radlilim: (gay Paul and Me)
I got a lot, I mean a lot, of birthday wishes yesterday. I don't think I've ever gotten so many emails, texts, facebook PMs, and cards the day before my birthday. Not that I'm complaining, just interesting. Sign of the times? Everyone is so rushed these days? Who knows.

No real plans today. Work might go into OT soon, we'll see. Volleyball tonight, but after the game we plan to hang out at the bar for a few drinks. Paul, Jess and Lari are gonna come to my game too.

We've decided to head over to Angela's for Halloween this year. Play some game, eat good food, avoid downtown and bar crowds.

My friend Pat wants me to apply to be a bar tender at the Hilton for banquets. I'm considering it, shouldn't be too hard. I've not bar tended much, but I doubt there'd be a lot of call for odd drinks at those events.

Wow, been a while since I posted.

It was a lot of fun visiting with Laura, Rob and Jack while they were here. We didn't get to spend as much time together as I'd have liked, their drive to Indianapolis was a lot longer than they planned. But Jack is crawling now, though it usually takes a cell phone or remote to get him to move.

My party was a lot of fun. Time went by too quickly. I'd say 15ish showed up. People ate, drank and mostly talked, with a break to watch some Guild, Legend of Neil and other online videos. Didn't get around to playing a game, but there just seemed to be too many people, and then suddenly not enough. The girls got me the Knights expansion for Catan and Revolution, SJ Games new game for this year. Becky and Drew came up, which was really nice, and gave me a Border's card.

Last night Jess, Lari, Paul and I went to a pumpkin farm south of town, wandered out into the field, picked pumpkins and then went to Monty's Blue Plate for dinner. I had the Meat(less)loaf and it was wonderful. Lari gives good suggestions.

The Hilton called back for an interview, so I'll be setting that up soon and then maybe instead of watching TV at the mall I'll be serving food. Not sure this is a move that will lead to tons of fun ;)

Wow, I worked at the Hilton a lot longer than I thought. Going back though LJ entires I figured out my start and end dates for the app to work there again. Also, rereading those entires? I sound so young. Just wow. A lot about boys too. :D

Just one boy in my posts these days. :)

Someday I need to go back though and read this thing again. Probably should tag it all also.

Work is slow, but fine. Back to corrections on Spanish pages today.

Paul was up really late working on Halloween costumes. He was over at Jess's so they could be productive together, he got home at 5am.

I read today there will be a Glee soundtrack out, I kinda want it.

We played the first expansion of Killer Bunnies and the Journey to Jupiter last night. Some fun additions, long game though. Only a few fights, it was kept to a low rumble. Tired today though, I'm hoping I get to sleep in some this weekend while we are in the Twin Cities. All of that is laid out, I think. Should be a nice trip.

New project at work. Lots to do on it and man, is it slooooow. Mostly because it takes 10-15 minutes per correction to a) figure out what they want and b) find an example of the change so we can implement it. I'm sure it'll pick up soon, after we've figured out most of the types of changes and what needs to be done for them. My machine also had to be changed to new settings, so I can't even go back to the old project and help, unless I jump over to another machine.

Heading downtown tonight to drop off some part-time job apps, mostly at hotels. Pat told me the Hilton is hard up for catering staff, and since I left there on good terms and already know my way around the food areas, I think I have a good chance. Not my preferred option, but shouldn't be too bad. Lots of carrying food but I don't have to rely on how busy we are and tips to make decent money. Also gonna get some more RAM put into my new laptop. I'm so excited I get to bring it with us on our vacation.

We had a good night. Dinner at Fresco was good, view was amazing as always and the food and service was superb. I ran into Courtney, one of my old coworkers from the Hilton, which as nice. Then we walked to the Icon again, met up with Em and her sister Chee. Had a few tapas and many drinks. The girls seemed to like it. We closed out the night at our house with the girls for a bit.

Tired this morning, but no hangover or anything. Work will last most of the day. Might do some laundry this afternoon. Probably meet up with Em and Chee again tonight.

Been super busy with work latelty, thus the lack of posting. Weekend was fine, cept a bit too much partying and then a wasted Sunday. Done with Hilton now, no more early morning coffee shifts. Volleyball was fun on Sunday again, still more talk of the team for the national league. I got an intereting comment about my abilities. I was talking with Brett and he told me about a converstaion that he was having with Dudley about my skill level. Dudley said that I have a really good volleyball player in me, just struggling to get out. I think that's a compliment. Either way Brett keeps giving me tips and explaining plays to me and it's going well. I didn't even know that there were plays in volleyball.

