Fun weekend... Olé! - Revised with Photos

**** Thanks to TBF, we got these pictures*****

We had a great time this weekend.

First I got brand new glasses from my sweet OrangeX; a funky second pair that I (we) fell in love with when I had my eyes checked a couple of weeks ago. I bought another pair at first, thinking that they should easily match with the many colours I wear. This pair though, is orange. When I went to get my new contact lenses, I saw them again and OrangeX made me put them on again. Then he said:"I want you to have those. They just look fantastic." And so, an hour later, I has my second pair in 3 weeks! It's a Spanish make: Etnia, Barcelona (Sal's gonna love this)

OrangeX bought himself a new mobile phone because his was so old and the buttons were getting lame. He's now all happy with his new Nokia 6280!

Last evening, we were invited to TBF's annual Cinco de Mayo party where we met a lot of expat friends and had a great evening (although OrangeX had to expose his bare butt again. Is this becoming a ritual on Cinco de Mayo at TBF's???). I hope TBF will photoshop it a bit and add blurr in there...
But(t??) the most embarrassing moment for moi - I'm used to Orange's mooning tick - was that I explicitly asked Orange to make sure the camera was packed and the batteries were loaded. Then, I remembered that I still had to take out the memory stick from my laptop where I had uploaded a few picts from Dale. Believe it or not, I started doing something else and by the time we got there and OrangeX shot the first pict, I thought "SH**T" I forgot the memory stick. So we ended up taking pictures with TBF's camera.

I'll let him blog about the details - well hey, he's got all the picts - but I can assure you: it was a wonderful evening (I stuck to the mexican tea this time), the food and drinks were excellent and plentifull and the atmosphere was great.

And guess what? We (and another couple) were again the last to leave at a human 2:00 am!

If I get a few picts from TBF, I'll post them (including the new funky glasses!)

Orange and the lovely Di


And now for the finale (sorry guys, OrangeX asked not to have his butt published AGAIN!) In the meantime, I found an acceptable solution. I guess this means you all need an invitiation!

oh yes this sounds like so much fun! And the glasses can't wait to see em. As for the phone, you'd burst out laughing and wouldn't be able to stop if you saw what I use. I'd chuck it if it were mine! I can't do anything on it. No caller ID, no voicemail and no call backs. SUCKS! I'm not used to this!!! I'm afraid to even use the thing...

I can't wait to see Orange's booty!

christina said...

LOL! Boy, when you guys have a good time you REALLY have a good time. :-) I'm sure the pictures will be a hoot.

Gretchen said...

It was great to see you Saturday night!

Sal DeTraglia said...

Well, that tells you how out of touch I am. I've never heard of Etnia Barcelona. But then again, I still haven't quite figured out what Wi-Fi is either.

I'm a bit curious as to why Cinco de Mayo is the annual airing-out of Orange-X's glutes? It's a shame you didn't bring a video camera. We'l killed to birds with one stone, and filmed the "Detroit Sauna" flick. You know...since he was *already* naked.

Expat- Are you sure it's a mobile phone?? Hehe! :-)

Rob - Now how on earth did I know you'd be saying something like that? ;-)

Christina- I wonder if TBF will blurr Orange's best, or not.

Gretchen- It was fun chatting with you guys.

Sal- It must be TBF's Margerita's that make him do it. They're almost as leathal as Absinth!

Sal DeTraglia said...

OK...now I've seen your new glasses on TBF's blog. Very cool!

xmichra said...

those glasses look awesome on you! I agree, you had to have them !!

CanadianSwiss said...

Sal/Xmichra - Thanks! I love 'em too!

Sal DeTraglia said...

You know what would *really* be funny? If O-X were wearing that sombrero on the front.

"Look Mom...no hands!" :-O

Orange-X said...

Okay Sal. I'll have to start looking for a suitable sombrero to do the "no hands". Has to be a small one though...Oh wait, I might have the solution. Just wait and see :-)

Expat Traveler said...

Those were great pics... And yeah the last one is still funny. Blogger is acting up, grrr...

Ginnie said...

You guys are just way too funny! And I LOVE the glasses. Totally perfect for you. I think you could get away with just about anything, so you're lucky :)

christina said...

Hilarious! And those glasses really suit you.

CanadianSwiss said...

Thanks for the compliments, ladies!

Mr. Fabulous said...

So when people say "asshat" is that what they mean?

Looks like y'all had a great time!

CanadianSwiss said...

Mr. Fab - LOL! I guess so.

Haddock said...

You guys certainly know how to have a good time. Mooning is always a laugh. I haven't done so in many a year! :)

CanadianSwiss said...

Well, it looks like you need an invitation to TBF's Cinco de Mayo party, doesn't it? ;-)

Expat Traveler said...

Yeah - I read tthe new TBF post on the dinner... And P laughed so hard at Orange-X's last photo!
