Birthday Booty

Last year, my birthday was okay but was followed by a series of unfortunate events. This year, I've started off on the right foot with my monster trip to Arkansas, two John Mayer concerts, news that Write Act will produce Torrid Affaire, and two big bonuses at work.

For my birthday, my boss sneaked around all morning, trying to plan a birthday party for me when I'm usually the person who takes care of parties. My co-workers gave me a cute little party with a cute little chocolate cake. They also gave me a whole lot of chocolate, a Starbucks gift card and an American Express gift card. On top of that, the boss bought me lunch from our favorite local take-out place. That's the most booty I've gotten from work for my birthday.

Then Andrew and I went to drag queen bingo at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood. There was only one drag queen hosting, and the waiters weren't dressed in drag (which is what I expected from the website). The food was good, the bingo was fun and loud. We didn't win anything. Every week they give the admission and auction money to a certain charity. Last night was an AIDS awareness group. They auctioned off $250 worth of lube, and a guy in the back kept shooting his hand in the air every time the price went up. We also got free packets of lube and condoms, courtesy of the charity group. Nice gesture, but I don't think we're going to keep them.

After that, we went to the MAC store and I got more foundation and some powder. This was the first time I was waited on by someone who didn't really want to help me. He was a terrible listener. If he had been just a little more interested in me and what I wanted to buy, he would've sold me the concealer I asked for, a new blush brush and some lip gloss. Next time I'll buy from someone who cares. Frederick's closed before we got there, so I'll have to get something from them later. We also hit Amoeba, the most amazing music store ever, and Andrew bought me the white album on CD. Bootylicious.
