Yes, the title of this post is “The weekend in review”. Does this mean I did a lot this weekend? The answer is, “No, not really.”
While I was on my way back from lunch on Friday, Louie called me and asked if I wanted to go to a salsa club called “Club Tropicana” that night. I didn’t have any problem with doing so, but I’d be lying if I said I was dressed for it. (I was wearing blue jeans and a white polo shirt.) Anyway, after work, I headed over to his place; from there, we went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory in the Galleria, and then went over to Club Tropicana. We got there just in time for the second half of the salsa lesson, which I watched but didn’t participate in. (There weren’t enough partners there.) After the salsa started, I basically spent the evening walking around the club, watching, and having a couple of drinks. From there, we went back to Louie’s apartment so I could get my car, and then headed home.
Saturday morning and afternoon were rather uneventful. The most I did was watch episodes of SG-1, Atlantis, and Battlestar Galactica that I had recorded on my TiVo. Then, I headed back down to Louie’s apartment at sometime between 5:30 and 6:00. From there, we hit P.F. Chang’s for dinner, and then spent a little time at Barnes & Noble before going back to Club Tropicana. Basically, from there, it was a repeat of the previous night.
I’m not sure I’ll go back, really. Unfortunately, my brain is wired in such a way that dance clubs are an absolutely alien and incompatible environment for me. It’s a nice club if you’re into dancing, don’t get me wrong. It just… didn’t click for me. It never does. Hell, Dementia/Jesse will tell anyone that the one time I went out onto the dance floor, I had to be dragged out.
Anyway, I had planned on going to the mall today, but unfortunately that idea got nixed for various reasons. I’ll need to get a couple more pairs of khakis, plus a new CD tower or CD cabinet. I’m out of space in my CD towers, and I already have one CD waiting to go in (Nine Inch Nails’s With Teeth). I might also get a new pair of shoes. Oh, well… I can always go sometime after work this week. Then, on Sunday, I leave for Las Vegas. It’ll be good to get away from it all for a few days.
Anyway, time for me to order dinner… Chinese again, but something other than General T’so chicken this time around.
