Yup, I must be back in good ol' Allentown, PA.
My time in Sunbury was awesome, thanks to my amazing family and friends. This might've been the best Valentine's Day I've ever had. I went for a little bonding time/retail therapy with my mom, and she bought me a super cool V-day gift. I don't wanna say what it is, since I don't think she gave either of my brothers anything, but it has the letter i in it, as well as the letters p-o-d. And the word "touch" might be in there, too. It can only mean one thing, really: Clearly, I am the favorite child. And all this time we thought Eben was the favorite. HA! Suck it, brothers!!
After the shopping, I met up with an old friend that I hadn't seen since high school and we went for some grub. Being Valentine's Day, we decided to go to the most romantic of places in Central PA - The Super Chinese Buffet. Mostly, I ate about a zillion tons of lo mein while he made fun of all the trouble I got us in back in high school. He kept using the word "us," but as I recall I was the only one sitting my ass in detention. In all fairness, though, he did let me copy his Algebra II homework almost everyday, so I guess we're equal. After we were done talking crap about high school we moved on to lots of other topics and it turned out to be a pretty good afternoon.
After all that lo mein I was in need of a nap, so I slept for a bit, read for a bit, and then had dinner with my parents. After that I headed over to my cousin Amy's house and the rest of the night was spent there and at a local bar with her and another cousin, Angie, having a few drinks and giggling like school girls and talking about all kinds of stuff. Angie married into my family (SUCKER!!!) so during the course of the conversation I learned all kinds of interesting things about my cousin Eric!!
And now, I'm back in The Lehigh Valley! Haven't done much running on this trip, but tomorrow night is a special LVH3 pub crawl in honor of yours truly. Starts at 6 (I think) at Jabber Jaws in Allentown, so y'all should stop on by! Email me for deets if you need them. Hashing doesn't really count as exercise, but I'll be hiking with Cassidy for a bit during the day so I guess that's better than nothing.
Updates and pics re: midget wrestling and other bits of ridiculousness are coming, I promise!
