Very good weekend. Thanks, Universe.

Things kicked off Saturday. We’d been invited out for a get together at Sheila and Pablo’s lake-trailer out in Burnet. The lake was a conglomeration of Inks and Buchanan and the Colorado (I think). Don’t ask me for any details on where we actually were. I have no idea and I DROVE. But the landscape was beautiful and the company, amazing.

The Boys, the Girlie and I all piled into the car with all our stuff (clothes, swimmies, towels, blankies, games, food, etc., etc.). Poor lil car damn near groaned under the weight of all of it. It certainly sat lower on its tires.

We arrived – slightly breathless from the somewhat confusing directions – and piled out of the car into the waiting arms of everyone. Drinks were handed ’round (much yumminess on the pina colodas, rum runners and fuzzy navels!).

We ate ourselves silly, drank a lot of cocktails, swam, ate some more, talked into the wee hours of the night, listened to great music (some of us even sang along). Good times. I wish we could’ve stayed the entire weekend but, we’d already committed ourselves to another engagement at our house, back in town.

We left early Sunday afternoon in order to make it back to the house for the Tal game. Another fantastic day, even though I wound up having to take some pain killers and nasuea meds. I must’ve looked a bit on the goofy side, lolling to the side on the couch and trying to remember what my char’s thought processes might be like.
J, C….do ya’ll remember? *laugh*

Sunday night we went to Elysium for the 80’s night thing. My GAWD it was packed. It made me realize what it is about humans that I truly despise: lots of them. One guy was doing his thing, arms raised over his head and splooged his sweaty, hairy guy pits on my shirt. EW, ew, ew! That was about when I decided it was time for me to go home. Erica and Robert came with us so we gots to chat more (Erica looked very cute in my shirt and shorts, eyes rolled back in her head).

Monday was a brief (very brief, wah!)Star Wars game with C running. Tammers was there (yay!) and I think everyone had a good time. *I* did, even though I was once again, half asleep on the couch.

Speaking of being sleepy…damn, I’m about to fall out right here at my desk. I wonder if anyone would notice if I skipped out of work early today?

back to your regularly scheduled update

Not much more really. Overcommitted ourselves, had a blast doing it, more of the same this week. We’re leaving Thursday night or Friday morning for A-kon (squee, joy!). I’ve taken Friday and the following Monday off; which effectively means that I’m only getting these three days for work this week. I’ve *GOT* to stay here. Unless I want to receive my check and die laughing at its miniscuality.

Is “miniscuality” a word?

Nevermind…I go now otherwise I’ll be found nose down in the keyboard. Walkies gooooooooood for sleepiness.

J and I went to see the final episode of Star Wars last night. I think my comment as I left the theatre last night sums it up:”WOW, nice one Lucas. I forgive you for the other two”. True, Portman and what-his-nut (Skywalker’s actor) have about as much chemistry as play-dough. And yeah, it dragged in places. But, I’d say overall it was very good. Best part of all? JarJar never *once* speaks.
Ok, that’s not the best part. But it is all I can say without filling my journal full of spoilers. Wouldn’t want to ruin the experience for the next person, donchya know.

And just what is it about Star Wars that turns most people into geeks? Witness this conversation I just had with J:

J: “I sense the FORCE is strong with you…”
Me: Wanna be my evil apprentice?
Me: and don’t you know that C would immediately say “yes” to that? *laugh*
J: yeah, a LOT
Me: as would you, apparently
J: “Yess, my MASTER…”
Me: heh – that’s mistress to you, sunny-jim
J: “Yesss my Mistress..!”

I’m in a pretty good in spite of the late hour getting out of the movie (it let out around 230 this morning). Tired as all get out though. I think there might be a nap in my future (after work) as I’ve got a bellydancing class to teach tonight.

There will be more updates later, my minions.

I am not stupid. I am not ugly. I am not fat. I am not stupid. I am not…

Long day.
Long fucking day.
It started on Saturday, really.

I don’t know why I get so weird, sometimes. Its like I’m doing fine, and then WHAM! the universe just slam-dunks my head into the nearest privy. bet it looks funny. I’m sure that it would make a great cinematic moment. With dialogue it would probably be some nattily dressed guy asking, “You didn’t really need that ego, did you?”

*sigh* Ever have one of those days where you weren’t sure if you needed to be angry or sad?

Work has been an ongoing trial. Not that I don’t enjoy it, I do. But its been a huge learning curve on top of the emotional crap that’s been ongoing.
Why must I take everything so much to heart? Why do other’s actions even *fucking* matter to me so much? Is there a reason that my heart just wrings itself out like a used cleaning rag every time something comes along to upset the status quo? Because the status quo is gonna get upset quite alot. Its all part and parcel of the whole living gig. Enormous, cosmic heart powers….itty bitty living space (so to speak).
Further, I don’t know why I feel the need to compare myself to other people. “He’s so much nicer than me” “She’s got a much better figure” “I wish I was as smart as them”

It gets old. Even in my own head it gets old.

silliness abounds…

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pr0n surfed, weak and weary
Over many a strange and spurious pr0nsite of ‘hot XXX galore’
While I clicked my fav’rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning
And my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour.
“’tis not possible!”, I muttered “give me back my free hardcore!”
Quoth the server,

*cue guitar riff*
