Here's a quick rundown of my weekend ...
Friday, I left work an hour early to go get re-blonded. YAY! I look great. The Colornatrix recently returned from a 3-week trip to Thailand and Vietnam (Hate her!), so she talked about that, and I told her about my 3-day trip to Vegas. Afterwards, I met Mike (Who Makes Cakes) and Tiger (Who Doesn't Make Cakes) for dinner. We went to Austin Grill and had many margaritas. Then, I went home.
On Saturday, I blobbed around. Then, I had boozy lunch at Adega, bought some prosecco and did a little grocery shopping at the Whole Foods. I made a ginger syrup for these drinks, which I took to SCGB's apartment for a little dinner party. On the way to the party, I ran into some friends on the bus. That was totally random. It made the bus ride go more quickly which was a bonus.
Dinner was great. SCGB's BF was there, as were the German and the German's (Hot) Wife and their 9-month-old. We ate. We drank. We played Apples to Apples ... and, then, the German and the German's (Hot) Wife drove me home.
Sunday, I did my taxes. Yay! Except I am missing one form (my 1099-G from Maryland). I should be OK without it. And, I am getting a decent refund. Huzzah.
Later, Tomoko came down and we made more Ginger Sparklers:
And, I watched "50/50" ... which was pretty durn good.
On Monday, I went to the Pottery Studio. I made this:
Later, K-Factor came down for more Ginger Sparklers ... I had a lot of ginger syrup left (and my neighbors all have champagne! How fortuitous!).
And, then, today, I went to work. Joy. BUT! The coolest thing happened. I was taking a break from reading an SOW and opened up Grindr on my phone. I saw one picture and thought, "That looks like S (a blogger friend who lives in Pakistan)." So I messaged him. "S??! Is that you? Are you in DC?"
It was he! He's here for a week vacation and staying less than a mile from where I work. How awesome is that?!?! AND, it just so happens that my usual lunch crew had an all day meeting and S was free for lunch! We met at Eastern Market metro and went to Ted's Bulletin. I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup (nom!). I think the last time we were able to hang out was when I was in London (maybe in 2006?) and he was working there at the time. It was so great being able to catch up. I hope we are going to be able to meet up again before he leaves.
And, that should bring you up to date on my life!
Have a wonderful evening!
