Thursday night after much begging, (and threatening to go downtown and buy an all pink set FOR $67) Mom finally let me have one of THREE sets of her Pyrex bowls!
(They match and didn't even plan it!)Saturday afternoon friends Emily and Patricia dropped in and stayed for dinner, we had hamburger steak with homemade mashed potato's and green beans. While we were cooking dinner I just so happened to check Facebook and my friend/ reader Brian is a DJ/ talk host for a radio station, he posts that hes on air. So we go to Talk1300.com and Listen to the Saturday night quiz show. We spent a good 45 minuets screaming answers at the lap top and playing along! I write that on Brian's wall and he messages back "Im going to say Hi at the top of the hour" So we all pull out kitchen chairs around the lap top and listen to 15 minuets of Albany NY news, then finally we hear the "Call" Letters and the jingle for the show and-
WE LOSE THE INTERNET CONNECTION!!!!
(Emily screams NOOOOOO! while Patricia yells "WHY GOD?! WHY?!)WERE SO UPSET WE TORE THE LOUNGE APART!!!! While I frantically tried to get the connection back we all were screaming, yelling, and hoping we hadn't missed it... but alas we had. (we eventually made peace with it and put the living room back together.) If I understood correctly "Darwin" is Brian's radio name so we wanted to give him a proper Casablanca thank you! He also gave us a new post card quote calling the Casablanca a "Mid-century paradise" !
After the dishes were washed, we all settled into the turquoise room for a game of Monopoly and some quality "I Love Lucy" TV time.
Earlier I had mentioned to Patricia that there was an entire suitcase full of board games but we hadn't played any of them in a year or so, but couldn't remember why... After an intense game of Monopoly I now vividly recall why we put the games up haha!
("I'LL BUY IT!)
(Patricia spent the majority of the evening 'Going directly to jail and not passing go'.)
(While both Emily and Myself received 'Get out of Jail Free' cards)
After Patricia had mortgaged everything she , I put all my money into a house and a hotel, so Emily won the game with the most holdings, tensions were high so we put together a puzzle and watched "Chicago" until we were calm enough to speak to one another again haha!
All in all just another normal weekend at the Casablanca.
