OMG it’s an update that *isn’t* a month since my last one! I know, I can’t believe it either ๐Ÿ˜‰
This weekend rocked.
First, Valentine’s Day was lovely. Erik sent me a really cute bouquet of flowers to work. Funny thing is, the flowers are meant to look like a margarita (white pretty something-flowers in a margarita glass with a yellow rose and a “slice of lime” with a straw, really beautiful actually!) and people kept coming over to ask if there really was alcohol in it. Ha! Also attached was a pretty balloon which floated high above my cube like a big red shiny love beacon (ok, yeah, reading that made even me nauseous!)
Saturday morning we woke up and tried to figure out what to do. I had about $350 worth of gift cards to blow, and Erik has his new super-fancy-big-time-grown-up job, so we decided to go to the north Georgia premium outlets. I got a *ton* of clothes for dirt cheap, including a really cute skirt, Coach shoes (had a gift card to there) and gorgeous suit that totally makes me feel like I belong in a country club bu
t it rocks and I love it. If I didn’t know he was straight, I’d really think Erik was gay considering how much fun he is to shop with ๐Ÿ˜›
Later that night we went to dinner then to a party at a friend’s house for a bit.
Sunday was great. Eugene and I had concocted a sneaky stealthy plan to get Erik and the Outback to Douglasville. We told him we were going to a Subaru meet. So we pull into this subdivision and up to a house and he’s all “uhh wtf?” and I’m like ‘Surprise!! You’re not going to a meet, you’re getting tint!’ for Valentine’s Day, since he’s wanted to tint that damn thing for 2+ years. Many thanks to Eugene for helping out with the plan.
While it was getting tinted we drove around a bit, got Dim Sum for lunch, etc… After, we went to dinner with Eugene, Shorts and Mikey P. in Marietta then back home. It stormed like crazy all day Sunday and there were tornado warnings and general chaos and, well, I’m definitely not used to living somewhere where tornadoes are a commonality. Although there was one in Lynbrook in ’98 and another in Brooklyn this year, but who’s counting? ๐Ÿ˜‰
Monday I had off from work so I hung around the house cleaning and getting this laptop up to par. Turns out I don’t hate it as much as I thought. It’s actually really nice. It’s very comfortable and I’ve tweaked the shit out of Vista so it’s not intolerable.
I’m getting used to it. It’s pink. Yeah, I’ll admit… I’m happy.
What else… The G should be “back to normal” soon. I finally got around to ordering tune up parts today (thanks to Justin at for the hookup, as always) so that I can finally get around to putting in the lifters I’ve had for over a year and hopefully make that damn ticking noise stop. I also ordered a new antenna to replace the one I accidentally crunched on Friday in the garage door and will call the insurance company about the windshield soon (stupid rock hit it on the freeway and since its been cold lately, I now have a 12″ crack in the middle… oof).
Okay, that’s it for now. Much love!
