I Finally Got Some Sleep!

Finally some sleep! Last night we went out with a group of old friends. We were supposed to see a local band "Angie and the Car Wrecks" they cancelled. I ate some of the worst pizza I have ever had, pretty sure they commission a local home-ec class to do the cooking, it was thin, covered in I think tomato paste, govmt chee, and all sliced up on a brown plastic lunch tray. 

We had planned to stay on our friends boat so we wouldn't have to drive home, it's a beauty, 40 something feet of teak and fiberglass, it has a state room, 2 heads, a nice size salon, and the v-birth converts into a pointy queen size bed. If I owned a boat it would have to be one like that.

Since the band cancelled, and Shelton is a small and shrinking town with zero entertainment except the smokey casino, all ten of us went back to the boat for the rest of the evening. We aren't generally late night people, we go to bed at 10, but when we are with this particular group of friends we can stay up to greet the sun, we went to bed at 2:30. And I had the best nights sleep that I have had in a long time, I guess I can't say that 6 hours is a full night sleep, but it was continuous. I'm a little tired today, slightly hung over, and feeling a little swimmy like I'm still on the boat, it doesn't take long for me to develop sea legs, but it seems like it takes a day or two to get rid of them. 

Today is a lazy lay around the house and eat carbs kind of day. Our favorite day after food is a bowl of Velveeta mac and cheese with mashed potatoes and pork and beans. Toss in a couple slices of buttered bread, and you've got yourself a carbohydrate bomb fit for even the most hung over king.

  5. Velveeta mac and cheese? Oh no! Never mind, if it works it works. The boat sounds lovely except i hate boats and hate water even worse. I would have gone to sleep just so I didn't have to think about the water part. We drove to the snow yesterday. Really fun. The dogs loved it.

  6. Six hours of uninterrupted sleep? Ay, I envy ye. I get up at least every three hours to pee.

    And no don't suggest going to the doctor about this or Depends.

    I like to suffer. Gives me character, but not much rest. hee hee

  7. I've been to Shelton... twice. Both times it was because we were going to Bremerton. The first time it was nighttime and we stopped for an adult beverage at a workingpersons place on the main street (Hwy 3). The second time in was daylight and we could see. So we decided not to stop. It has to have been at least 15 years since we were there.

  9. I can't tell you how jealous I am of your fun. I love boats, and being drunk on boats. Also, sleeping solidly. It's so hard to do that now.

  11. You know that song "tiny dancer" I can't get the pirate smile out of my head after I hear that song. I'm a teeth snob, and pirate smile to me is like missing a bunch and maybe a gold one right in front. I don't get it, beaty eyes pirate smile married a music man. Not attractive at all.
    Quirks on the other hand, not a pirate, just plays one on tv.

    There's a map over on my blog I live somewhere near the middle. If I tell you much more it will bust my anonymity.
