Things I've Learned this Weekend

Had the official "bridal" bridal shower. Things went fairly smoothly. Food, present, and well wishes. I couldn't have asked for more. It was fun and fabulous. I can handle small talk with people I don't know. It's especially easy when they're showing up to support you or your future husband.

Pitch is not, I repeat, is not like Spades. I do not take Dave's instructions very well. In fact, I found them quite offensive. I'll work on that for our future, but for now, Pitch is not like Spades. Hmph.

I'm trying to make a baby blanket. I've started one particular section 3 or 4 times. It may not be done by this Saturday. I won't admit to myself that it'll be impossible to do because I'm trying to prove my mother wrong. Weird at 26 that I'm still doing things just because she says not to.

Rachel and I have some how gotten two different emails going to each other at the same time containing entirely different conversations. We're pretty talented.

I'm ready for March. I'm ready for Spring. I think I've been VERY patient. I'm done. I want my sun and warmth.

  1. I've started taking step classes. It's been one week as of yesterday and I consider myself a pro. I might start teaching the class.
  2. I have a grown up bridal shower tomorrow. I call it this because it is Dave's mom's friends and some of my family. The only friends of mine attending are the bridal party which is required to attend (? I guess, I didn't force them but they all said they were coming).
  3. I'm trying to resist the urge to completely chop off my hair. I think I have this urge because I'm growing it out for the wedding. I can't do extension because B. Spears has ruined that look for anyone.
  4. I have so much stuff to do and I can't force myself to do it. I don't know what's wrong with me. I think I'm actually becoming a bride because I'm freaking out about the invitations (mainly because, they're not ordered and we can't find envelopes). Sounds cheesy but its true. People may get an evite.
  5. A friend is doing the cake, but I think I'm still going to look at bakeries, just in case they don't come through. Although I saw these awesome sugar cookies, decorated as wedding cake. Can I get away with that?
Off to step class!

Brit Brit

Dear Britney,

Are you trying to start a new trend? Psychotherapy as the new rehab? It isn't catching on and frankly making you look like a crazy whore. You checking in and out medical hospitals to receive treatment does not make it look like you're stable.

In case you didn't notice, "doing it for the kids" is not the best slogan to use when checking yourself into a psych ward. Try things like "Not quite a woman, not yet sane" or "Oops I have MPS"

Also, on the note of your manager drugging you. I call bullshit. I'm calling you out because I doubt anyone twisted your little arm to make you swallow any said pill.

One those notes, go back to the psych ward. Stay for more than 4 days and make it at least "appear" that you're trying.

Ding Dang.

I voted and got the sticker

Just in case people were wondering, Oklahoma's "I voted" stickers are not the same as those in other places. How do I know? I saw them in Florida and they are much larger. Does the size of your sticker indicate the value of your state? Probably.

Back from Orlando. Had a wonderful time. No pics, sorry. Had horrible traveling experiences. On the way to Orlando my flight in Tulsa was delayed 3 hours which of course made me miss the connect to Orlando. Here's our conversation:

Ticket counter lady: "yep, you missed it. Here's your voucher to a hotel. We got you a distressed passenger discount. Call the shuttle they'll come pick you. Thank you."
Me: There are no other flights?


Me: No one is leaving after 8:30, not even on another airline?

TCL: Would you like you're hotel voucher?

Me: You're not going to look?

TCL: No.

So I got to spend the night in dallas.

On the way back to Tulsa, our flight in Dallas got cancelled. What?! So instead of the 12:40 flight they wanted to put us on the 7:50 flight. Eff that. Thank god I was with my boss who got a Southwest flight.

However, we had major baggage issues. So I didn't get my bag till the next day. Conversation with baggage service lady:

BSL: Here's the 1-800 number
Me: For what?
BSL: To file your claim
Me: Don't you do that?
BSL: I'm suppose to. But for you I'm not going to.
Me: But why?
BSL: Because today is my 12th anniversary with this airline and I've earned the right to not file one effing claim. Got it!
Me: So you're not going to file my claim, but make me call a call center when you could just easily do it with the computer in front of you?
BSL: Next!

I got my bag the next day.
