He has risen..... indeed.

Remember the time I stayed in on Friday night? yeah me either. Friday night caught me with one of my friends whom I played baseball with in elementary school.... yes b*tches that's right, I played baseball. My parents thought it'd be a good idea to be part of a "team." I only caught one ball the entire season and that was with my eyes closed a la sandlot fame, ps I still have the ball, pps if anyone makes any comments about my being able to catch I will cut you.

ANYWAYS we went to a bar in georgetown for one of our mutual friends birthdays.... now I hate bars in georgetown on the weekend, frat trash and sorostitutes galore, crowded, noisy, basically a bunch of people patting themselves on the back for being cool in georgetown.... woo....hoo, give me a dive bar and the ability to wear my hat indoors any day. We saw some kids that we'd gone to HS with, who have jobs like golf instructor, or works for a siding company..... I hate the "what do you do" game because it always ends up in my doing awkward robot dance ESPECIALLY when it's followed by the "where do you live now" game.... DOUBLE ESPECIALLY when the person I'm talking to says things like "Germantown" or "Alexandria"..... suburbs....ewwwwwwwwwww.

Saturday I spent the morning and early afternoon at the georgetown location of Snobby Retail Location. Are the guys I'm working with hot? yes, yes they are. Do I get a fantastic discount? yes, yes I do. The one part about this gig that I think is HILARIOUS is that I will be keeping a "clientele" book and when I am supposed to develop a client base that will come into the store on a regular basis so that I can outfit them in the appropriate accoutrement. The manager may or may not have expressed the idea to send birthday presents to our clients as well.... this is pretty crazy.

Saturday night after walking from Georgetown to my new pad and cooking a digiorno pizza and making myself a little drinky poo, I may or may not have fallen asleep ON the half eaten digiorno pizza while watching Steel Magnolias on the floor since I have no furniture besides my bed at the moment..... that was a totally better idea than going out and perhaps meeting a new gentleman caller..... totally better.

I celebrated the resurrection of our lord with several ladies and have not eaten such good quiche in years... the theme of the little gathering was "there is no judgement on easter"...because I shared the digiorno story...

Went to my parents house in the afternoon, who were more than half in the bag when I got there, mom in her requisite pearls and sun hat on the deck drinking a bloody mary, dad in his khakis drinking I think a rusty nail or something. Gorged on more food, drank more wine... went to bed at 10pm....

I think I'm taking a mental health day this week. I'm so over my job

We were going to go with the rusty nails last night, but we got distracted by the cheap beer. I argued it was the way Jesus would've wanted us to spend his day. Now, if only I could turn cheap beer into Bombay Sapphire...

I've never actually had a rusty nail but I'm very intrigued by them... one time when I was freshman in college (2000), some older kids dared me to drink a soleau cup full of jim beam... I did it... and had an exorcist moment when I projectile vomited all over one of their gf's... needless to say I stay away from brown liquor now.

Missed you Friday!

Mental health days are necessary evils...

I took my mental health day yesterday. I probably should have reserved it for a day later this week. But I was totally good this weekend and stayed in Friday and Saturday nights. I did however go out and get tore up from the floor up on Sunday. I mean, it's resurrection day honey. So yesterday was a day of rest. It's gorgeous outside today though so if you are taking any day off, today would be a good one!
