A Birthday Cold and Christmas Carols

Well, its offical. 28. My birthday was this past weekend, and I decided to skip class on Friday and take an extended vacation. When your birthday is the weekend, and you have a close friend who's birthday is the day before yours, its mandatory to take an extra day. It's called "Being a good friend, and a lazy student". I digress.

I drive home thursday night, and I was tormented about whether or not to skip my thursday class as well, but decided it against it, and wound up getting home just in time to eat dinner and watch survivor. I dont know if it was the 2 solid weeks of studying that I did, and then having nothing to do, but within that hour that I was relaxing, the worst cold set in, and I lost my voice....I went to bed at 10pm. I woke up friday, and I felt like shit.....I was SO sick, and although it was my friends b-day spent the day in bed, and was a total trooper and went out drinking that night. I only lasted until 1am, but it's better than nothing.

Saturday, my birthday I had plans to go shopping, dinner out and drinks. Well, since I could barely make it up the stairs without passing out, I ditched the shopping, and visited instead. We went for dinner, but let me tell you that i was home by 11:30, and in bed by 12:30. Special thanks goes out to the lovely girl for driving, and to the rest of them for not making me wear a SARS mask the entire time I was with them. *if any of you are sick today, my regrets*

Sunday was family birthday day, and it was a good time. Even 2 old friends from highschool showed up which was a complete surprise, as I havent seen them in months!!! Drove back to school, and of course, since its monday....i feel GREAT!!! No more sickypants! Ugh. Colds are so inconvenient!

However, I do have to say, horror beyond horrors last night, driving home started a chain of bad events that left me feeling bitter and spiteful!

Driving home last night, pitch black, no cars on the road, flipping through radio stations, until I find a station....I've got "scan" going, and as it flips from one station to the next, I hear a familiar twang of a song as it skips to the next station. My attention is focused onto the radio, as I stare in disbelief...."It CANT be" I think to myself..."it's only November 6th".....but as I press the scan button back once, it flips to the previous station.....and what do I hear??? Thats right people...CHRISTMAS CAROLS!!! An entire station devoted to Christmas carols....I've even got a mouth full of hot chocolate which I just about choke on. Christmas carols in November.....What is the world coming to??? Do you know, the nearest pharmacy has had christmas decorations up since the end of SEPTEMBER??? This isnt the north pole you know *DESPITE what every american thinks of canadians living in igloos*.....Sigh....Christmas.....48 shopping days left.

I come home......to no messages. I shouldnt be surprised as I just spent a glorious weekend with everyone I could have ever wanted to see in a 3 day time frame...but there's one person who didnt call.....someone who i've come to care about deeply, as we've been quasi involved for the past 2 years. But, he blew it off, and didnt bother. Fucker.....*this is what i meant when I said that people dont do romantic things for me, remembering to call me on my birthday would be good enough*

My land lord pounds on my door at 10am, becuse something is wrong with the plumbing in the shower in the apartment above mine, so they have to come into my bathroom and try to look from underneath. At which point, he takes a sledehammer, and pounds it into the ceiling.....6 times. Leaving a gigantic gaping hole in the ceiling, and Plaster all over the shelf, the floor, inside the tub and the counter, and whatever was on the counter, and the shelf.....and then he left, and said he'd be back tomorrow....leaving me to clean it up. Mother fucker.

I'm go back to bed, as I am still mildly sick, and have class until 10pm, I want to rest up.....but my fucking asshole 18 year old neighbors have their TV set to "decimate" and its all i can hear since their tv is touching the wall where the top of my bed is. Not that it would matter, its so loud. I'm SO pissed off about things at this point, that I fling the covers off of me, go out into the sitting area, unhook my stereo, bring the entire thing into my bedroom, find the most annoying station I can find on the radio, turn the speakers against the wall, and turn it up as loud as it can go, and left it on for over an hour.....When i finally turned it off....it was dead silent on the other side. I'm a spiteful bitch...and i'll be the FIRST one to admit it.

I wonder what ELSE can go wrong today.....

Princess Pessimism said...

Lindsey said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU...HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCESS PESSIMISM...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Better late than never my dear. :0)
It so sucks that you had to be sick the whole freakin' weekend. But at least you got to see your friends..I know that was important. And I'm with you, there's just something about coming home and having not ONE SINGLE message blinking on the machine. Very depressing. I especially can't believe that dipshit didn't even bother to call you. Oh well. His loss.

And for the record..we are once again one in the same...the last boy that ever did anything romantic for me was a boyfriend when I was 17. How sad is that?

Miss Ash said...

The bathroom story reminds me of Sarah's apt. Same thing except it was her ceiling that was leaking. The guy came to "fix" it and left a huge hole, plaster everywhere and taped a cardboard box over the hole that kept falling when we sat on the toilet uggh he said he'd be back in a few days LOL.

