Missed An Awesome Party

Categories: Uncategorized

1156458_surferI missed one of my best friend’s bachelor parties last month because I had something for work that I just couldn’t get out of.  Fortunately my friend understood and was pretty cool about the whole thing.  After seeing pics and hearing about how it went, though, I’m super jealous.  They all went to California and did some partying and stuff like you would expect, but the main reason I’m jealous is because they went surfing!  Well, it would be more accurate to say they took a group surf lesson since I don’t think anyone there had ever been surfing before, but from the pics it looked really exciting.

I’ve always wanted to learn to surf.  But, you know, living in the middle of Texas it’s not like there are really man opportunities to do so.  There are plenty of rodeos and football games, but not much surfing.  In fact, after hearing about their experience in California, I started looking at various surf camps online to try and see if there was anything relatively close.  I figure now that all my friends have gone surfing, I might as well give it a try myself!

So the rest of the bachelor party was just spent doing the normal type of partying things.  A nice restaurant, some bars, etc.  Nothing crazy or anything.  It wasn’t like the movie the Hangover or anything (and if it was they would’ve told me!), which is a hilarious movie by the way.  Ed Helms’ character cracked me up.  I think he’s funny as Andy in The Office, too (although he hasn’t been on much this season), but I could related to his character a bit in the Hangover because he was with a woman that he didn’t really like and who didn’t really respect him, and throughout the movie he found the confidence to finally stand up to her and leave her.   Like he kept trying to be a good guy and treat her well but she didn’t appreciate him and basically just disrespected him all the time.  Poor guy.  But it had a happy ending, but I don’t want to give anymore spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.

They made a sequel but I haven’t seen it yet.  I’m kind of behind on my movie watching.  I’ll usually wait until they come on TV and then record them and watch them later.  Except sometimes I don’t watch them for a while and my recorder gets really full and I can’t record anything else.


I Even Ate A Mushroom

1388709_korean_mushroom_steamboatSo I’ve been busy today. I stayed at work until 6pm. Oh, let me clarify; that’s late for me. I usually leave at 5pm. So I was working on this new project all day that is kind of getting to be a pain in the butt because the scope of it keeps expanding and expanding . At first it was cool. Our boss was like “hey, we need you to do this thing” (I don’t really want to get into it here, so “thing” will have to suffice). So we do our research and stuff but our boss keep adding new stuff to it. It’s like, right when we think we have everything figured out, some new parameter gets added.


If they would just give us all the information we needed from the beginning we could be done by now. Instead, it’s like do this… oh, but you also have to keep this other thing in mind… oh, and this third thing… etc.

That’s actually like a metaphor for my job, except normally it’s on a smaller scale so it’s not that big of an issue.

Not the last week, though.

My time over the weekend was spent away from work, but I spent a few hours of it looking for an attorney in Sarasota because I got into a bit of trouble last weekend. But I don’t want to talk about that anymore. I will say, however, that I think the cost of getting an attorney to represent me will save me money in the long run. It’s still going to cost me, though. I guess I won’t have as many funds as usual for the next few months.

I did something I’ve never done before: I ate a mushroom, and it wasn’t totally gross. It seems like everyone loves mushrooms except for me. I don’t like the texture. I think they feel like rubber, and they taste like dirt. But I had some mushrooms with this chicken and pasta meal today and I could almost say I liked them. Maybe it was just because they were mixed in with everything that they didn’t taste so mushroomy. I don’t know. But I’d definitely try them again.

It’s really weird, too, because I loved mushrooms when I was a kid. I used to get them on pizza all the time. And then one day I just realized I didn’t like them. But maybe I’m starting to like them again, and that would be cool because I know they’re pretty healthy.
