Ramblings of A Tired Insomniac

12:24 a.m. and I'm still awake.  I've been trying to fall asleep since 10:00 p.m. but after laying in bed, tossing and turning, I gave up.  So here I am!  What's new kids? How was everyone's weekend?  Mine was okay.  Saturday night I was still mentally drained from the day before at work, that I made it a cheesy 80's movie kind of night.  I watched Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles and then just for kicks, I watched Grease, because everybody knows, "A hickey from Kinicky is like a Hallmark card." heh.  I love that movie! I annoy people when they watch it with me because I will follow along and say the lines either at the same time or before the actor says them.  I do that with West Side Story too, but instead of reciting lines, I sing!  -or try to anyway.  Sunday,  I lounged around the house for a bit before heading out to a jewelry party.  Truthfully, I only went because I wanted to get out of the house.  I needed distraction from my thoughts.  Anyway, I had a nice time. The jewelry that was being showcased was really nice. Some of it was gorgeous even! But too friggin expensive!  Interestingly enough, I've never been a "jewelry" kind of girl.  I mean, ok so I love wearing earrings and bracelets. And I'll wear rings sometimes.  But not always.  I do own a few "heirlooms" (okay, MY definition and others definition of heirloom is very different) that I wear on special occasions. I think for my birthday in October, I will buy myself a diamond ring.  I've never had one.  Sad, I know. And since this is going to by my 45th (ouch!  it even hurts to type that out) anniversary of my birth, I deserve something fab! Don't you think? Yeah, I thought you would.  Well, it's just that I was waiting and waiting for Prince Charming to do it but he's missing in action, probably hanging with the Lochness monster somewhere.  Bleh! I don't need no stinkin' prince to buy me diamonds. I'll do it myself.  So yeah, my birthday gift to me this year, will be a diamond ring.  Yay me! I''ve been looking a certain ones that I'm interested in, no hurry though.  I've got plenty of time to choose.  Where was I? Oh yes, the jewelry party.  I left after an acceptable amount of time had passed, and came home.  Didn't watch the Oscars. Watched a Lifetime movie instead and indulged in chocolate ice cream.  Sooooo not on my diet.  I know, I know, I was bad tonight. But it was soooo good!   Sometimes being bad is a necessity. That's it, my weekend in a nutshell.  Jealous?  I thought so.

Hmm, I'm going to go pass out now.

Monday's on deck peeps.  Make it count!

I would definately get that diamond! I'd love to watch Grease and Westside Story with you and sing along to both movies! I was quite young when Westside came out and saw it at the theatre. I got the record and sang, "I Feel Pretty," while dancing around my room.
Grease- My favorite is ? "Tell me more, tell me more, did she put up a fight!" I will say I took my daughters to see it and was horrified when Sandy changed into a slutty looking girl. Holy crap! My daughter Sandy, who was 12 at the time, asked me, "She turned bad didn't she Mom?"

Those jewelry parties! Ugh! I have been to so many and buy stuff I don't need for way too much money. Still? I go. Tsk, tsk.

The Frisky Virgin said...

Love those movies! Frankly, it sounds like you had a perfect weekend! No man-stress. lol

I totally think you should buy yourself a diamond. Why wait for a guy to buy you one? Of course, you know what they say? The minute you resolve to buy yourself a diamond, is the second a man will walk into your life, with a diamond to follow. :)

David Batista said...

Oh yes, I'm sooooo jealous! :) I'm a connoisseur of some good chocolate ice-cream. Strawberry would be better, but choco comes in a strong runner-up. Yes indeed!

Sounds like you had a great weekend, actually. Now back to the Monday grind, eh?

Yvonne said...

LD- our slumber party would totally rock! lol

Belle- we'd drive everyone nuts! hahaha Let's do it!!!

Joy Project - I did, thank you!

Kelley - Right? It's like we know they are horrible but we still go and endure it! hahhaa

FV -Hmmm, reverse psychology? hahah Maybe THAT would work! :)

David - Chocolate is da BEST! lol Yes, Monday is done. 4 more days til the weekend!!! :)

Cinderita said...

OMG. Sixteen Candles is my favorite favorite favorite movie from that era!! And since you haven't written for a few days, does that mean you finally fell asleep?? lol

'Yellow Rose' Jasmine said...

Love, love, love that you will gift yourself with a diamond ring. Good for you!
So fun to watch those movies and sing along. Sounds like a really good time.

Yvonne said...

Rita -hahaha, I did!!!

YRJ- I love those movies! And yeah, I think I deserve the rock
-or in my case, pebble on my finger. hahaha

I think that'll be a wonderful gift for yourself. A girl has got to have at least a little bit of diamonds.
