10dimensions: Kelly! You're wearing jeans!
kellinator: Yeah, I'd live in 'em if I could.
10dimensions: Do you usually come in your work clothes? Because I was like 'Kelly, I know you're a librarian, but damn.' You look more like a hipster in these.
Of course, I was just pleased that I was referred to as a hipster.
Saturday morning I dragged my carcass out of bed early enough to put my money where my mouth was and go voter canvassing with the North Fulton Democrats. It was rather frustrating; most people weren't home, and most of the people who were didn't speak English. We did have a couple of interesting conversations, and I got a whole new appreciation for how spoiled I am. I don't know if it helped, but at least I've done something.
Then I went on a remarkably unsuccessful quest for Testor's Dullcote. If this is common as mini painters say it is, why the hell haven't I found it yet? I went to Michael's and Hobby Lobby.
Saturday night was bannanna's party and was much fun. Met/remet tons and tons of cool people, most of whose names I cannot remember because I suck with names. I almost immediately did a shot of rum upon my arrival when Teddy started talking about Ken Jennings. I threatened to keep doing it, but luckily for me nobody else mentioned him. I geeked out with razelore over graphic novels, then I did a body shot out of my own cleavage, so the evening was a good combination of the intellectually engaging and the crazy. And I don't think I did anything especially stupid while drunk, which is always good and possibly a sign of newfound maturity. Or possibly just a sign that I'm slowing down in my old age.
I crashed out on the couch and when I woke up bannanna and ghettohaxor introduced me to Da Ali G Show, which of course I loved. Not quite as good as Chappelle's Show (Chappelle is frequently outrageous to make a point, while Ali G is usually just outrageous for the sake of being outrageous), but the one where he was interviewing the conservative minister and asking him if being faaaaaaaabulous was an ach ja or a nichts-nichts absolutely slayed me.
Then off to Athens for ga_sunshine's birthday get-together with the Athens crowd! We watched movies and played with the kittens and generally harassed each other. At one point while ga_sunshine and I were kicking each other and loudly blaming the other for starting it, a very irritated-looking LJ-less Scott got up and picked up a sword. That worked, for a little while anyway.
It was one of the best weekends in a long time, but damn was I tired!
