Hit a bad spot last night. Called my system into play, and thankfully [livejournal.com profile] okcountrygirl was available to talk. Doing better this morning.

Frustrated because I fell in love with a dress on eBay and was going to buy it for The Longest Night Ball but the bidding has gone higher than I was willing to spend, so now have to come up with plan B. If I were more confident in my sewing skills, I'd make myself something, but I just don't know if I'm up to evening wear. Garb is one thing, evening wear is another. Still, I'm going to go look at patterns to see if I can find anything I think would suit and be within my skill set. I just really don't want to wear garb or a dress I already have. Yeah, technically I could wear the black cocktail dress I wore to Kim's wedding/ RENT, but I'm vain enough that I'd like something new when going to an event where everyone else will be dressed to the nines.

Had Smog's birthday party yesterday, and it was a lot of fun. Took him and a couple of his friends to play laser tag at Laser Quest in Tulsa. Great place...very enthusiastic employees...just a blast. One of the boys' mother wound up coming and hanging around with me. While the boys were in for their first run (I bought them two runs each), she and I decided it looked like so much fun that we added ourselves to the second run. I had never done laser tag before...it's a great workout, even though you aren't supposed to run. You get to chose code names and everything. Since I had been joking with one of the employees about Twilight (he asked if I liked it, I replied that I did, he fired a toilet paper gun at me, I joked that I had breasts and was obligated to like it, he fell down behind the counter in hysterics) I chose the code name Fang, just to further pick on him. Too funny! I'd definitely like to get a group together later this winter and go do laser tag again. It's $8 a person per run, and you'll really want to go twice, but I think they have group rates if we can get enough people interested. Sometime after the holidays, expect a laser tag outing. I took the boys for pizza at Pizza Hut afterwards, and then we went home, dropping off boys as we went.

Shortly after we got home, one of Smog's neighborhood friends came over and asked if he could spend the night. I allowed it, and considered going over to Stillwater to see New Moon, but I figured the theater would still be crowded and I'd like to wait until the crowds die down a bit.

Had a second date Friday night with a local guy named Alex. I'm still not sure where it is going, but we had a good time and I think we are going to see each other again. And that's about all I'm going to say about that at this time.

The next couple of days will mostly be spent in preperation for my trip to Texas this coming week. Going to be a long drive and a busy weekend, but a lot of fun, hopefully. We need to get our TRF tickets ordered, so we need to determine how many days we are going. Must talk to [livejournal.com profile] ladyniniane about that.

I'm trying to decide if I'm coing up to Pub Night tonight. On one hand, I REALLY want to see [livejournal.com profile] the_jenny_of_oz...it's been way too long. On the other hand, I'm so freaking exhausted. After talking with [livejournal.com profile] okcountrygirl last night, I went and laid down and pulled the blanket up over my shoulders and was asleep before I could turn off my bedside lamp. It was more like passing out than sleeping, and it wasn't incredibly restful. The night before, I slept well and hard, but not nearly long enough, as Smog woke me up at 7 am to talk about some commercial he'd seen on TV (he almost didn't make it to his own birthday party.) I'm trying to decide if I'm up for a third late night in a row.

And that's what's going on with The Bob. What's going on in your world?

Having attempted life in the traditional convent for one whole day, I'm now planning my escape.

You see, there are just too many things on the outside I would miss...like this:

Picture behind here...mildly non-worksafe, if your job frowns on women sharing grapes )

Muchos gracias to [livejournal.com profile] verminiusrex for the picture of myself and the stunning [livejournal.com profile] radcliffe...can you believe we had met less than 10 minutes before this picture was taken? Yeah, I love faire.

Thanks to everyone for your comments earlier. It truly would have been a much less funny situation had D not been the wonderful, generous person she is. I can almost laugh about it without blushing furiously. Almost.

In an interesting turn of events, I decided to wear my new Native Earth ghillies to work today, having decided that if I was going to be inserting my foot into my mouth, it might as well be shod in new shoes. They were declared by my various coworkers to be "Awesome!", "Comfortable looking.", and "Sexy!" None of them had ever seen ghillies before...which always strikes me as funny. Wore them with a full skirt in chocolate brown and a cute little fitted top...and I felt sexy and feminine...must wear skirts to work more often once I escape the convent.

And I can't resist sharing one of my very favorite pictures of the handfasting between [livejournal.com profile] thebruce and [livejournal.com profile] rowangolightly that I attended on Sunday evening, because it so captures them...it is the essential Brusi in one brief moment captured on camera and snagged with permission and thanks from [livejournal.com profile] 5rings.

How Bruce and Susi will always be in my mind. )

Well, the bells have just rung for Vigils, and I'm going to try to make a break for it while they are distracted. I've knotted my brassiers into a fairly sturdy rope and have tied it to the bedpost (not really my favorite thing to have tied to bedposts, but I digress.)

Am leaving behind a stack of medieval romance books (read:porn) and a pink jelly vibrating egg for the sisters unfortunate enough to be left behind to remember me...may they be inspired to even greater things!

*sings "I Refuse To Be A Nun" in the style of [livejournal.com profile] maidens_whymsie*

We are founding our own order: The Order of the Flaming Leopard Panties (so named by [livejournal.com profile] fyreseer). Novitiates now being accepted.

(My humble apologies to anyone offended by my silly sense of humor. I need to let loose today, and this is the form it is taking. Bear with me?)
