I'm not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation ....

There are few things worse than taking that first sip of coffee in the morning, expecting to taste one thing - and tasting another. I was pretty darn clear on what I ordered, and yet I got the entire opposite. Regular coffee, no flavoring, no milk and probably about 1 Splenda. Clearly, it's a sign of how the rest of my day is going to go....

Of course, it is a rainy and sort of dreary day - so if I'm going to be a little blah or off - I'd rather it be today, as opposed to a gloriously sunny day that is just beautiful. Sometimes, you just need to have a down day. I guess maybe I needed to be thrown a little off kilter to "shake things up" a bit.

We hosted a wine tasting for the Business Association last night. It was a nice time, and it was sort of fun because I didn't have to actually give a presentation. Although we were asked questions and talked wine all night - there wasn't that pressure to perform. And there was a very nice woman there who is exceptionally fluent in French and she was very helpful on my pronounciation of French wines. I think I have "St. Emillion" down pat now. I keep saying it over and over in my head - and I sound pretty darn good in there! I think I'll take a chance today and start using it in my vocabulary to make sure it's not something I have to practice in my head before saying it aloud. It needs to flow naturally.....

Tomorrow night I'm going to see one of my best friends' band perform at a local bar. I'm really excited because while I have his CD, I haven't seen him live in forever. They're a bunch of already established musicians who are doing a WHO cover band. They're called SlipKid - and because of their famous lead singer - they have a pretty strong following. I'm just really psyched to see my friend. He's the closest thing to a brother I've ever had....and while we're not nearly involved in each other's lives as we used to be due to life sort of "getting in the way" - we're still really close and make it a point to stay in touch pretty regularly. I haven't seen him in person in years - yet we talk on the phone constantly. And we only live a town away from each other!!! So this will be a great night for me. I'm hoping to bring my camera, so stay tuned for pictures!

Big Ben said...

Yeah! Pictures. Pillow fights, bikinis and hot moms!

Rebecca said...

Ben - Hot moms. YES. Pillow fights and bikins - well, not this night. It would be cold in the nightclub to do that! ;)

I can't believe I forgot my camera!!! It was a great night - had a blast. ;)

Clew: ROADTRIP TO BOSTON SISTAH. ;)

Mr. Fabulous - You ARE that cool! ;)

Martie: Generally, my life is as mundane as most moms, but occasionally - just occasionally - I get to go out and forget about being a Mom for a few minutes. And then, at the end of the night - I'm glad to come home to reality. :)

Ramblin Girl - I know, it's been ages since I've visited your site as well, my PC has really been dying. BUT...I think in the next week I may finally have a new one. :) Glad to hear from you - hope all is well! :)
