So Sublime, When the Stars Are Aligned

Tonight the planets aligned just perfectly, so that the girls were at their respective social events during the same time period. If I were a more practical or responsible person, I would have used that time to clean and/or organize my life. I don't really need to make a big point to tell you that didn't happen, do I?

In my world, I try to put my precious and very fragile sanity first. I decided that the best thing I could do for myself, was to converse with adults who weren't my co-workers. So, I called some friends, hung-out with them for a while, laughed a lot and talked as much shit as I could fit in the time allotted. I couldn't have asked for a better evening. I'm so much happier, and I figure I have the whole rest of the weekend to get practical shit done.

Screw practicality, you did the right thing. When the going gets tough, the tough get drunk and giggle with their friends.

Churlita,
I concur whole heartedly!

My wife been gone a week and I haven't done shit around the house. Next week, ok? Laundry, clean the bathroom (my regular job btw), run the vaqcumn, and a general tidy-up...like, get the books and such off the kitchen table.

Enjoy when you can...it's what keeps a person reasonably sane. It is nice not to have to put work into the conversation as well.

Have a good weekend. Thanks for stopping over.

practical shit can wait! who's messy home has ever acually revolted? who's ever gone to jail for filing taxes a week late?

You've got your priorities straight. I'd do the exact same thing.

Mr Atrocity,

That's always been my motto. I'm glad you agree.

Not Faint hearted,

Thanks.

Rel,

It looks like you'll be doing some scurrying around next week. Make sure you make up for it by relaxing right now.

Evil-E,

I made a point not to talk about work with my friends at all that night.

Margaret,

My messy home is pretty revolting, but it hasn't revolted yet.

Eek,

Thanks for having my back.
