My Uneventful Weekend.

So what a gloomy weekend we had Saturday to Sunday. I might even include Friday. So, Friday I went out for my friends birthday. And he kept apologizing for making me drive, but I told him I would drive. The only problem that I had with driving that night, was when my other two friends that came with us didn't drink. I mean c'mon, we went out to celebrate our friends birthday and we were just sitting their watching him drink and listening to my boring stories. I mean I had a few to drink, but I just felt bad cause we were just sitting around. Soo anyways that was Friday. I was in a bad mood anyways that day because my boss was pissing me off. She was yelling at me for not vaccuming the meeting room after the chess club, and I politely asked, "Don't we have a cleaning service?"

Let's see Saturday, I did nothing. Even though my mom doesn't stop asking me when I'm going to be applying to St. John's for Grad School. I just got my tuition bill today for LIU, which my dad is pretty pissed about. I just want to get Grad school over with and get everyone off my back about when I'm going to start school. Ugg. So anyways, Saturday I felt like crap and didn't do anything. I had a cold, but I went to Barnes and Noble to get a book on HTML so I can work on my Blog for the Library, but I ended up with two books on Crocheting and Knitting. One book is Stitch and Bitch and the other is The Happy Hooker, both by Debbie Stoller (the editor for Bust magazine, which I also bought as well). I'm debating about whether or not I should introduce some of the Teens to Bust, but I think its more for College Students. Its a great magazine if you are interested. They have great interviews with celebs, intriquing topics, and CRAFTS! Haha. Debbie Stoller rocks. She's on tour with her new book, The Happy Hooker, I'll have to see if she'll be in the neighborhood.

So Sunday. I was supposed to go to New York City to find the best route to get to the NYU campus where I'll be taking classes in May, but it rained. Instead, we went to the Palisades Mall. It was so damn hot that I think I shrunk. My breasts definately didn't shrink, because I'm only one size away from never being able to buy a bra in that store again. It was so dissappointing this year to hear that I was a D-cup, but to be practically booted out of the store! Pretty soon I'll need a walker to hold up my breasts, cause thats the only way Ill be able to support them! So anyways I spent four hours at the mall with my mother and sister. I bought a bra (haha its ugly), a bath robe, and some supplies for my crochet projects. I was so cranky. I was yelling at old people because they kept stopping in front of me. I was yelling at Michelle. Yelling at my mother. I was on a rampage. I hate shopping with other people. I have to, because I always buy things that don't look good on me. But, I just hate shopping with people.

Anyways, the Library was good today. My boss wasn't in and it was very quiet. The best part of my day was when my dad came to visit tonight. This little boy was standing next to him, and I guess the little boy thought that my dad was his older brother. So for some reason the little boy just turned around and smacked my dad right in the leg missing the "secret no-no spot" as my brother calls it. Haha.

All Alone at Work

So it is Friday morning and I'm here at work by myself. My boss had told me that she was going to be here at 10 a.m. While trying desperately hard to try and get myself up this morning, I tried to convince myself that I could show up a half hour late. After all, according to my boss I have a half hour overtime that I need to take off. But, no, I decided that I was going to be a good person and not get in trouble for coming in late. It's 11:00 and my boss still hasn't come in, and I'm just wasting away cause I have nothing to do. I just wrote up to bibliographies for fourth graders. Exciting. Five o'clock can not come any sooner.

Tomorrow is my friend Matt's birthday, but Saturday's aren't good for him, so we are going out tonight. Who knows what bar we will end up at. I'm going to be honest, I go to a bar almost every weekend. I'm not a drunk or anything, it just happens to be the only thing to do around here. I'm beginning to ask myself why do I spend so much time getting ready to go out. Its the same thing every time. I get all dolled up, my hair and makeup look great, and then I sit at the bar crossing my legs in a sexy coy way, but its useless. I don't know why I keep thinking that one of these days this great guy is just going to walk over, by me a drink, and wa-la the rest is history.

I believe this is what makes me more depressed that I think the only place where I can meet a cute guy is at a bar. My friends are useless. Whenever they say they have a cute single guy, they only mention him, but they never seem to follow through. So, I've given up on bars and friends, and I am no way trying the on-line route. I'll do that when I've reached my 40s. There's a scene in The March of the Penguins, where the female penguins are fighting over the male penguins. Apparently, the female penguins outnumber the males. So maybe thats my problem, there's just not enough males in the world to go around. They're either taken, gay, or they just didn't survive. Thats a really terrible thing to say, but fate sucks sometimes.

First Entry

I'm not very good at keeping up with journals and such. For a while I had an addiction of buying really nice leather bound journals, which would hold the secrets to my wonderfully, boring life. I usually never got past the first entry. Or writing my name on the first page really fancy. Well I am going to do my best with this blog.
One thing I enjoy doing is telling stories about myself, my crazy family, and whatever goes on at work. I am currently a "Youth Services Librarian Trainee" aka "Somebody's Bitch." Then again when are we not somebody's bitch. I will be starting Grad classes in May, non-matric (which was a really stupid idea, but I just wanted to get my boss off my back about taking classes). I hope to get my Masters in Library Science so that I can work in a College Library, and then take classes for free (muahaha). Anyways here goes my first post, hopefully I will have some more interesting things to say as well as some interesting rants.

Currently reading: Girlbomb (Great read for all you Women Studies people out there. The author has some articles published in Bust magazine.)
