Weekend Review {02/11}


School and work on Friday.  I went back to the office after German class and met some coworker at Evo while they ate lunch.  Then we agreed to move to Commonhouse for teleworking.  I went by the office, grabbed my computer and heated up my lunch and went over to hang out for a while.  We ended up moving over to Stems and Skins for an hour or so, where I really splurged and had a Radler.  I know, I know.. partying hard.

Around 4:15, I decided it was time to head home.  Teh German went to the gym, but I was on Bagheera, so I skipped the gym since I knew that if I had to leave home to go to the gym, it wouldn't actually happen.  This cuteness awaited me at home...

Teh German and I had been discussing riding out for dinner, but he wasn't in the mood, so I finished prepping the ramen I had made on Thursday and we had that for dinner.  After dinner, we headed to Teh PT House for hangings outs.  By 10:00, we were all unhinging our jaws with our yawns since we are so old.


I opted to go the gym on Saturday morning to make up for not going on Friday.  I also had to pick up Teh Running Bestie's new toy for Pax, so I had dual motivation.. AND the gym is right across from Walmart, soooo it worked itself out, literally.

The Walmart Cuddlepillar

When I got home, Teh German was doing fish tank things.

And looking like a pirate....

After a shower, I tried to start on homework, but wasn't overly motivated.  Actually, I was overly irritated because I had asked Teh German to scoop poop since I thought after ice skating we'd have people over for a fire since the weather was perfect.  When he finally went out to scoop, I was relieved.  He had done everything possible he could have, fish tank things, watched YouTubes, Teh German Time... he literally had nothing else to do except watch more videos, so he finally went outside...  I took this opportunity to go upstairs and take a nap since I figured it would be a long night and my brain was NOT focused on German homework.

Since the NFL ruined my birthday weekend, I opted to delay the celebration.  I arranged dinner at Locals Sushi in Park Circle for a group, then some of us headed to the Ice Palace for some ice skating and/or dodging skaters who were better than we were who weren't paying attention to the hazards they were.  True story.  I saw one guy take out a teenager on a walker (pvc pipe supports for those who need "training wheels" so to speak) because he was skating backwards and, obviously, not watching where he was going.  She hit her face on the ice and I felt sooo bad for her.  This was not the on person this dude took out, but he was doing his professional ice skater thing and he was not to be stopped.....

There were other "professionals" who were hazards, but I just tried not to bust my ass, run into anyone, or get stabbed by an ice skate.  Teh PT Kid did almost amputate my foot and/or toes when he dropped his skate centimeters from my foot, and that almost gave me a heart attack, but I survived.

GLCK sighting!

Dinner ran later than I had anticipated, but I wasn't overly surprised.  Which meant that we stayed at the Ice Palace longer than I had anticipated, which was a surprise.  We actually had a lot of fun and not being bad at something means that I actually enjoy it!  I didn't fall a single time!  #WIN

When we left the Ice Palace, I alerted those who had asked me, and a few people came to the house for fire time.  Sadly, the wood was "dead" as Teh German kept calling it, so it wasn't overly warm and we ended up moving inside.  By midnight, we were all tired and it was bedtime.


I had realized when we got to the Ice Palace that I had left the cake and cards at Locals, oops.  I had called them and asked them to put the cake in the fridge and that I'd swing by and pick it up Sunday.  This really meant that it was a brunch day.  When I woke up around 10, I started checking Yelp for places to go, but couldn't come up with anything.

Then Teh German woke up 25 minutes later, I explained the situation and he was like, "How about Holy City?" And I'm like, "This is why I'm keeping you for forever."  So we got up and got ready and headed to HC for breakfast.  I had the chicken and pretzel (which sounds weird, but was insanely delightful) and Teh German had some sort of hashbrown toast thing... idk, it looked good, but I was pleased with my life choice.

After HC, we headed to Locals to pick up my forgotten items...

Then it was back to the hizzouse.  I opened my cards and gift (thanks everyone!) and munched on some cake, and then headed to the office to study for my German test.

There was a Harry Potter surprise keychain in the gift, and I felt like Fang was a PERFECT surprise.

After a bit of studying, I headed to the couch for a nap.  I could have NOT taken a nap and suffered through studying, but I figured #YOLO bitches.  I had also decided NOT to get ahead on my German HW since we have a test and I didn't want to confuse myself.  This makes more sense when I explain that we are reading a book and sometimes I get the order of events mixed up when I read too far ahead.

Anyways, Meri and I napped like pros while Teh German watched YouTubes.  Around 4:30, I finally decided it was productive time.  We were eating dinner by 5:30, which was nice.  After dinner, I headed to the office to really study... andddd I spent over an hour searching for online statistics and chem classes I could take that The Citadel would accept.  Spoiler Alert: I can't find any, which makes me stabby.  I also semi-decided on getting a German minor since I should have some free time in my schedule towards the end, which would be perfect for completing some German classes since the Computer Science department mostly only offers the requirements for a CS degree.  Rarely do they offer an extra, high-level CS class that would fulfill any requirements because our department is so small.  Kinda disappointing actually, but oh well.

So after fucking off all day, I finally did get some studying in.  Around 9:30, I wrapped it up, and then it was sort-the-laundry time and then bedtime.


You know how sometimes you have a shit memory so you have to do things to remind yourself to do things?  That was me last night.  I put my breakfast sammich on the celery so that way I'd see the celery and remember that I needed to load up the crockpot for dinner tonight.  Otherwise... I would have forgotten... again.

This is self-care.

Overall, a very good weekend.  It was great getting to hang out with everyone to celebrate my birthday.  Also, ice skating is a blast.. even though I have 2 bruises and a chafed spot from the skates.  We're planning on going again when it's less crowded.

This week includes:
-German test
-German homework
-Other homework
-Pew Pew Lasors appt
-Valentines Day, if that's your thing.  Not ours.
-Gettin mah hairs did... fucking finally.  I've been threatening to trim my hair myself because it's getting stuck between my back and the chair that I'm sitting in when it's down... which means that shit is too long.
-Teh German will be having adventures Saturday and returning Sunday which means I have the house to myself all day Saturday and half the day Sunday.  I'm trying to accomplish every.possible.thing this week so I can fuck off and do nothing all weekend (aka watch as much Grace and Frankie as I want).  It's going to be glorious!
