I put up a long update on Friday, since most of you checked back in on Wednesday and Thursday. Nothing much happened since Friday because Gitr’s creator became an old fogey.
Friday was a big surprise with going to Circe du Soleil! I took the day off and relaxed, spent 2 hours doing the blog, did laundry, and then was amazed by the sights, sounds, and humor of the show. I have no idea what was really going on with the story line because we didn’t spend $13 for the program. I’ll have to look it up later. Somehow I gathered that the guy and girl got married in the last 20 minutes. Why? I haven’t got a clue. I have to find out what was up with the lightbulb helmet dude.
Anyhooo… Saturday was more relaxing and getting ready for the Company Christmas Dinner/Dance. I had to go into town (drive into Tampa from the ‘burbs) to pick up my shirt from the tailor shop. I had the sleeves shortened and the sides brought in so it didn’t look like I was wearing a tent. Then I got a bright red silk tie at Wal-Mart, a new undershirt, and took my girlfriend her new 18K white gold necklace to go with her black dress for that evening. The dinner was great, kind of lonely, though. I was representing my department because no one else wanted to go, and I’ve only been her 5 months. I recognized people, but didn’t really have anyone to talk to, so we did a lot of people watching. 🙂
Sunday was rather cool for December and was rainy half the day, but I didn’t mind. My best bud got me a Barnes & Noble gift card (w00t!) and my parents a Circuit City gift card (double w00t). My girlfriend broke our birthday rule and got me something anyway. We made arrangements our first year that birthdays are for a special activity and dinner, no gifts allowed. We’ve broken that EVERY birthday so far. Well, when you love someone that much, I guess you should go the extra mile on their birthday. *grin* She got me the belt I wanted from Old Navy and ’24 Declassified’ and Grisham’s ‘The Broker’ novels. I’m in hour three already of ’24.’
With all of that going on, Gitr is still level 45 and may level tonight. My girlfriend is opening today, and closing the rest of the week because she took the whole weekend off. Normally she’d get one day off in there. So, I’ll have plenty of evening time to grind and quest for numerous updates to write on this boring, boring week.
