Yesterday is officially ranked as one of the best days of my life. Like I mentioned in my last post, it was filled with Panda Express and hilarity and laughter, but after I posted, it was filled with CARNAL PROGRESS and me drunkenly laughing and screaming at people. Jovially, of course.
Anyway, so what I couldn’t mention (because Job 1 Boss reads my blog) was that a.bot and I decorated the shit out of cubicle. She’s been sad for the past two days because she had to put her dog down the other day, so in an effort to make her smile, I thought it would be a good idea to use the remainder of my printing allowance to print a buttload of pictures of ourselves, Kiefer Sutherland, Ryan Gosling, and Neil Patrick Harris. We forgot Michael Buble though. While we were putting them up, I was starting to laugh so hard I couldn’t breathe and was trying to say how hilarious it will be when her boss comes up and sees everything. But I got tipped over the laughing-edge when I was trying to take a picture to upload to Facebook for today and a.bot popped in with double thumbs up. I tried to take the picture 4 times, and then I collapsed in uncontrollable wheezy laughter. For like 5 or 10 minutes. On the floor. A.bot said I sounded like a dying turkey.
So after nearly asphyxiating myself with laughter, I went home and drank probably half a bottle of Moscato, showered, and got in my pajamas. Then my friend Neil called and asked if I was coming to bowling, and I said I couldn’t cause I couldn’t drive drunk. So he picked me up and we went to a local pizza bar with two other friends and afterwards went to one of the local bowling alleys for end of term bowling. We spent an hour playing pool before people showed up because we got there early. That was a lot of fun. I hadn’t played pool in a LONG time.
But that wasn’t the highlight of my night. HNI showed up which was the beginning of the highlight. We got to talk for probably 45 minutes and it was quite nice. I kind of felt like I cornered him a bit when we were left alone, but he didn’t seem bothered by it, so maybe that was just my imagination. There was one point when this random gamer I’ve never seen before was talking with us and I don’t remember what prompted him to say it, but HNI mentioned that I had more Photoshop skills than some gamers. I blushed. It was a really nice comment. I meant to ask him if he reads this blog when we were on the subject of Photoshop/photography (he really wants me to make a photography blog) because I’m very curious if he RSS’s it. (Hello, if you do.)
Yet, the best part of the night was when he was leaving. I decided that I wanted a hug (partly to see if he would actually do such a thing, but mostly because…I can’t even explain it), so as he was passing by saying goodbye to me, I outstretched my arms and he totally came right for me and hugged me back! But of course, being the comic that I am, I said “human contact” during and it made him laugh. That hug was the highlight of my night. Nerdy as it may be. Carnal progress.
I came home late and passed out pretty quickly after turning lights off. And I slept until 1 something today. And then found a note in the kitchen with money to get Chinese food and I made strange noises of approval. I also watched Felicity (the episode where Todd Mulcahy shows up and then he gets hit by a bus – AND MY MOM TOLD ME WHEN SHE WAS YOUNG, THERE WAS A GUY WHO APPARENTLY KILLED HIMSELF BY STANDING ON TRAIN TRACKS AS A TRAIN WAS COMING BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T LIKE HIM BACK. I THOUGHT THAT WAS HILARIOUS. WHICH IS PROBABLY INSENSITIVE, BUT LIKE. IT’S MY MOM.) and then my mom and I went to get my hair cut and her’s colored. And then we stopped by Somerset where I ran into an old high school friend. It was really nice to see her – she’s lost a lot of weight and she looks wonderful and beautiful!
And now I’m going to go either watch another episode of Felicity or read. But probably just continue to think about that hug and surf my Tumblr dash.
