What I plan on talking about later. HEH

Ok, so I have some updating to do but I don't have time to do it right now so I'm gonna write down a few things that I'm thinking about and I'll come back at some point and update later. I don't know if it'll be tonight or not though but we shall see.

1. We got a new roof. YAY!!!!

2. My front right tire died on me on my way home Thursday. BOO!!!!

3. Work sucks. BLECH!!!!

4. Seems to me I had a 4th but now I can't think of it. Hmm, it must've been boring even to me.

Ok, catch ya'll on the flip side.

RIP George Carlin

We saw him last year at the local theatre when he was still working on his latest stand up routine. He even brought a piece of paper on stage with him to help remind him from time to time of points he'd want to make. He let us know that he'd be doing it since it was still so early in the stage of the tour. I think he looked at it twice, maybe. He was just that good.

Media quote of the day: His famous 7 filthy words:

shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits.

OK, so let's see. The following paragraph is what I wrote last Friday intending to update then and I never did finish the post hence never publishing it:

I'm so pissed at my female parts right now. It's been two weeks since my damn period ended and it's already started again. TWO WEEKS PEOPLE! TWO WEEKS! Now the good thing it's not heavy at least. But still. TWO WEEKS!!

Yeah, I was a little pissed, could you tell? I'm over it now though. Not the period, that's still going on, just the being pissed part. Heh

So my weekend went ok. Saturday was my mom's birthday and of course Sunday was father's day. Since HD had to work this weekend we weren't able to go see mom or my stepdad so we took 'em out for dinner earlier for both of those things. Gave my mom a card that brought tears to her eyes. That's always a good thing. But I also gave one that made her giggle. I can't help it, I pretty much always give two cards, one funny and one sentimental.

Friday Directv came and hooked up our new HD box. The only problem is the new dish isn't on the roof. It's in the yard way at the back of the yard by the corner of the garage. And right now the cables are laying on the ground because HD hasn't put them underground yet. It was a pain in the ass to have to mow around them. I had to keep lifting them up and over the mower each swipe, blech! But hey, a bunch of new HD channels, gotta love that.

I'm actually pretty excited, this weekend is HD's weekend off and so far so good with the no overtime. For the past few weeks he's been working major overtime and hasn't had even two days off in row for a long time. Not until yesterday and today. Oh wait, he does have overtime this Sunday, oh well, at least it's Sunday and not Friday or Saturday. So far we have no plans but I'm sure we can think of something.

So yeah, life is still pretty much boring with the not doing much of anything but working and mowing of the lawn. All right gotta go, laters.

Oh yeah, Local H has a new album out. I haven't even heard the whole thing myself yet but so far what I've heard I like. Go click on the link over there on the side and check it out.

Coworker's Bachelorette Party

A couple Saturdays ago I went to a bachelorette party; it was an all day event and I had a great time. I almost didn't go because I had the makings of another migraine. I was sitting on my couch with my eyes closed feeling the pain, weighing it, deciding on how bad it really was. There was pain in the back of my neck and the base of my skull and there was a tightening pain across my forehead from temple to temple but that was really it. So I decided "fuck it, I'm going" and I went.

It was for one of the girls I work with who sits on the other side of my cubicle wall who's in the payroll/accounts payable department. There were a few other coworkers invited and we along with a few of her outside friends were meeting up at one of those friend's houses at 1pm to catch the train at 1:50. We were going to train/bar hop for the whole day.

By the time I got to B's house they had already started but luckily she only lives like 10 blocks from the station (if that) and since my truck fits 7 and that's exactly how many of us there were I piled all of us in and drove us there. They were trying to figure out how many vehicles they should take and who would ride with who and I said nope, there's 7 total I'm taking everyone in mine. I didn't want to take any chances. I think everyone was still fine at that point but still.

At the station we met up with one more of her friends and headed to the first stop, well actually the last stop. We decided to go backwards and go to the last stop and work our way back home. That way as we got more tipsy (that's putting it nicely for some of them) we'd be closer to home rather than further away.

