But I have a little bit of an excuse… my laptop seems to have died? It did this weird thing where the screen turned blue & had some error message & told me to promptly shut down the computer, which I did, and then when I turned it back on it was just loading realllyyy slow & then the screen turned grey & it wouldn’t respond to me pushing the button trying to turn it off! So what did I do? I unplugged the battery and let it die the old fashioned way (and now I’m too afraid to try to turn it on in fear that it may have officially $hit the bed.)
Alas excuses, excuses but here we are again.
So I was doing fairly well last week posting my food….the last day I blogged was Thursday so I’ll pick it up from there I suppose.
Thursday night I ended up sleeping at my lady K8Caccis house… where we sipped Merlot (the 2 buck chuck variety) & watched murder mysteries… a perfect night in our eyes.
Friday was pretty much amazing… Katy brought me breakfast which was a fruit cup from whole foods & their Dark Chocolate Granola (Back to Nature Chocolate Delight) & both she and BMosh brought me iced coffees from Dunks… *winning!!*
I worked until noon & then I had an interview at Bay State College in Boston. I’m currently in the process of trying to choose between PTA at Bay State & DPT at Simmons… decisions, decisions….
After my interview I was feeling, to say the least, stressed. & of course I ended up taking it out on MK… poor kid, don’t know how he deals sometimes (I’m really so lucky he puts up with my irrational BS) . . .to relieve some stress I joined Amy for a walk. We ended up walking for an hour which I realllllyy needed so I felt much better after that. Then I went out to dinner with my Mom, Dad, Robby & Brad. I got a Mediterranean salad with grilled shrimp (which my parents called me a ‘lightweight’ for ordering..welcome to my life) & made up for it with 2 large beers. After dinner I went to Amy’s and we polished off a couple bottles of Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio (my fave) & watched TV, looked at old pictures, and bitched about life. It was SO needed.
Saturday morning I woke up and felt like death. I guess I was hungover (oops). So I had a Snapple, some home-made homefries, and an egg sandwich with cheddar on whole wheat bread… then I went home and slummed on the couch for a little bit. Around 2 my lifesaver Katie Davis came over and picked me up and we went to Starbucks. She treated me to a Venti Passion Iced Tea Lemonade and a bacon and gouda breakfast sandwich. Followed by chocolate covered gram-crackers. Basically, she’s a saint.
We spent the rest of the afternoon leaving obnoxious voicemails on our friends’ phones, doing arts and crafts, and stalking NFL players. HAHAH.
We wrote a poem that we put on a giant birthday card for MK.:
Your birthday weekend is finally here
We know you didn’t like being surprised last year
But it was fun for us, so again here we are
Amherst to Shrewsbury, you’ve already come far
We promise this birthday will be like no other
The surprises keep coming one after another
You’re desperate to know your final destination
Well, we’re going on a mini vacation
We’re getting close to Boston as you can see
But that’s not our last stop, unfortunately
That is where we’ll be boarding a plane
And then when we land, we’ll hop on a train
We think you’ll like it there, they have good pizza
Too bad nothing rhymes with pizza…
It’s the land of the Bulls and Kanye West
And a friend of yours, he’s one of the best
When you put it together it won’t make you frown…
IF YOU DON’T KNOW BY NOW, I’M TALKIN BOUT CHI TOWN
We wrote that on the front of a giant poster-board and then filled the inside with pics of MK and Craig and various sights in Chicago. Mike is gonna LOSE it. And I cannot wait.
We were feelin’ young and in the mood to party and the prospects were high. GLO for Shannon/Rebbeca’s Bday, Boston for Emily’s and to see Tim, maybe visit Amy, maybe Boston with Kasey and Katie…. we were excited! Come 7, everything pretty much fell through. What ended up happening is we went to Amherst to go out with MK and Tom Hatch. It was a fun night, we just went to McMurphy’s. Mike and I got into an argument when we got home cause I had been ticked off at him all weekend and then with alcohol involved all the truth came out. Dumb, whatever.
In the morning we got coffee and then went to Bub’s BBQ. I got a Bison Burger & resisted fries, even hungover! Woo go me!
Then we went roller-blading at the Hampshire Mall hahaha, it was actually really fun. We all left around 4 and I had dinner (oops, fried chicken & pasta salad, then ice cream) with my Dad and we talked a lot about his childhood. Overall, very solid weekend.
