this is going to be abbreviated due to exhaustion.

1. friday celebrated the birth of bronzemountain. with appletinis. was utterly toasted. got a massage, though, which was miraculous.

2. saturday i hit the streets of dc but not before getting in a fight with jack about whether to metro or drive. it all worked out for the best but gosh, did i get mad. we met up with keryx and had thai and just sat around outdoors a bit and chatted. i am potentially the worst dc hostess ever though as i think at this point most guests know more about the place than i do.

3. after that i went to a mary kay party. let's let that sink in shall we? yes, a mary kay party. jack's sister's friend was very dedicated in her salesmanship and i appreciate that she was a very nice person and very earnest but i find a few fundamental things about mary kay flawed. (this may just be the understatement of the century.) as i could not think of a way to impart this without being rude, i just practiced some tonglen and let it go. and bought some lipliner and soothing eye cream. i felt like i had to, you know? anyways this girl was incredibly nice. you would have bought some lip liner too.

4. bizarrojack implemented a new facial hair plan for himself, which you can see in all its glory over at his latest entry. it's hot although i keep calling him james hetfield.

5. sunday we spent all day playing world of warcraft. a kid from down the street offered to mow our lawn. i have been waiting ALL SUMMER for this. go kid! now if he would just weed the beds. he totally lowballed us on the price. i was getting 20 dollar bills for mowing the lawn 20 years ago kid.

6. i found a desk that will satisfy me. at jack's sister's place! ikea just didn't have it on the website.

7. cat puked on the bed with me in it this morning. so mad. and tired.

You live in PG County now. People were fighting me over $10, 20 years ago.

I don't mean literally "fighting," of course. I mean, declaring it overly greedy on my part and that having their lawns mowed should cost less.

Your lawn is pretty small, too, eh?

I figured. I think I'm a tad spoiled when it comes to money stuff, my parents were very generous and at the least gave me $20 whenever I'd do ours. But yes, our lawn is approximately the size of a postage stamp. Nonetheless it seems like it's lots of work. :)

Dammit, Jack totally beat me to my "fat Morgan Spurlock" thing, so now I completely can't do it 'cos of the geographical proximity an' shit.

Well, actually we have such a relatively small overlap in who we know, you could make up a story about how you mentioned the idea to me and that you told me you were planning on doing your facial hair that way, so I would have been copying you; I'd of course stick to my story that I was already thinking about it anyway, and there would be an unsettled dispute. No one would be able to squarely place the burden of originality on either of us. Or you could pretend that you didn't see my post. I would cooperate by deleting this message so that TEH INTARNUTS would not have evidence.

we certainly can't have two "asshole"s within a mile of each other.

so it's time for the mutton chops sweetie.

DC doesn't give you much to work with . . . !

Because it's true! DC is such an anemic little city . . . it's nightlife is lacking. Your guests had better like politics, crime, and the Redskins.

Mary Kay!? Next comes scrapbooking, you know! :)

MY GOD scrapbooking is the most evil hobby ever. It's like this really transparent capitalist ploy to get you to spend hundreds of dollars on supplies to create false sentimental memories.

PS. Kim, you made out better than I did at a Mary Kay party--I was guilted into buying the lotion too. :P

I ALWAYS wanted this kid to show up. There are so many times in my life, I'd have been happy to load money on this kid if he would just SHOW UP. The lawn services always stupidly overcharge, and then nag you to death about the money. If only a kid with a mower would show up -- he'd feel rich beyond the dreams of avarice, even if I paid him far less what I was paying the lawn service.
