Okay, before I get into this weekend, let me state for the record that I found another poster that I need to get. I don’t know where I’d put it; I don’t have anywhere available in my apartment. But it calls to me. It says, “Buy me! Buy me!” It does this with unrelenting intensity.
Thus far, I have successfully exercised my will against it. I’m not sure how long I can hold out.
This weekend, Jenn and I went to a costume party. I went as a ninja; Jenn went as Mary Katherine Gallagher. Her costume was way better than mine, I think, but only because I ended up making my costume out of a sweat suit.
The party itself was very cool. There were probably 15 people over at my friend Jason’s house playing pool and air hockey and generally having a good time. Great food, too, which I’ve come to expect at Jason’s parties. He and his wife, Tracy, really know how to kick it up.
Other costumes at the party include: a Musketeer, two medieval ladies, a whole herd of army soldiers, and an Oompa Loompa. I was particularly pleased with the Oompa Loompa costume as it probably held the most childhood-memory-value of all of them. (Besides the fact that the movie was great, I dated a girl 4’4” tall a while ago and tried to get her to dress up as an Oompa Loompa, but she absolutely refused. I thought it would have been a great costume. Oh, well. It was reasonably cathartic when one of the partygoers showed up as an Oompa Loompa.)
I’m a still irritated with Amazon. I picked up my email today to find that they rejected my credit card again. I’ve tried two different cards, both of which have been rejected. I called the respective credit card companies and found that the cards haven’t even been tried. Argh. So I went to contact Amazon to find out what’s going on, but you can only email them, you can’t call them. I emailed them, now I have to wait up to 24 hours so that they can tell me (I’m sure) that they don’t know what the damn problem is and I should call the credit card company.
The irony is, you know the card that they keep rejecting? Yeah, well, on Saturday they successfully billed that card and shipped a whole other order I had placed with them. So I know the card’s good. It’s their stupid software. Bitches.
