Some good news, this weekend, and the rest of this week

Mom said that the idea put forward that Dad might need to go into a home was premature. Dr. Ayers said he's headed for skilled nursing when he's able, and they've been having a psychiatrist come in to visit him and whatever drugs they put him on have been working, so Ayers told the social worker to back off. Still, his physical problems haven't improved, but at least they haven't gotten any worse.

This past weekend was a blast. I left work early Friday, headed home for some last-minute hemming, got stuck in traffic on the way to Pat & Johnny's, got there and helped everyone with their makeup and outfits, went to the Living Room for pictures and to meet up with some other folks, and then headed over to "Nightmare on Normal Street" where Q and I won Funniest Costume (the emcee just laughed and introduced us as "J. Lo and Aflac"). Afterwards we went to a party hosted by one of Yudi and Quincy's fellow chorus members, I ran home and packed a bag, and then spent the night at Quincy's.

Saturday morning we got up (late of course), picked up the rental car, and met Pat, Johnny and Hoai at the outlet mall on the way, where I was amazed that I was the only Caucasian in Armani Exchange - all Asian! We were also amazed at how cold it was, so we both ended up buying long-sleeved heavy shirts to wear. Then we got to the hotel and met them again, plus Thang and Larry, for a good Thai dinner, and we were going to go out to a club but it was so crowded (being Pride weekend) that we just got dessert and headed back to the hotel.

Sunday morning we all met for breakfast and then watched the parade. Very cute! Then we walked to the festival, got lots of freebies, saw Jack from the LYC chapter there, and finally got cold enough to head back to the hotel and head home. After dropping off the rental car I spent some time with Q and headed home.

Work yesterday, vegged last night, and work today, trying to get some stuff done before I leave this weekend. I had lunch with Yudi this afternoon and picked up Finding Nemo, which was released today. Tonight Q and I are off to LYC movie night. Ben's taking me to the airport on Thursday afternoon, then Natalie's picking me up, and then I get to spend some time at home. Yay! :)

    Gone. Finished. Done. Good riddance. BUH-BYE, loser.

  • Buy all the things!

    OK, fine, I wanted the thing, so I bought the thing, even though I really don't need the thing, and I'm not even sure what I'm going to do with the…
