nice sunday, all in all ...

Stayed up into the wee hours of the morning, playing Neverwinter Nights with My Favorite Person, then chatting for a little bit on the phone. She went to nap, I was supposed to go to sleep, but I think a nap earlier had charged me up a bit. So I stayed up for a while longer, watching a DVD and some random television.

Ended up falling asleep around 5 a.m. ... only to wake up at 9:45 a.m., 15 minutes late, as it turned out. I had to meet my pare' and my godsons at the golf course. Luckily, I had showered the night before and just had to throw on some clothes and grab the golf bag before heading out. Made it with two minutes to spare before our tee time.

The day was a blast. But then again, any day playing golf is. And even more so when I get to do it with those two boys. They both had a lot of fun. A still is majorly juiced about the game. During lunch, he kept pestering his brother to hurry up because, as he put it, "I'm ready to play golf!" He's getting better every time. There were a couple of times he caught the ball cleanly and ended up smacking it 60 yards to 100 yards down the middle of the fairway. He's also been getting better at putting, sometimes making two putts that his father and I only wish we could have duplicated. LOL ... J still likes pressing the gas on the cart for me, but also is getting better at swinging the club -- he caught a couple of good shots himself.

I played pretty poorly, but it was mostly a tune-up for our big, annual Father's Day outing at Guam's nicest course next week. Lot of bragging, boasting and trash-talking going on. It's gonna be a great time out.

Anyway, I did manage to chip in on the first green, which enabled me to save bogey. Had a lot of bad holes in the middle of the round, though I did manage to break 100 (97) by shooting three pars on the last four holes -- and I had birdie putts that almost went in on two of those. Need to bring that game next week.

Came home in time to catch My Favorite Person still online and we played some more Neverwinter Nights for a couple of hours while chatting on the phone.

I did have to go into the office for a little bit to finish up some things, and managed to get a whole lot of stuff done in a relatively short time. Then it was to the grocery store for some, duh, groceries, then home again, home again, jiggety jig.

Played Neverwinter Nights for a little bit longer, just long enough to catch up to My Favorite Person in terms of levels and experience. Had a nice big salad for dinner, and healthy strawberry shortcake for dessert (because I used fresh strawberries).

Got to watch two of my favorite flicks tonight too — "Ocean's 11" and "The Fifth Element."

So, all in all, a pretty nice Sunday, no?

In pre-war Hagåtña, the capital city was divided up in what were basically little subdivisions, which were called "barrios," thanks in no small part to the centuries of Spanish colonization. The bombing of Hagåtña during the liberation of Guam changed all that, as much of the village was reduced to rubble. It was flattened out, with the rubble being pushed into the bay to form what is now the Paseo de Susanna, and the village was reconstructed, although along the lines of a stateside community -- nice perpendicular streets.

Shay said...

Sounds like a great Sunday to me - except the waking up early part.

Tho I had to get up early too for volunteering answering the distress lines >.<

I watched the fifth element last weekend! cool! It's one of my most favouritest movies ever!

ell said...

as they say, a bad day on the golf course is still better than any kind of day at work. but it sounds like you had a great day on the course, so all the better!

terry said...

sounds like a grand day...

and i'm with elle -- ocean's 12 sucked so much ass it's tainting my fondness for ocean's 11!

DZER said...

buttah: always check the man from the future's forecast! and you can love the original while hating the sequel(s)

shay: well, 9:45 a.m. isn't all that early to most folks ... LOL
