I just finished working ten days in a row. I know, I know, you have all probably heard me complain about this, but let me reiterate how exhausting this was for me. I haven't done that in a REALLY long time. And I really felt like I didn't get to see any of my non-work friends in a very long time. It is weird how people who have normal jobs, with normal hours aren't really into hanging at 11:30 at night. Weird.
To rejoice my break from work, I spent time with some (just some, not all) of my favorite people.
I got to work with Brandy Friday night. I never get to work with Brandy, in fact, I think it might be a conspiracy that is keeping us apart. We had a gay old time. In fact, we decided to create a myspace page for the two of us. Here it is if you are bored. Iris and Brandy's Excellent Adventures
We then went out for a friend's birthday. Ally came too, which is always fun. I get to see Ally a lot, I think she might be addicted to me, as I am to her, but we were dancing, and just having a good time. Unfortunately the cute boy ratio was a little low, so no random makeouts in the corner occurred.
Saturday I got up bright and early for a brunch date with Lis, Lisa and Autumn. I haven't had the chance to see the girls since my birthday, so it was nice to see them all. Autumn cooked us a really nice breakie and Lis and I brought some booze to spice things up.
Came home and hung out with my mom. We went shopping, as this is the best bonding thing we can do. We both love it and we just get to chill out and hang. What did I buy you want to know? A couple pairs of shoes and a few cds. Can I just say how good TV on the Radio is? They really do rock.
After shopping, mom and I laid around and watched Ugly Betty. I then went to Paul's new house and hung out with him. Since the move, which was well documented here, I haven't been able to hang with him as much, so whatever time I get with Smelly Paul is always appreciated. We watched Follow that Bird. It is a Sesame Street movie, but it is funny as hell.
Sunday was reserved for randomness with Jarod. I found out about gossip music month at McDougall Church, and dragged Jarod and Steve along with me. I haven't been to a church service in forever, but this was good. The choir itself sucked, but the band they brought in for it was really good. Steve and I were singing and Jarod appeared to be on fire, not really sure what that's about.
Church was followed by brunch at the Sugar Bowl. I so don't get why High Level Diner is the one that everyone always goes to. This was WAY better with a more interesting menu and a better beer selection.
Sunday night RoRo and I went to a Russian mockumentary at Metro Cinema. I am still confused as to what happened during it, or what it was ACTUALLY about, but meh, it was interesting enough. Just seeing those crazy Ruskies and their cinema was good enough for me.
So that was my weekend. I was actually really good. I got to see my peeps and spend some QT with them, which is always welcome and appreciated.
Alrighty, I am off to catch up on some much needed sleep. Tomorrow is cleaning day in Casa de Iris and let me tell ya, it is going to be EXHAUSTING!
