Last night I represented Girlfriendology.com at the gathering called MyChateau.
The event was at the Malton Gallery which is one of those places I drive by and swear I am going to find a time to go in to and never have until last night. My opinion? I am DEFINITELY going back sometime when I can really look at the amazing art they have.
We were greeted at the door by security—I HAD MY ID CHECKED. I can’t remember the last time anyone asked if I was old enough for a glass of wine. After I got past the ID checker and the guest list checker and the Head Guest List Checker and the people counter, I was given a glass of wine (wine glass was mine to keep—its contents were mine to enjoy).
Not only did they have hors d’oeuvres (little bitty things that probably had about a thousand calories a piece and were utterly delicious), wine, and chocolate (chosen to go with the wine)—they had people giving chair massages. YUM! Sitting in the chair letting Melissa the Massage Genius soothe away the day was an excellent vantage point from which to evaluate the shoes of everyone who walking by. No one had purple patent leather pumps (then again, I wasn’t wearing mine last night either). They also had a photo booth (of which I did not partake) and music (which was not optional).
I met a few people, mingled a little, and left in plenty of time to get home before I turned into a pumpkin.
Tonight is football away against Lakota West (which really isn’t that far away). Weather.com is predicting a lovely evening so I shall plan to drive a sled and wear mukluks.
