Taxes and Alchoholic Orange Juliuses

Happy Tax Day people. Mwahaha. I hope you all got your stuff done I finally sent in my Oregon taxes yesterday (they wanted money from me so I put it off for a while haha). Anyway yeah taxes suck.

So last night we had alcoholic Orange Juliuses. Have you ever bought a bottle of rum, and then gone to the house that you’re all hanging out at, only to realize that nobody remembered to bring the Coke? Yeah, that was totally us last night. So the only thing in the fridge at my friends house were a couple cans of this sparkling orange flavored… stuff? Damned if I know what it was but it was a pretty good mixer. Our drinks were rum filled melted orange juliuses. Good times! :D

Hrm. What else to blog about… well, I’m moving this weekend. Puppy is a spaz. Work is fun, but people are stupid. That’s about it.

Oh, I also made like, an invite only blog on Blogger for posting about things that are fun but that I don’t need the whole wide internet to know about. If you want access (and think that it’s possible that I’d let you read it lol [if I talk to you I’ll probably let you in]) leave a comment here saying that you want access and I’ll hook you up with an invite email *nods* Gmail acct if possible, I think it works better that way. I’m way too lazy to go track down all your email addresses. I plan on posting about last weekends shenanigans (those of you that follow my Twitter might be curious) some time soon! Yay!

That is all. I will try not to be so sparse and update more often but I make no promises.

Birthday Weekend ROCK!

I had the most fabulous birthday weekend, yay!

Friday night I went to my friend Kristen’s house and had dinner with her and Megan, and we had cake and ice cream and it was totally rad. Then I picked Tom up and the 4 of us headed over to Malone’s where we ran into some of Tom’s friends, and one of Megan’s friends, and this dude that I know from work, and also a girl that actually works with me that I called to come meet up with us, and good times were had, up until the part when Tom had to carry me out of the bar. Everybody wanted to buy the birthday girl a drink. Oops.

So I spent most of Saturday recovering from Friday night. Tom made me get up to go eat at like, 1 and that helped quite a bit. I sat around all day watching movies and messing around on the internet and sleeping and cursing my liver. Then I picked Tom up from work and we sat around watching more movies together because my liver threatened to explode if I even thought about stepping foot into a bar. I feel like I did more than that, but I don’t think that I did.

So then Sunday, my actual birthday-day, we went mini-golfing and good times were had there. We are pathetically bad at mini golf haha. So by good times, I mean we spent a lot of time laughing at each other and cursing up a storm :D I randomly got a hole-in-one though, it was rad! Apparently there is no prize for making the ball into the bowl in the lake on the last hole, as we found out after Lee made it. We were hoping for a nacho sombrero, but the only prize is self-satisfaction. “Well damn, if I wanted that I would have used your bathroom for a few minutes!” hahaha. It was a blast. Anyway, then we all headed over to Lee and Kristen’s house and Kristen made us homemade nachos and they were omg so awesome! Oh and somewhere in there I was on Mr Fab’s radio show and it was a spectacular failure haha :D It was fun, even if we have no common ground and my reputation on the internet is now ruined because everybody knows thinks I hang out in a crackhouse. Anyway after that it was off barhopping. We went to Ringo’s to hang out with my piercer buddy and his girlfriend and another friend of theirs. Then we went to Friends to do karaoke, but we forgot it was Sunday and we got there after last call, but the guy was cool and gave us each a drink cause it was my birthday and I got to sign a dollar bill and they stuck it on the wall, but we got no karaoke. So we stopped at someone’s house but didn’t stick around long cause we didn’t like the crowd, so then it was sleep time, woo.

I took today off from work and spent the day with Tom. We were planning on going to drive some super fast go-kart type things but it looked like rain so we went and watched Ratatouille instead, which was adorable for those who have not seen it. When we got out of the movie, yeah, it was raining. We got pretty wet walking back to the car. So then that meant that his buddy that was gonna work on his van didn’t come, which was the whole reason we didn’t go to the coast today like I had originally wanted to do. Meh, the weather probably would have been worse there anyway. Then we got all dressed up and went to dinner at the Portland City Grill which was phenomenal. The view was amazing, the food was amazing, and the company wasn’t so shabby either

And now, I must sleep, for work tomorrow will be a nightmare. I’ve seen what bad condition my office is in after I leave for a few hours, a whole day of not being there is scary. Meep!

