Time for the weekend in review. It was a pretty good weekend, two hang-overs and all. Friday I spent all day in PowerPoint class. My dumb ass thought that an all day class was a good idea the day before a long holiday weekend. The class was good, I learned a lot. No, I will not be using PowerPoint here. Friday night I met VonStepBrother1 for his birthday dinner. We met at a Peruvian BYOB place. It was f a n t a s t i c. All total, there was 8 of us, and 12 bottles of wine. Yummy. VSB1, his g-friend, her brother, her two friends, VSB2 and VonStepSis2. We all had a great time. The food was to die for, the wine was perfect. It was one of those 3 1/2 hour dinners. They had a guy there that played classic rock on this pan flute thing and a drum. I was full and tipsy and went home after dinner. I opted out of the after-party at VSB1's house. At 3:30 am I got a text from VSB1 that said "yay" - I guess the after party was still raging! Saturday I had a wedding to go to. It was one of those weddings where I wasn't sure why I was even invited. It was the older brother of one of my oldest friends. The wedding was at a hotel in Schiller Park. I opted to get a room, so I wouldn't end up with a DUI at the end of the night. The wedding was very cookie cutter. I have to say that the bride's dress was gorgeous. Other than that, nothing much to say. I got tipsy on bad wine. I went solo to this wedding. The reason I did that is because a lot of my oldest/closest friends were there, so I knew I'd be ok. I was. The music was really really bad after a very promising start. The happy couple's first dance was a beautiful song from Rob Thomas that I'd never heard before. After that it was all "Celebration" and "We are family" and blah blah blah. Just plain BAD. I hate that. So, I just sat there and got myself tipsy. Good times. Sunday I had breakfast at the hotel with those of my friends that were able to make it down to the restaurant (there were a few who were way to hung over to join us). Sunday afternoon I was heading over to John and Toni's for dinner. I stopped at the store to pick up dessert. Well, don't shop hung-over. I got 2 desserts, a big tub of spinach dip, chips, and Hawaiian bread. Oops. John grilled up some ribs and hot dogs. We watched Cartoon Network. It was a good time. I like to just chill out sometimes, and John and Toni are the people I like to chill out with the most. So, while not the most exciting of weekends, it was good. I'm back in the swing of things. This weekend I will be at Mai Fest all weekend long. So, if you're around on Saturday, come on over to Mai Fest and see me and Shannon - The two fastest stein pourers in Chicago!
