WoW: Nothing. Well, besides harvesting some crops and using my imperial silk cooldown on my mage. So... nothing.
RL: Went to Jacksonville with my girlfriend on Friday, to help out with a baby shower/5 year old's birthday party. Of course, this was a Filipino baby shower/birthday party. About 150 people showed up, and activities ranged from an inflatable bounce house, to an outdoor trampoline, to a water balloon toss, to beer pong, to (of course) karaoke. The entire shindig lasted from 3:00 until midnight. We served drinks: bellinis, peach mojitos, wine, Bahama Mama jello shots, and Shirley Temples (for the kids). Honestly, I think my girlfriend's cousin (who organized the drinks and decorations for her friend) made it harder than it needed to be; everyone would have been better off serving themselves instead of waiting for us to come around, the trays were too small, the plastic flute glasses too shaky (we dropped about half a dozen before we decided to nix the serving trays), and we ran out of jello shots within an hour. I think it would have been better by dropping the decorations, making a small pitcher of the non-alcoholic drink, and dedicating the rest of the budget to booze (especially jello shots). Still, it all worked out fine.
Sunday was similar, as there was a second baby shower; only around 70 people though. Felt like a fish out of water, as I couldn't understand any of the conversation (boo, Tagalog), and I towered over all the people. Also went to church with her very religious Southern Baptist parents... yeesh. I'm too cynical for traditional services. Oh, and offended when I hear things like "Christians don't need years of training to be therapists; they have the Holy Spirit inside them! They're naturally superior to these so-called 'health professionals!' In fact, non-Christian therapists believe in 'survival of the **** they're secretly believing that their patients are weak and should die! When you have troubles, turn to God and your fellow believers; don't trust in secular quack doctors."
Yeah, not thrilled... but at least it's better than the last time I went, when abortion was compared to throwing 2-year old's into the Nile for crocodiles to feast upon like in Moses's time.
I didn't drive back to Tampa until this morning, so I'm running on fumes right now. The afternoon is going to be a challenge... might need to go get an energy drink to make it through. But I'm looking forward to some ME time this evening... well, me and WoW Edited, Apr 15th 2013 10:14am by LockeColeMA
