woke up today, to everything gray

I am in A Mood but I'm working really hard to get out of it. I always get really cranky on Mondays because I'm upset that the weekend is over, even though it happens EVERY WEEK, so you'd think I'd be used to it by now. You'd be wrong, though. As it is, I'm struggling not to punch my coworkers in the face just because they have the AUDACITY to speak to me. I keep thinking, "snap out of it, Crankypants," every time I get all snarky with someone in my head, and really, it's the thought that counts SO BACK OFF.

It makes it even harder (heh) to get back to work when the weekend was such a good one. We visited Lampl and Jon on Friday, since they are soon leaving us for sunny Florida, and although the night started off innocently with margaritas and burritos at Chipotle, it soon moved to buying random beer at the grocery (WARNING: do not buy beer just because it has Bigfoot on it and you think it'll be funny because it tastes like . . . well, Sasquatch ass) and ended with a lot of screeching into the microphone during Rock Band and a late night run though Taco Bell. I knew things were not going to end well when it was my turn to sing and I realized I was seeing two sets of lyrics, and so I had to squint to make out the words to Any Way You Want It. I mean, luckily, I know most of those words ANYWAY (you want it) so crisis averted. I ended up singing it twice, for some reason, and I'm still not sure how that happened.

Needless to say, I did nothing productive on Saturday and ended up lying around in my pajamas for most of the day lamenting the fact that OH, I AM NOW SO OLD. I look forward to celebrating getting even older next weekend with the Reds and giant beers. So I will be spending much of next Sunday in my pajamas being completely unproductive, is what I'm saying.

Thank you for the Guster! You brightened my Monday even though my feet are still wet.

I'll be in Dayton this weekend for your birthday. I swear it has nothing to do with the April birthdays of my dad (same day as yours), both my sisters in law, two nephews and a niece.

Obviously you performed it twice because there were two sets of lyrics up there. You were just doing your job.

Also, yes, Guster is good for Monday mornings.

Julie, it's a good month for birthdays. My roommate's birthday is Saturday. Whoo!

mg! we saw Guster last night and they didn't play that song. I'm still bitter. ALSO they weren't serving beer. W. T. F.

I think I broke people's minds when I sang White Wedding. I shouldn't say 'sang' so much as 'rocked the shit out of'.

I see the rock star ego has kicked in. Heehee.

verbing the shit out of things just seems so messy.

Tam said...

agreed verbing shit is messy.

Also, April birthdays rock the shit out of everything.

I don't remember you singing Any Way You Want It but thanks for it being stuck in my head now.
