Still here

Have been busy living life instead of just blogging about it. 🙂 How was everyone’s weekend? I’ve missed y’all and will be ’round soon to say howdy!

Quick summary:

1. Took Shan out on Friday night for our first Girls’ Night Out since pre-Alex days. We lasted for four hours before Shan was ready to go home and see her precious little girl (that, and she was really tired!). We went to Bennigan’s in Springfield (as our old faithful Benny’s in Alexandria closed almost a year ago) and wandered over to TGI Friday’s. Wow! it was great to be out and about. And I was shocked to find that there are actually some very attractive people in this city!

2. Went with the gang down to Cafe Japone on Saturday night because Arthur Loves Plastic was spinning at a CD release party for “Savage Bliss.” The cover of said CD was designed by Scot, the same guy who designs my fabulous newspaper every month. I’ve had the CD on heavy rotation in my car since then, and I am digging it! If you like downbeat/trance, support your local, friendly artists and buy a CD!. I picked up her compilation CD, “Ten” today, which is a CD full of MP3s of all of her albums. I think all artists should release all their old stuff like this — it’s easier for us who are newer to their music and don’t want to buy 10 old albums. 🙂

2.b. “Queen of the World” came on just as I was pulling into work. The first two lines, “This job is so beneath me/Indignation seizes me” played as I pulled the key out of the ignition. Holy appropriateness, Batman! 🙂

3. It started raining while we were wandering around Dupont Circle on Saturday, and it’s a toss-up to define which one of us was most upset about the precipitation. Actually, I take that back — with two gay men, two prissy girls and one metrosexual, it just so happens that the metro was the one who was freaking out about how the rain would affect his newly cut-and-styled hair. 🙂 The rest of us knew we were pretty no matter what happened to our hair and makeup!

4. I was wandering around Party City in Springfield yesterday, and I saw all the 30th birthday party favors/invitations in the “Over the Hill” section. Gaah!!! Thank goodness I’m turning back time and only turning 27 this May, or I would’ve been REALLY upset! 😉 Ooh, I also stopped at Borders, and they have sugar-free coffee specialty drinks. Mmm — Cafe Milano. Woo hoo! It’s the little things in life, ya know?

5. It’s production week with the newspaper, so I’ll be busier than a one-armed coat hanger, especially ’cause we’re preparing to leave the state for our annual conference next week. Of course, every day, minute, hour, week, etc. at my work is a P-R-O-D-U-C-T-I-O-N, so it isn’t exactly unfamiliar territory. However, after some minor insults from the CEO last week, it was decided that we should upgrade all the Macs in the office to G5s. Yay! His annual evaluation should come around more often! (Maybe it’s wrong of me to tie the two together, but the timing couldn’t be better. I’ll have to remember that if I’m here next year at this time — save all requests for when he’s hoping for a favorable review!)
