There were all these things I wanted to write about -- the Como Zoo trip Friday afternoon with The Boy I Currently Like, The National show at First Ave on Friday night with Law Talkin' Gal, my cousin's wedding shower Saturday and of course, the primary election tomorrow. But it's like, almost 9:30 and I have dishes to wash and a shower to take. Can I sum it all up in one post?
The zoo was a lot of fun. I'd not been to Como Zoo since I was in elementary school, if I remember correctly. This was the first public outing for me and The Boy, believe it or not. I mean, there was the New Year's party. That wasn't public, however. And once, we walked over to Pizza Luce to get our pizza. But that's it.
Friday night, The National at First Ave was most excellent. I feel a bit sheepish for avoiding their live shows for so long. I thought they'd be boring. But I was so very wrong. It had been too long since I'd been to a show with Law Talkin' Gal, as well. It's nice to have her back.
The wedding shower Saturday sapped my will to live. Even booze didn't help. But the booze was in the form of mimosas, which is such a typical lady brunch drink it made me want to hurl. I normally love spending time with my aunties, but this was awful. Nothing but talk of dresses and wedding shit. I don't know why all of this is bothering me so much now (perhaps because of all the wedding shit I have to do for my brother's wedding?), but it's absolute fucking torture. I hated every second of it.
What else? I did get to spend Saturday night with The Boy. So, I did eventually get over all the shower bullshit. We hung out two days in a row and it was absolutely delightful. Look at us, being all normal and shit. It's crazy.
And oh yes, the primary election tomorrow. I'm still waffling on my DFL choice for governor. It's a difficult decision for a number of reasons that I'd get into now if this post wasn't already so long and if I still didn't have all that shit to do tonight. Maybe tomorrow after I vote I'll write about it. Probably not, but you never know, right?
