1. I think I got a little TOO wasted on Thursday night. Yes kids, even I have limits.
2. Friday night was a ball. Hung out at Grace's house with the usual cast of characters sans Chocolatte but including Kiat, Evan and Taylor. We just sat around playing drinking games and ate a chicken buffet.
PS. Wings over Washington is soooo good. Our meal may or may not have included 20 chicken tenders, 60 buffalo wings, a rack of ribs, 2 large fries, 2 large onion rings, and 2 two-liters. And don't you know it was a wing free-for-all as drunk b*tches were headed out the door.
3. Saturday night was a night in with the bf. We watch Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which was better than I had expected.
4. The bf and I went to the Air & Space Museum, definitely brought out the inner geek in me.
5. Went to JR's last night although we were all surprisingly tame. Despite Dave having removed the easy-pour spout for one of our rounds of drinks.

First off: How drunk was 'Lupe? I mean she was WASTED! (Apparently I wasn't the only one that thought Lupe was loaded.)
Second off: Who introduced Kara to coke. And for that matter the guy who's name I don't know that was kicked off on the first episode. I think he lost like 100 pounds.
Thirdly: Andre's breakdown ... WTF?
I also watched Project Jay last night. It was interesting but kinda left you wondering...I mean did he go to fashion week or not? I'm guessing "not" as they probably would've said something. Oh well.
UPDATE: So I've been reading the blog that I linked to above under "first off." It's from Bravo Executive Andy Cohen, kinda interesting if you're bored at work.

Last night, Suman took me over to Sinjuku-ni-chome, which is the gay area. Girls, it is NOTHING like Dupont. It was my first time on the subway. Def different than either DC, or NY. To get to the bar, GB, we had to go down a treacherous pair of steps to a little doorway. I was just waiting for some man to slide a little panel over and ask us what the password is. There was no password, but we get inside and I discover that the bar is about the size of the upstairs of JR's. T-I-N-Y. Even though it was the size of Twin Sister's studio, I had a great time. It actually reminded me a lot of JR's. There were TV's on the walls playing the same Madonna videos, the bartenders were really friendly, and everyone seemed to be having a good time. A numerous drinks we left and went to a "club." I use the term club loosely as the club could not be bigger than the upstairs at Halo. The dancefloor was miniscule and music was "eeh" but still it was a good time.
Dear JR's customers,
We've decided on institute a couple of new policy's that have been very successful with our Japanese counterparts.
1. There will be no tipping. If you try and tip us we will throw the money back at you.
2. The JR's bar-backs will be on you like white on rice. If you put a cigarette out, the ashtray will be quickly replaced. When you set your drink down after finishing, the glass will be quickly removed and you will be asked if you'd like another.
These changes are designed to make your bar experience more enjoyable and will be instituted immediately.

1. The G terminal at Dulles is what I imagine the airport in Mumbai might look like. It was a total shitshow
2. 13.5 hours is way too long to be on a plane. Since my flight into JFK was delayed, I didn't have time to go and get any Tylenol PM. Consequently, I didn't sleep at all on the plane. It. Blew.
3. Tokyo is NUTS. Lots of neon lights. Lots of random freeways that are stacked on top of each other.
4. There are a ton of gadgets that do all sorts of stuff. The toilet for example has 8 buttons on it, on of which I think heats up the seat. However, these gadgets are useless to me since I don't have a clue what's written on them. Sidenote: I've developed a newfound respect for international symbols
That is all for now. Will write more later.

[Twin Sister] to Me: "You are now banned from drinking red-wine at a party. Annie and I were like archeologists following your wine trail all over the apartment."
Office Mate Kate to Me: "Ya Chris, obviously you got wasted. You were on wine-goblet number three when I left." (Side note: Annie has some 20oz wine glasses that I thought, rather than refill I'd just fill to the top. Cute.)
GWH's Friend: ...I hate those kinds of ladies. They always come up to the bar, order a bottle of white zin, and smoke a pack of Misty's. And clearly the last time they got a new perm was 1985.
Twin Sister: A gay cruise sounds like fun but I think I'd be over it after day 3. It seems like it's more geared toward the gays that live in podunk and don't get the opportunity to always be around gay people. I mean, hi. I live in Dupont.
Me: Right, my life is a gay cruise.
Group (with look of shock) to GWH: Umm, I don't think that was the stripper you gave your number to. (This was the next day, at Biddy's).
GWH (later at JR's): So I think I'm gonna go hook up with him anyway...

