It takes some work to make it work.

You know what's worse than a typical Monday? A Monday after a long weekend. Going back to work is like torture. I guess this is what I can expect from my next three Mondays. I guess it's the one fall back for taking vacation time.

I'm excited about all this vacation time, but at the same time I'm not. It's going to be really rough not having my weekends, especially with my online class... though of course I haven't had any luck actually logging in to my class during the weekend so perhaps it won't be as detrimental as I'm anticipating. Also vacations mean spending money, which I'm not exactly thrilled to be doing (though luckily most of everything has already been paid for). I don't know... I'm just annoyed. I'm easily annoyed these days.

This weekend was really nice... until I backed my car into the neighbor's state-issued handicap SUV. It was totally my fault for not looking in my mirrors as I backed up, but also the jackasses were parked with their car halfway out of their parking spot. Had it been any other vehicle the owner probably would've just shrugged it off because seriously my Subaru is like all crumpled in one corner now and their massive truck has barely a scrape. But because it's a state vehicle they had to take down all my info. Ugh.

But the rest of the weekend was good. I saw Wanted (bloodier than I expected but I love James McAvoy and Angelina was smokin') and Hancock (I don't understand the bad reviews... it wasn't the most amazing movie ever but I thought it was decent for what it was, I was entertained). nyrclooch and Eric had a 4th of July BBQ and even though the weather was nasty, it was a ton of fun. Hopefully it becomes an annual event! I went to my aunt's on Saturday which was fine and EB came along, so perhaps they won't think I'm just making him up. Sunday EB and I had planned to go down to the Mystic area but we went to a vineyard in Colchester instead for a wine tasting. There was supposed to be a Farmer's Market but it was kind of weak. The wine was delicious though. :) We headed back up to South Windsor where we had a lovely lunch outside at Burtons and the sun finally came out. I spent way too much on sneakers. (I kind of needed them... I was hurting my ankle. New Balance did this thing where they measured the pressure of my feet, and apparently I have extremely high arches and my feet tend toward pronation, so hopefully these new shoes will help.) And then I went home and crashed my car, stuffed my face full of garbage, and couldn't log on to my class until I was too tired to do a decent job on my quizzes. See, great start and a lousy finish.

And now I'm here, with pretty much 4 days left til Shore Leave and way too much to do. Though maybe not as much to do as foreverseenstar which is vexing enough as it is. I am way too annoyed for this trip.

Also, I hate my hair. I'd like to chop it all off when I get back from Shore Leave. But I want it to be wavy or curlyish without me having to use four thousand gadgets and products on a daily basis to get it that way. Maybe I could convince my hairstylist to do a body wave or something. Do people even get perms anymore?

Whatever, I'm just so over my hair at this point... just like everything else! \o/

Alright, ALRIGHT! I'll take my crankiness elsewhere. Later, skaterz.

I'd be kind of nervous... I've never had one! I'd be nervous to ask. My hairdresser is so scared to try new things. I practically had to hold her scissors when I demanded she give me bangs!

Exact same thoughts about Hancock. It was pretty kick ass, not amazing, but entertaining. Don't get hate either *shrugs*

Plus, Jason Bateman & Will Smith were freaking awesome on screen together. But, I probably think that b/c I love 'em both...

Jason Bateman was fantastic. :)

New Balance is awesome for taking care of your footses!

I hope so. I think they're going to take a little getting used to from my old shoes... weird having shoes that actually fit!

But wonderful! Once you get used to them, you won't be able to understand how you lived before!

I'm sorry to hear about the accident w/ your car. :( The rest of your weekend, however, sounds like it was awesome. I keep thinking, how bad can "Hancock" be if you get to watch Will Smith for however long...such a beautiful man. Seriously. Anyway, just thought I'd drop by to say "hi" (in the form of a comment); I've been so bad at commenting lately; I'm going to try and do better. I don't want you or any of my other friends to think my lack of comments is a lack of caring. So yeah...*hugs*

Seriously, Will and Charlize were both beautiful. Jason Bateman was awesome, too. It was a good summer flick.

I can't decide what I've been worse at... commenting or updating, but either way I understand. *hugs* :)

I'm totally feeling you on the Three Day Weekend love. I've never had a real one, and being off for an additional day was AWESOME. It was like having two Fridays!

I need another one, like, yesterday.

I've got 'em coming out my ears. Wanna share? :)
