good times

So, the polls (okay, just one poll) closed yesterday, and only two of you voted. I'm disappointed in you. Low voter turnout is exactly what got us into trouble in this last election. And that's all I'm going to say.

I've been trying to start running again. Ideally, I'd like to be running a couple of miles every other day. Nothing too strenuous, just trying to keep my booty nice and juicy and my stomach flat. Not shooting for the moon here.

So I went running on Thursday morning because I had the day off, and I ended up running about two miles and walking another two. I'll take it. I did the same thing on Sunday, when the temperature was in the MID-90'S. I can't remember the last time I went running in that kind of heat.

Friday was part two of Zoo Day. Second Zoo Day, really. Anyway, we saw seals and penguins and bears and lions and bison and elephants and almost everything, really. A good time was had by all.

So Friday night, like I said, I went out to dinner with some of Dave's friends, most of whom are American girls just like me, and three of whom were named Jenny (not like me). Turns out they love Top Model and cheesy Youtube videos and we just laughed about everything for like three hours. Somehow my dinner cost me about 20 pesos, which is AWESOME,
because even though I ordered a salad, I went all vulture on the other girls' fries and also did everyone else a favour by finishing the piece of chocolate walnut cake with whipped cream and cinnamon on top that they didn't like. Which leads me to doubt if they really are that much like me after all, because seriously, who would pass up such a DELICIOUS piece of cake?! Seriously. It was amazing.

AND I was talking with one of the girls about where she lived and when I heard she was from Colorado I mentioned that I'd only been there for a softball tournament and she was like, "No way?! I'm looking into softball leagues here!" and I was like, "OMG!" So now we're going to start a softball legacy. Awesome.

Softball legacy.........what have I been telling you? GREAT idea! You can be on the ground floor of the future Argentinian team.
Yes, anyone who passes up chocolate cake like that just is not quite right!
90 degrees..........so how is that "endless summer" sounding to you now?
