This afternoon I pushed a random button on the car radio and listened to a radio station that I’ve not heard in a long time. It’s probably been over 2 years since I listened to The River. This station is similar to stations all over the United States, but I’m not sure if the same company owns all of them or not. It’s a lot of music that you hear in the clubs downtown – you know, dance music that all the club DJs play and what the college girls like to hear.
There were a few songs on there that I’ve not heard before. I guess that means it’s been too long since I’ve been out clubbing! I didn’t realize that I’ve become such a homebody. Maybe this Halloween weekend I’ll find some cute sexy costume and call a couple of girlfriends to go downtown and party with me. Downtown is always crazy fun on Halloween weekends – the costumes are funny, scary or outrageous and everyone has a blast!
My man is thrilled that he got a deal on a motorcycle and told me to get myself ready for some rising this fall before it gets to cold. He bought me a motorcycle helmet and I found some good riding boots and a sweet leather jacket.
I probably paid too much money for the leather jacket, but I bought it from the Harley Davidson dealer and they had marked it down $20. I like the smell of leather – don’t you? I tried on every leather jacket in the store and I knew as soon as I this one on that I wanted to buy it. This jacket is not the cheapest one, but I expect to wear it a lot and see it as an investment. The leather protects my skin, keeps me warm and looks damn good, too.
Next weekend we are heading up to the Smokey Mountains and doing some serious riding. I just hope this damn government shutdown doesn’t screw us up and have all the parks closed. I figure the National Parks are going to be closed, but the state Parks should stay open. And who know how long it’s going to take those idiots in congress to get over themselves and end this shutdown.
Every once in a while my plans for the night get changed or canceled. It really sucks to be all dressed up with no place to go. And sometimes it is so late at night that you really don’t have anyone else to call at the last minute and invite out. Or something happens so you can’t go out at all and you are stuck at home for the night.
If I’m bored and stuck at home, I try a sex chat for a couple of hours. I can fix myself a nice cold drink, sit down on the couch, enter a chat room from my laptop and start talking to people. I’ve “met” some great people on the chat lines, people with a great sense of humor, people who have the gift of gab, people who can make me laugh. When I’ve had enough fun, I click it off and get myself to bed – usually with a smile on my face and a little skip or two on the way down the hallway.
Last night was our big company Christmas party. With the bad economy and all the shit going on this past year, with lay offs and our fucking CEO replaced with this new guy, I wasn’t sure how this party thing was going to play out.
Last year we had the party at the big Sheraton hotel downtown. We had the big ballroom and open bar and a live band. This year was nothing like it. Instead of at a hotel we had a big fancy dinner at an old restaurant downtown. They gave us our own private room at the restaurant and we all got to order whatever we wanted from the menu. So of course, most of the people ordered an expensive steak and some guys even ordered surf and turf. If we wanted a mixed drink we had to pay for it ourselves – that really sucked. But the tightwads did at least pay for a few bottles of wine that were on each table. So we had some spirits and people like me who love wine were able to drink plenty because some people don’t really like wine and they forfeited their shares.
There were not big speeches or anything, just everyone eating dinner and talking amongst ourselves. Dessert was pecan pie and coffee, and after that all the executives left and went home. But the rest of us who wanted to party longer went down to the basement nightclub and took over the joint. They had a pretty good DJ who was taking requests and the place had a couple of other small groups there for company parties like ours. We all just hit the dance floor and cut loose.
The guys in the sales department started throwing around their company credit cards and buying drinks for everyone, so some of them got really fucked up drunk and started doing stupid shit on the dance floor. Have you ever seen an old white man try to break dance? It was hilarious!
Turned out to be a crazy ass party once the ivory tower guys left us alone to our own devices. I have a hangover from hell because I drank so much wine, but it was a good time and I don’t give a fuck if anyone at the office is embarrassed on Monday. We saw some crazy shit – but that will give us all something to laugh about for a long time into the new year.
Well, this weekend flew by. I actually pulled my Christmas tree out of the garage and put it up in the living room. It has lights already on it, so all I had to do was put the couple dozen ornaments on it and a garland and the angel on top. The top of the tree is such a topic of discussion – I love having an angel on top of my tree, but some people insist on having a star or some other kind of decoration.
Only two shopping weekends left to get all our Christmas presents bought and wrapped and then shipped off to all the family who are not close by.
