If anyone doesn’t have Taking Back Sunday’s album Tell All Your Friends and would like a (legal) copy, here’s a link/code to download it. I got a digital copy with my vinyl but I have had the physical CD for a long time, so I don’t want the digital copy to go to waste!
Now that I’m 21, I really enjoy trying new drinks pretty often… Most of the time I only try things when I’m at a restaurant or bar, but occasionally I feel like getting adventurous with what we have at home. Tonight I tried making a drink called Killer Kool-Aid. It’s 3 oz. Cranberry Juice, 1 1/2 oz. Vodka, 1/2 oz. Amaretto, and 1/2 oz. Peach Schnapps. I tried it and didn’t care for it very much… Probably because I hate vodka (I know, why make a drink with vodka if I hate it…). But I decided to add a splash of Sweet N Sour mix and MMM. DELICIOUS! Anyway, I recommend you try it. Oh, and the Killer Kool-Aid recipe says to serve un-mixed, so maybe that’s why I didn’t like it. But I recommend mixing it and adding Sweet N Sour mix. :)
Once again I was somehow managing The Maine. I don’t know why that has become a reoccurring theme but it’s cruel. Anyways we had to go to some big awards show which was like the Oscars and the MTV Music Awards rolled into one and I think it was in Brazil or something. I…
HAHAHAHA. Proof that Ryan Gosling and I need to get married.
So today has been a very long day. I woke up at 7:20 on my own this morning without an alarm. I watched a little One Tree Hill, started some laundry, and played a little New Super Mario Bros until I had to get ready for work. I worked 10-6 and then had plans to meet up with some friends from high school at 7 at Buffalo Wild Wings for a friend’s 21st birthday dinner and possibly a party at another friend’s apartment at 9. So far, so good.
A week ago, this boy from work that I have had a crush on (SINCE HE CAME IN FOR HIS INTERVIEW…..MONTHS AGO) got back from a two week vacation/backpacking trip to Europe. He reminded me that we still need to go out for a drink (because we’re both 21), so we made plans to meet tonight, at a bar downtown that I really like, at 8:30 or 9ish. This is the third time we’ve made plans to hang out…. and the third time he’s cancelled. The first two times were supposed to be “group” hang outs with one of our mutual friends, but he cancelled both times because (supposedly) our mutual friend was sick and wasn’t feeling up to going out. Ok, that’s fine… It wasn’t supposed to be a date or anything… I guess. But this time, he makes a point to tell me several days before he leaves for Europe that we still need to have a drink. We don’t speak for days after that, then he texts me before he gets on a plane to tell me he’s leaving for Europe, etc. and that he’ll see me in 2011…….. SO, once he got back he says again that we need to go out and tells me when he’s available and asks where I’d like to go, etc. and then cancels at 8:11pm tonight. DUDE. MAKE UP YOUR FREAKING MIND! Actually, don’t. Because that’s strike three.
So anyway, we both work tomorrow and he says he’ll explain tomorrow because it’s personal and he didn’t want to be a downer on my night out with friends from high school and that texting the explanation is “so impersonal”… I honestly don’t even want his excuses. I’m over it. He’s out of the game.
And to be completely honest, I was going to cancel plans with him tonight because he gives these crazy mixed signals and we haven’t talked at all this week at work, so I was going to say we could go out another time, that way I could go to my friend’s party and then to Corned Beef to hear my friend’s band play at 10:30. But with the way “plans” have been broken in the past I had a strong feeling he was going to cancel anyway. So either way, we wouldn’t have gone out tonight. But the fact that he cancelled again (even though I was going to cancel if he didn’t) makes strike three because I told him when we made the plans that he better not cancel again. So I’m done. Sorry, dude. I was really looking forward to getting to know you. I don’t dwell on boy issues at all, but this is obviously one complicated dude.
On a brighter note, I got these from Amazon today :)
