Sunday was the perfect close to my weekend. I dragged my sister and Jenn to American Apparel, where I made them bring me every leotard in the store and then spent an hour trying them on with different combinations of leggings.
[ An outfit that didn't make the cut ]
I settled on black & white stripes with red, which was the vision I had, but had totally missed the mark with the outfit I ordered online.
After my performance outfit was settled, we met up with my parents for dinner at Bastone and had amazing pizza with mushrooms, goat cheese and truffle oil. When we were sufficiently stuffed I dropped Kate off to work at the street fair and then met up with Jenn again to walk over ourselves.
I somehow managed to have a crazy fun night without spending a dollar. I made gin and juice for Jenn and I to take to the street fair, got handed a couple beer tickets and then the beer-pourers ended up being so drunk themselves they stopped noticing if we handed over tickets or not.
We decided, due to the massive crowd, it was the perfect time for a musical moment and breaking out into song. We got our wish when The Silent Years led everyone in a 4 Non Blondes sing-a-long. We hung out with my sister at her post on the outskirts of the fair, bringing her beer and keeping her and the passersby entertained. I managed to drunk text someone and scored a date – with only one spelling error I might add! I saw some old friends and met a few new ones. And at the end of the night, everyone piled into the Loving Touch and The Summer Pledge brought down the house. We were all crammed around the tiny stage, arms in the air, clapping and singing.
Around 1 or 2 Kate and I stumbled home, the streets empty of booths and fair-goers, my feet aching and so ready for sleep.09.20.10 in besties, shows
