i’m coming off an incredibly lazy week. free-time lazy, not lazy-lazy. i did two 9-hour shifts at work last week and actually wanted more. if i could work monday-friday, 12-9, that would be ideal. as long as it was at my current office, i might give up my first-born to work those hours this summer. lately i’ve just felt depressed when i’m not going in. i don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. i do know that working all week leads to incredibly lazy saturdays.
i know traditionally, it’s lazy sunday, but last saturday was one of the first days in a long time where me and my boyfriend were both off work. he works weeks but i’m part-time so i work most evenings and saturdays. actually, we rarely see each other. it keeps our relationship stronger, or something. we took advantage of the lazy, rainy saturday in the best way possible.
we woke up late and made a huge pot of coffee. we just sat on the couch and he worked on a website or something silly while i did something far sillier, which probably means that i checked my facebook and did an online crossword.
i got up to make him a pancake breakfast. i planned for it to be an enormous pancake breakfast but then i got annoyed with making them and only made 8 or 9. we ate pancakes in the living room, sitting at the coffee table. we both drank more of the coffee out of oversized mugs with our initials on them.
we found a mirror in a closet that we haven’t put up yet and spent a little piece of the afternoon trying to decide where to hang it. results were inconclusive.
intense scrabble playing. we played one half-game that wasn’t working too well, one of those times when everything is shifted to one side of the board and everything suddenly seems impossible. then we played a longer, better game that i’m confident i won though matt wouldn’t tell me the final score.
almost two full hours were devoted to checking old mix-cds to find out what was on them. we were not-super-surprised to find that a lot of my cds had the same songs as his did. we had good nostalgic talks fueled, of course, by 90s music.
rainy trip to mcdonald’s once it was decided that no one was going to be making lunch. it didn’t get really rainy until the walk home.
NAP! laziest saturday nap … of all time.
super nintendo while we ate leftover mcdonald’s. in pajamas. super mario world, then mario 3, and then finally mario kart. which never lasts long because apparently i’m not very nice when i play and i always yell at him for not making it through to the rainbow road. well, i’m sorry, but super mario kart is no fucking joke.
brief pause from super nintendo to try and find cops on tv. cops has been replaced by nascar the past couple of weeks. uncool.
more nintendo. this time accompanied by more old-school music. and then some of matt’s weird music which, as it turns out, wasn’t completely terrible. completely. also accompanied by wine. always with the wine. love wine. bring wine with everything.
SNL with betty white. huge centipede on the wall. giddy and tired from all the laziness. slight disappointment, only for a moment, over the fact that i had to go to work in the morning. only because our lazy saturday was amazing… but then i smartened up and realized that nothing was better than getting up early, making a fresh pot of coffee, and heading into that office.
my life right now, whether it be 12-hour days at work or incredibly lazy saturdays, is pretty fucking good.
