had a great weekend up in ARkansas, back in my college town where a bunch of friends still live. left right after work to get a quick haircut before the drive up there.
did a home tour thing Frday night and then yesterday morning spent some time playing with my best bud J's two little girls and then finally we got 'em down for a nap and left mom home with his baby son while we skipped out to Bentonville to shop at Academy sports and the Target. even in B-ville I ran into a few different people I know from my college town. ha lots of fun and J and I caught up talking the whole way there and back about our jobs and work and the economy and his inlaws and my garden. rained most of the day
I got back to my married buddies' place C and S. and talked to their 2 boys some and laid on the couch and chilled, left to get some pizza to go, came back we all ate, then got ready for the Christmas party over at a another friend's place. the parade was delayed until SUnday night due to rain. alas... but the party was tons of fun. some new couple there I hadn't met before but knew of from mutual friends, and this one guy I forgot played rugby at our college was there, he's been widowed for a year now and doing better, his daughter and her college bf were there also. I hadn't realized he was an MK in Kenya at the same school as our host's wife. So that gave me a whole new perspective. We sat around playing games like Encore where you guess the word from verbal clues and motions. we played 3 whole rounds. Next was Guesstures which is basically just Charades, and that didnt' last long 'cause after a while it was 12 midnight and the families were all ready to head out, well me too actually. came back this morning and have gotten laundry done and I'm setting aside all the things I want to pack for NYC trip this week. hope all had a good weekend.
I need to ASK any one you NYC guys, for 3 people should I go ahead and take the airport bus from LGA to manhattan or is a taxi cheaper or is it pretty much the same. when I travel alone I just take the bus for $15, or $20 to Newark. but I wasn't sure with 3 of us why not take a taxi if it's any cheaper that $45. cheers for any response on that. :)
