THE DAY

you're all just waiting on the edge of your seat to hear how it went on friday, aren't you. yeah. you are.

here's a little teaser for you: I woke up on friday morning, almost giddy to all the possibilities of the day before me, and found that I had gotten my period.

yes.

it was going to be THAT kind of day.

I am not going to bore you with all the details. suffice it to say that I did get my hair dyed, thank god. and I did go shopping and get a couple of things for myself from gap's incredible sale. and I did use up a $50 gift card to H&M.

the highlight of my day, which is really the only other thing besides what I already said, is that I took a 20 minute nap. of course, it was peppered with pokings from trent asking me if he could have cookies, or if he could watch a movie, or whatever - I mostly mumbled "YES, NOW GO AWAY" so I very well could have allowed him to throw knives and watch porn and I wouldn't have cared.

at 4:30, I woke up from my nap, and that, my friends, was that. hair dye, 4 shirts, 1 skirt, a nap, and a whole bunch of tampons. not exactly the stellar day I had envisioned.

I did get to have a wonderful night, though, at jen's house, playing trivial pursuit pop culture edition. I dragged trent and bella with me and we all had a wonderful time. of course, bella can't bear to go to bed when we go out, so she was up until midnight. but having trent with me was helpful, as were nicole and mark. we had fun, kicked ass, and took names.

the rest of the weekend - tiring. hot. and filled with baseball. I'm glad it's monday, and I'm glad that sean comes home from atlanta today. though he just called me from the road (from wawa - I talked to him as he walked from the atm to the bathroom to the urinal to the sink and back to the register - drips, flushes and all) and he's below richmond, VA right now and still hopes to be back in PA by 7pm, which is, how you say, impossible? I guess anything is possible though, as my period decided to come on a day that I was trying really hard to be carefree - get it? Carefree? I was going to say something about Playing Tex. maybe Tamming Pax. oh, man. I think I need some sugar.

anyway, one other thing about the weekend - I got 2 really great things. one was a set of (sort of expensive, but I rationalized it by saying that it was what I really wanted, and instead of getting something I didn't really want, and then replacing it later with something else that I didn't want, and then finally giving in and getting what I really want, I saved time and money) porch rocking chairs. sean doesn't know yet and I hope it's a pleasant surprise when he gets home. the other was a mysterious package sent to me by theresa, which contained a weird powdery substance. just kidding, it contained an adorable dress for bella, and she wore it to jen's on friday. thank you, theresa!!

I still want to get a massage and facial. I think I deserve it for living through this weekend, don't you?

The day sounds like a success to me. Except for your period. For that you do indeed deserve a full body massage and an extravagant champagne and caviar facial. Yes. People do massage fish eggs into their faces.

Can't wait to see your rocking chairs.

uhm, you got to go shopping and have a nap. sounds good to me! Not to mention you woke up giddy, which is an achievement in and of itself.

Just below Richmond? They where a rocks throw away from me!

Sounds like a good day other then AUnt Flow.. gah.. I hate her.

Gross, a caviar facial? Seriously?

I'm glad you got to have your own agenda for the day, even if included many tampons. My wish for you is another one, very soon, without cramps etc., and with a big wad of cash for shopping. The chairs sound great.

You're welcome! It looks great on her, though I fear she may grow out of it, oh, say... tomorrow?

Speaking of looking great, your hair is fabulous. I'm jealous of your ability to rock "cool" reds. And I mean both cool as opposed to warm and cool as opposed to lame.

This has nothing to do with anything, but I just wanted to let you all know that the long-awaited Biker Fox 2005 photo shoot is now up

Biker Fox is the stunt guru of the world, fyi.
