Don't hire me to paint your house.

My skills are more of the drink-beer-and-interpret-zoning-codes variety.

Friday was our company's enforced community service day. Every October we close the office for one day and go out to paint, landscape, or otherwise assist one of the partners we've worked with in recent times. And frankly, we aren't all that good at it, or very efficient. But the focus of the day is to get people who normally work behind the scenes feel more connected to the business of maintaining affordable housing where we live.

Is it worthwhile? I don't know. But I spent five hours painting stairwells in Arlington yesterday instead of sitting at my desk, then I got a steak quesadilla from CalTort and ate it outside. And it was a lovely Friday. :)

Last night I drove Brian to work and then stopped at Giant to pick up a bottle of wine. Even with a totally new building that place retains the weird vibe it's always had. They claim to be open until midnight, but when I got there at 10:02 the main entrance was blocked by a row of shopping carts and I had to enter through the exit and walk all the way around the cash registers to get in to the store. I want to give you guys money; don't make it harder for me to do that! Cashier was sooper nice, at least.

From there I parked the car and took the wine to Cezanne's birthday party. His boyfriend has a gorgeous apartment and it was filled to the brim with boisterous people. I spent most of the time talking to Mario and his labmates, then met a guy (Casey) that apparently I knew back in NC. He's living in Tenley for a short period while in the city, unsure if he will stay for longer.

After a few drinks and forkfuls of cake, we went to Nine. Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen were there, making for a ridiculous crush of people trying to gawk at them. We stayed downstairs except for a quick peek, but that was well timed. This morning Andrew sent me the following photo from the bar's Facebook page.



I'm adjacent to fame! Or something.
