Why do weekends have to end?

Final exams just can’t get here soon enough. I can not wait until May. The last of my exams are May 1, so close and yet so far away. The following week, I’ll be starting a guitar class at the community college here for a few weeks, and the week after that I’ll be going to the beach with my family. I am so looking forward to a vacation.

I need to get back on track with my blogging, too; I like blogging daily, but making time to do it or finding something to write about has been a challenge lately.

The weekend was pretty good, despite an awesome sunburn Saturday. Friday night I took some money I’d saved up, and my mom and I went shopping so I could get some summery clothes. For reference, it is AMAZING what a well-fitted bra can do. I was trying on this top, and one of the clerks in the store went out on a limb to ask when the last time I’d been fitted was… needless to say it had been a WHILE. I know I SHOULD get it done about once a year, but… it had been about seven or eight years. Eheh. Oops?

Spring Break!

I know I’ve been missing for a few days. Sorry.

As of last Saturday, I am on spring break. This means I am hanging out with the Boychik and Dante a lot. I am trying to sleep some, too. I might not manage regular posts this week. But I will return with them Monday, at the latest. Until then, I might be a bit sporadic. Believe me, I have a story for yall, and when I have time to sit down and write it the way it deserves to be written, I will definitely put it up here.

Now, though… sleep.

Power that can smash even the souls of the gods…

So I didn’t get a post up yesterday. I know. I’m sorry. To be fair, yesterday was painful and involved little down-time. My shoulder is killing me, and I am finally getting over a nasty allergic flare-up. Today’s a bit better… less sniffling and coughing on my part and therefore less shoulder pain. Still, I am at work. That’s not a terribly bad thing… Fridays are pretty quiet, and I generally LIKE my job. I just have a whole list of things I’d really rather be doing. For example, today is a perfect lazy day. It’s getting darker out… a storm’s on the way in, I hear. I would love to be at home, in bed or curled up on the couch, and playing WoW.

After work, I’m thinking I’m heading over to Dante’s for a little bit to watch some anime. It’s weird to write that… I’ve been out of anime for years. But Dante made the mistake of buying me the box set of my favorite season of my favorite anime, and he decided he wanted to watch it…. And suddenly I’m back into my favorite shows. Slayers, Oh! My Goddess, Ranma 1/2… I was really into the anime and manga scene in middle school. I generally got out of it when I started high school, though I’ve always held onto that love for certain series. Slayers holds a special place in my heart. I told Dante about it one night, and, lo and behold, come Christmas… Slayers Next on DVD!

We finished watching it last night. He just ordered Slayers Try, which comes out in two weeks, and in the meantime he’s going to see the Oh! My Goddess movie, and we’ll probably start watching some Ranma. That, and working on WoW. I want another 70, and I know the Boychik is dying for a tank. We’ll see how much leveling we can get done this weekend.

A lazy Saturday.

So this morning was cool. Sister and I got up and went to the Fox for breakfast. It’s been a long time since the two of us did anything together, so it was nice to get out and chat. I got a massive waffle, and she got the pancakes, and it was all fantastic. The Fox is my absolute favorite greasy spoon diner ever. Their breakfast and their burgers are fantastic.

We also hit the tanning beds, me for the first time. I’ll be going a lot for a few weeks, since I have to wear white for the Vagina Monologues, and white on pasty white just doesn’t work so well. I’d rather not be blinding up on stage, you know?

I got some homework done this afternoon, but I think I am going to spend my evening playing World of Warcraft. It’s been about a week since the last time I logged on… far too long. I miss shooting things in the face, you know?

Leaving the weekend behind always sucks.

Despite the fact that I got absolutely nothing done, it was really a very enjoyable weekend. Friday night was generally uneventful. Saturday I met one of my band mates at the church for a little jam session, and later that afternoon the Boychik came over for some one-on-one time. We popped in Lord of the Rings and settled down to enjoy doing absolutely nothing for a few hours, or at least until our friend Ash got off. We picked up my other boy, who shall hereafter be known as Dante, and drove around looking for some dinner before grabbing a spot in a parking lot and loitering for a few hours.

Yesterday started off horribly; my guitar died right before the service. I took it to another bandie’s place afterwards, and he fixed her up, so she’s okay now, but… well, let’s leave it at the-morning-sucked. The Boychik called me up that afternoon to see if I wanted to hang out while he got his oil changed. I am always up for hanging out with the Boychik; who was I to say no? I tossed the homework aside, and the Boychik showed up with Dante. We spent the afternoon wandering around, generally, before going back to my place to watch a couple movies.

Seriously, I can hardly ask for a better weekend. Sunday, hanging out with the Boychik and Dante and the Boychik’s sexy car at Sonic… Those are some fantastic times. Those two make me laugh so hard, and I love them for it. I need to start carrying a camera around more often so I can get more pictures of them; they’re really more attractive than either of them knows.

The Boychik! He comes bearing movies.

Well, today is March 1, the beginning of NaBloPoMo , and therefore the beginning of daily blogging for 31 days. It would really be far more appropriate to list my goals in my first post, but… the Boychik is here, and he takes precedence. So… I’ll do an actual post tomorrow. Eheh.
