...but it wasn't me. I have just received word through the gay grapevine, also known as my phone, that Dale is still muy drunk and has already called out of work today. As I said to Dale when he called me this morning, "Oh Violet Blossom..." I tip my hat to Mr. Bartender, Mrs. Jesus and the Boy. Hopefully you all are fairing a little better.
As much as I'd love to recount the night via Dale's summation (would you rather I talk about my night of working on law school apps?), I'll leave that to him.
In approximately four hours, I'm peacing the bitch known as my office and headin' to Union Station. I'm going up to Philly for the weekend, for what should be a crazy good time. Here's the agenda:
Arrive in the 'burbs around 4, spend some QT with my mom, relax in front of the tv.
Tonight, I'm taking one of my closest friends out to dinner, because she recently got engaged. I'm giving her away in the wedding, and fortunately, with heels on, she'll have at least 6 inches on me. Those pictures will look great, and no, I do not have a Napoleon complex. Anywho, sush is on the menu and it'll be delightful. Possible drunken movie fest to follow.
Saturday I have some errands to run, including buying a gift for my sister and hopefully catching lunch with one of my buddies. While I wish I knew what I were getting for my sister, her birthday will give me an excuse to go to the GREATEST PLACE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, the King of Prussia mall. My love for this mall knows no bounds, and it is one of the things I miss most about Philadelphia (especially given the absolutely pathetic shopping in DC). Whether or not I will follow the rabbit even further into the cave known as credit card debt remains to be seen, but I am jonesing for a navy Phillies hat, and possibly some jeans... sneakers... new shirts... shit. Stay tuned.
Late Saturday afternoon, I'm hoping to hang out with some friends from high school who are either visitng as well, or have recently returned to Philly. I haven't seen some of them in years, so I'm very much looking forward to it. Not sure what we're doing, but I hope it involves Pat's, Geno's or Jim's.
Saturday night I'm going out with my sister and all of her friends to celebrate her bday. She's turning 28. I haven't spent my sister's birthday with her since I was in junior high. She was out of state for college the four years I was in high school, then upon her return, I booked for St. Louis for school. I don't know what happened last year, but I didn't go up to see her. Needless to say, I'm very excited. Given the success of "Chip's Fiesta de Cumpleanos" held this past May, expectations are high. My sister is also of the homosexual persuasion, so I'll get my gay fix as we hit up the gayborhood in Philly. Sisters anyone?
Sunday will wrap up my weekend with a lovely family brunch in Manayunk and watching the Eagles beat up on the Cowboys. Train back to DC Sunday evening, and it's time to go out with my roommate and her sister, who's visiting DC this weekend.
Be sure to have fun this weekend!
