I wish I wasn't around these people in my family so much. they are sucking the life out of me.
there's also the opposite of that... the one weird superfriend/cousin that corals anyone (even huge groups of people) into having fun and letting loose. You always say to yourself "damn I love him/her!" when you're finally on your way home.
we got to hang out with that friend this weekend. the guy ended up missing his flight on friday to Portland Maine (because of a delay in his connecting flight) so he re-routed from Boston and drove 2hours to Portland, ME in miserable weather in the middle of the night anyway
. You could feel the void of fun and relaxation about 30seconds after he left.
I had a great weekend. Ate too much lobster, taught a young brother and sister how to eat lobster, did a little shopping in Freeport, went to Acadia National Park on Sunday and the weather actually cleared up for a bit, took my dogs to an epic dog park, and actually got some good sleep too. Damn I love Maine.... the wife and I are really considering moving to the area permanently.
