Bangs! Sort of! Also a rumpled
What a spectacularly uneventful
weekend it's been. Thursday night I had a spat with JB where
I told him he had acted obnoxiously the last time he had attended
a post-Workplace Friday night outing. (Well, he HAD. He continually
pestered my coworker Brian about his new girlfriend, demanding
to know if Brian had "sealed the deal" or not. I think
he was channeling his Inner Frat Guy.) Therefore JB got all snotty
and said fine, if that's the way I felt, I could just go out
by myself this Friday. And then Workplace plans didn't pan out,
so while JB was hoisting beers all night with his work
friends, I was planted in front of the TV all by my lonesome.
So that was Friday.
Saturday I cleaned the house
and went shopping at Half Price Books. That
was it, basically.
Oh yeah, and we rented Insomnia. My god, have you ever really
noticed how enormously weird Robin Williams's nose is?
Today I - wait, I can't go
on. This is too boring even for MY journal. Shit. Let's say that
this happened, instead:
Fed up with the November
gloom, we decide to take our private jet to Cozumel for the weekend.
We load up with a case of LeGrande Dame and take turns coming
up with silly toasts while a trio of exquisitely dressed trapeze
artists perform a silent, complicated routine for us during the
flight. Once we arrive, I head to Muchas Skintastica!, the world-famous
spa, for a sea salt body scrub followed by a full body massage
and just a *hint* of Botox. Refreshed, I meet JB at our favorite
pan-asian-caribbean-aborigine restaurant and we dine on peacock
tongues submerged in a mango/licorice bath. We stroll the beach
after dinner and gasp in surprise - the luxury hotel we are staying
at has arranged for several hundred phosphorescent jellyfish
to spell out our names in the shallow water.
We're leaving tomorrow and
heading south, to visit friends in Eugene and then spend Thanksgiving
in Coos Bay with JB's family. Later alligator, after while crocodile,
have a wonderful l-tryptophane-loaded holiday.

Listen, I am not a complete dick, it's not like I want Joe to die alone surrounded by cats or something. - 12.23.2004
