This Open Thread is full of Weekend

Boy howdy, this was a week for the books. Let’s all unwind in this open thread, shall we?

And just because, here’s another kitten picture.

Currently LOL-ing at the MarkReads post about The Hobbit:

“ Look, the goblins MAKE UP A SONG ON THE SPOT ABOUT ROASTING OUR HEROES ALIVE WHILE THEY ARE STUCK IN A TREE. This is nightmare fuel!!! The very definition of it! Could you imagine facing death and your adversary creates a well-rhyming, improvised song on the spot? It would be so unsettling that you would BEG FOR A SWIFT DEATH.”

I die.

Also mildly freaking out about starting NaNoWriMo tomorrow!

After three meetings related to jobs last week, this week was full of a lack of phone calls, Ben and Jerry’s, and lack of motivation. Then last night I got all unladybugged-up to go out, including false eyelashes and weird cold volumizing powder in my hair, and started inexplicably dry heaving in the car on our way to meet our friends. I was trying to soldier up still, so we met our friends, and then my boyfriend ate some guac and mentioned, very close to my face, that I was not looking better, and I just about passed out from the nausea. So we went home. My stomach still feels questionable but I’m trying to eat some Special to settle it. Oh, and I have to pack because I am moving home with my parents next week, and this was making me really sad, but then I saw how stressed and anxious my mom is with some drama going on that I feel like that’s where I really need to be. It’s extremely temporary, and it’s in the same town and all, so it isn’t a big deal, but still. I am really going to miss my own place. Like, A LOT.

A week for the books for sure. We just got a ridiculous amount of snow, lost power for hours, and my car is doing some weird…shaking thing that is related to a misfiring cylinder. But of course nowhere is open. Digging out my parents’ driveway was fun!

I am hoping, hoping the rest of the weekend is a little quieter.

Popping into this thread about where I’m eating dinner tonight:

CHECK OUT DAT MENU. What would you order?? I’m gonna have the Grazing Hippy with a portobello cap and sub out the goat cheese for havarti, side of 1/2 order fries, and a motherfucking pumpkin beer because I’ve never had one! Hooray!

After that it’s off to a friend’s suit-up-themed birthday party, whereupon I plan to drink an entire bottle of wine. Ahhhh exciting! Just have to get through the next hour and a half of work…
