I know, I didn't post a single thing last week regarding my party (it was fun!) or what I did for the week following while I didn't have to be at work (other than a brief interruption on Tuesday when I had to go in to get my mid-year review).

Party was a success! [livejournal.com profile] margaras arrived quite unexpectedly, but we didn't complain! It was nice to see him again! And he got free monitors out of the visit. [livejournal.com profile] winterlady, [livejournal.com profile] bugfish, and kidlet came as expected, bearing gifts of fudge, pie, and a WoW time card! [livejournal.com profile] eligrrl and her boyfriend came. She even brought White Cheddar Cheez-its, which are one of the best snack foods EVER. [livejournal.com profile] oskaar arrived a bit later than everyone else, but it was nice to see him again, too. Non-LJ friend Steve also came over with his cheesy potatoes. And I made a vegetarian version of my crack-pasta dish despite [livejournal.com profile] fenwalker not making it after all. It came out great anyway, so I'm not complaining. Much. ;) We watched Jeff Dunham's Arguing with Myself, Clue, and Margaret Cho's I'm the One I Want.

The rest of last week was mostly low key. We went to have dinner at [livejournal.com profile] lilbearmi's place on Monday and watched The Producers (musical version). [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi's sister took us out to lunch at TGI Friday's on Monday, too. We also exchanged our Xbox360 (our second one, that stopped spinning discs) and they let us keep the hard drive from the old one AND we got a store credit since the price dropped $50 since we had bought it. It also came with Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Forza 2. Seeing as how we already owned the latter that was amusing. Later in the week we used that credit to nab Apartment Life for The Sims 2, and I picked up Spark of Insanity, which is the Jeff Dunham DVD I didn't yet have.

Yesterday, [livejournal.com profile] lilbearmi skipped out on going to Fest (due to this thing called hurricane remnants coating the entirety of Michigan in torrential rain and causing Fest to close early anyway) and visited us and we watched I'm the One I Want again and the .Tivo file I have of Legally Blonde: The Musical. And I made taco-beefy-cheddar-penne. Yes, it's as unhealthy as it sounds. Yes, it tastes as good as it sounds. The visit did prompt a manic "clean the apartment in under 90 minutes" event wherein we did exactly that. And then had a brief argument (okay, slightly more than brief and slightly more than an argument) about keeping up with the housework. Heh. Granted, this conversation tried to happen in the middle of my Virgo Moment™ and annoyed me. :-p But it was ultimately productive and we all felt much better after. :)

And, now, I'm back at work. And now I'm going to get back to it. My inbox is positively freaking out.

Okay, so, like, yesterday I was supposed to be all good and domestic and make my apartment more presentable for everyone showing up on Saturday (which is now a scary number of people, I'm just sayin') and I did very very little of it.

If any of y'all see me online tonight before 10pm eastern time, tell me to go clean my house. :-p Seriously. It shouldn't take me more than two hours to get everything presentable, and I know there are things I'll be doing tomorrow when I get home and I'll do my vacuuming Saturday morning, but still.

Someday I shall have to kill [livejournal.com profile] rubicontiger. Really. He got me addicted to something that should not be named. IT IS ENTIRELY HIS FAULT. I may be gay, but I'm not THAT gay.

Anyrate. Monday I'll take the Xbox in and be all "OH HAI, REPAIR PLZ don't lose my saved games".

I'm ready for my vacation now. Really.

Apparently Daniel does not like being off his meds. Or off his food. One of the two. *sigh*

Last day of the three day weekend! And only a few more days until my birthday party! I am determined to enjoy myself even if [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi has to work and is likely to be anti-social when he gets home. He said it was okay to have the party, just not to get mad at him if he's cranky. :-p Turns out, he may have a co-worker whose attitude gives a couple former co-workers of ours a run for their money, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

Gonna go beat Too Human, I think.

It is going to be so weird when I get home tonight. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi will be at work, [livejournal.com profile] rubicontiger will be at an appointment. It'll be me and the cats. THIS IS NOT NORMAL!!! I suppose I could use the time to make sure I have everything written down that I'll need for my birthday shindig on the 6th, or I could play Too Human. Decisions decisions.

