the weekend, underdressed

my friend vino calls, "hey, i'm going to this book party, come with!" he says it's at christie's (the auction house) which i think is a bit strange but i think maybe they've rented out a gallery room for the evening. i wear black jeans, and a black v-neck sweater. i mention this because, very shortly after i arrive that this is not the outfit i should be wearing. no siree.

because it's not really a book party as it is one huge couture fashion show because the book? wasn't really a book. it was a gigantic red volume with nothing but photos of and about, valentino, who was in attendance. as were a million other famous people in fancy red gowns. and i'm in jeans, looking very williamsburg.

i did what i could to avoid showing up in the background of any of the paparazzi photos and hung close to the bar where a fantastically gorgeous cater-waiter was DEF trying to get me drunk. and the food rocked. little toasted pumpkin ravioli with a goat cheese dip, truffled parmesan crisps with steak tartare, figs with prosciutto and gorgonzola, lots of yumminess on skewers. i heart free bite-sized food. if only they'd had pigs in a blanket, i would have been in underdressed heaven.

then off to julie's party where i didn't get any less drunk. and there was a walk-off, something that is becoming increasingly common amongst my friends. it's exactly what it sounds like. a runway is made and people take turns walking down it zoolander-like and a winner is crowned. the gays started it as a way to improve their use of heels and it has become somewhat of a habit as of late.

the CLEs really sucked. any my computer and my wireless card weren't behaving. i seriously think my laptop won't work unless it's plugged in. i know that makes no sense, but i could only get it to start up and operate if i was sitting at the outlet. and if everything was in working order and i even started to pull the cord out, the whole damn machine would freeze. and tell me that i had 6 minutes left on a batter that had been fully charged like two minutes earlier. SUCKY.

i miss blog reading terribly and am trying to move into a new job. i'm realizing having proper internet access is worth cutting out the $10 more that i'm currently making. so in the meantime, fill me in. you've got my e-mail. and my love, obv.

If it makes you feel better, Illinois now has mandatory CLE too, so there was no escaping it...
