This week at work I asked about going to BlackBerry training during my spring break from school (March 9-13) and it looks like I will be going after all. I will be in Raleigh North Carolina for training for that week. I am looking forward to being in 60 degree weather while I am down there.

Friday night we went out to Bar Room for all you can drink 8-10 for $10. Not a bad deal. We ended up staying a little longer than that. I saw Dave and Randie there too. It was Randie's bachelor party. It was good to see them. I need to plan a night to hang out with the boys from GBG sometime soon. After Bar Room Shawn, Kara, her sister, and I went to Southside for some more drinks. After the girls decided to go to Mario's me and Shawn went back to Kara's. I then went to get a bus and of course it never showed up. I had to take a cab back to Oakland then drive back to Squirrel Hill only to find no close parking spaces. I was not happy.
Saturday I drove to Maryland for Nate's 7th birthday party. It was nice to see the fam although I was in somewhat of a strange mood the whole time and I am not even sure why. I ended up taking my grandma home afterwords back to Monroeville. When I was almost home, I got pulled over for speeding! I was so pissed, this is the first ticket I've had since I was in high school. At least the cop was cool and did not write my actual speed on the ticket. I just got something about not following a traffic control device. No points. :-)
After the ticket fiasco I went out to Charlie Murdock's and could not stop thinking about the stupid ticket for a long time. After I had enough drinks though I started to have fun and forgot about the ticket for a little while. I was a pretty good time. This is the first time I was there that I did not have to worry about driving home in a long time.
Nothing very special happened on Sunday. Grocery shopping and cardio by day, SoLearn meeting by night.
Yesterday I decided would be a good time to see if my elbow was cured from lifting and it was! I actually got to do chest. I was pretty happy so I should be back to a normal lifting schedual now. We'll see how things go today once I do triceps.

Today I ran for another 1/2 hour and did better than yesterday! I ran for four minutes straight and then did more interval running/walking. I was able to do more running than walking this time though. I got 2 1/2 miles today where yesterday I only got about 2. I know this is not that good, but hey, it's progress and I am glad that I am making it.
On a related note...I am starting my second week of being on injured reserve :-( I can still do some things as long as it does not involve triceps (elbow pain from previous post.) I think I would be okay if I went ahead and lifted anyways but I want to make sure I am 100% better so this does not mess me up for too long. I want to bench... I think I might be going through withdrawal...I told you I was addicted!

And here is a picture of me stading in front of a crowd singing random victory songs coming from a the stereo of bunch of people in a second floor apartment:
Another disapointing thing was that all of the bars were either closed or closing! WTF? Last time in Oakland we stayed in Boomerangs for a long time after the game. O well, it was still fun to get to be a part of it, next time though I for sure am going back to Oakland. No one knows how to party like good old Pitt!
One other funny note was this article from the Post Gazette this morning:
Council changes city's name to SixburghTuesday, February 03, 2009By Rich Lord, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Mayor Luke Ravenstahl may have changed his name, but Pittsburgh City Council one-upped him today by ceremonially renaming the entire city.
In a proclamation crafted by Councilman Bruce Kraus, the city's lawmakers commended the "open, practical and efficient management" of the Super Bowl-winning Steelers.
"The council of the City of Pittsburgh does hearby commend the Rooney family for bringing notoriety to the City of Pittsburgh," Mr. Kraus read, with the other members of council arrayed about him, before "officially designating the City of Pittsburgh in 2009 as the City of Sixburgh."
Mr. Ravenstahl ceremonially renamed himself Steelerstahl prior to the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.First published on February 3, 2009 at 10:37 am
I am one proud member of the Steeler Nation! :-)
