 so I realize that I didn't do my end of the week update, my....weekend update, you might say? Just call me Colin Quinn. 

I'm a little tipsy right now, so if this post is a little more fun and funny even, you can blame that :p (I refuse to say 'I'm a little drunk' because I had two drinks, but apparently those brandy and coke's hit me kinda hard :p)

so, monday...well, I've recently become obsessed with the actor (I keep saying Stellan, but that's his father and definitely not who I'm obsessed with) Alexander Skarsgard and so around the monday time (it might've been monday, it might've been last saturday, I'm really not sure :p) I downloaded the HBO mini-series he was in, Generation Kill. it was pretty much awesome and so I'm on the hunt for the three Rolling Stones issues that contain the three articles that Evan Wright wrote which eventually spawned the book, which is where HBO got the mini-series from. 

tuesday, wednesday, thursday were much of the same; finding things about Generation Kill, skipping through the True Blood eps to watch ASkars parts, re-vamping my icons to include a multitude of ASkars icons and things...yea. went to Chipotle with Erin one of those days and then back to her house to start watching Generation Kill with her. we have three episodes left. she loves it, which is awesome. 

Friday, my sister and brother-in-law had to have their ducts (whenever my mother said it I kept thinking she was saying 'ducks', which would've worked to a point because Brandon's a big hunter so has a lot of stuffed ducks and so I thought they were cleaning his animals or w/e....but no. ended up being much more boring than that :p) cleaned and then they had this huge baby merch sale at USA Baby, so they skipped out on dinner to do that. the rest of us went to Culver's instead of the mall because my mother also had to work, so going through the tedium of the mall was just out.

saturday...we went to webb's a little late, around 4ish because aly and brandon had this 3-D sonogram thing to go to, so my mother and father and brandon's mother and step-father went to that and we went to webb's after, because it's like...literally down the block. so for the rest of the day I felt like I was behind about five hours or so. we usually go to webb's at around 10 or 11 in the morning, so at like 7 I felt like it was 12 in the afternoon (it even looked like 12 in the afternoon, my day was all fucked up) and I wanted to go out and...I don't know, play in a park like a five year old or something. seemed like a good idea at the time.

today....was my cousin and godchild Quinn's fourth birthday party. my aunt mary always makes really great food for these parties, but I wasn't feeling it and had maybe a sandwich or two. disappeared for maybe a half-hour to go to the library to pick up the 'Generation Kill' book and no one noticed I was missing, total win in my book :p 

and then...tonight I went out with alex to mad dog saloon and as I said, got a little tipsy. and that brings us to here, me Colin Quinn herself telling you about my week. I have to take the car in for an oil change at 7:45 tomorrow...later today :p that should be awesome, my dad said I could get BK Lounge for breakfast after. score.

hm...yea. I had something else, like five seconds ago, but it's gone now. 

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS. I got a job at Summerfest, a yearly thing that Milwaukee does, 11 days of bands, beer and...I don't have another 'B' word. damn. w/e, there's a lot of music and drinking. it's the largest musical festival in the world. pretty cool, if you ask me. *shrug*

yea I think I'm done.

 so with the abandonment of my 30 days of me! game, I guess I can get back to my random posting of nothing and my weekly updates. 

Monday. hm. I haven't been doing anything substantial lately because I've been so engrossed in this new book series, The Sookie Stackhouse novels, also called the Southern Vampire Mysteries. my mother bought me the boxed set of seven two christmas' ago. two more have come out since then, and there's one scheduled to come out in May, so that makes ten books so far. I'm four chapters into the ninth at the moment.

these books are good. I don't love Sookie, the main character. the book is first person POV, so it's all told from sookie's point of view, and she...well, she annoys me. seriously, the only reason I'm reading these books is because of the vampires, and one vamp in particular. the character Eric Northman. he's so frickin awesome and I'm totally in love with him and finally, FINALLY, she's (the author) done what I want her to with him, and his relationship with sookie. 

so those books have really wrapped me up this week. I know I picked Alex up from work one day and we drove around a little, stopped at Culver's for lunch...well, hah, dinner :D we made tentative plans to hang out maybe two or three times this last week but that never happened. no big deal, I've been so into these books I barely notice the outside world. 

