My attack of whatever the fuck that was on Thursday seems to be pretty much a flash in the pan, because I felt way better on Friday. My workout went well, though I'm thinking I'm going to need to step things up soon. More on that in a bit.

Dinner was takeout from Crisp n' Juicy which is a rotisserie chicken place that makes REALLY good rotisserie chicken. We basically munched on that, drank wine, and watched Raiders of the Lost Ark. (Well, I did. Lisa fell asleep about a third of the way in to the movie.) I hadn't seen it in some time, but watching it Friday, it reminded me of a few things.

1. Harrison Ford has always been my go-to action hero. There's just something about him that works in those kinds of movies. Aside from the fact that I've always wanted to look like him, there's a humor to him that is unique to him.

2. Marion Ravenwood became more or less the model for the type of woman I've always been attracted to. She's strong, independent, badass, and must have one very good liquor distributor to have such a well stocked bar in Nepal. What I particularly liked about her is that she has a unique beauty. It's not homogenized or "perfect" but unique only to her. Now granted, I had a crush on Karen Allen ever since Animal House and East of Eden, but this role, for me, just made her all the more attractive.

3. Steven Spielberg really does know how to make a well shot movie.

Lisa also got a delivery that was her valentine's day present to me: Cole Haan shoes. They look pretty good.

Saturday, we had lunch with Lisa's nephews Mike, Adam, and Mike's girlfriend. It was very pleasant. The boys have become MMA fighters and are now basically solid muscle. The transformation is kind of astounding. I think that some of their training is a little extreme and unhealthy (dehydrating to shed pounds for a weigh in is highly troubling to me) but they seem to be doing well.

Saturday night, we went to see the Capitals play again. We didn't go out to dinner before hand, but rather picked up sandwiches at a place in Verizon that Jose Andres opened up as a "test kitchen". I had a pork belly blt that I actually didn't like all that much. The pork belly was too dry for me, and the bun was so thick that it's about all I tasted. Oh well...that's the first time I've ever been able to say that about anything at a Jose Andres restaurant, so...

After the game, we went straight home and watched Saturday Night Live. It's a rare occasion that we actually watch it live, as we're usually asleep by the time it comes on. (Yes, I know, we're old.) It was a hoot, as usual.

Sunday was kind of sedate. I went to the gym after the farmer's market. If I count forward from Monday, that means that I managed to get 5 workouts in a week under my belt. Sadly, that's not likely to happen this week, as we're going to Deep Creek Lake on Friday, but maybe I can get a run or two in while I'm there. Or at least a few push ups.

Speaking of running, I'm thinking that I'm going to need to start doing more running, now that I've established something of a routine. Weight loss is currently kind of stagnant, but I'm not worried. My legs are getting some reasonably good definition, and I'm feeling a difference in energy levels.

Tomorrow, Valentine's day. We're not doing anything particularly fancy. I had in mind something for Valentine's day, but funding is an issue. However, I should be able to get it by our anniversary. It'll be a David Yurman bracelet. In the mean time, I guess I'll get flowers or something like that.

So yeah, Thursday...not sure where that came from, but it passed pretty quickly.
