Mark another thing of my list

So last night my friend Rocky and I headed out ot the Birmingham Museum of Art. Yeah I know, you're shocked that Alabama has an art museum, actually there are several, B'ham just has the largest one.

Anyway, so last night was a charity type event to raise money for the museum. They call it Art on the Rocks.

They have the art there already (obviously) and they get a band to come in and play. They have finger foods and you can get alcohol if you'd like. Sounds good, huh?

I've never seen a bigger meatmarket for people 22-35 years old in my life! There were easily 5,000 people there. It was awful, it was too warm, everyone was sweating.

We stayed for about an hour and left. The plan was to stay at the museum until this club that Rocky likes opens up. We left too early and didn't want to stay downtown. At least when it comes up in conversation, I can say I've been to AOTR.

What a wonderfully exciting life I lead. I'm wanting to go to the beach really bad. I need to be face down with a snorkle in my mouth looking at fishies. So relaxing, so tranquil. Oh well, Hva a good a Saturday everyone Mac

LOL at norprin...that's not the kind of saltwater Mac had in mind at this particular moment, I don't think!

I hate cocktail receptions in the summer...when I'm already sweating, I don't like to drink alcohol 'cause it just makes me warmer. I've been to two this past week and all I did was chug icewater while making small talk. Still, met some interesting people.

I met no one. Saw some intersting exhibits though and oddly enough more penises than on AdultFriendFinder! (in the form of carvings and whatnot)

Yes we do have several nice museums. Have you ever gone up to the Wedgewood room at the BMA. I love it. If you are ever downtown, check it out.

I love the Gulf of Mexico, it's "my" beach. It's beautiful, the California Pacific coast cannot compare.

If I were you I'd be getting to the beach. The weather here is no good at the moment for snorkeling and I'm missing it. Make the most of summer while it lasts, though it probably never gets really cold there?

absolutelynormal replies on 7/24/2006 6:55 pm:
I'm about 4.5 hours from the beach, Chasing. It does get cold where I go to the beach. It's even snowed at the beach a few times. The water starts getting too cold 'bout September and then doesn't get warm enough again till end of April, beginning of May. When I was married to Mr. Moneybags, we probably went 4-5 times a year. I miss that, but not him.

I'm all for the beach, too. I'll throw in a very thorough application of sunscreen, and finish the day off with a relaxing meal beachside. Margaritas or piƱa coladas?

You said your son just got through doing that, I thought you meant he'd been to Art on the Rocks, plus I knew you'd been on the mainland and thought maybe you knew someone here. Yeah, wish I were in Maui looking at fishies.

I knew I should have gone to AOTR. That's two months in a row. Definitely got to make the August one...

Ah, you repressed Alabamians! Sheesh, talk about "look but don't touch" pressure...
