Wow, I've been even more absent than usual on here. I'm out of excuses...I've just been busy, and when I'm not busy I am too tried to update. So, I will try my best and get my adoring audience up to speed.
My work life has been hectic - the NRCA awards dinner at the Grand Hyatt last Wednesday night, and the preperation leading up to that, among other work projects. I am taking two of my three weeks vacation now (they won't carry over into the new year) and plus the week the office is closed for the holidays means THREE, read em, 3 back-to-back weeks of vacation!!!
I will thouroughly enjoy not dealing with any work drama. Now my only dilemma is what to do and/or where to go. Still working on that, as I hadn't really planned this out ahead of time.
Elsewhere in my life is the usual litany of bars and clubs, which I will spare you since it starts to sound redudant after awhile. But I will mention that this Friday I went with friends to a Martha's Table fundraiser (they help feed the homeless of DC) at the Mt. Pleasant Street neighborhood bar, Tonic. I rarely venture into the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood, even though it's right around the corner from Adams Morgan. After that I went to a former co-worker's going away party, before she leaves for Romania, at a place in Arlington called Gua-Rapo. It was a nice place, met a lot of Eastern Europeans. Took the metro back into the city and finished out with drinks at the bar of Le Pigalle. The bartenders there are starting to know my drink (which, if you'd like to know, is a blueberry Stoli and soda).
