In Which I Reveal The Secrets of Kate

Kate with her Godfather

As I was leaving the benefit party for Richard Hugo House last Thursday, I told Brian I would come back from my weekend away with Kate ready to reveal all her secrets. Would I go back on my word to Brian? Of course not.

So here we go:

  • She didn't know the difference between landjaeger and lanyards before this weekend. She kinda still doesn't. But that won't stop her from eating landjaeger for breakfast.
  • She once took a decoration off the wall of the bathroom at a certain Georgetown bar to examine it's prettiness, then panicked when she couldn't get it back on the wall. She did not, however, put it in her purse and take it home, though some people would have. Not our Kate.
  • She is ready for some new pajamas.
  • If you want to buy her a drink, try a Dark and Stormy, or a Godfather (scotch with a splash of amaretto).
  • She's one of those people who actually genuinely likes her job. It's probably because she works at Hugo House with Brian, huh?
  • She loves her poncho.
  • She loves the Maldives. Somethin fierce. Keep that in mind if you're thinking about the drink buyin thing.
  • She's an old soul in a pretty young package. The only thing that gives away her extreme youth is her lack of knowledge of the Willie Nelson albums of the 1970s.
  • She is so charming that people find themselves wanting to give her things. All the time. Like free belts and bath fizzies.
  • She's jonesin for some bath fizzies. Right now, probably.
Mmkay, that's all I'm gonna tell you. Though I might know some other things.

We bought Jessica an apple as big as her head, for a present. Cause we're nice like that.

Kate and I had a great time in the Skagit Valley this weekend. We made a new friend, Jessica, of Lucky Dumpster fame. Cause Kate's like that, she makes friends easily, which is apparent if you go anywhere with her, because she knows everyone. Sometimes I think I know a lot of people, but not like Kate. I think I just know a lot of people who know a lot of people. Like Kate, and Jay and the baristas.

Kate, me, Jess

Damn, I've had some good girl time lately. Road trip with Katherine, week with the writing women, Tami as my roommate and now Kate's Great Vacation. Good good stuff.

Remember Beer Beer? We were so excited about this find at the LaConner Pub.

Wish I was gonna get to see my seester for her birthday later this week. Whatcha got planned, Ali? I think you should get Euge to bring you some extra special takeout, then chill on the couch wearing a crown and watching girly stuff he wouldn't watch on any day other than your birthday. While he rubs your feet.

Okay, that doesn't sound very nice, because obviously Kate is quite cute enough on her very own, as is her friend, what's her name.

Hey, remind me to tell A. that any common verdicchio goes great with Nestles semi sweet chocolate chips.

what? No, I haven't been drinking. I'm just compiling my own cellarnotes.

OMG, I love it when you've been drinking, K! Now go to LtYExBF and write me somethin.

I wuaz too tired. Pretty sure I dreamt of Ewan MacGregor though, and probably will until BBC2 starts showing episodes of Long Way Down, which I am really looking forward to... Ewan - on a motorbike. Sigh...
I also think the whole Jedi knight angle serves him well.
