I'm drunk at 2:30PM and listening to Richard Buckner. Yes plz.

The only downside is that I'm on the last good beer and all that's left in the fridge is PBR and one stray Keystone Light that someone left here months ago.

I must have gotten REALLY, REALLY drunk last night, because there is a massive scratch on my arm, and I cannot for the life of me figure out where it came from. It hurts, too.

Some kid woke us up this morning. We were sleeping and we hear someone walk by the window and say something about a "Monte Carlo." Patrick spazzed, jumped right up and went to investigate, and by investigate, i mean he stood at the window and stared outside to watch them.
Eventually, the kid knocks on the door so I throw on my robe to go answer. It's some young kid, like...a freshman in highschool kid. And he says, "Umm...They hired me to...clean this house?"
I gently explain to him (as best as I can for being rudely awakened at the ungodly hour of 10:30AM) that he wants to be at the identical house on the east side of us.
He says, "They told me to clean the basement of the first one."
Well, suga, I understand why you would consider m my house the first one (since it's on the corner) but you most certainly are not going to clean my basement.
The kid gets really confused, starts looking at the keys in his hands, looks confused and says "I'm supposed to clean 54...?" Baby, you're even on the wrong fucking street. Leave me alone so I can go back to bed.
Pish Posh, and that's the start of my day. At least I'm up earlier, right? I'm making coffee and I'm going to make some breakfast soon.
I put on my Rocky Horror costume last night and the zipper got stuck. Like, REALLY stuck. Not 'cause I couldn't fit in it, but because it just got stuck. So we couldn't get it on or off. I got really pissed and just laid down in bed, with every intention of just falling asleep and dealing with it in the morning. Patrick eventually got it off and we eventually went to Rocky Horror and it was fun. But Amanda was supa emo because her "boyfriend" got there late and we got the last tickets. Fuck him, I don't like him anyway. And I REALLY don't like the fact that my sister started exclusively seeing him the same day she broke up with her girlfriend. Whatev.

I'm currently watching Good Eats and it's fucking amazing. I'm so in love with Alton Brown. Mmmm, Alton.

We went to the Brothers today with Cori, Steve, Brandon (from work), Jay, Luke and so on and so forth. We ran into Andy outside and headed over to Hotel Frank for a little bit. It was a good night. I'm tired and tipsy.
05-09-07 08:30
I got your text and that fucking sucks. Especially since I left you a very drunk voice mail at 4AM. No wonder you didn't wake up when I called.

If you can text me from Alltel, I'll reply here. And see if you can borrow someone's cell phone on your break, so we can discuss plans, alright?

Don't worry about anything, ok? I'll make your day fantastic, I swear. By the time I'm done with ya, you won't care about your phone.

I need to shower, but I'd much rather fall back asleep. I'm sleeeeeeeeepy. I tried the whole "waking up early" (10:30) and I'm all woozy and what not. Then again, Patrick was in top form last night. He woke me up about three times and kept me awake each time for a good long while. Something about the garbage. He was talking about the garbage. Taking it out and...somehow, he was able to make a huge, long conversation out of asking me if he should take the garbage out at 4AM. I think he decided he should. I'm not sure, though.

This supa hip lesbian that comes into CD a lot was walking her dog last night. She walked by while Patty and I were chilling on the porch, drinking some beers. She stopped, we offered her one, and we ended up chatting for over an hour. She was really a doll. Adorable, too. Super short and super dykey. I just wanted to squeeze. Not in a romantic way, in "OH, YOU CUTE DYKEY BABY!" way.

And I need to cut my toenails. They're getting icky. Blah Blah Blah, I really have nothing to say. But I'm still updating this damn thing because I luvs ya. I had every intention of cleaning the house last night, but I played Super Mario Kart instead. And won! HELLZYEAH! They even gave me two champagne bottles at the end.

