how to feel alive, part 347...

... or, a lake, some youth, and some silliness.

tonight was girl's night at the house, but it was off site, so another volunteer and i were going to keep the house open for the guys. well, he wasn't feeling up to it, and the other volunteers that were supposed to help the activities coordinator with girls night bagged, so i got drafted for that and we closed up the house for the evening.

turned out girls night this week was going over to a beach on Lake Washington, going swimming, and checking out the chicks that Michal swore was going to be there. well, there weren't any chicks, save us. i wasn't going to go in, because i didn't have a suit, but i was wearing cargo shorts and a sports bra and a tshirt, so i lost the shirt and ended up going in the water.

so i've been in Lake Washington now. damn, that stuff's cold for the first five minutes.

it was fun. it was a lot of fun. we played football in the water for awhile, but it was a nerf ball and got to be heavier than the average concrete block, so we played with one of those frisbee ring things for awhile, until someone sent it out of catching distance and it sunk before we could get to it.

there was good conversation and some guitar playing and much giggling. and one of the volunteers gave me a ride home to save me from freezing my ass off on the way home on the bus.

the only down side to the evening was the guy who came out to the beach to swim in a speedo that was soooo not covering everything, leading to a lot of comments from the girls about "this is why i do not date guys." the goods weren't even all that attractive, either... Michal eventually asked him to put it away, and he left. thank goodness.

i need to start wearing my nametag around the house for a bit, as it seems most of the house had forgotten i was a volunteer. *giggles* "you're 25?" "yea..." "yo, i thought you were 18."

the wonderful Ginger is making us soup, so it's time to go get that...

    I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key…
