Weekend Overview

Too much happening. No time to blog. Or, I'm just too lazy to make time.

Friday night I went uptown to Casey's apt. I brought the makings for rice krispie treats and because the grocery store had the brilliant foresight to place generic marshmallows next to Chimay, I brought a bottle of that as well. Then we sat around with Billy and Mark eating Chinese food and watching... well... it would be inappropriate to say what we were watching.

Saturday night was filled with ex-coworkers, one of my favorite dive bars, and the announcement that StumpsAround did an AMAZING job on the GMATS. Good work lady!

I woke up yesterday to a text informing me Casey was called into work early. That sucks. It's the guys freakin birthday and they call him in to a twelve hour shift. Sorry babe. So instead of seeing him I went to brunch with A. She invited me to see the hipster version of Much Ado About Nothing. It sounds like it would be horrible, but honestly it was pretty funny. When you think about it, this modernization is really obvious. Some of the actors were really exciting to watch. They had creative ideas that kept you guessing. Some of it was just silly nonsense that distracted you from the story. At intermission I got a text from Doodle offering me a free ticket to In the Heights which recently moved to Broadway. Of course I went. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this show but it is really different from what I was expecting. It's about living in Washington Heights and the main character is a bodega worker from the Dominican Republic that raps his songs. The music was great but the story line was odd. I didn't care though. I got too distracted by the nut next to me that started sobbing and then picking her nose.

So I didn't get a chance to write over the weekend but could you do me a favor please? Could you help end global violence against women? I know that sounds like a lot but just being aware helps.

Now, saying that causes me to think VERY inappropriate thoughts ;)

Sounds like you had a lot of fun this weekend though, some of it even appropriate...

And, to let you know, I will support that cause.

Great weekend. That's the kind of weekend that those of us out here in fly-over country just can't have here. I'll just have to live vicariously through you I guess.

Talking about nose picking (you can see where my mind gravitates to), I was once on a subway, and there was a retarded kid sitting at the seat in front of me, right angle (thats the way the seats were set up). Anyways, the whole trip he picked his nose and ate the boogeys right in front of me.

Hey, how do you make a kleenex dance? Put a little boogey in it!

Also, I'll help end global violence against women the way I'll end crime in general - The criminal has to spend 5 minutes in a room with me and my loiseville slugger. I know I know, violence with violence etc. etc, but it sure is an effective deterant for the Taiwanese!

Sounds like a great weekend. Mine was way too short. I'm ready for a vacation.

Have I ever told you how horrible the chinese food in KY is. This blog really makes me hungry lately. LOL!

Corky I have not tried Louisville Chinese yet! In Georgetown It is awesome!!!! I am going to want some sooner or later since i live in Louisville now, but I prefer to travel to Georgetown to get my fix!


Knight said...

R.E.H. - That was the plan. Got to keep the blog spiced up a bit. Thanks for supporting!

Single- I was really distracted by the nose picking. It was constant and for a long period of time. It wasn't that dark and she didn't seem to know. Thanks for checking out the cause.

Jay- ha, fly-over country. I like that. You might not have a crazy busy weekend of theater but you have that awesome mall!

Mike- I started to wonder if this lady was retarded. I would have let it go if she was. I like your ideas for crime fighting. Are you running for any sort of office?

Captain Corky- They are always too short. On Monday at the office it feels like I never left. By the way, the Chinese food wasn't all that great so you are not missing out.

Please tell me it was porn and that you guys were drinking and making stupid dialogs to go along with the "movie". Because I miss doing that. It was a gazillion times funnier than doing it to Spanish soap operas. :)

PORN!?!?!! Gross :)

I couldn't get over how many people were TALKING all through the show up in the cheap seats.

Reminded me of when I used to see movies in Harlem. Everybody talking to the screen. Used to make me wanna cut them!

Sounds like an awesome weekend, though. :o)

well... it would be inappropriate to say what we were watching.

You mean something like, "I was watching my sex DVD" ? Na, I just say it how it is.

Darla said...

I loved In the Heights. I did not love the crazy women on BOTH sides of you though.

You know what is REALLY weird? I had Chimay on Friday night as well. I think that's just odd, don't you?
