my pseudo-college weekend

it's been all-too-long since i described my offline exploits. since i usually only remember to do this when i do something completely stupid and/or embarassing, you can guess where this post is going. also, since this is no longer linked directly from my personal site, i feel a little more free. anyway...

rewind to friday eveningy happy hour at arsenal with plans to go out for my friend's second birthday party in a row. (yeah, one of those types) 3 or 4 vodka/sodas into happy hour, one of my friends calls to see what's happening tonight--oh and he and his new girlfriend are no longer an item by the way. now i won't get too into the details of this as i like to keep the talk on this url pretty much centered on ME, but in any case, i do the decent thing and ditch my plans to go have drinks with my buddy. i end up getting drunk. like, really drunk. like 4 martinis more drunk. so drunk that i get sick.

saturday was a waste. i had some "work to do around the house" (euphemism that i will explain in a couple of weeks) and it was raining out, so no skateparking or anything like that. oh, did i neglect to mention how hung over i was? i was in pain the entire day. from the moment i woke up to the moment i went to sleep, i was in pain. head-to-toe pain. needless to say, i went to sleep as soon as i could to put my misery behind me.

sunday i wake up early. like way too early, since i had gone to bed so early the night before. 7:30am. too goddamn early, so i roll over and i think, well, maybe if i do some reading or something, i'll fall back asleep. so i pick up "the da vinci code" off my nightstand, and start up. ok, so usually i read smarter or more trendy fiction and stuff, but you know, a friend at work gave it to me, so whatever. anyway, it's 7:30am, i pick up the book and it's ok, i'm getting sucked in a little bit. next thing i know, the book is halfway done, next thing i know, there's 100 pages left. next thing i know, it's 2pm and i've read the whole damn book straight through. no bathroom breaks, no coffee breaks, nothing. i haven't even got out of bed yet. jesus. *shrug* i don't know. what can i say, they were right, it's a page-turner. the last time i read 450 pages straight, i had a midterm to take the next day.
