All in a weekend’s work.

I hate it when the weekends fly by, but at least that means I had fun? I slept so well last night, yet I’ve still been tired all day. It must have been because of Friday night when I only slept a few hours and had to get up at 8 am the next morning for work. That’s…definitely not fun. Saturday night, I slept like a log. I barely woke up when my dad called me around noon asking him if I was coming over today. I guess I forgot to tell him I wasn’t.

I had an interesting dream last night where I ended up dying. I have those dreams every now and then, no idea why. I’m hoping it’s not a bad omen of any sort, haha. Anyhow, in the dream I was driving. Here, pedestrians have right of way at crosswalk. Technically, if there are pedestrians waiting to cross at a crosswalk, you are supposed to stop and let them pass. It’s not the other way around but many people don’t do it. Either they aren’t aware of the law or they are just too lazy and selfish to stop and let a few people cross. Certain streets have these crosswalks, they’re not all over the city and I don’t mean crosswalk as in those white striped lines at 4 way intersections. These are usually on smaller roads and have a sign beside them. Moving on, in my dream I was driving and all of a sudden this guy and a little girl come out of nowhere and on a crosswalk. I did not see them for some reason and ended up running over the little girl with my car. The next part makes no sense to me but in my dream, I backed up my car afterwards and ran over her again. If that wasn’t bad enough, I went forward after that and ran over her again for the third time. At this point, I get of my car and am freaking out. I’m crying and running around and just plain freaking out. They guy says nothing but has a creepy look on his face. I guess he was supposed to be the girls dad or something. Before I know, this little boy about the same age as the girl comes out with a gun in his hand. I guess he was her brother and shoots me in the head. Weird, right? I tend to dream in third person view so I spent a couple seconds looking at my dead body from above. It’s kind of like how you die in video games you see your dead self for a few seconds afterwards. I usually have very weird dreams that make no sense but I also normally don’t remember my dreams too well in the morning. I’m not sure why I remembered this one well. I guess its the fact that me dying really stuck to me lol.

So, after a long boring day at work Saturday, we had some friends over to watch the UFC fight that night. I was excited, who doesn’t like a good fight :) It ended up being a Risk battle while waiting for the main event. I’ve never really played a whole game of Risk before, it was a lot of fun.

We had to play with 2 boards, there were 9 of us. This was after everyone finished setting up. The red pieces in North America and South America on the board on the left side are mine.

Preparing for battle!

South America shall be mine soon *insert evil laugh here*

But sadly, I did not win. We didn’t really even finish the game, it was getting too late so we had an all out wipe out war in the end but the dice was not in my favor. I hope I get to do something like this again, it was great :)

The UFC fight went well, no pics though. I didn’t think of taking any pics at the time since I was more into the fight. Jon Jones vs Rashad Evans! My vote was on Jones and although I wasn’t surprised that he won, I was a little disappointed that the fight went on for the full 25 minutes. I had thought it would have been over before that. It’ll be interesting to see what happens next between the two.

I also discovered Game of Thrones last night. I keep hearing people talk about it and that’s good enough to get me into watching/starting something. I originally thought I did not have HBO. I actually still don’t know what channels I have and what channels I don’t have but it turns out I do and Comcast was even nice enough to put the entire first season of Game of Thrones on HBO on Demand. I only got to watch the first episode. If I hadn’t been so tired, I would have wanted to watch at least a couple more. I can see why people like the series, it’s well done. I can’t say too much for the story line yet but the first episode was good enough to get me hooked. This will give me something to watch for a little while. Ever since Spartacus, Walking Dead, and American Horror Story stopped airing, I haven’t been able to find anything to watch on tv.

After sleeping for 12 hours (yes, it was a great sleep minus the dream) I went out with a couple friends. We ended up going to a Thai restaurant and renting Harold and Kumar: A Christmas Story on RedBox. I had probably only eaten at a Thai restaurant 2-3 times in my life. It’s not that I dislike the food, but I’m a bigger fan of other Asian cuisines. This restaurant was pretty good. The service was a bit on the slow side but there was only one person waitressing given that it’s a Sunday.

We got a shrimp combination rice dinner to split.

And I ordered a cashew nut with chicken dish since I was craving nuts for some odd reason. Both were fairly decent. I tend to like my dishes to be a bit more heavy in flavoring and both these were not. This is not to say it wasn’t delicious. I was very satisfied with my choice.

This is what probably made my day, mang0 bubble tea. They had so many flavors that I wanted to try but I opted for the mango flavored. It was soooo good. I haven’t had bubble tea in a long time much less a good bubble tea. Here, you just don’t find awesome asian foods everywhere. You’re lucky if you find even one. I might have to stop by every now and then again if I’m in the neighborhood just to get a bubble tea. My friends ordered a strawberry and a honeydew one that were equally as good. I finished this up in no time.

Harold and Kumar: A Christmas Story was a lot of fun although I liked Guantanamo Bay a lot more. I don’t think I’ve seen all of White Castle although I’m though I’ve seen most of it. Dumb movies will still always give me a good laugh. It was a nice way to end the night.

I’m going to make it a goal to start doing some kind of work out daily starting tomorrow. I’ve been doing some serious slacking the last couple of weeks and my body is starting to feel lazy again.

On another note…

I’m on Google images :)

Now time to go watch more Game of Thrones.
