To those of you out there who are geologically at risk for hurricane conditions, be safe. And, you, Portland who had an earthquake – I hope y’all are ok!
Now that I got my announcements out of the way I will bore you will my drivel of a life (and, hopefully take your mind off of threatening storm events for like, 15 minutes). So, lets have some updates, shall we?
First, I don’t think I’ve spoken of Emil for awhile. Not sure if she’s
pulled her head out of her @ss to read any of the posts on here but if she does, well hey, at least I’m thinking of you. I called her last Friday to chat and catch up. I know her mom is not doing well and she’s had some challenges that don’t include her new gf Kan-Dice. I invited her over for dinner that following Sunday because I thought it would be a good time to catch up with her. Well, she showed up on Sunday, toking on her vape and saying some crazy little phrase for the current strain she was inhaling. (Reminds me of the old XTC days when they were named VW, Superman, Stars, etc. Don’t ASK me how I know that) We were visiting and she said, Oh hey, Kandice said if we can wait until 6 to eat then she’ll drive down.
Like, what was I supposed to say, No, you can’t invite your gf to dinner?
I didn’t mind if she came but it does change the DYNAMIC. We had dinner and then Emil brings out this game called Banana sack or some such. You know how I hate to play games after dinner. I just want to curl up in bed and watch Mindhunter or something. Not play some GAME. So, you had to spell out words like a crossword puzzle and the first person to use all their letters wins. So, it was like Emil spreading out tiles upside down and saying, GO! And, everyone picking up tiles and trying to spell some word like INANE or something. Charlie and I were kind of like, blank, staring at our letters. Finally, Emil says, Here, let me help and starts moving Charlie’s letters around and spelling words for her. I was reminded of the time she tried to teach me a few chords on guitar and it turned out to be, Just do this, and that, and put your fingers HERE, NO NOT THAT. I mean, Emil is not the most patient teacher.
Kan-Dice piped in for the 45th time, She’s really good at this.
After three rounds of E & K winning we gave up. I mean, two bottles of wine in, can you blame us for our brains being foggy and not being able to spell out words in 35.6 seconds? The whole thing was annoying and I swear if she takes out that banana sack ever again I’m going to wrap it around her neck.
Last night, we had Benji over for yappy-hour since Charlie went over and got her dog, Squid, mid-day for a play date with Sadie and Bailey. To our great relief, Benji finally dumped the ice queen who wouldn’t even pet her dog let alone stay at her place. We grilled her with, No more gf’s who aren’t dog lovers, and many more things. We shared a pizza and watched Mindhunter and part of the Wisconsin game. (SO nice to watch football again)
Tonight, we’re having our friends Becky and Shelia and a couple I used to teach classes with over for a crab boil. Neither couple has met each other so I think they will get along like a house on fire. I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for awhile since I’ve had no time off since last April. I even skipped classes this past week because I just want to be off.
Sunday and Monday both I’m paddling with the couple from above and then doing whatever the hell I want. I’m hoping to take the dogs to a brewery since we’ve started to feel a little snap in the air from lower humidity. Yes, I’m ready for it.
Ok, time to go prep for the party tonight. Be safe this weekend, y’all! Cheers!
