Wow, it's finally Friday! I get to go home to see my sweet hubster and my lil furry babies, I'm so excited!
This week has been interesting to say the least! Let me elaborate a bit starting with my St. Patrick's Day night. (Yes the day/night thing makes perfect sense)
So after eating sushi in Elko (I know, sushi in Elko? It's true) we walk next door to this lil happenin joint where a bunch of leprechauns lured us in with their promises of rainbows and pots of gold. Of course we didn't care for the gold, I mean hello? We work for a gold mine, we could get gold anytime right? So I went in for the rainbows.
I'm all about the rainbows.
The whole town of Elko must have showed up because there were about 50 people there!
The bag piper dudes in thier kilts. They say they wore them the traditional way but I don't believe them, it was WAY to cold for that!
Oh, and I learned that all leprechauns are liars, I don't see any rainbows here do you?
Anyway, so I am a little concerned about this colleague of mine. He is from our office in Canada so I just met him in person this week for our project and he is an interestin fella!
The first day in town he made us stop at the pharmacy so he could pick himself up some booze for his hotel room. Wha? Booze in the pharmacy? I've never seen such an animal! I was definitely not in Kansas...er...Utah anymore.
So every night after work, he got drunk BEFORE we went to dinner. EVERY TIME. And the drunker he got, the worse his accent got so I couldn't understand him at all. St. Patty's day was probably the worst of his drunkenness:
So the next day at work we had this conversation:
Drunken Colleague: "I am running today."
Dumb Blond (me): "Oh, ok. On the treadmill at the hotel?"
Drunken Colleague: "No, I mean, I don't know how to say this...I am so ashamed of myself."
Dumb Blond: "Oh, don't be ashamed, everyone needs a good run now and then."
Drunken Colleague: "No, I mean...I am not feeling well, my bowels are running and I have...how you say...cramps...do you know where I can get medicine?"
Dumb Blond: "Oh...OH! Um no, I'm sorry maybe in the break room?"
So then I make the poor man tell someone else about his pooping issues in order to get medicine. Luckily, he found some and he was able hinder his running problem for the day.
Since I already had a tour of the brothels the last time I was in town, I stayed clear of those this week. Plus I've been working long hours so I was just way too tired to go check out Sue's Fantasy Club again! And Inez's Dancin & Diddling was always closed when I got off work everday anyway. Everyone there probably missed me but hey, I can't please everyone!
So I am heading off to catch my flight now, I can't wait to get home and sleep in my own bed and spend a nice relaxing Friday night with my Hubby. Who knows, maybe we'll go a little crazy and do two puzzles tonight!
