So today sucks.

Okay, not really. I've been busy all day and it's gone quick.

But today sucks because it wasn't part of the fabulous weekend I just had.

I flew down to Dallas Friday morning. rosepurr is there on an extended assignment for her job. I took the day off. I've never been to Dallas before, but the whole time I kept wondering if I'd see J.R. while I hummed the theme song:



We weren't really into downtown Dallas, though. We were in this swanky hotel. We enjoyed 70 degree temperatures and drinks on the 25th floor watching the sun set and the skyline come to light while enjoying a Bloody Mary (her) and Scotch (me).

The hotel has, I believe, 6 different restaurants and numerous shops right in it so there was really no need to actually leave. In fact, since neither one of us had a car there, we would have had to get a cab. So we didn't leave. We lounged about our room, reading and watching TV (including the Oscars). We had sushi and greasy burgers and more drinks. We snuggled.

In fact, we only left the hotel once. We met up with some old friends and made our way to the Dallas Museum of Art. Currently they have the King Tut exhibit. It was awesome, full of learning goodness.

Yesterday I flew back home. The plane rides to and fro were uneventful. I came home to very affectionate kittens and quiet. I lay on the couch reading and then napping (I had to get up at 5 to catch my flight - did you realize there's a 5 in the morning now? What evil bastard came up with that idea?) and then more reading.

Rich food, drinks, and laying about with books and sweetie makes for a wonderful weekend.

Getting up this morning, forcing myself to go running and then coming in to work provided a clear demarcation that the weekend was over.

Sigh.

Okay, Jim, quite a few of your icon and rosepurr's with you in them show a much larger old you than the current version. What's your secret?

Thanks for noticing.

There is no secret, really. When rosepurr and I lived in separate cities, I had too much time on my hands. So I counted calories and exercised. I used Sparkpeople which helped a lot.
