So Friday came about like every other Friday. I had a short work week Becaue of my step dads Heart Attack. The girlfriend had came over Thursday night to cheer me up a bit and she took the ferry with me in the morning and I scored a ride to work. So it’s rather odd getting to work at 7:05 when I don’t need to be there until 8am. The work day progressed as natural.
I sent off an e-mail to junniper. Most of the stuff I send her is news I come across making fun of Oregon. Today’s e-mail was http://www.komotv.com/news/local/8355142.html
So Friday comes to an end and I call up Nick and I am like “Cause I’m Delta” which is a new saying. Girlfriend doesn’t seem to dig it so working on phasing it out again. So me and Nick make plans to go see Transformers. Now I must say I am not a big fan of the new theme song. But the Black Lab group did a version that is pretty awesome.
You can check their options for downloading the song or an HD version of the music video at: http://blacklabworld.com/blw/pages/transformers.html
I must say the movie is a great action romp through the Transformers World. I was never allowed to watch the cartoon when I was a child my Mother said it was a little violent for me. She wouldn’t let me see the Ghostbusters movie until I was 9. That movie is awesome it was one of the first DVD’s I purchased.
So get out of the movie around midnight. I recommend seeing it if you want some awesome robot action. We were sitting in the front row it was so crowded. I always find it interesting to need to tilt my head to see the entire picture at once.
So Saturday I slept until about 11am and kinda loafed around until about 1pm. I think we all need a Saturday morning like that. My step sister was in town from Canada to visit my stepdad. So I was looking forward to playing Uncle Tristan. Odd to think about that. I have 2 Nieces and 1 Nephew. Kysia, Keenan and Kathryn. I think my step sister had a theme going on there. 14, 11 and 9 respectfully. Being the guy that I am I am usually human jungle gym for the little ones and piggy back rides and throwing them around is usually what is involved.
So had dinner over there and then I went to Wal-Mart I needed a few more shirts for working out in and grabbed a new fitted sheet. 300 Thread Count is okay but not as nice as the 400 thread counts. I didn’t realize how nice sheets were until I upgraded.
So I pretty much hung around for a bit and waited for girlfriend to show up. I don’t recall exactly what I was doing in this time. The plan was to meet the friends for some drinks and then go bowling. But we all met up at the bar after I picked her up and we ended up just hanging out there listening to this pretty cool live acoustic cover band. They had some pretty good tunes. I liked this one they wrote about their ex girlfriends. The lyric the song focused around was.
“Why don’t you blow me……………….. a kiss”
Well timed hilarity is always perfect. I was trying to recall the band name give them some props but for some reason it is escaping me and the bar was closed I will assume since they did not answer their phone. So since bowling didn’t work out we just went back to my place and watched an episode of the Simpsons and went to bed.
Well woke up around 9am it was nice just to lounge in bed. Got up took a shower when I got out of the shower I came back to my room and I noticed a shirt hanging in my closet. It was not my shirt and I looked over at Raleigh and for some reason I like the idea that one of her shirts. Excuse me Tops was hanging in my closet. It was like she was comfortable and by this I was comfortable.
So I called the boys to see about Brunch. We were going to the Bayside Broiler but changed location to the Casino. It was a really good breakfast. So it was Me, Raleigh, Nick, Nick’s Dad (Mike), Justin and Garrett. So me and Raleigh finished eating and we left to go get me domesticated a bit. I was told I needed more absorbent towels.
So we make a voyage out to Ross. Now Ross isn’t a store I normally visit but hey I open to anything. I didn’t even know that had towels. So I hadn’t been shopping with a women in a long while. The whole trying things out was interesting I didn’t really know you could try out a towel. But I found the experience to be rather fun. So after some towels and a coffee mug purchase we ran up to Target. The towels we purchased were these green Tommy Hilfiger Towels. I didn’t know they made towels. I thought they made clothing that I really didn’t know much about. But hey Towels are Towels until now.
So Target we were running around looking at things being playful in the aisles. Picked up a new trash bin and some 50 cent stuff and a Swiffer Device. My kitchen floor had something spilled on it and I didn’t have a mop. Girlfriend recommended that I get the swiffer because it’s easier to just throw away a wet sheet instead of having to clean a mop. So we also checked on Towels looks like we scored at Ross. So while at Target the Girlfriend wanted to pick up some things so she didn’t need to take them across the ferry every time. That was cool in my book. So after Target for some reason I decided I needed some hand soap.
So we went to the Mall to scope out Bath and Body Works. Speak of the Devil they just sent me an e-mail saying I could save 10% off lip products. So probably the best scent I can recall from Bath and Body works is Country Apple. They don’t make it anymore other then in Soap. But that scent is like yeah. I remember when I was in Trigonometry in the 10th grade. My friend Brad was dating this girl name Alley or Ally. She was rubbing some on her hands. We were both like what is that scent? She handed us the bottle and we were sitting there sniffing it like Oh Baby!
So anyways I needed some soap and I picked up a bottle of Cucumber Melon. We got the default soap. The foaming kind and some moisture thing. Which all seemed cool to me 3 for $10. Then also grabbed some new bottle that was $1.
So we had all kinds of goodies went back to my place and we hung out and then I walked her down to the ferry. For some reason I feel accomplished carrying her heavy bag for her. Maybe that is some guy thing coded into me to lift stuff.
So all and all good weekend. Life is good and enjoying what I can. Lets hope for a smooth week. Have a Picnic/BBQ this weekend. Hopefully the week flows smoothly and life is good.
