Man I’ve got about a week left here in DC, and I don’t feel ready to leave. I feel like there is so much I need to get done. Ahhhhh! I need to finalize my storage plans, get my classes all squared away, and just feel ready to leave…And I don’t yet. The beauty of Colorado is looming over the horizon… Anyways, Saturday was a lot of fun! Laurie’s birthday bar crawl was a rocking time. Saturday afternoon around 5pm, I met up with her, Rob, Kelly, and her other birthday companion Saira. Both Saira & Laurie were dressed really nicely, and both looking like super models (for real!). Its nice hanging out with woman who are 5’10 :-) They both looked absolutely gorgeous! We started at Froggy Bottom Pub, then we walked to DuPont Circle to go to probably the best bar in the world, the Brickskeller (which carries over a thousand beers in stock!!!) where we all bought different drinks and played pass the cup so we could all try different types of beer (thank God no one was sick!) I drank some tasty stouts- I wish they were sold around here, aside from Guinness. I took a lot of fotos at the Brickskeller. From there we walked to Lauriel Plaza, that restaurant that I have ate with my family members a few times before. We get there and the place is packed, and there wait was around an hour. On top of the two stouts I had already drank, I had another two more mugs full of frozen margarita slush while waiting, and about this time I was feeling rather tipsy. I gorged myself on their homemade chips & salsa. We finally got seated and I ordered paella (yumm!) but I was so tipsy that I hardly remember eating it, and worse, I forgot to take the doggy bag with me :-( After dinner Rob lead us to a few different bars, which were rather packed, and eventually we found a bar that the girls could dance at. It was fun watching them dance to butt music. I just took pictures :-) Throughout the night Laurie was showing all the signs of interest in Rob, and I found no problem with that, it wasn’t my business, I feel as if she is the type of woman that plays the field without really playing people. If I were her, I do that as well, she can choose from any man she wants, so why not have fun with them all? It keeps the power balance in her favor. Yet I wasn’t expecting her to take my hand and put it on her soft leg during the cab ride home, I didn’t complain, maybe she was drunk too, but the small sign of physical affection was nice. I just thought it was funny because I felt that she was digging Rob the whole night. I’m not confused at all, just entertained, it was a good time. I slept soundly, but wishing I had a snuggle partner. Sunday, was a wash for the most part. One of those all too frequent days where I don’t really speak to anyone, not by my choosing per se, but simply because of my location and my situation. I spent much of the morning working on the photos from the night before, which turn out to be a lot of fun. There are some really choice shots of everyone. Taking pictures of Saira & Laurie makes me want to be a fashion photographer! I put them on my webpage and E-mailed the link the ladies. Around mid-day, I decided to go back to the park and do some yoga. It felt good, I just need to keep doing it and I desperately need to quit smoking. I think a fast is in order. I can’t wait! I’m thinking no food for three days would be a start. I need to start purifying myself. A little later on in the evening, I ordered some Papa Johns pizza, which I haven’t done all year. It was okay, tasted good and made a good Monday morning breakfast. I ended up staying up a lil too late on Monday night lollygagging my time on working on my preloader for my website- but I fixed it! And also slimmed down the page over 300K by taking off files that were not being used from the library, which I hadn’t realized were compiled. Yeah, 500K to 150K is so much better for the dialup kru. Monday turned out to be a lot like Sunday with the exception of the evening. Not much studying went on tho :- For some reason I can hardly get my ass to do it! Damn! I did however write the beginning of a press release for the Love Parade DC 04 and sent it to Adam, who responded later saying that he really really liked it. I’m excited. It looks like we might meet up later this week and discuss it. Monday evening I went to the new DC IMC space and attended my first meeting. I would have gone to one before, but I’ve always had class during the meetings. This meeting however was full of old news and dragged on forever. In a way I’m glad its the only meeting I’m going to attend until September, however I’d still like to be apart of the process of the IMC organization. I know when I return the place will be completely operational, which I find exciting. I look forward to volunteering my time there in the future. The space itself is really nice. I hope it allows the media collective to grow and prosper. After the meeting I rode my bike back home, wasted some time on the computer, and attempted to study for the final I have in a few hours. I’m not too worried about the exam tho. I think I’ll be able to BS pretty well, but its time to start studying for it. After the exam, its going to be nothing but remote sensing, which I hope to study with Laurie tonight. I made her a few CDs for her birthday and I want to give them to her. I spent a lot of time Sunday evening making sure that the mix sounded well and all the tracks flow well. I really hope she likes it because I doubt she realize the time I spent on them. I’m hoping she likes the ‘chill’ CD enough that she puts in when she’s got a man over <grin> To me its one of those CDs that’s nothing but chill sexy grooves. I hope she feels the same way. Anyways, its time to read about the general theory of relativity. I hope tonight is fun, studying hopefully not by myself. I want to study with her. Fingers crossed. We’ll see.
