It’s Friday and it’s early and I was up way too late last night. I should still be asleep but I’m too excited about the weekend. Because of the plans, y’all. There are lots of plans.
Last night I went over to K’s house and we put our creative minds together to work on rewrites for a project we’re doing. We’re doing some charity work, y’all. Last month, I was invited to be part of the world-famous caroling group “The Carol Brunettes” as we participate in the 24th annual Figgy Pudding on December 3rd. We’re raising money for Pike Market Senior Center and Downtown Food Bank. It’s an excellent cause during a time of year that more people than ever need food and a bit of holiday cheer.
The Carol Brunettes are known for lovely voices and creative holiday rewrites of pop songs. Examples include “I Love Mistletoe” (to the tune of I Love Rock and Roll) and “Reindeer Rhapsody” (Bohemian Rhapsody). This year will also include some awesome dancing and choreography.

After we finalized lyrics to our set list, K and I headed over to Hula Hula for some girls’ night karaoke. I’m sorry to say I performed “Me and Bobby McGee” which, turns out, sounds WAY better in my shower. I needed redemption so K and I brought down the house with our performance of “Shoop”. She does the Salt n Pepa part and I do the dude’s rap at the end. It’s fairly awesome.
This weekend also promises to be fairly awesome. Today the kids and I are going to do a baking project. We’re celebrating Miss D’s birthday tomorrow night and she’s requested a cheesecake. Baby Girl is especially interested in cooking right now, so we’ll pull the highchairs into the kitchen and let her pour and mix.
Tonight is one of my favorite nights of the year. After a disco nap, I’ll meet up with my favorite people for prefunk drinks before we head over to Hump! Hump! is the annual amateur porn film festival and is always SO MUCH fun. We have tickets to the midnight show and I seriously can’t wait.
The rest of the weekend is going to be full of celebrating birthdays and loving on the amazing friends I have out here in Seattle. (It’s weekends like these that make me happy I don’t work on Mondays. With all the full weekends I’ve been having, I’ve really needed that third day to recover and relax and get normal, grown-up stuff accomplished.)
It’s fall in Seattle and I couldn’t be happier. I hope you guys all have wonderful weekends planned!
