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! 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. winterlady
, and kidlet came as expected, bearing gifts of fudge, pie, and a WoW time card! eligrrl
and her boyfriend came. She even brought White Cheddar Cheez-its, which are one of the best snack foods EVER. 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 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
, 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 lilbearmi
's place on Monday and watched The Producers
(musical version). 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.
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.
