Babies, booze and a weekend recap

This weekend, I:

  • Watched my boss's high-five attempt turn into a sloppy bitch slap at our holiday party. Luckily, the child she smacked was unfazed. The rest of us, however, just about died in a fit of hysterics.
  • Learned that two of my friends are going to be daddies! On purpose! Ahhh, I'm so excited!!!
  • Consulted the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar and determined that one friend is having a boy, one is having a girl. (Who needs an ultrasound?) The one who is having a girl can no longer tell Dave "BROS BEFORE HOES" every time he sees him.
  • Learned that Dave has been on Twitter for a few months, despite the fact that he could not stop ridiculing the rest of us who've been on there. I think my trust is broken...
  • Bought tons of Christmas/Hanukkah presents for my family and thus felt quite pleased with myself until I remembered that there was NO discussion of a Christmas bonus at my work party. Hey, thanks for keeping us in the loop on that one.
  • Drank lots of wine and learned even more about it:

(pictures stolen from Ang)
  • Started reading book 4 of the Twilight series, simply because I was told there was sex in it. After seeing the horrible movie, I've had a tough time making it through the books without picturing the complete retardation that I witnessed on screen. Hoping this will be different.
  • Discovered that the "Christmas tree" my mom mailed to me is actually a rosemary plant that she calls "Dave's Hanukkah tree." I've mentioned she's weird before, right?
  • Realized that this is my last week of work before Christmas!
  • Realized that my birthday is 5 days away. I have very mixed feelings about this. Maybe I'll get into that later. (Though you other December babies already know the feeling.)

That was my weekend. How was yours?

Secret Twitter! I hope your relationship can make it through this trying time.

My mom did the rosemary plant as a gift for everyone she knew one year. Very odd.

Your boss bitch slaps babies now? And here I thought MY being around children was dangerous.

surviving myself said...

You're reading more Twilight just because of sex in it???

You do know there's a thing called "porn" right?

I'm loving this brown bag covered wine night deal that you guys do!
Sounds like so much fun!

Overcoat: Thanks, we're going to try to work through it. Therapy should help.

Rebecca: Good to know that my mom isn't the only strange one.

Rachel: BIG woo hoo for wine time. :-)

HP: She only bitch slaps kids when she's drunk, I think.

Erin: I don't discriminate either.

Surviving Myself: What is this "porn" you speak of? And the book sex is totally different because there were 3 books filled with sexual tension. Book 4 was supposed to be the pay off. SUPPOSED to be.

Ringleader: It was our first one, but it went really well!!
