Wow, what a weekend! I seriously feel like I played way more than I should have. Grrr…I need to be working! I just finished one of several papers I need to have done for next week. *sigh* The quality of my writing just hasn’t been up to par lately. Maybe it’s stress? hmmm.
Friday I actually had a date *gasp!* I had fun. He lured me with the promise of pumpkin carving and kung fu movies. We didn’t actually get to carve pumpkins, but that’s because we realized after cooking dinner together that he didn’t have anywhere to carve the pumpkins (like no table or newspaper, etc.) So we’re going to hopefully get around to it some time this next week. And…we actually didn’t watch kung fu movies either. But, we did rent two kinda scary movies…you know, to go along with the spirit of halloween and such. We watched 28 Days and the Devil’s Advocate. I closed my eyes during several scenes from both and he just gave me a play by play commentary when necessary to maintain a knowledge of the story line. haha. I know, I’m a dork…but I’d rather close my eyes and spare myself the ugly pictures in my head. So, that was a fun evening. It was interesting to because my friend is a vegan and I’ve never attempted to cook for a vegan before. I guess there’s a first time for everything.
That same night I also got a call from Dan the man. He wanted to hang out. I felt so bad! But so it goes. We might hang out sometime next weekend and catch up on the CSI and Without a Trace episodes I’ve been recording. He’s a huge fan of Bruckheimer too.
Saturday was beautiful! But this lady at work totally tried to bring down my spirit. She was such a cranky pants! I can’t even describe her negative activity in the store…but let me just say…nothing I did could possibly have made her a happy satisfied customer. Bummer. After like two hours, she marches out the door grumbling…with her poor, irritated husband trailing behind. I felt bad for him.
Then Matt stopped by to say bye. He and his band were off to play a concert somewhere in Oregon (I think). He asked if I’d like to go with him to see this star that’s only visible every so many years after he got back on Sat. I said sure! I like stars, I always have. So I was excited about that. And after he left, Dave (the packing and shipping guy at the bookstore) comes up behind me and says “That was a great line…” and he mocks Matt. Dave had just printed up this sheet of pick up lines to show me just a few minutes before Matt came in the store and he picks it up and flips through the pages saying “nope, that one’s not even on the top twenty list.” haha.
Unfortunately, I missed Matt’s call later that night. I was watching Top Gun with a bunch of people on our floor and giving massages. I like being able to put what little knowledge I have of acupressure points into use. I was happy to be able to fix Danielle’s back and wrist. (Danielle is our PA). Anyway, my roommate decided not to let me know about Matt’s call until the next morning. That was a bit frustrating. We’ve always had our post-it note rule and she didn’t leave one this time. So I missed out on star gazing. Well, actually I just missed out on having company for star gazing, because when I got back after the movie…I had a nice long quiet time out on our balcony. It was beautiful. God is good.
So, even though I didn’t get to play tennis like last weekend…I was still blessed to have the chance to hang out with the cool people on my floor. I was a bit discouraged the first few weeks of this quarter because I knew I wouldn’t have much time for fun and I was worried I’d never get to know people. I got to know a lot more people in Robbins last night than I have since the beginning of this quarter! haha. oh! And it was so sweet…when I walked into Mark’s apartment to sit and watch the movie…this really sweet guy, Scott, who lives one door over, across the hall said “I’m really glad you came to watch the movie with us.” It was so nice…you just don’t hear stuff like that anymore. What a stud.
So, despite my roommate being gone all weekend to visit her boyfriend, I managed to keep myself occupied with even amounts of play time and study time. hooray.
I should go sleep now…*yawn*
P.S. Loreanne and Kenny…I miss you guys!

    That’s nothing out of the ordinary. I say that all the time. It’s nice, but you do hear that all the time. Well i guess not in Seattle 😀
    maybe it’s a pickup line from that book or whatever
    Anyways, I didn’t mean to ruin your posting. Actually, I’m really glad
    you came to post this message for us to read. hehe *wink *wink
