October 22, 2005 – Never drinking again

Hurting…. badly…. hangover… drinking = bad. There have been way too many parties lately, and I have been enjoying them far too much. I am officially taking a break from parties for a few weeks to recover.

One of my roommates also enjoyed himself a little too much last night, causing him to sleep through his alarm and several phone calls attempting to wake him up. After several attempts to contact Azeroth directly, the NOVA staff called me to ask if he was still at home. It took me a few minutes of loud knocking on his door to get him to wake up. I told him that it was 10:20 and he was late for work. He literally jumped out of his bed.

If you have never seen someone jump out of bed from a deep sleep before, it is actually pretty entertaining. It’s more impressive considering he was sleeping on a futon on the floor. I did feel badly for him (and the student whose lesson was cancelled), but at the same time I could appreciate the humour in his reaction.

I spent the rest of the day recovering and looking forward to a few weeks with no beer.

December 4, 2004 – Biking in the rain

This morning I slept through my alarm, and woke up in a panic without much time to get ready. I managed to get showered, shaved, and dressed in about 20 minutes and then rode my bike like a crazy person to catch my train and get to work on time.

After work it was pouring rain. This was my first time to attempt to ride home in the rain. I rode my bike on a narrow, busy street while attempting to hold an umbrella. My bike light wasn’t working, I wasn’t wearing a helmet, and despite the umbrella my glasses kept getting wet. Looking back, it wasn’t the smartest decision to try to ride my bike under those conditions.

I survived the ride home and rewarded myself by watching the K-1 Grand Prix on TV with my roommates. For those who don’t know, K-1 is a kickboxing based sport which has become incredibly popular in Japan. The Grand Prix is a one night tournament, with each fight having 3 rounds of 3 minutes each. K-1 boasts an 80% KO rate. Even if you know nothing about kickboxing, it’s easy to figure out what’s going on and to enjoy the show.
