Frequent driver miles

We're just like a family. On the 30th of December, my friend Carla (bottom right, above) came to visit in Sanibel, and then on New Year's Eve we took a little trip to Sarasota, Tampa and back again, visiting people such as those pictured above (me and Carla's boyfriend Bryan in back, my friends Sarah and Unconditional SurrenderCarla in front). A few highlights included seeing Precious, trying to eat one grape per second in the 12 seconds leading up to midnight New Year's Eve, doing Bikram Yoga on New Year's Day, making a kick-ass karaoke CD at the mall, and visiting the Unconditional Surrender statue in Sarasota, pictured at left.

Last night, I met up with two people I hadn't seen in ages: Tim, who I went to high school with and who works as a TV reporter in Fort Myers, and Jenelle, who I went to both summer camp and college with and who, coincidentally, works as a TV producer, with Tim. We had loads of fun with drinks and appetizers.

Mike gets in town today, and we'll spend a couple days in Sanibel before heading to Key West. Unfortunately, it's going to be pretty cold for his visit -- highs in the 60s and lows in the 50s, which is a good 10-15 degrees colder than average. Curses! But still warmer than Connecticut.


  1. What'd you think of Bikram? I've done it twice. On the second visit to the studio, while the instructor was walking amongst us clapping his hands to indicate when we were supposed to change positions, he clapped over me, thus creating a rainstorm of his sweat to fall upon my person. Haven't been back since.

  2. What a wonderful time! 2010 rocks :)

    Be safe and enjoy the rest of your magical trip!
