Love is in the air

Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!
And now it's time for weekend update. This weekend was all about love. Love, love, love. Everywhere I turned I found myself or others loving. All over the place. By Sunday afternoon it was getting pretty nauseating. I felt like if I loved one more thing that I would explode & pink confetti hearts would pop out of my body.

Friday night I enjoyed a game of Scrabble. What ever happened to people playing board games? Board games are officially the new video games. Video games were over after Atari. All down hill. Except for Mario Party.

Saturday was the biggest contributer of love. With that whole wedding & all. The bride & groom wanted to show everyone their love. They sufficiently expressed their love to us by providing a chocolate fountain. Have you ever experiences one of these? They are creatures of god, I tell you. This gave me an idea. Why only enjoy this sort of bliss at weddings? Shouldn't I be this happy everyday? Yes. It's official. I NEED a chocolate fountain as a permanent fixture in my apartment. So the wedding, especially the dessert table, was a complete success & the bride looked smashing & the groom was all smiles & I found no hot bachelors to sweep me off of my feet but that was okay. Wha? Okay? Yes, it is. Because I'm bypassing all of the dating hubbub & getting married. His name is Pat. We decided to get married in college but I wanted to sow my wild oats for a while after school & now I'm ready to not work & sit around & go to the country club & play tennis & eat expensive food on someone else's dollar. Yes, siree bob. Maybe we'll move back to the suburb where we grew up & have babies & name one of them Buffy or Sterling or Paris.

Instead of a diamond ring I want a chocolate fountain.

Late in the wee hours. And when I say wee I mean 1, I returned to my home and set out to get some stuff done. What might one do at 1 a.m.? Why, open a bottle of wine & do some writing. That's what. So that's what I did until the wine was gone & the weer hours had come & I was done pretending to be a fancy writer. I also had a bit of a relapse in these wee hours when I thought that Fiona Apple should be the soundtrack of the night. Oh Fiona. I love you. (see, more love) Oh Fiona. I can't listen to "When the Pawn" when I'm at home drinking wine & writing my little stories at 2:30 in the a.m. In fact, I shouldn't be listening to you at all because you know me too well. And I know how I feel when I listen to you too much. You see, I'll start listening to her & then can't stop after just one or two songs. The whole album. I've missed golden opportunities because I just couldn't turn her off. So I know, how I know.

Then I thought of the chocolate fountain & snuggled into my bed for sweet, chocolate dreams. More love to come, I just need to take a love break real quick-like.

Yeah. Chocolate fountains are the new tiramisu (remember when it was all "ooooo. tiramisu. so exotic). My wedding was in Downers Groveish. Oak Park kicks some serious ass, though. My dad lived there when I was growing up. La la loved it.

I've never seen a chocolate fountain! It looks pretty dank.

I'm a big Scrabble fan myself. Just this weekend I tried a new board game--Loaded Questions. You MUST buy it. It's hilarious.

I totally will. We're having a Family Feud night this week (Thursday or Friday night, not concrete yet). One of my friends totally went out & surveyed 100 people. If you're in HP & are interested, let me know. The more the merrier. As long as you're not lame & your blog's not lame & you comment on my blog so I'm assuming you're safe as a non-lamoid.
