Tid Bits

At Russia House last night for a Team Cuttler event-

The Mack: You've spilled the majority of your drink on the ground you realize.
Me: Ooops. The thing is, the vodka in this is so good that I know it's actually in there, but I can't taste it one bit. I feel it though.

Other comments on the evening? Um, the electric violinist playing hip music was odd and rivet ting all at the same time.

It was Peter's birthday so we had a cake for him. I had 4 options for his cake- a Cars themed one, a Spiderman one, a dragonfly shaped one, or one with those weird little balloons all over it. I found one of those singing cards that sang "At the Car Wash," so his cake had a little race car with eyes on it. Then, I got random guys in the bar he didn't know to sign the card for him. The responses were hilarious- "I want to have your babies. -Jason." "Man, 27 is old! We've had great times man. Your bud, Bob." "You're awesome! Awesome! -Frank" Peter didn't think it was quite as funny, but I cracked myself up.


MF, the Mack, Brando and I left with PC (oh, just realized his initials are PC, too funny) to go to his apartment building's rooftop party and barbecue. We got really into riding in the back of PC's convertible and took like 20 pictures of ourselves with the wind in our hair.



We expected something makeshift, but instead found a live band and 3 barbecues with a perfect view of the Washington Monument. The Mack and MF were able to convince the band to play Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone" while they sang along. After that climax to the evening, we had no other choice but to head home. Well, and because the martinis hit me pretty hard (luckily. Considering they were a million dollars each.)

gchat this morning:

Sam: OMG! Rock on!

The Decatur House will open a new exhibition June 8, 2007 on loan from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum entitled,Gifts from the World to the White House: Caroline Kennedy’s Doll Collection (1961-1963).

The exhibit displays over 70 dolls from 30 countries given to Caroline Kennedy between 1961 and 1963. Italy’s Prime Minister Amintore Fanfani, Côte d’Ivoire’s first President, Felix Houphouet-Boigny, India’s Indira Gandhi, Monaco’s Princess Grace, and France’s President and Madame de Gaulle, all presented dolls as state gifts, while others came from ordinary foreign citizens who were captivated by the youthful Kennedy Family.

Brando: that is so you.

Sam: I am so excited. Jackie O., dolls, antiques. It's like my version of porn.
Shakespeare for All on Wednesday Night.
Sorry, I'm behind on blogging lately. Shakespeare for All was awesome. Sassy got tickets for District Belle and I to Love's Labour Lost. We sat outside in the Carter Barron Amphitheater and watched the actors speak in Elizabethan tongues dressed in 1960s fashion (channeling the Beatles documented relationship with the Maharishi). Love's Labour Lost is definitely the type of Shakespeare play one should watch in an outdoor amphitheater. I think a drama would be hard to sit through. Incidentally, bug spray is a necessity. I was attacked alive even though I sprayed myself 700 times.
Cool Websites I was forwarded:
http://www.eccentricamerica.com/. I'm so all over the Roadkill Cook-Off in West Virginia September 29th.
http://www.driveintheater.com/. Unfortunately, the closest theater to DC is an hour and a half. Oh well, Annie Hall is July 16th at Screen on the Green. Woohoo!
Ciao. Have a fantastic weekend.
