So my weekend of nothingness is over. There was actually some stuff going on, but I did chill out a bit and procrastinate instead of doing stuff, so I think I feel good.
On Friday night, I went for sushi with my dear pal Mathew. The conversation randomly turned to how Mathew (who I consider like the brother that I never had) would test out any boy that I might bring to meet him.
First, he will drink out of dude's beverage. This actually stems from something that Becca T and I did when we met one of our friend's boyfriends for the first time. We were having dinner, and Becca T and I ordered diet pop (because we chose brain cancer over diabetes), and the other two ordered regular pop. Becca was convinced that hers wasn't diet, so she tasted mine to compare, and well, things progressed and basically Becca and I were drinking everyone's pop to solve the mystery. We eventually got to tasting everyone's drinks before someone had the good sense to ask the waitress to bring replacements. Then Becca T pointed out "ummm, this is the first time we're meeting boyfriend over here" and to which I responded "this *is* a pretty accurate representation of what we're like, so it's good he knows." Luckily, boyfriend was not offended and he got our stamp of approval. We're going to the wedding this summer.
Mathew retold the above story to me, which is hilarious 'cuz I'd forgotten about it and I was there, yet he remembered it and he wasn't. He has decided this is a good test of a new person because they should not freak out under these circumstances and take it in stride.
However, he thinks that something extreme should be done to test out that they have the cajones to get mad for the right reasons, and to see what they're like when they are angry. He's decided that pouring a drink over their head is the way to go there.
Maybe I shouldn't bring any boys home to meet Mathew ever.
So yah, that dinner conversation, among others, had me cracking up, hence Friday night gets a thumbs-up.
Saturday was super girlie day for me. In the morning, I got my eyebrows and nails done. Then I walked to Starbucks and got one of my fave things: a chocolate banana Vivanno smoothie. I walked home, had lunch and then a nap, and then went to get my haircut. My fabulous hair stylist broke it to me that he's leaving the city, so I'm a little bummed about that, but it's better to just appreciate the fact that my hair had two years of excellent cuts and move on. Guess next time I book, I'll just go to a random person at the same salon and see how it works out.
Today I enjoyed some good nothing time, but as I expected, some last minute social plans would come my way. One of my friends from university who lives in Switzerland is in town, so other friends threw a dinner party for her. It was a fun time, and a lot of catching up happened.
Well, now I'm facing a long week of work. I've got some stuff coming up this weekend to look forward to, and the week after next proves to be one of the busiest EVER. I'm talking concerts, visitors, dinners, springdowns (silliness with coworkers), p-t interviews, Earth Week events, and applications for work stuff due. At least I had a chill weekend going into it.
