Last night I went out on another date with Mr.X. Definitely the best one so far. He's growing on me. It was probably the first time I actually got to talk to him one on one when I wasn't having to scream over a bunch of noise.
Before Iwent to dinner Martha and I had been plotting my costume for the partay. I think I am going to be, hahahaha, a prostitute. Okay. Let me explain. Martha is going to be a cop, and she wanted to do something where our costumes could correlate somewhat. So we thought I could be a robber. We went to the Party Pig to brainstorm and this totally gay guy comes over and is like "Can I help you?" We told him our problem, and he kind of looked me once over and goes "Okay well forgive me for saying this...but you could be a prostitute." Why didn't we think of that?! Now it's just a matter of scrounging up some skanky clothes and buying a pair of fishnets and giving myself a black eye (Martha will have brutalized me).
Today I did Phase II of my big garden at work. SUPERPSYCHED about it. It already looks fantastic. I planted a couple of sage bushes, some tall purple fountain grass, some succulent ground cover, and then we're going to cover the whole berm in winter rye. It is going to look amazing when I'm done. The guys and I were out there working away and now I am beat!
This morning was nice because I got to work, didn't have any customers to call back so I was like Woah--what to do? Usually my first hour is spent on the phone. So I went and got on Merlot and schooled her over the course down in the lower ring. It was so nice out this morning and I was able to equitate a little bit on her since I hadn't done that in a while and even my rusty eye could see a distance from 5 strides back on her.
Matt also killed a rattlesnake at work today. Actually one of the homeowners found it on their porch and he went and killed it. He's going to skin it and thoroughly scared the crap out of me by shaking it in my direction.
I am going to my friend Jennifer's erotic art opening tonight at Gallery Lombardi. She doesn't usually do this type of stuff but we'll see what happens. I of course invited as many male friends as I could since it advertised body painting (and if you haven't seen it, you should...pretty freaking pheonomenal). I think I have a few takers and my friend Christina is going to come with me for moral support. We may end up going downtown tonight but seeing as I have to be leaving for the airport at 5 AM that may not happen (although it's never stopped me in the past...).
Anyway, this will be the final installment until I get back from NYC! Have a great weeekend!
