I had all these aspirations of blogging more often but…here I am, at my normal qweek interval. It’s better than where I was previously though so slow, micro-improvements are ok!
On Tuesday evening, I had a blind date. We met for wine at Wine Steals. It was fine. No real chemistry but he was nice enough. More importantly, it was good for me to go on a date where it’s ok to acknowledge (not explicitly for heaven’s sakes, but you know) that there’s no chemistry despite the other person being very nice and probably not a serial killer.
On the 14th, I went to Trivia night with the Mercy crew. Our team was S’Avant Garde and we were awesome. 5th place awesome, but still. It was a ton of fun. The categories were current events, Nicholas Cage, Tea, Deaf Culture, College Basketball and picture round. This was my first trivia night ever and I’m so glad I went!
|Winner! (+ Golden Spoon!)|
On the 15th, I had a banner day. I won the chili cook off at work! 9 entrants and I am the W-I-N-N-E-R! Hooray. I made a bacon chipotle monstrosity. I fully acknowledge that the bacon let me win. Although several people liked the smokiness of the chipotle. I was also a poor winner since I had to rub it in to all the haters and prior smack-talkers! Since I had a new golden spoon, I could shake it vigorously!
That night, I made it a weekday spa night. I got my hair done by the excellent Audrey at Gypsy Doll. I was a little more courageous with the bangs and went for it. They look awesome! I also picked up a gold sequin dress that fits really well and was $20 (vintage)! I then headed over to Va-Va-Varnish in East Village. *LOVE!* It was so clean and cute but even better, the products were awesome! Nice polishes and the lotions felt great during and after! I am definitely going back!
Friday, I went to Seven Grand, a pretty awesome whiskey bar in North Park. I had grapefruit juice and soda since I was on call, but I got to hang out with Shelby, Zen, Robbie, Jenna and two of Jenna’s friends, one of whom acted single but…was not. What a dirtbag. Seriously, what is wrong with guys sometimes? Although he was kind of strange, the rest of the group was awesome and we had a great time. I also saw my cousin Jim, which was pretty random.
|Korean BBQ, cooking|
Saturday was packed in the afternoon evening. I went to Manna Korean BBQ and karaoke for Ryon’s birthday, which was awesome and definitely an experience. The I went to Station and WhistleStop. Again no drinking but I had so much fun. I like to drink, but it’s definitely not necessary. The only thing I notice is that my nights tend to end a little earlier because I’m aware of getting sleepier and/or a tiny bit bored.

|More Korean BBQ, very pigglie wigglie!|
Sunday was super mellow, as was Monday. I did a pretty awesome mastoidectomy; actually, I did two! So, that was a good day. Last night, I went out to Barrio Star and had delicious margaritas, mini-tacos and tortilla soup. DELICIOUS! Tonight, I’m going back to trivia night. I’m feeling like a winner!
