So apparently unrelenting boredom is an excellent motivator for blupdating one’s personal blog. I had no idea. I am working the front desk at my college of nursing today, which means other than answering phones, there isn’t much to do. Add to that the little fact that it’s Spring Break this week and how the phone is most decidedly not ringing off the hook and you have a recipe for complete and utter soul-sucking boredom. Seriously. I tried to get my sister to entertain me, but she’s all “I have a job, I don’t have time to entertain you…” Rude. Okay, she wasn’t rude about it all. I just need entertainment. Clearly it’s up to me to relieve my ennui.
So what shall we talk about, gentle reader?
Wow, okay, so Spring Break was like three weeks ago and I never finished this post. Know what happened? I couldn’t think of anything to talk about. That’s just sad. It’s not like nothing has been going on. There’s been somethings. For example, I took a couple of days off during Spring Break and devoted them to complete self-absorption. The parentals were on vacation so it was just me and the dogs. Thursday and Friday were spent with friends doing fun friendy things like movies and rock barrels and IKEA, etc. Had dinner Friday night at the Fort Worth Food Truck Park (Lee’s Grilled Cheeses-a food truck devoted to grilled cheese sandwiches. What is not to love there??) Saturday I slept in, read the newspaper, watched Bones and Vampire Diaries DVDs and went to bed early. Sunday I slept in, read the newspaper and drank Dad’s superior “Daddy Coffee”, finished reading Kim Harrison’s newest, watched some more Bones DVDs and then went to bed early.
Then weekend before last, I went to that cosmopolitan metropolis known as Beaumont with mah bestie. She received an academic award because she’s a smartie-pants. We would have stayed in that sophisticated city, but we decided Galveston was more to our liking so we spent the rest of the weekend there. We…walked on the beach (sweet!), collected sea shells, ate at Gaido’s sister restaurant, Casey’s (less than fresh, should’ve sucked it up and gone to Gaido’s), walked along the Strand, stared longingly at the Port of Galveston where the Triumph was sitting in dock waiting to cruise to Cozumel, got massively sunburned (just me), stayed in a crap hotel (but who cares where you sleep??), had breakfast at Waffle House (fan-freaking-tastic) and headed back to Fort Worth. Plus, we stopped at Buc-cee’s twice, on the way there (tasty hot chocolate!) and on the way back (solarcaine!!). I may have to do a separate post on the marvels of Buc-cees. It’s like a little gas station theme park right in the middle of 1-10. It’s a thing of beauty. Would you like a couple of pics of the road trip? TOO BAD! You’re getting a couple anyway. 🙂
In East Texas on the road to Beaumont, pretty amirite?
This badass bridge between Beaumont and Port Arthur (I thought it was cool anyway…)
Galveston beach…got there early in the a.m. to watch the sun come up, but it was already kind of crowded.
So, see?? Stuff.
I think this qualifies as a blupdate. Go, me! Now go forth and enjoy your day. . .
