it’s been a long day, and a great one. it started early. matt woke up sometime around 5:30, and went downstairs to check if the luggage had ever arrived. it had!! by 6:00 we were both up and about. matt went to the early aikido class at twin city aikido. i thought about running, but didn’t. i did the crossword puzzles in the star tribune instead. 🙂
at 9, we were at mel’s, picking up a jacket that matt could borrow for the day on the bike. shortly thereafter, we went to visit dwain at work at motoprimo. what fun. we were there for about 3 hours, trying out stuff and chatting. then matt and i headed out, to run a couple of errands before we needed to go to the government center to meet j.r. for title transfer, etc.
riding around gets better minute by minute. oh, i really love this growly bike. mmmmm….
at three, we met todd in calhoun square, and went for vietnamese food and then … todd and i shopped for panties at urban outfitters. 🙂 heh heh… when girls get together…
and then i was off to cornerstone martial arts. matt went off with todd to shop for dvd’s, etc.
class was fun. i got there just before they started the silat class, which i had no intention of participating in, but wanted time to chat and reunite a bit. it turned out the silat class was more of a grappling class this time, but it was fun to watch. then it was time for kickboxing. yay! but i’m way out of shape. 3 rounds had me pretty much dying. really. it didn’t help that i was getting pretty tired by then. anyway, i’ve set up some private lessons in addition to the every day classes i’m going to attend. we’ll probably only do 2 private lessons a week, for these two weeks, but still… yay! it’s good to be back. my shoulder is giving me some trouble, but that’s what ibuprofen is for (food of the gods).
then i headed back to the house for a shower before meeting matt, todd, mel and dwain at motoprimo. we went over to lessa’s house (a racer chick dwain knows) to check out some vintage leathers. nothing suited me, but matt got this great red and black set. fantastic. it looks like it was made for him. shit, i should have gotten a picture. and dwain bought a motorcycle. i can’t remember what it was. an old, adorable yamaha. and then we headed over to the chatterbox pub, where we ate, and then ran into caly, cali, scott and a friend. yay!! caly has suggested a ride perhaps this weekend, so …
IF ANYONE WHO RIDES IS INTERESTED, WHICH WOULD WORK BETTER, SATURDAY OR SUNDAY?
i’m not yet sure which works better for us, to be honest. we need to finish planning things with matt’s family.
about 9:30, mel needed to go to hang out with jonny, todd had to go to drive back to winona (poor boy), and dwain had plans to meet up with nick at triple rock. so matt and i headed over there.
a pleasant night. a fantastic day.
considering all the plans we’ve got for tomorrow, i should probably be done with this and go to sleep.
