What better way to get the blog post writing juices flowing than a linkup that you’ve never participated in before but keep watching from the sidelines (hat tip to Kimberly for this one). I have seriously been cross-eyed and drooling all day trying to think of a topic… Link up to the rescue!
My weekend kicked off at 5:30pm with office cocktails. The company that my company shares an office with throws a monthly cocktail party in the office, and last night was it. I didn’t leave the office until 10pm, far more inebriated than I expected I’d be and narrowly missed being dragged out dancing.
I came home, worshiped the porcelain god, stripped naked and fell asleep.
I woke up Saturday morning with the classic hangover headache and a stomach screaming, “DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DRINK AND DON’T EAT, BITCH!? DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS? THIS! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS!”
I worship the porcelain god, again. Fall back to sleep.
Wake up an hour later, same urge. I run to the bathroom to discover that James is in there. I call out, “I need to throw up!”
He comes out the bathroom door just as I manage to projectile vomit across the kitchen towards his feet, “OH CHRIST!” he says, as I stand there motionless, heaving a mixture of water and bile all over the floor, “Don’t just stand there, go throw up in the toilet!” he reminds me.
I owe him for cleaning up after me. I was so out of it.
I crawled back into bed and slept off my embarrassment, waking up about 1:30 in the afternoon.
I puttered around the Internet for awhile, reading blogs and writing a blog post….
Came home, watched some Family Guy with James, go to sleep.
I sleep away most of Sunday, and read lots of blogs, and decide that I don’t want to write anything.
James comes home from work about 6pm and we watch more Family Guy. A little after 9pm, we venture out for groceries and discover that the store we like to go to is closed because they close at 9pm on Sundays. The only grocery store open is the one that’s expensive… we cave and go there.
We come home, prepare a roast to put in the crockpot over night together, and then go back to Family Guy… which happens to be the episode with the recreation of the scene from Anchors Aweigh where Gene Kelly dances Jerry from Tom & Jerry.
The two scenes side by side here:
Which kicked off a YouTube tangent of watching clips of Gene Kelly in Singing in the Rain and Brigadoon and perhaps his most impressive number, tap dancing in roller skates in It’s Always Fair Weather
From there, we go on to visit a bunch more musicals and then land on listening to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and giggling over how drunk they seem and yet how wonderful they sound in this clip and lamenting the lack of showmanship in music and movies these days.
After about an hour, we remember we were watching Family Guy and return to finish the episode… and then, we go to bed.
So, that was my weekend. How was yours?
