Okay.. one or two things could have made it better.. aside from the obvious improvement that ending the day with some dirty-hot yet wholly monogamous monkey sex would have made, it could have been better if I was able to get my mom the gift I wanted to get for her birthday tomorrow.. I have a contingency, but well.. you can't win em all, I guess.
Otherwise, this days' been pretty flippin' fantastic. First, I just felt ridiculously cute all day. I looked hot, okay? It's not everyday that I can honestly say I look at myself and go 'Damn, you're SMOKIN' HOT today!'. Today was one of those days.
On my travels to try and track down my mom's birthday present, I picked up a movie I have been wanting to see for some time now, Slap Shot with Paul Newman, for the ridiculously low price of a lousy six bucks. Suh-Weet! My dad's been telling me about this one for years. Despite not being much of a sports fan, aside from hockey which I still only watch sporadically, I love sports movies with a passion on level with the passion with which I hate talking-animal movies. The whole sport-movie genre is essentially a genre of underdog stories, and if there is one thing I love, it's a good underdog.
I got the call that Wal-Hell tracked down some winter tires that will fit my car and they should be here for Friday, which is just in time, since I have an impromptu road trip for Tuesday now...
I got an email that I won tickets to see Finger Eleven in Kitchener next week through CHARTAttack. Oh, and a complete discography (oooha oooha!) After figuring out that I was NOT out of the country that day, I messaged a friend of mine and invited her, which turned out to be a more fantastic idea than I could have possibly imagined as a) she's never been to a concert and B) she was planning to see these guys in the spring so I was all like "WELL LET'S FUCKIN' GOOOOOO THEN!" which made said friend uber-happy, thus in turn making ME uber-happy because shit, man, who doesn't love a road trip and a concert? A FREE concert, no less?
Even better, when I asked the ex-hub and the new-wife about taking the girls overnight that night, they were all 'Oh, we were hoping to keep them one night next week. Tuesday sounds good.' How easy was THAT?
So yeah, next Tuesday I'm going to get off work, drive 2.5 hours to Kitchener, attend a concert, come home and work the next day. Because I am THAT effin' Hardcore.
Lastly, I got included in a Johnny Cash themed Etsy Treasury. See that one down in the bottom right hand corner? Those are my Johnny Cash coasters. You bet your arse they are. I feel like I've arrived in the crafting world.
Oh and since I haven't mentioned it in a bit, in a little over a week I will be out of this cold damp Canadian winter and basking in the all-inclusive glow of the Playa Dorada in Puerto Plata with two of my other best friends. That in and of itself kicks a whole lot of ass.
Now I'm sitting here facebooking and blogging, and my hair is purple and I am nice and sore from getting my ass kicked at kick-boxing tonight, sore in the good way as it was a hell of a workout. Got to use my Comic Life program for the first time in the four-someodd years I've had this computer, and oh yeah.. sleep is good too. night night, y'all.
