A Little Night Music Last night (since it is past midnight, technically this was two nights ago), Cur, Dubya, Jenny from the Block, Sar, YJ, and I went to the Hollywood Bowl and listened to the L.A. Philharmonic and the Big Bad Voodoo Daddies perform swing music. It was really fun with everyone getting in the mood: people of all ages were getting out of their seats and swing dancing in the aisles. We had a smorgasbord of food as well: we had a cheese platter with crackers and french bread, fruits, nuts, and even chocolate. Very yummy.
Today (Saturday), I treated my mom to lunch for her birthday, and had dinner with some of the boys. We went to Islands (it was Andrew's first time). It was very good, as usual. Afterwards, we went bowling. I sucked, as usual, for the first two games. However, something really weird happened during the third game. I actually beat Andrew!
I got gypped because for the first frame, I bowled a strike, but the last pin took forever to fall down, so the computer only counted 9 pins. All of a sudden, 10 pins were in front of me again, and Shimi was just like, "Bowl!" So I did, and I hit 9 pins. And the computer didn't count any of them. Then I tried bowling yet again, but I lost my grip and dropped the ball during my windup, at which point Shimi pointed and laughed at me. I picked up the ball, shaking with laughter, bowled, and hit the remaining pin for the spare. All Shimi could say was, "That was the hardest work done for a spare, ever."
In Andrew's defense, I only beat him by one point, and he would have beat me...except during the last frame, Shimi yelled out "Andrew!" just as Andrew was releasing the ball, totally wrecking his concentration...Thanks, Shimi!
