Friday Five

It's Friday, and time for Five random thoughts/musings that are running through my head.....

1). I'm uber super duper proud of my mom who's volunteered to be one of several physicians in the D.C. area who are willing to take care of refugees that have come to our fair haven free of charge. This is going to mean thousands of dollars of medicines and supplies that she and her practice will be donating. She's the bestest!!! and she was named as "a local doctor" by WaPo at her request so it doesn't look like a PR move, so snaps to mommy!!

2). I had a dream last night that I was being shot at after having had coffee with Kelly Osbourne. Now I don't ever watch "the Osbournes" nor do I really like any of Kelly's music, I'm sorry left field what? Oh and the person who was shooting at me turned out to be Chip, he missed don't worry and in my dream he was trying to mug me and ended up dying later on due to exposure.... weird huh.

3). The Gay Rodeo is in town, and it's taking place about 15 minutes from my parents' house where I am house sitting for a week. Some phrases that I'm sure will be overused include: "Ride em cowboy!!", " wow you're really good at hog tieing", "That horse aint got nothing on you" and so on and so forth. The jury is still out at this point as to whether or not I'll take my doggy to the fairgrounds to check it out, however I'm leaning towards no because the most rugged thing in my wardrobe is my maroon polo shirt and retro ski vest from FCUK, and that combined with a blonde cocker spaniel/poodle named Chloe who only has Lily Pulitzer leashes and collars, yeah I'm gonna go ahead and say sore thumb, stick out much?

4). I just realized that this weekend will mark the first weekend since July where Chip and I are not road-tripping it to a destination that is not the District of Corruption! A little sad yes but I honestly need the rest which is why my plans for this weekend include:-Dinner with crazy grandpa and great aunt crazy (sushi dinner and asking about when I'm going to get married....fun) p.s. I tried to explain the gay thing to them and I don't think they understand, maybe it's an asian thing.-Spa and gym goodness saturday.... followed by lounging and blockbuster loving for the following week!!!!

5). A hearty guffaw to my godmother and godcousin who, while shopping for jewelery with my mom last weekend pulled over on wisconsin ave. after having brunch at the club so my godcousin who's in her late 20's and has a child, could throw up from having a massive hangover that she tried to nurse with mimosas and bloody mary's........ needless to stay she stayed in the car while mom and god-mom went and tried on the sparklies......

Also... Since Chip decided to snark me on IM's this morning, here's a pearl from my favorite sugar snap....
Chip:I read this on a blog and thought of you (This is the Blog)
Chip: Do remind me to start a 'Help Feed the Starving MW Nightlife Coverboy of the Week' fundraising drive. Damn, you boys go eat a sandwich or two!

Yay Weekend.... Yay House-sitting.... Yay going for runs with Chloe..... Yay/Boo for being socially M.I.A. for a week..... but momma needs the rest.... I've got a set of Louis Vuitton under my eyes like you wouldn't believe.

Refugees?

"Adamantly, sometimes angrily, the folk who fled a drowned New Orleans are insisting that they not be labeled "refugees."

So intense has their annoyance gotten that President Bush mentioned it Tuesday after a stop in Baton Rouge. "You know, there's a debate here about refugees," he said from the White House. "Let me tell you my attitude ... The people we're talking about are not refugees. They are Americans."

MPL, while I understand that these people don't want to be considered fleeing because of persecution and would rather be considered simply survivors.... A refugee does imply one who seeks refuge due to an event or problem, I think that's pretty appropriate in this case don't you?

I would shoot myself if I were having coffee with Kelly Osbourne.

Yay for your mom! It's great to hear about people personally doing something to help the Hurricane Katrina folks out.

Dale said...

AUA: Me too! I would have MUCH rather preferred Jude Law....

Lucy: Thanks! one of the few times I'm proud of my parents rather than embarassed!

Was just sayin'... ;)

MPL: didn't mean to come across as bitchy... I was at a meeting a couple weeks ago and I was SUPPOSED to be there to talk about AIDS youth outreach programs but instead everyone else there was hung up on how uncomfortable they felt with the term asian....I nearly puked.

So getting hung up on semantics is a pet peeve of mine.

mmmmm........ Jude Law. I don't care how big (or not) his pecker is, dude is SMOKIN.
