Here is a picture of food carnage from our neighborhood party.
The rest of my weekend went just fine. There was a little more to the story with Mr. B. He called me a couple of times on Saturday night and apologized for texting when he should have called, but ultimately, the end result between us was the same. I don't want to get into much more detail, because that pseudo drama really bores me and I don't want people talking a bunch of shit about him. Mr. B. isn't an asshole by any means, he's just going through some stuff. So, that's that.
Now, on to the next day. We had our block party on Sunday and it was hosted by my friend Bridget. She invited all kinds of people and I'm sure over 100 neighbors showed up throughout the course of the shindig or shingding, as my friend Joanne called it after she'd had a few to drink.
Here is a picture of someone trying to stop Bridget's dog from stealing hotdogs from little kids' plates.
Our neighbors are really great for the most part. We have some musicians and authors and tons of professors. In a town filled with pretension, our little block is surprisingly down to earth. At one point, a retired couple were on their way out and Bridget asked them why they were leaving already. The husband said, "Well. My Viagra wears off in 45 minutes, so time is of the essence." How hilarious is that?
Here are some neighbors under the little tent thingy eatin' and a-drankin'.
Bridget did introduce me to the "hunky" guy who was my age. She didn't tell him she was trying to get us together, and that was good. It was so much more casual this way. He seemed very nice and his kids are the exact same ages as my girls. He also didn't seem all that interested in me either. Bridget said he was pretty shy, but I think it really was a lack of interest. Which is totally fine. I'm defintitely not on a man hunt, and I like meeting people. Sometimes it's easier if there is no chemistry, because then it's safe and you can just be friends.
Today was a mellow day. The girls came over in the afternoon from their dad's. Stinky asked if she and I could do something fun, since Coadster had a showchoir workshop and then a potluck for that afterward. I told Stinky I'd take her to a matinee if she wanted. She definitely wanted. She said I could pick between seeing, The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2, Tropical Thunder or The Dark Knight. I thought it was funny that she even had to ask. She knows what a comic book geek I am. So, yeah. We saw The Dark Knight and I really liked it. I know everyone has already reviewed it, so I won't do that. Suffice it to say, that we were both well entertained.
Now, I guess I shoud hit the hay. I'll be going back to the real world of beige cubicles, paper pushing and answering phone calls tomorrow. Awesome.
