnant strippers, riddled with bullet scars have been replaced with a much classier variety of go go dancer.
The women doing the go go dancing were beyond fantastic. I couldn’t take my eyes off them! I was surprised that their tip jars were empty so I remedied the situation by throwing in a couple dollars. They seemed very appreciative and when I finally did decide to go home, the dancers waved to me as I left.
Sunday we went for a walk at Tyler State Park and then in the evening we went to the Iron Hill Brewery in Blue Bell. Ernie had a gift certificate from Christmas that he wanted to use. After dinner we watched Bullitt with Steve McQueen.
And now I face yet another work week.
