*whew* What a weekend, Kittens! Vuboq is ex-hausted.
But, first, a note to dog-owners in Dupont Circle:
Not everyone loves your dogs. And, yes, I'm talking to you unattractive straight man with the two huge, poorly trained dogs which managed to chase everyone away from the prime shady location you and your rather cute girlfriend with the well-behaved dog -on his leash- chose to sit.
If you have to keep saying things like, "Zeus, come back" and "Zeus, bad dog," someone needs to put Zeus back on his lead. And, that someone isn't me. Me, I don't like Zeus and his friend sniffing all up in my stuff when I'm trying read, knit, and scope out hot shirtless mens.
I hate to break it to you, sweetie, but Dupont Circle is *not* a dog park. You need to keep your beasts on their leashes until they are trained to stay by your side. Because, and I think this bears repeating: Not. Everyone. Loves. Your. Dogs.
OK. Back to the Weekend Update.
Friday night out with Robert was fun. We went to Halo. Then, Alero. Then, swung by Fab Lounge. It was full of lesbians, so we left. I got home rather early which was nice, and I wasn't *too* hungover on Saturday morning.
Saturday, I decided to do some yard work. I cleaned out the little strip of land in front of my building - weeding, cutting back dead plants, raking away leaf litter. Then, a neighbor and I drove up to the hardware store to buy mulch. And, now there is Full Frontal Mulching. Life is good. And the yard looks 100 times better too (IMHO).
We finished around 2/2:30, and that's when I realized: Fuck. I've missed my opportunity to stalk Tim Gunn. Damn. I showered, ate some lunch, and head to the Circle to meet Robert. We blobbed around for a few hours and then ate dinner at Straits of Malaya on the roof deck. Very nice.
The word for Sunday was "OW." My hamstrings and lower back were (and still are) sore sore sore. I guess I haven't done much bending over and kneeling down recently. At least, in the "doing yardwork" context. So, like the clever person I am, I decided to rearrange my living room. It is coming together quite nicely, and i like how it looks. I need to tidy it up and do a little more cleaning tonight and it will be quite the liveable living room. Yay.
After rearranging most of the furniture, I called this guy I have been chatting with recently. We had talked about going rollerblading, but I was too sore/tired. I left a message, saying I might head to Dupont later and maybe we could meet up there. He text messaged back, so about an hour (or so) later, when I got to Dupont, I sent him a text message telling him I was there.
The response: "Who is this?"
Meanwhile, I had been dealing with the previously mentioned doggy disaster and I thought "Figure it out, Einstein" seemed a little harsh, so I didn't respond. I moved away from the dogs and waited for Robert. We hung out for a bit, then headed to Alero for margaritas, liquid cheese, and spinach enchiladas. YUM.
And, that was my weekend. In a nutshell. It was quite lovely.
