I hope your weekend has been chock full of fun and excitement. This is my first two-day weekend in, like, MONTHS. It's crazy! How do you people do it? How do you get everything done, whilst still maximizing your sofa blobbing time?
ANYWAY, so Friday, after work, I met my friend, Eric (not from Baltimore) for happy hour. We ended up having several boozy beverages at Capital City Brewery. Huzzah.
Then, I went home. I texted a "friend" ... and he just so happened to be "chillaxin'" ... So, I invited him over to watch movies. We watched most of "The Sound of Music" ... Then, the "watching movies" part took over. Good times ;-)
Saturday, I went for an 8 mile run. I think I may have died. Later, I resurrected. And ventured into DC to meet my friend, R, for dinner at Thai Tanic. OMG. Their food is sooooo good. Then, I came home and watched "One Day."
I read the book and (mostly) enjoyed it. The movie was not as good as the book, but was still quite good. I think my main problem was the casting of Anne Hathaway. Even though I LUVLUVLUV her, she seemed miscast, not really fitting the mental image I had of the character. Oh, well.
This morning, I woke up early(ish) and went to the Trader Joe's. Huzzah! I didn't make a list (big mistake), so I bought a lot of things I didn't really need (like the pretty purple flowers pictured above. Only $1.99!) and forgot to buy several things I did need. Oops.
I am trying to eat healthier, and M has inspired me to start making smoothies again. I tried to make one when I got back, and somehow managed to break my zhuzher. Oh, sweet zhuzher, I miss you so much already. How will I make delicious pureed soups now? *sigh*
Fortunately, I have enough credit card rewards points that I should be able to get a new smoothie-making blender and, possibly, a new zhuzher for free! YAY!
Then, I went to the pottery studio. I made this:
Once home, I called my folks and did my ironing for the week. Good times.
Tonight, I am going to watch some of the Oscars Red Carpet with Tomokito. And, then, I'll probably go to bed. Good times.
If you are going to watch the Oscars, you should check out my brother's new blog: Cheese is Funny. He'll be live blogging the Oscars. Sometimes, he can be quite clever. So, check it out. Or not. Whatever.
Have a fabulous Oscar Night! *smooches*
