A Somewhat Accomplished Weekend


And so the weekend inevitably rolls around to Monday. I hate Mondays.

On weekends I never get up at 5 plus in the morning unless I have to catch a plane or the house is on fire. I am just not built to be a morning person and the weekends are my time to revert to my natural state (waking up no earlier than 11 and to bed at 1 or 2 in the morning). Of course by the time Monday rolls around again that 5:40 alarm is just cruel and unusual punishment. Nobody wants to hear beeb-beeb-beeb 5 hours earlier than they would naturally get up or 3 hours earlier than they standardly get up. (Yes, damn Warcraft has me getting up around 8:30 or 9 am to play the usual Saturday morning gig. It’s like work!) My eating schedule gets thrown out of whack too so I’m always incredibly hungry mid Monday morning.

However, this Monday I felt somewhat accomplished for the first time in quite a while. On Friday, TheMan and I had plans to go over to the BadGardens to watch Smithee clips but LG was laid low by her nasty head cold and TheMan’s eye was acting up and giving him the crank. I still went over with marinated chicken in tow (I got a most excellent deal at K-Rogerts, BOGO chicken which came out to about $2.50 a pound) and we watched another giant snake movie: Komodo vs. Cobra. I also got a good deal of crocheting done while watching and this pleased me. The rejected blanket is getting to look more like a blanket and less like a table runner. Huzzah!

Are cobras aquatic? I don’t see why they couldn’t be since there are snakes that tootle about in the water (your boas and pythons and water moccasins – which tend to be rather skittish and don’t grow to great lengths and therefore do not get movies made about them) but I thought cobras came from relatively arid areas. I’m going to have to look that up.

Saturday was Warcraft day in the morning in which we did Warcrafty things. We tackled another heroic (Ramparts? Blood Furnace? The Crisper Drawer? I have no idea) and got to the first boss before our tank had to go. It was OK I suppose but I wasn’t feeling very heal-y which is bad when you are the party healer. I think we did some battlegrounds for the rest of the time. Baby needs new mittens! OH! I also took a nap, which was very relaxing. Mmmmm.

Then it was time for Stalker Patti’s Halloween party. Sadly, LunarGeography was still low and TheMan was fit to be tied and woogie with eyeball hate. I think he’s got a sty or an ingrown eyelash or something, it’s making him crazy. Badmovie and I did wander over with Halloween mummy-dogs in tow. I did not get a pic but I have another pack of dogs (BOGO DOGS!) to do up for Rob’s party and I’ll snap a pic then. They were very cute; all wrapped in their crescent roll strips and little tiny mustard dollop eyes looking out at the world. They also were pretty popular and went fast. We ate, drank and watched Office Space and had a very good time. Man, I’d forgotten how many awesome scenes there were in Office Space.
“You’ve been missing a lot of work, Peter.”
“I wouldn’t say that I was “missing” it Bob.”
Classic!

Sunday I played Warcraft all day in between doing chores and whatnot. Surprisingly, I got a hella lot of stuff done. I made the BEST Northern Bean Soup (recipe to appear tomorrow because DANG I can cook yo!), cooked up some biscuits, did some dishes, did a chunk o’ laundry, wrote up a JSFR and got my pally some new mittens. I scored on every front, whoot! I also noticed that I’m down to three things of stock in the freezer. OH NOES! But! I have one last turkey in there and a whole mess o’ carcasses. Looks like I’m going to be posting the stock instructions quite soon. The only thing I did not get to was more crocheting which…whatevs. I did quite a good chunk of blanket on Friday and now I’m current(ish) on the JSFRs.

Thus, we get to Monday where I’m feeling…quite good actually. Novel.

2007: JSFR: Bourbon Petit Series Chip (teriyakimayonnaise)

2006: “Little Kitty, you alright?” PA-CHOOOOOOOO! “Awww Little Kitty yuck! It’s too early in the morning to deal with cat snot!!”

2005: In the middle of bite hand, he wigged completely out and launched himself into the top of my pants and then kept on going right down a pant leg.

2004: I asked DQ whether she knew what the voltage to her house was and how many cycles it had or if I needed to call her Electric Light Company to get the information.

2003: Parshallville. Hee. I love that name, like the place isn’t big enough to be a real ville.