Softball last night went better than last week. We still lost, but by a lot less. Might have had a lot to do with the Pink team not being as good as the Maroon team. We need to stop watching the ball hit the plate and swing. I had a lot of fun chatting/flirting with Lee (the coach for Pink) during the game. Last year he didn't have a clue who I was, and now we are at least casual friends. It's still cool that people choose to say hi to me when they see me, and its not just me trying to get their attention. For all my softball bitching, it's still a good thing. After the state tournament is planned I hope that part of my work load will die down and I can enjoy the sport.

It's been really cool seeing Wendy these last few days. I will see her and hopefully baby on Wednesday or Thursday night. And we have plans to met up in the Twin Cities in a few weeks with her sister and husband and my sister and husband abd hit the Ren Faire.

This weekend is tournament in the Twin Ciites. I have to remember to remind my cousin and her husband that it's a gay tournament and to not be surprised when they show up.

Volleyball last night was meh. We didn't play well, lost all three. But the team we played didn't seem too much better than us (on a good night), so maybe we won't loose all our games in the new league. One of my new friends from sunday volleyball subbed f or us. She's good, I hope we can work her into our team.

Walked to work today as my bike was still at the office from when I left it here Wednesday when it rained. Takes about an hour to walk here. Not too bad. Will stay at home and work on the 5 or so posters that I've promised people, and then maybe the gay volleyball web site.

Working all weekend at Four Lakes. Work Sunday at the Hilton (last shift there ever). Not sure if I'll make my cousin's house warming party. I'd like to go, but lots of work to do, and they didn't come to mine, so no guilt.

The Hilton was slow this morning, but Robert, a guy that used to work at the Hilton before me and now plays in the softball league just started, so we were able to talk most of the morning, making it not so sucky. After a brief (read too short) nap I went to Gay Day at the park. I got onto a gay outdoors club mailing list, where people just suggest what they are doing or where they will be, and eveyone else just shows up. Had a little picnic, played frisbee and volleyball, met a bunch of new people and said to hi people that I had met before. There were like 30 some people out. It was lots of fun and it was nice to have a reason to play in the sun. Tonight I will be meeting Robert and some of the guys and gals from the park today at the Shamrock and then we will head over to the Cardinal for a Foam Party. I don't think I will get down to my underware, kinda sensitive about the belly still, but will be fun to dance/grind in the suds, I hope. Maybe I'll hook up, who knows?

Very full night last night. Won all three games, went to Laredo's for 1/2 price margaitas and dinner, then drove to the Local Travern to drink more and listen to Blake play. It was basically Em's last night out in Madison before she leaves for DC this weekend, so I got to talk with her a bit. Hung out with [livejournal.com profile] exarian and [livejournal.com profile] spamcola. Not hung over, but a bit tired.

After playing tonight (in the cold rain, ick) and swinging by [livejournal.com profile] wenhaver's to look though books I think I will go to the gym and then call it an early night.

This weekend is filling up, but with mostly fun stuff. Hair cut (finaly!) and dinner Friday. Work at the Hilton followed by volleyball and picnic at Olbrich park on Satruday. Gonna try and hit the foam party at the Cardinal. Sunday is cable guy in the morning and then hopefully I can get the windows in the living room done.

I forgot to say how well we played on Tuesday. We had two subs, both A level players and we just clicked. I think if we were to get a A level person or two on the team, we could all move up.

The first shift at the Hilton went well. Wasn't too busy, had fun working with Shannon. Didn't make very much in tips, but the barista rate is OK for that. Then when I was suppose to go home Shannnon asked me to stay though lunch. Apparently management thought that this was the plan and thus didn't have anyone else to cover the Olive Bar during lunch. It sucked, was hard and lots of work. I was super tired and totally would have quit, if I hadn't made $90 in tips. So I told Shannon I'll take a few months off, but would work there again.

What really pissed me off about working late is I had planned to go home and nap before 3:00. Cause that was when I was supposed to call Adam and meet him for lunch. So I skipped the nap and we went to Red Robin, had an nice lunch and chat. Then headed down to State Street and walked arounf there, still talking. I don't know, I think it was a date. I'm supposed to try and meet up with him tonight downtown, which I will after/during [livejournal.com profile] exarians party. He's not as cute as I rememeber form the bar, but I was drunker then and it was bar lighting. He might meet me for brunch tomorrow too. It would be cool if this turned into something. He seems really cool.
