So let’s talk about the weekend. Friday was good for a few beers and then went to class. (Ummm, Yeah Forget the Beer I said nothing). But anyways I graduate after the summer quarter and Friday is this class called Portfolio Development. Basically it’s a class in how to prepare you for the business world. Writing a Resume and so forth. So far it’s basically been getting to know yourself and what type of personality you are. Well I learned that a long while ago and have a resume and all that fun stuff. So basically it’s a waste of time and I crack jokes and so far seem to be on everyone’s good side.
So I make some phone calls after class and have a nice talk with a friend of mine that I haven’t seen in a while. Always good for those. I have changed my voicemail style when I call someone I just don’t the normal hey what’s up. I just show some positive vibe and just try to make them memorable. It’s increased my call back ratio at least 10x. Good Times.
So Friday Night seemed a bit too late to do anything so I just checked some e-mail and then crashed to some Red Dwarf Season 3 DVD. Got up tried to find a breakfast partner which turned out to be nil. So went by myself and went to hang at the local coffee digs and absorb some people watching time while watching the World Cup and enjoying some high quality drip coffee. I really don’t care about sports but for some reason the World Cup has been an interesting watch and I have really enjoyed it and found myself getting live updates while at work. So the rest of Saturday I just spent watching World Cup until 4pm I believe and then went over to my Aunt’s house for dinner and had a nice steak with my Grandpa and had my first Martini. Shaken Not Stirred.
My family is always trying to help me and I really appreciate it. Lately there focus has been on the conquest of asking me about a girlfriend. “How come you don’t have hundreds of women after you?” or “Will I ever see grand children” it’s not like I don’t date but I just think the girls that I surround myself with are just not into me in that way. I probably don’t do the greatest job of expressing my intentions to them. Basically I think that well they are friends and if they stay that way well then I am not really at a loss. But that thinking needs to change. Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained and I need to take more of a risk. When I take the risks and just be honest I either get told to “Fuck Off” (Cough Last Sunday Cough) or get a funny story about condoms. (Guilty Smile).
So after a phone call from Jon wanted to know if I would come out to sing some Karaoke (spelling?) with him and I was like why the hell not. So I busted out the trusty cell phone and started dialing everyone in the 21+ group. I left a lot of voicemails. The only person that showed up was Craig. Have to love Craig cool dude didn’t really hang out with him much in Junior and High School but now it’s pretty frequent. So we are at the palace of the Sian having some rice and General Tso’s and singing some tunes. My song list was.
Rolling Stones – Jump and Jack Flash
Weird Al – Amish Paradise
and a 3rd if I recall.
I was rather disappointed in the beer selection having only Miller, Bud Light and Coors. So I had some Miller I can’t say that I enjoy it much. Way to light for me and I like amber or a darker beer. A microbrew is always good. (mmmm Mac and Jack) not much of a Hard A person. A nice cold beer is always good. So that was fun got to meet some cool new people and a girl there caught my eye but she was a bit of an outsider Jon said she was single I was like alright well umm yeah. Some reason I just kinda didn’t really see anything happening. Also I need to “Choke Up” on the Mic a bit more according to Jon. I wasn’t heard to well. I should really think about doing some Frank Sinatra anyways.
So Sunday rolls around after being at the bar until 2am I roll out of bed at 8am. Get in the shower go meet up with the parents and get ready to my step dads family reunion in Auburn I didn’t want to drive so I hitched a ride with them. We met up with my step sister and her youngest daughter who would be my niece wants to ride with us so I got the company of an 8 year old girl in the backseat. Now little kids always seem to want to do everything with me. So made the long drive pass by much faster and full of laughs. I forgot the delights of the iSpy game and Alphabet Road Signs (lol). Rest stops involved piggy back rides and all that fun stuff. But when we get there it was like walking into a room of a family that was very separate and kind of odd. But it was good time no booze but plenty of lemonade and hot tea.
So all the kids at this joint wanted to just climb all over me. I think the presence of someone who is 6′3′’ and could handle like 7 kids before being taken down is just a magnet for kids saying “This guy is fun” so that was a good time in the billion degree heat. So we leave after a while and I call the Teresa as you may know her as the “Rock Climbing Chic” and invite her out to Nick’s Band Practice and to a shocker she actually comes out. I was like WoW a female in Kitsap wants to do something lol. But anyways go have a beer chill out with some BBQ and good tunes + earplugs.
That always wraps up at 10pm for noise issues. Then I drop her off and I head home to bed. To wake up drive to work and write this =).
