Good Morning, Kittens!
Terribly sorry for the lack of posting ... I'd say I've been busy, but -actually- I'm just lazy.
So ... let's see ... where did we leave off ... last Monday's penultimate pottery class was good. I trimmed 5 bowls.
Tuesday, I did laundry (a day early, because ...)
Wednesday, I had an after work happy hour with my company people. I left work early (around noon) to have a visit with the surgeon. And, guess what? I get to have surgery AGAIN! YAY!
Or, well, not yay. Because PWS*? Not Fun. I've scheduled it for Friday, December 2nd. Woo hoo. Which means, I will be missing out on lots of fun Holiday parties. Boo. But, hopefully, I will be recovered enough to not be Super Mr. Crankypants while I'm at my brother's house over the holiday.
SO, after receiving that wonderful news, I went to happy hour. Since it was a work-thing, I try to limit my alcohol consumption. No one likes to get ubersloshed in front of their bosses. I was not entirely successful. I did not get ubersloshed; however, I did get slightly tipsy. Grrr.
Thursday, our new division chief guy had a "team-building" luncheon at a place that had NO vegetarian options (I had checked ahead so I brought my lunch). We had to wear these horrible matching shirts. Vomit. On the plus side, the new division chief guy dismissed us after the lunch. YAY! Of course, I had evening plans in the District. So, my co-worker and I went shopping and then drinking at Capitol City Brewery.
That evening, I journeyed to H St, NE, to visit my friend, Barbara. And meet her new boo. That was fun. Cocktails. Snacks. Good conversation.
Friday, at work, the Cleaning and Organizing Bug struck. A co-worker and I cleaned out and organized our supply cabinets and closet. They are so nice and tidy now. Yay! After work, I blobbed on the sofa. Yay for blobbing.
Saturday, I had dinner with Mike (Who Makes Cakes). Then, we went to Ray's 30th Birthday party at Melting Pot, where I realized that I don't really enjoy fondue all that much. It was fine. Nice people. Decent drinks. But, I don't feel any need to ever go there again.
And, Sunday was totally not my day. I planned to get up early to go to the Whole Foods before the Weekend Thanksgiving Shoppers descended like locusts. However, I did not get up early. And when I finally got to the store, I realized I had forgotten my wallet. I went back home and did some housework until time to drive to pottery. Once at pottery, nothing I had made was ready to be glazed. Grr. However, I did have some finished bowls and vases. Unfortunately, one vase had some broken glaze. I managed to slice my thumb open on the sharp edges. Ouch. AND, when I got home, Tomokito called to see if I had hot water. I didn't. It turns out our building's hot water heater broke somehow.
The plumbers came, but they can't fix it. Which meant a very cold shower this morning. K-brrrrr. The plumbers left. I walked to the Whole Foods and, then, treated myself to some drunken noodle at That at Silver Spring.
Then, home and -eventually- bed. Yay!
Today is the last pottery class. fingers crossed that they did a bisque-firing and I can glaze my pots. Otherwise, it will be a sad, sad Xmas for some ...
Have a great day! *smooches*
