D and I had another good weekend. He brought me flowers... and I discovered that I own NO vases. I mean, it just seems more loserish to have vases just sitting around when you haven't received flowers in 10 years. I used a mason jar. The possibilities for Mason Jars are truly astounding. We also had Ethiopian food, which is intense and messy (and delicious).
Saturday we went downtown for a friend's 30th birthday booze fest. I picked my outfit based on wanting to wear certain heels so we were overdressed but that is fine. The plan was to pre-party in the hotel suite, dinner in the building, people mover to Greek Town.
Highlights: Seeing the riverfront and Windsor from the 68th floor of the Ren Cen is badass. It was 10 couples at the party and it was nice to be a part of one, for once! Made some new friends.
Lowlights: I could have done with better food and drinks for $90 at Andiamo but, alas, it was a fun dinner. I lost $20 in less than 5 minutes by thinking a nickel slot was a penny slot... and betting 40 lines. FML. The strip club charges ladies to get in so the idea was nixed. (why do I think a strip club would be fun, you ask?! NO IDEA)
Scene: We are on the People Mover and it is packed due to the Auto Show, Wings Game and other downtown awesomeness. We notice a small child sitting alone. As most of us are horrible people, we figured there was a logical explanation and disregard (seriously, I lack a mothering gene). Well, D decides that he should sit down and talk to said child to see if he can help in some way. Here is the conversation:
D: "Hey little boy, are you riding alone?" "err... little girl"
Child: "I'm 24, going on 25 asshole"
D (to the group): "Holy shit, did you guys know that was a midget?!" (we did not!)
Top 5 things I learned this weekend:
- Invest in ear plugs so both of us can sleep. I mean, err, he sleeps on the couch.
- He is allergic to cats... and didn't mention it. That seems like something to mention when I have a cat who happens to LOVE sitting on your lap or sleeping on pillows. I also have Claritan.
- Someone who was a short order cook at Denny's can make a mean "Moons Over My Hammy" replica sandwich.
- He wants to name a son after himself (carry on a family name). I, politely, "labor trumped" that.
- New eyeglasses are hot.
Over and out.
