Good Evening, Kittens!
It's cocktail hour, so make yourself a little libation, sit back, and read all about my exciting weekend ...
Friday, after work, I met Alison at Jaleo. We had tapas. And many, many glasses of sangria. Well, I had many, many glasses. Alison, who is a lightweight, made me finish the last half of her only glass of sangria.
After Jaleo, she left to meet another friend and I went home.
AND, guess what? I had not one, but TWO, packages waiting for me. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 and Charlie's Angels: Season 1. OMG. So much excitement to watch. I had also received The Wiz through Netflix, and that's what I ended up watching Friday night. Ease on down. Ease on down. Ease on down the ro-ad. Alison got back around 10PM, but we decided it was too late to start HP7A, which is nearly 2.5 hours long. (Two and a half hours of PURE AWESOME, btw.)
Saturday, Alison left to meet some friends for lunch. I putzed around the house. I shopped online (purchasing $30 worth of Classic Whitney Houston *and* a new iPhone). And, I watched lots and lots of Charlie's Angels, Season 1. Alison had dinner plans as well, so I ended up going to a new (to us) Mexican restaurant in Silver Spring with SCGB. It was OK. I like El Golfo better (and it's closer). After dinner, we did cocktails at Casa de Esteban. SCGB left. Alison got home around 11:30, and we decided to watch HP7A. Did I mention that it is 2.5 hours of PURE AWESOME?
Of course, that meant that we didn't get to bed until after 2:30AM. And we needed to be up at 8. And the power flickered, which meant my alarm didn't go off.
But, somehow, I got up at 8:15. Sweet.
We had a little visit with Tomokito (who knew Alison from our grad school days) and Cute Not-Really-a-Baby-Anymore Baby Hana. Then, we journeyed to Union Station to put Alison on the 12PM MegaBus to NYC.
I went to the pottery studio. Which was a wasted trip, because the kiln is still borked. Grr. So, I left and had a boozy lunch at Adega. SCGB joined me and we split a bottle of wine. Then, we headed home. Tomokito came down and we had cocktails ... and another bottle of wine.
SCGB left for a date. Tomokito went home. I watched HP7A (2.5 hours of PURE AWESOME!) again, and -then- went to bed.
Today, I made two more doctor's appointments (ENT and endontist). I went to the grocery store. I took a nap. And, later, I am going on a date with a cute English Lit teacher.
Have a great evening!
