Best present: this homemade cloud monster (note clouds and lightning bolts), complete with tag reading "Kristina Wong made this instead of smoking crack."
Early Friday evening, despite
sassing my boyfriend
falling completely on my ass when attempting to sit down (my chair had fallen back from the weight of coats), resulting in the blossoming of multiple bday bruises, kicked off a weekend which solidly ruled from there on. (Pictured: Julie Klausner, fellow bday girl Therese, et moi.)
Saturday: watched this while shouting lots of feedback at the screen:
Sat night: Ten hooting and hollering people packed my living room to watch this awfulsome movie that I'm rather obsessed with: The Room
Sunday: Continuing the Pam Grier/afros/70s fashions/ass-kicking lovefest, started the day with this:
Followed with this:
This documentary, Jesus Camp
, left me with a lingering case of the fear, but I highly recommend it--it shows how Evangelical Christians are creating an army of indoctrinated children and amassing formidable political leverage.
Sunday night: And speaking of obsessions and recommendations, went to pals Julie & Jackie's awesome comedy show, Obsessed
, where comics and regular folks present for your entertainment evidence of their obsessions, with special guest Janeane Garofolo (obsession: HBO's Rome). Not only was the show hilarious (and dare I say uproariously funny at times), but I also scarfed a brick of Mo Pitkins' deep-fried mac cheese.
My beau and I topped it off by cramming delicious vegan cake into our pie holes at Moby's vegan teahouse Teany. I didn't tell Mobes about the mac cheese.
