Four hours, one I-95 traffic/incorrect directions incident, and one boring tour of [place of work] later and I finally make it back home. So much for that "To Do" list. I need a nap.

At least you got sushi. You did get sushi, right?

Didactic Pirate said...

Your thumbs need a nap. Can't believe you text in complete sentences.

Krista said...

Who is the G-Man? Is this a new OBG cast member or just a second nickname for a pre-existing member? If so, did he seriously call you beautiful? And did you really text in such lengthy sentences or using more poetic license with this?

One Blonde Girl said...

@ Logical Libby- Yes, yes I did. Yummy.

@ DP- Yes, they do. I hate texting. Almost enough to put aside my utter hatred for talking on the phone. Almost.

@ Krista- Apparently you don't keep up, huh? The G-Man was previously known as Gregarious, which I got tired of typing. And yes, that word was used. It kind of made me throw up in my mouth. (Wait a minute... are you inferring that I'm NOT beautiful?) And yes, these were the texts, word-for-word, letter-for-letter, poor punctuation-for poor punctuation.

Krista said...

Yes, I must have missed that somewhere along the line. I missed a couple of posts while out of town.

No, I was not inferring that you are not beautiful. I was gagging at the fact that he used that word.

"all the cool people are unemployed." HA HA HA. LOVE it!

i-95 is a nightmare!

Just reading that text conversation wore me out. I hope the sushi was good.
