Crazy to Crazier

So today I was excited because it was Friday and I just wanted to go to work and be done with everything. It was pretty busy all day between the phone calls and people asking questions at the desk and computer that needed to be worked on. I also wasn't feeling 100% after lunch so I disappeared for a moment. I can't even track what makes me feel like that because I basically eat the same things every day or during that week for years!

At some point I had someone calling me, no idea who it was and the second time there was a message. I heard music in the background and then just a lot of noise like fabric on the phone. The last thing I heard was a knock on the door because the timer for the recording ran out. Later one I got a call from Purolator because they had attempted to deliver my box but I wasn't there so I had until 6pm that day to get my box. I thought Canada Post was going to handle the delivery but I guess not. Darn!

I had to arrange to leave work exactly at 4:30PM on the express bus and then catch the next bus to the other end of town where I met my friend's dad. We had the box loaded into the van and he drove me back to my apartment. He talked about how he's level 71 in Skyrim and he's finding it hard to level up because so many of his skills are already at 100 and because you're level 71 leveling a skill that's 23 to 24 barely moves the overall level bar. He also talked about how great the resort was that they went to and he said the good was really good as well. I figure when I have my passport, some vacation time and money I might time and go with them next time (they will definitely be going again!).

So I finally got the box to my apartment and my god there were a lot of pieces! My TV stand had a few pieces but this computer desk was insane! I probably got it back for 6:00PM and I just managed to put it all together and set everything up on it a few minutes before I had to leave for the movies (around 8:30PM). I managed to do a quick vacuum of the carpets and I dusted the desk down with my swiffer. It's funny, the desk was a decent size... then I put my computer on it and it dwarfed the darn thing! I thin Mynx felt a little neglected because I basically came home and started working on the desk. Then I ran out the door after a quick tidy and went to watch Iron Man 3 with my friends.

HA! I just scared Mynx! She was lying next to the desk licking herself and I moved my foot out towards her. You know how a snake can slither quickly across the ground, well Mynx basically did that. She was still on her side but she moved from beside the desk to about a foot away in a second. So funny! Wish I had a video of that one so I could see it again!

Anyways, Now I'm watching the most recent episode of Game of Thrones and then it might be bed time for me! Come tomorrow I'll clean up a bit more and organize thing around my desk, do some laundry and head over to my friend's parent's house for steak and corn on the cob and a sleep over. Seems like it's been a long time since I've seen them...

Must say I'm in awe of all of your energy TG. If it had been me, I'd have parked the parcel somewhere out of sight and procrastinated at least a few weekends over it, before I found the exact right time to assemble it. Slowly in between plenty of breaks! AND then you had time for movies as well. What was the Iron Man 3 like? Very Happy

Strange. I went to see Iron Man 3 also on Friday.
@Dean - like all third series movies, it was not that good. Special effects were good though.

Whaaaat? It was great! I loved all the action and I was really drawn in by the issues Tony Stark was experiencing. While he is a 'super hero' he's also a real person and I liked that they worked in some anxiety issues. I laughed a lot too. "We're connected." Ha! I missed a few minutes because I needed to duck out to the bathroom (seriously, drinks are a bad idea when you go to see a movie). I would definitely see this movie again, even buy it! Shocked

Did you stay past the credits for the real ending? Dream??

... No... I didn't... my friends weren't interested in seeing anything after the credits... now I'm curious! What did I miss???

Looks as though you'll have to buy the movie. Very Happy

Every Stan Lee/Marvel film has a clip after the credits. These are teasers to next movie or clear up something from the movie.
My reason for not liking was somethings were (BAM!) solved/done (not spoiling for others who have not seen) plus as usual each sequel is worse than previous (IMO) and IM3 was no exception.
