One thing of note, last night Sean and I went to Al Crostino on U Street for a lovely dinner last night. I know U St is a bit of a culinary wasteland (craptastic Crème is next door to Al Crostino, actually) but if you are around the "New U" (still as trash-laden as the old U) this place is worth a visit! I recommend the duck in a honey-balsamic sauce.
Well that’s all I have today - enjoy the weekend and see you all in September. Oh, and you can buy Britney Spear’s fried-chicken stained dress on Ebay. If you’re looking for an early holiday/Festivus gift for me, look no further.

And just because I can, here is a picture of my #2 "celebrity man I would sleep with," Mr. Paul Rudd. I realize I give way to much time to my #1, Anderson Cooper, so I'm putting Andy on the back-burner today in favor of this stud...

I would’ve taken vacation, but as this is still a somewhat new job, I’m waiting until autumn - Sean and I figured out a window in which we could both take a vacation together, which would be nice! We’ve been continuing to look at options and stuff, no decisions yet.

Two weekends ago I had my aunt, my cousin, and her new husband visit DC from Chicago - they were great to see, but they picked the weekend where it was 100°. High heat, tourists, it was not the best weekend in that regard. Though Sean and I did go to Old Town Alexandria on Sunday afternoon for some alone "us time" which we both really needed. Lately Sean’s been noticing my being stressed, and last weekend took me to the Shenandoah Valley to visit some little towns, wineries, and restaurants. I owe him a lot lately.
Oh I forgot to mention when the fabulous Margo had us over for dinner he made a desert which he named "The Margo." I forget how he made it, but I’ll post the recipe soon. And yes, there’s a desert he named "The Adam" as well.

A funny story I think I should share: Last week I was at home waiting for Sean and he was late coming into the city from VA, so I got bitchy, and left without him to meet friends for dinner and drinks. To make a long story short I was yelling at him giving him the "I don’t want to hear your excuses!" thing - and then he shows up in the Circle with a bouquet of flowers.
He was running late trying to find a florist still open to surprise me with flowers - while was mad at him. Yeah, I win boyfriend of the year for that one. Fortunately he forgives me and still loves me!
Now that it’s the hottest and nastiest part of summer, I’ve been going through a bit of "summer reading." I’m currently reading Transparent: Love, Family, and Living the T with Transgender Teenagers. It’s an interesting sociological look into a woman who lives and works with transgender youth in Los Angeles. It’s very eye-opening.
