It's almost midnight, in two minutes to be precise. And I'm still awake. Wide awake actually. Great. Because that's really going to help me in the morning when I have to get up. It's the end of the weekend already. What did you do? Was it fun? Aside from the heartbreak the Cougars caused on Saturday, my weekend was grand!
When last we met, I was totally hyped for U of H's football game that was going to take place on Saturday morning. Well, as some of you may already know, there wasn't much of a game that took place. The Cougars didn't just lose. They were annihilated. They choked. There is no other way of saying it. This was not the team who up until Saturday's debacle, had a perfect record of 12-0! The game was bad, this coming from a woman that doesn't even really like football. You would think that Houston sports fans would be used to this by now. Defeat. I mean, I don't know what our founding father Sam Houston did to piss off the universe, but our sports teams just can't catch a break! And we, the loyal fans, suffer through season after season, playoff after playoff, and always come up short. Oh sure, the Astros finally made it to the World Series a few years ago, but just the mere thought of how that came out, still gives me hives. And sure, the Houston Rockets have gone to the the Championship, but that was so long ago, I can barely remember. Are we, as many people have suggested, cursed beyond repair? I mean, how much more loss can this city take? It's like a really bad joke. Haha, it's not funny anymore, make it stop.
Moving on. I bought my Christmas tree today. Guess how much I paid for it? Nope. Wrong. I paid $16.00 for my 6 foot fir tree! That's right, bargain-arama! I normally spend close to $60-$80 bucks for that type of tree. And I was totally expecting to pay that this time too. I walked up and down the tree lined aisles with my mom in tow. We inspected and prodded the trees. I caught "my" tree perched up against the wall. Upon closer inspection, I fell in love with it. It was so pretty and green and just perfect! I didn't see a price tag on it so I went and asked one of employees for help. He took a few minutes to give me a price but when he came back he was holding a tag that read "19.99". Huh? Clearly a mistake. But he seemed really sure and who was I to argue right? Right. I proceed to the cashier to pay and then to my surprise, the cashier says, "That'll be $16.00" What? Again, I kept my mouth shut and paid her before she told me she messed up or something. They loaded my tree onto my car and I drove off.
Falalalala la la la la!
