Friday Confessions

It's been a while since I've confessed on a Friday... I think I'm due! :)

I confess... that I did go curling last night after all.  And no, I really didn't enjoy it (the actual curling part, I mean.)  I have no athletic ability, I have old lady knees, and I'm easily frustrated, so yeah... kind of a bad combination.  But I think it has the potential to get fun if I keep practicing and eventually start to semi-understand what the hell I'm doing, so... I guess I'm going to keep curling.  Pray for me.

I confess... that I'm a GIANT baby.  At one point last night, I literally almost had a two-year-old tantrum.  I felt totally uncoordinated, I hated wearing the stupid slippy thing on my shoe that everyone insisted I had to try, my knees were killing me, and when I landed on my ass while trying to slide out of the thingies, I almost lost it.  Like, I spent a good five minutes blinking back tears and going back and forth between these two thoughts:  "I am NOT EVER going to be good at this, and I am NOT EVER going to be a curler.  I am SO not doing this all winter!" and "DO NOT CRY IN FRONT OF EVERYONE, YOU LOSER!  THEY ARE GOING TO THINK YOU'RE CRAZY!!!!"

I confess... the one part of curling I actually do like is when I'm supposed to be a sweeper but they don't actually need me to sweep, so I get to just shuffle/jog down the ice beside the rock.  That I can do all frigging night long, no problemo.

I confess... that after the stressful first night of curling was done, I ate a cheeseburger.  And then all was right with the world again.

I confess... that Brenda and Sue also introduced me to a delightful new drink last night that I'd never tried before... vodka, cranberry juice, and club soda... tasted like red Kool Aid to me, and it was soooo good!

I confess... that when I got home, I thought I'd crash quickly, but I was sooo wrong.  It took me forever to wind down.  I watched TV til almost midnight, and then couldn't fall asleep when I went to bed.  So, I'm a wee bit groggy this morning.

I confess... that I'm planning to finish off the Christmas decorating tonight and tomorrow!  I thought I'd get Tree #2 up in the dining room some night this week, but it never happened.  I'm running to Shawville after work to get new lights for this tree, then I'll come home and put it up, get orange slices drying in the oven, and hopefully get the popcorn garland made.  I'll get the rest of the dining room and kitchen decorated tomorrow and then I'm finished that part of the Christmas prep!  Phewf!

I confess... that it seems surreal to me that our company Christmas party is exactly one week from today.  I can't wait!  It's always so much fun!!

I confess... that I kind of want to have a Scandal binge session.  I don't think I actually have time this weekend to have a Scandal binge session, but if I can somehow work it in, I will.  I need me some serious time with President Fitz.

Happy Friday, dudes! Have a great weekend!   :)

The Rev is always excited to watch curling in the winter olympics, but I just don't get it.

Also, what season of Scandal are you on? I was never Team Fitz for some reason.
