LAME

I wish I could give you a delightful recap of my weekend. I will try: Friday evening was ten shades of awesome, as I spent it at Jennifer's house. I tried to smuggle out Squirmy Dog and YL (who is also squirmy), but that didn't turn out so well. I did manage to leave with a copy of "Icebergs" by one TLB, so that was cool. We had a lovely time hanging out, chatting and being snarky. I think Jennifer only hit me two or three times with throw pillows, and I know Grizzled nearly spit beer twice. (He's catching on to me). Saturday was guitar class/graduation. VonParents came to see me graduate (aka play on the big stage). We played "Hide your love away". Not my first choice, but I was actually happy with how we did. Ok, with how I did. VonDad did say that I'm getting better. No discussion as to the ownership of his guitar (that I've had in my possesion for over a year now), but that will come in due time I guess. After graduation, I had lunch with VonParents at DBAG, my favorite Bar and Grille. Both our server and bartender are friends of mine, so it was a great experience for my parents. They really like it there, and they don't eat out that much, so I was happy they had a nice time. Post lunch I had to go to a wake. Thankfully as I was getting out of my car I ran into my OTSFM co-worker. We headed in together. My friend/boss (who's father's wake it was) cried because I had shown up. That made me tear up a little. I'm a sucker for tears. Spent some time there, then finally headed home. It was a loooonnnngggg day for me. Cancelled my Saturday night plans, and had zero plans on Sunday. I blame winter and h1n1. I have zero interest in leaving the house until a) It's not snowing b) There's no chance it's going to snow or icestorm c) I don't have to wear 18 layers of clothes. Sorry, but I'm a winter wimp, and I've had enough. My couch/books/ds are all the company I need until spring. Though, I'm having a huge hankering for some Olive Garden. That I would leave the house for in a blizzard. Did watch the Oscar's, kinda. I wasn't really interested, so I had it on while I read the latest book club book. Went to bed early, had to get up for work today. Why, yes, I am a wet noodle lately. Thanks for noticing.

I'm glad the graduation and lunch went well.

Thanks again for hauling your ass out to our craziness.

As for winter... I think we're all finished, but of course, that doesn't mean it's finished, as I saw this morning, when I had to chisel my way into my vehicle.

I bet we'll get snow in March down here, we usually do. Would that mean Chicago always does?

Von said...

Oh, yep, snow in March is very common.
sigh.

Jennifer said...

An April snow is also fairly normal, but at least it doesn't last long.

Von said...

I thought maybe you slipped on the ice, and didn't bother telling a zombie....

Von said...

THANKZ THUNDER!!
Jennifer, I hit you with a decorative pillow....

Kathleen said...

wow if that is being lame, you don't even want to hear about my weekend!

But you have made me COMPLETELY crave Olive Garden. perhaps b/c I just worked out hard and am starving. WANT BOTTOMLESS PASTA BOWL. GET IN MAH BELLY

Mendacious D said...

Von is the polar opposite of lameness. This is SCIENCE.

Also, I really can't blame her for wanting to smuggle out one of the lamblets, and at least one dog.

Another Kiwi said...

Good god, the winter you guys have would kill me dead.
NOT LAME

I've never eaten in an Olive Garden. I think that the ghost of my grandfather would kick my ass if I ever did.

OTSFM?

Other than some effin' moron?

mikey said...

I leave the house.

Sometimes.

Reluctantly.

Make that EXTREMELY reluctantly.

Why? Exactly what will I see that is somehow new or different? In the meantime, the house has food, booze, blankets, books, computers, teevee, movies, magazines, pillows, all manner of stuff.

And yeah. Spring's coming. And now I've got a pool, a hot tub and a barbeque. Imma gonna stay right here as much as I can...

Von said...

Mikey -
That's it. I'm coming there.
Make me dinner, and serve it to me by the pool.

mikey said...

I'm going to get a slideshow of the new place put together in the next couple of days or weeks or hours or other purely arbitrary methods of measuring entropy. In it you'll see that where you'll be eating that dinner is a lovely deck area behind the hot tub covered by a trellis with picnic tables and a very nice gas grille. Although I've never used a grille except a bunch of decades ago when I had a hibachi and loved to cook butterflied fresh shrimp in herbs and butter and made everything else you can think of into kabobs...
