January - A FUN start to 2018!!!!
January is typically a slow-ish month for me. I try to focus on that thing called "work" so that I can earn my keep for summer shenanigans. There is not a lot to do in January in MN, so I keep busy by being active in 'sports'.. and by that, I mean bar dart league :) Its a fun way to kill time in the winter and all of the people on the dart league are frickin fun to be around. Even my captain... Snacks... who goes between motivating to sarcastic depending on the round. Thankfully, he keeps me on the team for mere participation points - I always show up. I don't always play well... I usually don't play well... but again, attendance counts! So much so that Captain bought me 'Lucky Dart Socks' to help my game...
The ride home from all of the festivities got pretty darn cold - but under all of our layers, we were still smiling! -------->
January also brought with it Football playoffs... and MN Vikings made the playoffs for the first time in (?) a hundred years (exaggeration) so of course I set out to watch all of the games at the local pub with bestie and friends. The first game we won was amazing - the whole pub was chanting SKOL and the Vikings song... it was so energetic and fun!!! $67 tab kind of fun!
I enjoy my commute to work.. I go the opposite direction of traffic. It's 24 miles away, but only 30 mins &I never endure traffic jams... but sometimes when it snows, the drive home can be a bear...my little car turns into a 4x4 machine to get me home! And in MN, the weather changes on a dime!
Can Can Wonderland Fun!
Brunch time with my riding crew - Winter is SOOOO long to wait thru to get to riding season! SO we make our own non-riding shenanigans to make due... A little brunch...
And then a little dive bar fun... and a daytime dance party brought to you by the ladies of the old SK crew!
Sights Downtown for the festivities:
Cardboard helmets hijacked for free and a little helmet fun
We LOVE MN!
And the Minneapolis Fire Department boys who kindly gave us a ride to our parking ramp in the freezing cold! We crammed all 6 of us into their vehicle and had lots of laughs in the short commute with these guys!
After the Downtown events wrapped up - we headed to First Avenue for a dance party that my friend won tickets for. While it turned out to be a DUD of an event, we still had a blast and caused some ruckus!
Laughter comes in many forms!
