On Sat I was pretty bored. I had to wake up EARLY (8:30!!!!!!!!!!) to let in the bug removers and I had to stay out of the house for 4 hours. In that time I got just about everything accomplished that I had planned to do during the entire week. I went and read my book (Unaccustomed Earth) and had breakfast at Starbucks – which was lovely. I then went to my fav gift shop, Silver in the City, in hopes of finding a birthday gift for my sis. Instead I found a few gifts for myself including a new clutch, a key chain, and a make-it-yourself card kit.
The purchases were necessities I promise you this. Since I didn’t find anything there for Carrie’s birthday I decided to head to Mass Ave Toy Store. Maybe I could find something there for baby. Well, of course I didn’t find anything I was happy with for Carrie’s birthday, but I did find myself a sweet necklace (for only $16!!) and a present for my mom’s birthday
MOM IF YOU ARE READING, AVERT YOUR EYES
I found this lovely 2009 date book. It’s illustrated and has birds on it. Mom loves birds.
I then sat on a bench for bout an hour and talked to Kate on the phone. I finally just drove to Target where I got Carrie and Adam their birthday gifts – Catch Phrase for Carrie and 30 Rock Season 1 for Adam. I may have also bought It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 3 for me (Don’t judge – I had bugs in my house. It was a very traumatizing experience. )
Anyway… the moral of this story is to say that when I got home I was bored. I had a lot accomplished and my roommate was gone. I texted Jenn, “What are you doing tonight.” Luckily, nothing. She and I decided to go to Tallbot’s Street – a FABULOUS gay bar where we could dance our hearts out.
I put on my day-glo tank top that I’ve only worn once and gave myself some big ole hair. Jenn and I get there, have some libations (red headed slut and vodka water splash of lime), watch a drag show featuring COLD HEARTED SNAKE. ONLY MY FAVORITE MUSIC VIDEO EVER!
For a more detailed and entertaining account of the evening, please check out Jenn’s blog on it. And if you haven’t – bookmark her blog bc it’s FANTASTIC!
My favorite moment of the evening:
Jenn and Bess breaking it down on the dance floor – Glitter falls from the sky.
Jenn: This must be what heaven is like
I also want to paint you a picture of our dancing style. I think it most emulates this girl
