Tennis and tequila

Yea, yea, I know. I didn't post anything yesterday. I'm a bad blogger. But I feel no guilt about that whatsoever. I spent my afternoon with a friend at the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells. We watched some tennis (Andy Roddick came damn close to losing his match, but mounted an amazing comeback to survive), watched some people (some women should not wear belly shirts, and some men should not walk around without shirts) got some sun.

I've gone to at least one opening weekend match of this tournament every year I've been here. I think I have anyway. I'm getting old, the memory fades. But this year I was at least smart enough to put on the sunscreen before I left. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and I for once do not look like a lobster after an afternoon at the tennis stadium.

After the tennis match, I returned home for a shower so I could meet another friend for dinner. I have to say, something must be out of whack with the cosmos or something. Two social engagements in one day? What the fuck? Never happens people.

It was a great day. Very fun, spent with two of my favorite people, and several large margaritas. By the way, if you are ever in the Palm Springs area, I highly recommend the Cadillac margarita, on the rocks, at
Las Casuelas Nuevas in Rancho Mirage. The shrimp fajitas were good too, but after I couple of those margaritas I might not have known or cared if they weren't good.

All it all, it was a good day
NOT to get married! Tennis, talk and tequila! Too much fun.

It's another nice day, and I'm determined to enjoy more of this weekend before I have to settle into my chores.

Where'd I put that bottle of tequila?

Glad you had a good day. Sitting in the sun watching hot sweety men play tennis sounds nice. I hope my belly shirt would pass! You were not shirtless were you? Oh and I spent time with you yesterday, remember? I am you third favorite person right? LOL

Technically, we spent most of our time together today. But I didn't think you would want me telling people about that! But I can if you like. And you are absolutely one of my favorite people, perhaps even higher than three. But you don't need to know that.

Post away honey!

Brat said...

Oh, and stay away from the tequila, I hear it makes you do strange things! Not me of course, I would never drink it!

The G-man said...

Let's see. Where did I file those IMs again?

Brat said...

I thought we were going to remote access tonight. Let's hook up, I need to find something on your computer.

I'm glad you had a good day today, and yesterday G-man! I have to say, I'm having a good time reading you and Brat together. although I'm waiting for THE posts about the two of yours face to face meeting. Are the two of you going to let readers know, when that will be??? :-)

Brat said...

Not soon enough!

The G-man said...

Not soon enough is right.

Beyond that, talking about something you want to have happen before it does seems like a recipe to jinx it. So, I'm not going there. I will not truly believe it will happen until I can see the whites of her eyes... assuming of course that Brat has eyes.

I knew there was something I hadn't asked over the last 7 years.

Bad blogger?!? For not posting YESTERDAY?!? Holy crap, Batman! What must you think of me and my recent stint of Monday-only posting?

The G-man said...

Zam, we've been meaning to talk to you. Have you ever heard of an intervention?

There is help, but first you have to be willing to ask for it. Admit you are a binge blogger. That's the first step.
