Holiday Parties and Shows

So this past weekend my misadventures resumed with a night on the town with one of my best friends, Danny. I had a chairless housewarming party at one of my work friends' new house a ways off I-75. It was a really nice space and I think it had a lot of potential. LOTS of space (I could get lost!). Afterwards (it is so rare that Danny gets a wild hair and wants to go out) we went to Hoedowns and danced the night away.

The next day, I woke up, got out the door to purchase supplies for the lights that I make. Then I spent the next like 6 hours wrapping, drilling, and stuffing! (No, I wasn't having sex! :) The lights were a big hit, but unfortunately I only sold two. So I'm going to have to figure out a new strategy to sell them. I actually can redesign the things so that I can sell them after the holidays by turning them into "artistic creations" without the bows :) I took my creations to sell at the Hotlanta Softball Holiday Drag Extravaganza and I donated one to raffle off to the Chris Rainbow Program (which funny enough, my best friend Larry won it...and I had already given him one the year before LOL). The show was very enjoyable and some of the acts were surprisingly funny. Twice wigs fell off and everyone busted out laughing but the performers kept on!

Afterwards, Mikey and Dean dragged me over to the Heretic where I saw all sorts of people I hadn't seen in awhile so it was nice to catch up and say "Happy Holidays!" I had a long day on Sunday coming up so I headed out a little after midnight.

Sunday was my "Gettin' Er' Done" day...or at least it was a feeble attempt at it ;) I went out after lunch on a quest to finish up my holiday shopping. Started at Macy's and JCPenny looking for some jewelry for my sisters but everything I liked was made of crappy plastic and I like REAL materials like glass and natural stones. I did end up buying myself a new brown cap and scarf ($10 for both!) at Old Navy because it does get cold every once and awhile.

Then it was off to Hancock Fabrics, The Home Store, and then Target to try and find some curtains for my upstairs spare room. I was looking for a modern/trendy black and white print since that room is going to be designed around a monochromatic scheme (with red accents). Didn't find a damn thing so I went to IKEA where I got the comforter and pillowcases for that room. They actually sell fabric and I found the perfect stuff to make my curtains from. I think I did a pretty good job considering I just used this iron on stuff to do the hems. Check it out:

Things (post-David) are getting back to normal. Not really looking, but I have had a few people express interest. I don't think I desire anything right now other than some quiet time with me, my dog, and a few nice video games that I haven't had time to spent some quality time with. It has been a lot quieter and I realized that I definitely missed my "me" time.

I need to get off my butt and start planning my 3rd annual Christmas Eve Dinner. I generally host a potluck for my friends and neighbors that are still around. We get a few bottles of wine and watch a movie on my big screen TV :)

But hope everyone has gotten their holiday shopping done. I know I have to get out the door again this weekend and not return home until it is DONE.