I think I'm just going to sit here, write this and finish watching Dr. Keith instead of showering. This is the first time I've watched Dr. Keith in months, because it's on too early. I can't watch anything that comes on before 11AM. And now I'm totally regretting getting up at 10:30. It should not be this difficult to wake up at 10:30AM! Grr, grumble grumble. I'm not going to set my alarm tomorrow. You know why? 'Cause it's my day off. I don't even want to like...move. Just lay on the couch all day, reading Don DeLillo and watching ANTM.

Oh man, I totally just spaced out and read all about ANTM. For like, ten minutes. You have to space out to read about ANTM for ten minutes. I should go get ready. I'll try and write more if I get the chance.
04-27-07 09:32
Nine hours of sleep later and I'm still fucking tired. Maybe I'm hungover? No, I really didn't have that much to drink last night. Anyhoo.

Did I tell you that LD was getting hit on by an amazingly cute guy from Colombia? His name was Diego and if he hadn't been all about LD, I would have been totally head over heels for him. Too adorable. I'll have to take you sometime and order you a mojito. And we'll sip sangria and gossip and it'll be fantastic.

I really don't have much to say. I talked to you right before I went to bed last night and now I'm talking to you right after I woke up...I had a really weird dream that I'm not going to get into, but trust me, it was weird.

I have to start getting ready in three minutes, to go work with LD. Oh! Don't forget, Sunday is Nikki's birthday. I was thinking of bringing her pancakes before I go to work and then maybe making them dinner afterward? I don't know? Something along those lines? Something cheap but "meaningful."

I am fucking dehydrated. Maybe I am hungover? I have no desire for Subway, though. Weird, right? Andy was over last night and it was a lot of fun. I really do like hanging out with that kid. I told him about what Stefanie said about he & I being a cute couple and he laughed and said, "Shelly said the exact same thing!" And this made me laugh. We've got Nikki, Stef and Shelly all backing us. Hilarious, right?

Oh, crackle. It's time to start getting ready. I'll text you later. ILUANDRE!

I don't have a huge amount of time to ramble on in here. I've decided to try and clean the house before I go to work. Well, at least get SOME house cleaning done, since I never have time to do it when I'm off work. And I won't have time tonight, either. And tomorrow night, Jamma and I are moving your dressed and then I'll help you pick up a little bit? And maybe we can put a lamp on top of the dresser? y/n?
and then Saturday, I work a double shift, which will be my fourth in two weeks, Sunday I work, Monday I work and then hang out with you and then I THINK I get tuesday off. God, I hope I do. I'm getting worn out just saying all of that. I know I can get Becky to cover Monday, but then I won't get that shift. But then again, do I really NEED that shift? With it, my check will almost rival yours (almost, not quite) but uuugggggh, I'm tired.

Let's move on to something else before I start to clean. I realized today that I have a TON of like...product. Bath & Beauty stuff. Lotions, conditioners, shampoos, leave in conditioners, good smelly stuff AND OMG THERE'S A ROBOT OUTISDE OF MY HOUSE. Ok, nevermind, it was just some people who couldn't get their car alarm to work. But Patrick has been watching this show that's full of robots, big and mean ones, and you know how I feel about robots and I totally just had an Andria moment of sheer terror for something that's horribly silly. Ah, we are fantastic, yes?

We accidentally locked the cat out of the bedroom last night and OMG! He could not handle it. He woke us up by throwing his fat little furry body against the door. That poor, neglected, hungry cat. Never gets any attention. I think I'm going to try and snag Mark's other kitten and then just let Patrick deal with it. He's afraid the kitten will chew on everything, but he apparently has never had a kitten before. Kitten's have tiny, tiny mouths and really can't chew much up, nor have I EVER had a kitten chew anything up. And you KNOW we've had a lot of kittens in our time. What with the whole Timothy/Dustin/Lifesaver Full Mustache/Half Mustache discussion. Lolz.

Aight, I should clean. Call me on your break, aight? Now that you've got that super fancy battery, bb.
