hey chad, what's goin' on?

whew... umm... I hurt everywhere.

On friday afternoon I traveled to connecticut for the "spear dance party". It is a house in the middle of the woods with a dance floor and tent. I danced until 3 in the morning. We then had a large slumber party where little more than 2 hours sleep was had on the floor. In the morning there was clean up, which turned into afternoon of playing with water and food. I hitched a ride with Jonah down to the hudson river and got on a train back to the city and napped a half hour. The responsible thing would have been to get some sleep. I went bike shopping. The first store I went to was closed, so I had to find another. I test rode a bike and purchased it. I went home and napped for an hour - It was now 9:30 pm (3.5 hours sleep). I went to midnight madness.

at 10 pm on Saturday I arrived at 11th ave between 14 and 15 in that little park. I was exhausted. The game started. (the game is a combination scavenger hunt and problem solving puzzle for a team) I became in charge of the scavenger hunt part of the game. now... I thought I wanted to go into details of the game, but I am too tired and need to do other things, so I will sum up what I did by location. I stayed in the park for an hour or two, went to 20th btw 10th and 11th for a few hours, went to starlight diner on 34th and 9th for an hour went to the pennies (I have no idea where that was... wow.) I worked on this problem for about 4 hours all around the place - got held up on 18th btw 9th and 10th. went to 23rd and 11th for an hour, then back to game control on 20th for the rest of the game. There I became friends with "game control" the creators of the game and worked hard to get our team as much information as possible. we were in the lead for the last half of the game and got stuck on the last clue. we came in second at approximately 2:00 in the afternoon.

I then watched "my super ex-girlfriend" after a shower in a hotel work out spa. I tried to watch "pirates" but I was falling asleep. I biked back to my house and passed out at 9:30 pm.

that's a 57 hour period with 3 and a half hours of sleep.

Now I have 4 photo shoots, a wedding, and rehearsal dinner this week.

AND poison ivy on my feet, I just want to go back to bed for a while.
