Me, myself and I

Happy weekend!  I hope everyone's had a great day.  I decided to have a date weekend with myself.  And boy, did I need it.

On Friday evening, I had dinner at Los Tios in Del Ray. I strapped on my Sketchers Shape Ups, hooked up Rikku, and walked on up the street.  There was a perfect table open, next to the wall, on the end of the patio area, where I could put Rikku on the other side of the fence and know that she wouldn't get in anyone's way.  It was, as always, very yummy (although not quite as yummy as Mi Casita, but those are big tacos to fill).  A very large white Sangria and two cheese one beef enchiladas later, it was time to get the home part of the weekend started.

On Saturday, I didn't do a whole lot.  Rikku and I were able to sleep in, play with some friends outside, take a nap, do some cleaning, watch some netflix, and finish a sock for my mommy.  She's getting the Lizzy socks for her birthday.  I thought about going to Baileys to watch the Yankees game, but decided against it when I figured out that I just wanted to hang out.

Today (Sunday) I really stepped up the date weekend.  I took myself to lunch at Chilis, I went and saw The Other Guys, then went grocery shopping.  I'm home now to just chillax with the puppy dog and my knitting.

The Other Guys was really funny.  I loved when they described Derek Jeter as the "biracial angel."  So true.  I also loved how Derek Jeter called Mark Wahlberg a dick.  LOL.  Will Farrell was awesome as always.  If I ever met him, I don't think I'd be able to tell if he's being funny or serious.  Everyone in the movie had great comedic timing.  I am going to have to get the DVD when it comes out, because I know they cut out at least one of Derek Jeter's scenes (pic on the right).  He got all dressed up as a homeless guy, and they didn't show it. What they did show during the credits were all the statistics about the big bailed-out firms and their performance over the past 10 years.  Incredible.   I think my dad will like that part.

Back to work tomorrow.  Weekends are always too short.  Hopefully we'll get some real work done this week.  It's my last full week, then I work three days the next then I'm on vacation!  Hooray OBX!  12-South, baby!
