Seeing: Humid days and overcast skies

Hearing: Spoiled and Zigo -- More and More

Touching: A cordless drill

Tasting: Stoli Citrona


I was on my way to werk today and I wound up thinking a lot of interesting things during the drive here...I don't totally remember the entire thing although I distinctly know i was concious the whole time. I ran off to the grocery store this weekend and took care of a ton of different errands and whatnot-finally got my mirror for the back of my door, it just took me forever to install it...stupid me didn't remember that you have to drill the holes in the door before you can screw the screws into it...but as soon as I figured that out it was a cinch to put the stupid thing in. It was really disconcerting this morning when I woke up and looked at it on the back of my door-I thought my door was open and worse that someone was standing in the doorway, so it'll take a little getting used to, but at least Katie will be happy-she's been wanting to be able to look at herself before she leaves my room for a while now, and it's a general good idea if my room is the last place I am in the morning before I go to work. That was a pretty big chunk of my day yesterday, being domestic, running around cleaning up the house and whatnot, doing dishes and laundry, you know how it goes. The day prior I was running around to the grocery store a couple of times to get some things for lunch and a few snacks, and I didn't even manage to spend a lot of money. It was a good weekend.

Getting completely drunk on Saturday night was a treat, I got to spend time with Rob and Dave and Brett and Rob's fiancee Katie-I was miding my own business in the kitchen cooking a pork roast, rice, and a potato, since I wanted something nice to eat for a change(and yes, it was damned good), and Katie suggested going on a liquor run, shortly before Brett showed up with a bottle of Vodka, KoolAid, and a bottle of Champagne...that's still in the fridge. Katie and Rob and Brett went to get drinks, I handed off a little bit of money and had them grab me some Citrona and Killians, most of which vanished by the end of the night. Safe to say we were stupid drunk, and I have the video to prove it-I had way too much fun. I do wish my Katie had managed to come over and have some fun, but I have some leftovers in my fridge downstairs for her to partake of next time the lovely lady decides to come over and hang out a bit. Maybe I can con her into going out and having a picnic with me or something and we can pack them into a cooler and take them...oooh...the romantic in me is getting all stirred up, I'd better chill...either that or send her an email, heh.

Anyway, aside from being riotously drunk saturday night and waking up at 7AM still drunk, only to stumble to the bathroom, stumble back, drink a ton of water, and pass out again, I had really strange dreams....but it was a good night. The food was good, and I think Katie ate the leftover pork roast.
good times.

I dunno, I can't hold that against her, I did offer her the leftovers, and hey, I got to see her mostly naked later that evening...once she got drunk enough, she started peeling off clothing, and before we knew it she was pantless, on rob's lap, and the two of them were pretty far down the foreplay road before the rest of our drunken asses knew was about the time when her top was on her person but not covering anything it was supposed to be covering and her underwear were beginning to come off when they decided to go upstairs and have some of the loudest sex I've ever heard.

Lucky bastard.

In the meantime, it's looking like a good week. I have some business to take care of down at the University of Maryland tomorrow, and I took a day off work for it, and we'll see how that works out..well, I hope, even though it might mean a few more changes here and there....and I'm still thinking about moving into a different offense, but as much fun as I had saturday night, it was still a pain in the ass this morning to wake up knowing that the dog had shit in front of the bathroom door again. Sure Amy was awake to clean it up, but she oh so graciously put the shit in the bathroom trash can, rather than flushing it down the toilet. Yeah. Intelligent.
Anyway. Just something else I'd rather not have to deal with. In the meantime, work is a wonderful place, offering me an out to that house, and by the end of the day I'm happy to go back, if not to do nothing else but go to bed. Tonight I want to not break myself by going to sleep too early and then waking up for two or three hours in the middle of the night and then go back to sleep-if I go to bed I want to just go to bed...last night I had a hard enough time sleeping. Maybe I should invest in some sleeping pills to make it a little easier to get some rest now and again. Maybe Katie'll call. Who knows.

Anyways, I need to update my links page, some of the webcomics I have listed aren't really doing anything anymore, and some of the friends' sites are pretty dead too...I wish I could say I had a ton more content to update with, but I haven't really stumbled on anything that interesting that I haven't told you about yet. If you have anything you think would be particularly interesting, let me know.

On my way to work today, I was thinking about some people...I was wondering how Robyn was doing...old Robyn McDill...I called her a while ago just to see what was up, but I'm curious how she's doing now-I haven't talked to the red-haired lovely in a really long time and I hope she's doing okay....I don't even know if I have recent or up to date phone numbers for her or anything. Oh well. I was also thinking about Christina, who I wish I hadn't fallen out with so badly-I do very much wish we still talked or hung out at all, instead of having gotten into this kind of angsty silence. I was thinking a lot about Katie, and wondering why she wanted to come back into my arms...I'm convinced I have a lot of growing to do, a lot of changing, and that girl's been the only one who really managed to put up with my shit for the longest time...she loved my bullshit so much she was willing to come back to it, given enough time. I love that girl, even if she doesn't call me or return my messages sometimes, heh.

So I still haven't gotten around to burning a lot of stuff on my computer to CD yet, that's been a project I've been meaning to start, so once I get all that stuff off my HD I might invest in a larger drive to replace the 7Gig boot drive I have now....that'll put me up to 80Gigs...I'm such a little pig when it comes to computers and new toys. I have to save for my turntables now-I've paid off about half of my credit card bill, next paycheck will pay off the other half, and then it's turntables all the way...then I get to spend money on records, heh. All the while, however, I need to save money to get a new's all about living like a poor man.

So we'll see how it goes. I'll keep you posted.
