Biking Weekend

Well this weekend has been pretty busy. Friday I just stayed home after work and had an enjoyable evening alone. That was nice to just hang out and relax. Saturday I got up early in the morning and headed down to Long Beach. Did a great 50 mile ride that day. There’s a 70 mile ride coming up in a couple weeks going from Irvine to San Diego, and then you catch the train back. It sounds like it would be a lot of fun, so I think I am going to sign up for that. After the ride I came home, showered and then went and got my hair cut and stopped at Target to pick up a few things.

While I was there I realized I forgot the croutons for my Meatloaf I was going to make. So I checked out the food section and couldn’t find any croutons. So I just headed next door to the Ralphs. I ended up getting a whole basket full of stuff. Most of it was on sale with a ralphs club card. So I get up to the check out line and the woman rings up my stuff. I realize I left my club card in the car, and just enter my phone number… Which NEVER works. I swear, the thing doesn’t work with out of state phone numbers. Because everytime I try to do that at any of the grocery stores it never works. Anyways, I try twice then the cashier woman tries. Doesn’t work. So she says that I can’t get the club discount. I say to her, “Don’t you have one you can just scan for me?”. It’s not that big of a deal, most cashiers have one, thier own or what not that they’ll just scan. They get points towards coffee at starbucks and whatnot, so why not? She says, “No, we’re not allowed to do that.” So then I do whate everyone else does.. I ask the lady behind me. Typical grandma style woman, she’s confused at first but when I explain it to her again she gladly hands over her Club card for me to use.

The cashier refuses to take it… WHAT?!?!?! Now this is where things get ridiculious. It doesn’t MATTER whos card it is. The cashier goes off on this rant about how it’s “Wrong that you get her discount” and blah blah blah. Excuse me? It’s NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL. It’s not like the old woman has to pay the card, it’s not like the money is coming out of the cashiers pockets. It’s a discount that ANYONE could have gotten. Hell I could have just taken the 5 minutes to sign up for a new card if I really wanted to. But I didn’t want to hold up the line any more then it already was. At one point the cashier in the next line even turned to the old woman and said. “I really don’t know what her damn problem is.” Sooo funny. Anyways, on the way out I happen to run into a manager and told him the story, then the old woman stopped and talked to him. As soon as she was done he ran over to the phone and picked it up. I assume to yell at her or something.

The old lady and I stopped outside and chatted for a while. It was great.

After that I went home and made my meatloaf. Sooo yummy! By that time it was like 6pm and I was exhausted from running around all day, so I again just spend the night at home and watched the movie magnolia. It was very very strange. Raining frogs?! WTF?

Sunday morning I got up early and headed up to Santa Monica for a ride with Team 100. Pretty big group there this time, which was cool. There was this new really cute boy, like REALLY cute, anyways, he totally falshed like everyone. You could see his junk. Haha. I also met this guy Wayne and Nick. They were pretty cool. Nick and I got lost early on though because we were following this guy who apparently wasn’t in our group. lol. Opps. Wayne and I think that NIck got lost again because he took off from us about 10 miles before the first rest stop and we lost track of him. But he was no where to be found at the first stop. Opps again. I headed back from there because I was on a time constraint.

Met up with Ben for lunch at The Counter which was relaly good as per usual. After that we went shopping, and then split ways for a couple hours.

He came back over at 8:30 and we hung out. It’s good to have him back in town. 🙂
