HIKE: Griffith Park (and, well, other stuff…)

So, I went on the group hike today.  Surprisingly… I had a good time.

Wait a minute, I need to re-read what I just typed.  Um… no, that’s right.  I’m kinda surprised by that myself, I must say.

Perhaps it was attitude going in that it was more social event than hike, perhaps it was the nice group of people, who knows.  In any case, I actually had a good time.

I can’t put too much of a recap here because, quite frankly, I have no idea where in the hell we went.  We went up a hill, we went to an overlook of some sort, we came back down the hill.  Then there was a BBQ, where I pushed myself out of my “I’m very, very good at being a wallflower” state and talked to a number of friendly folks. 

Sorry, that’s about all I remember.

Perhaps that’s because I spent most of the hike talking to a very nice girl.

Yep, you heard me.

She was cute, intelligent, and very interesting to talk to.  She’s a nurse in downtown LA.  She traveled to the Grand Canyon recently by herself because she wanted too, and you don’t meet too many women in LA who do that sort of thing.  And… she’s leaving town.

At the end of May.

For Africa.

For two years in the Peace Corps.

Well, naturally.

I can sure pick ’em, can’t I?

But we traded e-mail addresses.  And we talked about getting together for dinner later this week at an In-N-Out Burger because she wants to try the animal style burger.

This was where things got a little odd: she started to say “I’m sort of seeing somebody”, then cut herself off, and said “How about Thursday?”.  I’m not too sure what that means, but I’m just gonna roll with the punches on this one.  She’s nice and she’s attractive, so we’ll see what happens.

Of course, The Best Friend, upon hearing our dining destination, couldn’t help but point out – repeatedly – the innuendo in the name of the restraunt.

But I’m just gonna let that one slide…
