So yep, I had a weird weekend…
Thursday night was very cool tho: had a really nice Cthulhu session, even tho another one of the party is completely insane now. The log is on http://www.nyarlathotep.be, but only the handouts are in English, I’m afraid, the rest is in Dutch.
On Friday I had to do a lot of administration for school, which I truly and thoroughly hate. Forgot to have lunch, went to school for deliberations of the summer exams. Why on earth did I make them retake their exams ? The principal overrules my decisions anyway ! Student A: 44% on the Xmas exam, 24% in June, the principal forced me to give him another chance: 42% this time. The guy passed, can go to second year of Latin. WTF ????
Bart called me in the mean time to ask me if I wanted to accompany him on a BBQ that night with his boss and his colleagues. I couldn’t really say no…
Anyway, I was pretty annoyed by the time I left the school at 16.45u, way later than I had foreseen. Bart had been nagging about getting pads for his expresso machine, so I decided to go to the supermarket first before stopping at Faust’s, since I simply love the guy (wanted to bring some for Faust too, since he asked me too (he got an expresso machine last week) and had convinced me that I love him too). If I ever have the preposterous idea again of going to a supermarket on a Friday afternoon at 17.00, hit me ! The worst thing was that the shop’s inventory differ from shop to shop, so I ended up without the pads (“Sorry m’am, that item is not in our racks yet”) and with a really nice headache.
Arrived at Faust only at 17.40 (bloody traffic!), just in time to have a quick cup of coffee and to leave again, getting ready for that BBQ. Sigh. BBQ was really ok tho: real nice food, pretty nice company too. I ended up having not too bad a time, I must admit.
Saturday I slept pretty long, got all
fancy dressed and make up on and nice jewellery, cos I had this
reception to attend/help with. My eldest brother, still single, has this
bank office, and it was the official opening of the new location. There
was this huge reception with all kinds of drinks, hot and cold
munchies, and loads of people. I think there were about 500 people in
all. They all wanted to say hi to my bro and hand him a present, mostly
flowers or champagne. I had to be there to take the gifts and put them
away, to chat a little to the people (I know most of them too), take
photographs and play the hostess. Some people even thought I was his
wife, LOL ! Anyway, this lasted from 15.00 till 21.00h, my feet hurt !!!
My younger bro, his gf, my mum and the two assistants in the office ran
around the whole time with glasses, drinks, hors d’oeuvres… Bart
wasn’t there, had to go to a memorial service for his granddad, also
with drinks and food afterwards for the family, which he had to help
I kinda had plans to go to the movies at 10, and afterwards to a goth party with faust and Jurryt, but I never made it in time for the movie, and my feet hurt way too much for dancing. Luckily, when Bart came home, he gave me a swell foot massage… Isn’t he the greatest ? :-)))
Today was just a lazy day: slept long, had expresso and croissants, played some AC… Watched the MTV Awards while knitting on this ever so cute baby jacket, aniseed green, for a friend’s unborn baby… Took a long hot bath, watched some more telly…
Tomorrow first school day…
