I love the nightlife

I love the nightlife
The worries about non-blog-able things have ceased for now. I drove home with a bubbly feeling I hadn’t had in a while. This is the weekend! Or “Bon weekend” as we say here at Chez LadyGypsy. It’s Friday night! My afternoon strategy was to sleep until dinnertime. We were going to go to Chez Elena Wu this evening. David was awake when I got home, meaning he didn’t sleep yet. So I sink into our recliner, known throughout the apartment for its uncanny ability to sap every ounce of alertness out of whoever sits there. Well, first I got changed and grabbed my pillow and Kronk, the bear.

Yes. I am almost 31 and I still need to cuddle a stuffed thing to sleep. At least I don’t do drugs, OK?

There is something decadent about sleeping on a summer afternoon. The shadows elongate across the room as the sun sets. The lighting changes. It’s gorgeous. I slept peacefully for about 4 hours, my bliss peppered by dreams of swirling colors. And dancing. And laughter. And I experienced the sweet joy of waking on my own, without an alarm. So now I’m awake, David’s asleep, cats are asleep and Chez Elena Wu never happened.

I broke down and rented a movie from Comcast On Demand. I’d LOVE to browse through the listings and find a good, old movie that I’ve never seen. Like “On the Town.” Or “Singin’ in the Rain.” But no. So I settle for Adaptation, which has characters whinier than all of my blog entries combined, PLUS all of the blogs of the “I hate my parents/school” teens out there. And now I just witnessed Nicholas Cage’s character fantasizing about intercourse with Meryl Streep’s character. Zap! Off goes the movie.

What now? Well, I’ll head to Wawa for a sandwich and hop into Asheron’s Call in about an hour, when most of my west-coast guild start to play. And you know what? It’s been a great Friday! :)

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

Geez. This time last week I was excited over heading to WDW. Today I’m happy because I’m switching hosting companies for LadyGypsy.net. BlueDomino continues to ignore my emails about my broken web stats. And now for $1 a month LESS, I can get 500 megs of storage instead of 50, and 20 Gigs of transfer instead of 2. Plus Lunarpages called me within 15 minutes of my signing up to confirm. Hasta la Vista, Blue Domino! My Lunarpages account is ready to go. Sunday night I’ll upload everything to there, and request to have my DNS address changed. It should all be seamless on the front end. I hope.

Wt: 139.0
Mood: Worried about non-blog-able things
Work docket. Yippie-ki-yo-ki-yay! The Community Guide is up! Isn’t it sharp? All I have to do now is get the database up next week, and all will be hunky-dory. Do some Hot Properties today, touch up a banner. Maybe work with ShopSite.
Lunch plans: Unknown
Afternoon: Unknown
Evening: Ummmm..unknown?
Weekend: Unknown! There’s a Gaerlan quest leaving at 10pm tomorrow night in Asheron’s Call. May or may not go. There’s a Bobo quest Sunday at 8pm. I’d like to go on that one.

Looks like a boring weekend, but uncertainty leads to flexibility.

And now, because my ads seem to be stuck again, here is the Friday Five!

1. What’s the last place you traveled to, outside your own home state/country?
Walt Disney World, last weekend!

2. What’s the most bizarre/unusual thing that’s ever happened to you while traveling?
Broke out with chicken pox when I was at Walt Disney World at age 15. That sucked bigtime.

3. If you could take off to anywhere, money and time being no object, where would you go?
I’d like to drive cross-country and see sights along the way.

4. Do you prefer traveling by plane, train or car?
Airplane, airplane, airplane! Which doesn’t jibe with question 3 at all, but I’d sooooooooooo much rather get places in a short amount of time.

5. What’s the next place on your list to visit?
The ladies room. Ha! Seriously, I’m headed to San Francisco and then Disneyland in a few weeks.

Testify! (written in advance because I’m not dumb enough to do this much at work)

(the church organ swells as Kim walks down the center aisle and stands at the pulpit)

My brothers and sisters, I have sinned. (murmurs from the congregation) The past few days…I have fallen. And fallen HARD upon the jagged rocks of crappy junk food. (gasps from the congregation) I have had burgers, fries, Taco Bell — “

(a woman in the audience shrieks, “Not Taco Bell?!?” and prompty passes out.)

“…yeah, ok. Taco Bell, and Mountain Dew. And pizza for lunch. And cupcakes for breakfast. It hasn’t been pretty. No it has not. But I have SEEN the light!”

(tamborines shake, crowd hoots in approval)

“Last night, my brothers and sisters, I lay writhing on the sofa…my very stomach crying out from fighting the evils of grease and mystery-meat. It was crying, crying for sal-va-tion!!!”

(organ swells)

“And I have seen the LIGHT! I have LEARNED that exhorbitant amounts of junk food will make me feel BAD!”

(crowd: how bad?)

“Bad as Gary Coleman running for Governor of California Bad!!”

(another woman passes out)

But I have been SAVED! For once I realized that continuous eating of junk food makes me feel BAD, my stomach stood up and began to fight harder. And I know the power of healthy eating will set me FREE!!

(crowd hoots and dances with snakes)

My brothers and sisters…don’t stumble down the path I travelled last night. For Salvation does NOT come from a pink bottle of Pepto-Bismol…but from the knowledge that good foods won’t cause you Pain!!! Testify!

(congregants and Kim dance in the aisles as the chorus and organ burst out in happy hymns)

OK. It wasn’t THAT bad. But it bad enough that I skipped yoga.

Wt: 138.8. A totally undeserved weight loss
Mood: Perky, despite worries that are non-blog-able. Yes I do hold some back. :)
Work docket: Did communities. Will do Scrapbook, and hopefully launch Community Guide content today.
Lunch plans: Salad.
Afternoon: Uncertain
Evening: Will meet Mom for dinner somewhere and perhaps hit Old Navy.

Tomorrow I shall resume my healthy-eating plan. Honest. I’ve gone totally off the wagon with crappy (yet delicious) food and I want more.

Wt: Didn’t weigh.
Work docket: Online mall; COMMUNITY GUIDE, aka the project that will not go away.
Lunch plans: Who knows…maybe Taco Bell.
Afternoon: Will attempt to limit afternoon nap to 1 or 2 hours.
Evening: Yoga @ 7:30.

Dierdre the Pain hit level 85 last night. I think I’m going to take an evening off from Asheron’s Call, because I’ve played a lot of it over the past few nights. Ooo…wait. I promised one of my vassals that I’d make some oils for him. OK. I’ll make the oils, then get offline. I’m also going to cancel my account with Star Wars Galaxies. I’m just not thrilled with it when I play it. AC was difficult too when I started, but I had fun with it even when I was raging that I couldn’t do anything correctly. Life’s too short for a tedious game.
