Checkin’ in

January 6, 2009

I have a post rattling around in my head, but it may be a while before it makes it to the blog. Thought I’d better pop in and say hello though, since I haven’t posted in several weeks!

Giggle, snort

Magic Scarf models

So, last weekend Jenn and I met Mary Beth in Akron so we could go see “Twilight” together.

The weekend kicked off with Jenn driving to my house, then we went shopping, and Jenn got a tattoo. I did not expect to spend four hours at a tattoo parlor, and neither did she, but we did, and it was kind of interesting.

After that, we went back to the house, Dave picked up a pizza, and we played Harry Potter Scene It? Yes, I won, but I was behind for a while.

Saturday morning Jenn and I headed to Akron. We hung out with my sister for a while, then MB got there so the four of us hung out. Then we quickly checked into the hotel and scooted off to the movie theater.

After the movie, and after I cleared the car of snow, we had dinner at … where the hell did we eat? Applebees maybe. Then I cleared the car again and we went to Wal-Mart. At some point we also went to the grocery store, but honestly, I don’t remember when.

Once back in the hotel room, much drinking, taking photos and listening to music ensued. Jenn gave us each a Magic Scarf, slippers and a couple other things, and I think it’s safe to say that we had a little too much fun with the scarves. I think it’s also safe to say that I was loaded. Lots of laughing, complete with snorting. Oh, we also called Jeff and bothered him for about an hour.

Sunday morning we checked out, had breakfast with Kim & Charles, and then we all headed back home. And no, no hangover. Just an upset stomach from eating too much crap.

And … that’s it. So much fun! I’m thinking we should do it again, like the last weekend in March. Or something like that.

What a day

Me & Super Queer

Originally uploaded by Dani H.

It’s cold. And snowing. A lot. So, what did I do today? After having lunch and shopping for books, I went to an equal rights rally at BGSU with Dave and Joy!

I’ve never attended a rally/protest, but you know what? This is important. It’s absolutely ridiculous that only certain couples are “allowed” to get married, and I am so damn disappointed in California that I don’t even have the words.

So, I went to the Join the Impact event at BG — I know, it’s not a lot, but it’s something. And maybe someday I’ll be able to do more.

That photo there is me with BGSU’s very own gay superhero, Super Queer.

It’s here!

Hooray, my Band From TV CD & DVD arrived today! I knew it wouldn’t take until Monday! I already have it in iTunes, ready for my drive to Marion later. Speaking of which, I need to go buy a sweatshirt and make my costume.

Happy Halloween!

oh, the whiskey

October 31, 2008

The whiskey, it’s taken control.  We got to the bar early for my coworker’s send-off, and here I am, 7 whiskey & cokes later. I feel the need to tell you this immediately. Why? I’m not sure. Perhaps because, as luck would have it, it’s the happy drunk who emerged tonight, not the angry one. Seriously, lucky for all. Everyone got a good laugh at my expense, I’m sure, but I don’t give a fuck. I needed to cut loose, and apparently this is the night for it.

I would like to state for the record that Dave was encouraging me to drink more. So, if he has to clean up after me, it’s his doing.

I’m trying to remember if I’ve ever drunkenly blogged before. It doesn’t seem like I have, but I could be wrong.

We were going to watch “The Office,” but I think maybe that’s best left for Saturday, along with “House.” Pretty sure none of it would make sense right now.

So, nighty-night!

My iPod is hungry

October 29, 2008

It’s become a voracious little gadget, and I’m trying to keep it fed. My iTunes library pales in comparison to Jenn’s, but I’m working on it. Jenn’s hooking me up with some stuff Friday, and a guy at work is looking to see if he has some songs that I want. What he doesn’t have my parents do, so yay! Also, a CD that I’ve very much been looking forward to is on its way here, and I’m very excited! A DVD too, but that’s not for the iPod.

Anyway, the CD is “Hoggin’ all the Covers” by Band From TV. Never heard of them? How sad for you; they’re very good. Basically, they’re a group of actors who do covers of various songs and raise money for different charities. Go check out their Web site, then order the CD. You’ll like it.

My copy is “in transition” according to Amazon, having left the Cincinnati shipping facility early this morning. Estimated time of arrival is Monday, but I’m really hoping it doesn’t take that long. I mean geez, Cinci is only a few hours away!

A bit better

October 28, 2008

My mood has improved a little since my last few posts. Not completely, but it has improved.

So, what’s been going on around here for the last two weeks? Uh, not a whole lot. I’ve done lots of laundry, we got new windows Thursday, our furnace went out twice, iTunes is now on my laptop and I uploaded a slew of songs, Time Warner is fighting with the owner of our local Fox station and yanked the channel so we can’t watch new House episodes until eight days after they air, we got a new garbage disposal.

That’s about it. I know, exciting stuff. Oh, I went home early with a migraine on Oct. 8 and nipped one in the bud Saturday night. Hadn’t had one since December, just before my surgery. Don’t know what that’s all about. Well, actually, I have an idea, but I think we’ll just chalk it up to coincidence.

Sooooo … Friday I’m going to Columbus with Jenn to see her friend’s band perform. Our costumes, if we can pull them together will be very cute. I’m not telling you what they are though! I’ll post pictures this weekend.

And that’s about it. Pity me and my lack of Fox tonight.

My weekend

October 11, 2008

Laundry. Cleaning. Lunch with the family. Work on Sunday.

You come up with a title

October 9, 2008

Not going to California. Don’t want to talk about it.

On to the fun stuff

September 27, 2008

All right, this is getting out of hand. Three posts in one day? Madness. Sheer madness.

But the car rentals are reserved, the hotel room the night before I fly home is booked. The room in West Hollywood has been booked for ages. Now I can map out my time in West Hollywood!

Like having dinner with a high school classmate that Sunday. And going to see a psychic at Bodhi Tree Bookstore. And checking out the Walk of Fame. And I don’t know what else. But don’t worry, I’ll figure it out.