I'm just gonna skip to Friday because as I said, I haven't been doing much of anything this last week. we went to Taco Bell instead of the mall on friday because Brandon wasn't going to be there and Jared didn't show up either. the song 'Time After Time' came on while we were there. I have a version that's done by Eva Cassidy, and apparently the original was by Cindi Lauper? I don't know. but this one was by like...I don't even know, Less Than Jake or Silversun Pickups. some punk/pop band that I don't listen to. I remember catching a few of the lyrics and being like...'um, wtf mates?' and Aly just goes, 'yea, it's what you think it is.' so funny. there's no need to re-do a song like that in such an upbeat tempo. it's not meant to be like that :p

Saturday we went to Webb's at around 11 something. my mother actually came with us, so it was my Mother, my Father, my uncle bob, my cousins ben and mike and me. a little after we ordered my mom asks what the date is, I don't know why, but she did and I look at my phone and tell her, it's the 17th. and the annoying lightbulb goes off over my head and I remember that I had the stupid summerfest interview yesterday morning. It was 12 in the afternoon, the interviews were going on until 1 PM. my mother and I rushed home, I changed clothes, found my purse and my social security card, we rushed down to summrefest and got there at like....12:30. so I made it, had the interview, it was all good. 

that night, Kevin and I went over to Aly and Brandon's house to watch the Chipmunk movie, the Squeakquel. we'd watched the first one as a big family thing, and I'd actually brought Jesse to that, hah. the movie was ok. you could tell they were grasping at any kind of plotline they could come up with to be able to introduce the Chipettes, and it was thin and not well formed because of that. 

today, I read the 9th Sookie book and we went to Olive Garden for dinner. I sat around and didn't eat much because everyone was talking to me, about the Summerfest job, about the Post Office job that I haven't heard anything about in weeks. so that's kind of annoying. *shrug*

hm..go read the sookie stackhouse books. eric is my absolute favorite person right now :D

 I feel real cool right now. :D I'm posting this from dreamwidth, so I apologize for all the little explanations that all you LJ people already know. 

ok, this week. Monday. 

monday...

monday. I really need to start writing this stuff down day to day so I actually have something to tell you guys :p I don't remember what happened on monday. I didn't have to watch the monster (my younger cousin, Quinn). I might've had to go get Kevin from his religion project thing. 

Tuesday, had to watch the monster while my mother carted my older brother around the city. then she gave me the choice of watching quinn or getting kevin, and I got kevin :D 

Wednesday, jared was thrown in jail for something (I don't actually know what it was this time, and I don't want to know. I'm sick of his shit and I don't care anymore). I only know this because Brandon asked me why my dad was in such a bad mood on wednesday when brandon called. I had no answer for him, until I thought about what happened on...

...thursday. had to watch the monster ALL DAY. I went to sleep at like...four in the morning on thursday. my mother comes in to my room at around 7 or 8, I don't remember, and is like 'come on, you have to come and watch quinn. I have to go bail jared out of jail.' so I had to sit and play super mario bros on the Wii all frickin' day. I officially hate that game. he took a break at one point to eat or something, and then wants to play again. he doesn't want to watch his shows, which I can't blame him for, the kids shows on nickelodeon are bullshit. but he sets it up, and chooses the second saved game thing. I look at him, and he just smirks at me, because he knows he's done something wrong. his mother, my aunt mary, specifically told me when she was leaving to take his brother owen to school that his game was number three.

so I ask him for the controller and he gave it to me, and I went back to the title screen and picked number three for him. he pitched a fit, yelling and screaming about how he wanted to go to number two, why couldn't he play number two. but his yelling and screaming doesn't get to me. it's when he throws things at me and hits me that he gets to me. 

my mom gets back to his house, my aunt mary's house, at around...12. maybe. and I'm like, can you take me home now? and she's like, 'no. you can take the car, but then you have to pick up kevin at 2 or whenever. or you can walk.'

it was pouring outside. thanks mom. so I waited for two hours, but I couldn't take quinn yelling and screaming and telling me what to do in a game he sucks at, so I sucked it up and drove home. picked up kevin at 2 or whenever, and then I tried to go to sleep. 

my mother calls at 3, an hour later. 'are you going to pick up owen?' and I'm like, what the eff?! no. so she's like, you have to bring the car back then, we have to pick up owen. so I had to go back there again and play his stupid game with him while she picked up owen. 

got home, went to sleep, woke up at 7 in the evening. tried to go back to sleep at like...2 in the morning. I think it worked. but then I still slept till around 2 in the afternoon. very discouraging. there's no point in having a normal sleep schedule if I'm not going to sleep normally. hmph.

