Internet, I would like to tell you about the perfectly lovely weekend I had, um, last weekend. Why am I talking about my weekend on Thursday, you might ask? Well. I’ll tell you.
signed up for an online writing class a while ago, and it started last
week, and the main objective of this class is to get you to write every
day. There are assignments JUST LIKE IN SCHOOL, so basically all of my Hermione
Granger qualities have come out in full force, which means not only do I want
to write the assignments but I want to write MORE than the assignments because writing more
means I WIN AT WRITING. Or something. It’s a contest, right? No? Oh.
so I don’t know if you noticed but I’m trying to post something to my
blog every day. By the time of this posting, that makes four days in a
row! Which is like more days in a row than I’ve posted in a million
years probably, so I guess this class is working. Once I finish my daily
assignment for my writing class, then I work on a post for this blog or a book review for
CBR4 (HAHAHA JUST KIDDING I’M SO BEHIND), which means I’m usually ahead of the game. I
edit (can you even believe this shit has been revised, because it has) one
entry a night and schedule it to post the next morning, then I start a
new entry. It’s like a system! I love systems!
anyway, this past weekend was great! Almost as great as that segue! It
couldn’t have worked out any better if I’d planned it and believe you
me, I’ve tried to plan that kind of relaxation before and it doesn’t
work at all! Just FYI.
went out to breakfast on Saturday and, as we were sitting at our table,
drinking some coffee and staring at people out the window, Joe saw some
of our friends standing outside. They were about to have to wait a
million hours for a table but Joe and I said NO. You will NOT do that!
You will sit with us! And thus it happened, as was foretold in the
ancient prophecy of breakfasts or whatever.
has been working at the comic book store on Saturdays, which usually
means I have Saturday afternoons all to myself for thrifting or watching
Buffy or whatever the hell it is I do with my time that makes it fly by until I
realize I haven’t showered yet and it’s almost 5 which is when Joe gets
home and I HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING PRODUCTIVE AT ALL. Ahem. But this past
Saturday, I went hiking! I already told you about that, though! This
post has so many exclamation points! I love it!
and I had talked about going to the movies Saturday night because,
well, that’s what we do, but instead I talked him into renting movies
(Moonrise Kingdom!) and ALSO renting Just Dance 4 JUST so I could do the
dance to Call Me Maybe. So we drank and watched movies and played Wii
and it was the PERFECT SATURDAY NIGHT for people who don’t like to NOT
wear pajamas at all times and isn’t that all people? Yes, probably.
don’t even know how we ended up killing most of Sunday because the only
thing I remember doing is going to see Sleepwalk With Me. Have you seen
it? It’s so good. I’ve listened to Mike Birbiglia’s comedy special of
the same name AND read the book (also same name GO FIGURE) and I still enjoyed the
movie. I could listen to Mike Birbiglia talk about...I don’t know,
clipping his toenails, and I would still be enthralled. It’s something
about his voice. I don’t even know. Wow, good story.
think I’ll use this last paragraph of this completely thought out and
totally planned post for a PSA and that is! do not, under any
circumstances consume the following right before you go to bed: chili,
beer, Reese Cup cupcake, Dexter, The Walking Dead. You’ll thank me
later, after you don’t do that and you have an uninterrupted-by-zombie-killer-nightmare night of sleep.
