'Cause I Ain't No Harlem Black Girl

A perfect weekend from start to finish. Stayed in on Friday night and had some 'me' time, which I rarely do on the weekend. I watched a few episodes of Six Feet Under in preparation for tonight's first episode of the final season of the show. I am only hoping it won't be too depressing, as that seems to be the avenue the writers have taken lately.

Hit the gym Sat. morning, and after a quick clean up around the house, I met my mom, dad, aunt, uncle, and two cousins for lunch at Casa Grande. Always nice to catch up with family, especially those that you only see once or twice a year. Two (legal) swirls later, I decided that I really did need to purchase the duvet cover that was on sale at Bloomingdale's. Funny how easy that decision was, but I am happy with my purchase.

Saturday night, the mayor and I had dinner at Carroll Street Cafe. This was my first experience at this restaurant, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The mussels were my favorite. I had the crab stuffed trout, and the mayor, well he had chicken...and I am not talking about the kind found in WetBar.

And then there was Sunday. JohnBrown had a small gathering at his house for lunch. Tammee was in town, so that was more than enough reason to celebrate. The BLTs were delicious, but my favorite thing was the vidalia onion pie. After a short monsoon, I headed over to Shout for my weekly gig. The Assistant arrived with gifts in hand, something he picked up on one of his many european travels. Guest appearance by Dale and Traci brought a big smile to my face. Then it was back to JohnBrown's for a little dance off in the living room.

Retro tune of the day: Newcleus - Jam on It. Released back in 1984, this was the big hit for me at my Breakdancing Birthday party. I heard this little number this past weekend for the first time in probably 10 years, and it brought back a lot of memories.
