Weak End

Tonight, as I sat down at my computer to type up Monday’s post, I thought, “Boy, it’s been a hectic weekend.” Then I thought about it and realized that it really wasn’t. I got almost nothing accomplished and was relatively lazy, but somehow feel like it was busy. Here’s what I did:

Saturday:

6:15 AM: Woke up, grabbed Diet Coke, went to computer.
6:16 AM – 8:30 AM: Read blogs, responded to comments, replied to emails, chatted, worked.
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM: Played Tony Hawk: Downhill Jam on the Nintendo Wii.
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM: Replied to emails, responded to comments, read blogs, chatted, worked.
12:00 PM – 3:00 PM: Showered, went to Chick Fil-A. Got two chicken sandwiches, no pickles, extra mayo, waffle fries, chicken nuggets, large Diet Coke and Cookies and Cream milkshake. Ate lunch while watching Veronica Mars.
3:00 PM – 5:30 PM: Swam in the pool.
5:30 PM – 8:00 PM: Ordered pizza from Hungry Howies. Watched part of Caddyshack and all of Fletch.
8:00 PM – 9:30 PM: Replied to emails, responded to comments, read blogs, chatted, worked.
9:30 PM – 11:00 PM: Went and picked my wife up from the airport.
11:00 PM: Came home and went to bed.

Sunday:

7:00 AM: Woke up, grabbed Diet Coke, went to computer.
7:01 AM – 9:00 AM: Wrote Sunday post, read blogs, responded to comments, replied to emails, chatted, worked.
9:00 AM – 9:15 AM: Helped my wife put on suntan lotion and get ready to go to the beach with her girlfriends.
9:15 AM – 11:00 AM: Back to the computer for work and blogging.
11:00 AM – 2:00 PM: Tony Hawk.
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM: Watch TV with my wife, eat sub and nasty fries from local place.
3:00 PM – 6:00 PM: Go back to work on the computer while my wife naps.
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM: Watch “Hard Candy.” Fucking amazing movie!
8:00 PM – 10:00 PM: Watch “Reefer Madness.” Hilarious movie starring Kristen Bell.
10:00 PM – 1:00 AM: Read blogs, respond to comments, write post.

So, all told, that’s only about 16 hours of computer time, which means that maybe 10-12 of that was actual work. That’s pretty pathetic for a weekend. I really need to buckle down and work harder. It was just so gorgeous out that it was hard to get motivated.

Today, though, I’ll get plenty of work done. It may be a holiday in some parts of the world, but at my company, it’s business as usual.

    At least you didn’t have to entertain my evil mother-in-law from hell this weekend. I drank six coolers on Saturday night just to get through dinner and dessert. I never drink.

    By the way, you should probably have your cholesterol checked.

  2. Sheila

    Sounds like a hard life, there. Be careful not to strain yourself.

    On a completely different note, when is the proper time to use this smiley? :poke:

  3. Avitable

    Heather, that sounds even less productive than me!

    Jenny, luckily, my mother-in-law is not evil, so I never have that problem.

    NYCWD, well, it is work trying to beat the game!

    Geeky, yeah, it was quite intense! And really well filmed.

    Sheila, it’s a hard knock life. And the poke smiley is good to use when you’re trying to aggravate someone, I’d guess.

    DB, it’s my usual breakfast.

    DORK. πŸ˜›

    I actually had an annoyed conversation with Hay yesterday about you working today and making all your employees come into work as well. Granted, it’s a holiday that isn’t relevant to everyone, but are you getting that much business done on a holiday?

    And I think I might be related to DutchBitch.

  5. Angel

    I love the movie “Hard Candy”!! Also, I told you not to work to hard, and I’m glad to see that you took my suggestion. I love the Diet Coke for breakfast…my breakfast is usually Diet Pepsi or Diet Mountain Dew.

    Now, I am off to worship my husbands every move today, because not only is today his birthday, but he is also a veteran! Ohhhh Boy. Do you see what I have to do each year? I have to make the same day special for him in not one but two different ways.

  6. Avitable

    Mr. Fabulous, can I have your memorabilia?

    Poppy, I work on Christmas and New Year’s, too.

    Angel, aren’t you sweet!

    Mistress Yoda, that’s almost a sentence.

    RW, I didn’t mention Friday, did I? I accomplished quite a bit on Friday, including solving the world’s hunger problem. So there!

  7. Dragon

    I planted my herb garden, my flower garden, cleaned the house, baked a cake, did laundry and watched 3 movies. I’m freakin’ Superwoman compared to you. :angel: Sounds like you have more fun though. πŸ™‚

  8. Angel

    Thanks Avi, I hope he appreciates it as much as you do. :lmao: Every year on his birthday he gets a full body massage(done by me), whatever he wants to eat(cooked by me), and we do whatever he wants to do, all day, without me complaining about the heat or anything else. I do other things for him too, but they’re to X rated for this blog. :angel:

  9. Avitable

    Mistress Yoda, I’ll keep that in perspective.

    Steph, that does sound fun.

    Katie, sounds exhausting!

    Franky, it was beautiful weather here. πŸ˜›

    TMP, I know. It’s almost harder to do nothing than something.

    Dragon, wow, you should come over and do stuff around here once you’re done at your own house.

    Angel, nothing’s too X-rated for this blog!

    Liquid, I had the windows open and looked outside occasionally!

    Amy, no I don’t! I just am.

    sounds like my weekend. I did a whole lot of ‘nothing’ yet I’ve been busy all weekend. it was really rough laying poolside for most of today. πŸ˜‰ and now I’m craving a Chick-Fil-a sandwich which is unfortunate, because we don’t them one around here! πŸ™

  11. Avitable

    Cat, I was really impressed with Ellen Page.

    Tug, aww, poor baby. :lmao:

    KG, you? Used a chainsaw? Yikes!

    Tracy, I don’t know why they fucking do that. It ruins the sandwich!

    Mr. Fabulous, I’m a fan of autographs, too.

  12. Tug

    Yes, I am a poor baby, thanks for noticing. :finger: I feel the love oozing… :heartbeat:

    It made me get DRESSED on a weekend & leave HOME to get new batteries for my power tools. All is good now, thankssomuch for caring. :lmao: :sex023: :sex014:

  13. Avitable

    Tug, and by power tools, you mean your “power tools”, right?

    KG, that’s frightening! Don’t fall in. Because I can totally see you accidentally falling in.

    Mistress, I have. It’s okay, but doesn’t have the taste I like of Diet Coke.

  14. Tug

    I wish! Those batteries were good, I could have stayed in. :boobs4: :woohoo: :sex003:

    But no…I built a chair today and had screwing sucks. :lmao: :clap: :thumbsup: :assshake:

  15. Avitable

    KG, you should wear a suit of armor.

    Tug, you had screwing and sucked what? Heh.

    Paticus, no, they’re all closed on Sundays – it’s a Christian company. Of course, that’s such poor business sense. And Fletch is awesome – I wish someone would write good roles for Chevy Chase again.

  16. Geeky Tai-Tai

    There are no Chick-Fil-A’s here, dammit, and, yes, I like the pickles too! It always bothered me that they weren’t open on Sundays too, mainly because I NEEDED a chicken biscuit with the little “fries” (it’s been 3 years so I don’t remember the names). My mouth is watering writing this. They have wonderful chicken sandwiches!
