When Can I Get Mine?
It really does seem as though these stars are getting easy to come by. By the way, Ms. Theron is on Oprah today.
Sorry, folks, that's all I got...Have a great weekend. Taste of Bethesda, anyone?
Last Thursday, I went to DC dot gov to file a service request for some potholes on Connecticut Ave to be fixed. Actually, there was one small pothole; the real problem was that there were loose manhole covers and a big steel plate, so when busses or trucks drive over them (which is every minute) the noise is like an explosion (no joke) right outside our bedroom window.
This morning, I woke up to the sound of jackhammers right outside my window. Really nice thing to wake up to after last night's wine binge... Anyway, turns out that the manhole covers are being fixed and the big steel plate is being tarred to the ground as we speak!! My service request is marked as "Closed." I am seriously shocked. Now let's just hope that their work actually makes the noise stop (haven't heard anything yet!!).
If it is going to be this easy, DC next needs to make online forms available for better schools and less crime...
Tonight at 8: Special Catch-Up (not to be confused with ketchup) episode to help all of you losers who LOST out on the 1st season.
Tonight at 9: The season premiere of the 2nd season of Lost!! I am so psyched. According to ABC: In the season premiere, one of the castaways is chosen to descend into the mysterious hatch, and Shannon stumbles upon a shockingly familiar face in the jungle. (Her former lover/step-brother, Boone?! Yummy!) I really wanna know what happens with Walt, Michael's son, who was abducted by pirates at the end of season 1. Some think those pirates are "the others," but I'm not so sure. Also, I wanna know why Hurley hasn't LOST a fucking pound?? I never see anyone eatin', and the gods know he woulda dropped a few LB's by now! Good news for you fans of hot chicks, there is at least one new babe on the island.
Following at 10:00: Invasion. Hmmm, gonna watch it, but not so sure what to expect. Let's hope it's good. "Mommy, you smell different."
The Chef/Master Carpenter, Chase, and I will be couching hard-core while drinking lots o' wine. I picked up some yummy 2002 reserve shiraz from Yellow Tail. (Click that link!! They have a BLOG!!) The bottle was signed by the owner of Casella Estate, John Casella (the big fella in the yellow tie in the menu bar when ya click on his name). He made his only wine-shop stop in the entire US at Cleveland Park Liquors. I didn't make it there, but Tony saved me a signed bottle and gave me a taste of his left-overs (left-over wine?? who are these people??).
I love me some Richard Branson, so when I spotted a bottle of Virgin Vines' (yes, that Virgin) Shiraz, I had to ask about it. I'll letcha know how it is, but reviews from the fellas at the shop are positive. The bottle and text on the back are pretty kick-ass, too (as is the web site!).
I'm so curious about the freud allegations!! And, WTF? Between this guy and Keith Urban, this rock & roll girl might have to go a little country... YUM!
Our celebration of Adams Morgan Day involved sitting on our asses drinking many beers inside Toledo Lounge. I'm sure the music and food were great, but I can't really claim to know...
