Do you ever find yourself not liking someone and then you end up defending them? I found myself in this situation this past weekend and it felt very odd.
There is this girl that sometimes comes around our circle of friends and to be honest she just gets on my nerves. The moment she opens her mouth I just want to put in ear plugs. I don't feel bad about this one bit. I don't think that everyone is meant to get along that is just unnatural! I'm not mean to her or anything but seriously she is just annoying. I think it's because she says gems like this, "I'M SO FAT AND I JUST HAD BURGER KING! I COULD JUST DIE!" She said this while standing up clutching her size 0 waist. In the middle of a restaurant.
It was later on in the evening when she was going home that one of the guys noticed her walking to her car, which just so happened to be a very nice one, and he made some comment about how she just cashes the child support checks for herself. That's when I kind of lost it. Now I may have issues with this girl because she annoys the hell out of me, but I actually know her and she is a great mother She would do ANYTHING for her son. I turned on this guy so fast and kindly ripped him a new one. I told him that he has only met her ONCE and has NO IDEA what kind of mother she is so he can get off his moral high horse. I think I went off for a good 5 minutes till I calmed down.
I mean it really made me angry and I was surprised because I genuinely don't like this girl.
I realize that last week I only posted once and this week was just a short post as well and I apologize. Right now work is kicking my butt and I'm so busy I can barely keep my head above water. This weekend I think I will finally be able to catch my breath. I am working on a post that is obscenely long (at least for me) and I promise to put it up soon. Also on a side note I went to a baby shower tonight (do you find it strange to have a shower in the middle of the week or is that just me?) and two people told me I looked skinny! I about jumped for joy because I have lost about 15 pounds and it's always nice when someone notices. (Do you get annoyed when you lose weight and no one notices?) Wow I went on a long tangent. Um... here are some pretty pictures till my long post and to be honest I might have already posted some of these before but I'm too lazy to check.
I got hit on this weekend. BY A KID IN HIGH SCHOOL!
I volunteer with the youth at my church on Saturdays for the evening service and I really like it, but then a strange thing happened this weekend. It was the end of the youth service and my group is done (about 6 kids) and one of them asks for my phone number. I asked why he said well for prayer. I said well I can give you Kirsten's number who is youth organizer. He said I don't want her number I want your number! AND THEN HE ASKED ME HOW OLD I WAS! I told him I'm going to be 28, WHICH IS VERY CLOSE TO THIRTY! Then I asked him how old he was to show the age difference and he said well I'm 17 1/2. Don't you just love that he added the half.
Then he asked me if I was married! The kid would not give up. I told him it was never going to happen and to get out of here and I would see him next Saturday where I will be putting him at a table with one of our male leaders. Needless to say I will be staying far away from this kid because I don't think he gets the hint very easily.
After I left I immediately called several of my friends and left them the following message:
"I got hit on tonight... by a kid in school. I feel like Mary Kay Letourneau."
Yesterday I was talking with my cousin who is HILARIOUS and she was telling me a story about her mother that I knew I had to share with the Internet. It is my duty after all.
My cousin has decided to get her family in shape so she got her mother to join a gym. They both try to go three times a week but sometimes it doesn't work out and they go separately. Last week they missed Wednesday but were picking it back up on Friday and as my cousin went to meet her mom she noticed her gym bag. It was bright yellow and in big blue letters was the word VALTREX!
My cousin screamed mother what are you doing! You can't take that bag! Where did you get that? Oh my gosh do you even know valtrex that's a prescription drug. It's used for GENITAL HERPES MOM! My aunt started laughing and said no wonder everyone was looking at me funny. She had no idea.
My cousin said we obviously have to change gyms IMMEDIATELY.
I was working on this post throughout the day on Friday and I thought I hit publish, but apparently I hit the save to draft button. Oops!
It should be noted that I am I huge basketball fan. I love the Spurs, many people hate on my team and that is okay because we have won FOUR championships and I can gloat because my team is great! Last night I went to the game and it was during half-time that I witnessed something that made me physically ill, but before I get to that part I should set the scene.
As I have said before San Antonio is a military city and if you live here and you can pick out the people who are in the military. It's easy to pick them out even the ones that don't have the standard issue haircut. I tell you this because sitting next me at the game was a young Asian military guy in his early twenties and with him was his much younger brother. Behind me and a few seats over to me on the left was an older couple that were shouting and being completely annoying. The type of fans that yell at the ref THE ENTIRE game. They weren't using any kind of profanity but several times the older man used the P word. I HATE the P word. (you know rhymes with fussy)
During half time the young military guy very calmly turned around and asked the older man if he would mind keeping his voice down because his little brother was there as well as there was a toddler in the next row. The older man then starts yelling in face and said "I can do whatever the hell I want this is a public place!"
The young guy said, "I completely understand that sir. I'm just asking if you wouldn't mind just toning it down a little bit." Then the drunk wife gets involved.
She says, "I'm not saying anything I wouldn't say in front of my kids!"
It's at this point that something is said that I can't hear but it's something that older guy says and the wife drops this bomb in front of everyone and I quote. " Why don't you just go back to your own country!"
Military guy: "My own country? I'm an American soldier! I just got back from Iraq! Fighting in this war for you! To save this country!"
It was stunned silence.
Now I have to give credit to the military guy because I don't think I would have handled it as well as he did. He left after he shouted those at her. He probably would have gone off a lot more had his younger brother not been looking up at him. He probably would have cussed her out to be honest because how can you not when someone tells you something like that?
When he left everyone was just left looking at each other like did that just happen? After half time ended the military guy came back with his brother and I tapped him on the shoulder and I said, "I'm glad you came back because you shouldn't give that woman the satisfaction." He said, "Thank you."
The rest of the game seemed tainted even though we won. Several people tapped him on the shoulder throughout the rest of the game to show their support, but the damage had already been done.
I went to the doctor today because I still have a cough THREE WEEKS LATER! I was so thankful the doctor fit me into her schedule I didn't even mind waiting for an hour with only one magazine to read. It was while I was in the waiting room that I started coughing. Now this wasn't a major coughing fit just normal coughing when the nurse opens the door and I think she is going to call a patient's name when she walks over to me and hands me a mask! Everyone stars at me as if I really do have the black lung! I don't put it on but I do use to to cover my mouth when I cough but it's not like I was coughing with my mouth wide open aiming it at people seeing who I could infect with my germs. I wasn't raised in a barn.
Naturally I took a picture of myself when I got home.
For ten days in April San Antonio throws a city wide party called Fiesta its like a tamer version of Mardi Gras. My favorite part of this ten day fiesta is the King William Fair. The day starts off at 10am with the parade to end all parades! I think all you need to do is sign up to be in the parade. It just makes fun of them and it is AWESOME!
I PRESENT TO YOU PICTURES OF THE BEST PARADE EVER.
