I whipped up this little number for my friend Amanda as a going away, going to grad school, I missed your birthday because I am a bad friend present:
It turned out pretty well. I think I am finally getting the hang of purses. And I really like making them, they are quick, so there is alot of immediate gratification.
I also worked on my submission for this month's Tie One On. I think I will finish it tonight because I have to mail part of it to Alabama for it to be really finished.
Except for last night, I did not get to bed before 2AM all weekend. There was alot of hanging out with Amanda, two movies, eating of fish, a CD release party and a surprise visit from Timmy's dad and brother Sammy.
Amanda and I went to see Red Eye on Friday. It was good and definitely a thriller. After much discussion of Cillian Murphy's hotness and the revelation that Amanda had never seen 28 Days Later, I insisted we watch it at my house. For the record, Cillian Murphy is definitely hottest in 28 Days Later and it is because of the accent. Amanda was sorely disappointed to hear he had been recently married.
On Saturday, we went to Amanda's fish fry where we chatted, I actually ate and enjoyed fish, but not as much as the hush puppies, and we were all neck deep in babies. No kidding. So many babies. Like six. Man-o.
After Amanda pried us away from the hush puppies (and her mother's fabric stash, Thanks Mrs. D for the great fabric, it has already been put to use!), we went to Sweetwater Abilene's CD release show. On the way, Timmy received a call from his brother that went like this:
Sammy: Hey, where are you?
Timmy: Uh, outside a bar about to see a show.
Sammy: Well, we are at (a restaurant that Timmy and I honest to god had just walked past 30 seconds ago).
Timmy: No shit!
Timmy: Awesome, we'll be right there!
Sammy: By the way, I think whitty is the best gal ever, you are a lucky, lucky dude.
Timmy: So true, so true!
Granted I am just paraphrasing there, because I only heard one side of that conversation.
So we met up with Sammy and my father-in-law and went to see the show, where they proceeded to drink us under the table. Man, I drank like THREE cherry cokes. Woo, wild child!
The show was excellent, Sweetwater Abilene is a really fun band and we closed out the bar chatting and carousing. Afterwords, The Timmy family and I went to an all night diner where I learned that Timmy's appetite is a familial attribute. So much food for 3 in the morning, my club sandwich seemed down right petite.
On Sunday, Amanda, Mark, Timmy and I went to The 40 Year Old Virgin. Steve Carell, you are my new boyfriend, and you are on Timmy's list too. I laughed my ass off. The ending was so ... so ... perfect. Seriously, hours later, I was saying "Can you believe they ____ ______ and _______ ______? Genius!"
So, good weekend all around. And now I will sleep under my desk at work.
