Ok, so i am in major pain, why you may ask? Let me explain, the bot and i were invited to join soccer sunday hosted by some friends of ours this weekend, and with our nervous courage tied up with our runners and threaded in the collars of our t-shirts, we headed off mid afternoon to the park ready to kick out little hearts out. We got there early and way in the distance I could see a group of people already deep into a very high energy soccer game, plus they were all dressed in major soccer gear...My immeadiate reaction was to bail, to turn around and go straight back home, though both kyle and I may have been ok soccer players back in the days when we were both naturally blonde, there was no way either of us were good enough now to keep up with the game we could see off in the distance. We sat for a second on a nearby bench to discuss our options, we decided on a lesiurely stroll up and down queen west, but just as we were about to leave, our friends Philip and Katie rode up on their bikes. Apparently the crazy soccer game way off in yonder was not our friends...phewf! In another few minutes the rest of the team showed up. Soon we were playing five on five, it was so awesome!! I am so glad that Kye and I did not have the chance to bail. I had a huge adrenaline high by the end of the game, and my love for kicking has been renewed. It was just the best way to spend an afternoon, lungs full of sweet air and sweat. Now today, that is another story. My whole body is in pain, it is screaming at me from every direction....ugggh. My stomach especially, apparently laughing your head off and running at the same time can totally strain all your stomach muscles...I am also having trouble climbing stairs...ouch...but frankly, it was all worth it...thumbs up for soccer sunday!
Now before sunday, was saturday, and the fantastic small press book fair. i took a few photo's before my camera batt. called it quits for the day. Best part of the day was Ms. Lindsay, who I got to spend the entire day beside. Also, all my sweet buddies who came out in support of small press, like richeous rue, and pretty petra, hottie heather, lady tara, and my monstering familly adam and bliss, oh and last but not least my sweetie pies amee and jenny, who took me out for some drinks and nachos afterwards. I also ran into my old friend alycia, who I had not seen in ages, which was a great surprise!
Anyhoo here are some of the hot shots:
