The Long, Loooong Weekend

I’ll go right ahead and tell this, you guys… I’ll be going silent in this blog some time until next week. I’m going to immerse myself as I fall down that not-so-mythical-now rabbit hole. I took a leave from work for the rest of the week. And what will I be doing? A true lady never reveals her secrets, even if secrets sometimes come in the form of vodka and butterscotch flavored beer and good company — OOPS. Why did I let my fingers slide down the keyboard and do the talking? Nothing is sacred anymore.

But I’ll be back next week, definitely. In the meantime, I am leaving you with great reads about dating girls who write. Some of them you’ve probably read once before. I highly encourage that you read them again. Drink in the words. Let the scenarios painted with such clarity play in your mind while you read them.

The Continual Countless Ramblings

racing-towards-the-new

It has been a very busy weekend. WOW. Anyone else out there who gets tired around November just by thinking of all the occasions and events he / she has to go to come December? *nods head* Yeah, I knew I wasn’t alone on that one. AND anyone else out there who is also very excited about the things the holidays bring? You know, the surprises and non-surprises (and you still get surprised when they happen, anyway). *nods head* Yeah, I knew we’d get along well.

I. Courage is not just a cowardly dog. Not anymore.

Last Thursday, I found myself falling in line at a convenience store. I was dead set on buying a box of condoms as a gift for our Secret Santa.The theme was “naughty” and I have been running dry on any creative inspiration lately, so a box of condoms it is. (I promised myself I’ll make up for it next time.) So there I was, standing, apprehensive and extremely self-conscious. And when it was my turn, I chickened out. I glanced at the cashier, glanced at the stack of condoms piled on the other side of the counter, back at the cashier, then to the guy behind me, and back at the cashier again. After that, I could only give a wave of my hand, flustered and all courage dashed away in an instant. I hastily told the cashier no, I won’t be buying anything anymore. Then I stumbled got out of that convenience store. No doubt the cashier and the guy behind me thought, “Man, that’s one weird cookie.” Except I’m not a cookie. I think I’m more of a yogurt. (The mixed berries kind.) But then one can’t very well say, “Dude, that’s one weird yogurt.”

The News

It’s the loooong weekend this side of the world! Yay!! The weekend’s forecast hints of Smirnoff Mule, junk food, and lots of bonding with a friend I haven’t seen for what feels like forever. Another part of the weekend is all about reading, staying in the house, and sleeping in. And next workweek means only two days of me working. That means I get another loooong weekend after this weekend. *tee-hee!* And what will I be up to during the next long weekend? That’s a secret I’ll never tell. (Or so says Gossip Girl. *wink!*.)
