Random Rambles

Pepper has Diarrhea!  Woo hoo!  Let’s all clap together now as I steam clean the shit out of some carpets.  No really.  I’m cleaning the shit out of some carpets.  I hate carpet.  When I’m living in a house that I own and one that doesn’t belong to the company I work for, I will have hardwood floors.  They are soooooo much easier to clean.  Cold feet be damned.

*SPOILER ALERT!  REGARDING TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF “ROME!”*

Ya’ll.  Tonight’s episode of Rome was awesome!  So violent and brutal but oh my God,
when Luceous found his kids, I ugly cried.  Dusty watched the episode and called me immediately after.  I think I’ve found another convert! (Jason!)  I was still crying when he called.  Damn, I love that show.  I think I love it even more now that I’ve actually been to Rome.

Less than one week and I’ll be back in NC!  Or actually on my way there.  No wait, I’ll be checking in at the airport more than likely because I have a red-eye that I’m catching at 1am out of Anchorage.  But I’ll officially be on vacation this time next week and I’m REALLY looking forward to it.

Superbowl Sunday was fabulous.  Well, what I remember of it.  Brian picked up a keg of Alaskan Amber while he was in town and brought it back with him on his plane.  I’m still a bit hungover.  I’m not even kidding.  The scary thing is, I blacked out.  It was my fault because I barely ate anything that entire day and Dusty and Howard said I was slamming the beers back like nobody’s business.  I was also drinking it out of a wine glass.  Go figure.  Just keep rolling your eyes.  I know.  But it really did scare me.  I’ve only blacked out two other times in my life and those blackouts were associated with my other two worst hangovers.  Yesterday was no exception. I spent from 4am to 8am wretching to the porcelein Gods.  Eventually I was dry heaving because I had nothing else to expel.  My body felt so dehydrated that I could barely stand up.  Being that sick scares the shit out of me.  It’s going to be a long time before I drink like that again.  Obviously this girl can’t hold her liquor.  Even if it is half a damn keg!

I can’t wait to be back in the south again.  I’m nervous about my family and all their drama but I’m craving the moist air, the sweetened iced tea, and hiking on Wilson’s Creek.  Mainly just getting out of here for a little while.  Not so much my town but just all the bad things that have been happening over the past month.  I’m more than ready!

I’m looking forward to skiing in the Atlas mountains in Morocco!

I’m looking forward to REAL Mexican food.  White cheese sauce that I can’t find anywhere but North Carolina.  This time, I’m asking the cute Mexican guy who owns the restaurant how they make that damn sauce.  It’s akin to crack.  I’ve no doubt that I will eat Mexican nearly every day while I’m there.  And that’s just fine with me.  I’m off the diet dammit because it’s my vacation!

I’m looking forward to seeing my friends who are all planning to meet up at my mother in law’s for our annual “Welcome home!” party.  Especially Julie because she needs a hug from her best friend.

I’m also looking forward to getting to bed right now because Lucky is whining for me from the bedroom.  It’s good to be loved.
