amber: unplugged

I mostly stayed offline yesterday. I think it was my first weekday without a post in months.

Pardon me, as I spent the day recovering from a hangover that hung for the better part of the weekend.

I had so much fun on Saturday, you would have thought I was looking for fodder for my next installment of TMI Thursday.

(I wasn't. But, that sounds like a good excuse.)

The friend I was with said, "You know, I don't think I've been drunk since New Years."

"Neither have I!" I realized.

She and I were feeling really proud of ourselves, and toasted to that -- she with her MGD 64 and me with my full-flavored Coors Lite. Then I pointed out that we weren't even three weeks into 2010. Not that much of an accomplishment.

Still, bottoms up.

Well. It's early, world. I'm off to my first day of a week-long bank training to prepare for my new job, which starts next Tuesday, seven little days from today. I have to get myself to downtown Louisville by 9:00 this morning, which is sometimes a twenty minute commute and sometimes a one hour commute.

It's either blog now, before my coffee, or not at all.

So, I shall pour my coffee, empty my reader, try to comment on a few of the posts I missed yesterday, and hope I get to check back in this afternoon for your comments.

Oh, and don't even ask about my WIP progress from the weekend.

Don't even ask.

I've had quite a few days lately where I haven't even logged on, and though I miss it- I have to admit it's kinda nice to unplug every once in a while!!! And cheers to getting drunk!! haha I wish I could say I had only done it once since New Years...

I've been meaning to visit your blog, since we both have Wendy in common I figured you must be awesome. Now I'm wondering what took me so long! :)

I'm glad you had a great weekend! Can't say I've been drunk lately. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I got drunk.

By the way, I have an award for you at my blog:)

I haven't drank anything since New Years too. That's why I'm looking forward to my GNO on Friday! Woohoo!

Pssst! Amber, I wasn't REALLY moving. I've been getting over a hangover, too. From when I was eighteen:) Yeah, it's been THAT long since I've gotten drunk.
I start a new job next tuesday too. We're like twinners. Except the strongest drink I have had in 2010 was a Guava Monster, and you're a girl, and you have a career... okay if we're twins it's definately fraternal.

@ carissa - what's nice is posting in the morning and having comments waiting in the evening. :)

@ travener - damnitman, i said don't ask!!

@ diana - you know, I had been thinking the same about you! (onward to your blog in the next few.)

@ melissa - I can't wait to head over and see what you left for me!

@ jayme - MISS YOU SPICE. Also, couldn't see my blog @ pnc training. boospice.

@ shandal - GNO's are the best. :)

@ tina lynn - hmm, I'm on to you now. You weren't moving, you lushy liar.

@ j - oh, great. now I have a cyber crush on my brother?! :)

LOL; nothing wrong with time out to have fun off-line fun. Sometimes I get so caught up in the blogosphere I forget there's a real world. Nothing like a good hangover to bring that back into focus.
