I heart Labor Day
So, in America which I love(this weekend, at least) it is labor day weekend. What that means is that I don't have to work tomorrow aaaand it's only a four day week which equals that Leah only has 9 more days left of work!!! I heart you, forefathers or whoever came up with the idea of labor day. Anyhoo, this weekend, L came down from Boston to visit with me and P for possibly the last time before I leave. Let me just say, L is one loud, crazy m-effer. She is hilarious and so bold and a ton of fun. It is honestly pretty tiring keeping up with her, though, as silence is not an option, she talks wicked fast and jumps from one subject to the next in, like, .5 seconds. But, it's worth it fo sho. Just to fill you in-L and P are friends from High School(2 of about 4 good friends, one being the BFF, I have left from HS...and then there are the 3 stragglers besides those 4) and it's refreshing to get to hang out with them because they are just so genuine and nice...yet, they still have an edge. I love me some multi-dimensional peepz.
We got manicures and pedicures(just a mani for me as I'm trying to be good about spending mulah) and I was too excited as I can count the manis and pedis I've had in my life on one hand: 4...3 being manis and 1 pedi(for the first time this summer, I'll have you know!) I dunno, something before just made me uncomfortable with people buffing, washing and lotioning my feet. Call me crazy, but it all seems a bit too patronizing at times...plus I dislike my feet...feet in general, really. So, I opted for just the mani and I loooooove it(hence the photo for today's post) Isn't it pur-ty? After the manis and pedis, we headed to a Thai restaurant on the recommendation of some random at the salon and let me tell you, it suuuuucked. Besides the interesting conversation and the cutesy setting, the whole experience was a bust. It took us 30 mins to get seated(it wasn't even that busy either!) and 30 more mins to get our appetizer. We noticed the trend of waiting, and we were starving like crazy, so my friend, L, whips out not one, but two Cliff Bars from her bag and we all chowed down like the classy ladies we are, haha! We were about ready to eat the Bamboo off all the tables, but managed to stick it out for another HOUR until our food came. We all started to practically inhale the stuff and a few bites later I said, "do you guys even like your food?" And they were like "actually, not really." We were just so effing starving that we started eating without really thinking about it and realized soon after that we were very unimpressed. P had the Pad Thai, it was saucy, yet bland. L and I both had something called Chicken Raam, it too was bland and just altogether bo-ring. No thanks to the Green Papaya. All that time for nada!
5,000 hours later when we were finally done, we headed to Blockbuster and picked up a random movie with the girl from Scrubs and the guy from Ed thinking they're funny, it could be funny. Nope. No luck there. I normally just say no to random films, but I was actually the one who suggested it because nothing else looked good...scratch that, it was more because L has apparently seen almost every movie known to man. Anyway, about 15 mins into it, I proclaimed, "I'm bored, how bout you guys?" They were thinking the exact same thing, so episodes of Will&Grace were quickly proposed as the solution and all was good.
Ok, I just realized most of you reading are probably sleeping out of BOREDOM by now, but I guess I can write a lot about nothing really. So, ignoring your boredom, I'll continue! Today, L left with a potential plan to help see me off at the airport, which would be nice. ALTHOUGH, last time consisted of me saying goodbye to my fam all smiles and jokes until I turned, went through security and tears started streaming down my face. So, I don't know that another person that I will miss will really help that situation, I'm hoping my cat giving me the hairy eyeball for packing her up and taking her trans-atlantic will be enough to avoid "tear fest 2006" as I have decided to call it. Besides that, I went to the mall to buy more makeup that I probably(definitely) don't need...but wait, that shade is a little darker than that one and this one has a sheen to it. I'm ridiculous. Umm, what else? Oh yeah, went to Petco and Border's...boring, I know. But, I am hearting this free feeling I'm having knowing that Sunday doesn't mean the next day equals me back at work. Ugh, good riddance! Tomorrow will probably consist of me lazing around, organizing something or other(can anyone say anal?) and auditioning to be a hand model. Kidding on that last one, of course! K, better end this as my towel wrapped around my hair like Erykah Badu is really turning into an Erykah Ba-DONT(stole that from W&G, of course!) I'm out like trout, a bientot!!
