About two weeks ago, I made a post about not being able to attend my Bikram yoga class, but instead, I would work out on my Jillian Michael's DVD 'Yoga Meltdown' at home instead. A little bit later, I get a reply tweet from General Electric (GE) saying how cool I was at being so committed to my health. Then they followed me and asked me to follow them so that they could send me a DM (direct message). I followed them and they sent me a DM saying that they were impressed with my health activity and they wanted to see if I could give them my address so they could send me a gift. Well, this was GE and they had that blue arrow thingy which signifies that they are legit. So I gave them my address. I was thinking that they would send me a coupon, or even cooler, an exercise DVD. Well low and behold, on Friday, coming home feeling a little depressed, I see a big and tall box waiting for me by my mail box. It was delivered via Fed Ex and came from New York. I was thinking, 'What? Who sent me this?', then I remembered GE! So I ran up to my apartment, grabbed my box cutter and opened that bad boy in record time. And looky here:
And on Saturday, I drove over to Mt. Clemens to hang out with my Pearl Jam fan buddies to help celebrate the birthday of my dear friend Jim. His wife surprised him with a birthday party outing on the Clinton River on a nice boat tour on the Captain Paul II with the Clinton River Cruises company, which lasted for 3 hours. It took us up the river and into Lake St. Clair!!! This was such an awesome adventure of a free bar (I only had two drinks), great light food, excellent birthday cake, Pearl Jam music, and friends. And I wound up being the non-official Official photographer because I was the only one who had a "real" camera, everyone else bought their iPhone or androids.
What I want to emphasize is this trip helped remind me how beautiful the state of Michigan is. Lake St. Clair is the smallest of the five fresh water lakes that surround Michigan, but it's still like an ocean when you are out on it. I've been inspired to buy a boat now... one day. Here are just a few images from the boat ride, and the sunset was just lovely.