On our way down we got a little loud and these two cops who were sitting in the booth behind us told us to hush. That got a few of us talking to them and next thing you know we're asking for our bachelorette to have her photo taken with the "hot" cop. But she was a little embarrassed and didn't want to so she didn't. But one of the girls wasn't and asked to see his handcuffs and soon enough had them on her wrists behind her back. We got a few photos of that, with him in the picture of course. Sorry, none of them know about this site so I didn't get permission to use any of the photos so I'm not putting any up. But you can certainly imagine how funny it would look. Luckily these two cops weren't working the train but on their way to work security for some festival. I say this because many of the girls brought their drinks in to go coffee cups and you're not supposed to bring alcohol on the train and many of them were clearly tipsy already.

At the second stop we met up with one more girl and then we were complete. Bosslady was supposed to meet us but never showed up. We found out later that she just got so damn busy at her house she just never was able to make it.

We had a great time drinking and talking and flirting as the day wore into the evening. Many, many, many pictures were taken. One girl took over a hundred. I took two disposable camera's that could take 27 each. Apparently I dropped the ball because I didn't even finish off the second camera. I still need to finish taking them and get them in to be developed before she gets married in a couple weeks. Some of us stayed reasonable, we were feeling really good but in complete control, like me. And some of us were so drunk they don't remember parts of what happened or what they said that night.

One of the girls (the one who met us at the 2nd stop) who claims exactly that, caused a fight with the bachelorette when we were waiting on the train to take us back home. At least it was then and not at one of the previous stops. At first they were just yelling at each other so the rest of us just let them, including me. But once I saw the first push I got up (I was sitting down) because the bachelorette is a small girl and the other one isn't. There was no way I was going to let it get physical. A couple of the other girls and I were able to calm bachelorette down (to a point) before the train got there. And the other girl and her sister took off towards the front of the train away from us when we all started to board. But that was a good thing anyway. At the stop we all got off but those two. The sister was with us at the beginning though, apparently she decided to go to the next stop with the instigator which is their home town anyway.

From the station we walked to another bar but they were charging a 5 dollar cover charge since they had some band there. We said fuck that and walked out and went to a bar right next door that didn't charge. But we ended up only staying for one more drink. Two of the girls (the one who's home was just a short walk away) and another decided to walk there and start making up some food.

The last of us finished up our drinks and headed there after. Not the homeowner but the other girl had already passed out by the time we got there. A short while later one of the other girls decided to go home. The last of us four shot the shit for awhile longer and then I finally headed out. I had an hour drive home and by the time I got there and then ready for bed it was going on 3:30.

HD woke me up (which I hadn't really slept very well at all anyway) around 7:30 to spend some time with him for a few hours before he had to go to bed. Around 12:15 or so I finally started to feel exhausted and took a nap on the couch for about an hour and a half. Then for the rest of the day I sat on my ass reading.

Although it basically ended with a fight I still had a great time and would do it all again. Hell, before we even made it to the first stop a couple of us were already talking about trying to make it a monthly thing. Not necessarily the train/bar hopping every month but at least us getting together to do something every month, this just being one of the things we could do. We shall see if it actually ever happens.

Although this month would be shot because bachelorette and several of the friends and a couple of the coworkers are going to the Bahamas for her wedding. Damn lucky ducks.

