Weekend Update: Boozy Fun and Pottery Edition

Good Morning, Kittens.

And, another (thankfully short) work week begins. I think I can handle three days. We'll see ...

My weekend was rather uneventful. Friday night, I stayed in, watching movies and stuff. I crashed soon after 10PM (I think).

Saturday, I was up early and blobbed around the house. A lot. I did a few chores. Some knitting. But not much else. Around 4PM, Tomokito came down for Martini Time. Then, around 7:30, I left for a party for two of my neighbors in Capitol Hill. The party was fun. Nice people. Good times.

Sunday. Very hungover. Which is weird because I didn't drink all that much. Ugh. I don't think I ate enough though. sigh. AND, there was some stupid 10k going down the street at around 9AM with a Very Bad Cover Band Singing Bad Covers. Awful. Loud. And awful.

Once that stopped, I took a long nap on the sofa. Yay.

Around 3PM, K-Factor and I went to the pottery studio. I glazed my final 5 pieces and I picked up for finished ones. I still have 11 or 12 pieces to pick up in the next few weeks ... if the studio manager ever gets around to firing up the glaze kiln.

Here are some pix:

On the way home from the studio, K-Factor and I stopped by Trader Joe's where we bought (among other things) frozen pizza for dinner. Tomokito joined us in K-Factor's apartment to look at pictures from her (K-Factor's not Tomokito's) trip to Cambodia. We ate pizza. We drank beer.

Then, after Tomokito left, we sampled the Candy Corn Vodka with Ginger Beer:


It was very sweet. I think it would be better with a splash of lemon juice.

And, that was it. Have a great Monday! *smooches*


  1. The cocktail does sound sweet.

    Ginger beer sounds yum.

  4. Gosh, I hope everyone checks out 123 123's designs for their escort ad, considering he/she/it is such good friends with VUBOQ.

    I'm surprised they got in, what with the word verification and all. I hope this is not a trend we all will be seeing more of.

    Candy corn vodka? No thanks.
