Weekend Recap

I'm back from a half-supercharged and half-laidback weekend. Saturday morning, I woke up really early to take Tito Monching to the airport - he is in Paris right now, and I turn green with envy whenever I think about it. I got back around 5:00 and caught a couple more hours of sleep, and then I bounced right off the bed: Greg, Mike and I had made plans to go climbing in Malibu again. Mike had to cancel though, due to an emergency, so it was just me and Greg. We had brunch then went up to Malibu, where I got "bullied" into doing a 5.11b. And the best thing was, I made it - three times! Greg and I simply took turns on it, as if doing laps on a pool. It became easier and easier after every try, so I was all pumped up about it. Here are a few pictures from this trip:






And here are the rest of the pictures.

When I got home, I took a quick shower and then it was time to watch Sin City with Marc. We loved it! The way they shot the movie was so cool, we both loved the graphics and the lighting effects. With all that gun action and violence though, I think I may have mangled parts of Marc's arm, shoulder and/or fingers. I was so jittery that I had to keep grabbing him throughout the movie.

Sunday, we took our books to the Palisades Park and did some reading there, then we went on my quest for the ever-elusive dark chocolate M&Ms. We drove all the way down to the Target in Marina del Rey, and......... nothing. There was screaming in my head when we discovered they didn't have it. Is this an exclusive Orange County thing?!?!?!?! Marc's right - we haven't seen it advertised anywhere up here. Darn it!

But all in all a good weekend. I need to catch up on sleep though. Off to bed I go!

These pics are much better. You could lose the old men with no shirts! Who wants to see that. But at least there aren't any We-Ho guys in these ones. And how about showing more of that Asian girl in green. The last pics were good when she was posing with her dad, but how about some shots of her looking at the camera when she's in action?

Climbing is super addictive, and I'm always trying to get people to try it. It's a great workout too, especially for your core and your upper body.
