Friday August 27th
9PM - It's Miss Kane's Birthday, and as a member of FOKK, I'm obligated to be drinking many a beer with her at the Surly Goat!
Saturday August 28th
10:00AM - I'm demanding my breakfast in bed! Maybe I'll go sleep over at Kristany's house instead. She seems to wake up to gourmet breakfasts every day.
6:30PM - Devil's Night Drive In. Wes Anderson. Rushmore. Rooftops. Downtown. Kristany Dyakostica. It will be awesome. (See below if you have no idea what I'm talking about, but are intrigued enough to investigate & join me)
Sunday August 29th
10AM - Because clearly I'm becoming a Farmer's Market whore... I'm throwing this on my weekend docket. I'd like to think that I'm going to wake up early enough to get some fresh sea urchin... but after an evening out in Downtown with Kristany Dyakostica & his Gay Cowboy lover, I'm not sure how coherent I'll be at 10AM.
All in all, I'm taking it pretty easy this weekend... considering being on antibiotics + lack of alcohol, leave very little to do.
