Another weekend with no shows to do. I beginning to wonder if I'm even in the cast anymore. I won't be doing shows next weekend, either. I have a wedding to go to. Hopefully I'll get to do a show or two in August. I'll keep you updated.
Friday night turned into another movie night in the Ford household. Dee and I were both pretty exhausted from the late night on Thursday due to Jerkology (okay, this is no longer a plug it's just simply fact - though it still feel pluggy, no?). We had a choice of The Godfather or Running With Scissors as those were the two Netflix movies we had at the time. Since neither of us had ever seen The Godfather and were feeling quite guilty about it, we decided to watch that. Actually, I decided to watch that while Dee fell asleep next to me on the couch. We both knew that going in.
Guess what? The Godfather is a damn good movie. After seeing it I felt even worse that I hadn't seen it. I've seen it now though, so I don't feel so bad about not having seen it. Of course, Dee can't really say that she's seen it even though she's kinda seen it. I'm sure she'll say she's seen it, though. It was really interesting to finally see all of the famous scenes that everyone talks about in context. I always knew that the horse head in the bed was from The Godfather, but had no idea how it would make any sense in the movie. However, it makes perfect sense now that I've seen the movie. All of those Sopranos references to the movie make a lot more sense now - including the final scene (which I loved by the way).
On Saturday, Dee and I slept in. Her Nana's birthday was on Thursday and the family had planned a small celebration for Saturday afternoon. We got ourselves cleaned up and headed out to her parents' place in the 'burbs. Unfortunately, the party was at her Nana's place. Once we figured that out we went there instead. We had some pizza, chatted with the family and ate a little bit of birthday cake. Nana is 83. She's a spunky little champ. I love her. We're best buddies.
Dee had a bachelorette party to attend in the evening and I was going to a going away party for my friend Jon, so we got home around 6pm and got ready for our little parties. Dee got ready for her party. I played Guitar Hero. Once Dee finished getting ready, I drove her down to the party and set out for my own party.
The going away party was also a Guitar Hero themed party as Jon is a huge Guitar Hero fan. He had the new Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s game. I have to say that I'm a little disappointed. There aren't any Def Leppard songs. C'mon people. There are also some other notable omissions, but I can't think of them now. Figure it out for yourself, go to the Wikipedia entry and check the songlist. Around 1am I was feeling a bit tired, so I bid Jon farewell and made my way back home. Dee and I had been exchanging texts throughout the night so I have some documentation of her getting more and more drunk. I decided to hit the sack around 2am and zonked out pretty quickly. I suddenly awoke at about 6:30am and realized that Dee was still not home. I checked my phone and noticed that I had a text from her at 3:10am that read, "Yes baza." I interpreted this to mean: "I'm lying in a ditch somewhere in case you want to get in touch with the authorities." I immediately called her. No answer. I called her again. No answer. I called a third time. No answer. Last try. She finally answered. She informed me that she managed to get really, really drunk and pass out at her friend's sister's place. She and her friend tried to call me, but I didn't answer. Wrong. My phone got no calls.
She decided to come home around 7am and she promptly crawled into bed and crashed for the rest of the day. As the day wore on, I decided to check my work email and discovered that I had received two voice mails on my work phone (we have a system at work that sends us an email when we get voice mails). Dee and her friend had called me, but at the wrong number. Drunk times is good times.
Thanks to her killer hangover, we put our TV shopping trip on hold and spent the day lounging around the house. In fact, I don't think Dee ever left the house yesterday. I went out only to get her cheeseburgers from McDonald's.
My weekends are so awesome.
