I got a new job (sorry to piggyback on your news, Ash!!), and it pays decent and lets me work from home and set my own hours and I already love it! I’ll get to spend the day with my dog and cat, which means I can have a social life as I’m not commuting 45 mins home to walk the dog, and then having to drive 30 mins back to town and feeling guilty about leaving her alone all day long! Yay!!!

I also have a new man. Dream man turned out to be a bit scary, has a bit of a temper, said he never wanted to be apart from me because he has no way of knowing that I’m not bringing guys home if he isn’t there (ugh), and told me I don’t count as a Canadian because I’m an immigrant, so I broke up with him. Planned to be single for a bit, but a coworker introduced me to this gigantic dreamboat of a nerd and we’ve had two dates. We talked Lovecraft and Pratchett and Doctor Who and Noam Chomsky and he is 6’5″ and does historical re-enactments (lololol)(NEEEEEERRRRRRD) and is tv-and-movie-nerd handsome. We’re going to see I, Frankenstein this weekend, which looks terrible, and he wants to bring me to meet his friends for their weekly board games and pot luck night on Monday, which I’m pretty solidly in favour of.

    This week was long and weird and I’m glad it’s over! But I’m even more glad everyone has new jobs and is so good at coming up with sick movie titles and making fun of Ben Affleck.

  2. Happy weekend everyone! Let’s all get some sleep!

  3. Happy weekend! Gonna spend mine with some nerdy teenagers, but first . . .WE DANCE.

  4. happy dancing! glad this week is over! i made sugar cookie dough last night and cant wait to get home and finish making them
    which is an A+ idea on my part since i have to go to the dentist tomorrow
    hope everyone has a better weekend

  5. This was the weirdest week ever, you guys. But I’m home, Flanny’s coming over tomorrow night to watch the Lizzie Borden movie, and I’ve got my wine. Let’s dance.

  6. Happy weekend gang! I’ve been trying to recover so I can go out this weekend (hope you’re doing better Kelly), and I think I’ve succeeded. Either way I’m not staying in this house!

  7. I barely paid attention all week you guys. I was feeling super sorry for myself because the whole week was occupied with being in pain and getting emergency surgery. AND IT WASN’T EVEN A BIG DEAL, IT WAS LIKE AN OUTPATIENT THING AND NOW MY TASK IS MAINLY TO EAT LOTS OF MOTRIN.* It just turns out I have an embarrassingly low threshold for inconvenience.

    But thanks to Top Comments, I feel caught up. Ashleigh’s new job which led to Fatima’s catastrophic dating life which led to facetaco’s view of potlucks as a Prisoner’s Dilemma which made me remember fondly the super-competitive dinners I used to have with friends 5 years ago — we called it Wine Club and it was the best — I’m in a decent mood now. Excellent.

    Also in reference to the Jennifer Lawrence manic dancing/cleaning gif posted above — I saw that last weekend and when the end credits rolled my friend, who is a big fan of the Hunger Games movies, turned to me and exclaimed, “Wait! Jennifer Lawrence was in this??” So I guess she’s very good at acting/wig wearing, you guys.

    *And no alcohol for 10 days. That really, really hurts.

  8. What is this Monsters’ Ball everyone keeps raving about?

  9. WHOA a job and #1 comment, what a weeeeek!
