How Was Your Weekend?

Mine was very nice–I hung out with my mom and brother on Saturday, and much pizza and leftover Halloween candy was eaten. On Sunday, I finished The Crown on Netflix (I’ll save my reactions for TV Talk) and ate even more candy.

    Sunday I had to work, so let’s not even go there.
    On Saturday I went to a really tough yoga class and then saw “the old man” from my yoga class at the fancy grocery store near the imported cheese and we chatted about how yoga was tough but worth it. So I guess I’m one of those people now. Then I went home and changed into 100% sweats and drank afternoon wine and ate a whole block of fancy cheese while watching a movie. Two glasses of wine into the afternoon, someone knocked on my door and I answered it because maybe it was a package for me I didn’t remember ordering! But it was a Hillary canvasser and I was sort of drunk and wearing sweats and was very nervous my cat would dash out the door so basically I said, “DON’T WORRY, BRO, I’M VOTING FOR HILLARY!” and then slammed the door in his face. It was a good Saturday.

    I was on call which was lame but it wasn’t as bad as I feared it would be. It fucked up my sleep of course, so I spent most of yesterday unconscious, but it could have been worse. The only other thing I did was get a haircut which I have needed to do for months now and today I feel light and free and there is no hair poking into the inside of my ear.

    Saturday I was supposed to write but didn’t do a lot, then went to see friends for dinner. Sunday I was supposed to write but cleaned the apartment instead. I spent 4 hours and threw out four bags of crap, but the place looks barely any different. I guess that is testament to how efficiently I jam in all the garbage I live with? Hurrah, I guess.

    As part of the cleanup, prelim to tossing it, I started up an old laptop that died 2 years ago and Lo & Behold it actually booted — giving me access to 70GB of files I thought were gone forever. Who knows if it will ever boot up again, so I spent 3 hours transferring its contents to a stable computer. That was so exciting for 15 minutes…. then deadly tedious.

    While I did all this, I watched the documentary Raiders! (about kids in the 1980s who made a shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark) and, for the first time since 1998, I watched Titanic. Raiders! is worthwhile and Titanic not only holds up, it’s better than I remembered it. Both are on the Netflix.

    I had a great weekend! I was on vacation (and most of last week too!) and it was one of the best vacations in a long time! It was our 4th anniversary and we went to the beach and went and did a bunch of fun stuff including going back to Halloween Horror Nights for the final night which was incredible!
    The only thing that made it not 100% perfect is that I spent a lot of time pushing down the dread of going back to work today, but it hasn’t been too bad yet, just tiring. I have to focus on de-stressing and I’m not sure how to do that.

    The weather was unbelievably gorgeous this weekend, so I felt lots of guilt about not wanting to enjoy it. But I forced myself to anyways. Saturday I went for a bike ride and I made a stop at my voting location on the way back, so I got my vote in and done! Woo! Sunday I went for a long walk, went to church and cleaned up my room AKA put away all my discarded clothing. Thats about it. My last day at this job is Wednesday, so I am just trying to ride out this week and be as stress free as possible! WOoo!

    My weekend was OK. I went for a hike and upgraded my phone plan so I have data again. Fatiman took the modem when he left, so I’ve been living in the dark ages! Thankfully I found all 7 seasons of Rumpole of the Bailey downloaded on my laptop so I spent my weekend with this dreamboat:

    Oh gosh you guys. I am browsing for a cute christmas sweater for the boyfriends puppy and I stumbled across this on Amazon. This dog HATES this outfit so much. I am laughing so hard right now.

    Guys, I just had THE phone call from my mom where she reminded me to vote and then asked who I was voting for and then told me she was voting for Trump because he was pro-life and Hillary is pro-abortion HEEEEEEEEEEELP.

    • catweazle says:

      AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    • catweazle says:

      Have you tried framing it to her as Hillary is pro-choice and Trump is anti-choice? And then spending five minutes listing all of the other things Trump is anti?

      I learned a couple of months ago that some of my cousins are going to vote for Trump because of taxes and I wanted to die and also never go to a family party on my mom’s side again.

      • flanny says:

        I’m supposed to go to Thanksgiving at my aunt’s where I’m almost positive they are all voting Trump (even though her teenage grandson is transsexual???) and I don’t know how I’m going to survive.

      • hotspur says:

        Taxes! The most important issue in the woooOOOOooooOOORRRRrrllllLLLDDD!!!!

      • martinmegz says:

        I’ve been ignoring my aunt since she and my uncle told me they’re voting for Trump, and she finally tattled on me to my parents. But I told my mom why I’m avoiding them and she was like, Oh, I totally get it! As far as anyone needs to know you just have a lot going on right now.

    • martinmegz says:

      Let your mom know that Trump was pro-choice before he decided to run for President as a Republican: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NglssDgZ-yE

      I feel so lucky that my parents have the same political leanings as I do. My mom and I had a heated 20-minute agreement about the election last night.

    • flanny says:

      Argh, I got myself all amped up during the ride home and called her back and told her that I learned in Catholic school that life is precious and everyone should be treate with dignity and Trump doesn’t and as a woman descended from immigrants who were descriminated against, I can’t stand by and watch him say the things he’s saying BUT MOM’S ALREADY VOTED ABSENTEEEEEEEEEEEE.

    • Kate says:

      Gaaa! Does she know Trump pressured Marla to abort Tiffany?!?!

      • hotspur says:

        The Marla scenario is bonkers. It is startling that a story like Gennifer Flowers still comes up, but none of the Marla history does. I had a coworker who was married temporarily into the NYC money world, and she said basically once Marla refused to abort, the Moneyed Crowd forced Trump to marry her — at least for a few years. That was the deal. This coworker made that social circle sound Victorian in its sensibilities; it simply Would Not Do to have one of their own publicly abandon his child with a showgirl.
