I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but I’m trying to learn French… Yes, it’s kind of in bits and pieces as I pick it up from my friends, but it’s certainly fun! Kristina and I downloaded a program too, but it’s on her computer and we haven’t sat down and played with it much… Maybe I should copy it to my computer, or burn it to a cd and listen to it in my car. In any case, I’ll decide something I want to say and then ask Ken how to say it and go around using that phrase all day. Today it is “Je suis fatigué” which means “I am tired.” LOL, I know a few small things here and there too, and certain words… So when Josh and Jon sat together and spoke french, I could actually pick up on a few words, which leads to me figuring out the basic gist of the conversation. It’s fun! I am actually really enjoying learning it.
On another note, I have to mention that I love-love-LOVE Joss Whedon’s new series Dollhouse. Josh messaged me last night and said I really needed to watch it, so I pulled up Hulu and watched the first two episodes. Brilliant! And Eliza Dushku really rocks my socks in this role. The only thing I worry about is that it currently is airing on Fox. I don’t trust that they won’t make me fall in love with the show and then yank it out from under me like they did Firefly. Bastards. Oh well, enjoy it while it lasts right?
And yes, je suis fatigue. I don’t know why I’m so tired, I went to bed fairly early last night… It was like 11pm, and I slept til about 9am this morning… (Give or take tossing and turning a slight bit, and some strange dreams I don’t quite remember.) I thought that sleeping for almost 10 hours would make up for the minimal sleep I received this weekend, but I was wrong. It’s been a long time since I went 48 hours on less than an hour of sleep. I miss those days when I could continually not sleep (i.e. working theatre until 3am, going home and reading my book until 5am and then getting back up for school/more theatre.) I’m only 23 years old, I should still be able to party and then get up and go to work! Haha!
In any case, the weekend was eventful. Saturday (following my previous blog) I had a bit of a freak out about my personal space and broke down a bit. Kristina recognized this and we totally gutted my room and re-arranged everything so I can put it in the closet and close the door and have good organization. We also moved the futon into Kailee’s room so that I had more walking space. It felt good to clean it, and I dubbed it my pre-spring cleaning and felt amazingly better after. However, now when I walk in my room… It feels too… Empty. I need to put pictures up or find some new furniture for it… Maybe I’ll get myself a bookshelf so I can finally put my books out.
After I felt better I swung up and picked up Josh and Max and brought them to my house where we played strategy games. The games only allow for 6 players so I sat the first one out and finally finished my book. I’m going to blog about it next, it’s amazing and I think everyone should read it. It’s The Mastery of Love by Miguel Ruiz, and I plan on re-purchasing it in the future. Haha, it’ll be the third time I buy that book, and I think it’s awesome. I bought two copies just before Yule, and gave one to [womanizer], and then I read the other. I had the strongest urge to give it to another friend to read, so when I finished it I jotted down a quick note for him in the cover and turned it over to him permanently. I love that feeling. I like it when I feel like a book chooses me, and when I feel like it has a further purpose and I can pass it along… That’s love, books = love for me.
OH! I forgot to mention that I actually made it up to the bowling alley on Friday to get my W2. Bree, I see what you mean about the car they had painted, it’s… special. Really special. I got to say hi to Bob Scadden and catch up with Evelyn for a bit. Monty and Dick weren’t there at first, but I did get to see Kim, Savannah, and the new baby which looks like a miniature Bridger, and therefore a miniature Monty. Shauna was there, and I bumped into Terry and Jay Jorgenson on the way out the door. How I miss that place sometimes! I did also get to see Dick and Monty as they arrived just as I was leaving, hugs all around and catching up. Apparently the Syracuse alley is coming along and is set to open in April, I need to check it out as it’s just down the road from me. I also need to check in on my old ball, I’ve been reading about what companies make the best ones (article source if you want it is here), and it’s got me thinking about the games I played with my old favorite. Is it one of them? And is it wrong that I kind of want to go work there again?
Sunday morning I went to breakfast with Josh, Angel, Max, and Jon at the Star Cafe, where we enjoyed ourselves and got to chat and have good food. After I dropped them all off at home, I stopped for gas at the Chevron on 21st and Harrison, and guess who I bumped into? Dick again, blue corvet and all. It was a strange coincidence, twice in one week after all these months… So we gabbed for a minute, and I told him I need to come visit Holly, and he said I should come over and see his new carpet. I might just do that. (Shut up Bree. I really honestly know what is going through your head right now and I don’t like it! LMAO!)
I’ll end this blog now, with one question… Why are my blogs always so long lately?
Je t’aime mes amis! I love you my friends!
