Friday Confessions.

Well. Other than learning my father can make angel food cake (from a box, but still) and beautiful Simone coming into this world, I got sick. We’re talking fever, chills, cough, sneeze, worry about hydration kind of sick. So I took my first weekday off in about forever. That’s not a confession. I needed it. I ate healthy soup and slept and slept.

Because if my being ill, we didn’t do a damn thing for Valentine’s Day. Which I don’t really care about. That must make me some kind of Valentines Scrooge. But E is actually much more romantic than I am, and there was no real romance to be had with fever-sweaty me. Even a cuddle made me clammy with sweat. Gross.

I had such a fun weekend planned. The confession here is that I am massively immaturely resentful that I don’t think I’ll get to do a damn thing this weekend. I mean, the adult in me knows that when you’ve got to be less than thirty feet from a bathroom, you shouldn’t go out. Ditto fever chills, etc. But there are soooo many weekends where I don’t have big plans. Why now, God, whyyyy? (whine, snivel)

Anyone else feel like they were five years old this week?

    I’ve gone to Starbucks every day this week. I found a gift card I got at Christmas and hadn’t used. Shame on me.

    Then I was at work and one of my co-workers was all, Oh, I saw you there.

    I said, no way! I didn’t see you!

    He said, Yeah, I’ll say something next time.

    I said, Please do!

    Such a lie. I totally saw him. I didn’t want to say hi.

    I guess in that regard, I felt like a child. Lying to someone and avoiding social contact. Shame. But not really, because I don’t like social contact.

    Feh. Rush is coming to town when Scott is in New Zealand. Stupid Rush. Stupid physics conferences. I am trying to decide whether to just go anyway, but I feel weird about going to a concert by myself (not sure why—I merrily go to movies by myself).

    Anybody around on May 29th, and wanna come see Rush with me? I don’t know what the tickets are going for…

    (Let me just amend that slightly from “anyone” to “anyone I already know”. Because I think my husband would get jealous if I went with Spenny.)

    Stephanie, I do that a lot. Not go to Starbuck’s, but pretend not to see someone. Sometimes it’s to save time, but a lot of times, it’s just because I loathe small talk.

    Rachel, Rush is here for the first time in eleven years and your husband has to be in New Zealand, where physics is backwards anyway on account of it being in the Southern Hemisphere? A raw deal all around. I might come with you if tickets are not egregiously expensive. I don’t know if we’ll see Spenny again. I think after Jan.11 he’s flying free and unfettered through the Internet.

    Scott’s annoyed about it too, although the fact that he’s going someplace I’ve never been is consoling him somewhat (we have this stupid ongoing thing about who’s been where). I sent you email with more details.

    I forgot! to invite teens to the Adviysori Grp meeting we’re having next Tuesday.

    Added bonus: my boss is coming to the meeting, too.

    Oh, well; if no one else comes, she and I can decide what to call the group and eat all the snacks ourselves!

    Lesse – petulant, self-centred, prone to tantrums. Check, check and check. I don’t know if it’s 5 year old or 3 year old behavior, but I’m definitely not acting like a 34 year old.

    I hope you kick your illness square in the nuts.

    Els, fewer people + more treats = good math!

    Cheesefairy, you’re learning from Trombone, awesome!
