Not a bad weekend all in all, Friday night I ended up taking the 4×4 down to the Vernon Inn for a beer and some wings. As usual, NY did a crap job on the roads, and in NJ you could barely tell we had a major snowstorm. At the Inn, the lot was filled with 4×4’s, inside where plow drivers and the like – and we all watched in disbelief the show “My Big Redneck Wedding” on CMT. Not to mention, “Trick my Truck” aka Pimp my Ride for tractor trailers. I was only out for a little bit, but it was enough to shake off the cabin fever and clear my head.
Saturday was pretty uneventful, nearly burned the place down as my vacuum’s rotating brush jammed up, melted, and started dumping out a lot of really vile smelling smoke. Headed out to Wal-Mart to buy a new Hoover. I can’t believe how much crap this thing pulled out of my carpets. I thought my old one was decent, the new is a bag-less and the debris cup was nearly filled just by vacuuming the living room and bedroom. At this point I’m convinced my apartment just hemorages dust. After I got that cleaning out of the way, I tore apart my bedroom to start its annual cleaning, and then moved on to work on my brownie recipe. Added just the right amount of cayenne pepper – these are the best brownies I’ve ever made. After all that, I found my way to QXT’s down in Newark for an evening of drunken debauchery. That’s always tons of fun. The fact it was closed the prior night had it packed on Saturday, plenty of people and plenty of dancing. Just one thing though, the glow stick people, just give it up, you look stupid.
Sunday I kicked back, played some video games, and then proceeded to start shred-fest 2008. I basically pick a day and go through all my old documents, bank statements, etc… stuff I don’t need anymore – and shred the fuck out of them. Then spent a good couple hours cleaning my bedroom, living room and kitchen are next. Also had to put in some hours at the office, a stack of new layer-3 switches and a few programming updates that had to be done after hours.
Not a bad weekend, but I know i’m in trouble if I’m getting choked up at the end of Buffy season 2. Hoping the foggy brain and fake laughs will take their leave this week.
