As you are reading this, I am heading to the airport. Yesterday afternoon, after I got home from another fabulous time with the Cuz and the GayProf, I went online to check my flight status and it said: CANCELLED!!!! (because of weather). I called the airline and they couldn't rebook me on a direct flight to DC until today. Extra Time with the Cuz! It is awesome!
So, anyway, here's the rundown of my SuperFun Vacation ...
I arrived on Thursday. The Cuz picked me up at the airport. We got to her house and had cocktails. Yay. Later, GayProf, who only lives a few blocks away (!), came over for dinner. We had lots of wine and pizza on the grill. And tiramisu.
The next day, GayProf came over for lunch - leftover salad and prosecco. Then, we drove over to the Arboretum. It was lovely. See:
We left the Arboretum to meet the Cuz, the Cuz-in-law, and some of the Cuz's co-workers/friends at Aut Bar, the gay bar in Midwestern Funky Town. After many fun beverages, we wandered up to Seva, a vegetarian restaurant, for dinner ... and margaritas.
The Cuz and Cuz-in-law went home. Gayprof, John (a friend of the Cuz and the 'Prof), and I headed to Detroit. First stop: Pronto, a gay bar in Royal Oak* ... the highlight of which (besides some mighty fine looking menz) was when some drunk girl started playing with my hair ...
Drunk Girl: I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv yer haaaaaaaaaaaaaaair.
Me: Thank you
Me: Washington, DC
DG: You... go. allthewaay to deeeeeeeescheeeeeeeeeeeeeee?
Then, before her head exploded, I explained that I am only visiting and am actually from DC.
From Pronto, we headed into Detroit, to a once-a-month dance party held here:
Oslo. Sushi. Thai. Bar. Lounge. Nightclub. It smelled like Egg Rolls. The nightclub part was in the basement. It was dark. And the music was ... how to put this nicely? ... bad and not danceable. Although, towards the end, we danced.
And, this creepy little drugged out 23-year-old kept hitting on me.
We got home at around 3:30AM. *yawn*
Saturday, it rained a lot. The Cuz, Cuz-in-law and I did lots of blobbing on the sofas. It was quite lovely. In the evening, we headed over to the home of some of their friends for a small cocktail party. Then, we went to some other friends' home for dinner - delicious veggie kabobs and seitan loafy things. And lots and lots of booze. And, then, some more booze.
Sunday, after a relaxingly lazy morning, we walked over to GayProf's cute little house for a delicious brunch. Tequila Sunrises! Quiche! Wine! Cake! YUMz!
That night, the Cuz and I prepared several tapas out of Jose Andres' Cookbook. They were delicious ... but time-consuming. We made patatas bravas, spinach with apples and almonds, white almond gazpacho, and a green bean salad. It was a lot of work. We decided that in the future, unless we have a staff assisting us, it might be easier to make only one tapas and a salad.
Monday, after doing some reading, GayProf picked me up and we met the Cuz for lunch at the Red Hawk Pub.
The Cuz went back to work. GayProf helped me pick out a small Thank You for Taking Care of Isabella gift for SCGB. Then, he showed me some sites of the campus ...
And, his office. How many cute little male undergrad hearts have been broken here?
GayProf drove me back to the Cuz's home. After learning that my flight was cancelled, the Cuz/Cuz-in-law and I ordered sushi and watched 30 Rock for hours.
So, all in all, a SuperFun trip. It was so great hanging out with my Cuz and Cuz-in-law, who are two of the most supercool, fantastic people I know. I totally want to be like them when I grow up ... except for the heterosexual/married part.
PLUS, I met one of my very first BlogCrushes and learned that he is totally Crush Worthy in Real Life, too. GayProf is smart, funny, tall, cutecutecute, *and* he laughs at my jokes (and he likes to drink. What's not to love?). Why don't they make guys like him in DC? Hm??? Why?
Have a great day! Keep your fingers crossed for an uneventful flight, and -if you want- check out the rest of the photos from my trip here.
*Or not a gay bar ... I was totally going to link to their website, but you can't even tell it's a gay bar from their WhiteBreadSite. What up with that?
