Who's in the mood for a weekend recap? Is it you?! I think it is! First things first, the DCist happy hour was great. It's the first time I've gone to a DCist gathering sans-other friends, and it proved quite productive in my mingling abilities and socializing. Got to hang out with the people I email with ad nauseum, and meet lots of other interesting characters. And listen to good music courtesy of DJ Leafblower
. And watch the Hoos stomp the Heels, as predicted (nay, guaranteed
) by the afore mentioned DCeiver. So it was a good time. And
I got home around 10, so I was able to watch The O.C. before slumberton. So productive.
Friday night I went out to dinner at Sette Bello, the new Italian place in Clarendon owned by the Cafe Milano folks. The food: outstanding. The service: baaaaaaaad. They are so clearly understaffed and over patroned that it made for a very long and at times frustrating meal. But I was in good company and enjoying delicious food and wine, so the woes were asuaged. For dessert, we headed to the Ballroom for a night of general drunkenness and merriment. Beth was in town (!), so she came out and met up. We had lots of fun, such as:
Defining quote of the evening: "You know why you're gay?"
Saturday Beth and I and Mrs. T went for a delicious lunch of fajitas, and a delicious afternoon movie. We saw Glory Road, which I loved. I generally love sports movies. And basketball. And Josh Lucas. So this one really had a lot going for it. I definitely cried. And there was a lot of in-theater clapping, so I think it was an all around crowd pleaser. After that I took a crucial nap for most of the afternoon/early evening, and woke up refereshed and ready to celebrate life with Sam, Sars Eye Stacy, Tyler and Fresh From Richmond Paul. We also had lots of fun, such as:
Not pictured: The partially-naked hot tub extravaganza. Thank God.
Defining challenge of the evening: Keeping the goods below the water level.
Sunday, after more napping, mom came over and we shampood my carpet. Cause I'm a home owner and do things like shampoo my carpet. And depend on my mom more than I probably should at age 24. It's so fresh and so clean clean. Please observe the newly instated shoe-removal rule when you come a'callin.
Plans on the horizon that I'm stoked about: Sunday brunches with my friends (it will happen. Oh yes. And I'll use my multi-colored coffee mugs!), and the Summer of 2007 DC --> Mexico --> Alaska winnebego tour, also with my friends. We're all planning on being in between jobs that summer so that we can take a good 1 to 2 months for the trip. Yesssssssss!More pictures here.
