Conference: GREAT! Learned a ton. More than a ton. (Be sure to use Google’s Advanced Search page. Check out the results when you just search the .edu domain!)
Alamo Drafthouse: FUN! Falisha described the ‘80s Power Ballad Sing-along as the most fun she’s had in ages. Then on Friday night, we were also the FIRST EVER people in the stairwell to see Master Pancake Theater’s “maiden voyage” (*snork*) as they made sport of the movie Titanic! Here’s the beer they handed us for being the first customers in line…
Kreuz Market: DELICIOUS! Bethany and Falisha watched me go Crazy Carnivore Cavewoman on the brisket & jalapeno cheese sausage while they split a bag of Cheetohs. They think Kreuz Market has too many rules (see sign).
Love Tester: INACCURATE! The thing the girls liked best about Kreuz’s was the Love Meter on the way out the door. Falisha scored a WILD, Bethany was branded HARMLESS--and the librarian was rated UNCONTROLLABLE. (Insert hilarious laughter here…)
The outlets: TOLERABLE! I hate shopping more than some of the MEN I saw reveling in the materialistic frenzy of consumerism (or is it “consumerasm”?).
Bethany’s apartment: CUTE! We had so much fun watching SNL on tv and DVDs of The Office…thank you to Falisha for remembering to pack those. We laughed until we cried…
My girls: SPECTACULAR! They aren’t just sweet. Or just funny. They are simply wonderful. This morning, they surprised me with a hilarious breakfast in bed…complete with their own rules and the world’s worst coffee and little characters they built out of toothpicks and fruit and a paper sombrero…Miguel and Pancho were delicious, btw.
The trip home: RELAXING! The long drive from San Marcos allowed me to get to CD #5 of The Cry of the Icemark, and the non-fat/sugar-free Cinnamon Dolce latte I picked up in Brownwood kept me awake all the way to Abilene. I got back too late to make it to church at 5:00…oh, and my makeup is still in San Marcos! (I rounded up enough to get to work tomorrow… another tube of foundation and one brown eyeliner. There’s no eyebrow pencil or lip liner. No eyelid shadow primer, either, but that’s okay since I don’t have any eye shadow to use, anyway!) ;-)
The Grammy Awards: FANTASTIC! Anyone who knew me in the ‘80s will verify how much I loved The Police. It was so cool to see them REUNITED to open the awards show tonight!! Here’s hoping they will take this reunion on tour this summer! (This whole weekend has been a celebration of the 1980s, now that I think about it--the Power Ballads and The Police and two special girls born in the Aprils of 1984 and 1987…)
