hello, interwebs! i sure do love me a long weekend, but then i get so flustered when i return to the land of the digital afterwards, and everyone has been blogging and twittering away and i'm all behind and oh hey, the rest of the world doesn't have off for memorial day and would you just LOOK at my work inbox, yikes.
the clusterfuck of returning is so, so worth it, though, in exchange for a sublime memorial day weekend like we had in dc. it was the absolute quintessential start-of-summer weekend: gorgeous sunny weather for 90% of the weekend, bbqs galore, sports events, and lots of beer.
we started our weekend on friday with - once again - korean bbq followed by karaoke. it was superb.
saturday was my initiation into la barra brava section of dc united. this is a very.. um... "energetic" group of fans who spend the entire game singing chants at the top of their lungs. there is no sitting and no down time for the entire match.
ooh, and i know a LOT of dc united chants now, including several in spanish. and one involving curse words in spanish. am badass.
sunday was a bbq at a coworker's house, and monday was another bbq with friends. this is after the bbq tailgate before the dc united game, and korean bbq on friday night. it's safe to say i'm ok on meat for a while. (twss?)
aaaanyway. this week is short and sweet for me: after having monday off, i'm also taking off friday, because my parents are coming to town! they're coming down to help me paint the majority of my apartment, which is currently a dingy, stained, i-can-tell-you're-a-renter, used-to-be white. i have a bunch of paint chips taped to my wall this week to determine which still-a-neutral-i-promise-mr-landlord, but omg-please-not-plain-white color will be chosen for the weekend's festivities.
the rest of the weekend will no doubt be spent trying to figure out how to get paint out of cat fur.
