Great Day

The morning got off to a slow start: I went to the gym and didn't have much energy in my muscles, so had to cut my workout short. I then headed home to get some work in before going to the New Year's Eve party for my department.

I got a little caught up in the project I was working on (the eXist one), and showed up late to the get-together at Redbones. From there, the department went candlepin bowling. None of us was particularly good--especially not me. (My high score was 70, though I did knock down all the pins on one ball...after guttering the first two of the set...)

As we were walking out after playing three games, Katie mentioned she was going for a manicure/pedicure and asked if I wanted to join. Of course I did =) We had a great time relaxing in the chairs, talking, and getting really tacky colors put on our toes (well, that's just me...she has better taste).

After a brief stop at Trader Joe's, she dropped me at home. I am now heading out to Warren Tavern (sorry, Matti, pre-existing plans...I hope the Beerworks treats y'all well...)

Your department celebrated NYE today??

One legacy of the Northeast I was happy to leave behind: candlepin bowling. I like regular bowling so much more...

Regular is much better at giving one a sense of satisfaction. I like it much more than candlepin as well.
