Here is the rest of the random-ness of my weekend.
- Last week I had a houseguest. My brother in law’s brother was staying with me. He’s a personal trainer and was attending some kind of intense strength training clinic here in Columbus. I have a guest room and glad to put it to good use. I didn’t see him all that much during the week between a few late night work nights for me, his early mornings at the gym. I did want to spend a little time with him. He helped me with a few things around here and I wanted to thank him, plus, I like my brother in law a lot so wanted to make sure I took care of his little brother. Friday night, after a super long work week, I was determined to leave work at 3pm and I did. I told Mitch I would take him to this groovy “bar-cade” and the gourmet hot dog place next door. I did tell him we had to get there Golden Girls early because the barcade gets super busy. 16 Bit is the name of the place and it’s awesome. The perimeter is lined with old school video games and they are all free to play. He and I grabbed a beer and started on some classics – Frogger and Pac Man. He played some football game. Then together we took on an old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. Thanks to free and unlimited continues – we BEAT the GAME! How often can you say you beat an arcade game?! Awesome. Mitch declared the bar awesome due to the clientele and set up. Gourmet hot dogs at Dirty Franks and a scoop of Jeni’s ice cream and I can feel good that Mitch got a solid Columbus experience on his last night in town.
- I rented Divergent Friday night. We were home early (because we started early) and I love that Shailene Woodley. I read the book and thought it was only okay. I thought the movie was a good adaptation of the book, and just like the book – only okay. What was most interesting was the dream I had after watching it. Part of the book is training some of the characters to face their biggest fears, so they undergo these simulations that present their four biggest fears to them. I had a dream Friday night that presented two of my biggest fears to me. I woke up kind of panicked and in a really bad mood. I won’t reveal the two fears here – it was a really personal dream – just know that I’m sure it was motivated in some way by the movie.
- I went for a run Saturday morning with the Nationwide running group! Each month they host a run at a different MetroPark in Columbus. This time it was Sharon Woods park about 15 minutes from me and I went. It was mostly just an accountability exercise. I was the slowest runner there, but I got out and did it.
- I got some cute pictures of my niece this weekend! That kid is a doll.
So that’s it – a few other things in addition to the kitchen tiling. Ready for another super busy week at work!