Whoever Invented 3 Day Weekends ROCKS!

Yay! I love three day weekends. Actually, I love all weekends, but I love 3 day ones better. Because they are longer. Duh :D

Sooo Friday was awesome. I went and hung out right after work with a couple of my friend’s from highschool, which is always nice. I lost Emo Hat but I think Karo said he has it so I will have to get it tomorrow.

After that, I went over to Jeremy’s house so that we could go DRUNKEN BOWLING!! It was Kevan’s birthday so a bajillion people went to this bowling alley to celebrate. I bowled better than my average and I couldn’t even walk straight. It was awesome, until I realized Jeremy beat me by ONE PIN. ONE!!! What is that nonsense?!?!?! Rawr. But the second game, I was getting strike after strike and I totally stomped, so there.

Saturday I woke up with like, the hangover from hell. Jeremy and I went and had the nastiest Panda Express on earth… the orange chicken was soggy and tasted like vinegar. It made me queasy, and the egg rolls weren’t really any good either. How can Panda Express not be good??!! I was not happy. So then I had to go to Taco Bell and get tacos and then I felt better. Then Friend Tom dragged me up a mountain and I felt better. We got robbed by the zoo, they didn’t let us in to see the monkeys. Also, my foot started bleeding and wouldn’t stop for like, 2 days. Nice.

Yesterday I drove up to Fontana to meet my new roommate. He is now staying here at my house. I got to meet his family and they all seem pretty cool. We leave in like, 10 days. EXCITING! Also, we had dinner and watched Ghost Rider which was a pretty wicked movie. Good times.

I spent a whole awful lot of time distracting Jeremy from drawing, oops. I kept trying to make him do it! I swear! “Jeremy! Go draw!” “I will in a couple minutes!!” “Uh huh.” I’m kind of going to miss him :(

This Is Titleless, Oh My!

At some point, I am quite sure I will eventually catch up on my sleep.  Just not anytime soon!

Busy busy weekend. Friday night The Sonia and I went on a misadventure and it was fun. First off, I couldn’t drive my truck normally for a few miles ‘cause the mechanic readjusted my clutch (apparently it was riding high, so I had to get used to it all over again because it was engaging in a different place).. so that was fun. THEN OMG WE GOT STUCK ON A BIG HILL LOOKING FOR PARKING o_O It was scurry. I was going up the hill,  but not fast enough so suddenly I was not moving. GAH. So Sonia starts hyperventilating and I’m like “GAAAAH OMG WHAT DO I DOOOOO?!?!?!?!” so I remembered that somebody said “lot’s of gas” so I gave it lots of gas and my tire squealed but I didn’t roll backwards :D I hope to never stop on a hill again haha.

So we finally found parking but the sign said we had to be out by 11. So we sprinted to the bar, and Carlton from Fresh Prince was there haha. Anyway me and Sonia grabbed a drink, drank it fast, talked about random things like we love to do and sprinted back to the truck at 10:56. YAY! So then we went to Hilary’s house and hung out there for a few hours and it was fun.

Then Saturday morning I took Vinz to Puppy Graduation and he was all sorts of excited for some reason. I mean, he’s always hyper… but this was extreme even by his standards. Weirdo. Anyway, after that I went to lunch with Jeff while he has his car washed. Then it started raining. Poor Jeff.

So then I was stuck in traffic on the 101 because I am retarded and didn’t know that even though I was going south, I needed the 101 north to get to the 405. So eventually when I wound up in downtown LA and still hadn’t hit the freeway I figured out I went the wrong way. But at that point it was easier to take the other freeway and just chalk it up to going the long way to Culver City. I’m a special brand of stupid Once I hit the 110 I knew exactly where I was going, because that’s how I used to get to Santa Monica from Glendale. La la la.

Me and Jeremy played Wii for a while and I made a total dork of myself playing golf “Katie! We’re playing golf, not baseball!” Well whatever, I made it in the hole eventually :blush: Actually, I played Wii for a long time. I started playing Zelda and like, an hour later I was like “…. oh man I’ve been playing this longer than I thought”. It was horridly fun and now I kind of want one. I made a Mii and it’s totally awesome.

