Sorry guys, mostly happenstance8. I haven't been able to update in a bit. First I was sick, then I was sick again, and also I was working, and working more, then I had stuff to do, and I was out of town, and my computer does that random crashing thing. Then, it got a virus, a really horrible virus, because I couldn't wait for Glee to be on Hulu. I just had to watch it right then and expose my computer to endless spyware and malware. I still haven't fixed it. I'm going to have to back up any files that I can, and then do a total system restore. It sucks. Big time. Work has been pretty good, I'm getting more focused, and faster, and I'm getting there on time, except for that day I overslept. My shift is changing to 8-5, Sunday-Thursday. I am excited. Working 11-8 may seem like it would be a good shift, but it's not. It is the time when most businesses are open, so that when I get off work, lots of places are closed. Now I can exercise after work instead of waking up early. Hooray. Well, I must get ready to depart. I am taking a weekend trip to Little Rock with Ross. We are house sitting for his sister. By this, I mean that we are going to stay there for free. I can't wait to shop. I will try to control myself, for Ross's sake. Also, my nephew might be born this weekend. My brother and his wife live in Arkadelphia, so if that happens, maybe I could go see them. Yay! I'll have to make a stop at Baby Gap. Anyway, time for fun and relaxation. Suck it, responsibility.
Friday night: Dinner at Louie's with Kara and Chad. It was fun. Kara threw a lime at Chad's face. He got in her pincers. Then, I went and saw Kick-Ass with Ross. Awesome. So over the top. My kind of movie. Blood, explosions, and a 12 year old girl said "cunts." Then Ross and I watched Stargate Universe, which I love. Ross was a gentleman and did not take advantage of the fact that I drank some magic punch during the movie. Good for him, I don't make it easy for him to behave.
Saturday: Kara and I went to the Farmer's Market for some flowers, Bliss for a cupcake, and then Hammontree's for some excellent excellent food. Then we went shopping at Pinnacle Hills. I got shoes, a dress, and some t-shirts. Here are the shoes I got.
After that, Kara, Courtney, and I had dinner at Tim's pizza with Kara's family. It was pretty good. And Kara's family is entertaining. Always. Haha. Pincers. Then, Courtney, Kara, Jonathan, Joe, and I went to Smoke and Barrel. It was okay. Really loud. The band wasn't that great. So we left. We went to You Know? Uno! But the wait time to sing some karaoke was an hour. I was sad. So we left and just came back to the apartment. Then we drank some and smoked cigarettes and took pictures of each other before starting a sword fight with Nerf swords that turned into an epic wrestling match among friends. Here is a picture of the aftermath:
It was superfun. I am not feeling like typing any more right now.
Well, the flu has left my body. It was quick, and I'm glad. I was gonna go back to work yesterday, but my little car, Sally, was broken. I was so sad. I went to Ross's after he got off work and we made an excellent dinner of pasta and salad. It was fun.
Today, Kara and I went shopping. I bought some Yellow Box flip flops. I needed flip flops. They are cute. They look pretty much like this only more sparkly:
I also bought some t-shirts and a tank top from Charlotte Russe. They are cute also.
Before that, I walked to the brocery store (not a typo) and then walked back to my apartment. And then back to the brocery store. Because I forgot my wallet the first time. Fail.
After the shopping (which was after the brocery store), Kara and I had sushi at WOW Sushi and then we had some fro yo at Orange Mango, the new fro yo place on Dickson. Both were delicious. Especially that fro yo. I enjoy some frozen treats, yes I do. I had peach flavor with blueberries, mandarin oranges, pineapples, and honey granola. Yum yum yum.
Oh, I forgot to say that the car was completely fine. The battery needed to be charged. I'm an idiot. At least my car is fine.
In my dream, I was living in my mother's house (my childhood home). She did not live there. The people that lived there were myself, Kara, Jonathan, and some unnamed male wearing a weird costume or uniform (I'm not 100% sure that he was human, could be an alien, I can't recall). There is only one specific scene in the dream that stands out in my mind. Kara was sitting in the floor of the living room, arranging small yellow post-it notes on the rug, and crying. She looked at me and said "I JUST WANT THESE TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! IS IT SO MUCH TO ASK FOR THEM TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE?" She cried some more. Then she said (referring to Jonathan) "I TRY TO KEEP THEM STRAIGHT, BUT FREAKIN HARVEY OVER THERE DOESN'T EVEN GIVE A CRAP!" Then she cried some more and went back to arranging the post-its. That's all.
I call it the "freakin Harvey" dream because it was very strange to me that Dream Kara would call Jonathan that. We have never used that as a nickname for him. Until after the dream. We actually do call him "freakin Harvey" sometimes now.
Yeah, that's it. Hopefully it entertained you, at least a little bit.
