the others left around 11:30 and my husband and i stuck around. we shook our groove thangs, salsa’d, cha cha’d, boogied and made out on the dance floor. we’re pretty lucky to have found each other – and to be comfortable enough with each other to dance like complete fools and not even care – we just appreciate and love each other that much more for being able to just be who we are. mush mush mush sorry laura :p
So we started off the morning walking to the store, the market, then making a breakfast and watching Cubs vs Sox – which was a total snooze-fest UNTIL john turned on the World Baseball Classic. OH BOY! seriously, this is the one of the only times i’ve ever appreciated the skill, talent, sportsmanship, athletic ability and actual excitement that this game has. not to mention the extremly fun time the fans are having in the stands – music, dancing– i wanna salsa!
it took watching Dominican Republic vs Cuba (and we saw another game the other day too) combined with catching a Red Sox game at Fenway in 2003, to realize that just maybe… MAYBE… there could be more to baseball that i just haven’t discovered yet — it’s worth a shot. the final on monday (winner of Korea/Japan vs winner of Domincan Rep/Cuba) be sure to catch it on sportsnet at 6pm 🙂
they cut down trees outside my house the other day. poor john was planning on doing a podcast but i guess there was a lil background noise :p but… now when i sit at my puter i can see the street and the alley and yeah… so not much left for tree cover… who wants to see us walk around the apartment all day buck naked anyway eh? bah.
so we’re going to have to make do with being in the city – not that it’s a bad city, actually it’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend. lots and lots going on around town. events, st. patrick’s day things, celtic fest things, new movies out and YAY next week the kiddies are all back in school!
this day also reminds me of being in high school, livia did that irish dancing (before the whole riverdance craze) and often competed and often won medals. she would bring them in on st. patrick’s day and we’d wear her medals as necklaces and pins. i think i still have some, somewhere, kicking around my parents’ house.
(and yeah, i dont own any green shirts, i had to improvise…. :p)
