Holiday Weekend Recap

Welcome back to work, everyone. It's good to be back in New York, but I definitely feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. This weekend, Spencer and I visited DC Doug and took in the sights of our nation's capital:

Like this giant phallic wonder. By far my favorite monument.

Lots of fun was had, many drinks consumed, and is it just me or did it feel like I was just continuously eating the entire weekend? I'll get to the details of the weekend in a moment but we HAVE to discuss this first:

Jon and Kate Plus 8: The Divorce Years!!! Omg, at first I thought I would miss the episode last night because I was staying w/ Spenc but luckily we caught it on the tele right before it started. And it was magical, oh so magical. By magical I mean depressing, bleak, and awkward. Did Jon really cheat? We don't know but with Katezilla as your wife, wouldn't you? The sextuplets turned 5 on last night's episode and they were more adorable than they've ever been if you ask me.

When Colin's balloon blew away and he started crying?
Aaaaaadorable. And then at the party when he kept calling the pinatas "tinadas"? Aaaaaadorable.

Alexis saying to Jon "I don't want you to go away anymore."

Well...heartbreaking. But Aaaaaaadorable all the same.

Now, it's very clear to me that Joel is the gay one.
But I have to say, I'm very much enjoying him lately. I think he might be in my top three kids, right after Colin and Alexis.

I also couldn't not post this picture of Aaden, Alexis, and Colin.

And is it just me, or might fatty mcChunkerson Hannah grow up to be the pretty one?
I mean, she is definitely giving some face face face beauty face in this picture. You better work it bitch!

Definitely a great episode, full of juicy gossip and "he said/she said." So what if it was a little "aawwwwkward." Separate couches?

Aaaawwwwwwwkward. J + K are clearly headed toward that big D-I-V-O-R-C-E in the sky but here's hoping that we'll still keep the show going. If they had to split up the kids four and four, who would be your dream team?

So yes, DC, that happened. I promise to update with many more pictures when I get them (ahem, Spencer) but it's impossible to capture the fun we had simply with pictures! After a HELLACIOUS bus ride down there (supposed to arrive at 5:45, didn't get there until 8pm) Doug, Spencer, Page Six and I went to dinner and then out for a few drinks. Called it an early night after watching some of the Jon and Kate marathon. Seriously, those bitches were all over the place this weekend. After parting ways with Page Six, we met up with Queenton for a little bit of shopping in Georgetown. Met up with my friend Christie for some (MULTIPLE) afternoon drinks, ate some delicious Thai food, and then prepared for a night out. Queenton had suggested we attend Ziegfield's Secrets, located on the wrong side of the tracks (literally) somewhere in DC. There are two parts to Ziegfields: The 5 hour drag show on the main floor and the.....strippers on the upper floor. Well might I just say....I never thought I would witness five tranny's singing "Proud to Be an American."

Yet...that happened. Queenton had told me the strippers wore "nothing but tube socks." I took to this to mean that they had tube socks covering their junk. No....the tube socks were on their actual feet. I quickly came to discover that I am a prude and that the sight of dudes nekkid on go-go blocks makes me giggle uncontrollably. This text from Spencer pretty much sums up the rest of the night:

Ai Dios Mio...I'm sorry mom. Needless to say I was very well behaved and the worst thing that happened was a photo shoot outside of the bar at the end of the night


Sunday we dragged our hungover asses to brunch, and then decided to take in a mooovie. Seeing as I was the last person on the face of the earth to see "Star Trek," we put on our nerd glasses and went to see that.

I'm sure that I'm going to make some enemies with this but I have to say....I didn't really like it. I really can't pinpoint exactly what I wasn't a fan of. I was bored by a lot of it, confused my much of it, and just not very interested in many of the characters. I can totally see how, if you were a fan of Star Trek, you would love this movie but I think I'll stick to being an X-Men nerd from now on. The one thing I am sure of, however?

Chris Pine is sooooo my new boyfriend. Charming, charismatic, hottie mc hot, he was fantastic as Captain Kirk. Mark my words, he'll be a huge star after this movie.

After meeting up with Queenton again Sunday night, we were left to our own devices as DC Doug had a concert to attend. Not really knowing anything about DC, we decided to revisit Ziegfield's. Why? I'm not really sure. It was a decidedly different scene than on Saturday night. Whereas Saturday it was packed, Sunday was definitely a different story. Take, for instance, the dance floor.

I kept saying to Q "That dance floor be cryin', because it is SAD." We closed down the bar, one of us left with the bartender (note: not me) and all was right in the world. After a rough, SICK night, we were back on the bus the following morning. All in all, a fantastic weekend. Thanks to DC Doug for letting us stay with him and for showing us such a great time in DC. Even though we didn't go to the zoo......
To leave you, one final story. All weekend Queenton would do this "black girl growl." Any time he saw a fierce black girl he would yell out this HORRIBLE noise...a mix between Arnie's Chewbacca yell at the end of "Romeo and Juliet" and a noise you imagine the Loch Ness Monster would make. Well Q, I saw this picture this morning and immediately thought "Grrrowl."

Please to enjoy.

Florida is in T-minus 10 days so the diet and detox starts TODAY!! I'm going to have a hot beach body if it kills me which, it probably will. Egg whites, chicken breast and broccoli, here I come!

'Arnie's Chewbacca growl' - ah, memories.

I never watch that Jon and Kate show but I've read more than a few essays and interviews that pretty much expose these 'reality' shows to be anything but. This looks like a classic 'ratings grabber.' Doubt there's much to it.

Have fun in Florida.

the "growl" really doesn't sound like arnie :) had so much fun with you gays. but i think i'm paying for it in karma - flat tire, lost wallet and working late...Oh well it was worth it. GGRRRRRRRROOOOWWWWWWWWLLLLLLLLLLL!

The Arnie reference totally made my day. I still remember trying to call the end of the show. When Philip R. Lowe is laughing in your headset, the actors' shoulders are bobbing up & down, and not being able to see the script due to the tears in your eyes... It's doesn't make for a quick lights out.

Sorry Kevey.
