Catching Up

There has been so much going on, I need to fill you all in… I did attempt to post a couple of times, but Blogger hates me. So here is what my Blog SHOULD have looked like:

Fri, Aug 9th: Starzz game tonight. I hadn’t been to one, but have always wanted to. A friend of Lindi’s gave her a 5-pass so we took Grace, Sarah and Sarah’s friend Summer. The five of us had a ball. What is funny is that I won tickets to Monda Night’s game off the radio this morning! So I get to see them twice, and on Monday, it’s the last game of the season. I rock!
Grace told me a friend of ours, one of the teachers of our EMT class, passed away a few weeks ago. I have to say it was very hard for me to deal with that. Cathy was an incredible person. She was funny and smart and the damn best teacher I had. She died of cancer, and I feel robbed that I didn’t get a chance to pay my respects and attend her funeral. Funerals for me are a part of the closure and without it, it takes longer for me to accept death. It took me 2 years to get over the death of my HS friend Melisa. I am angry at Russ, our old EMT Director, for not calling us and letting us know. I feel slighted and very pissed off. Second friend gone in 2 months. Shit.

Mon, Aug 12th: Off to the Starzz game. The tickets were 8th row from the floor, and we got to see absolutely everything. The Delta center was alive with people, everyone enjoyed the game, especially since we won. Lindi was like a kid, and the bonus was seeing all the pretty little lesbians in training everywhere.

Wed, Aug 14th: Got a call from my friend, who happened to have two extra tickets, lower bowl, center stage, for CHER! My God, that woman is incredible. Her opening act was Cyndi Lauper and Lindi and I have a new-found respect for that woman. She has a powerful voice and very personable, very classy. She draped herself with the Rainbow Pride flag during “True Colors” and had the entire Delta Center screaming like little girls. And Cher, well, Cher is a Goddess in every sense of the word. Her show was a tapestry of 14 costume changes, circus performers, hella dancers and incredible vocals, including challenging young Divas like Britney Spears and J.Lo to “Follow THIS, you bitches!” She is amazing, and being with Lindi made it doubly fantastic, since she is a Cher fan, too.

Fri, Aug 16th and Sat, Aug 17th: The day is here! Lindi picked me up from my house and we drove to Park City for our romantic evening up at Marriott’s Mountainside Villa Resort. The suite was incredible, a bath as large as a Queen Size bed, huge shower, beautiful view, full kitchen… amazing. She toured me around the room and I smiled when I realized there were rose petals covering every inch of the suite, from the tub to the bed to the kitchen with full roses in a vase, as well as candles everywhere. I even had a new friend, a cute little stuffed cow, waiting for me! She cooked me dinner while I ran a hot bath for myself (which took 20 minutes to fill!) and soaked, drank chilled wine and played with bubbles until dinner was ready. Salad, spaghetti and chocolate covered grapes for dessert… very good. We watched a movie and just relaxed the whole evening. It was wonderful and very romantic.

The next morning, we checked out at 10am and went out to Deer Valley for breakfast to a little restaurant that overlooked a river, sat outside on the patio and enjoyed wonderful omelettes while watching ducks and dogs. After, we headed into Park City and walked Main Street, stopping here and there… Lindi bought me a caramel apple and she a frozen banana… NUMMY!!! We also headed out to the Factory Stores, Nike, Zales, Books, just a great time. We ecven got our ears pierced (I was going to get my second top piercing in my right ear done, and Lindi said it wasn't right that I had one more piercing than her.... typical woman *wink*... so we got matching top piercings.) I really didn’t want to go back to reality, but we all must at some point, so we headed back to Salt Lake and arrived at 5pm.

Saturday Night we all went out dancing, including Jennifer, who ended up dancing the night away with a lovely guy named Christian. Leave it to Jenn to find the ONE single, straight guy in a lesbian bar!!! I danced until the place closed then we went out to breakfast to sober up my friend Deanna. Rolled into bed at 4am. GAWD!!!!