I'm not used to cooking for less than three people now. Heh. I was halfway through making dinner last night when I was like "Oh, yeah, not everyone is here". Too late! I just ate more instead. x_x

Well, not much else to write about right now. So I'll get back to work.
jdotmi: (Shower Fresh)
Well, I didn't win the mega millions last night. *is sad*not really So the 9 to 5 slog (er, 8 to 5) continues for me. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi has his first full day of work today, so here's to hoping that goes well.

[livejournal.com profile] rubicontiger got ill yesterday so we had to go home early. He's feeling much better now, though. He wound up sleeping for a long while after we got home.

There is a filtered party planning post below this one. I posted a poll yesterday for anyone interested in attending. I have added a couple people to the filter that haven't responded yet because I've either a)talked to you about the party already or b)your ass is attending one way or the other. ^_^

Too Human continues to be awesome. Civilization IV continues to eat my brain. The world continues to turn and my hair and nails continue to grow. All in all, not too bad.

Oh! Hey, if you want to get me a birthday present, I wouldn't say no to WoW and City game time cards. I'm just sayin'...
jdotmi: (pr0n)
I'm turning 30 on September 7th, y'all! That means local folk need to come over. Plans must be made! Now, I'm not a crazy party person, in all honesty. I'd much rather have friends over to eat, hang out, watch movies, and that's pretty well it. Unless someone else is paying, I'm so not going out for some birthday dinner and stuff like that.

So..

Good morning LiveJournal! So far, my vacation has been quite a success. Well, at least for me. :-p Saturday was movie day here. Didn't get too many people, but as it was we kinda didn't have as much space as I originally thought, so that wasn't too bad. Attendees included [livejournal.com profile] knottie, [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare, [livejournal.com profile] margaras, my coworker Charles (yes, that's his name) and his lady friend who has a really interesting name that I can't remember to save my life. :-p Charles accidentally left his tub of brownies here, so I'll be returning the tub when I return to work next week.

We started with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which was quite a success. The next movie we decided to watch was Clue, which is always a good thing. After that it was just [livejournal.com profile] margaras and [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare left here as everyone else had to depart, so we played two games of Clue (I only observed on the last game, I won the game I played), and then we all went to bed.

Sunday morning I woke up early and headed out to feed the cats. [livejournal.com profile] margaras was already awake so I sat out in the living room and chatted with him until [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare woke up. We then went into my room and I played some City of Villains and we all chatted. Then [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare web-browed while we chatted. A couple hours later, [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi got up and we all hung out and eventually played a game of Monopoly.

I started out the weakest (with one property of five different colors and no railroads or utilities), but wound up with all 4 railroads, a monopoly on the Forest Green properties (which I quickly built up) and eventually got a monopoly on the blue/grey properties. Oriental Avenue was the last property purcheased, and was purchased by me. My first hotels went there (and I pulled in lots of rent on those) and then I destroyed people when they landed on the newly hotel'd Pacific Avenue. [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare got bankrupted by [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi, and then [livejournal.com profile] margaras (despite an early cash lead) got bankrupted by me. Then [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi landed on my hotels and went bankrupt. [livejournal.com profile] margaras went home shortly after the game was over and [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare went home later in the evening.

We rearranged [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi's room last night as well. After having done my room a couple weeks ago he wanted to do his room. So now it is done! He was quite happy with it.

I think I am going to go play my baby Corruptor in CoV on Virtue now.

For those who are attending, directions and stuff. (You know, party stuff)

City of Heroes/Villains Issue 7 is on the Training Room server now. So far? It's fun. They need to get the optimization done soon or I won't actually test it much, however. It's like back in CoV Beta when I couldn't do an Arachnos Lab map because it was a slideshow.

Time to do work. Laters. :-p

  • Make a post pimping my movie night in case anybody didn't see it yesterday.

  • Close lots of cases at work. Don't laugh at me, I'm serious. :-p

  • Vacuum when I get home. Entire apartment again.

  • Take pictures and post of the new house/home business I built in The Sims 2 last night.

  • Make vaguely whiny reference to the fact that I made my ear bleed about five minutes ago.

And that's all.
