06/16/08 - Who cares? I do! [Jun. 16th, 2008|10:18 pm]

He who eats alone chokes alone.  ~Proverb

I eat 9 out of 10 meals by myself and I've gotten into some pretty bad habits. Yes, I lick my plates clean and make strange farm animal sounds when no one is around. So what? As I begin my journey into cranky-old-man-dom I realize that I shouldn't give a $*% and it'd be nice to associate with other people who also don't give a $*%. I like licking my plates and mooing. Big deal.

My shameful manners have made me realize that I put way too much value on what other people think.

Yes, it's ridiculous to lap up sauce off a plate in public but who cares? I have to stop letting people's opinions be the deciding factor in everything I do especially over stupid things. Starting today I'm going to say what I mean more often. If someone asks me to go out and I don't want to I'll just let them know instead of making up a story about how a burglar stole all of my shoes and now I can't go anywhere because I'd be barefoot. This is going to be really hard for me but I'm going to stick to it for a week and see how it goes. Oh and I know that pie chart was pointless but I don't care. I felt like making one even thought it was stupid. I guess that's my first act of freedom, lol.

Anyway, the Father's Day gorging started on Saturday. We went to a buffet called Cima in a country club. No, I did not lick my plate clean there.

Mmm... unlimited food...

Dad & Juice

Mom & Juice

Mark & Coconut Juice

Lobster, Crab Legs, and Jellyfish! Weird! But I don't care what you think :)

Lobsters and Lamb chops. Baaaaaaa

It's $50 a person to eat there and it was really nice inside but the food wasn't very good. I had to force myself to stuff my face because I knew all I had waiting for me at home were frozen dinners. After that I went to my friend Allison's 80's themed birthday party and had a really nice time. I didn't take any pictures though because I didn't want everyone to think I was an Asian tourist. I have to get over that.

On Sunday we had my Uncle and Aunt and some of their family over to my parent's house for a BBQ. My mother told me to bring a slip and slide for their autistic son, Joshua. He got naked and just danced around the water. He doesn't care what people think.

Nothing goes with cake like a Margarita

I didn't know what gift to get my dad so I brokered a deal with him. Instead of buying him a ton of crappy gifts I said I would buy him something big and expensive but I would be absolved from getting him anything for the next 2 years. This includes Birthday, Father's Day, Christmas, and if I do something bad and have to make up for it with a gift. He told me he wanted a receiver for the entertainment center. I looked it up and it retails for $1,699. Geez. Luckily I found it for $1,049 online and it's being shipped to me this week.

There's just too much going on here

I figure 2 birthdays, a couple Christmases, and another Father's day. That works out to $209.80 per event. Not too bad. Hopefully it'll save me money in the long run.

Business has been ok but there's so much more I can do. I got killed on Ebay this week because of Father's day. Hopefully I'll make up for it with next weeks auctions:

Ebay Auctions for Next Week!!! :)

Other than that I haven't been up to anything except slowly going crazy. My roommate just shot a cork out of a wine bottle and it almost hit me in the eye. I told him I had a long day and would have snapped and smashed a chair over his head if it had hit me and he said it would have been worth it. I hope everyone had a good week. I look forward to not caring what you think :)

At least the drinks at the restuarant looked good...and your dad looked happy. I bet he will be even happier when his gift arrives. :)

I want some coconut juice!

I love the BBQ photos...especially your nephew daning around naked on the slip and side...pure coolness there. We all need to get naked or at least just have fun without worrying about what other people think sometimes.

You can have your coconut juice when your eye gets better! I'll take a picture of you drinking it with your camera :)

Mmm... Vegas :) I love Buca di Beppo! I'd go more often but they serve their food family style and I usually don't have anyone to eat with. I can only stand my parents for so long, lol.

Yes, that'll be my next trip. Actually, I'll go by myself. Screw it! I don't care if people see me eating giant meatballs alone. haha

Hope your'e well :)

Everytime I wore a shirt by you I got compliments, mostly from my boss.

Sorry there has been a delay in the proposal. It's just a bit tricky because it's unlike anything this company has done before. Plus I'm a bit overwhelmed with the job lately.

But I'll get er done soon and then we can go from there and seeeeee.

I love you.

Aww <3 I miss my super neighbor movie buddy that moved across the country to become a famous music writer :) I'm glad you liked the tees. People always ask me who that girl is modeling my shirts, lol.

Oh, no hurry about the proposal. Let me know if you need any help. Actually, if they don't want to do it I might just start a company that does it, haha. I've got the connections and the basic know how. I'd just need a little insider tip from my favorite super friend! :)

Talk to you soon!

I know you don't care what I think...

but I think your parents look like the most laid back human beings on the planet.

Also holy hell all that food looks good. What was the jellyfish like?
