Stress free Saturday

The weather the past few days have been, for lack of a better word, amazing. I have been traveling so much lately, I spent the day doing exactly what I’ve been wanting to do for weeks now – catching up with friends. Mary Beth and I brunched at the Elite Cafe in Pac Heights. I definitely see myself becoming a regular there. The atmosphere is so retro (think old school New York with high-backed booths) and the food is just as appealing. Their biscuits literally melted in my mouth.

When you start picking jeans based on their elasticity, you know it’s time to exercise again. I nearly had an asthma attack on my run – that’s how out of shape I am. I could practically feel the sludge churning in me. I have no way to explain it other than: it felt like unclogging a backed up drain. Yeah, it felt just as attractive as it sounds.

Now it’s off to dinner and a night out with the cousin. I really should pick somewhere healthy to eat…but I have a massive hankering for Little Star (by far the best pizza in the Bay). Hopefully my discipline will win out, but I’m not too certain…

  1. Oh I love Kabuki! Sounds like a fun day, despite the imagery. I can’t wait to, you know, go outside again.

  2. […] live in D.C. We’ve got plenty of local landmarks, including the Reagan Building. I wonder if the Gipper would’ve liked it. ▶ No […]
