Just a quick update tonight, my lovies. It's already getting a bit late, and I'm on my six and a half year old laptop, which, needless to say, is slow as molasses. I really should join the year 2010 and get a new one, but whatever.
Anyway, I have had the most lovely weekend, the highlight of which involved lots and lots of...EATING! The San Francisco Street Food Festival was Saturday, and I decided to meet my friend Pat there for some power snacking. Pat already had been there for several hours by the time I arrived a little after 4 p.m., so once I found him, we headed straight to the beer and wine garden (also known as a few square feet of fenced off pavement) for rum cocktails and Tecate. He soon left for a pinball competition (oh, that's right), but I stayed and tried more delicacies, including Cuban tri-tip, spicy pork sausage, a bacon wrapped hot dog and funnel cake.
Keep in mind, I didn't claim this was the San Francisco Health Food Festival.
After getting my fill of street food, I walked to lovely 22nd Street to meet Valerie and Kevin at Cava 22, where we chatted and sang Beatles songs to each other over margaritas. Not bad for a Saturday evening before 9 p.m.
Today was all about chores, working out and vocal exercises, and soon I will be spending an hour with my TV boyfriend Don Draper. Yes, I know he's not exactly the most honorable man I could love, but here's a secret: he's a TV character and totally fictional. To that end, I think it's okay to proclaim him my boyfriend. I promise you, I will try not to date any real life Don Drapers. Because frankly, I already have, and it isn't very interesting.
Tomorrow begins another work week and another Monday evening of singing songs. I don't know how you feel about Mondays, but if they give you even the slightest of the blues, I highly recommend belting a few karaoke songs every week. Your Monday will never know what hit it.
