Wedding Caketini AND Watermelon Jolly Rancher

Welcome to week 2.

It's been a long week. That being said:

I couldn't help myself. I had two. First off I had the Wedding Caketini in celebration of Brooke and Ryan who tied the knot on Friday. The actual flavor of the drink reminds me of something else, but I don't think wedding cake. If it weren't for the amaretto it'd obviously be a pineapple upside down cake instead but to the point, I give it a 6. I did enjoy it but it doesn't stick out as one I would like to have again this next year. For my second, I had the Watermelon Jolly Rancher. Isn't the name enough? We all know it doesn't taste a darn thing like something that's bad for you. I've had it before so I purposefully got it because it sounded good. It's definitely a 10. I don't even hesitate on that one.

So this evening was completely different than the last. Our conversations spanned many topics including: Funks: when you're in one, how do you get out?, Homosexuality: how's your gaydar?, Life: the new midlife crisis; finding your purpose and lastly, my favorite, Christian Playas: how to spot them and how to avoid them. I'm sure you can just imagine what was discussed. We laughed a lot and probably quite loud and there are some things that stay at the table :)

But really, my main question was how to get out of a funk? For reasons I cannot explain, I was in a funk on Friday. It's the worst feeling when you recognize it and you can tell that maybe others are picking up on it, but you still can't shake it! And then you get annoyed with yourself. I don't think I have a remedy except time and prayer. I think that's all I'll say on that matter. Anyone have other thoughts? I'm willing to discuss the other topics again too :)
