Friday: November 6th, 2009-
Started out with an innocent trip to the movie theater after work. I was excited to see the new alien, sci-fi movie "The Fourth Kind" starring Milla Jovovich. Well Holy Shit!!!! Never did I expect to sit through a movie full of documented footage and audio of actual alien abduction(s).
I was wrought with agony for this woman, as well as on the edge of my seat with my hair standing on end--I have never been more frightened by a movie than this. I could not even find the words to describe how unnerved and shaken I was by the very VERY disturbing footage I had just witnessed.
Needless to say, I've now become a little freaked out by my insane owl collection and the fact that I've woken every night this week around 3:30am (you must see the movie to feel my unease).
Side Note: Since last Friday, I've managed to do some research to which I've found many attacks on this movie and it's authenticity. To a point, it's made me rest a bit easier knowing that there is a good chance the footage is a hoax. However, it still does not negate my belief in aliens, and the existence of life elsewhere. But can someone explain what the heck is goin' on in Nome, Alaska already???

It's a carnival theme, hence the name-complete with a lady on stilts, acrobats, a juggler.

To make the evening even more eventful, it turned out there was a movie screening in progress at Carnival. Shortly after our arrival, the screening let out, and those VIP types came out to mingle and play w/the rest of the commoners.
And that's when Bridget and Jason took on Christopher McDonald at the spray gun game.
Jason kicked his ass BIG TIME!
Another friend talked a bit about prizes with Marty McFly's mom--uh, I mean Lea Thompson.
And BF had the pleasure of spotting this girl, whoever she is???? (J/K guys, of course I know who she is)
By midnight I was feeling insanely tired. We ended w/a diner dinner and a cab ride home. And then I passed out, and passed out hard.
Saturday: November 7th, 2009-
I snoozed for well over 12 hours Friday into Saturday. I woke up sometime around 1:00pm in the afternoon! Wow, maybe I had a hectic week and just didn't realize it...or maybe there was something else deep at work taking over my body??? hmmmm, aliens?
When I finally woke up and started my day, I really just wanted to do a little shopping at Atlantic Center near my house. (Lots of coupons to lots of the stores there, so shop till you drop! Yeah!!!)
I also felt like trying out one of my summer outfits for Fall. I was not sure how well a cotton skirt would read w/a November appropriate wardrobe, but when out with no one but BF, why not give something different a try?

Of course, who am I to go without a wardrobe issue of some sort? This time, the skirt kept catching on the tights--even though I WAS wearing a slip. But then the skirt would work it's way up higher and the edge of the slip would peek out. Aargh!
Whatever, I just kept my coat on the entire time I was shopping and no one was any wiser.
And shopping! ooooh, I hadn't been shopping in so long really, considering I grounded myself from unnecessary purchases throughout October. So I kinda went a little "KAR-A-ZEE!", but with the coupons I actually saved over 50% on everything I purchased! Yeah, maybe I picked up 7 shower gels at Bath and Body Works, maybe I bought some new things at Victoria's Secret, maybe I found a cute $7.99 skirt at Marshall's, and maybe I bought some spa foot stuff at Target--so be it!
Finished the evening with Wings at BW3's and Saturday Night Live on the boob tube! Then I passed out, dead to the world--for no good reason at all.
Sunday: November 8th, 2009-
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN CONCERT DAY!!!!
Oh how I'd been waiting for this day.....
(Thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org, whoever that is--nice footage)
My entire wardrobe that day was based around going to THEE concert. I payed a little tribute to 'Born in the USA', or so I led myself to believe that's what my outfit was derived from.
So I teased my hair a little moreso than usual, put a hankie in my back pocket, and threw on the American Flag tee. I mean if ever there's a time to wear an American Flag (other than the 4th of July), a trashy see-thru crop top, and big hair--it's a ROCK CONCERT! And my boy Bruce, he's well worth my effort!
Oh, but of course this is not exactly how I went out of the house. While the temps were quite mild last Sunday, I still needed a jacket of some sort. I chose the blazer I snagged a while back in the Boys' dept. at Target....yeah that works.

But, to my disappointment,
The Boss never played "Thunder Road".
Instead, this tour consists of them playing a different album in its entirety each night. My night was "The River" , while not bad, I couldn't help but feel I was missing out on a lot of the other songs I would've liked to hear.
But you know what? It doesn't matter.....it was a great concert; or the first hour of it. I don't know what the rest was like; I had to leave early.
Because around 9:30pm on Sunday November 8th is when good ol' Swine Flu rolled into Nickie-Town.
And then began the sickest week of my life (not counting when I had mono for 3months when I was 19)
(And now I can't help but wonder if this was why I was sleeping so much the entire weekend? And when and where did I pick this gross thing up? Maybe shopping? Maybe the movies? God only knows)