Media quote of the day:
AC/DC - Have a Drink on Me

Whiskey, gin and brandy
With a glass I'm pretty handy
I'm trying to walk a straight line
On sour mash and cheap wine
So join me for a drink boys
We're gonna make a big noise

So don't worry about tomorrow
Take it today
Forget about the cheque
We'll get hell to pay

Have a drink on me

Dizzy, drunk and fightin'
On tequila white lightnin'
My glass is getting shorter
On whiskey, ice and water
So come on and have a good time
And get blinded out of your mind

So don't worry about tomorrow
Take it today
Forget about the cheque
We'll get hell to pay

Have a drink on me
(Get stoned)

Gonna roll around
Gonna hit the ground
Take another swing
Have another drink
Gonna drink it dry
Gonna get me high
Come on all the boys
Make a noise

Have a drink on me

My boring life

I feel like I could hurl right now. And it's not from my stomach but from my head. I am so fucking sick of my fucking head. And my left arm. Well, more precisely it's my left wrist but that makes my whole arm feel like it hurts, all the way up to my shoulder. But back to my head. This whole month has been a study in pain for the fucking thing. Today is bad enough that I actually should be home in bed but since I left early last Tuesday because of having a migraine and family issues there's no way in hell I'm leaving early today. I keep spacing out too which is not good.

And what's really bad is that I'm supposed to be keeping a diary of all these damn headaches and I haven't done it at all. Hell, since I haven't even been keeping up with this lately I can't even come on here to use this as a reference. But since I've had some form of a headache just about every single day it'll actually be pretty easy to tell the doc the next time I see him. The only thing I'll really have to do is figure out the days that I took an Imitrex. (EDIT: These two paragraphs were written on Wednesday the 28th)

So now it's Thursday and I still feel like shit. But today my stomach doesn't feel very well either. I'm just a walking crapfest this month. Sux big time!

So now it Friday and I still don't feel my best. But at least my stomach is back to normal. Actually that was fine by late yesterday afternoon.

This is how my weeks have been going. During the day I've been at work feeling like crap but making it through. I get home and just want to do nothing so that's what I've been doing. Our lives have been pretty damn boring lately. He's been working overtime and I've been feeling like shit so we've been doing a whole lot of nothing.

Hell, even the long weekend we didn't do much. Well not really. Saturday we went over to mow his grandma's lawn. Her whole lot is 3/4 acres. Her house & driveway takes up a small portion of it but the rest is lawn. I was going to start on the front with the push mower and he was going to start on the back with the riding mower. I had been working on the front for a good 20/30 minutes when he got a call from his grandma that she was ready to be picked up from his uncles house from Milwaukee. Since he was still trying to get the riding mower started and I was all hot and sweaty I told him to go ahead and go pick her up and I would continue mowing until they got back.

I took a break for about a half hour to eat a piece of chicken and drink a coke but then got right back out there. Yeah, 15 lawn bags and a couple hours later they finally showed up. I continued to mow and filled up two more lawn bags when HD said the last portion we should just mulch. I did two more swipes while he finished collecting the last of the bags and then he came and took over finishing the mowing for me. The worst part was it turns out the town she lives in doesn't even collect lawn clippings so there was no reason to even bag at all which what took so long to begin with. If could have just mulched I could've have cruised along. UGH!! Oh well, so be it.

Let me tell you I was exhausted. But really it was my feet hurting more than anything that was bothersome, mainly my toes. The next day my feet still hurt but my shoulders and neck were sore and I had a killer migraine. I ended up having to take an Imitrex to try to get rid of it but it didn't. I really should've taken another one but didn't.

Especially since Jim came over and we three went to see Indiana Jones and then Iron Man right after. I liked both movies. As far as Indiana went the story line was so so really but the acting was good. Harrison is still sexy as far as I'm concerned. And Shia is a real cutey pie and I think he'll do very well taking over the role. I really enjoyed Iron Man. I'm glad I know nothing about the comic book so I have no idea whether the movie did it justice or not. I'm just hoping Samuel L. Jackson does better in the sequel than he's been doing. Because the last few movies I've seen him he's been pretty flat.

Monday I had to take another Imitrex. Bad weather came through along with hormones coming in deciding to take their toll too.

So yeah, all the rest of the week was crap as you can see by the fact that I couldn't even finish an update.

Phew so that was last week and it's now Monday June 2nd. I think I'll just go ahead and post this sucker and do a whole other post for what I did on Saturday. But since I have to go mow the lawn and pay bills now it'll have to wait for another day.
