He wanted me to do that?
I told him I would, and then promptly didn't. I was cooking! I made them Italian sausages with peppers and onions, stuffed jalapenos, 7 layer bars, plus deli, assorted cheeses, and snackies.....not to mention my ace in the whole, ricotta pie.
I really didn't think they'd come over but to tip the scales in my favor, I emailed Gary and said "Tell Tootsie there will be ricotta pie." Bingo!
We had a great time and a lot of laughs. Gary, when he actually goes out in public, is HIGHlarious, and I laughed so much my cheeks got sore. We played games with Evan and his friend, who was sleeping over. <---what else is new? And yes, I drank too much, but isn't that was New Years Eve is for?
Turns out I totally could've set up the kindle myself as SOMEONE suggested. I watched Gary hit a button or two and then it was time to set up my amazon account and voila! Done! I panic a bit with all things electronic so having Gary there lended a modicum of comfort. Plus he had the boys laughing their asses off.
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my kindle. I bought two books last night! Wheee!!! One was $14.99 and the other $2.99. I will def see what else I want to buy over the weekend.
Gary and Tootsie left, and the boys moved their party up to Ev's bedroom a little before 2am. omfg. I decided at that point to play online poker, even though I'm never up that late usually. I decided to play a $3 double or nothing game, and last I remember I was doing pretty well. I was the chip leader, but not by much, and there were 8 of us left, with 5 itm. I fell asleep! I woke up at like 4am, sitting upright (maybe slumped over might be a better description) with the laptop in front of me and a message from black chip poker saying I won! lol Awesome. I've finally found the key to winning online poker; sleep through it!
Evan and his friend are still sleeping and it's 12:15am. I was going to bake them some muffins and cook up some bacon, but now I'm feeling lazy and I think if you want breakfast you need to be up by 11am. Besides, it's almost time for Tom Terrific and his gang to play! :) I fucking LOVE football. I've always been a baseball fan, but because a football fan maybe 7 years ago. And as much as baseball is my first love, there is nothing better than watching an exciting football game.
Speaking of baseball....
My buddy CRANKY left this comment this morning:
Is she awesome or what? The majority of games that I go to are in the first base area, but I have been to the right field roof boxes once before with Gary. As we sat up there in the sun, I told him I was going to get on the jumbotron screen and sure enough I DID! I shiat you not. I looked up and there I was in my red sox gear screaming and waving, and next to me, a glum bearded guy wearing a bruins shirt (Gary). Heh. Cranky we're going to be on the jumbotron!!!! Oh and I should warn you now, I get a bit overly excited at sox games and tend to cheer...erm....loudly. Thank you Cranky! Drinks and hot dogs are on me!
Half an hour to the Patriots game! Kids are still sleeping so I think I'll prep something for them to eat now. If they're not up before kick off, they're going to have to fend for themselves, which probably means goldfish crackers for breakfast. I am suuuuuch a good mom.
Oh and if anyone's around, I'll be playing poker on BCP during the game. I'm thinking a multitable so if you're around try to join it!
