Ah yesterday was interesting.
Starts off with me sleeping in. Then driving off to work at 6:30 because I forgot to turn in my time sheet the night before and then I write on the board about me going to the dentist and being back around 11.
Then I get back and follow my BF to the dentist. Because as it works out he has a consultation at 8 and I have a cleaning at 8:40 so I tagged along to sit in on the consult. He's getting his wisdom teeth pulled. Finally. After 14 years of not going to the dentist I finally got him to go because of the searing tooth pain he's had off and on for over a month. Turns out one of his wisdom teeth is growing in sideways and the tooth it's up against is decaying and he might have to have a root canal on it. So I'm the DD fro the dental appointment on Monday to get all that done as he'd going to be all loopy form th e sedation.
I finally get to work and I have a lovely headache from the tooth cleaning. And then I get to work and my computer won't boot. Just a blinking cursor mocking me from the upper left of the screen. And my normal trick of taking out and putting back in th eRAM didn't work this time so I called th ehelp desk to get them to come out to fix it.
Then I went to Target to get my BF's pain meds and pick up some reading material to kill the time while my computer is down.
But I don't get to loiter long as there is a meeting I forgot about that I have to drive to up north. A bunch of boring engineers putting together a bunch of rules for a pavement council they're putting together. SO it's 2 hours of listening to people drone on about bylaws and what the acronym should be.
Then I luck out that the meeting is over just in time to hit rush hour traffic. And I get back to work and my computer still isn't fixed. SO I go home. No point in twiddling my thumbs for the next 20 minutes.
Then on the way home I get a text from my BF saying that his little sister wants to show off our dog to someone and that he'll also be leaving work an hour late. OK. Not so happy with that one so between texts to figure out what's happening that afternoon, because I'm a bit pissed that he forgot that we scheduled Thursday nigh tas date night. Because I wanted to take him out to dinner because I got paid and was no longer broke.
So ya a bit pissed that I was getting nudged out by his sister and the dog. SO that left me with a hankering for booze. So I stopped by the liquor store to pick up some stuff that I was out of: Starbucks Cream Liquor, Kahlua and Vanilla Vodka. Then I looked down and saw a bottle of Frangelico. I had no idea what that was. It turns out that it's hazelnutty. SO I add that into my purchase as well so I can make my infamously yummy (now nutty) Hazelnut Mochatini's.
I get home, take the edog out to pee and pick up the mail. IT turns out that the emagazine I ordered from t he UK is here. It's one with an interview of Tom Waits. See my BF is on a Tom Waits kick and so I ordered it for him as a surprise. Then as I was in the boring ass meeting earlier that day I figured out that I could just add on to the magazines and make it a Tom Waits themed x-mas present. so I'm going to try and find some Waits on vinyl to complete the ensemble.
I sit down to a mochatini and some popcorn to tide me over to dinner and finally things get ironed out that date night is on and my BF is leaving work earlier than he thought.
HE gets home, takes a shower and I get ready to go out. Then I ask him to take the dog out to pee as I'm almost ready. 20 minutes of sitting on the couch later waiting and getting progressively pissed, my BF walks through the door. It turns out that some dogs were up there and he let the puppy play for a while. SO I let him know in the efuture, please not. As it's humans before dogs and making me wait so the dog can play doesnt fly with me. HE apologised and we took off.
HE had a hankering for pizza so we went to a nice italian eatery and had a bottle of white and sat and talked. It was pretty cool as the restaurant had a view of the state capitol building from where we were sitting by the window.
It was a nice date and I had a good time and then we went home, curled up in bed and finally fell asleep after watching the new South Park.
And that was my Thursday. The end.
