Man Down!

Monday, November 07, 2005

Hey all, hope you had a good weekend. Mine was ok.

Friday, my original plans with Hot Friend got nixed so I ended up chilling out with Big Mike. We decided staying home and playing computer and video games on a Friday night was just sick and wrong, so we walked a whole block to the Fabulous Fern's, a local drinking establishment. Had couple whiskeys and Long Islands, got beat in a couple rounds of darts and then called it a night and headed back to Slacker HQ. Sadly enough I ended up playing Xbox some more. That damn Red Dead Revolver is addicting.

Saturday I got up and had to come into work since I had taken Friday off to deal with some other things. I get to work to find yet another reason to hate Idiot Boss. The group I'm basically dedicated to sent in a last minute request to have something by the crack of dawn Monday. Even though IB knew I was going to be coming in on Saturday, he assigned it to another person who hasn't worked on that project at all. The other guy did a decent job and apparently got it done, but there were a number of errors the guy couldn't have known about since he's never worked on the thing before. So I redid it and sent everything out. Unfortunately it makes our whole department look incompetent and disorganized. I still have to write his review today... heh.

After work I headed to La Crosse, WI to get my drink on with a buddy that used to live up in The Cities. Since he's moving to Florida (Ft. Meyers I believe) to work with his dad selling real estate, we needed to hook up before he left. I got there and we chilled for a little while, then went out and hit a couple bars. The second bars was, well, a little fuzzy in my memory. heh. I remember getting food at Jimmy John's though.

Sunday I got up and headed home. On the way home OCD/Anxiety called, up to her usual annoying shit. Now I've tried to be nice with her, tried to help her work through her issues, but the patience ran out. I'm all for being a nice guy, and for being understanding and trying to help a friend. But if they're not going to try and help themself, my patience hits a wall real quick. That was the last I'll be talking to her.

Called Hot Friend since we had talked about getting together Sunday but she was AWOL. So I did what any guy would do on a Sunday, watch football. There were a bunch of pretty good games on. How about the end of that KC-Oakland game? That's what good football is all about right there. Played some more Red Dead Revolver, watched the "Live Debate" episode of the West Wing and then hit the hay. After having an absolutely wonderful weekend the week before this weekend was kinda off. Oh well, guess it just had to average things out eh?

Anyway, I'm just kinda stuck in a down mood. It's not really any one thing bringing me down, but probably a bunch of them. Having an off weekend, giving up on OCD/A (definitely for the best, but it still sucks to cut ties with someone who used to be a good friend), found out I did something that apparently bothered a friend, completely sick of working for my boss, and probably a good bit of just being tired. Eh, I'm sure it will pass. Maybe I just need a nap.

Later peeps.

Nap? Nap?! You don't need a nap. You'll get enough sleep when you're dead.

So sorry you're down. I hate feeling that way. Hope tomorrow's better!

Don't ya hate those days when it feels like several things are attacking you at once??
I'd take a nap too :)

Ugh. I feel your pain. If you need another kick ass bj let me know ;)

Naps are KING.

Booze + naps + sex = feel better.

Plus thumbs up on giving boots to the girl. No need to stick around on that.

Naps are good. I agree. I'm all about the napping action.

For the record, I found out that French napping involves sex. So does French snuggling. So sayeth the Alex.

If it makes you feel any better, when you used IB, I thought you meant Irritable Bowels. Then I went "Ohhhh! Idiot Boss!...that would make more sense."
Sorry about IB, though. I just got the new Special Edition DVD of Office Space, today. It always feels good to know that someone else, even if its someone fictional, feels the pain.

I know how you feel about giving up ties to people who used to be good friends. It's difficult, but often for the best. Hang in there.

I know it's tough to finally sever the ties with someone you dated and managed to stay friends with for a while, even when you know it's probably just the right thing to do. I'm sorry about the downer mood. I wish I could lift your spirits!

You need a pick-me-up.

Let's hop in a car and take a road trip to Vegas.
