A book filled week

Hello again,

Once more I’m going to have to apologize for the sincere lack of posts that continue to plague my blog.  My laptop is in the shop and needs a new hard drive, so I am currently on a spare computer at my house.  Classes start back up in two weeks or so and while I am excited to have all my friends back on campus I don’t know how I feel about have a six class semester.  I haven’t had a six class semester in a year.  I had a year and a half of full semesters and I have had my best grades in those semesters.  I’m hoping that the same trend will follow this semester.

Let’s see, what else is new is my life?  My boyfriend gave me my Christmas present yesterday.  He took me to this book store where everything was discounted and not only can you buy books, but you can also return books you’ve already read and get store credit.  I have a problem with buying too many books and this place is wonderful.  Stacked up to the ceiling with books upon books of all sorts of genres.  I adore it.  I have about ten books to read, plus a few to reread.  I’m hoping to finish the majority of them before school starts.

I’e also been perusing my menus to a healthier winter diet from my Seasonal Depression book.  Some of these recipes look really tasty, I am thinking about doing a few of them either at home or at school.  I can’t wait for that.  The diet in the book isn’t exactly a diet, but kind of is.  People with SAD, winter blues, or February Blahs, tend eat more carbs in the winter time, we crave them.  This diet doesn’t cut out carbs (cause that shit is crazy, I could not live without a bagel once in a while) but it helps limit them and find the right kind of carbs.  It’s really interesting.  🙂

Ah, yes, my epic evening out on Friday.  I have been wanting to say write this up for days, however, lack of a lap top means less writing for me.  So, on Friday I went and saw my friend Horsing Around in her band at bar.  She and the band were amazing!  She plays the violin, it is fantastic.  However, the band didn’t need her for all the song so she spent a lot of her down time mingling with her family and friends who had all shown up to support her.  I went with the boyfriend and Pretty in Pink.  She came over earlier and we had kind of a girly time watching House and doing nails and make up and hair and such.  I wore this great top that Amy Pond gave me, it’s got a band around the neck and it’s sleeveless and has a key hole above my cleavage and it has this funky red white and black floral pattern and it makes me look good.  I had that, my black back up boots (bar means most likely dirty, so older boots can take it) and some dark denim.  My boyfriend grabbed me while Pretty in Pink finished her make up and told me I looked beautiful.  I felt all warm and fuzzy after that.  He even lent me his leather jacket cause all I had was a little cropped silk one.  So we get to the bar and find a spot towards the upper half of it, closer to the stage.

Now, here’s comes the fun part.  Horsing Around is really good friend with my ex.  And, that’s fine by me.  It’s because of my ex that Horsing Around and I are friends.  However, when she invited me to this concert, she explicitly told me that he and his new girlfriend would be there.  She knows me well enough to know that I would never start something on her night.  My ex thought I’d get super wasted and try to hurt his precious little girlfriend.  Ha, ha ha, and I thought my jokes were bad.  So we get there and I watch to see if he arrives, all the while sipping at my single drink of the night.  He does show up and after confirming it’s him in the back half of the bar, I turn and face the stage or talk to my boyfriend.  I refuse to make contact with him the entire night.

My boyfriend, sweetheart that he is, spent the entire night next to me.  He held me, kissed me, whispered in my ear and held me up so I could take pictures of the band.  Perfectly dutiful.  He does that normally, but there was a possessiveness in the bar. He wanted to make my ex see that I had moved on, especially since my boyfriend and my ex have some history.  It was wonderful.  I may be kind and sweet to those I love, but cross me once and I will be a vengeful bitch.  My ex left early and my night was fantastic.  I made a few new friends and made plans for Pretty in Pink’s birthday.

Ahhh, that’s better.  Finally got all of that out in writing.

So, today, I shall try and post another  prompt and perhaps a picture of two.

What a fantastic night poem

Identification shown at the door, burly man lets him, her, me inside

The bass is pounding, I feel it underneath the soles of my boots

As well as underneath my skin, it pulsates, bringing me to life


Once in the establishment, we wander, I look in amazement

After all it is my first time in a bar, a real, true, bar

It’s loud and bright and dark and perfect all at once, beautiful.


We find seats, tall, near the windows, snowflakes drift intermittently

She goes and orders us drink, two vampires.  I’ve never had one

It’s sweet and sour and sinful and I sip it through the straw


He order jack and coke, classic, masculine, manly in comparison

To the vodka, raspberry liquor, and cranberry juice we have

Giggling, I’m tipsy.  I laugh and move to the music


She is drinks her first fast, but the second slowly

His drink is gone after her first, but he downs her second

I sip slowly, enjoying the tang, the sensation, the warmth



While the drink is cold, I am warm and silly

My hands are still and shaking, too cold to easily

Fingers brush against denim that is not mine


Apologizing, he says not to worry. Tipsy, I look down

Flushing, I look back to see that she has returned

And is preparing to leave. I frown, but agree


Climbing into the back of the truck, I reminisce

Spontaneity, her, scruffy easy, him

What a night to take my problems off my mind

What a fantastic night!

So, my day had been a little strange.  Just long and I was tired and I felt like doing nothing.  Since my laptop doesn’t like to work in my apartment, I couldn’t stay in my room and do homework.  So I was writing and trying to be creative when my friend texts me.

She asks if I want to go out for a drink.  I don’t have to pay and I don’t have to drive.  I’M IN!

It was a great night.  She brought a friend along and I had not met him, but had heard of him.  He was super sweet and kind of cute in an Opie Winston from Sons of Anarchy way.  I had a vampire and we talked and listened to music and I was so happy.  I felt so ok and happy and legal!

It was wonderful.

Then, to make my night even better, I got hugs from both of them (I am a big hugger.) I also found out that I had a hundred likes on my blog.

THANK YOU BLOGGERS!  You are who made this possible.  Thank you.

Thank you Lord for an amazing night.  I needed it.

Tomorrow, lots of homework, horseback riding, and eventually, sleep.
