because i make my own fun.
friday night was the world netflix premiere of...
now while this might *seem* like a children's show and not worthy of your time or interest, well, you're probably right.. haha. however, if you're read my summerfest post, you know i enjoy a nice gentle pre-teen show, perfect for laid-back summer evenings. mermaids + gorgeous scenery + australian accents = ok by me. this new show is a "sequel" to the original H20, and if i'd have been remiss if i missed out.
in typical christine fashion, i made a celebration out of the mundane. and when i say celebration i mean "food." there might have also been some dressing for the occasion and nail-painting. take a look at my polyvore set for the deets, and then photos of the big event!
i called up outback steakhouse as i left work on friday for some curbside takeaway. because mermaids eat surf and turf, duh. and the restaurant is australian (themed - they're not fooling anyone over here, right?) i thought about hitting up a sonic for some amazing ocean water (which is on my summerfest 2013 to-do list), but it's just too far from outback. so i got the fixings at lunchtime to make my own. i thought about getting something with sea-salt caramel in it for desert, but a highly respected authority on mermaids (answers.com) said mermaids would eat anything with *mer*engue in it. it's a good thing i love lemon merengue. set up on some of my favorite ocean-y plates, and i was set!

my night was fabulous and i wasn't jealous of anyone out there who might have been partaking of more conventional entertainment. i mean honestly you see why, right? good food, several episodes of a delightfully light and fluffy show, and some pampering a la bath and nails. and i didn't even have to put on a bra. here's to more nights like this!