BTW: I finally found out who The Boy is, he was Watsty McWasterson. Ok, actually I have no idea if he was drunk or not considering I was fully in the bag.

1. I'm really not a fan of Halo (sorry Sean). It's not any one thing that bothers me but a lot of little things.
2. While standing outside smoking a cig we realized that not 10 feet away from us was Howard Dean! He is short. And his face is kinda pudgy. He should have work done.
3. I'm pretty sure that shot number 4(?) was not such a good idea
4. I'm also pretty sure that I really should've gone to McDonalds either before or after drinking.
5. JR's does not have a liscense for the kinda dancing I saw in there (This comment is not directed at anyone that was in my group...
Except Ms. Jones).

It's intense. The secrets range from the mundane to seriously deep with emotions anywhere from humor to guilt, sadness, rage, love, etc. The book reminded me of a conversation I had with an ex (I can't really remember when, but it was a while ago):
He asked me if I had any secrets, and I told him "yes."
I mean, doesn't everybody? But he was really offended. "You should be able to tell me anything," he said.
There was a hint of truth in his statement, I really should have been able to tell him anything. This conversation went back and forth for quite some time, and I almost relented and told him. It wasn't that I was trying to hide something from him, or that it was about him, but rather I just preferred to let the past stay in the past. Besides, my secrets weren't exactly eating me up inside, I just didn't really feel like sharing. With anybody.
After reading this book I feel slightly vindicated, even after all this time. It seems to me that everybody has a secret.

1. I think it took half the chinchillas in China to make Aretha's coat. And memo to Superbowl producers- Was Aaron Neville the best we could do?
2. The FedEx commercial with the cavemen, kinda violent.
3. The two Ameriquest commercials were HILLARIOUS! Watch them here.
4. Look, I know that football players are supposed to be big. But there were a whole lot of Steeler's players that looked like they took the all-you-can-eat buffet a step too far.
5. And what is up with that man's hair. I know you know who I'm talking about.
6. Drunk lesbians rooting for the losing team. Not pretty.
7. For 2.2 seconds I actually thought that Fabio had launched a fragrance line. Keep in mind I was several drinks under at that point.
That is all. Stand by for a entry about from my trip to Baltimore. It involves, a straight bar, thongs, a bucket of booze, and a fat girl named Peggy Sue.

1. Mother Nature- I'm over you. One day it's 40, the next its 65. I realize you might be getting a little schizo in your old age, but really? PS. What's this about snow over the weekend?
2. The BBC stopped by today before hopping on the bus to NY. That's right. I said BUS. eeewww. He looked homeless.
3. My office mate Kate keeps laughing to herself. For reasons that only she knows.
4. I have a FIERCE april fools joke already planned. I am usually against april fools jokes, but this one is too good to pass up.
5. Why do creditors keep calling me? I already paid you. Check your fucking systems. Well except AES. I haven't paid you yet. You can keep calling. I'm just not going to pick up the phone.
6. I wore red shoes to work today. I thought I'd spice things up a bit.
7. Song of the day: Fashionista (Nick Terranova Circuit Mix) - Jimmy James. It is HOT
That is all for right now.

I've finally gotten my tickets to go visit a friend in Brussels for a weekend at the end of March. Should be fun, although I have to say Brussels is not high on my list of favorite cities. Hopefully this time will be better than my last few times there. Granted, they were a number of years ago...
I've been meaning to do this for AGES but just never got around to it. I have a coupon for a free ticket on United that was going to expire...nothing like waiting till the last minute. Am flying non-stop both ways from Dulles. Well didn't relaly have a choice, since the ticket had to be on United, and they only have one flight to Brussels.

I did, however, catch some of the Democratic rebuttel given by
