It’s been a crazy weekend, you might say. Friday night, Marc and I went to the opera (we love opera, and one of my best friends works for the opera company, so we’re supporting!)
I especially love dressing up. It was la Traviata, not my favorite (a bit too much dying of consumption for my taste) but the cast was phenomenal!
Saturday we made a trek to Cincinnati, to see Marc’s parents and go to Ikea (I finally got a new dressing table, and I am super excited to get my stuff out of the bathroom where guests and students can’t see it!)
We got back pretty late, and went to bed. We woke up at 4 am to the sound of someone opening our front door. I woke up Marc, who armed himself with our only real weapon, a fire extinguisher, and called 911. We stayed shut it our room, as we heard someone coming up the stairs. I don’t mind saying that I was completely terrified! The police arrived and, as it turned out, there was a drunk stranger passed out in the bed in our guest room. One of the policemen attempted to calm me by saying “don’t worry, we get this sort of thing all the time!” which was somewhat less than comforting. Of course, the guy had decided that it would be a good idea to lose his pants in our foyer, so our neighbors got to witness someone without pants being dragged out of our house at 4:30 am.
As it turns out, I had left the keys in the front door when we got back so late, and the drunk thought he had made it to his friends’ house near us (and they had thoughtfully left the keys!) Don’t ask me how he failed to notice that he was not even faintly in the right house. He called this morning to apologize profusely and with much embarrassment.
I love my neighborhood, and wouldn’t leave it for anything, but tomorrow we are so getting an alarm system, so as to avoid more confused drunks!
Ahem… I have also been crocheting, although not since Friday! After crocheting the yoke of my sweater at least twice, I’m on the body, which is pretty smooth sailing.
If you make this pattern, be sure to count your stitches after each row of the yoke – I could have saved myself so much trouble that way.
Happy Monday everyone – here’s hoping for a great week!
