The hub-bub had his Christmas party on Friday.
I used to go with him but it would be me and the owner's wife as the only females so I stopped going about 3 years ago. Andy doesn't frequent bars so I always suggest he stay as long as he wants. This Friday was no different, he just has 3 simple rules:
1) Don't drink and drive. If you're over served, give me a call and we'll go get you.
2) Don't flirt with any women. Remember there is a death penalty with that one.
3) Don't flirt with any men. Because... just don't.
His dinner party was at 7:00 pm and since I was having fun with my brothers, sister and sister-in-law, I hadn't realized what time it was until after they left.
Okay, just relax and give him a call. 5 rings and his voicemail. Okay, just send him a text. "Still sober?" Wait 10 minutes, maybe it's loud at the restaurant.
15 minutes later still nothing.
Am I being weird? Yes, but that is part of my nuttiness... I become paranoid when I can't get ahold of my peeps.
This one time, I had the whole family on a search party throughout Chicagoland because I couldn't get ahold of my mom. She was at mass...
***AND WE'RE BACK!***
At 10:30, I started calling him every couple of minutes.
The cold sweat started, I could picture him in a ditch somewhere... the minutes were dragging! I remembered every mean thing I've said to him.
Oh, my poor Andy! By this time it was 10:57, then 10:58, then 10:59... you get the picture!
FINALLY!! At 11:15, he calls to tell me he's okay, they were at the bar part of the restaurant, it was loud blah blah blah. I was happy of course but a little pissed he never thinks about calling me when it's late knowing what a psycho I am!
I didn't yell at him, I told him to stay longer and to give me a call when he was on his way, I went to bed.
I know men and women are different. If I'm running really late, I call him but he usually doesn't even realize what time it is or that I'm late because he's killing troll-orcs. I call him anyway, you know, just in case he worries one day.
Can you believe he actually enjoys his Christmas parties????? I wonder what that would be like?
On Saturday morning, he dragged me to the bank with him. I was still in my pajamas but he insisted I go. I stayed in the car and played a game on my cellphone. For some reason he took forever and people kept going into the bank but not coming out.
My nuttiness came out again so I started envisioning bank robbers keeping them hostage.
Now what am I going to do? I'm in my PJs and slippers!
Okay, if he doesn't come out after I finish this game, I'll sneak over there ninja style and see what I can do to save the day!
Andy walked out about a minute later so I never got to test out my Ninja skills.
When I told him what I was thinking he said:
"What the hell were you gonna do? I can picture you standing by the bank door in your PJs and everybody looking at me! What would I say then?"
"Uhm... that's when you deny you know me! I'd do the same for you."
He also thanked me for not going into action until after I finished my game.
If you you don't believe I would have gone to save my Andy, you don't know me very well... ;o)
Later that evening, it snowed (white-out blizzard style with a total of about 8 inches from Friday to Sunday) so I was stuck in the house with nothing to do but watch TV.
Among my channel surfing, I came upon Sada Punjab television which had some "awesome" singers. Jasbir Jasi and Satwinder Bitti (Who? I don't know them either but they seemed pretty famous). I know every nationality has their music and I'm not making fun of it, it's just interesting. The woman singer had on Indian clothing and was doing a veil dance, I think it was a veil dance because they kept putting more clothes on her. When they panned into the audience it was all men in the first few rows and the women were in the back. I finally changed the channel when Andy came out and asked me what the 'ef I was watching. I think I was hypnotized!
I've put a sample at the bottom of this post in case you want to dance with me.
On Sunday we did more of our Christmas shopping.
One for you, two for me! I found these gorgeous shoes at an awesome price (they're blood red)! What? You don't care about my shoes?
<-- Cyber door, walk thru it and don't let it smack your ass on the way out.
Come on! I had to tell you guys about it cuz they're really cool! The picture does not do them justice.
Andy says he's got my Christmas present but won't give me any clues as to what it is. I haven't even decided what I'm buying him. He gave me a list of computer games which means I'm going to have to go to the dreaded Electronic store--Best Buy--! I hate going there!
Geeks tend to flirt with cool chicks! How do I know? I've seen it happen. ;o)
::sigh:: Back to work!
