I had a wonderful weekend! I'll write more about it later, but it was happy happy!
And then this morning, I got woken up by Allyn calling me! Well, technically I got woken up by my alarm, and then fell asleep again, and then got woken up by Allyn, but it was still wonderful!
I got to relax a little bit this morning because she was nice and called me, and I still managed to leave for work a little early. And the highways were sooooo clear! I barely had to go below 70 at all!
Today just seems bright and happy and good, and I hope it stays that way, and that the whole week is the same.
Allyn is going to be busy for a little bit this evening, but after that I get to see her! *bounce!* Things are looking better and happier again! *bounce bounce!*
*thinks about how lovely and sexy Allyn is*
Allyn was busy in the morning when I was getting my PS2 fixed and doing random chores, but she came over at 3:00.
It was very wonderful to see her, and we spent lots of time having fun together! After a couple of hours of hanging out and stuff, we decided to go to dinner, and since she just had her birthday I took her to Claim Jumper's as her birthday present =)
There was a 30 or 45 minute wait, so we sat outside and talked. Allyn thinks I look gay when I dance =) We had lots and lots of yummy food, and we had lots and lots of leftovers.
We went home, and watched the second half of the Matrix (which we'd watched the first half of quite awhile ago) and had more fun.
Then she had to go home =( But it was a very good day, lots of time spent snuggling and being happy together. I hope that once I move we'll get to spend a lot more like it together, especially when school starts up for her again.
I woke up pretty late, about two or three I think.
I spent some time online, and spent some time reading, but I was feeling kind of lonely. I took a shower, and at about six or seven I called Shawkial and Gwri and asked if they were interested in going to a movie or doing something else that evening. They said yes, so I drove over and got there a little before eight.
I wrote Allyn before I went, but it turns out that she was at dinner, and couldn't come along.
When I got there, we spent about ten minutes trying to figure out where we were going to eat dinner while Bricriu was using the computer (I hope it's possible to get Shawkial's computer working as a sever again at some point after I move in.) Then we looked at movie times and reviews. We decided that we were going to see Evolution or Knight's Tale. They both looked like fairly dumb but fun summer movies.
We finally decided to go to Denny's, but still weren't very sure of which movie or at what time. Dinner took a little longer than expected. Well, longer than hoped, but about exactly as long as expected: just long enough to make it too late to go to theater #1. So we went to theater #2 which had later times.
They had showings of both movies fairly soon, so we discussed it for a few minutes, and finally decided on Knight's Tale. I was kind of happy with that decision, since Allyn has already seen Knight's Tale, and maybe we can go see Evolution together this way =)
The movie was cool. Some of the anacrhonisms stood out like a sore thumb. I almost wonder if they should have put some more anachronisms in a little earlier, instead of waiting five minutes, so that it would be more clear what they intended.
I thought the blacksmith was a lot cuter than the princess, and Allyn agreed with me when we talked about it later =) It's sad that she didn't find someone to be with =(
At some parts it seemed like they were actually going into more character development with the secondary characters than is normal, but of course that stopped once the climax started approaching.
All in all it was pretty good once you got past the anachronisms, which should have been either less or more.
After that we went back to the apartment and I went home. Didn't get to sleep till about four, but I woke up and felt wonderful this morning anyway, because Allyn called me, yayayayyayayay! =)
When I'm sad or unhappy or depressed, I tend to buy things. Is this strange? Am I the only one who does this?
Bought lots of yummy food tonight. I have to wonder if it's worth it. For $35, instead of Brie cheese and cherries and carrots and mushrooms and candy, I could have just bought some potatoes instead, and then bought myself a DVD.
I guess that now the deed is done, I'll just try to enjoy the thing I have, and not think too much about what I could have gotten instead.
There are so many things I want to do, so many things I want to say. It seems that I can't do and say them all, so I end up doing and saying nothing instead.
I'm contemplating a new diet thing. Have you ever looked at the nutritional information on a bag of sugar? It says that one teaspoon only has 15 calories!
The key to losing weight is having a high metabolism, so what would happen if you ate lots of pure sugar? If I ate three teaspoons of sugar before work, and ate three teaspoons every hour at work, and then ate three teaspoons just before bed, it would all total up to only about 500 calories, and can you imagine how fast your metabolism would be racing?
One problem with this idea is that _some_ people claim that I'm hypoglycemic. On the other hand, I usually don't have a problem as long as the intake of sugar is constant. It's only when there's dips and peaks in the intake that I get weird, er, I mean theoretically get weird =)
Of course exercise would help a lot in this regard as well.
