My dream consists of more 3 day weekends. How sad am I that this one is coming to an end? Very, very sad.
Yesterday morning I drove out to LA for my very first blog party (organized by everyone's favorite monkey)! I sailed along listening to my iPod, and I was really pleased that there was little to no traffic. I was the first to arrive at the very crowded John O'Groat's, and I was happy to see that the monkey showed up soon after. She acted as a very gracious host and introduced me to everyone. It was my first time meeting everyone, and I must confess that I felt extremely overwhelmed and sometimes out of place. I am not normally a shy person, except in certain situations. Yesterday was one of those situations, but I still had a really good time and was happy to finally see everyone in the flesh, especially those who comment on my blog regularly or talk to me online or through email (you know who you are!).
There was lots of food, lots of talking, lots of cameras being whipped out. I find that this highly journalistical [sic] picture tells the story of the day.
But this one is also good.
The rest of the day was spent hanging around the house watching the third season of Veronica Mars. I have to say that I am pretty disappointed in the third (and final) season. Kristen Bell is not nearly as likeable this season. The editing sucks, and the plotlines are not as compelling. But whatever, it's still better than the average show.
Today Mandy and I went out with the intent of finding a dress for me to wear in her wedding (the only criteria is that it has to be black), going to her wedding site to scope out possibilities for decorations, and getting pedicures. We got the pedicures, but everything else was a bust. Oh well, we still got some sisterly time together.
Yes, my toenails are blue.
I have set the date for Mandy's shower for March 29. I am really damn excited about planning it, because it's not going to be your ordinary bridal shower. Unfortunately, I can't reveal anything here, as Mandy reads my blog. But hopefully it will turn out as awesome as it is turning out to be in my head. And I only have the monkey to thank for giving me the idea (although I've modified it some).
And this post has now come full circle, beginning and ending with the monkey. That can only mean one thing: a conclusion.
