I haven’t done an update from my weekend in a while, so I’ll take this opportunity to do so. I took Friday and Tuesday off of work so with those days plus the holiday I was able to get 5 days off, woot.
I had my first fantasy football draft thursday night, and I I guess I did ok. I’m kinda second guessing my picks but I guess we’ll see what happens as the year goes on. I got home at a decent hour, but ended up staying late and sleeping in on Friday. We got our bathtub liner installed so we got on this home improvement kick going, and we ended up buying a bunch of crap from Home Depot, light fixtures, paint, a lock for our front door and a few other things I’m sure. I neded up installing a couple fixtures on Friday night and stayed up late again.
Saturday we went out to the cottage and I was drunk by 3pm or so on shitty beer. I don’t really remember much from the day besides sweating on the couch falling asleep. It wasn’t my finest moment, and I ended up talking about work which I never do when I’m not at work. I guess I was wasted so I had a bit of an excuse.
Sunday I painted the ceiling in our bathroom and afterwards we went and had dinner at my parents house. I cooked out on the grill, and we didn’t end up playing any uno, so that was a little disappointing.
Monday I did some shit that I can’t remember during the day and that night I had my other fantasy football draft. I feel like I have a better team than my team I drafted on Thursday. Again, I’ll have to see how that goes. Tuesday I ended up just chilling out by myself, and today I went back to work, yay! I kind of wish I would have taken the rest of the week off, but I guess I can do something constructive and save my vacation time.
Over this labor day weekend, John McCain announced his vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. When I first heard about it, I felt like he was kind of desperate and picked her just to try to say “hey, I can pick a woman runningmate, even if Obama can’t!”. I guess I can see the strategy of trying to pick up votes from the Hillary camp, but it seems like McCain doesn’t really know anything about her and picked her solely on the strategy. I’m not saying that I’m against having a female in office, but just like a male, I would be happier if it was the right one. Now all this news comes out about Palin’s daughter being 17 and pregnant, that Palin was part of a party with the idea of succeeding from the rest of the country, etc, etc, etc. How much did McCain really know about her? I don’t know, I don’t really want to give my opinion because I try to stay out of political debates on my little journal here. I’d rather keep that discussion between my close friends who I don’t feel like an idiot when I talk to.
anyhow, I’ve been slacking on my gym goings for the holiday, but today I got back on track. It’s tough to get up early in the morning when you know that you don’t have anything else going on like work. I’m supposed to go to Dave’s to watch the opening NFL game tomorrow, but if that wasn’t going on, I’d probably be going to the Dunny Series 5 trading party at Lift.[audio:Crystal_Castles_-_Courtship_Dating.mp3]
I’ve also got my eyes on Crappy Cat. AND… I have to find out what kind of spray paints work on vinyl – I have an idea…
