How Was Your Weekend?

Mine was great! I hung out with friends on Saturday, eating and drinking all the things, and on Sunday my friend who came to stay and I watched movies all day (Interview With A Vampire: not as cheesy as I remembered, somehow? I mean, definitely STILL cheesy, just less), and continued with the eating and the drinking.

    My weekend was pretty great! I went to dinner with a friend on Friday, then watched football and hung out with the family Saturday. Sunday I went to brunch with a bunch of friends and then watched football and also watched Krampus in preparation for Halloween Horror Nights! It was a pretty good movie! Very scary! But also kind of silly!

    My weekend was fine. I got some work done. I read 2.5 travel memoirs. Apparently there’s a whole genre of books about single women who have traveled the world and I am now reading them. I might do a review post at some point to share my thoughts. But right now I just really want to travel to so many places! Although one book I read had a lot of horrifying cockroach stories so now I never want to see Kenya or India.

      Ooh speaking of travel, I think I am going to Thailand in March with a friend of mine. I’ve only ever been to Europe (and America, booo), so I’m really excited!!

        This is exciting! I read this weekend that Phuket has gotten too commercialized and developed (I have no idea, just quoting the book). The authors also said that everyone who’s been to Laos loves it so much, maybe look into a stop there!

        • flanny says:

          Our homebase will be Bangkok and we’ll be staying with another friend who lives there, so I’m hoping he’ll help up avoid the overly touristy places. But, hmmmm, Laos!! I also wonder if it’s reasonable to think about going to Angkor Wat.

    • The snacks were soooo goood. We had pickle popcorn, sesame seed shortbread cookies, fancy cheese puffs, sriracha potato chips, various ice creams, peanut butter pie and…other stuff that I’m forgetting. And that was all in addition to our actual meals of pizza, burgers, fancy sandwiches, and sushi.

      Yes. Please recommend books! I need more.

        I’m into mysteries/thrillers and I’ve been enjoying Thomas Perry novels recently. They are not by any means literature but they’re page turners that keep me up late reading. I really like his Jane Whitefield series, she’s kind of a female Jack Reacher who helps people in imminent danger disappear and start new lives. She’s a total bad ass.

        I now have cards at three libraries because I have a problem and feel the need to get more books all the time.. I’m exhausted today because I stayed up till 4:30 finishing a book.

    Pretty good weekend! Watched Drag Race with my friend, went to class, and went to the baby’s birthday party. He was super cute as usual and loved all of his gifts. We made the mistake of doing cake after gifts and he didn’t understand that he should be excited about cake, all he knew was that we were taking him away from his new toys so he was sobbing through the whole Happy Birthday song. It was hilarious. And then of course he got one bite of cupcake and suddenly everything was great again!

    Also I don’t think I’m ever going to get around to writing about my trip so I’ll just mention a key point: I made a spontaneous decision to get a tattoo in New Orleans after walking past a cool looking tattoo place. Anyway, my little sister has occasionally mentioned that she wants a tattoo and my mom’s response was “If you did, I would never stop crying.” But I am 30 gd years old so I wasn’t going to hide my tattoo from my mother so in the car on the way to the party I was telling her about my trip and I said “Then I walked around this one neighborhood and went to some record stores and got a tattoo and then went to the zoo” and she just sat there silently and basically did not acknowledge that I said anything, sort of like when I stopped going to church 10 years ago. I am the bad seed!

      When we were in high school, my dad told my sister that if she got tattoos she’d be out of the family. It was by far the most (only?) extreme stand he’d ever taken. Therefore she was super nervous after she got one junior year, but decided “F it. Let’s see how this goes.” When he noticed it, he started laughing right away; it was a shamrock at her ankle, and he couldn’t be mad about anything Irish-y.

    Very great weekend. On Saturday I drove up to my sister’s and we went to Mackinac Island (just google it) to celebrate my younger niece’s 10th birthday. It was a beautiful day and we all had a lot of fun, except probably for my 5 year-old nephew who peed himself while we were on the ferry. The most exciting part of the day was when my sister and bro-in-law went slightly off the path in search for “lime kiln ruins” which were on the map but must have been absorbed back into the wilderness at this point. It was a pretty perfect day.

    Then on Sunday I went for a run out in the boonies where my sister lives, and I’m feeling fairly confident about the 5K that’s in less than a month. On the drive back home I successfully avoided bumper-to-bumper traffic when got off the highway to get some coffee and overheard someone talking about the traffic on their phone, so I took a backroad where I could see the highway off beyond the farmfields. It was indeed bumper-to-bumper and I felt very smug when I got back on the highway and traffic was running smooth.

    I was scheduled to work all day and night Saturday, but at the last minute, the employer deemed my involvement unnecessary. So I spent the day writing, and it went well — not great, but I could kind of see great from where I was.

    Unexpectedly free that night, I took myself to a reading of sci-fi and horror authors. They ranged from quite capable to very good! I bought one of the books — “Long-Form Religious Porn” by Laura Lee Bahr (good performer, funny at the mic). I spent Sunday reading that (so: it gets much pervier than the part she read aloud), as well as polishing Saturday’s writing until I was 90% satisfied with it. Then 3 hours struggling to back up my iPhone, which went into some kind of meltdown for the second time in a week. That bodes ill.

    My diet contained 400% of the USRDA of sodium. No runs were went for. Trash taken out finally. Laundry needed doing, but I dropped it off, the best $12 in the world. The shower caddy fell off the wall and I didn’t fix it. Shows watched: 2 Parks & Rec. Drinks drunk: 1 glass wine, lots of tea and coffee. Showers taken: 1. Other authors read: Clive Barker. I don’t fully get his thing but man he has a following so I am trying.

    The weekend was fun! We had nachos and margaritas and played Celestia, which got more and more cutthroat as the evening wore one.

    This morning I slipped on the T and twisted the hell out of my ankle. Why am I allowed to adult?

  7. I went to Riot Fest, which was what I needed. Specifically, I needed Jimmy Eat World to tell me everything, everything will be just fine, everything, everything will be all right.

    Well I’m back at the airport again…same as the last time I commented. So far I haven’t spilled diet coke on anyone’s chair, but there is still time. My weekend was wonderful. Did a lot of lounging around with the beau. We went to a brewery, and a fancy steakhouse, and drove through some small gold rush towns that were practically ghost towns. We also bought a vcr at goodwill and watched his old home movies which was just adorable to see my bf as a 12 year old kid. Then we watched Pretty Woman on vhs, just cause we could. Retro. Oh and we also made slutty brownies. Cookies on the bottom, oreos in the middle, brownies on top. They are so rich, but sooooo delicious.
