Happy Super Bowl Sunday!! This is my favorite holiday of them all! This year won’t be as awesome as last year’s since the love of my life (The New York Giants) are not involved, but I will still have a blast. Is there anything better than eating typical tailgating food, drinking some beers, and watching football with your friends? The answer is “no,” in case you were unsure where that question was going.
This weekend has been interesting to say the least.
Friday – After work and a quick stop at home, I was off to a coworker’s house for a housewarming/engagement party. I arrived around 9 and found out that many people had already taken off because they had to work the next day, etc. Luckily, a few of my friends from work did arrive and good times ensued.
We played some Guitar Hero, drank some beers, ate some snacks, and discussed many things – namely my disgust at how “Rocky” won Best Picture in 1976. It’s a travesty! It is a god awful movie and beat out the likes of “Network” and “All the President’s Men.” How!? But I digress..
The relatively calm night started to get hazy when the person hosting the party decided we should all take shots. A couple of shots of Hot Damn later and most people were pretty tipsy. One of my work friends, we’ll call her K, had brought three guys with her and all four of them and I decided we should move the party back to their condo since the party was starting to dwindle.
We get back to their condo and we start drinking some more and truthfully, I only remember bits and pieces from there. I just remember having a really good time. One of the guys saw my UConn sticker on my car and told he went there too. Turns out he was from CT too! We talked about good old UConn for a while. I remember that.
His roommate is gay and at one point took my shirt off (I had a white t-shirt on underneath, so its not as scandalous as it sounds). I definitely remember that. I also remember thinking, kinda sucks when the only person flirting with me lately is a gay guy. Meh.
I remember showing K and company my tattoo.
I remember another girl arriving who turned out to be one of the guy’s sisters and she went to UConn too!
And that’s about it.
Next thing I know it’s Saturday morning and I’m on a couch. There is something furry rubbing against my arm. I assume it’s their dog or cat. Then I remember they did not have a dog or cat. It was a freaking ferret getting its cuddle on with me. I gently push the vermin off the couch and stumble to my feet. I’m fairly sure I was still drunk. I left a thank you note to the guys and drove home. I quickly passed out in my bed.
Saturday – I awoke around 3 pm to hang out with the Ex. We had made plans to hang out during the day on Saturday. She came over to use my washer and dryer, but paid me back with homemade chili. Yummy. I spent a majority of the time being a waste of space, but I still had fun with her and the puppy. It was nice to feel like a “family” again. For those wondering, no, nothing is happening between her and I. We are getting along really well, but there has been no romance or hook-up things going on.
So that has been my weekend thus far. I’m off to a friend’s apartment for the Super Bowl so hopefully awesomeness will be quite plentiful. I hope you all had a great weekend.
