I am having such a bizarre weekend.
On Friday, Kerrie and I headed to the art district to see her friend's gallery. Instead, we ended up downing two bottles of champagne beforehand and whisking through the gallery with brisk compliments before crashing on a nearby curb.
We passed the time by eating dessert. (Well, I had strawberries and Kerrie had Virginia Slims).
Right when I was in the beginning stage of not knowing what the hell was going on, she dragged me to this reggae/hip-hop concert nearby. And then she dragged me on stage. We were the only ones dancing on stage (in front of a crowd of over 200) for almost an hour. It is literally the first time I have danced in public since high school. And one of the band members gave me the lei he was wearing before we left. So sweet.
An hour later we came across some hip hop musicians freestyling in the middle of the street. They held a dance contest and Kerrie and I faced off against a dozen other girls. The prize was a pair of panties from a local boutique. I ended up winning the panties and Kerrie came in second. We really should have been tied though because we both got the same number of cheers from the crowd.
As we were leaving, two hippie animal rights activists cornered us and tried to get us to save police horses from animal cruelty. After a few seconds it became apparent the guys were just interested in us. It ended with Kerrie hula-hooping in the street with the bearded hippie while the clean-shaven one asked me to be the new mother to his six-year-old son. He then kept begging me to get coffee with him sometime and attend some party in the scary part of town later that night (because I obviously want to get shot).
How do I get myself into these situations?
Saturday, hungover and dealing with nasty allergies, I went to a water park with my parents. The chlorine did not soothe the blisters on my feet which I had gotten from dancing all night in uncomfortable sandals. I also ended up getting sun burnt all over my face, chest, back, and arms. So, along with my allergies, I was pretty much a sneezing lobster all day long. Oh, and I spent most of my time at the water park on my cell because of a work emergency.
It was hell. I still feel like crap.
I'm hoping the rest of my weekend will be better. I just want some time to relax and recuperate before I go back to work on Monday.
I hope everyone else had an interesting weekend too. :)
