I'm all a-boot the Fun

I have been in a major funk. Like, major major. It’s been happening for two or three weeks now. Not only do I have no interest whatsoever in exercising or eating right, but I’m in kind of a professional slump as well. Put those two things together and it’s like they make each other even worse by happening at the same time. I think that’s why I was extra excited about these crazy Canadians coming into town on Thursday.

I mean, seriously. I even told hubs on Tuesday and Wednesday that I wished Lindsey and Evan were here already because I was in need of fun. All my funkiness and three weeks of being sick has given me serious cabin fever.

Lindsey and I made plans over the phone Wednesday night and as we were hanging up, I got very excited when I thought she was about to say, “I’m so excited to meet you!” but then she said, “I’m so excited to meet Pants!”  So yeah. Awkward. When she got to my house the next night, it took her exactly four minutes to find Pants and molest her.

Pants definitely looks like she’s loving that lovin’ in her own way. That furry diva is so popular.

After Lindsey and Pants got their snuggle on, the four of us headed downtown to our first stop, Mucho. (I have been calling it Muchos for two years. Very disappointed to find out there’s no S.)

Mucho is the home of my favorite drink in all the land, the Eola 101.

That’s tequila, champagne, agave, lime, and kitten tears. Dee-lish.

So, if you read Lindsey’s blog and think, “that sounds like a fun girl,” you would not be wrong. We ended up going to several places, having several tasty beverages, and taking pictures I don’t recall that will probably end up on her blog. The night ended with Lindsey telling our bartender he looked like the devil. (He did by the way. Straight up devil.) It was a fun night. Really fun. I love meeting someone for the first time and having so much to talk about. Why do I meet such amazing bloggers that live so far away? It’s not fair.

The fun didn’t end on Thursday. I drove down to Bradenton on Saturday night to see her and Evan again before they went back to stupid, far away Toronto. From now on, I’m drugging all my favorite bloggers and keeping them in the basement so they can never leave me.

  1. of course I am the first nerd to comment on this! haha i am just so excited/jealous of your guys fun time. and also a little jealous that she got to meet Pants!
    glad to hear you guys had an awesome time though! sometimes that helps a slump.. but sometimes it makes you (okay, or at lest me) want to drink more and be more slumpier 🙂 haha

  2. Please. Drug me and keep me in your basement. Save me from myself.

    Glad you guys had so much fun! I might be a little jealous, but I’m going to pretend I’m still your #1 girl. MUAH!

    Oh the ever elusive “s.” You have no idea how many people I have had to correct when it comes to Fred Meyer. I swear EVERYONE I know calls it Fred Meyer’s. No, there is no S. And no…I’m not bitter about it at all. 😉

  4. Someday I will drink again. Glad you guys had fun 🙂

    Hope you’ve passed the funk. Nothing worse than a funk you know you are in, but you can’t get out of. It’s like days and days of PMS. No fair. Do Canadians really say “about” differently – I don’t hear it, but then again I’m Canadian. In case you AREN’T out of your funk: 1. Your hair looks great (as always). 2. You and F look so happy together in pix – which is lovely to see! 3. You are very funny (and sarcastic, which is a beautiful combo) 4. (this one might hurt) – if you eat better and exercise, you will FEEL better – don’t you hate that it has to go in that order. Sorry I had to get mean on the last one – it’s for your own good.

      I’ve only met one Canadian (through work) that said about differently. Lindsey and Evan definitely have accents for certain words, just not that one. And thank you for #1 – #3. You are too sweet. I didn’t like #4 though. Not one bit. How dare you say sensible things! (I’m officially on Day 2 of trying to de-funk.)

  6. I have a few Canadian friends, and one in particular is hilarious when she includes ‘Ehh” in her emails and messages. Why do all the cool and fun people always seem to live the farthest away? It sounds like you had a crazy fun time together!.

    I feel you on the slumpiness. I have been in it too. It must be something in the universe. Yes. That’s it.

  9. I loved this post! I tried to comment on it four times on Monday but my phone wasn’t having it. And I loved meeting you, Fabian and Pants! Thanks again for showing us such a fun time. Our bartender really did look like the devil. And you may drug and kidnap me any time. Actually you probably missed your chance on the way home, I don’t think I would have fought you off…
