ahhhhhhhh... such a lovely weekend away!

for a variety of reasons, we decided to get the heck outta dodge for the weekend - and was it ever the right choice!

on Thursday night we went up to a lovely relaxing campout party (left town at 10pm - the better to wake up in the yum!) 

we spent our days and nights cold chillin' - I had a DJ set on Saturday afternoon (which I have to say was one of my best: downtempo> rare groove> disco FTW!) but other than that our biggest decisions were whether to soak in the hot tub now or later, where on the lawn to park our butts (sun or shade) and when it was time to make another pizza! (we made fresh baked pizzas with fresh veggies and they came out perfect!)  we also saw tons of friends, including some folks whose paths we don't cross nearly often enough.

and, did I mention the SLEEPING IN!?!! I have never slept so well at a campout.

jovino brought home this amazing foam mattress thing, and OMG if it isn't just like having a real BED in our lovely little tent! I just slept and slept. It was so good for me! (It was rad for the unh unh unh too... heh heh heh.)

the campout was AWESOME! beautiful weather, lovely peeps, just enough excitement to keep it stimulating, yet opportunities for chilling to the Nth degree!

then when we pulled up at home, our neighbors were out BBQing... with a friend who really looked like Allison (at least until she took off her sunglasses.) strange - not bad, but definitely strange.  I miss her.  :-(

I'd felt Allison's presence all weekend long (and one night I wore her red and black wrap dress and her fave perfume, and I felt so close to her there... especially one particular moment hanging out in the kitchen...)

of course I still (and always will) miss my homegirl, but it was really good.

I eagerly await returning to work tomorrow! (I will admit to already having printed out all of the orders that came in while we were away, but I didn't even go so far as to separate out the ones that can be mailed immediately from the ones we need to sew...)

I have to say, the break did us a lot of good. I think we'll write it into our "corporate calendar" for next year!

I'm feeling: rejuvenated rejuvenated
I'm hearing: lovecats - tricky

16 smooches or Gimme Some Love!

Agreed. I have sought shelter from the barrage of RealLife(tm) myself. Jovino was showing the signs of stress from that kind of thing and I was kind of glad that you got SOME last summer campout going on, even if you guys are not able to make the bigger event.

Jovino and you spending time together sounds like the therapy you guys deserve.

um, what makes you think we're not able to make "the bigger event"? dood!

Oh I meant bigger events in a more general sense. I figured you guys have been so swamped with Bunnywarez and the stress was getting to Jovino a bit (believe me, I understand). As for as BM, he never made it clear about what would happen and if they could go. I sent him some messages through tribe regarding some of the cheaper value BM tickets but I never heard from him.

I shall be at the 9:00 keyhole myself. You?

Wish I could say that. Ended up out of work sick most of yesterday, not 100% today but trying to go in anyway...with everything else going on, need the money. *sigh*

Maybe at the end of the month....

so happy to read you had an awesome weekend!!

it's been weird seeing Allison's name in my 'upcoming birthdays' column when I log on to LJ.

hope to see you soon!

it was sorely needed, and came at just the right time for us. hope to see you as well... you going to TTITD?
From: ninarawkstah Date: August 13th, 2007 07:51 pm (UTC) (Link)

not sure what that is - plz clarify?
djmermaid From: djmermaid Date: August 14th, 2007 01:16 am (UTC) (Link)
sorry! it's "That Thing In The Desert" - you know the one. the dorky overpriced raver hippie disneyland! ;-)

> it's "That Thing In The Desert"

at this point, it's looking like I'll be there in spirit - enjoy!!

What's the name?

Of that perfume? I really like it! I know you said it's discontinued, but that is what Ebay is for. :)

Glad you had a lovely weekend and feel refreshed. I'm excited to get back up to that particular spot in October!

Re: What's the name?

I have indeed seen it on ebay. it is Tom Ford for Estee Lauder Azuree body oil. I have part of a bottle that belonged to Allison, and then found another bottle on ebay. shop around, though - the prices can vary a lot on that kind of thing.

and thank you again for the AMAZING fabric boa you made for me! I'm so touched - I just about burst into tears, especially when I read your sweet note. PURRR!

ask Jovino... he got it in SF is all I know. and it wasn't especially cheap, but it IS especially awesome! I can hardly wait to sleep *comfortably* on the playa!

Yay for an awesome weekend off! *hugs* I need one of those son as well.

yeah, ya can't work ALL the time! sometimes you have to recharge.

looking forward to hanging out sometime in the fall.

BTW I rocked my fabulous yarn tail at a party recently and got several compliments - and is it ever fun to dance with! I am resisting the urge to take it to burning man though - seems like it'd be a hassle to get all the inevitable dust out of it. I want to keep it nice!
