We had an absolutely ridiculous amount of parties, guests, and mayhem filling every second of the weekend--it's nice to be at work and just get away from it all...kidding! Would seriously like to disappear into the North Georgia mountains next friday and bond with the campfire and a bottle of wine...we'll see.
On friday, had a buddy of Tavo's come down and we all went to a Burlesque party--wasn't quite sure how to dress. The boys dressed like waiters and I just pulled out a super short skirt and a see through black shirt--I was going for a cute little vixen type character but ended up looking more like Nancy.
But that's okay, I made it work anyways.
Rock on! I'm off to find Sluggo.
On Saturday, we had heap big brekkie of eggs and potatoes--in bed. It was laundry day so just hung around in bed, eating and drinking coffee until noon when we decided to take a walk. Around Atlantic Station. Yeah, couldn't help it--had to experience odd fake town experience. Went to stores and tried on clothes, then decided to hit up a movie. Good god almighty--matinée student passes are $8.50 each!! We watched Superbad...then decided to sneak into Resident Evil: Extinction. Oh my god I about had a heart attack every two minutes in that movie. Tavo loved it. I have come to a conclusion that Milla Jovovich is extremely good looking and zombies are really scary.
After that, went to a going away party for Tavo's buddy who's headed to Iraq as a contractor--scary, but he'll be back in 6 months so we'll keep him in our thoughts! Then went BACK to the evil Atlantic Station to attend an engagement party...and we were turned down at the door. Too scummy to get in. Sheeze! So, went home, got all gussied up, came back to have the doorman tell us, "we stopped letting people in 5 minutes ago." WTF--dude, you just saw us leave 30 minutes ago, let us in! One of the men informed us that if we slipped him a "dub" we would get in just fine. "Oh HELL NO. I'm not giving him ANY kind of money" was my response.

Door man replied, "well, I guess you don't want to get in then." and scurried back inside the strip mall.
(never go to the hot new bowling alley/bar that a certain hollywood celeb has funded--it's corrupt as hell)
Sunday had another stellar brekkie and cleaned like madmen. Laundry, toilets, floors, swept the deck even--cleaned our place has been since I've lived there! Went out for a beer and to view houses with some friends, came back and had snacks. Then went to another friend's new restaurant and salivated over the menu. Do check out Calavino's if you happen to be in Atlanta--it is very nice! Pics, etc. on http://calavinosatoakhurst.com/
Got home at 2 am and stumbled to bed. ahh, what a great weekend!
