Weekend highlights

Bugs & Roger arrived late afternoon on Fri so we kicked off the weekend with sidecar martinis. Then we met up with 'the usual suspects' for Fri Night Dinner. Once home again we hung out and caught up on each other's goings-on.

Sat morning Bugs, Roger and I enjoyed coffee, English muffins, music, and newspaper/magazine reading while Spouse went to his personal trainer appointment. Later we went to my favorite lunch spot: Cafe Sole, where I had my usual: fried oyster BLT with melted brie. It is HEAVEN! Then we walked down the street to the new Italian deli and bakery called Touch of Italy to look around and sampled some wonderful cheeses. Spouse bought some chocolate eclairs for later. Back at the house we hung out with our friends until it was time to go to the movies. We went to see an indie film called "Hollywood, je t'aime" sponsored by the Rehoboth Beach Film Society. It was cute, but seemed to kinda plod along. There really wasn't much in the way of 'peaks and valleys'; it was more like a 90 minute plateau, but still enjoyable. An interesting side note for me was recognizing Michael Airington in the film. I met him years ago in Washington DC. He moved to LA to get into acting. Looks like he did it! Afterward the film we met up with Steven & Thad for dinner at Saketumi. Again, I had my favorite: Panang Curry Chicken. The food, service, and atmosphere are always terrific at Saketumi.

Sun morning Steven & Thad came over and the 6 of us had brunch of blueberry pancakes, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits, fruit salad, juice and coffee. We had a lot of fun, and began making some spring travel plans (day trips) with our friends. Shortly after 1:00 we said our goodbyes to Bugs & Roger, followed shortly by Steven & Thad. Spouse & I ran a few quick errands then returned home so Spouse could take a nap while I caught up on some email. We just relaxed the rest of the evening, and watched "Once". Like the film we saw the night before, this one also lacked the necessary plot contrasts to keep you engaged. It was a sweet story and the original musical performances were good.

Yet again, it seems the weekend flew by. Hope you had a great one.

Crush du Jour: Ryan Paevey

How nice to read a post about a fun and happy weekend and no bitching about all the rain and win. We had hundreds of trees come down! You can't drive a block without having to make a detour. But we have power.

the crush looks like he was split down the middle and someone poured in the melted butter.

oh, wait, he's NOT a loaf of bread...too fuzzy...

sounds like all y'all had a great weekend!

I have that movie on my netflix queue. I've been wondering how it is.

I love sidecars! I didn't think anyone drank them anymore. The fried oyster BLT with brie sounds sinful.
