IF YOU LIKE CORONORITA’S AND GETTING STUCK IN THE RAIN…

20180519_185843.jpg

We had a fun weekend. On Saturday, we met up with some friends for a local dinner. We then made our way down the street to visit a townie bar in my city. Andy keeps calling me a townie to get a rise out of me. It was working. I don’t have a problem with living back in my hometown, I prefer it over where I was living before. I just have a certain definition of a townie in my mind, and I’m not it. I always picture a townie as someone who has never left their city/town, frequents the local bars, probably has a beer gut, possibly a mullet, drives an I-ROC, and always speaks highly of their “glory days” in high school. I only live here and I do hang out at the local bars at times. But it will be a cold day in hell I ever grow a mullet! 

When we got to the other bar to watch the game, I immediately spotted 5 people I graduated with. I wasn’t popular, or unpopular in high school. I pretty much swam the waves of mediocrity, haha. So I don’t expect  many people to remember me from high school, unless we were friends or acquaintances. So I was a bit surprised when someone remembered me. He and I chatted for a bit and it was good to catch up! Too bad the Celtics lost though.

On Sunday, I stopped by my parents house to wish my dad a happy birthday. I also owed my mom a ride in my new Jeep. So we went for a cruise around the block.  Andy and I caught a late afternoon showing of Deadpool 2 but we got soaked by a passing rain storm on the way in, but the movie was hilarious! I definitely recommend it.

JUST CALL ME VIOLET

Over the weekend, we celebrated Andy’s birthday. We went to Abe & Louie’s, and had a great steak dinner. We went with Ginny, Derek, and Brian. We ordered a TON of sides, and they were all delicious. We had some calamari, lobster mac and cheese, mushrooms, creamed spinach, and their bread rolls. I opted to get the Delmonico cut steak with cheddar cheese add on. It was delicious! I usually get filet, but I wanted to branch out. I ate too much, and blew up like Violet Beauregarde. Thankfully, Ginny is a hero and carries pepto in her purse, it really made me feel better.

After dinner, we went to Bond for drinks. It was surprisingly quiet there. Last time we went was right after my friends wedding, and the place was hoppin’. We saw a lot of hookers at the bar. There were none around this time, bummer! It’s always good people-watching.

A SUITE TIME

We got randomly invited to attend a Celtics game in a suite. The only drawback, I couldn’t go to my friends birthday paint night. I wanted to show up for a little bit, but I guess they open up the suite area early and they wanted us to arrive together. Andy was none too pleased that he couldn’t attend, as he is a much bigger Celtic’s fan than I’ll ever be. But it was people from work, so I could not get a plus one.

I haven’t gone to a suite in the Garden before, only the Red Sox. It was pretty similar experience. Each one has a private bathroom, free (to us) food (even sushi!), and booze. There is also seating in the front to watch the game, and some TV’s as well. Although, I don’t know if anyone actually watches the TV’s. Pretty awesome experience!

I stuffed myself with food and drinks while watching the game. A couple of us did end up leaving a little early, since it was a weeknight. I guess we probably should have stayed till the bitter end (and paid a ton in Uber surge fees, and sit in traffic on the pike for over an hour), since they ended up winning at the last second. Also, Andy was annoyed to see that I left before the game ended. I guess I’m not that good of a sports fan, hahaha!!

CALM DOWN, WILFORD BRIMLEY!

My friend and I took our annual casino trip over the weekend. It was also an inaugural trip with my fancy new Jeep. We wanted to get some pizza from Mystic Pizza, but it was not in the cards (so to speak). We usually plan these trips in April. Apparently in May is when all the people come crawling out of the woodwork, and take all of the parking spots in Mystic. RUDE. I’m sure even if we did find a spot, the wait for pizza would have been very long anyway. So we gave up and made our way to Mohegan. We were planning on going there anyway, but now were going for food as well.

The good news, I finally got to try Hash House a Go Go. I’ve been meaning to try them for years, as there are two on the Vegas strip. But now I got to try them at a closer locale! The food was really good, but also huge. To the point where some of the dishes look like a puzzle you have to figure out how to eat.

After Mohegan, we made our way to the hotel to unwind and get ready for dinner and shopping at Foxwoods. It was Cinco de Mayo weekend, so festivities were in full swing. When we got to the hotel, we had to stand in line to check in. This is where a very cranky Willford Brimley-like man in the lobby. He complained about the traffic. We sat in it as well, but don’t hear us complaining about it to people who don’t give a damn about your life story in line. He (of course) held up one of the desk attendants, with his various room requests. Buddy, it’s a fucking DAYS INN, save your laundry list of room requirements for the Ritz-Carlton! He was very adamant about having a non-smoking room, didn’t even want the room near the smoking rooms. This detail is key. The poor attendant even LEFT THE DESK to check the room was clean and didn’t smell like smoke. 

