Star Trek, Wolverine, Shopping And A BBQ!!

Another Good Weekend Notch on my belt!

I decided to treat myself this week. I haven't been spending money, even when I got my tax refund, go me! So I went to the galleria and bought a few things. I actually bought six pairs of shoes!! I have NEVER bought that many shoes at once in my entire life! It was quite exciting. I bought some jewelry and tops too.

I really spoiled myself. I got a manicure a pedicure and got my hair did! I think I'm "spent", at least for a while.

After I got my hair done on Friday, we went to go see Wolverine. I liked it!! My brothers were complaining that it strayed from the comics. Yes it did, but it was still entertaining. The one thing that bugged me was that Gambit was making cards float, like mind
control or something. But Gambit can't do that in the comics. So that was annoying, but the rest was very entertaining.

Saturday was my boss' birthday party. It was at The Parlor in Santa Monica, and it was 80s themed. I wasn't sure how I was going to pull a costume together, but I did it! I decided I wanted to go as a Ghostbuster. I found a tan shirt at Salvation Army and some cute tan shorts at JC Penney's that I can wear this summer. I already had gloves. Then, it was crazy, I was going to try to find some black fabric to make arm bands, and I was looking on my bed for something, when I foud and arm sleeve my mom had made YEARS ago when I was minnie mouse. It was made out of black leggings. We cut it into arm bands. It was so random that it was on my bed. I mean I literally hadn't seen this thing since I was like 9, and it just randomly shows up when I need it. I was Spengler, glasses and all:

The party itself was a blast. I played beer pong agaisnt a guy that looked kind of like Matthew McCounaghey (sp?). My partner I were awesome. Unfortunately, they had to put the beer pong table away before we claim ultimate victory. We had like 8 cups left while the guys had about 5, so I called a win on our side. Of course they still said they were undefeated.

The bartender was VERY good looking. I really wanted to talk to him more, but he was so good-looking I just kind of froze up at the thought of talking to him. Now had I not been interested. Oh I would have been witty all get out! *sigh*

I was people-watching, something I enjoy doing at parties. They had rented out the upstairs section but random people were still coming up. It was awesome seeing people's faces when they saw all the 80s madness and was wondering what was going on. I met another gal named Catherine. Dawn had introduced me to her. We were having a good time. A few guys came up to us talked but we had our sights set on the bartender. I decided to go sit at the bar where I would be more likely to talk to him, seeing as how he wouldn't be able to come up to me;-)

While I was sitting there, a group of guys came by me. They commented on my costume, and then one of them started to talk to me. He was telling me about his job and how he has to commute from OC to downtown LA. I said I used to work at Disneyland so I know what that's like. Then he said he used to work at Disneyland! We found out we were there at the same time, both in foods. Small world! He was pretty cute and nice, so I continued to chat with him. His friends had left him, so he had to go find them. But he got my number first. I can tell I wouldn't really get a long with his friends, but he seems cool.

The rest of the party was fun, I hung out with Catherine most of the time. We're gonna try to hang out, we got along really well. I think we could be good friends!

Yesterday, my brother invited me to a screening of Star Trek. Before the movie, we went to his friend's BBQ. They had just moved into a new place and invited a bunch of people over. They were really cool. I'm usually weary of meeting new girls, but they were fun! I wanna hang out with them again. It's always a little awkward hanging out with my bro and his girl friends cuz there's a little flirting, and I'm never sure where I should look, haha!

Then his other friend who was going with us to the screening met us there. As it turned out, she went to college with Jamie, one of the girls who lived there! They did the girl scream when they saw each other, it was pretty funny and random. They hadn't seen each other since graduation.

After a while we headed off to Paramount Studios for the screening. I was actually excited to see the movie. Even though I'm not a bonified Trekkie, it looked like it would be good. It was soooo good! I want to see it again. My mom and dad are totally into Star Trek. They used to watch all the series. I want to go see it with them, and see if they like it. My brother's friend was there, whom I happen to think is extremely good-looking (Lord help me if he ever read this blog!). Yeah, unfortunately, I was looking slightly marmish because my brother told me to dress "business casual". While his friend's date was in a sexy top and pencil skirt. I didn't even try to compete. I just chalked it up as a loss. My second loss when it comes to that guy! Oh well...

It was a good weekend! I had fun, met new people, and got be a ghostbuster, who can complain about that?!
