And So to Bed
Couldn't sleep, hence the earlier posting. A quick encapsulation:
Happy Birthday, Marco! Actually it was yesterday, but we're having a joint birthday/housewarming party tonight. We went out for Thai at Royal Orchid, where we all had spring rolls and various curry dishes, washed down with bottles of Tsing Tao. Did you know that Jake's offers a free scoop on your birthday? We made sure that Mark took advantage, then got our own scoops of strawberry cheesecake (with actual cheesecake) and Chocolate Slap-Yo-Mama(TM).
Have been to Marietta twice in one day, though I did not live my life in one day nor speed my time away. The First Trip: Helped Mark out at his dad's estate sale - said dad and wife are moving to FLAHrida and needed to unload stuff. I set aside stuff to buy, just little things, like some makeup bags and a picture frame, but they wouldn't let me pay. And then his stepmom slipped me a $20 through Mark, and it was too late to give it back. I suppose this means I have gotten my first job, albeit unexpected and completely temporary.
The Second Trip: I met up with one of my sisters at her office in Midtown, then we drove up to her apartment in Kennesaw(!) to walk her dog, then go to Costco, one of those big warehouse shops. Sometimes bulk buying is too much - I had planned on buying soda, but I don't need 4 two-liter bottles of Coke at one time. So now I still have to go to the supermarket for some last minute things.
I can't wait for my sister's dog to get fixed - maybe he'll quit spazzing out everytime he sees me and alternately lunge up at me/hump my leg. Bulldog slobber is really unappealing.
Gee, I guess I should actually clean up the house today. But I'm going back to bed first.
P.S. I'm really loving No Doubt's cover of Talk Talk's "It's My Life." Says Gwen Stefani: ""It turned out so good. I'm so excited about it. It's just insane." Me too, I'm totally psyched. Gotta get a copy of both versions.
