the three-day celebration

I had the idea that my boss had canceled weekly meeting I have with him and one of our vendors every Thursday at nine in the morning. He had actually canceled the meeting for next week, because he was going to be in London.

I didn’t realize this, until I went to work at my normal time today, and Outlook gave me the message that my meeting was three hours overdue. The vendor was emailing wondering why didn’t have the meeting, but my boss replied saying that he couldn’t be there. Lucky me. I was off the hook with that one. I seriously thought he had canceled the one today and figured this would be one of my best weeks ever.

Actually, it kind of is. Work has not been stressful at all. I feel like I was so underworked this week that I’d stay up way too late punching away on the keyboard. I definitely didn’t get enough sleep a couple nights this week, and it made me dog tired the next day. I couldn’t even get myself out of bed this morning. I woke up at eight this morning with the intention of going in at nine anyway, but I couldn’t shake the sleep out of me. I went back to bed for a few more hours and went in at twelve.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I gave myself a present by cashing in eight hours of my hard-earned PTO to not go to work. I don’t have much to do tomorrow anyway, so it should be fine. I know for sure that I’ll be sleeping in. I also know that it’s payday, and I will be visit Mini’s to get a long overdue haircut. I seem to do that often… neglect getting my hair cut. I guess it goes with the fact that I don’t like to shave.

I don’t know what else I’m going to do during the day. Maybe I’ll have some time to catch up on my comic-reading. Speaking of which, K$ and I are getting back into the comic-creating, so my crappy art and his marvelous writing will see the light again! That’s all I’m going to say about that until our project comes to fruition.

Last night, Mare & I watched Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. I enjoyed it. I enjoy pretty much everything that Judd Apatow has something to do with.

Mare is currently baking my birthday cake. My weekend birthday celebration has been planned a little something like this:

  • Friday night: Trudy’s for my free Mexican martini
  • Saturday evening: Barbecue at Neil’s, plenty of friends, burgers, bratwurst, and a keg of beer
  • Sunday: Salt Lick in Driftwood for more barbecue!

YES!! It’s all gonna r0ck!

I don’t usually celebrate my birthday, but I guess it was about time I did for once. Plus, Neil hasn’t had a party at his house yet and now is the time. We’ll be grilling on his new grill and having a good time. I hope most of the people that were invited show up, so we can all have fun.
