Thursday I went with JMO, ACS, and a very special guest to the Gtown Young Alum happy hour, after a quick HH at work (Science Club was very cool - definitely gets my vote for a return). Surprisingly we knew no one! All class of 2005.... I guess we're old now. Oh well. Had some quality night time at the Cathedral afterwards. It's been awhile since I've done that.
Friday's plans got shuffled a bit. JAC came up from Charlottesville that night. I napped for about 3 hours so I could be prepared to go out (it's always so hard to actually get outta the house on Friday nights), but I decided to stay in instead. However, as soon as the pj's were on, contacts out, and opening movie credits were rolling, I got a phone call from some peeps at a club in Wheaton. I had promised them I'd go, but bailed at the last minute. They weren't having any of that, and they had a car come get me. I rolled outta bed and took off in the middle of the night. Turned out to be a hot night. I'm glad it went the way it did.
I slept til 12:30 on Saturday. What a bum! I guess I needed it though. The rest of the day I had no energy to do anything. I grabbed lunch with B in Alexandria and bought some stuff at the Crate outlet. I'm banned from clothes shopping, but I didn't say anything about housewares! It's all useful stuff anyway. We had a small crowd over on Saturday night - girl's night at Rita's.
Sunday was a huge BBQ at our house. I don't know how we seem to end up hosting these things every weekend, but it happens. We had a great spread, and thankfully some guys brought their huge gas grill. Cooking a full rack of ribs on a tiny hibachi wouldn't have worked out, I don't think. Also watched Everything is Illuminated. Watch it. Love it. Highly amusing. Many girls want to be carnal with me... because I'm such a premium dancer!
Welp, time to face the big birthday. I needed to do something to acknowledge and celebrate, so off to a National Park! I had a pretty norma...
