So life is pretty good right now. I'm feeling great about a lot of things. I had a really good weekend and spent time with some very cool people. Went bowling and had a long walk on the boardwalk with a friend on Friday, which was both awesome and a lot of fun. The worst part of the day was getting stuck in a monsoon at work. THAT was awful.

Saturday was an interesting day. I ran for about three miles and felt pretty good. I wound up having to drive into the city for a incredibly frightening proposition. My aunt called (mom's sister) and was panicking because she was trying to call my grandma (mom's side, duh). Apparently the phone was disconnected and she wasn't answering her cell. We tried a few times, but didn't get any results. I drove over there and started ringing the doorbell and knocking on the door, which lasted about 15 minutes. I called my mom to let her know that there wasn't an answer. At this point, I got that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.

Luckily, my grandma opened the door. She didn't realize I was knocking on her door, and she didn't want to answer it since she was in her robe. She didn't realize her phone was disconnected because it was on the same power strip as her computer, which pissed her off because it froze, so she unplugged the whole damn thing. I fixed everything and crisis averted. Hooray for no more dead grandparents!

Sunday was another softball game, which was great because we beat my old team (no hostility with this one, just fun), went out for some beer, and then went down to the Nautical Mile with the same friend from Friday. We walked around a bit, and then drove around looking for something to do since it got kind of chilly. We opted for Red Mango, but they were closing up, so I called an audible and we got slurpees from 7-11. It was good times all around.

Other than that, life is good. I'm quite content!

    Pete, what a heart attack! Glad it was something as simple as an unplugged surge protector.