Princess Pessimism said...

Hrenesto - Thanks...and happy birthday to you

Linny - You know what? Fuck him! That's what I have to say. New year, time to get rid of old baggage....Thanks for the wishes!!!

Miss Ash - When I heard him smash the ceiling, that's EXACTLY what I thought of....I hope you're listening to Steven Lewis tonight....

Px said...

there's not much i can say that we haven't said already
sorry to hear about your bathroom though...and the shits next door, did you play them the radio station with xmas carols on?
a guy in halls when i was at uni played the birdie song (not sure if you'll know what that is) on repeat one weekend when he'd gone home

Cynthia said...

Happy Belated Birthday! That really sucks that you were sick all weekend. Sorry that the guy didn't call, but you're probably better off anyway. Asshole.

I also heard Christmas music the other day and I was stunned. Seriously. . . it's not even Thanksgiving yet. I think the radio stations and the stores start celebrating Christmas earlier and earlier every year. Ugh.

Katie said...

happy belated birthday pp!!!

sorry you were sick...but her it sounds like you still had a little bit of fun.

i don't even want to think about christmas right now....i dont have the money for christmas....

and for that guy that did not call..fuck him!

Natalia said...

Yaay BDAY! I am also feeling like going back to bed and not coming out for a few days. But, alas, while my kids would be happy...I can't do that to them. So maybe I will stay in during the weekend.

cristal said...

Hernesto G said...

Sexy Suburbanite said...

Oh no! What a sad tale of birthday woes! I do hope you're feeling better soon =)

Trib said...

Happy Birthday! Again! One more time: Happy Birthday! This morning I sneezed and my brain fell out. I've been feeling a little OCD since then. Happy Birthday!

Jennifer said...

PP, I feel like ass today - the next time you two disease vectors want to come and visit you have to go through quarantine first!

Princess Pessimism said...

Yrautca - Thanks *the way you wrote that sounds like marilyn monroe sang it*

PX - No, I couldnt play them christmas music through the walls, that's torture for me as well.

Katie & Cynthia - Thanks girls. I know i'm better off without him...still sucks though

Natalia - I ALWAYS loved it when my prof didnt show up....LOL

Cristal - Ya, I feel old every day....

Hernesto - Dunno, we are trying to organize a trip for that coast for next year......

S.Subs - I ALSO hope I feel better soon!!!

Trib - Where have YOU been??? LOL...MIA. I think OCD is mildly fun.

Jenny - Awww pumpkin. I'm sorry.....I also got quite a few other people sick. It will be completely gone in a week. Trust me!

Miss Ash said...

Jennifer you must be referring to Dawn and PP as the disease vectors as i did not stay at your place that weekend :)

Hernesto G said...

Ontario, Canada is one of the only places in the world where you can marry a fag but you can't smoke one

Jennifer said...

Ash,
If you show up at my place with strep throat one more time, I swear! Everyone watch out for Ash, she'll come to visit and then call the next day to say that she's got strep. Then there was that time she sat in a full hot tub for hours with us, then later announced that she had some kind of weird crotch rash that no one could identify!

Princess Pessimism said...

LOL...JENNY!!! Oh you're EVIL.

Miss Ash said...

I had Strep once......and never ever have i had a crotch rash...unlike Jennifer who went to the doctor's office and wrote on that piece of paper.Horrible Crotch Rash to let them know what she had :)
My rash was on my legs and arms....not my genitals.

Jennifer said...

Yep, it's true, I once had the worlds worst alergic reaction which resulted in a horrible awful terrible painful crotch rash, which is what I wrote on the clipboard at the doctor's office under symptoms. God bless that nurse for not laughing too hard!
But, unlike Ash, until I found out that my symptoms were the result of an alergic reaction and not something I could give to other people, I kept my crotch away from others!

Princess Pessimism said...

OHH....Cant we just get along. Yes Ash had a rash *rhymed!!!* YES she didnt know what it was, and sat in a hottub for hours exposing others to this mystery disease before she informed anyone.

YES Jenny had some kind of rash, that was caused by allergic reation, in a not so nice place....HOWEVER, hers was legitimate, and she knew the cause.

I bet that nurse STILL tells that story....just like us and Peter's most embarassing moments with that man, and the anal beads...LOL. I wonder what ever happened to Peter.

Miss Ash said...

LOL Jennifer was telling those guys we met last night at the bar the anal bead story :D

Princess Pessimism said...

Oh Peter's anal bead story.....that one will never go away! Arent we lucky that I can woo the gay man like no one else. LOL

Jennifer said...

PP, you truly are the Pied Piper of Homosexuals. I was actually there again with Neil last night - who also heard Peter's anal bead story and said that he's still laughing about it too.
