  • Mood:
So. Back from Anchorage.

OMG SO MUCH FUN!

It started out with getting_weary saying a couple weeks ago that she was thinking of going to Anchorage to get her hair cut and would I like to go with her?

Sure, said I, for I needed a haircut as well.

After much planning and re-planning and rehashing and gnashing of teeth, which I will spare you because it is long and complicated, yesterday morning at about 7:15, she came to pick me up at my house and we drove to Anchorage, arriving at around 12:30 Holy run-on sentence, Batman.

We checked into the hotel, which is right across from one of the malls. We shopped. I bought a shirt and a CD and shoes. We took a break and went back to the hotel and rented a movie on the in-room movie service (The Devil Wears Prada). She then took me out to dinner (Mexican, right across from the hotel) and got pleasantly buzzed (me, on a mango margarita and she on a daquiri). We then headed over to Walmart for some "drunken shopping." I got a new purse (as the clasp on my other one is broken), an eyelash curler (shut up), a DVD, and a toy for Summer. Then we got back to the hotel (and the comfy, comfy, ohsocomfy hotel beds--no, really, I'm serious) and went to bed.

Woke up this morning around 8 and kicked around the room for a bit, got some continental breakfast, and then headed across the street to Petco (more to kill time than anything else, as the liquor store next door didn't open till 10) and had a wonderful time looking at the ferrets and birds and fish and cats and hamsters and orangutans, and sloths, and breakfast cereals and frogs and stuff. There was one lunatic little dwarf hamster whose tiny hamster mind had obviously snapped, because his entire hamster day consisted of this:

HAMSTER: *runs to food dish, leaps inside, runs to house, runs to exercise wheel*

EXERCISE WHEEL: SQUEAKY SQUEAKY SQUEAKY SQUEAKY SQUEAKY

HAMSTER: *catapults himself from wheel, runs to food dish, leaps inside, runs to house, runs to exercise wheel*

EXERCISE WHEEL: SQUEAKY SQUEAKY SQUEAKY SQUEAKY SQUEAKY

HAMSTER: *catapults himself from wheel, runs to food dish, leaps inside, runs to house, runs to exercise wheel*

EXERCISE WHEEL: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. SQUEAKY SQUEAKY...

US: Okayyyy...movin' on.

We went to the liquor store (a Mecca, as getting_weary called it, and she was right) and she picked up some wine for her mom and I got some pomegranate liqueur for my mom, as today is her 29th birthday, and then we headed to the other mall.

We spent sometime trying to find a hair salon that would do our haircuts simultaneously, as we were one a bit of a schedule, but all the salons had only one stylist available, so I went to one salon and she went to the other. Our haircuts got done at about the same time, and, I might add, we look FABULOUS.

And then we shopped some more, and I got some more tops and a pair of jeans that actually FITS. And then we ate lunch at Red Robin and drove home. Got here around 7:30.

And here I am.

And it is good.

And I'm a little nervous because I start my new job tomorrow so I'm a little worried that they won't like me and hiring me was a mistake and I'll flub something up or burn down a building but it's okay I'm good I'm fine I'm okay no problem man I'm fine.
