bits and pieces

Randomly this weekend...

Me: Hey, what event is happening here tonight?
Young guy setting up tables (aka. YGSUT): Oh, it's a gay/lesbian event.
Me: Oh, that should be interesting.
YGSUT: Yeah. What are you guys here for?
Me: Oh, I'm here from [my company], doing a conference.
YGSUT: Oh crazy. Are you from around here?
Me: Oh yea, were down at [street name] and [street name].
YGSUT: No, I meant you...
Me: Oh... yea, I'm from the suburbs.
YGSUT: What's your name?
Me: I'm Meg.
YGSUT: Hi Meg, I'm Greg.
Me: Hi.
YGSUT: Do you have a number Meg?
Me: No, but I have a husband, Greg.
YGSUT: Oh... then I guess we can't go get some drinks?
Me: Uh, no...


The weekend was good. It went fast, it went well, and best of all I got to have off on Monday. :-) I liked having the event in Philly... it was nice to not have to travel so far, and of course, to have Travis come into the city with me on Friday night. We ate at this great restaurant called Haru... right in old city just down from the hotel. The food was fabulous... fresh, tasty, and amazingly inexpensive! I had some of my favorite plum wine too... which was great. I would definitely go there again. After dinner, we took a walk another block or so down the street and hit up this really cute coffee shop where we got a coffee, a hot chocolate, a water, and a juice for $8!! I'm so used to wayyyy overpriced Starbucks... I couldn't believe that he rung it up correctly! They had couches to sit on, and board games you could play, so Trav and I played a game of checkers (ended in a draw) before heading back to the hotel. We stayed up too late watching a movie on TV (Dragon: the Bruce Lee story... love that movie)... probably mostly because we had just drank the coffee! Oh well.

Saturday morning Travis left the same time as me to head home. The day went pretty fast for me and there were no real issues, except that the room was very small and cramped, and therefore kept getting a bit hot and stiffling. Oh well, everyone dealt with it. I completely forgot that Saturday was cinco de mayo... and I did go out for a little bit, but really just walked around to get some fresh air. Then I hit up the hotel bar for one drink (a freakin $13 martini), talked to my brother on the phone for over an hour, then headed to bed.

Sunday morning also went quickly... then after a leisurely lunch we were able to take off. On my way to the trainstation, I walked around Chinatown for a bit, and bought some yummy treats. Then it was back home, and from then until last night I pretty much relaxed and was lazy! Now it's back to the grind, although I think work should be pretty relaxing this week... with no major events on the horizon.


Now, a meme... stolen from Mainline Mom.

Explain what ended your last relationship? You mean my last boyfriend? Hmm... well my last boyfriend before Travis was my senior year of high school. He broke up with me, and I'm pretty sure it was the fact that I wouldn't have sex with him. At the time I was heartbroken, but now I look back and say Thank G*d!!

When was the last time you shaved? My legs? Hmm... thursday or friday? My pits? This morning. :-)

What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.? Tearing through my closet to find something to wear, running late!

What were you doing 15 minutes ago? Checking my work email and reading some blogs.

Are you any good at math? I'm not extraordinary at it, but I'm pretty good.

Your prom night? Actually a lot of fun... said ex-bf was all about dancing with me, showing that now that he didn't have me, he wanted me... lol. Plus my friends and I camped in one friend's big back yard that night and stayed up most of the night talking. It was a lot of fun.

Do you have any famous ancestors? Mary Queen of Scots... she was beheaded.

Have you had to take a loan out for school? Ugh, yes... a bunch.

Last thing received in the mail? A magazine.

How many different beverages have you had today? So far, just milk.

Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine? Of course... why wouldn't you?

Who did you lose your CONCERT virginity to? Hmm... I think it was the Gin Blossoms and Goo Goo Dolls.

Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach? Sometimes, but I more enjoy just laying in it.

What’s the most painful dental procedure you’ve had? Probably having my wisdom teeth removed.

What is out your back door? Hmm, well our back door is actually on the side of the house... so the side of our house and our neighbors house, and the gate to our back yard.

Any plans for Friday night? Not right now... but I'm trying to decide if I actually want to make some since Travis will be at the baseball game with work until late.

Do you like what the ocean does to your hair? Sometimes at the moment it gives cute trossled hair... but after about five minutes of that no, you feel like you have straw on your head!

Have you ever been to a planetarium? Yes! But not for a long time... I would LOVE to go back to one... I love the star shows.

Do you re-use towels after you shower? Yes.

Some things you are excited about? In order from soonest on: my cousin's wedding in NH (June), friend's wedding in the Poconos (July), Cape Cod (July), Uncle's wedding in DC or Lehigh Valley (August?), other Uncle's wedding in CA (September), Ireland (Sept/Oct) and our first anniversary (October).

What is your favorite flavor of Jell-O? Black cherry/ Rasberry.

Describe your keychain(s)? I have wayyyy too much stuff on my keychain... I have I have keys to my house, plus the houses of four other people, a work key and a car key, plus Travis' car key and a key to my old dresser... also a dice keychain from Vegas, a jump drive, a bunch of those annoying but helpful bonus cards from grocery stores, an orange pig (i don't know), a little light thing from work, and holding it all together a Lehigh University carabiner. Yipes.

Where do you keep your change? Bottom of my purse, a piggy bank (real one, shaped like a pig), or in a giant empty water container which we are working on filling up.

When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people? Hmm, probably when making an announcement at one of our conferences... something more substancial then that, probably not since college.

What kind of winter coat do you own? A brown cordaroy one with a wooly collar... a brown wool calf length one with a fuzzy collar... and a dark brown suade one with a very fuzzy collar and cuff (which is super warm and I look great in!). I'm noticing an unintentional color trend here.

What was the weather like on your graduation day? Very sunny and hot... I got heat exhaustion/sun poisoning and barfed.

Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed? Well, if we had a door to our bedroom...