Then we went to a party in a shady part of town and left after not too long because one of Jeremy’s friends was afraid he was going to die. That was the end of that *shrug* More Wii was played and it was funny watching people play bowling.

Sunday I went to go see my aunt from my dad’s side of the family. I hadn’t seen anybody in years… it was nice. I get my “no sense of direction whatsoever” from my dad’s side, along with the phrase “holy hell that’s obnoxious… I LOVE IT!” haha

Then (omg could this weekend possibly have been any more packed with things to do!?) I went to pick up Jeff, and we played video games, then went and had a very yummy sushi dinner (I love California rolls) and did laundry and watched half a movie before I was so exhausted I don’t even remember dragging my butt to bed.

And now I am at work, and my coworker is back from London and he brought me a totally rad fishie purse and an England Beanie and a key chain. I’ve been here an hour and a half and have yet to start actually working.

Recuperating, la la la

Boy. What a weekend. When I came in to work today somebody was saying they wished it was Friday and I thought “… no way. I need this week to finish recovering!” Wheeeeeee.

Friday night me and Jeff went out really late cause he had to work. We went to The Sapphire (why do these types of places never have websites? srsly) cause that’s where my buddy from work works on the weekends. He got me a free drink, yay! It was a cute place. A little bit loud for normal conversation, but that is probably the point hehe. Afterward we talked with Ricky for a while, then went to have food cause I was le hungry. I love IHOP! :D

Then we had to get up early Saturday to take Vinz to training class. We just kind of had a review. Apparently my dog is training himself cause I haven’t worked with him at home as often as I should (I know, bad Katie :X) but he’s learning everything anyway. Cool. Now if only I could get him to mellow out a little lot.

Then after training I went with Hilary and Paula and Amber and we met some other dolly people at the Volk’s store which is a totally bad idea haha. I was good though and hardly spent any money at all unlike *ahem* some people ahahaha :D Google got us lost on the way there by telling us to get off the freeway on an exit that doesn’t even exist, wtf? Anyway, after Volk’s we all went to Mimi’s Cafe, which I totally do not recommend to anybody. The lemonade, and the brown bready-cakey thing that they brought out was good, but the food was sooooooo gross. Hilary actually sent hers back, that’s how bad it was, and I just kind of suffered through my caesar salad, because honestly, if you can’t make a decent caesar salad there is just no hope for any of your other food. Also, my blueberry muffin was insanely unimpressive.

So yes. After that we raced back to Hilary’s house so that Paula would not be too horribly late to babysitting and then me and Amber hung out there for awhile. Then I went home and I changed my clothes and did my makeup and stuck my emo-hat on my head because my hair was being retarded, and I totally forgot to take pictures for the day, oops.

Anyway then I stole Jeff’s car and drove a really really REALLY long way down Burbank Blvd (I honestly thought the 405 was a lot closer to my house than it is) and rolled in neutral down the freeway for awhile.. it’s great, the 405 is at enough of a downward angle that if you hit the gas until you hit 70, you can roll for MILES. Then I hit traffic and actually had to drive the rest of the way to Culver City. Went to my friends house, we went out with a bunch of his friends.. I had 1 AMF too many, bleh. Was in no condition to really walk, let alone drive my butt home so I had to crash there.

Got up in the morning, walked to the car… the tire I told Jeff needed to be replaced weeks ago is totally wasted. Flat as can be. No hopes of fixing it. Jeremy tried to change it but apparently the car takes a special key to get the tire off and I didn’t have it. So AAA came and informed me that I wasn’t going to be able to drive that far on a donut anyway. They offered to take me someplace that could get the tire off and sell me a new one and I was like “Pffft. I’m not saving Jeff the trouble of getting a new tire. Tow it home please, he can deal with it.” I was annoyed because EVERY TIME I tell Jeff he needs to do something and he doesn’t do it, it’s ME that has to deal with the fallout. My AAA covers me for 3 tows up to 100 miles so I took advantage of that. The tow truck left the car half a block up from the house and I have no idea what Jeff is going to do about it.

So that was a life experience, I’d never been towed before. I probably would have rather kept it that way but oh well. I went home and took a nap and played lots of video games, and now I am recovering. That is all.
