It was a pretty cool weekend in our neck of the woods. We did a bunch of shopping, went to a couple of restaurants and were going to play some tennis on the really nice day (was it Sunday?) but the damn courts were all filled up near us. So, we opted to go to the local Dick’s sport shop (what a dumb ass name) and get our rackets re-strung. I haven’t done it since last year so it wasn’t bad since I do not play a lot. However, Devina’s racket hasn’t been re-strung in many years, so I figured we could bring some new life into that racket.
We had made plans to venture into Philly on Monday, but it was rainy so we didn’t go there. We were watching TV the night before and saw a special on Philly cheese steaks and I wanted to try each of the supposed best eateries down there to decide for myself who makes the better one. I think one was called Pats’s and the other Geno’s. The only problem was that we have no clue where those establishments are. I saw a sign for 9th street in the special and I know where 9th is, so when we do venture into Philly, I’ll just drive up or down the street until we find it.
Other than that, I finally got my haircut as well. However, this time I decided to shave it down all the way. It’s not a complete Telly Savalas look however. I may actually go all the way in a couple of weeks depending on if I like this look or not. Devina made a crack about me looking like Private Gomer Pyle (of Full Metal Jacket fame) at first. I’d rather have hoped to look more like Ewan MacGregor in Trainspotting… At least he looked really cool in that flick with a short buzz. Maybe if I grew in some sideburns, It would look better. 🙂
It seems though that she really digs the new look. She couldn’t stop rubbing the fuzz on my head after I took a shower. Actually, I caught myself rubbing the back of my head a few times while I was busy rebuilding a SQL box here. It’s quite relaxing actually… Kind of like that neat feeling of rubbing something made of soft velvet.
