Art, Football and Colds – Oh, My

The three things that summarize my weekend.

First off, my stomach bug has been traded in for a cold.  No sleep between the coughing and the sneezing among other things.   I spent most of the day Saturday trying to sleep and rest and just relax.  Because…..Saturday night was…..

The Awesome Art opening of Hooligan Lili.  She did these candy pinups that turned out amazing.  The candy chosen were matched with an appropriate pinup – men and women.  They were colorful and full of whimsy.  Great stuff.

And the opening was a riot. It was supposed to last two hours – but the owner finally kicked us out an hour later.  Then we met over at another place owned by her friends for food, more talking, and more drinks.  It was great sitting there,  telling tales, looking at art, and just having a great time.

The only downside?  9hrs after that party ended – we were all meeting at the bar around the corner for San Diego Chargers football.  My cold was killing me.  But I wandered to meet them too.  Plus, I was promised food.  So, we all stumbled in – some more vertical than others – ate breakfast, cheered on the Chargers, and laughed at each others’ various states of hungover-ness.

After they won, we emerged from the dark bar, wandered home, and slept.  Then, post nap, I ran errands with Indigo while G graded papers.  A weird weekend, but a not bad one either.

Now, if I can just get this cold to go away…..

What do you think?
