We're So Pleased to be With You

At the Dublin on Homecoming.

Friday night was wonderful. We went on our date to that restaurant and it was lovely. We had some tuna as an appetizer and then shared our entrees and a bottle of Zinfandel. It was still warm enough to sit outside and the guy really liked the place and the ambiance.

Me among the pumpkins.

Saturday was a lazy day. I woke up and took Stinky to work and came home just as Close Encounters of the Third Kind was starting. Of course, I had no choice but to watch the whole thing. I ran my 6 mile route, did some laundry but not a whole hell of a lot else.

We took the tractor tour of the orchard.

I was in kind of a mood on Saturday night. The guy and I planned to go to the Dublin as a couple for the first time. I liked to call it our coming out ball. It just happened to be Homecoming and the place was packed. Most of my favorite girlfriends were out, but I was a little overwhelmed to be able to talk to everyone. I finally got to a point where I had to take off, or my head would explode.

Stinky picking apples.

On Sunday I realized what my moodiness had been about the night before. That's right. Churlita's migraine came to town. It was a vicious one that took all of the migraine meds I was allowed to take to quell..For the most part. Stinky and I went to the apple orchard today. It was chilly at first but then got really nice out.

We had a fun afternoon together and got to talk and pick apples and hang out, which doesn't happen very often. We went to Panera's for lunch and had soup, bread and lemonade before she went to work.

I stopped off at G.'s house to talk to her and D. before G takes off for Mexico for a week tomorrow. After that, I was officially wiped out and had to go home to rest before I picked up Stinky from work and her boyfriend came over and we ate cheeseburgers for dinner.

Aside from the migraine, it was a great weekend. I hope yours was too.

Minus the migraine, that does sound like a great weekend!

And that picture? The Guy looks sooo smitten (and cute!) and you look like the cat who swallowed the canary (and gorgeous!). Awesome!!!

That sounds great... except for the migraine of course. I cannot drink wine much, because something in the process used in making some wines gives me migraines. I have to be very careful about them.

What a nice looking guy! I am so glad that you are in such a happy place. Cheers to you both!

I love Zinfandels-- an underappreciated wine. I tend toward heartier wines.

Glad things are going well with you and the new beau. It's funny when you take a date for the first time to one of your hangouts-- it's a step up in the commitment.

-Minus the Migrain-, I'm happy that you had such a great weekend.
Me: oh, I got lots of administrative tasks done.

Congrats on you and the guy! Sorry the migraine ninjas came to visit though...

Laura thinks he's smitten... but I wondered if he was a bit nervous ... he's the only one not beaming!

Churlita said...

Laura, Ha ha. Thanks. It's still so new and he still has some hesitations, so I'm trying not to get too excited about things. I guess that kind of cautions comes with age and past experience. It seems like nothing's all that simple after a certain age...

Ananda, Thanks. I have problems with wine too. When I know I'm ripe for a migraine, I try to abstain, but this one came out of nowhere.

Johnny, It's his hang out too, so it wasn't so weird that way. It was more strange to publicly announce it to all of our friends by going down together.

Rel, I should probably be getting some tasks done sometime soon here myself.

Skyler's, Thanks.

DMarks, I don' know if it's either. He might be just worried about those two crazy chicks at the end of the booth. Ha ha.

That is a great photo of the two of you!

I'm sorry to hear that a migraine announced its arrival.

Manor West Nightclub said...

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
