This is post number 350!! Wheee!! While I was talking to one of my coworkers yesterday, as everyone came in they asked her whether she'd gotten engaged on Christmas. Through her exasperation she explained her boyfriend doesn't believe in that. I thought about it and I agree!! I look forward to my birthday and Christmas so much that August 24th and December 26th (the respective days after) are the worst days of the year to me. The worst!!! So I've decided the perfect day for me to get engaged is one of those days! Or maybe I'll get married on one of those days. That's what my dad did. His birthday is August 21st, anniversary August 22nd, my birthday (the best day obviously) August 23rd!
Wait, I can't stand heat or cold so I'd already decided years ago on October or April. I want to get married on campus at the chapel. It's right on the water. I want the students to be there and be in awe over the wedding like we always were. Lol.
Anyway now to the actual important things, not hypothetical events years off. I went to work yesterday, Stace was already awake at 630. GO TO BED!! I talked to her for a little bit at 8. After I got off work, I went home. We decided it was way too cold for us to go ice skating... at all this week. I know the high SAYS 48, but that did not feel like 48. To quote La, "No mas." I made breakfast and Stace polished off the rest of the croissants. She is a croissant groupie. "OMG croissant I love your flaky ways. Give it to me!" We hung around the house for a couple of hours, then went to see the movie "Jun.o." The music was horrid and distracting. Like to the point where you hear it and want to leave. Just give up and go see something else. Stace would have if I'd let her. Brat. I also did not know movies cost $9 per person here!! I knew in NY, CT, CA and places like that but geez. I'm never awake at night so I'm a bit out of the loop.
The movie ended up being not that bad but as we walked out I heard this couple say, "That was cute, but the music was horrible." I was thinking, "Oh good. I thought it was just us because we're black." But we're both musicians so we know what good music is supposed to sound like regardless of the genre. FYI Fergi.e's "Cl.umsy" and every other song she's ever done in her solo career? Not. Music. And Stace just pointed out how the whole video is just product placement. Wack. We did decide we'll go see "The Great Debaters" LIKE I WANTED TO IN THE FIRST PLACE. Brat. When I told my coworkers I was captain of the debate team in high school they said, "Why doesn't that surprise me?" Jerks.
After that we walked around the Waterfront shopping complex and picked up a couple of things. Lots of normal stores you find everywhere except F.ilenes, but we didn't go there. We headed to MadMex!! mmmmmmm!! I had Mahi Mahi tacos with a chipotle aioli. De.lish!! I love aiolis. She had combo fajitas- shrimp and mushroom. So fancy, that one. I also had a house margarita (no salt) with a floater of GrandMarnier, she had the white sangria. Don't we sound like such adults?! We rock. We came back and started watching "S.uperstar" but started to fall asleep. Why was it like 930? That would explain why we were up at 6:15 this morning and are watching the movie again. So funny. I know only MadMex was on yesterday's agenda so we will get some more of that taken care of today! Play it by ear. We'll have a great time regardless!
