I'm starting this sober but I'm going to end it after a few drinks. Yup.
Today's dress is what I like to call my super hero or science fiction dress. It makes me feel like I have powers or that I can leap buildings or fly a spacecraft. It was one of the special designers featured at target, Jonathan Saunders. I remember ogling it for a long time before finally purchasing it.
I totally slept in like a big jerk. Oh well. I got up and made coffee and threw in a load of laundry before heading out to drop off a large portion of our closet to Circle Thrift. I bought two new dresses, a blue metal canister and a cute shelf for $13. Nice. I also saw this crazy ham holder that I was tempted to buy just for the box:
I then visited a kitty for work purposes and picked up four miniature dachshunds so I could bring them home and take care of them for a week. I thought this would be a quick process but I could not break down the three crates to bring with me. I finally succeeded after a lot of cursing and finger crushing. I hate when metal tries to defeat me. I finally got the four dogs and all of their gear into the car and got home. It feels like my childhood all over again :) So far one of them is kind of a meanie to the kitties so I will have to separate the species for a bit. Hopefully peace will be in everyone's future.
I came home and Rica was here to commandeer a bunch of music from my library. We were all starving having not eaten anything so we headed to Honeys Sit n' Eat for a late lunch/early dinner. We committed gluttony something fierce. I even brought half of my food home but it still hurt horribly. I suppose it doesn't help that I ate more of it a few hours later while watching Top Chef. Yeah, my favorite dude Kevin is still in it! I didn't want to sit around the house all night so we're going to meet up with some friends at Kung Fu Necktie for a drink.
Okay I just got home but I only had one beer so sorry no fun drunky blogs. Now I'm having some red wine. I wanted to drink red wine at the bar but they were out (dumb) and the jerky bartender was totally bitchy about it. I asked what kind of red wine they had and she sort of rolled her eyes and slurred, "I don't know, merlot." Like I was asking some crazy outlandish question of a bartender. She half heartedly searched for it and then told me they didn't have any. I opted for a beer and paid, thinking I was paying for Michael's drink too like a nice wife. I paid the $10 she asked for and tipped $2 even though I hated her. Michael looked at me like I was crazy for tipping $2 so I lipped him up with a duh, you tip $1 per drink. It turns out the bartender had already charged him for his drink and he had already tipped. What a dumbass. Wow, good job! I hate you stupid bartender. Your hair is rad but I hate everything else about you. Ugh. We only stayed for one drink so I opened a bottle of Pinot Noir when we got home. I liked it because it was called Pinot Evil. Cute. I wasn't thrilled to realize it was a twist off cap though. Oh wells. Time for bed.
