“Not Your Girl” Bree Sharp

I stutter like a broken clutch
When you touch me too much
My tounge gets twisted in your twirl
You say I’m not your kind of girl
A spider underneath my skin
I want you out, I want you in
The venom and the vaccine swirl
You say I’m not your kind of girl
What kind of girl should I be
The kind of girl who doesn’t see
That you’re looking at me like you wanna be seeing someone else
Somebody else
You rip the sureness from my stare
And throw the pieces in the air
Your fingers string me like a pearl
You say I’m not your kind of girl
Its not a secret anymore
What you keep me around for
As my excuses all unfurl
I’m not that kind of kind of girl
See somebody else
See somebody else
See somebody else
(I want you to)
See somebody else
(See somebody)
See somebody else
(I want you to)
See somebody else
(See somebody)
I want you to see somebody else

Happy Hour

3195 Wilson Boulevard
Arlington, Virginia 22201
703.465.9360 phone
703.465.9363 fax

Last night we went out for happy hour at the Liberty Tavern in Clarendon.

Everyone had beer except for me. I decided to have the Altos Las Hormigas Malbec. Malbec is a red wine from Argentina that I really love. This particular bottle was $34 a bottle at Liberty Tavern. I found it on-line for $10.99.

During my second glass of Malbec I ordered the cheese platter. I asked for 3 cheeses, my only requirement was that one was a blue. The other two were surprises. Unfortunately I have no idea what they were. I asked but it was too loud to understand. All the cheeses were good. The blue one was fantastic in that it tasted like a mix between a smoked Gouda and a blue. YUM!

A tale of BFF’s

I find myself very fortunate to have not one, but several BFF’s. so often during conversations with acquaintances I just use the term “best friend” as in “my best friend and I went to Starbucks” I rarely use names, so I can only imagine that most people think that I have one best friend that I always talk about, when in fact it’s really three people.

Veritablerika and I grew up on the same street. She and I became friend when I was still in catholic school. To the best of my knowledge we were around 7. We used to always watch Disney musicals and sing together. Later we ended up singing in choir together through high school.

The Pink Pen and I grew up in the same neighborhood and met one fateful day at the neighborhood pool. I think we were about 9. We used to play with her American girl dolls and make up stories about ghost in the basement.

The three of us have been very close for a very long time and I count them as family. Veritablerika now lives about 4 hours away give or take depending on traffic, and The Pink Pen has recently moved to NYC. I miss them both but we still talk, IM, and e-mail.

And then there was Shroomy. Shroomy and I met on the last day of the seventh grade and were inseparable until she moved an hour away after the 8th grade. She and I have continued to remain close and still finish our sentences when together. I will be standing up next to her at her wedding next month as her MOH.

I also have some “best” guy friends and a few other girls, but when I talk about these people I use their names “my best friend (insert name here)”

The best part is that almost all of my friends get along and for the most part our significant others have been welcomed into the group with open arms. I feel blessed to have such great friends!

What we ended up doing Saturday night…

We did indeed end up going to the Melting pot. There were 7 girls in all. We decided to get cheese, salad, and chocolate only because one of the girls was a vegetarian and could not stand to cook her vegetables in the same pot as the meats and because it would be easier on the wallet. Dinner was nice. The waiter gave Shroomy a copy of the new Melting Pot cook book and gave me a brand new shaker of garlic and wine seasoning.

After dinner most of the girls bailed and Shroomy, Crystal (Shroomy’s cousin) and I went to the American Tap Room. We had a great time. We took a ton of pictures of Shroomy with a bunch of random guys. And some creepy guy bought us drinks. I had two shots of Tequila and a beer and then I was done because I had to drive the girls back to my house. We were the last ones out of the bar at 2am when it closed.

Because of a mix up about who was driving who home, Pete, the groom to be, had to drive to my house at 2am from Winchester to pick up Shroomy and Crystal, so they finally left at 3ish and I went to bed.

The whole night Shroomy wore a veil (no it did not have penises on it!), a garter on top of her jeans on each leg, and a flashing sash that read Miss Outta Control Bachlorette. Hopefully she will give me some of the pictures so I can post them here.

I Hate Your Wedding!

I admit that I stalk wedding blogs constantly. My one problem with many of the wedding blogs is that they are written by the brides themselves or the planners who are so full of pride of what they have accomplished from DIY invites and flowers, to couture dresses, to the wedding cake design. often they inspire me and I tuck the ideas away in a little corner of my brain, BUT sometimes I HATE their weddings and I want to comment and tell them so and I can’t, because I don’t want to hurt there feelings.

Some times it’s just a little detail that I don’t like and sometimes it’s the entire thing. One blog in particular is about this huge glamorous extravaganza and every single post about this wedding is boring and cliché. The bride is SO freaking happy about how here wedding went and all I can think is BORING!

Don’t be that bride. Don’t go overboard and end up boring!

Bachlorette Woes

so tonight is supposed to be Shroomy’s bachlorette party. i have a cold, and my grandfather’s brother died this morning.

the plan was to drive to Hanover and go to Medieval Times, Dave and Busters, and spend the night in a hotel. but it’s been so hard trying to get the girls organized that now it looks like it just might be 3 of us. Melting pot has an opening at 9:30 just in case we decided to do something a bit more local.

i kinda hope we decide to go to the Melting Pot. the Hanover trip will be a lot more expensive, and I’m not feeling so hot.

I’ll keep you posted as to what happens.
