Julie is Leaving; Russell Simmons

Wah! Julie is moving back to Cincinnatti! I am going to miss her! She decided to move home and go to school there instead of here. Wah! We all got together for her last evening in town to eat Casa. I think fate was watching down upon us, because somebody at the bar bought the table next to us an ENTIRE PITCHER OF MARGARITAS, and they DIDN'T WANT IT. So, we asked if we could take it! Awesome! Free margaritas!!

After dinner, a few of us went to Memorial Auditorium to see Russell Simmons speak.

Bike Store Grand Reopening and Mom's Birthday Dinner

Mer and Pete's huge bike store remodeling project is complete, so they had a little party to celebrate and show off the new store! We gathered there for some beers and fun, and then Mer and I took Mom off to the Blue Gator for a girl's birthday night! Dad was in California for a conference, so we hit the town!

Mom's good friends Kathy and Rita joined us, and we had an AWESOME dinner. The Blue Gator just got a new chef, and we heard the fish was divine. Mom and I got the sesame encrusted tuna steak and the asiago encrusted sea bass, and shared each. They were amazing! We also got creme brulee for dessert, which of course was delicious!

Playboy Mansion Party

Last night, a bunch of us headed to this Playboy Mansion party. It was hosted by Kevin and Amy, and the theme was just "Playboy Mansion." Meaning you could dress up like anyone who would attend a party at the mansion! I just put on a corset and jeans.

It was a great party. There was a bathtub full of ice and beers. Also, there were cakes (it was Amy's birthday)! We hung out, snacked, made new friends, danced, etc. Check out the pictures, they say it all!

Mr. Studlyhunk: Body Double?

When Mr. Studlyhunk arrives home from his overseas adventures, I imagine he'll be surprised to discover that he has a body double right here in Athens! I wonder if he will be excited, or feel threatened? Behold, Joey vs. Mr. Studlyhunk:

Dayton: Anne's Birthday!

This weekend, I went to Dayton to celebrate Anne's birthday! It was really scary driving up there, because Athens has been flooding for the past few days. Luckily, there was only one scary part of high water. I just followed the car in front of me and did what they did.

It was a super fun weekend. Friday night, we had Subway for dinner, and then played the O.C. and Dawson's Creek drinking games. A nice, low-key night.

On Saturday, we got to go shopping! We went to Gabes and Marshall's. I got loads of awesome stuff. Then we came home and got decked out to go to a fancy birthday dinner with Tim. We went to this French place, and I had tons of firsts! First time having snails, first time having frog's legs, and first time having creme brulee! All of them were awesome.

After dinner, we went bowling, then came back to Anne's for some champagne and hot tubbing. On Sunday I sadly headed back to Athens. It was the first sunny day in over a week though, so it was an incredibly beautiful drive home!
