FRIDAYWork and school on Friday. Bagheera and I had a date and it was delightful. I worked outside for most of the afternoon until it was time to leave and meet Teh PT Family and Husband at Holy City for dinner.
When we got home from dinner, I worked on a new puzzle and listened to Outlander 6. Teh German had went to Teh PT House for cigars and after he came home, we went to bed.
SATURDAYSaturday was the beer thing in Columbia that I kept censoring on my calendar. I was able to get 4.6 miles in before we had to leave. Woot. I'm finally getting back into the running and it's deeeelightful.
Teh Dental Hygienist and I were the designated drivers for the beer event, so while everyone was getting wasteeeeeeddd, we went and had lunch at Eggs Up Grill (after our initial brunch choice had an hour and a half long wait, which we were not interested in) and then we headed to Riverfront Zoo in Columbia to be the only child-free/less adults at the zoo. I'll just let you imagine my reaction to that situation.
|Teh Dental Hygienist captured me in my element.|
|I warned Teh Dental Hygienist that if I found silly hats we would be taking selfies.|
|Moments later, I got poked in the face with an elephant trunk.. it was dirty.|
|Almost like Phil!|
|This would be a perfect Turxi (turtle+taxi).|
The beer event ended at 4, which was convenient since that's about the time we finished up walking through the zoo. We picked up our drunk ass friends and headed to Mellow Mushroom, per their demand.
Shenanigans ensued at Mellow Mushroom.. to include:
- Teh German decided he worked there and tried to steal/distribute pizza that was waiting to go to a table.
- This was the climax of the dinner and what initiated everything else that happened.
- Lots of use of "fuck" and "mother fucker" and "goddamn" and inappropriate volumes.
- The manager came to us to ask us to maybe stop yelling "fuck" so loudly... if at all.
- This was while I was trying to get the situation under control and I wanted to punch that MF in the mouth.
- I was almost certain Teh German was going to get into a fight with another drunk ass who claimed to be the owner of the restaurant.
- Someone puked in the bathroom.
- Everyone was taking their time and I was the most embarrassed I've ever been with a group of my friends and all I wanted to do was leave.
There was no photographic evidence because we were all shocked and cackling, but we got a full moon going down I-26 from the dude in blue in the above photo. Like, pretty sure I saw scrotum and we confirmed that his butthole is pink.
Teh German was the first to "fall asleep" (pass out) on the way home. At least in our car. I assume first of the group because he slept through the entire mooning debacle. When we got home shortly after 7, everyone unloaded and Teh German headed straight to bed.
With another evening to myself, I continued to puzzle and listen to Outlander 6. I ended up staying up wayyyy late to finish it. It took me almost a month of consistent listening to finish it. While I actually enjoyed this one, I was ready for it to be over just because I'd been listening to it for soooooooo loooooonnnngggg.
Goodreads says it's 980 pages.
Audible says 57h, 46 mins.
I listen to audiobooks when I'm driving and my commute time usually is
45 (home to school)
+15 (school to work)
+30 (work to home)
1.5 hrs of listening time, per day on average + other times when I listened, like puzzle time.
By 0100, I was in the bed. My brain was on high from the situation at Mellow Mushroom and/or I drank too much sweet tea, so I ended up taking some extra medication to finally get to sleep.
SUNDAYSunday was a home day.. and then it wasn't. We were able to sleep in. When I finally woke up (after getting up to feed the dogs earlier in the morning), I went over the prior afternoon with Teh German who couldn't remember most of it. He did remember trying to serve the pizza and said he had a dream we got kicked out of Mellow Mushroom (which I feel like we probably would have if our table combined hadn't been worth more than the collective tables we were pissing off (to include the table with the guy who yelled at us, "COULD YOU STOP YELLING THE F-WORD?!", which of course only served to make a table of drunk people yell more).
When we finally got out of the bed around 10, I had a weird motivational streak and made the week's menu and grocery list and threw on some gym pants and went to Walmart. When I got back home, Teh German had fixed Suzi and left to meet his biker gang for a brewery visit/ride.
I had some homework I needed to accomplish, but I prioritized puzzle and Still Me over homework. #notsorry
After not accomplishing much homework, I decided I was cold and took a bath to get warmed up.
|Those are not fart bubbles.|
Teh German came home right as I was getting out of the bath. He tried to start dinner, but realized we didn't have enough of the ingredients that we needed, which was super unfortunate for me. I had to put on a bra and my gym pants and go back out to the store to pick up milk and flour. Ugh.
When I got home, we set about making homemade Spätzle, which went poorly since it was our first time making it and we were both moderately hangary. After eating, I cleaned up (since Teh German had done most of the cooking) and Teh German hit the couch, while I worked on homework at the island.
After my code was written, I made dog breakfast and headed upstairs to do more laundry and then it was time for reading in bed until Teh German came to bed.
And just like that.. the weekend was over. :(
______________________________________________I woke up tired this morning and it's hard not to nap at my desk today.
This week includes getting super ahead on homework since we're going out of town (again) this weekend. This time, we're headed to FL to go on Teh German's first open water dive. It will be my first open water dive since GTMO, so it's definitely going to be interesting.
Otherwise, it should be a quiet week.
Time will tell.
PS. After January dragged on and on and on.. I'm glad that February is skipping through with a moderate quickness.
