There is nothing like a Weekend Updates on a Tuesday. You know, I haven’t done a Weekend Updates in a few weeks. I guess mostly because the past few weekends have consisted of studying; and that makes for a really boring Weekend Updates. As you can see, I am doing you guys a favor. You can thank me later. Alright, let’s get into this Weekend Updates, shall we?
As I’ve mentioned about 20 times, this weekend is graduation. Of course, no graduation should go uncelebrated and this includes MBA gradations. Friday night some of my school buddies and I went out to celebrate completing school. It was a very fun evening! I believe there was about eight of us, well seven that actually went to school and one random dude. No joke! A random guy came out to celebrate with us. Actually, it was a guy’s friend who was in town for weekend.
The evening started out here, for some oyster nachos. Then we decided to head here for dinner. By the way, I don’t know what has happen to this establishment but I was very disappointed with my salad. My $13.00 salad consisted of 4 pieces of steak, iceberg lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, and some croutons; which is fine if that is what I’d ordered!!! I was mad! I was suppose to receive toasted sweet pecans, dark green lettuce, lots steak, and…well it’s just a way better salad than what I was given. After the disappointing meal we headed here. I wasn’t too impressed with this place. It was fun, but not worth all the hype it’s received around town. I mean, it’s a 3 story bar with 350 beers.
Saturday morning I was up at the butt crack of dawn, or 8:40am. However, I rushing around like a mad woman trying to get to a review session that started at 9. I made it, but about 15 minutes late. Trust me, I didn’t miss anything. After two hours of accounting and finance I was ready to stab my eye out. I didn’t, because I need both eyes.
Sadly, for me the rest of Saturday was not exciting. But unlike me, my family was spending an exciting weekend shopping and eating. And to make matters worse, my extended family was at the lake enjoying the sun. I would like to give a shout out to the extended family, mostly The Cousin. She pretended like I was with them enjoying the sun. This is me with them on the boat.
Saturday afternoon I tried to call my family, to give them the bored sob story, and they didn’t care. My dad said that they were going to dinner and he’d call me back, which he didn’t. So therefore, my family is not getting a shout out…only the extended family. Besides, my family doesn’t even read this blog, only the extended family reads my wise thoughts. Anyway, Saturday evening I did find two friends that felt sorry for me. Hey, the sob story finally worked on someone. They graciously allowed me to eat dinner with them. There’s nothing like a big greasy cheeseburger with great company when you’re bored out of your mind. It was one of the best hamburgers I’ve ever had. Oh, and we had fried pickles. LOVE fried pickles.
NOTHING. Oh, I did eat another cheeseburger. It was from a different place; not quite as good, but way better than Friday night’s food and better than cooking something myself.
Edit: Saturday afternoon my WONDERFUL friend Holly had coffee with me. Actually, neither one of us got coffee but it was nice to see my friend in person, we don't see each other as much. I apologize for not noting this in the post. It was a highlight for sure.