Friday, my Dad's friend Robert Munday came into town. my other Uncle Robert, except of course we're not related, and he's the one who calls himself my uncle :p He and my Dad worked together years ago and by chance actually kept in touch. they do the same job, they're computer consultants or something. they worked together at Milwaukee Valve. as consultants, they're not actually employees, but they get paid a helluva lot more than actual employees. the downside, they can get let go at the drop of a hat. my dad has been lucky enough to find jobs around milwaukee, or at least still in WI, so he isn't really gone much. Robert Munday has worked all over the country. he lives in Montgomery, Alabama. right now he works in Jacksonville, FL. 

so he came into town Friday night. we went to Balistreri's, an italian place. apparently my parents used to go there every friday for fish fry, and that was Robert's requirement for the night, he wanted to go for fish fry. the three adults got fish fry, kevin jared and I got pizza. hung out with Alex friday night. it was a little subdued. he was a little drinky and hungry, I was a little...I'm not sure. *shrug* we only stayed for an hour or so, because after he'd eaten he got uber tired. 

Saturday we went to George Webb for breakfast with Mr. Munday. it's usually a family thing and guests are welcome, but my Uncle Bob (robert, my dad's brother) had to do something with school (he's going back to school to get a degree in christian studies or something) so he wasn't able to make it. it was me, kevin, jared, my dad, robert munday, and brandon (it always occurs to me while we're there, and sometimes before we go, that I'm always the only girl there. at webb's, I mean. every weeked :p). I watched movies and/or read most of the afternoon. tried to start Pride & Prejudice because I just started this awesome P&P Trek fic, but it's only two chapters in. so I started the movie, the version with Keira Knightley, but got bored. it was too slow for my mood. so I put in 10th Kingdom instead. didn't finish it, it's six freakin' hours long or so. 

for dinner we went to Marty's, a pizza place in Brookfield. Robert loves their pizza, I assume he first had it when he was working in Milwaukee. we always go there when he comes to visit. my Mother was working, so it was me, kevin, jared, aly&brandon, my dad and robert. after Marty's we went to Kopps. I had suggested it as a joke, we were driving home and my dad says 'where to next?' and I yelled out Kopps! (it's a huge van and I was in the waaayyy back, I had to yell :p) and then said, 'just kidding'. we don't usually do the dessert thing after we go out for dinner. it was a joke. but I put the idea in Robert's head, so then we went anyways. :D 

And today...my dad wakes me up at 4:37 and tells me that I have five minutes to get ready if I want to go out to dinner tonight (we go out every sunday, my mother and her siblings and the families). so I rush to get ready and we go to Texas Roadhouse. we get there and Mary, Sean, Owen and Quinn and Judy are already seated, waiting for us. Judy had to get up and let me scoot in to the booth, because apparently Owen wanted to sit next to me. he does this a lot actually. he'll ask me to sit by him, but then he doesn't speak to me all night. I don't get it :p

we get home, I come back upstairs to continue watching Secret Life (all the season are on hulu, it's soooo exciting! :D). I had to use the bathroom, so I'm in there. it's literally like...five or ten minutes after we'd come home from dinner. and my mother knocks on the bathroom door and is like, 'do you want to go see a movie? if you do, we have to leave right this very minute.' again, thanks mom :p

so we went and saw The Blindside at the budgets (a theatre where movies are $2, a dollar on tuesdays. they get movies after they leave the regular theatres, marcus, AMC and the like. it's a crap theatre, very rundown, but the prices make up for it :p). it was a good movie. I don't know that Sandra Bullock deserved the oscar for it, but I certainly liked it :D 

which brings us to now. I might watch some more Secret Life, I might read this Titanic-based Trek fic and go to sleep early. my Mother would like me to go with her to look at couches tomorrow afternoon, so I can't stay up all night long. we'll see.
