Misc. Monday Stuff

Happy Monday, folks!   I'm not gonna lie to ya -- I'm dragging ass this morning.  It's a gray, drizzly day and all I want to do is go home and hide from the world, but I was a good girl and came to work despite my generalized malaise.  My crazy cat lady coworker was thrilled to see me, of course; she seems to view my presence in the office as proof that I'm dying to hear every waking thought and muscle movement she's had over the past 72 hours since we last spoke.

In reality, we all know that my presence in the office indicates nothing more than my desire to be paid so that I can buy myself that solid gold toilet I've always dreamed about.

My weekend was good, but nothing too outrageous.  On Friday night I went to dinner & a movie with Mala and we laughed our asses off for about five hours straight.  It was pretty awesome, even if we can't remember (or repeat) exactly what was so funny.  I'm sure it had something to do with the wine that was a'flowin' during dinner, but we were both also bringing our "A Games" with the witty repartee.

At one point we were talking about our plans to flee the East coast next February and she mentioned a good friend of ours who will be going on a mission to Haiti with her church group that month.  So M's gonna save babies and shit while Mala and I will be stalking celebrities and drinking our body weight in Appletinis... and that's just the trouble we have PLANNED.

I might have made a joke about how M will be rescuing orphans and I'll be *mumble mumble*  blowing homeless guys *mumble*, but that was just a joke, I swear!  Whatevs; it made Mala laugh so hard that she wished she'd brought along a change of underwear, so it was all in a day's work for La Bev.  *polishing fingernails on shirt*

We saw Social Network, which was really good and only made me feel yucky about using Facebook a little bit.  Okay, a lot, but I'm working through it.

Let's face it, if I shunned all technology that was created by bitter, entitled, mean-spirited, self-centered assholes I wouldn't be able to use any of it, now would I?

It was a really good movie, though - very entertaining.  I couldn't stop staring at the overly-botoxed area between Justin Timberlake's eyebrows, but I didn't let that stop me from enjoying his performance.  Much.

Other than that evening, the weekend was intentionally lame-o.  D had a friend over on Saturday so my focus was just making sure the boy left with the same number of digits he arrived with, and I spent Sunday cleaning out my walk-in closet and unearthing all sorts of crazy crap that I forgot I had.  Yes, I know, I lead a fascinating life!

So that's that.  What did you guys do?  Share with the group, please.  :)

I got married over the weekend.

Now I just have to figure out how to tell my girlfriend.

I really did it just to shut up the rumors in my family that I might be gay, but I'm sure that Paul and I will be very happy.

"M's gonna save babies and shit"

Yes, if the cholera thing doesn't clear up soon, she will be shitting. A lot.

I also just wrote down in my notebook to move to California in February. I will, of course, be too poor to afford suitable housing. So, I guess it'll be the streets for me!

Well, MJenks, Bev did say something about liking homeless guys....

My weekend sucked but I won't go into it here. It didn't turn out like I had expected and there was no jolly peeing of the pants involved:(

You guys really should take your act on the road and come visit your followers;)

Mala said...

I blame the two bottles of vino with dinner, but I don't believe it was moi who needed to bring their extra undies in a zippy bag.

Next time we MUST vlog, if for no other reason then to remember what the hell was so funny.

And I'll still vote for you for your humanitarian efforts! Anyone can save a baby... but how many can fellate someone who lives behind a dumpster?

I did, in fact, succeed in parking a car in the garage on Friday before spending an hour in Hell, (known in these parts as JoAnn Fabrics). Saturday, I wrapped Lori in half a roll of duct tape, then sat around and alternately watched stuff off the DVR and napped the rest of the day while she puttered around doing something, somewhere. Oh, and I went to Arby's.

Yesterday, I watched a few more things on DVR and came into work for about 7 hours. Had a brief chat with the cops mid-afternoon after setting off the office alarm.

Bev said...

Frank - Mazel Tov! I can't wait to meet Paul. :D

Jenks - Ya' don't say? Your cardboard box or mine?

OBMJ - Sorry your weekend sucked! I would LOVE to do a BOOBH road-trip! Be careful what you wish for.... ;)

Mala - Oh, my bad! I thought we both had the "Kegal Incentive Program" going on!

Elliott - You talked to the cops and it WASN'T about wrapping your wife in duct tape? Well done, my friend. Well done.

Elliott said...

I have skills. Though I did worry when they showed up with two squads.

Doc said...

Homeless guys huh?


My son was sick this weekend so I couldn't take him to th efootball game with me yesterday. BOO!

MtnMama said...

Let's see... I found my grass-fed beef and made a lovely meatloaf. I baked chocolate chip cookies. I put on pants on Saturday ONLY to hang Halloween decor outside (which is now blowing around like crazy as we have a storm front coming in... Yay) and I read abot a hundred pages of Passages. Pretty great, I think. Oh, and I worked my way through about ten pounds of paper from my enormous desk. (see blog for details...)
One more vote for Vlogging and Touring.


I too saw the facebook movie and came to one conclusion: The filthy rich trample the lil' people to get there.

Senorita said...

Thank GOD that I don't have a crazy cat lady at my job ! Why do they think we care about their pussies at home ?

It took a lot for me to get my ass out of bed, but I am proud that you and I ended up making it to work ! Yay for golden toilets !

Bev said...

Elliott - You looked like trouble, clearly.

Doc - Boo to sick kiddos!

MtnMama - Mmmmm, now I totally want meatloaf.

Israel - Yup! The rich get richer. bastards.

Senorita - Dream big! :)

I killed my crazy cat lady neighbor this weekend. It was time. She was miserable and needed to be put down. I boarded up all the windows and doors and set her house on fire. Is that wrong?

Please don't tell anyone. Thx.
