Kind of had a hellish weekend, don’t want to post about that part of it. But parts of it were okay. George and I went to dinner with his friends Andy and Linda to this delicious (but slooooooowwwww) Jamaican restaurant. I had a really good stuffed acorn squash. Mmmmm. After that, we went to their house, which is gorgeous. Really old. Then to the pub after that. Had some drinks.
Saturday, George and I went to breakfast. Then we walked a little around old Gretna, which is really quite cute. It was really foggy. I had things to do so I dropped him off at Best Buy, where he bought a laptop. I got some books from Barnes & Noble (last time I get to use my discount?) and ran some errands. Went home, cleaned a little, then went out with some girls from the neighborhood, for a bachelorette party. Meanwhile the guys were doing the bachelor party.
We went to 360, a club at the top of the World Trade Center, but it was so foggy, we couldn’t see anything. But it spins, which is also cool. Every so often, we’d find ourselves next to the bar. Or the bathrooms. Or the dancefloor. Or the bar again. It was fun. Then we went to (urgh) Coyote Ugly, then walked down Bourbon Street, split a Lucky Dog with Ross, went to the Bourbon Pub, danced for about two seconds, then went and sat on the balcony with Polly. The boys met up with us shortly thereafter, and thankfully, I got to go home.
Sunday, everyone was hungover, but we had a good turnout for my APMS day. I showed “Mr Smith Goes to Washington” which went over pretty well. Made delicious lasagne. Felt like total crap. But weekend (for reasons I won’t go into here) was redeemed by the end of the night. Felt much better.
Yesterday George and I went to have Vietnamese for dinner. I think it’s my new favorite cuisine. God, the vermicelli bowls. I could eat them for every meal. But then, we stopped at the pub to get a drink and Ross and Raul were having a sort of dinner party across the street, and they insisted we come over, so we had to eat a little more. Ah well. Raul’s such a good cook. It wasn’t a huge sacrifice!
Tonight I’m going to work out with Terry. I’m excited. I hope we can make a habit of this. I’m all about the cheap gym.