We finally got checked in, by the other guy manning the desk. Since the first guy was busy making sure Wilford Crankyass, was all set with his fucking budget room. We got unpacked and ready for dinner at the other casino. I am feeble-minded and accidentally set the Uber to send us to the wrong casino. Thankfully my friend was paying attention, and I was able to change the destination. Ooops! Once we got there, we put our name in for dinner. But the guy wanted us to check back in a few minutes with him, when he had his iPad back. This was fine, except 30 seconds later, a huge swarm of people descended upon the host station like some biblical locust shit. We had to yell at people that tried to cut in front of us when confirming our reservation was set in the official iPad. Some people even had to be reminded, TWICE.  Yes, we are in fact, in front you in line so shut your pie hole! Casino people are so rude. Thankfully after that, we didn’t encounter any more line-cutters. We enjoyed some shopping, food, sombreros, and drinks.

Let’s cut to the next day. We both didn’t sleep great, so we opted to get the free breakfast at the hotel. All was fine, until Wilford Crankyass (surprisingly) still cranky, made his appearance. He cut off a few people waiting for the waffle-maker. Nobody said a word. Like what?! To add insult to injury, he also proceeded to make THREE WAFFLES.  What is this guys deal? Incredibly rude and self-centered. I can only assume he isn’t married, as I can’t imagine a person that could possibly tolerate him. Or maybe he ate his wife long ago, when she got too close to the waffle maker? Jury is still out on that. After breakfast, we packed up and headed home. However, we noticed ol’ Wilford in the parking lot, smoking a cigarette. I kid you not, the man who was bitching about a non-smoking room.

NO THANKS, SKYNET!

Capture

I picked up my new car yesterday, and I love it!! It’s going to take some getting used to, I’ve never owned an SUV before. I usually stick with sedans when I get a car. But I decided the time has come for something bigger. I didn’t realize the model I got comes with park assist. The salesperson at the dealership was trying to show me how to use it. I felt so UNCOMFORTABLE with this feature. It just freaks me out, so I will probably not use it. Not today, Skynet!

HELLO BLOG, IT’S ME.

tenor

I have been really bad about blogging as of late. It’s been a busy few months and I kinda forgot that this blog existed. Ooops! But fret not, I’m going to try to make an effort to do more blogging, but it will likely be shorter posts. I just want to get my moneys worth with the domain name. Haha!

I meant to blog a couple weeks ago, with a honeymoon recap. But that sounds very daunting right now. So I’ll get to it when I can. For now, I am have some exciting news. I am getting a new car tomorrow!!! I’m very pumped. I’m taking the afternoon off to pick it up, because apparently I like to visit car dealerships that are in inconvenient locations. Andy is tagging along as well. I’ll be sure to post pics when I have it in my possession. I’m also taking it on an inaugural weekend trip to the casino.

R.I.P. MONEY AND NAIL

20180306_084226.jpg

The weekend was solid. I had to move my Friday night plans, due to do a hurricane-like storm that they keep using overly exaggerated weather terms like “bomb cyclone” to describe. Don’t even get me started on that, I’m sure I could write a series of posts on how that term really gets under my skin. I mean, the storm did a lot of damage to the coast, as it coincided with the high tides. But still, let’s stop making up crazy weather terms. Don’t go chasin’ bomb cyclones, just call them storms or hurricanes like we’re supposed to.  MOVING ON, Andy and I had a very belated Valentine’s Day steak dinner at Abe & Louie’s in Boston. We’re not Valentine’s Day people, but any excuse for a steak dinner, we’re on board. So we ventured there on Saturday night. I got the surf & turf with a filet mignon topped with crab. It was delicious! Afterwards, we went out for some more drinks. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we got our taxes done and got screwed because we’re married. Fun! We should get our marriage annulled for the tax break. Also, Andy’s car died in the parking lot at the tax place. So we had to get it towed. The steak was a real saving grace for us. Praise Jebus for steak!

On Sunday, we went to see Black Panther. It was really good! But we were stuck behind some family that thought it would be a grand idea to take all 14 toddlers to a PG-13 movie. Don’t worry folks, there is a special place in hell reserved for these kind of people that don’t understand how toddlers work and think they will sit thru a 135 minute movie meant for adults. There is also a special place in hell for the old man that decided he needed to loudly narrate the whole fucking movie to the theater as it was happening.

Oh yeah, I injured my toe a few months back. (If you get grossed out easily, you best stop here!) Not entirely sure how I injured it. But I think it had to do with wearing these very cute, but extremely uncomfortable shoes to Boston Comic Con over the summer.  I got a blister on the middle toe of my left foot. I don’t think it ever fully went away, until it recently popped. I guess the fluid went under my nail. I thought the stain on the nail would just grow out after a while. Not so much. My nail FELL OFF since a new nail is growing back. I’ve never had this happen before and I’m thoroughly freaked out/grossed out. My question is, why couldn’t my pinky toe be sacrificed to the nail gods instead?! That I could deal with a bit better. 

It doesn’t look as bad as I would envision something like this looking, but it sucks. It doesn’t hurt or anything, which is a plus. But it’s just very frustrating that it’s going to take over a year to grow back. I have my honeymoon coming up. So I’ll have to wear a band-aid over it. I also can’t take nail vitamins, as biotin breaks out my skin. So I’ve been using  keratin oil on it twice a day, hoping it will help it grow. I also have been keeping it covered up just in case. Not sure what else to do at this point. Does Lee make press on nails for your feet? hahaha
