the devil's playground & a dirty hooker

i think i have way too much on my mind to convey any one particular thought clearly tonight.
watched "the devil's playground" a documentary about amish kids who experience rumspringa; on their 16th birthday, they get to go out into the world of the "english" (me and you and everybody else who's not amish) and do everything they can't do in the amish community before they decide whether or not they're going to join the amish church, which is a lifetime commitment. drugs, sex, alcohol, parties, tattoos, cars (how strange is that? culture shock.) bluejeans, haircuts, makeup, perfume, cellphones... i had really high hopes, because i love documentaries, but i should learn to qualify that with "good documentaries". this was mediocre at best. an interesting glimpse into a world that i admittedly know nothing about, but not interesting enough to keep me from looking away and wishing it was over.


ate a dinner of a whole avocado sliced in half and pitted, sprinkled with kosher salt and devoured with a spoon just like a savage. i'm okay with that. then i had two twinkies, because they were, um, gonna go bad. yeah. that's why i ate them both. waste not, want not... whatever.

watching high art right now, one of my favorite movies.

decided on the list of cocktails (martinis) for the quickly approaching swanky cocktail party:

  • peppermint patty martini
  • pomegranate martinis (my favorite!)
  • chocolate martinis
  • dirty hooker martinis (my other favorite, just because of the name)
  • salty dog martinis

also serving red & white wines, and there will be champagne after 10pm. non-alcoholic beverages will be served as well, for the non-alcoholics. (virgins for the virgins?)

my mother is making several canapes and hors d'oeuvres, bless her. my mother has never created anything in her kitchen that wasn't unbelievably fabulous, and these little noshables will be no exception.

white petites fours have been ordered, and they've spelled out "happy birthday melissa" on twenty of them, one letter each. how very swanky and glamourous. i'm hoping to get plenty of photos of the food, drinks, and of course, the cocktail party revelers. since i'm not a big drinker, i'm not anticipating being too drunk to take a few good photos, and of course the portraits start after 10pm...

i extended my days off to include tuesday - i can't believe i'm off for five whole days in a row... tomorrow is my last work day for five entire planet earth days, and i couldn't be happier.

or busier...

    hahahaha!!! you're probably the last person on earth who remembers that... nobody here seems to get the joke even though the resemblance is still just uncanny. spooky.
