Labor Day Happenings

I can't say Labor Day weekend was very exciting this year, the one perk was instead of a 3 day weekend we made it into a 4. The original plan was to take off to the river but b/c of financial constraints we figured it was not in our best interest to go. My parents invited us to Mexico for the weekend which would have been virtually a free trip *minus the boozing and gallivanting* but somehow we missed out on that too.

Friday was just running errands and taking Aaron to the doctor. His arm is still not feeling well from the accident. There is this lady we call the witch doctor that I went to a couple of weeks ago b/c I had pinched a nerve in my neck that I have been trying Aaron to go to but he is scared. Hey if I can take the pain and then feel better why can't he. The regular doctor just gave him pain medication which he can only take at night and then told him to go see a massage therapist. We will have to go tonight.

During the evening we went to see John Williams @ the Hollywood Bowl. Before we had the tickets I had no idea who John Williams was. Turns out he is the guy who did all the music to some of the super nerdy movies like Star Wars *covering self from rotten tomatoes.* The night was beautiful and warm. The place was packed and they were selling wine at the concession stands by the bottle. White wine + hot summer night = Good Times!

Saturday we went to the Getty. I haven't been to the Getty in years. We decided to go this weekend b/c we had no chitlin in tow and wanted to enjoy the museum without any screaming, tickling or "poofers". We didn't have a proper camera and the battery on my cell phone was almost dead so we used Aaron's Treo. That thing is so retarded we had to set the exposure with our hand and finagle it to get some decent color in the pictures. We ran around like teenagers and the exhibits were pretty cool. Aaron is in love with one of the artist on display. I a sure those pictures will be posted on his site, so I won't even bother. There was a party to go to that night but the Getty is closing late during the summer so by the time we were coming back from LA we weren't dressed for it and it was just too late. Still Happy Birthday Scotty McHotty.* Getting old at 25.* ;)

Sunday/Monday we did a whole bunch of nothing mixed in with some cleaning. We now have a functional wet bar that is only slightly stocked but it will be built up after a while. Aaron ditched me for college football with his dad so I ended up going to go see "Invincible" starring Mark  Walberg. My friend Tim was so kind to take me out of my boredom and we had a good ol' time. I was surprised at how good Marky Mark was in this film. I still think of him in his Calvin Klein's trying to be "hard." Ha!
