I’m beat. Have you ever done so much in a 24 hour period that you couldn’t believe you were still awake? I just went through that, and Labor Day weekend has only just begun!
I haven’t really played video games in many years. About ten years ago I discovered they were taking over my life and I thought I would take my life back. Rarely do I regret that choice. Still, I really enjoy the occassional game of StarCraft with Mookee. Last night I went to play Counter-Strike with a couple coworkers in Berkeley; Jerome, Redge, James, Jay, Mitsuko and Peter. The drive over was mildly nostalgic, but once we started playing I couldn’t help but have fun. Man, I suck, but it is a blast to manage to sneak up on one of the more experienced players and frag him.
I got home from Counter-Striking at about 2AM after passing through a sobriety test in Berkeley. I hadn’t had a drop of alcohol to drink because I’d seen them setting up the checkpoint on University when I drove in. I was surprised at how many people they had caught. Do these people not have eyes?
I finally fell asleep at 4AM or so. Yeah, I’m still having a bit of insomnia. It’s getting better. I still didn’t get much sleep, though, because today was another surfing day! I got out of the house and picked people up kind of late, and then dealt with the horrific traffic as everyone and their little dog, Toto, seem to be out figuring out how to deal with the Bay Bridge being shut down this weekend.
We finally go out and in the water. I gave a quick lesson to Hiromi. I’m mildly jealous of her because on her first day she managed to stand up. *sigh* Anyways, the waves were weak and shallow and I didn’t have a good time surfing, but I loved just being out in the water, in the sun, and being wet. It also gave me a chance to practicestanding on my board in still water. My record is only about 5 seconds; it’s harder to do than you’d think!
However, I also knew I had to be back in the City to meet my CEO for a show at 8PM. I left Bolinas at 6:15PM, drove like a madman, dropped folks off, got home, showered, changed, and managed to get to Curran Theater just in time to meet Fukuhara-san for the final showing of A Chorus Line. I’d never seen it; it was quite good!
After the show we got some sushi at a local restaurant, drank some sake, and then I went home. Now I’m sitting on the couch, typing, wondering what why the hell my eyes are managing to stay open of their own accord. Sadly, I know I’ll still be up for at least another hour.
It’s been a good Labor Day weekend so far. What have you been up to?
