No sail tonight!

We got rained out. Blah. The radar showed it coming so we cancelled the sail. Charlie and David stopped by and invited me over to Charlie's girlfriend Alex's house (David's sister's house) (PS David and Alex are from Ft. Worth, small world.) So they left in the jeep and I said I would meet them there because I found Judy's bike finally today so I have wheels. I finished my beer and went to hop on the bike when..... crash!!! Rain and thunder!!!!! I ran back into the house. Now I am sittin here.... alone. But the radar shows that its just a band passing quickly so I should be able to get out of here pretty soon.

In other news, the M/Y Rena that was interested in me as a freelance stew pulled into the schooner wharf today so I went over and introduced myself. Apparently the stew they hired instead of me turned out to be a nut case and they fired her right away. They were nice. They will be here for a few days then back to West Palm Beach where they live. They can have West Palm. Bleh.

I went out with the Liberty Clipper crew last night and sang karaoke for the first time in forever. I hate karaoke but we had been drinking boat beers for some time before then and they convinced me to do it. They all just stood there like "where the hell did that come from" when I sang. LOL

Then I called it a night and stayed up late at my house alone emailing and reading. Charlie stayed at Alex's house for the first time in quite a few days. He said he never stays here but I guess he just likes to hang out with me now that I'm back. :)

So, I played Wii last night for the first time.... I am addicted. It's the most fun thing ever!!!!!
Charlie has a Wii and I had never even considered playing it but we played it at the Lazy Gecko last night and by the time we were all finished bowling and playing baseball we were all covered in sweat! I won every bowling match! I never win video games. It rocked.

Ok... looks like the rain is stopping. gotta go!

p.s. did I mention that Charlie and I always joke about being cousins because his name is Charlie Nelson and Nelson is my mom's maiden name and he is from Texas too? Well his parents came to visit last week and I got to talking to his Dad and guess what???? He went to Permian High School.... in Odessa.... Where my Mom and Dad are from....

so.... truly.... we probably are related.

Damn I am classy.
