OK, ok, I'm back. Hi.
Two weeks ago I was in DC for a little fam-vacay. DC was as fun as ever, and remains one of my favorite cities in the world (other favorite cities in the world London, Paris, and Chicago). This trip to DC was different than any I've had before. We stayed in Alexandria, took time to "discover" Alexandria, and went to some new places in DC... I won't bore you with details. Of course, the highlight of the trip was arriving on Saturday and running to the bar where the U of M Alumni Club was watching the UM/Notre Dame game. Awesome. Plus, a friend of mine won a t-shirt and football tix... I'm always happy to help a friend.
After getting back from DC, E came to Ann Arbor. Drunken escapades ensued. On the Sunday after the Wisconsin game, I worked a tour of Michigan Stadium. Sweet because I got to throw a football around on the field, went into the locker room, and went into teh press box. Have I mentioned that I like my job? :)
Sunday night, E and I went bar hopping. (Note: bar hopping in Ann Arbor on a Sunday night is a snooze-fest.) We ended up staying most of the night at the Brown Jug. Holy crap! I'm now officially semi-boycotting the Brown Jug. Going up to the bar and getting drinks was no problem. Asking for a menu from a waiter was no problem. But getting someone to take our food order, BIG problem. No one ever came, no waiter or waitress ever made eye-contact with us, and I even tried waving to get someone's, anyone's attention. WTF. Seriously, it just became a matter of principle. I wasn't about to make a scene and yell or something to get the attention of someone who I'd be giving my money to and possibly tipping. Rediculous.
E took off on Monday and I ended up going to Warren to pick up my newly repaired speakers and amp. Woo hoo! I feel like a complete DJ again. Tuesday, I died with sickness, but recovered enough to get back to work for Wednesday-Friday.
I DJed another successful/fun night at Gotham City. That little room in the back of a big building is me. It's dark, it's loud, and I can interact with the crowd. Lest I forget, I also get paid. Not that it was ever needed, but it does feel nice to be consistently paid for DJing finally.
Well, that was my last two weeks in a nutshell [insert Austin Powers joke here]. Now that things have once again settled a bit, hopefully I'll keep up on blogging a little better.
PS - GO TIGERS!
