Things To Do In San Diego: October 8-9, 2012

So you may have noticed that things have been a little bit different for me lately. Instead of my life being almost exclusively shows and working online, I've been mixing things up, trying to get a little more balance in my life. Nothing specific and no specific goal, but I suppose the recent birthday is always a reminder to get off my ass an do something. Lately this has included going places (the Zoo, Safari Park, downtown, the Embarcadero) as well as mixing it up with fun stuff like ping-pong and archery and road testing a bike I might buy from a friend. It has been really awesome but like an idiot, I took my own body for granted, and attempted to play tennis this weekend which resulted in some loud *pop* in my calf that has dependent on crutches for at least a couple days. I started playing tennis at 8 years old and played through college and even taught for a few summers in Coronado, so it was great to jump back on a court and sweat out in the sun, to get that forehand groove back, or to hit a serve in the sweet spot. It is also why it is so utterly disappointing when your body doesn't do what you want it to, so I suppose I'll be laying off the sporty spice stuff for a few days. In the meantime, this week has some great shows so it isn't so bad. I'll be the girl sitting down. Monday and Tuesday archives are after the jump.
