Four Day weekend

Twas a full, four-day weekend, that is true. On Thursday we hopped in the rental car and drove to NYC. We arrived at the Chelsea hotel at about midnight, checked in, gave them our car and walked to the diner around the corner. I had some pancakes and Toby ate a veggie burger. We went to bed. I woke up around 8 am and headed to XB to work for the day. It was great being there again. I was sort of sad all day actually. It was great seeing them all again. I was met with a very warm welcome, which sort of surprised me. I worked from about 8:30 until about 9 p.m. and then headed back to the hotel to meet Toby for a movie. We saw 8 Mile that evening. And, I shit you not, it was good. I enjoyed it so much. Yeah, it’s a similar story to movies like Rocky, but so much fun. I could listen to that cracker rap for hours without getting bored. You get to see his butt. There’s a pretty hot sex scene. The rapping (as I mentioned) was amazing. Good stuff. Go see.
We woke up Saturday and had breakfast with Chandler at Kate’s downtown. Yummy. At around 1 p.m. we headed for Philly to see Nico and George. And then exit 13A happened. 13A, for those of you familiar with the Jersey Turnpike, is home of IKEA. Toby hadn’t been to IKEA before so we stopped. I figured we’d peruse for a bit and head out. IKEA takes a while. I hadn’t realize how long. It’s huge and you do a lot of it yourself. So I guess it makes sense. I got a little antsy and worried that Nico would be waiting so we left before picking too much up. We arrived in Philly around 6 and had Japanese for dinner in downtown Philly. Excellent meal. Great talk. Good people.
We got back to DC around 12:00 a.m. and went to bed. Sunday we took the rental car and headed to IKEA in Virginia where we spent 700 bucks and left. We finally bought a bed frame. It’s super nice. It delivers on Wednesday. We got myself a desk and some rugs and about 400 more dollars worth of (surprisingly) necessary items. Good time.
I returned the car before six. Left my coat in the backseat. Headed home for homemade veggie burgers and fries. We put together the furniture with a little help from our friend and neighbor, Jason. And now, this morning, I am here. Home for the day getting ready (mentally) for work tomorrow. I have many pictures of our stay in the Chelsea Hotel and a story to tell for each but my Elph camera cord is at the office and I’m at home today, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. :]
What did you do?

  6. Found out my ex got engaged on Friday. Kinda felt like I got punched in the gut. But, I got
    a nice little book called “I love my hair” and it’s made me feel better in the time being. ;)

  7. Bought a new igloo dog house for CJ, dismantled the old rotted dog house, cleaned up the back yard a bit, took pictures of mushrooms and other fungus, wondered if I needed a better hobby…

  8. I did just see 8 mile last night (we wanted to avoid the crowds from the weekend). So so good. I didn’t understand why the little ho, Brittney Murphy, kept showing up even though she cheated on him. And why he didn’t tell her off or tell her to not hang around him. I thought he looked so cute, but I wish he smiled just once.

    He has a nice ass. I wonder who’s job it was to powder it before that scene. I’m so weird.

  9. I said the same thing about Brittney. I was all like “FUCK THAT BITCH” and toby was all like “well, he beat up that guy” And I was all like “That ho, he should have told her to fuck off.”

    That was odd, I thought.
