New Things

Weekend Recap


Movies/ TV/ Books

I saw the new wolverine movie with Frank. It was A-Freaking-Mazing! I LOVED it!
I will say that X-Men is my favorite comic book movie chain by far. I loved the first three movies, so if you didn't like those, then you wouldn't like this one. I don't want to give away anything, but basically it's the story of the origins of Wolverine. I am a huge Wolverine fan, and please let me clarify. I am not a huge Hugh Jackman fan, but I want to marry Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. He's phenomenal. Also, you see him nakey. I highly recommend this movie to everyone. Also, be sure to stay till the end of the credits. There is a clip at the very very end.


Tea Party at Anna's House.

It was great. If you read my blog regularly then you know I am a huge fan of the tea party. Everytime I babysit I play tea party with the little girls, not because they want to, but because I want to. Anna's party gave me a reason to get all gussied up and pretend to be a grownup, when really I just like to play tea party. I had a fabulous time.


From the Foodie in Me
Adam's Morgan

I got up early with Fernando and headed to watch him play soccer (alright, I'm lying, i was knitting while he played soccer). After his game we headed to Adams Morgan to eat at the Spanish Market. This time we stopped by this hole in the wall taco place and I found Menudo.
I was ridiculously excited. We walked up and down the "strip" (a block long walk), and then headed home. Who knew that this Spanish community existed in the heart of Adam's Morgan.

The deliciousness that is Menudo. Mmmm.

Tacos from the taco stand in Adam's Morgan.
I decided to take a picture after I was halfway thru my first taco.
New Things
Everytime I type VPL I immediately think "Visible Panty Lines". I blame Sarah Roy and the recruitment committee. During sorority rush one of the rules was no VPL. They are trashy and uncalled for. We actually were checked by the recruitment committee to ensure that each of our outfits was perfect for rush.
However this time VPL stands for Virginia Pool League. I recently joined and last night was our first game. I am a huge fan already. Everyone is really nice. Most of the players are a bit older (40's) but there are like 5 of us in our 20's. I'm not the best player, but I'm not the worst, so that is comforting. Plus we play with a handicap, so it all evens out. I'm really excited to be playing pool again. I played so much in college and I actually got really good for awhile, but it's all just a memory right now. I'll be back next Monday for sure. I might even go pick out a new cue this weekend if I have time.
I don't often mention my work on here because I want this to be a fun blog, but today I must.
I was recently given a third person to be "in charge of". I am now the only full time employee in the education practice in DC. That's a HUGE job. I'm booking clients, negotiating fees, interviewing references, it's insane. I'm hoping that when we have reviews in a month I'll get a big fat pay raise to compensate for my added duties, but we shall see.
I'm kind of anxious to start all this by myself, but I suppose it will be an adventure.
Grinds My Gears
Loyola University
Seriously, I paid 60K and there is no alumni network. I've emailed and called the president of the Washington alumni chapter and they never respond to me. It's so ill run. It really just ticks me off royally. I'm thinking about going to grad school just to have an alumni organization to hang out with.
Personal Fact of the Day (it's not weird today).
GMU asked me to be their AVP advisor. I said yes. I have never held the AVP position. This should be interesting.


  1. what is AVP? always visable panties?

  2. I love the VPL reminder! One of my girlfriends who wasn't in a sorority asked me if I could see her panty line the other day and it totally brought me back to rush!

    I'm excited to hear that you'll be the avp advisor at GMU. There's an awesome online advisor training program so don't worry about it you'll learn everything you ever needed to know (and more) and they have the online efficiency report at www.gammaphibeta.org so I think it's one of the easier advisor positions! You'll do great!
