Football, Beer, Bar Food

So, I didn’t get any of the cleaning done that I wanted to over the weekend, but I did do laundry on Friday night.  I know, I’m so out of control.  I was almost hoping our football game on Saturday afternoon would be cancelled and I’d have a chance to actually clean.  It wasn’t, instead I ran around for an hour in a mud pit trying not to break my knee in half.  We lost our game.

After the exhausting ass kicking only two things sounded good to me, beer and bar food, so Adrienne and I headed to our league sponsored bar to hang out for a bit.  Two $2.50 Miller Lights and a plate of chicken nachos later, I was ready fora nap, instead we bought Red Bulls and went home to clean up before heading out for the rest of the night.

Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous day with promise of turning into a beautiful fall night, so we went over to Whitlows to hang on the rooftop and watch the Caps game.  Unfortunately Adrienne and I were accosted almost immediately by two young men who couldn’t take a hint and were neither of our types, even if I was single.  Some gems from the evening:

  • Guy 1 referring to his future ex-wife while talking to Adrienne
  • Guy 2 trying to get down on one knee and kiss my hand. Please do not touch me
  • Repeatedly telling me how my grey and orange sweater matches my eyes. My eyes are blue.
  • Complimenting my eyebrows and then trying to touch them. Again, please do not touch me
  • Deciding my sweater resembles Freddy Kreuger’s. Yeah, I also kill people while they sleep. Watch out.
  • If you are repeatedly asking us why we’re not talkative and just staring over your shoulders at the TV, just go away.

Adrienne and I eventually had enough and made a swift departure with our friend Ricky to head downtown to meet up with our friends who were at the Caps game.  Luckily, that part of the night was much more fun, and when I finally face planted in my bed at 2 am I was beat.

Yesterday I got my grocery shopping done for the week before collapsing on the couch for the remainder of the day.  My late night and inability to sleep in did not mix well and I was exhausted.  Darren called at one point and told me I sounded like shit.  Thanks hun, I appreciate it, haha.  Here’s to hoping this four-day week goes by quickly, because I am anxiously awaiting 5:15 pm on Thursday night when my boo gets here!

What are the worst pick-up lines you’ve ever heard?

It’s Fall Y’all

Weeeeeeeee, it’s Friday and I’m wearing boots and a sweater.  All is right in the world :).

Yesterday went by relatively painlessly.  I made it through a lunch meeting without chowing down on the sandwich tray and plethora of chips provided, and got an appropriate amount of work done.  Of course, just as I was getting ready to shut down and head out to meet Steph for dinner, I got pulled into an “emergency”.  An hour later I was still sitting at my desk re-doing work I’d already done once, because people aren’t smart enough to use the most recent copy of a document when making edits.  Poor Steph was left to fend for herself at Dogfish Head downing beers while she waited for me.  I think she was ok with that though.

Once I finally got there, we quickly made our way to a table, ordered me a beer (Punkin ale draft obviously) and got to chatting.  Four and a half hours later, I decided that it was probably high time I head back to Virginia.  I’m sure we could have kept chatting for hours more, but it was a week night and I needed to be in my bed by 11 pm or I would have died today.

There are a crap ton of errands to run after work today to prepare for our “family day” tomorrow, and then of course food prep.  I’m hoping my family arrives early enough to treat me to dinner, but we’ll see what time they end up leaving PA, how monstrous traffic is, and what time they finally arrive.

Happy Friday! What are you all up to this weekend? Have a great one!

Charm City!

So shortly after I posted on Friday, both the roommates bailed on our Baltimore trip.  We’d already told Keith we were coming, and I still wanted to go, so I sucked it up and went by myself.  A quick hour drive later and Saturday morning and I was there ready for some fun.

Keith and I started our day with some lunch in Fells Point, where we kicked off the holiday weekend with multiple lunchtime beers.  A little after lunch time, more of our friends found their way to Charm City, and the group of us headed over to the Bay Cafe, which was a little island paradise in the middle of the city.

That stage was getting set up for the bikini contest later.  Unfortunately we left before it started, I really think I could have won us some prize money.  Or at least fallen off the stage and given everyone some good laughs.

Some pretty ladies enjoying the sun, sand, and palm trees.  Can’t beat that.

The boys that were lucky enough to enjoy our company all day.  We eventually ended up leaving Bay Cafe only to get ourselves ready for another tiki bar on the water, and a live performance.  Apparently this summer is the summer of cover bands for me, and Saturday night, we trekked up to Wild Duck Cafe to see the Amish Outlaws perform.

We arrived just as the sun was starting to set over the water and the plethora of sailboats.  I would like one please.  I wasn’t sure what to initially expect, but then they opened up with Lady Gaga and I was pretty sure it would at least be an entertaining night.

There was lots of dancing around and singing, and also many buckets of beer.  I love buckets of beer, seriously.  We had a great time and actually ended up leaving before their final set was over.  The 30 minute drive back to Baltimore was enough to put everyone to sleep, and I was out cold on Keith’s couch moments after stuffing some food in my face.

Sunday morning I was woken up by KJ texting me from his room upstairs with “Sunday Fundaaaay”. My head initially screamed in protest, but after a shower and some water I was ready for brunch and for Sunday Funday to begin.  Brunch was delicious, as was the Belini I enjoyed during it.  After begging KJ for an iced coffee post brunch, I was ready to start drinking again an hour or so later.  Seriously, I don’t want to even think about how many beers I drank over the weekend.

Sunday Funday continued with a rooftop BBQ in Canton, where I melted, and occasionally retreated inside to the Buffalo Chicken dip and A/C.  After a little while at the BBQ, it was time to move on again, this time back to the bars in Fells Point.  I was getting tired and full of beer at this point, but still managed to school some boys in darts before trying to make the switch to vodka sodas and failing.  Keith was on the same page as I was, and I once again found myself passed out very quickly after walking in the front door.

Thanks for an awesome weekend in Charm City KJ!  Now I only have one word for you, Seacrets.  I made it back to Arlington yesterday around 11, and then only left my house when I needed to get food.  I didn’t go to any BBQs, and I didn’t watch any fireworks, but I am more than ok with that.  I was way too tired to move.  Now it’s back to work, blah, and the countdown until my birthday! I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend!
