school nights

Say Uncle, 19?? Mike is bottom right
I don't drink on school nights.  I don't go to school, you know what I mean right?   I hate hangovers and having them on a work day is the worst.  I will make the odd exception though and so when my awesome friend Mike was in town on Monday and he hung out at my place of course we had a couple of drinks (bottles of wine, yup THREE of them, oh god my head).  How could I pass up the chance to spend Valentines Day with one of my favourite boys in the world?

I have known him for many many years, I met him when he was just a punk kid in a rock band.  He moved to California more than 20 years ago but we have kept in touch.

Today he's got a full time job, he doesn't play music anymore, that makes me sad but he does do comedy.  One day I'm going to go see his act cause I know how funny he is off stage. 

Say Uncle 2009 Mike is on the left
He was back again last night.  He was the one that told me about the Vinturi and so we decided to test it out.  Of course we had to try it out on 3 more bottles of wine.  OH MY G*D that thing rocks!!  

He is a bad influence all around and once again I found myself on pressing the 'buy' button.  I am going to hide my iPad when he's back in town.

His being over at the last minute meant no trainer ride for me, I didn't want to spill red wine on my white bike so I'm starting back this weekend, come hell or high water.   and now that Mike is leaving town I can go back to not drinking on school nights.

That's all I got...

getting those types of nights helps the training keep going in my mind. Can't keep the 100% training mindset all the time. That is too hard to keep up.

And keeping up with friends is important. Glad you got to spend time with Mike.

Hopefully in 20 years you will write something like this about me but we will have met each other by then I hope.

Hi Julie, yes I was on the wagon for a month so I was in the mood for some drinks. Thankfully it wasn't way over the top.
