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)
