I just got back from having a really great friggin’ time. I haven’t laughed that hard in a LONG time.
Rick and Brooke are in town for unfortuante circumstances, due to a death in the family. :(
I had to cover a basketball game tonight, which was a complete blowout and only got to write 13 inches about it. I did get to hear the coach say “We need Patae to stroke it more”, which was amusing. Go, Patae, go. Our new fulltime sportswriter showed up today, but did I get introduced to him? Of course not. Makes me mad, but I guess there isn’t a lot I can do about it, huh?
Anyway, I got together with Rick, Brooke, and Derek after I was finished writing my article. We opted to head to the bowling alley, and then Angie and Justin joined us after their previous engagement had concluded for the evening. Normally, the “lounge” at the local bowling alley is packed full of people, it’s hard pressed to get a chair, and you feel like you’ve been thrown in a tank where you can catch lung cancer just by inhaling ever-so-slightly. Tonight, it was a different story. Our group of six made up probably 1/3 of the people in the joint. It did make for an interesting evening however! Pictures are on their way. :)
My TV has been stuck on VH1 ALL DAY LONG. Is it because I’m too lazy to change the channel? No, because I do actually know where my remote is this time. Now, I’m watching a VH1 original movie called “A Diva’s Christmas Carol”, starring Vanessa Williams… and some people I don’t know. In all truth, I’ve seen it before. Heh.
Let’s see. I’m downloading AOL Instant Messenger. Looking at my room thinking I should probably clean it. Trying to find my Sims House Party CD. Paying bills. Emailing TWA about their lack of concern about my safety on my flight to and from Minneapolis last week. Still in my pajamas. And drinking a Pepsi. What a busy day. I love it.
So, I was going to go to the lovely Christmas parade today, but I didn’t feel like it really, I don’t think. I woke up around 9:00, and while I could have made the 10:00 a.m. parade start time, I started to think – it’s Saturday. I don’t want to make a public apperance anywhere unless I have to. ;) And I *do* have to make an appearance tonight at the State Fair Community College men’s basketball game at 7:00. Yahoo for that.
And what I’m doing right now is working on adding some pictures to my website, and watching VH1′s Pop Up addition of the Viewers Choice Awards.
Oceans 11 comes out next weekend. I’m going to see that. And Vanilla Sky comes out the weekend after that. I’m going to see that, too. And I can’t forget about the ton of movies that are playing in town I want to see. Smacky and I are probably gonna get together for a movie sometime this weekend. I think Derek is going to join us, too, so that’ll probably mean we go sometime tomorrow. Derek’s working today, and I’m working tonight. Yay for work, though.
I might hook up the ol’ scanner today. Thought it might be fun to scan some old pictures and scatter them about the site.
What’s everyone else got planned for today?
