I survived!

After a long weekend of fun, it was back to the grind today. But first, here's the good-time stuff.

Sherrie arrived at 9:30 am Friday. We promptly high-tailed it to the biggest Half-Price Books in the land to ruffle through exotic cookbooks and other such goodies. I actually walked out without buying anything, which could well be a first. After that we tooled around Dallas a bit and headed to G-vegas for some Tex-Mex. Sherrie approved of the cuisine, which made me happy, and we came back to my house. She napped, I swam, I napped, we both woke up and had a House, MD mini-thon. She's thinking of buying the series! Now that I've converted her I should receive my set of steak knives in the mail any time.

Saturday was a playdate with Elise. We all went to the Dallas Museum of Art, then to Cuba Libre for a sassy spicy lunch (I'm now lustily in love with Mojitos), then to Deep Ellum to ooh and ahhh at the complete lack of anything fun to do in the daytime (what the fuck happened to all the weird shops? HUH?), then to Sam Moon to fight some bitches for some purses, and finally to the Cheesecake Factory for dessert with the Gypsy Poet, Wenchie, and Wenchie's brother. A good time was had by all--because what makes a day better than Dulce de Leche cheesecake and a peach bellini?

Sunday was pretty low key. Back to TaMolly's for more Tex-Mex, we saw Pirates of the Caribbean: The Dead Man's Chest, and chilled around the house before sacking out while watching more House.

It was good to reminisce and we have a plan to celebrate my Master's degree next summer with a trip to Toronto! Woot!

Today was the first day of the children's lit/film class. It's going to be a good time. I talked a bit today, but tomorrow's my day to introduce film terms and such. Must jet so I can make a few more notes and watch a movie before bed (Snow White: Tale of Terror).

Oh, and I feel obligated to report that the green heels were a good fit today. With the exception of one small blister on the bottom of my left foot. A small price to pay for fuckin' awesome shoes. I bought some that are even sexier this weekend at the Nine West outlet. Pics later perhaps.

Night bloggy peeps...I missed you all so....

Listening: "Oceano"...Josh Groban (because there's something sexy about curly-headed men singing in Italian)


  1. Sounds like a terrific weekend!

  2. P.S. It's safe back in the non-gf zone again. I've eliminated the Hoff.

  3. I'm so envious. There's nothing to do here.

  4. Sounds like you had a blast! Makes me want to go visit!

  5. Sounds like a great weekend! What did you think of Pirates?

  6. Non, WHEW! Glad to know it's a Hoff-free zone. It was a good weekend. A very good time.

    Kat, I'm sorry. I can safely say that all there is to do around here involves money or food. And I have no money and I don't need any more food!

    Heather, any time! Come on down!

    Kitty, I LOOOVED Pirates. It was fantastic. However, I warn you, I haven't seen the first one so I have nothing to compare to. Thesis Director loaned me the first one, so I hope I get to watch it tonight.

  7. Sounds like a fun time. Gotta love the Cheesecake Factory - yum!

    Can ya email me? It's in my profile.

  8. I don't think you could get me out of a store named "Half-Price Books." We've lost a lot of used and small bookstores here in the last fifteen years. Thank goodness The Strand still stands.

    Sounds like you had a good weekend of TV watching, swimming and eating. Really, is that all weekends were made for?

  9. The Strand. Just thinking of it is like porn to me.

    Cheesecake is good too.

  10. No doesn't get much better than The Cheesecake Factory! And beyond the cheesecake I love their fish tacos.

    Cold, it was absolutely, positively divine.

    X, one of my life-long dreams is to rape the Strand. I know I'd love that place. And if you ever make it this way I'll show you the big Half-Price. I affectionately call it "The Motherland."

    Dale, same here. I'm gettin' moist just thinkin' about it.

  11. We need to plan an espadrille-wearing day...

  12. yes, you looked very pretty and professional on Monday.

  13. Elise, yes we do. I'm thinking Monday.

    Beth, thank you velly much, dahling. I had your wicked fashion sense in mind while clothes shopping this summer.

  14. i assume you are refering to the one on Northwesst Highway? Huge. I like the one on Preston that I can walk to.... it's a beautiful thing.

  15. we've been such good book girls! No buying just reading!

  16. Cold, I haven't been to the one on Preston! How does it compare to NW Highway?

  17. Amanda, I wish that was true. I haven't been reading!!! Hopefully things will settle a bit with this class I'm teaching and I can get back to some reading. *sigh*


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Blogger has been a beast lately, so I hope you do not have any troubles leaving your thoughts.
