I know. I've been a bad blogger. And I've got a ton to tell all of you (teaser)! I want to talk about training plans. And how Diet Coke randomly sent me a free refrigerator. (awesome - Life goal of getting free stuff from blog achieved).
But before all of this, I'll just tell ya why I haven't been writing this weekend. I've been par-taying up a storm with Anthony. My taste senses have gotten a workout even if my running legs haven't!
Rae's Diner in LA.
Why is this cool?
It's delicious old school diner food (rare in LA. biscuits from heaven.). Also, it's the diner featured in the movie True Romance AND was on the album cover of an Elton John album (love him).
Next? We wandered randomly around the Santa Monica pier. This is where I ran my totally awful 5k a couple weeks back. It's a lot more fun to go there when it's the afternoon and you're hanging out at the beach rather than wondering why the heck there are no mile markers in you race :).
It was a beautiful day. Even for southern California, it was awesome. We drank some beer and watched the crazy people on the pier impersonate Batman and Michael Jackson.
And then we went to Jiraffe for dinner. Yes, spelled with a "J". More pretentious that way! Pricey but omg omg delicious. And this:
It's even got fruit in it. Healthy, no?
Despite what you might think from the blog, I swear I'm not a big drinker. =) Mostly because I'd rather eat or drink stuff that tastes good. And IMO most alcohol tastes subpar when compared with normal food or orange juice. How dudes drink scotch and stuff is beyond me.
Do you actually like the taste of beer / wine / moonshine ?
Have you tried any of the new stuff from Jamba Juice? (fro-yo, breakfast...random)
Hope UR weekend was rockin'!
