My house had a Southern-theme party this Saturday. It was a smashing success, and I learned I can make an ambrosial butterscotch pie and dynamite mint juleps.
After the party all my friends went to Heroes at TTs. I've had fun there in the past, but lately I haven't wanted to go out much. Also, I spent a lot of money on the party, and TTs is notoriously expensive. The last thing I wanted to do, in fact, was go to Heroes. Derek and I watched an episode of Deadwood instead and went to bed. It was exactly what I wanted to do, but still this morning when I saw all the fun facebook pictures of everyone out, I felt like a huge loser. It's that classic FOMO (fear of missing out), or maybe I'm just worried I work too much or don't have enough fun.
Whatever it is, it's probably not worth losing much sleep over. I have a decent amount of fun, and a lot of my work now is fun, too. And I'm saving to go on tour and for school. I deserve to be lame, dammit
In the geeky fun department, I got my birthday present in the mail this week. I can already do two finger rolls and play "The Streets of Laredo." Watch out.
