This seemed like a really long week. I'm glad it's Friday! It's raining cats and dogs here, and we are supposed to have our office cookout at my supervisor's house. Apparently, she has a lot of land. This will be my first time attending, as I wasn't here last year when they had the cook out. I hope she got a tent, or something. Otherwise, I'll be traipsing through her house, because I refuse to be outside in the rain! LOL

I went skating last night. Thursday nights are a slow night, not many people, unless they have a party or a fundraiser. We use Thursdays for practice. One of my old co-workers said she was coming out, but she ended up cancelling on me. RB said he was tired, and didn't know if he'd make it out...but of course, when I pulled in the parking lot, he was there. We had a good practice session. At one point, we're skating together doing this move and he says, "we make a good sure you don't want me??" I just busted out laughing! He caught me totally off guard with that one.

I came in to work this morning, and my co-worker had forwarded this email. Allegedly, Applebee's was giving out a $50 gift certificate if you forwarded the email to 9 people. Yeah, right! So, in my usual fashion, I proceeded to Google and found the link to the article stating that the email is false, as well as the link to Applebee's website where they state that the email is false. I then replied to everyone with those links. I wish folks would research, before just forwarding the madness. Especially on work email! Hello?

Taste of Charlotte is this weekend. Crappy weather, but I guess I'll check it out. Anybody doing anything exciting this weekend?

I'm not. Just homework. Wait, I'm debating on going to a cookout, but we'll see.

You need to go ahead and go. Take your stresses out on someone at the card table. LOL! :)

"You sure you don't want me?" Awww. How could you not feel sorry for this guy? This is heartbreaking. Of course, I'm just an outsider. I'm pretty sure if I were in your shoes I'd be highly annoyed by now.

Nothing major planned this weekend. There's a wine festival on Saturday that I'm pretty excited about. I'm volunteering at one of the booths so I can get free parking and free entrance to the event. The $30 I saved by doing this will go to a nice bottle :-)

He said it in a joking! Sometimes, I do feel sorry for him. I try to look at it from his point of view. But at the same time, I've told him how I feel....I feel like he's just trying to change my mind. If he would just chill, he'd probably be a cool friend. He just doesn't want to be in the FriendZone.

Nothing puts a smile on my face like "free!" You worked that out pretty good. I need to learn how to get into more events for free. LOL!
