Wow. I've had the greatest week off..
Friday was fun-kick ass cookout with the coworkers, cocktail party, and even got to see carmen.
Saturday was fun2- saw star wars again with corey and beth, drove to raliegh to see maksim and momji, then to naveen & ambers for a birthday party for maksim, with brad, cynthia, and kelly as well, then back to durham to hang out with b and maksim. i gave maksim his SUPER cool lightsaber that changes color.
Sunday i just hung out all day with maksim and b watching movies and gettin drunk! WOOHOO! it was maksim's bday.
Monday was more movies and then to lunch with b before heading to the beach . YAY beach.. straight to morehead city (hehe) to see my old roomies, jennifer and florian (i love those guys).. and then to harker's island to my new great roomie's family's beach house.
Tuesday kicked ass cause i got to see my old co-workers at the IMS (chapel hill's institute for marine science). went to the beach too, but it was cold... then to the channel marker with jen and florian and megan to see my old CM coworkers and then Nathan (HOT) and Jay (sort of Hot) showed up.. i had like 12 beers and too much fun...
which gave me a mad hangover the next day, which sucked cause i was on a boat for 9 hours.. 9! but that rocked anyways cause i got to help and be there when the archaeologists brought up some artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge. See my Flickr for pics. then i went to see star wars again (3rd time) because i am that much of a geek
thursday i headed to wilmington to see Liz Penley and Mark Bratcher, my fellow GIS techs and college drinkin buddies. we went to mellow mushroom (not as good as boone's by any stretch of the imagination) and there was this CRAPPY band playing.. so then we went and walked around downtown. went into this cool bar and were about to order drinks when.... the same band from mellow mushroom showed up! we got out of there in a hurry.. and went somewhere else to drink..
friday i went to the beach again.. which was much better... nice and sandy, warm, and free parking! go fort fisher! then back inland :( but i did stop in durham to see b and maksim again for dinner. i love those two, can ya tell? then to my brother's house in kannapolis to watch team america world police.. is there anything more disturbing and funny than marionettes having hard core sex? i don't think so.
saturday was marginal.. got my oil changed, cost me 45 bucks cause salisbury blows. but hung out with eric the mexican so it was all good.. saw my brother and emma and elora (my two lovely neices). then home... but here's the craziest part of my whole week.... i was on the internet on aim... and i saw my ex-boyfriend's screen name on line. i have seen him on there many times but have not had the shimmys to talk to him.. i havn't talked to him in 3 years.. hurt too bad... but i was in a good mood saturday night... and well, i just got up the nerve and imed him... it was so cool, he was so cool. we had a 2 hour conversation and he invited me to lunch with him the next day.. i couldn't believe how cool he was being and how great of a conversation we had.
then sunday i met him for lunch at waffle house.... don't laugh, it's tradition. it's where he took me on our first date because we both worked second shift all the time.. it was cool though.. after a 2 hour lunch and conversation he invited me to see his new house, and i bit. i followed him to his house and we had 3 more hours of conversation and hanging out.. playing with his dog and sittin on a rock.. it was so weird and yet so NOt weird.. i really had a great time. i hope i get to hang out with him again soon, but i'm not holding my breath.. i did see him for 5 hours and i'm really glad i got to be friends with him again.. i'm just so surprised that it went so well.. he even apologized (sort of) for being such an asshole to me before..
it felt really good.
but... after 5 hours i left because i just had too. i couldn't be there too long. i didn't want it to get to be weird. so then i went to eat with mark.. and played a five hour game of spades and lost but it's ok.. i can't help my partner lost 300 points with 3 busted nils!! dah!!! oh well i still love mark i guess :) . but anywho
that was my awesome week off.. i couldn't have beat it if i tried.
