All Hallows Eve

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. The kid is going as Top Gun. Complete with helmet, jumpsuit and light up Skechers. When he is wearing the helmet or the jumpsuit, you can only address him as Top Gun.

I would also like to wish a Happy Belated Birthday to my dear friend, The Whore. I now have to put OLD in front of Whore when addressing her. May she celebrate with a glass of wine with dinner and six more for breakfast. She has been busting her ass in nursing school and is doing awesome - straight A's bitches!!! I am so proud of her even though school is taking up all of our together time, and by together time I mean drinking time. Happy Birthday you OLD WHORE!!! May you have the best first annual 29th birthday EVER!!!

If you haven't noticed, I haven't posted anything in a while. Work is crazy busy and it is interfering with my social life/reading time. So while I am here, I will let you know a few of my obsessions while not at work:

1. The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer - I know these books are supposed to be for teens but they are so fucking good!!! I don't care if I sound like a complete dork. I am reading Eclipse now so no one tell me what happens. I will discuss all of this once I have finished Breaking Dawn, which at the rate I am going will be next week.

2. Mad Men - I LOVE this show! If I were living in that time I have decided that I would have been the most like Joan. And Pete is smarmy but I like him, but not as much as Don Draper. He is so complex and mysterious that I wouldn't even have cared if he was someone else. But for some strange reason I love Roger Sterling, he is so freaking hot even though he has white hair.

3. Augusten Burroughs - He is so smart and funny and I adore his books. I have read Running With Scissors and Dry, and am on Possible Side Effects now. He has gone through so much yet is not bitter about any of it and I commend him for that.

4. 30 Rock and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - 30 Rock returns this week, HORRAY!!! Oh how I missed you Liz Lemon. BTW, I am going as Tina Fey for the Halloween Party this weekend. I already wear the dark rimmed glasses, jeans and Converses anyway. Way too easy! Sunny has to be my favorite comedy. It's so fresh and politically incorrect and slightly retarded, but it's also endearing. Wildcard bitches!!!

So, I have shared mine...what are you obsessing over lately???

I'm such a slacker...

Okay, no pics of the beer bottle costume because my camera died. I will see if I can get one from one of the people there. I will tell you that my friend and I each took out singles and he danced in the costume. I believe the dances that were done were: the sprinkler, running man, disco, cabbage patch and an attempt at the worm. Notice I only said attempt. After a few beers the worm is not the greatest idea.

I did however go camping last weekend for a charity off road day in the Jeep. Crawl for the Cure was awesome and our group came in second for total funds raised. A big thank you goes out to all of you that support any cause you see worthy! Hopefully one day there won't be any diseases or cancer.

Sorry my posts have been sparse lately, I am such a slacker. It also didn't help that we have had crazy deadlines here at work, which is really the reason why I have not posted anything in a while.

I almost forgot, I possibly made a love connection at the party I threw. I invited my newly single BFF and my best guy friend and they totally hit it off. Since then they have gone out on a couple of dates!!! YAY ME!

Since both of them are basically made for each other, I knew that they would try to pull some prank the day after their first date. She tried telling me that instead of going to a restaurant for dinner, he took her to Quizno's. I would have believed it if they both weren't emailing me all day with the exact same questions two minutes apart. Amateurs.

I literally got this from her at 2:13, "should I give him a chance to redeem himself? He seems like a really great guy!" and then this from him at 2:17, "do you think that there is any way I can redeem myself? You know I am a great guy and normally would not have done anything like that, money's just tight right now." I didn't let them know that I knew what was going on, I played into it just to see what other cheesy lines I could pull from them.

So after 7 that night she calls me with him on 3-way and says she has a confession. So I said "Oh, you mean the one about him not really taking you to Quizno's? Yeah, I know. Next time both of you shouldn't email me with the exact same lines." They were pissed that I knew but half expected it. I mean, who do they think they are kidding?

Nice try bitches!!!

The weekend is finally here!!! I hope everyone has a good weekend and I will update you about mine on Monday. I only know tonight I am watching chick flix and tomorrow night there's a party at my place. One of my friends is wearing a beer bottle costume for it and it is NOT a halloween party.

To Each His Own

Last night I was watching the big ole TV waiting for my brain to get sleepy. It was around 10 that I flipped over to TLC and that family with the 17 or 18 kids was on. The reason they have all of these kids is because they are super religious and that they believe each child is a blessing from God. I agree that children are no doubt a blessing, but so is the pill.

Turns out that the oldest one is getting married to a girl he met a couple of years ago at a conference for home schooled kids. They have been going out for I think two years now give or take. Seems like they are in love but...they have not even KISSED!!! How can you be with someone for over two years and not kiss that person??? Both of their parents believe that all of their children's first kisses should be at the altar on their wedding day. Who does that?

All this poor couple do is hold hands and hug if they are allowed to. They are 20 years old and have to have a chaperon on their dates, even if the two of them just to run to the store for some milk. The chaperon can be one of the younger siblings or a parent. I don't know about you, but when I was in high school I sure as hell didn't want a chaperon of any type, even if it was to really run to the store real quick. The whole thing is just crazy to me. How are they supposed to live in the real world? What will happen after college one of them wants to be a biochemical engineer? Or a personal trainer? Do they know that men (and women) walk around naked in the locker rooms? I could never be like them, but what they do makes them happy. I guess to each his own then.
