Playdate With Gemma


Yesterday was a very fun day for me. After I spent the day lounging about the house, I made my way over the hill into the Valley to hang out with my friend Gillian and her adorable baby girl Gemma. Gillian deffo knows how to get me to hang out … she loves to remind me of all the amazing chain restaurants that exist in the Valley and, well, I simply cannot resist. I spent most of the evening the happy company of these lovely ladies … then I made my way back home and decided to do a bit of dark dancing in Hollywood. Yeah, not a bad Saturday, I think.

Dinner was had at Chili’s and I shall spared you my ridiculous raving about how good everything was! It’s been a couple of years (!!!) since I’ve been able to indulge at Chili’s so I was very surprised to see that many AMAZING new items have been added to the menu AND, they’ve changed their pricing. They have a 2 for $20 deal where you can get TWO FULL SIZE ENTREES AND an appetizer of your choice for $20. It’s meant to feed 2 people, obvs, but when someone wants to have BOTH Baby Back Ribs AND Chicken Crispers, well, he can do so for a very reasonable price. I’m just providing this example for instance … ahem. After dinner, we went back to Gillian’s place to chill out for a bit. I got to spend a lot of time playing Gemma and OMG did we have fun. This little girl loves to laugh, OY, so cute. It’s impossible not to just love her to death.

I almost weaseled out of going out last night cuz all that eating tired me out but I managed to rally and get my buns out to Disko Nekro for some fun dark dancing:

I missed out on going to City Club on my last 2 visits home to Detroit so I’ve been in the mood. I planned on going for a drink or two but I managed to stick around and dance til the party was over. They played lots of great stuff so, yeah, it was easy to keep the party going. I don’t get to indulge as much as I’d like to in goth/industrial music (Siouxsie and the Banshees, KMFDM, Sisters of Mercy, Lords of Acid, etc.) so it’s nice to be able to hang out with that crowd every once in a while. I had fun so I’m really glad I went out.

Today is kinda bizzy. I have brunch plans and dinner plans with friends. Today is Emma’s birthday and I need to send her a HUGE Birthday Lurve shout-out today! We are celebrating her birthday with booze later tonight so that will be fun. I hope all y’all are having a most amazing Sunday.
