A Day in the Life of Me

On Friday, June over at Bye Bye, Pie! challenged fellow bloggers to blog about their day. What the heck, I thought, I'll give it a whirl.

Prepare to be amazed, astonished AND aghast at my exciting day.

I woke up at 7-ish with one hell of a hangover because on Friday night, I had gone to see KC & The Sunshine Band at the Orange County Fair. Admit it, you're seething with jealousy, especially since *I* got a Genuine autograph from Mr. KC Himself:


While dancing in My Boogie Shoes, I had made the mistake of having a couple servings of what I call "Fair Beer." Fair Beer may not make you feel drunk or even buzzed but you WILL feel like hammered shit the next day. So I stumble out of bed in search of this:

Some people start their day with coffee. Me, I must have a diet soda. After washing down a couple of ibuprofen, I headed outside to get the paper. If I don't read the paper every morning, I get "twitchy."


Once I finished reading the "Long Beach Blab" as I like to call it, my hangover hadn't diminished. A serving of some fast-food grease was in order so I headed off to Del Taco, aka "The Crack House":


After a nutritious breakfast of a Bacon & Egg Quesadilla with Hash Brown sticks and a LARGE Diet Coke, or, as the employees of Del Taco call it, "Your Usual?" I felt somewhat able to do some chores. I did some laundry:


Cleaned the kitchen and loaded the dishwasher as I seem to be the only person in this house who knows how to load a dishwasher. Seriously, TheManTheMyth will wash dishes by hand instead of putting them in that newfangled dishwashing machine.


Then it was time to head to the computer and check e-mails and stuff:


Sister Tracie called me up and asked if I wanted to go with her to a used bookstore out in Tustin. Is this a trick question? Does the Pope drive around standing up? Books are my one serious vice and any chance to go browse the dusty aisles in a used bookstore is a chance I'll jump at. So off we go with our directions from Mapquest in hand and let me say that, hands down, those were the stupidest directions ever issued. They had us taking the freeway offramp only to direct us to get right back on the very freeway we had just exited.

ANYWAY. We find the bookstore and I found a couple of books to add to my ever-expanding library:


When we got back, I pawed through yet another box of family photos and found some real gems, which will be used in future blog posts:


It was now dinner time and my hangover was still stubbornly hanging on. With both offspring out of the house (Thing 1 is in Lake Tahoe, Thing 2 stayed the night at Aunt Bippy's (Tracie) & Uncle Gaga's house), TheManTheMyth and I took advantage of no kids and actually went out to dinner! I was hankering for some BBQ so we went here:

where I had pulled pork and fried pickles. Oh, and a little hair of the dog to wash everything down. Dee-licious!

After dinner, we settled on the couch to watch X Games 15:

before toddling off to bed around 11:00pm.

That's it. That was My Day. Exciting, no?
