Thanks, but I Think Not

A friend invited me to a Hallowe’en party in a couple of weeks. It is a costumed affair, of course.

I may change my mind the closer we get to the day, but you know? I’m just not feeling it.

Probably be hanging out with a bunch of folks that work for The Big Clam. Honestly, I’m tired of hanging out with a bunch of people that are spoiled working for an oil multinational and all they can do is BITCH about it. I don't fit with that group any more. If I ever did really.

Have a standing invite to an annual party as well, with not ex work related folks. But again, I’m just not feeling it. This is a bunch of the folks at a bar where I (used to *grins*) hang out.

Not spending so much time in bars is working out pretty good. I tend not to do stupid or at the very least unwise, shit when I don’t.

Right, going to go through the last few days mail, and then shower. Then I’ll GTFO. It’s getting warmish in here HA!

Got errands to run and I cannot stay in La Casita while it’s like this. Feel like I’ve been perspiring for 2 days now. Eewwe.

On an up note, I believe I’ve about finished my Holiday gift shopping. Pretty easy though. I have a really small list these days. Some of it is here, and i need to stop by the apt office and pick it up. I can put in a maintenance request at the same time. Actually, I have a couple. When it rains it pours, eh?

  • The wand for the blinds on my patio door snapped off. May I have another?
  • The chain for the light on the ceiling fan (Which I rarely use) has broken. And the lights are stuck on. May I have another?
  • Annnnnnnnnnnd the AC appears to be busted. Fix it please!
Question:

How the hell do ceiling fan blades get so damned dusty when they are almost always moving?

Halloween is my favorite. Going to go as Tracy Turnblad (Dori as KenNY Powers-resemblance in the wig is uncanny) and do a party at a hotel and hot tub it afterward.

I know lots of folks do Halloween big time, but other than a few fall decorations and giving out candy, I don't see the big deal. I think hubby and I went to one costume party over 30 years ago - first and last one! Too much fuss and bother for me.

You're about as interested in fancy dress parties as me! We just don't do halloween here, most of us. I'm glad.

Hope you get all your things about your apartment fixed, especially the a/c!

I really miss Halloween parties where everybody dresses up and has a good time. It's been years since I went to one. The thing is, for some reason, out there in Louisville everyone wants to go to bars to party. Not that I mind, but unless you've got the place reserved you have to endure people you don't know who get drunk and mad and want to fight somebody. Young guys are bad about that. Unfortunately, these days, young women are just as bad.

I have to think people don't want to mess up their places by having parties there. Dunno. It's a cultural thing out there I guess.

Wow, you have a lot of maintenance issues! And go you for already having your Christmas shopping done. Oh my, Christmas. I dread this time of year. Maybe this year will be better. :)
