I imagine that those who are cool and popular have weekends like I had every weekend. But, being only moderately cool and kind of popular, I only have them once in awhile. But I had a very nice and very busy weekend. And I didn’t even go clubbing! I slept through my first scheduled activity (sorry, Adam!) because of my terrible job, but made it to Brooklyn for brunch with my lovely friends Jenny, Kate and Emily (in from out of town). Naturally, we wore basically the same outfit.
While we drank iced coffees and waited for our table, two little girls (and their parents) walked by–and the littlest girl realized her new life goal was to be just like us. She stopped and stared and we waved hello. And then we made small talk and answered her questions like “Why do you guys have the same shoes on?” and “Are you going to a party?” It was quelle humorous.
And then we ate brunch and gabbed. And ventured to Manhattan for a little Little League playoff action. We did not see Ed Burns (I know you wondered). Later, I saw 22 Jump Street in a movie theater with RECLINERS. It was the best movie going experience ever (and not just because Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill). I brought wine juice boxes–which really ups the Jump Street game. And, like the last time, I felt like Ned Flanders at a Chris Rock show.
Sunday, I met some Kirkwood peeps for brunch in the neighborhood. I learned that Kirkwood alum Colin Donnell (of Arrow fame) is playing the male lead in Violet on broadway. It’s always amazing to me when people’s dreams of being on broadway actually COME TRUE.
Anyway, my tiny air conditioner is blasting in my tiny apartment and for once I feel ready to face Monday. I hope you do, too!
One thought on “AND JUNE COMES TO A CLOSE.”
Colin Donnell really is the exception that proves the rule…and, hey, the food in that last picture is to die for.
