Good evening, Kittens.
I hope you have had a productive day. My weekend has been chock full of fun and excitement ... if you consider blobbing on the sofa and taking naps to be "fun and excitement."
Lessee ... Friday night, after work, I had plans for happy hour. I headed to Bar Dupont for their $5 happy hour cocktails. Mike was running late. Tomokito had to cancel. So only Bobby met me. After a couple of drinks, we headed to Upstairs Annie's to meet Mike and his friend, Kelvin. Annie's is a steakhouse. I had a salad. and several cocktails.
Mike's friend, Brian, joined us. Bobby left. And we headed somewhere for another round of drinks. And then I came home.
Saturday, I blobbed around the house. Tomokito came down for cocktails. Then, I went shopping. I used a gift card my brother gave me for Xmas to buy the above pictured tome, I Know How to Cook. It is fabulous. and French. and full of meat recipes. But, whatevs. Someday I will use it to cook delicious vegetarian French food. After shopping (and refusing to buy a SuperCute pair of chocolate brown skinny jeans because the Actual Mission was to find a nice pair of black flat front work pants), I headed over to Mike's for a night of games. We played Wii. We played cards. We ate pizza. We drank wine. I came home.
Sunday. More blobbing. Actually, LOTS more blobbing, because it was rainy and gross. I watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy on DVD (extended versions!).
Monday (today!), the weather was sunny and warm (comparatively). So, after lounging around for a bit, I walked up to Whole Foods for some shopping and then had a boozy lunch at Adega. Then, I came home and napped. And washed dishes. And ironed. And got ready for the big annual meeting of my co-op (which is tomorrow, which also signifies the end of my two-year term on the Board. Huzzah!). And, in the process, discovered I had made several mistakes on hand-outs which will need to be re-done and re-copied. Gah.
Around 5PM, Tomokito came down for cocktails (imagine!) and, then, SCGB, who is home after spending 2 weeks in Dubai (!), joined us.
And, now, I find myself alone, with a bowl of rice in green tea broth, contemplating my mortality ...
You see, since Saturday, my heart has been doing this weird "skipping beats" thing. Sometimes it's after two beats. Sometimes it's after 83 beats (hello? hypochondriac alert?). I think it might be stress related. And I probably should go to the doctor about it ... once I find a cute gay/gay-friendly doctor who accepts my new insurance.
So, couple the weird heart thing with the super painful shoulder (which has hurt for about a week b/c I've been sleeping in a weird position) and the fact that I feel like I could be coming down with a cold of some sort (feel slightly feverish + cough + random aches) and you have the whole OMG I'M TURNING 40 IN A COUPLE MONTHS AND MY BODY IS FALLING APART!!!! thing that is running my life now.
Yeah. Fun times. Anywayz, if I die in the next couple of days because of this weird heart skipping beats thing or the Swine Flu or some random Shoulder Tumor, will someone volunteer to take care of Isabella? Thanks!
Have a great week!
