You know what today is?!
Basically my favorite day of the week: you take your work/reading/knitting/whatever to Starbucks, and have some you-time.
It's the best tradition I've ever come up with. I highly recommend you try it.
Today, while drinking my skinny caramel macchiato (so sweet but so good), I've finished up my poster for SPR, edited some photos, and now posted a blog. So productive and it's barely 10am!
Last night, after Nathaniel's going-away pool party, I went to the annual Margarita and Salsa Festival. Nick, Haggard, and I volunteered the day before for a few hours so that we could get a free entrance ticket (genius, as tickets at the door are $35) and we were given a free parking pass, too!
Last year I attended with Casey, her boyfriend (now fiance) Chance, Liz and her then-new boyfriend Travis, and our friend Jon. This year, Megan, Nick and I met up with Jon, Chance, and two of Chance's friends for some genuine Texan fun (I even wore my boots!).
Megan, Nick, and I with free chips and salsa (there was also amazing queso and sparse but tasty guacamole as well).
Nick enjoying a free sample of margarita! Really, you can grab as many free samples as you want. People try to wait in line, but it's super chaotic and ridiculously silly. Thus, you come as early as possible (earlier = less people = more samples) and it's a free-for-all. Needless to say, we consumed plenty of margarita samples. Shout out to Margarita Texas, which had the best margaritas by far [I just checked, and it wasn't just me who thought this, they won first in the Best Margarita category].
You can see the number of people in the main concert area, and this isn't including the VIP tables (about 1700 people there) or the indoor hall with all the samples. We didn't actually stay for the concerts (Gary Allen, Stoney LaRue, and Eli Young Band), but we spent about three hours at the festival eating, drinking, and having a blast!
Chance and me (and his classy koozie). He's one of my most Texan friends (and the one who taught me how to shoot a gun).
We had a blast.
... I've been watching John Doe on Hulu, a cancelled television series from 2002 that aired on Fox. It's not an amazing show, or a particularly bad show. It's an entertaining show about a man who wakes up with absolutely no episodic memory, but he has semantic memory like whoa. It's awesome. It also takes place in Seattle, so they keep using names of places that I know (I was three episodes in when I heard Bremerton!). Awesome.
... I am having the best hair day ever. What's up with that? Good hair days when you have nothing planned?
... We have our first intramural volleyball practice today for our GSA team today at 4, and then I think I'm going to try to convince someone to go on a bike ride with me after. Pray for no more bruises!
... Does anybody ever click "yes" during Hulu's ads when they say, "Is this ad relevant to you?"?! I'm not buying a car, I don't have kids, I don't give a damn about life insurance, and I already have a cat so I don't want to adopt another one. No, Hulu, totally irrelevant to my life.
