The Long Boring Weekend.

Monday, November 28, 2005

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!!

The long weekend was nice, but I just wish my plans would have worked out!

It was one of those weekends were things just didn't work out. Though I'm glad I'm not D, driving home on ice last night, or any people between here and Colorado. Snow is fun and all, but three feet of it is just absurd. There will be some kick ass snow forts in a couple days though!

I do believe, at least for the time being, Thanksgiving is tops on my list for annoying holidays. Seeing the family is nice, but at some point in the last couple months I've developed a deep hatred of the sounds of eating. It never bothered me before, but now, hearing someone chew: Drives. Me. Nuts. Looney I tell ya. I think it might be that The Voice (The SNL Pat-ish, irritating woman who works behind me) has a habit of eating chips with her mouth open. Every. Day. The points when the conversation lulled and people just ate? LOONEY! At least the food was good.

Anyway, Thanksgiving was ok. Same old thing every year. Have dinner at the Aunt and uncle's place with the parental units and grandma, watch some football and play some Uno. I won two games of about 12. The first win was a marathon game, 5 of the 6 people called uno a total of 13 times and it took about 45-50 minutes. The second win was the last game we played.

Got a hold of The Best Friend, but he couldn't partake in our usual Thanksgiving ritual of hitting the bars on State Street in Madison because he had is daughter. We were supposed to hang out Friday, but he never called and I still have yet to hear from him. It doesn't help that his cell phone is temporarily disconnected.

Instead on Friday, I ended up on the phone with The Cute Paramedic (History here, here, here) for a little over an hour. She had no real explanation as to why she basically disappeared other than: "I do that sometimes." She had gotten back together with her ex, but really doesn't like him. Right now she's admittedly only keeping him around because he'll give her rides since she pulled a stupid and got a DUI. Doesn't explain why she got back together with he before that though. She called Saturday night for a bit as well and says she will tonight. I hadn't heard from her in months and now it'll be 3 times in four days. Definitely nice to have her come back around, another friend to hang out with, but I'm definitely not putting much faith in her sticking around after the first disappearance.

Saturday was the possible date night with the new girl. I'll call her Gun Show Girl, or Guns for short, because of her costume on the Halloween Bus Party. It was a cowboy hat, boots jeans, caps guns and a fake bullet belt, and then a t-shirt that said "Get your tickets to the Gun Show" and had two arrows pointing to her, well, guns. Here's her and I (Not the best). No one actually got a picutre of the shirt unfortunately. I headed back up to the Cities but found out via text message that she was roped into staying for her nephews' birthday parties and wouldn't make it back till Sunday. Doh! We now have tentative plans to hang out sometime this week.

Sunday was football, DVRed Lost, Need for Speed Underground 2 and laundry. Well, I thought about doing laundry anyway.

Oh well, at least it was a nice relaxing weekend! It certainly was nice to have four days away from being at work. I know I really don't feel like working today! On this week will be a good one, I can feel it ;O)

Later all!

Upcoming posts: Slacker's Rules for Women, Wednesday Wist, Part one of Chief Slacker's Dating Odyssey, and the new Slacker's Spotlight.

You crack me up in that you are annoyed by the sounds of eating. I never really paid attention, but perhaps now I will. hehe

Wow, you heard from CP? Interesting. I'm glad that you aren't putting much into that one since she is very much a flake.

Oh, and I loved the recent episode of "Lost." SOOO good! :-)

Kettle crisps. That's the only thing I've noticed I am irritated to hear eaten: kettle crisps.

Paramedic girl provides lame excuses with no real coherency or logic. Yay. I can't stand game-players.

Ok, first off, CP is not good enough for you. DUI, lame excuses, and the whole "I'm back with my ex but I don't really like him" is such baloney. She's just trying to play both sides. Lose her.

Also, the most recent episode of "Lost" rocked.

Thank you.
